The romance element is a bit purple (Victorian, after all) and the "action" element a bit implausible (OWH Jr saw the elephant, not sure Sr ever did). On the whole one was happy to get through it, though there were some pleasant - even memorable - passages.
This specific free edition is, unfortunately, marred by typos. They are limited to what cannot be controlled by a spell-checker, specifically proper names; it is quite annoying that about half the times it appears, the name "Venner" is misspelled "Veener" - sometimes in the same sentence as a correct spelling. Perhaps worst is, at the very end, a final poignant detail is rendered puzzling by rendering "E.V." as "E.Y." - watch out for it, it's on the last page. If someone has the ability to correct this free edition, search-and-replace "Veener" with "Venner" and fix that last puzzler!
