I read Pollyanna just two weeks ago. It was the first time. I needed a relaxing book, I needed I guess a children's book maybe.I found it adorable, and it is very powerful because there is again an element that I love so badly to meet in the books I prefer: the capacity of a community to changing th...

A classic from childhood. Actually, I remember the movie better, with Haley Mills as Pollyanna (I think). The classic plot of poor little wonderful girl who becomes an orphan, moves in with an unsympathetic relation (aunt), and gradually turns the cold hard woman into a loving person. All the while,...

Pollyanna is a delightful bit of escapism. Sure she's the most optimistic character in literature and the plot is ever bit saccharine, but sometimes that's exactly what you need.

I read this as somewhere along the lines as a 9 year old. That was probably a mistake. Pollyanna was the most unrealistic character ever. She was such a perfect little girl who *was perfect* and accepted the way she was treated like nothing else. I really disliked her. But I should probably re read ...

*3.5 Stars**The Gush* I grew up with this book. It's been awhile since I read it, so this will be brief.The writing is solid, the pacing is good; because of the type of book it is there will be some readers who find it boring at times, though I didn't. The characters are very real, if you have lived...
