This is one of the best literary stories of all time! John Bunyan did an excellent job using the literary technique of allegory. This book has spiritual insights to help encourage and teach the reader. The plot is very engaging and the reader will enjoy the characters, especially Christian. This is a must read!

I've always found this story inspiring. The English takes some getting use to at first but if you work through the first few sections you'll start picking up on the rhythm of the words.
