it kept me on the edge of my seat.
I loved this book the first time I read it and I still love it. The characters are rounded, and the world is full of depth to me. an A+ read in my books.

A classic, but not appropriate for all ages...
This book was a childhood favorite of mine -- but in retrospect, reading it as an adult, I realize this probably might not be the sort of book which should (as it was in my childhood) be recommended to 8 year-olds. There's a lot about love, ambition, responsibility and loyalty -- as well as learning to both love and take delight in the accomplishments of others. Excellent lessons for children who hope to have pets, as well as for later in life when it's time for them to raise children of their own. But there's some pretty graphic violence and a few frank discussions of sexual activities that...made me pause when I thought about recommending it to a child i know. Read this for yourself and decide how you feel about loaning it to children. For my part, I'll be moving on to the rest of the series again! The reader is good, but not exceptional -- speeding it up to 1.5x or 2x might also help.
