    " slow and meandering and completely enveloping. it moves a little slow for YA, I'm wondering if it would keep my kids attention, but it's such a magical story and one that my memories will go back to time and time again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy Graham | 2/11/2014

    " Often engaging -- though the author's religious and philosophical bias (toward the powerful "magic" of thoughts over medicine, science, etc.) felt a little preachy at points. I admittedly felt unsettled by the image of children raising themselves (for the most part) and the odd, implicit suggestion that these children "knew better" than most adults, with the notable exception of a friend's mother. "

    " One of my favorite stories. I adore both this book and the movie and have since I was a child. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthea Carson | 1/28/2014

    " I read this with my daughter, who has a hard time finding things she likes but she really enjoyed this story. It inspires the imagination having this secret garden, along with the huge house to explore and the strange crying sounds coming from down the hall. It has a gothic feel, I guess I would call it a gothic children's story. The intrigue of the voice coming from down the hall reminded me of Jane Eyre. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Good Reader | 1/21/2014

    " The Secret Garden is an inspiring tale of the impact that a lone young girl has on the world around her. When Mary Lennox finds herself orphaned and sent to live in her uncle's home, she encounters secrets of darkness and tragedy. When she uncovers a wondrous garden hidden behind a great wall, she wakens her family to the joy of living and loving. I urge you to experience the enchanted paradise of The Secret Garden. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Euisry Noor | 1/12/2014

    " sukaaa... Membaca buku ini jadi lebih menegaskan kembali indahnya keajaiban yang dikandung tanah dan tetumbuhan, hujan, matahari, udara, binatang2, dan alam, dan manusia juga... anak-anak... Jadi pengen berkebun... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jodi | 12/11/2013

    " I wish I'd read this when I was as a kid. (Although, if I had I may have been bizarrely convinced that fresh air and exercise could cure almost anything wrong with you....) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mj Mccoy | 12/6/2013

    " Do children or young adults read these wonderful books any more? They should because it is timeless... "

    " Great book from start to finish! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vikas Nainwal | 3/22/2012

    " My rating for this book is 4.5 stars.It was a beautiful read. I loved it from the start especially the character of Mary Lennox. I would have given it a five stars but i felt Mary's character was sidelined in the end so the rating. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristina Tran | 3/7/2012

    " I had gotten this book in second grade and was completely confused by it. In fifth grade I reread it and understood hoe amazing it was. I loved how she could change and become someone completely different. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carla | 2/17/2012

    " I read this book with my two daughters and was charmed by it all over again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashlea | 2/14/2012

    " I loved this book. I'm not really sure why. K would never have bothered to pick it up on my own and only read it for my Children's Literature class. Now I am surprised that I didn't read it sooner because I really loved the film when I was little and am pleased to say that the book is even better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 12/12/2011

    " I really thought this was a sweet and heart warming book. I had a little trouble with the good ol' Yorkshire speech as it took me a little longer to figure out some of what they were saying, but overall I really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 11/29/2011

    " I started this 2 years ago on my ipod touch and it was a good choice for occasional reading. I love the messages of empowerment and appreciation of nature, and the ending is so satisfying. The little section from the robin's pov seemed a little out of place. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Larabel | 8/29/2011

    " Great book my absolute favorite!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicky Thomasson | 7/22/2011

    " A lovely short classic written about a boy and girl who were spoilt, rude children who slowly became likeable and joyful with the help of another little boy and the discovery of the Secret Garden. It's a sweet story with the odd funny moment and a happy ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nolena | 7/1/2011

    " The garden of all gardeners dreams. This book and tragedy, fantasy, hope, and love mixed into the characters, plot, and truth in the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 5/22/2011

    " I love this book. Rereading it on my iPad to bring back the memories. :) "

    " Hay, nh? nhàng, tuy c?u trúc truy?n không logic l?m và hoi nhàn nh?t, nhung bù l?i không khí thiên nhiên, d?ng quê trong truy?n thì tuy?t v?i. Ð?c xong ch? u?c có d?a b?n nhu Dickon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 5/20/2011

    " I read this to Paul and Lila, and we loved it. I don't think I've ever read it before. I didn't realize how much it is about the power of positive thinking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz | 5/19/2011

    " I cannot count how many copies of this book I have bought. It is the perfect gift for a ten year old having a birthday. It brings back wonderful memories of a teacher reading to the class. Thank you Mrs. Jackson. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Synthia | 5/18/2011

    " I really like the book but if I were rating the musical (which is amazing!), I'd give it 5 stars. It's one of my top 3 musicals. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 fifi boo | 5/16/2011

    " One of those old books that when you start... you have to finish. What I recommend is: Watch the movie. Seriously. It might be different but it still gives the main point(s). Bleh... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Micah | 5/16/2011

    " It was as beautiful as I remember. A perfect read-aloud: we got to that magical point when no one, not even Mom who has a million things to do, wants to put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angie | 5/15/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beverly | 5/14/2011

    " All ills will be overcome by fresh air , hard work, and hot potatoes, with perhaps a bit of skipping. Orphaned? Unloved? Stop whining, get to work and you will be happy. We could use more of this attitude today! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Minna | 5/14/2011

    " Wish I had a secret garden. "
