My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a wonderful abridged version of the classic novel. This version is perfect reading for those who are new to the classics, especially older children and teenagers. I read this version with a class of 5th graders and they found it both interesting and enjoyable, as did I.
As for the novel itself, well, I think a sufficient amount of words have gone into describing that over the years; all that I need say is: if you have not read it, read it now.
