I suspect that this went over my head I've read many classics and found them just as interesting and engaging as everyone always claimed they were, the outdated prose and and insight into the culture of the past adding to the experience. Unfortunately the sense of difference was all I got from this book, the apparent lack of plot direction left me struggling to finish a very short book. I didn't engage with the protagonist and found his rapier wit and insight somewhat lacking. It may have made a lot more sense when written and captured the cultural zeitgeist and if so I wish I'd read it then.
