I read this when I was 8, and I have to say that I struggled, but it has an absolutely brilliant, and very unique plot. Definitely worth buying for anybody ages 10-85! The film version is also brilliant, but it's a shame that they didn't make the other two books into films. But although the plot it quite hard to follow sometimes, it is a fabulous book!

User Review  - Noah - Goodreads

I'm halfway through this book and I can't get over how almost every time someone says something, the quote is followed by an exclamation point. It truly makes the story sound ridiculous. Read full review
