    I am now confused I do not know any what is my preference when it comes to books.When I was a kid, I wanted to read only books with pictures like the illustrated Alice in the Wonderland or Rip Van Winkle Until I read Silas Marner with no pictures and I said, wow, books with no pictures are also great When I was a teenager, I said I don t like to read books that are hard to understand and read by adults until I read Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov and I said, wow, I did not know that there are authors who write this way When I was a young man, I said I do not want thick books because I do not have time for them until I read War and Peace and The Fountainhead and I said, wow, thick books can be really engaging and finishing them can give you a different high When I became a husband, my sex life became busy, I stopped heavy reading and concentrated on my job not on copulating you silly so I just grabbed some easy read bestsellers like The Da Vinci Code , The Kite Runner until my daughter came and I had to read some children s books to her and she loved them but I secretly hated them until I read to her The Little Prince and said, wow, there are still children s books that can speak to me even if I am a grown up man When I becam...

    Two worst things as can happen to a child is never to have his own way or always to have it As a child, I read this book at least four or five times, along with Frances Hodgson Burnett s other childhood stories about Sarah Crewe Little Princess and Cedric Lord Fauntleroy They represented a rite of passage for me as a person and as a reader There is magic involved in coming of age stories where children strive to find the kind of life they are meant to live, against all odds, and I felt deeply satisfied each time I closed one of those books, knowing that the protagonists had once again made it through various challenges to live a better, natural and fulfilled life.So far, so good Some childhood classics are better left alone later, signifying a certain phase that can only be demystified by rereading, leading to bitter disappointment and loss of the initial enchantment I hadn t touched The Secret Garden for decades, as I feared the slightly exaggerated, dramatised plot might put me off, and destroy the magic of my memory But then I happened to discuss a phenomenon among students in a wealthy, over privileged area Many children and teenagers a...

    I first read this wonderful and evocative absolute and utter gem of a story at around the age of twelve and it was likely one of the first longer novels I read entirely in English, not counting those books read entirely for school And I simply adored Frances Hodgson Burnett s The Secret Garden when I read it as a young teenager or rather, a tween , I continued to love it when I reread it multiple times while at university, and I still massively loved the novel when I reread the story for the Children s Literature Group in 2011 and I much continue to love it, having reread it at least twice or so since then And indeed I honestly do think that I have actually enjoyed The Secret Garden even as an adult than the times I read the novel when I was younger and that is definitely saying an awful lot For when I first read The Secret Garden as a young teenager, I was certainly much enchanted by the garden and of course, the Robin , and really liked and enjoyed reading about the Sowerbys, but I did kind of consider both Mary and Colin as somewhat too spoiled and selfish I understood their problems and indeed felt empathy, but I also felt than a bit annoyed at and by them, something that I certainly did not experience as much during my adult rereads Because as an adult read...

    I know this book seems out of place among the fare I usually read, but hey, all I can say is that I like what I like There is some intangible quality to this book that really strikes a chord in me The whole idea of that sickly child being healed with love, attention, and forgive me an LDS joke wholesome recreational activities, just somehow speaks Truth to me I think this book has strong application to today s problems with the rising generation I really believe that kids these days are getting fatter, less healthy, and less disciplined I think that a good romp on the heather and a breath of fresh air would do kids a lot of good.On another level, I really believe that some people are only as sick as they think they are Working in the healthcare field, it s obvious to me that some people find it quit...

    Actual rating 4.5 5 stars.I have vivid memories of reading this renowned children s classic when I was very young I can distinctly recall my shock at reading a book with such an initially dislikable protagonist, the likes of which I had not yet discovered during my few years of reading I was intrigued by the petulant Mary Lennox and was enchanted by her discovery of the secret garden This, I believe, was my my first introduction to dark and brooding main characters, and probably even honed my later love for female Gothic fiction, so I am eternally indebted to it, for that.It has now been many years since my young repeated readings of this book and I tried to divorce these emotions from my present reading Whether or no...

    Where, you tend a rose, my lad, a thistle cannot grow. Originally published in 1911 The Secret Garden is a true children s classic One that adults should read as well Mary Lennox was born in India A plain little girl she was not wanted by her mother or father and consequently handed over to the servants to raise Because her Ayah and the other servants feared her mother would be angry if she was disturbed, Mary was consequently given her own way She soon became a bossy, nasty, little girl who was frail, yellow and most often angry When she was but 10 years of age both her parents and her Ayah succumbed to Cholera, leaving Mary alone with no one to raise her.But Mary has an uncle who lives in England on the Yorkshire moors and she soon finds herself at Misselthwaite Manor Her Uncle lost his wife ten years ago to a tragic accident and since that time is rarely at the manor, choosing instead a life of solitude while travelling So once Mary is left on her own, only this time without an Ayah Through talking and listening to Martha, a young servant at the manor, Mary soon learns about a mysterious secret garden A garden behind a locked gate that no one has opened in ten years And what is the source of that plaintive crying that Mary hears from time to time and everyone else pretends they do not.A secret garden, a hundred room English Manor, the Yorkshire moors, a 12 year old Yorkshire boy bestowed with n...
