I have read this book as part of my exam in the German language, before I started being a teacher. The copy I used was written in so called gothic German. I remember I loved to discover the meaning of the characters used. It took weeks before I had finished the book. It was a pity I had to return it to the library.

Ich kann vollkommen nachvollziehen, warum dieses Buch 1913 in den Bestsellerlisten stand. Sehr fluffiger Schreibstil. Geradezu Popliteratur. Mit einem versöhnlichem Ende.

Der Tunnel ist tatsächlich im Buch fertig gebaut worden... mehr verrate ich aber auch nicht zum Inhalt.
