I wonder if I hadn't guessed the ending if I would have felt differently about the story. However, I did, and although it added another layer to the story, I didn't enjoy it as much as other short stories of his.

Not sure if it's something I haven't noticed in his writing before but the rather proper, old-timey language describing the ..umm..excitement felt naughtier.
