Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/18/2014

    " I love this story. It is sweet and old fashioned. It falls in the genre of "orphan boy is honest and hard-working and makes good". Safe for any age, boy or girl. Adventure, romance, a little history, what could be better. The author was an amateur naturalist and wildlife photographer, and that can be felt in her beautiful descriptions of the location where the story is set, and her knowledge of the plant and animal life common to the area. "

    " It is a cute story. If you are in the mood for a short story that ends with a nice bow tied up around it, then this is a good one for you to read. It was enjoyable and a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy | 2/12/2014

    " i am currently enjoying this book. I miss this type of loyalty and purity in the world! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yara | 2/12/2014

    " This was one of my father's favorite books growing up and one of the few things I have of his is the copy he read as a boy "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 2/1/2014

    " Some say you must read this before you read A Girl of the Limberlost - I say it doesn't mater, I read it after, years after in fact. Freckles is a strong willed young man with much to overcome. You will fall in love with how Gene Stratton-Porter writes, it' like falling into a beautful pirture and never wanting to leave. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cherie | 1/22/2014

    " I loved this book! I cannot say how many times I read it as a young girl. I wore out the cover. I loved Freckles and the Bird Lady. It was such a great story. It had everything,humor,suspense,loyalty,and beauty. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia | 1/17/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ant Soozie | 1/10/2014

    " I loved this book as a child, and since I was born in Indiana, and still have tons of relatives there, it was part of our family tradition to read Gene Stratton-Porter. Very Victorian, but fun to read, if a bit melodramatic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 12/31/2013

    " An old fashioned delight for love, for nature, for the underdog. If you liked Girl from the Limberlost, you will also like this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 12/19/2013

    " Emily warned me and I read it anyways... it's about as sappy, syrupy and sickeningly sweet as you can get and yet I liked parts of it enough to finish it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nora | 12/19/2013

    " A classic must read! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Iman | 12/2/2013

    " I thing the depictions of nature are wonderful and magical. I can see why I loved her books as a child, but now I find the heavy handedness with which she drives home how good the good characters are cloying. "

    " Want to re-read this book I read as a child and enjoyed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Letitia | 4/29/2013

    " Touching and quaint, but a bit over-sentimentalized in many sections. I would have enjoyed this more if the author had been slightly more restrained. "

    " Wow! My mother has talked about this book for years! I can't believe it took me this long to read it! I loved this book. It sucked me right in. I want that same integrity and courage and kindness that Freckles and his Swamp Angel have. Very inspiring book. "

    " I love the books by Gene Stratton-Porter because they were the ones my mother read to me. I remember sitting on the floor, my chin in my hands, imagining the forest and the creatures hidden there. It was my mother's beautiful voice reading Freckles that sparked my own interest in writing. "
