A thoroughly amusing book: beginning the book with very limited familiarity allowed a very open mind, and I found myself surprised at all places that I had to laugh out loud. While it was not all hilarious, there was never a boring scene. Although it is quite long, the length is not a problem if you have the time to sit back and enjoy this classic.
