    Good story, though a bit aged since it was written from 60 years ago, with interesting characters and a good imagination. Language is also a bit dated, but nothing serious, mostly colloquialisms. Story line is continuously interesting and narration was really good! Differentiation in voice tone and fluctuation was great, giving each persona a distinct characteristic. Descriptions in the story are colorful and metaphorical. Very good book and narration all around!
