After the grueling chore of Stranger in a Strangeland I had to read something light off my 50 Classics list that I knew I would enjoy.  Cyrano de Bergerac was both and within arm’s reach so I polished it off over the weekend.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading the English language version. I only regret that I am completely ignorant of French and could not enjoy it in its original form.  My literary palate is now thoroughly cleaned of the Heinlein after taste, moving on to Watership Down (which I’ve never read and only seen).
