I think that I read the Glenny translation the first time I read this and the P&V translation this time. Perhaps I am not picky enough about my translations but both worked for me.

I agree about Margarita being the bravest and best character. She is my favorite character. I laugh at Ivan Homeless and the others characters do come off as puppets to be manipulated at times, but I truly care about what happens to Margarita. I have read most of Bulgakov's other work and I think it is well done but minor writing. In his last novel he managed to combine his style and sense of humour with a character I could truly connect to which makes this book his masterpiece.
