This book is amazing. It’s incredibly pure and beautiful. I don’t know that it’s a great literary work on par with Ulysses, but it’s so easy to love that I like it better. I first read it when I was 7 or 8 I think, and it enchanted me.
There are a number of books I consider responsible for creating a love of reading and language that has more than served me well; this is one of them. It’s one book I will always have with me, wherever I live. There aren’t enough wonderful things I can think to say about it!
I picked up this book, becuase it was thicker than all the others. I fell in love with the story, the magic of discovering the garden, the charity of renewing it. I know so few people who have read this. Which makes me sad. Everyone should read this book. It reminds us about what is wonderful in life.
Amazing book. At the moment, I am on a “Rushdie and the Sea of Stories” trip to find my voice. And I am slowly slipping into it by rediscovering the books that made me fall in love with reading in the first place. This was one of them.
I read this book while listening to the audio tape with an English voice doing the parts. It was lovely, and brought me right to Yorkshire with the mists and the robin. When I went to York, I was happy to feel that I had a part of the Secret Garden with me.
