So I started reading the first chapter of this book before I took a mid term this afternoon in an attempt to calm my nerves and so far it's pretty good! I read Brideshead Revisited and LOVED it so I picked this one up. It's pretty short.

Has anyone read it and what were your thoughts on it? So far I'm only one chapter in and it seems like it would make a great movie! So many little things that are perceptory and funny (like the sandwiches in with the frozen animals) that I think would relay really well to the screen.

Well, I'm anxious to hear what other people think of this book. :)

I remember reading the book years ago and seeing the movie.
