In my reviews I try neither to persuade nor to dissuade others. I believe the art of reading is a very personal experience and that my opinion should not intrude upon others enjoyment. I merely state how I felt while reading and I will allow others to decide for themselves. This is why I will not present a play-by-play description.
I will only offer a few basic details to help you decide if what I present is worth your time.
Brilliant! I had forgotten how exciting this story was. I'm glad it still entertained me after all these years. There's also a very good fudge recipe in the back guaranteed to put you in a sugar coma. ;)
