This is the kind of book that sticks with you. Fortunately I was lucky enough to have the full book. If you are going to read this, ensure your copy has 21 chapters, as the original publication in the states only has 20. It was believed that the American audience didn't need the last chapter, which sort of serves as a coda to the entire story. It was believed that American readers didn't need the "happy ending." However by cutting this last chapter, you lose really the lessons of the book.

Although the language is sometimes hard to follow, after a while, you grow accustomed to it, and understand it as well as proper english.
