This book was published the year I started working as an assistant at Simon & Schuster. Everyone was quite excited about it and I believe it hit the bestseller list. It was also one of the first books I took home for free. Imagine making absolutely nothing but getting to take home hardcover books whenever you wanted. It was a perk I never imagined when I got the job and it’s one I still love. I think I liked this book initially because it was free but I loved it as soon as I started reading it and it has stuck with me for years. I gave away that first edition to someone I don’t even remember and over the years have given away many subsequent copies as well (another perk of working in publishing) but I never kept a copy for myself. The story was so lodged in my head I didn’t ever need to re-read it. But if you are reviewing something, it’s always good to have it to hand so I borrowed a yellowed mass-market paperback from a friend. Even in a crinkly odd-smelling ancient copy, the story is still the great one I remembered.
