I'd read about this book being extremely popular with soldiers during WWII, so I had to give it a try. Plus, I always enjoyed Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little, so why not. This collection of essays mainly featuring his move to the country and taking up the life of a farmer were extremely enjoyable. Normally I would knock out a book like this in a day but this one took a few days just because I couldn't read for too long due to the solidness of the writing. Very enjoyable.
