Review by PeterGWard
Beware the Collector's Library version of this book. It is an abridged version which is so badly abridged that I spotted that large chunks were missing as I read it. This was bad enough that I felt almost sure I had actually skipped parts of the book without realising it, even though I knew I hadn't. I got the unabridged Penguin classics version from the library and read that afterwards, because otherwise it's a great story.
