Brat Farrar was one of the very first adult mysteries (as opposed to, say, Nancy Drew) I ever read, and I still think it's one of the most perfectly crafted stories ever. There just isn't a single word in it that's out of place. I read it again often, and even though I know the ending, I enjoy it thoroughly every time.
