The story has a reasonable pace and the outcome is satisfactory, despite the death of a major character.
The current edition lacks the fine line illustrations in previous editions, which added to the impact. I can see that the cover has been changed to presumably appeal to an older audience, but it is dark and indistinct and does not immediately arouse the interest of the prospective reader. Don't judge this book by its cover, as it is a very good read.
