Just OK

This well-known story was entertaining enough as a reading. The performer, however, was not quite well read enough to be able to pronounce several of the words correctly even from the British point of view. Having seen the movie, I was in hopes that the book would be of more substance. To a point, it was, but still had not enough substance to make a lasting impression.
