Not as good as I thought it was thirty years ago, but still fairly charming.

A fun read. I read it in less than an hour. I was a bit disappointed since I had high hopes of it being a good cheesy like the movie based off it. "The Canterville Ghost" but like the book "The Princess Bride" it pales in comparison to the Hollywood adaptation.

I suspect this must get interesting only after you've read "The Canterville Ghost."
