Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame

Read for book group and for Children’s Book Week

Good story, very literary, full of literary devices. It was a little too wordy for me. I prefer short and concise to long and detailed. It wasn’t too bad though and I just skipped a paragraph or two if it was too much for me.

I’m glad I finally got around to reading this classic, I do think it’s important to read some older material to see how literature has changed. Speaking of which, I had trouble understanding some things that were said. I’m guessing it is because it was written in 1908 when people spoke differently. (hint hint to anyone looking for a 1900’s book for Decades 08)
