Read in February, 2011

This book is Old School. Like, seriously Old School. It is pretty much a Melodrama (complete with a List of Characters at the beginning), the characters being more like walking, talking Ideals than actual people you might run into. Our Hero is so Heroic that even the Villian can't help respecting him! I'm sure some people would find this book trite, but I actually really enjoyed it. Not that I think life, or any real people, were ever really like this, but it was so fun to imagine! The story was very comforting and pleasant, and even if you can't see it happening in real life, it was nice to think it might have been. This one is considered a "classic", and if you haven't read it, I would recommend it!
