As much fun to read as an adult as it was when I read it when it first came out. The writing is fantastic and brings so much information and atmosphere into a very small book, and I love how there's a sinister sense of doom and dread from the very beginning. Most of the story is improbable, but still completely enjoyable. I wasn't crazy about the portrayal of Charlotte's family (it's just predictable to me), but the rest of the book is fantastic.
