Enjoyed: Very yes
Seriousness: Gently satirical
Difficulty: Mostly easy, though you do have to re-read some sentences a couple of times to get the hang of their old-fashioned grammaticals
Recommend: To anyone with a touch of romance in their heart. A colleague once described it as the greatest novel in the english language, and I find it hard to disagree with him.
Up next … I thought I’d go with a change of tack and try Catch-22. I’m also planning on reading Austen’s Lady Susan, which isn’t on the list, and I know nothing at all about. After that, I think it’s time for a re-shuffle of the (remaining) list.
