When it comes to classic books I am quite ignorant in respect of I know little about them. S I set about picking up some of the old books and at least having an attempt at reading them to see what the fuss is about. I leant something new! I thought this was going to be a novel, so it was a surprise to find the book is a series of stories/songs that I later learnt were produced for a magazine.
There are a handful of characters whose names will be familiar, but the stories are somewhat different to what I thought they were going to be and in a nice way. I thought I would have to trudge through the book, but it wasn't like that. There are a few different thoughts as to hidden meanings in the stories, but I just took it for what it was and didn't try interpreting it. A book worth reading for enjoyment
