My sister gave me this book for Christmas, and I had seen 2 TV versions before I read this. Wishbone, which was very good (I always love Wishbone), the more modern-ish Steve Martin one. It is so nice to finally read the book and learn all of the details left out on film. For example the story of the Cass brothers and their money schemes, plus Godfrey’s situation with Nancy Lammeter. But even more nice to know is Silas’ background, the story of his epileptic fits and his horrible friend who kicks him out to steal his fiancée. Not as nice to know is how very sad his condition has become, and how much the villagers fear/dispise him.
*New layout btw. I like this one, it is more airy and spread-out. Reminds me of imagining and reading books.
