The stories of Charles Dickens are very easy to love.
Though not as popular as his other opuses, Great Expectations enchants the reader through--as with many of Dickens' works--memorable characters, clever use of words, and a well-woven plot. Wordiness and the author's seeming resentment of women are my only problems with this novel. 4. =)
A friend borrowed my copy of Anne of the Island. I never got it back, I guess it means she liked it. I, on the other hand, don't. OK, much--not flat out dislike. Before reaching HS, I adored the book; but as i grew up, I found this installment of the Anne Series dull and--I can't remember whether it lacks romance or has too much of it--weak as a romance novel. Too bad Anne of the Island lacks the sparkle L.M. Montgomery captured with Anne of Green Gables. *shrugs* I as a true Anne & Gilbert fan, HOWEVER, CANNOT discount the closure this book has given me. Maybe just for that I could give it a 5, haha. Well, no, I give it a 3. =)
Delightful: Innocent, honest and fanciful Anne Shirley will charm you as she experiences life with the Cuthberts and at her new home in Green Gables. L.M. Montgomery perfectly protrays the simplicity and many wonders of childhood. Read it! A four. Because nothing is perfect. =)
