Which translation of the classic book "The Way of A Pilgrim & The Pilgrim Continues His Way" do you like best due to the language? R.M. French's version, Helena Bacovin's, or Nina A. Toumanova's edition? Which is more suitiable and more readable for modern readers?

I read it a few years ago. I think it was a Penguin edition?

I didn't have any readability issues with the French translation, so I never bothered reading another one.

The Olga Savin edition, which Achronos links to, is the best. Not only does it include both books but it has an appendix from the Russian edition containing passages from the Philokalia referred to in the book, as well as the narrative of Abba Philemon in its entirety.
