I'm probably the last American to finally read this gem of a book. I loved it so much, I started again at the beginning as soon as I finished yesterday. Fred took this week off work and I was constantly interrupting him from his own book, so I could read passages aloud. He always complied, listened and laughed at the right places, even when I knew he was at a good part in his own book.
