I must be having a good run with books because this is another one I couldn't seem to put down. I was glued to it. It was so well written and the story still has a place in this day and age.
My only problem with it was the part where the "book" came along. That wasn't exactly boring but it was enough to make me want to go to sleep (or perhaps it was just late at night and I'd literally been reading for hours) and yet I think that the story couldn't have done without it, well for some people anyway. In any case it didn't last long and the book carried on perfectly as it had prior to it. Even the ending was well done.
