The book is just a light, fun, and comic fairytale. Trying to make it more than that seems silly.
I also got this edition from the library. I got so bored reading the overly long introductions I haven't even started the book. Add me to the short list of those who had never heard of the book or seen the movie and don't plan to ever do so.
