Yep, it’s still just as brilliant as I remember it!

Grahame’s writing is more than just pleasant and easy, he also uses a fun trick of swinging round his POV from a standard “medium shot” (to quote a film term) to brief instances of very specific POV such as when mole nearly drowns and can see the sun up from under the river or when we see the driver of the car hunched over the wheel. It puts you ‘in’ the story.
