I like this story. When in school we read it, that variant seemed too boring and simple, but original is quite different from it.
This story is really worth it to read it. I was so sorry Sir Simon, I liked Mr. Oris, hooligans-twins, dear Virginia and Duke in love. First, the word "Duke" seemed to me a strange and uncomfortable, but by the end of the story, I got used to it. As to the method of Frank: This is the first book to read in a style and at first it was very difficult to read with all the footnotes and brackets and unexpected places, but in the end had already stopped paying attention to it.
