This is one of the best books I've ever read! My first copy of it has fallen to pieces where I've read it so much, a friend bought me a new copy and that's looking a bit sorry for itself now and I bought a copy of it in Polish to help me learn the language and enjoy this absolutely perfect book in more than one language.
If you haven't read this book, you have been sorely deprived and my heart goes out to you. Please, I beg of you, read it. You will fall in love page after page.
