An old classic which still delivers
on 6 March 2014
Having not read this since I was a child I was unsure I'd still enjoy it. Yes, like most people I have seen the 1960s movie about 157 times but was unsure whether the book would come up to its high standards afetr all this time.
My verdict? Yep it was still a great read. Some action happening at nearly every page turn. A few suprises that aren't in the film (particularly at the beginning and end of the book) so well worth a read even if you know the film initimately.
