I surprised myself by enjoying this book. I thought it was going to be a book about all the wonderful things Pocahontas and the Native Americans did, and all the awful things the Europeans did to them. In fact, it was a well-documented book that hon ...more

I enjoyed this book. One of my favorite themes is foreign countries, so I was predisposed to like it. It takes place in India. In addition, I had just been to India 3 months ago. Lastly, it was written by a friend of mine.

Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
"3.5 Historical fiction is definitely this author's strength as she proved in Between Shades of Gray, which I loved and once again with this, her new upcoming novel. Although she uses young adults to tell the story of the sinking in 1945 of the Wil..." Read more of this review »

Although I normally love Danielle Steele and consider reading her books a "guilty pleasure", I couldn't finish this one. The author repeated simple comments over and over. Each character was too stereotypical. It wasn't fun to read.

This is a charming book! Just as Walt Disney saw the movie "Bambie" and said, "It's magic", so I say about "Charlotte's Web", it's magic!

The people and animals in this book have simple, heart-felt emotions that are easy-to-understand by both childre

I couldn't get interested in this book. After reading about 1/4 of it, I quit. It is about the survival of an indigenous tribe in Peru in our times. The beliefs of the tribe are discussed. I don't remember why I was so bored, but it just didn't inter ...more
