Brilliant - but you must be prepared for the archaic English and heavy doses of Philosophy.
Take it easy, and read a few pages at a time, and you will be rewarded by one of the greatest yarns of all time.
Of course the film (with Gregory Peck in his finest role, despite what the Critics said) is my favourite film and is a masterful adaptation, with much of the dialogue straight from the book.
The book is well worth the effort, and gives much food for thought, as well as being rattling good story.
