Top customer reviews
Reading this as a very mature adult was even better than reading it as a child or a youth. The simple story shines all the better in our rushed and jaded age of info and activity overwhelm. This story might be called simplistic, and it is, and that's part of the charm. The light and clean storyline is like the kite string that starts the building of a bridge across the canyon: a simple pathway is the easiest one to latch onto and travel on in hope.
So the story is just a fun tale on the surface, with layers also; thus it is an enduring treasure.
