read this - you won't regret it
This is actually the first time I've felt the need to review anything, having been moved into sharing my opinion on this brilliant novel after finishing it. There is so much to love about this charming tale; for me the two main characters and their interaction made it the most enjoyable read I've had in a long while. The fast paced storyline and environmental descriptions of suffering and endurance are written so well that in places I found myself laughing, feeling sad, touched and horrified, while turning the pages at a considerable pace! An absolute gem - read it and you wont be dissappointed!
