LOVED it. Sour Mary, spoiled Colin, chatty Martha, angelic Dickon, curmudgeon Ben, wise Mother, the whole thing. Best part for me was where Mary starts shouting to Colin over his hypochondria induced tantrum. Lord, was the girl vicious! It was funny in an overboard, freeing way. A very sweet cla...

It's amazing how seriously flawed so-called children's classics can be. The Secret Garden, which seems fairly universally beloved in Britain, sees the spoiled and listless Mary Lennox orphaned in India by cholera, and brought to her uncle's rambling Victorian manor on the Yorkshire moors. She hear...

I remember I attempted to get into this book in early 2014 and failed miserably after about 20 pages—I don’t know what it was, but I guess it just wasn’t the right time for this book. Eventually the right time did come and somehow, being under a lot of pressure at work and life in general, I uncon...

I finally read The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I want to start with the film review for this one because it's truly in my top 5 favorite films of all time. The movie came out in 1993 and is the reason why I have wanted to ramble across the Yorkshire moors (which I finally did this summ...

I haven't read this since I read it aloud to my daughters as a bedtime story. Yeah, I used to be an awesome mom. They heard the entire Little House series, this book and The Little Princess before I stopped reading at night. Anyway, I love all the talk about gardens and the magic of life waking i...

Even though there were some annoying background sounds every once in awhile, it was a pleasant experience in general.I have no idea why I haven...

I received a free ecopy of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett written in 1911, & published by Girlebooks. I gave it five stars even with the dated language. Describing the orphaned child, Mary Lennox: "no one had taken any notice of her. She did not know that this was because she was a d...

I cannot possibly say anything glowing and wonderful about this book that hasn't already been said a thousand times before so I'll just say I loved it. It's beautiful. And what does it say about me and the jaded age I've reached when I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop in this story: a fig...

What a remarkably charming story. I loved how Mary grew in this story, but still managed to stay contrary. I absolutely loved her relationship with Dicken and Colin (please excuse any misspellings of the names. I listened to an audio version). I loved how alike Mary and Colin were and because of the...
