Aku suka jalan ceritanya. Sederhana tapi banyak nilai positif yang bisa diambil. Ya benar, musuh terbesar dalam hidup itu justru ada dalam diri kita sendiri. Tidak jauh-jauh. Ada dalam fikiran kita sendiri, yaitu prasangka buruk. Benarlah apa kata orang bijak, apa yang kamu fikirkan kelak itulah yang akan terjadi. So.. Be positive!

This book deserves more reviews! The Secret Garden is a true children's classic. A beautiful read that deals with themes like loss and friendship.

The characters are memorable. My personable favorite is Dickon. His cheerful personality is the perfect contrast to the troubled and (quite frankly) miserable Mary and Colin.

The Secret Garden is a magical book that shouldn't be overlooked.

Mary, Dickon and Conil had been my childhood's favorite characters.
I'd watched the cartoon when I was 10 and read (the Arabic-version book of 400 pages) when I was eight.

It brings the joyful memories back and the excitement I read it with this time, was as much as that when I was a child.

Such a great story which really shows the power of positive and negative thinking.

Wesley read a shorter version for which I cannot find the ISBN.

This is the abridged version (so shorter than the original) But delightfully done with wonderful illustrations. An uplifting story of kindness that dwells in each of us, if we listen closely enough.
