I like a little of this & a lot of that : literary fiction, children's books, young adult, thrillers and mysteries, dystopian novels, sci-fi and fantasy.
I don't like horror or romance novels (how do you tell them apart?)
I read this in 1969 in a children's literature class at university. I couldn't believe I had not read it before. It's such an exciting tale, well written, with unforgettable characters.
