Hmmm. How shall I describe this lovely, leisurely unique book? Is it a cozy fantasy? A whimsical faerie fantasy? A study in layers of personality and morality? All of these and none. It is a classic, however you look at it both in language and in setting. It is not for the action/plot driven reader, but if you take time to digest your English you may love this unique book. See the quote I have entered to determine if you like its intricate but rewarding style

Whatever there was of ridiculous or lovable in each member of the group was distilled into one of these jokes so that at will one could intoxicate oneself with one's friends' personalities--swallow as it were, the whole comic draught of them. And seeing that in these old jokes the accumulation irritation that inevitably results from intimacy evaporated and turned to sweetness, like the juice of the grape they promoted friendship and cordiality.
