"I don't remember when I first read it; I ventured upstairs to the grown-up half of the library (waiting all the time for someone to stop me – was I really allowed?) and wandered the shelves like ... like a rabbit in a field of lettuce. I know for a period in my older childhood I made a point of reading mostly chunksters, the idea being that if I loved it I wouldn't want it to end, and a longer book has a longer time in which to weave its spell."
After that intro who wouldn't want to read the rest of the review? I'm saving it here in my feed so I can find it again easily.
thank you Stewartry, for the reminder of what a great book this is.
