The Secret Garden By:Frances Hodgson Burnett The Secret Garden starts out in Misselwaite Manor. The main character is a girl named MAry Lennox who is a orphan that nobody likes because she is stubborn, very mean, and ugly. She has no respect for anyone.She lives with her Ayah that feeds and clothes her. Later on in the book when her Ayah dies of sickness. Mary gets put into a orphange. A little boy, Basil, that lives in the orphanage makes fun of her name and gives her the nickname Mistress Mary, Quite Contrary. Then she goes and lives with her uncle. I think this book is okay, but it kind of drags along. I give it three stars.

I bought this for my 8 year old but figured I'd better look at it first. The beginning is quite frightening; descriptions of death, illness, abandonment, loneliness, the wild moors, etc. I don't think I want my daughter to read it until she is older. I told her about the book and she actually asked me if it gave me nightmares! I recommend that an adult skim the book first to decide if your child can handle the story. Remember kids read more slowly so the scary beginning part will last longer.
This book is not for a sensitive child.

Well, I think this is a very good book, but the reading level should be changed.It should be for children of 5-9, or an English beginner. I was 10 when I read this book and I found it not very amusing. I am now 11 and I have belonged to another world. Just to note: Children over 10, in this era, whatever nationality, should begin reading books about political intrigues, the art of war,and philosophy, especially those living in a chaotic country like mine. For children below 9, I think, this is truly a wonderful book.

"The Secret Garden" is an entertaining and exciting read, although personally, I think you're better off reading Charlotte Brontë's "Jane Eyre". It looks like Mrs. Hodgson Burnett did. Very attentively.

I did't really like this book because it was boring and it wasn't that interesting at all. This book was also boring because it was from the older times and iin those types of books you don't really learn anything from them because you already might know them. You may or may not want to read this book but, thats your decsion to decide. I would recommend this book to girls in the range of third grade to fifth grade. I didn't like this book much at all.

I loved the book because it's a cute book and other people might like it. If you're older kid you might like it and the teachers and the parents might like it too. If you like reading about this parents and before died she was a spoiled kid. They always dress her and made her food and when her parents and when her parents died she went to live with her uncle. And her uncle's wife locked her in a room and a maid dressed her and fed her and then she went out to find some one to play with but a secret garden. I probably rate this book a 5 between 1and 10. The age group from 16-18 years olds might like this book.
