Perfect Halloween comedy, amusing any time

It gets off to a slow start, because the plot is complicated and all the characters must make entrances. They it becomes a romp. Well written and well read.

Enjoyed the story, but pity about US narrator

This was one of my mother's favourite books, and she often told me how funny it was, and I have to agree with her - it is genuinely funny, even after all these years.
However, I found it a distraction having an American accent reading the story, in particular because of the mispronunciation of some place names.
But generally - great fun, and very good value!
