I read a more child-friendly version, since I'm only 9-years-old and am in the third grade. It was a Kid's classic book, and had pictures on every other page. I would recommend this book to any young readers, I'd say from about 7 - 10. The novel is more probaly very similar to the adult version, and it was still good. <br><br>The book had sudden twists and turns, and really kept my attention; I didn't want to put it down.
