5.0 out of 5 stars Nearly as accurate as the original edition.
I first read this book as long ago as 65 years and was anxious to read it again. This version is excellent. Most of the editions available today have been drastically altered to add new characters and different sequences of events, and they have spoiled the story. It was refreshing to read again almost the same story as I read all those years ago.

3.0 out of 5 stars A different version...
This is a different translation to the hardback copy (much mended) that I have. Some elements have been changed ie, in this their fist language is French, in the hard back, German. The 'voice' is different and something has been lost. However, it is still an enjoyable read, just wish I could get an exact copy of my hardback - but it is so battered, all the usual info...
