This is one of those books that I think I was supposed to like a lot more than I actually did. I suppose it’s supposed to evoke some kind of nostalgia which I kind of got (the desire for a simpler life). I liked the idea much more than I enjoyed the characters, who generally just annoyed me.
I wish Mr. Toad had started being redeemed much earlier than he was. I wish Ratty hadn’t had that day or so of extreme depression. I wish they hadn’t amassed a literal arsenal to take back Toad Hall.
