I love this book so much. So witty and imaginative from a British writer who was in my opinion the best of his time. The books been widely recognised over here and has been made in so many different form of medias that its there for everyone to enjoy, from the reasonably new film from three years ago to the TV series that was made twenty-four years previously. I was wondering, what with this being an American forum, whether any of you have managed to give this one a read. If you have then please tell your opinions, if not, go out and buy it now!
