My Ántonia is considered one of the greatest novels by American writer Willa Cather. It is the final book of the prairie trilogy of novels by Cather that also includes O Pioneers! and The Song of the Lark.

My Ántonia tells the stories of several immigrant families who move out to rural Nebraska to start new lives in America, with a particular focus on a Bohemian family, the Shimerdas, whose eldest daughter is named Ántonia. The book's narrator, Jim Burden, arrives in the fictional town of Black Hawk, Nebraska, on the same train as the Shimerdas, as he travels to live with his grandparents after his parents have died. Jim develops strong feelings for Ántonia, something between a crush and a filial bond, and we view Ántonia's life, including its struggles and triumphs, through his eyes.

    " I read this book in high school. but i read it again this year and it surprised me. I enjoyed it more reading it for my pleasure than as an assignment for some class. "

    " I really enjoyed reading this book..and then I went to the book club discussion about it...and was making all these passionate comments about the characters in the book...and then someone realized that I was acting like these were real people...which I totally thought they were...I had read the entire thing, thinking it was a nonfiction book! While I thought the story was true, I found it fascinating, but once I knew it was fiction, I thought it was rather slow and disappointing. Funny how that little bit of info completely ruined the book for me...and made me feel a bit idiotic. "

    " I've heard fantastic things about this book for years and finally read it. It was a nice, gentle read but I can't really say I loved anything about it except that Cather presented a strong woman as a central character, which is rare in literature. "
