Has anyone on here read it?
I first read it when I was about 17, introduced to it plainly as a fan of the 1939 movie. It took me about 6 weeks to read and I remember being absolutely captivated. So I picked it up yesterday, I'm only about 150 pages in but I honestly think its a masterpiece. It almost reminds me of the hysteria surrounding Harry potter when you watch the footage of the movie premiere. Can you imagine seeing this book come to life for the first time?? It must have been astounding!
