A good story. I can see why they based the movies off of this one. The art is also good.

However, there aren't a lot of truly dramatic moments, and the story doesn't seem to have an appropriate climax. It kind of sneaks up on you. I was already at the end of the book before I realized that the baby-stealing episode was supposed to be the climax.

I suppose that is all to be expected, though. It's a year-long story. Difficult to pattern a story across a year like that, particularly when you're so interested in mapping things onto actual dates.
