Forced to leave her sunny Caribbean home for the bleak Connecticut Colony, Kit Tyler is filled with trepidation. As they sail up the river to Kit's new home, the teasing and moodiness of a young sailor named Nat doesn't help. Still, her unsinkable spirit soon bobs back up. What this spirited teenager doesn't count on, however, is how her aunt and uncle's stern Puritan community will view her. In the colonies of 1687, a girl who swims, wears silk and satin gowns, and talks back to her elders is not only headstrong, she is in grave danger of being regarded as a witch. When Kit befriends an old Quaker woman known as the Witch of Blackbird Pond, it is more than the ascetics can take: soon Kit is defending her life. Who can she count on as she confronts these angry and suspicious townspeople?

A thoroughly exciting and rewarding Newbery Medal winner and ALA Notable Children's Book, Elizabeth George Speare's The Witch of Blackbird Pond brings this frightening period of witch hysteria to life. Readers will wonder at the power of the mob mentality, and the need for communities in desperate times--even current times--to find a scapegoat. --Emilie Coulter -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Von Ein Kunde am 7. Januar 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
Overall, I was disappointed with this book. I don't mind long, slow, drawn-out plots as long as they are detailed and developed. By the middle of this book, I wondered when it would get started. By the last quarter of the book, I was still wondering when it would get started. Usually by the end of a book, I feel that I "know" the characters. This book left me feeling empty. The characters Judith and Mercy were poorly developed. I was almost finished with the book before I realized the differences and similarities between Judith and Mercy... I spent most of the book wondering who was who! As for the witch-hunt -- that was also disappointing. Kit and Hannah were not accused outright of being witches until the last three chapters. Only one chapter in the whole book is entirely devoted to the witch-hunt. Finally, at the end of the book, I was left feeling completely empty with Nat and Kit's relationship. It just came out of no where. I had a feeling they would get together in the beginning and I wanted to see them together, but I was really disappointed with the events that led up to it. What can I say positive about this book? It is a good historical fiction of Puritan times and lifestyle. If you are interested in the Puritan ways, you will probably like this book. If you are interested in the witch-hunt or if you want to read a well-developed good book, I would pass on this one.

Von Ein Kunde am 25. November 1998
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A witch? Someone thinks you are a witch? When Kit leaves Barbados on the lovely Dolphin ship to live in America with her Uncle, she is unprepared for what she encounters. What a surprise when she discovers that being able to read, swim, wear fancy clothes, as well as befriending a kind old woman is odd behavior for this town. In The Witch of Blackbird Pond, Elizabeth George Spears sends you on a reading adventure. The story includes a number of surprising and suspenseful events including a frightening witch hunt and a big outcry among some angry villagers against their government. Some parts of the story are a little boring, but the elaborate language and unpredictable moments bring you right back into the book. The climax of this book is the best part. It's unbeleivable and exciting. The main character, Kit, is very interesting. You will feel like you know her only after reading a few pages. Fiesty, wise, and stubborn are some of Kit's personality traits. You will also become very familiar with many of the other characters including Kit's two cousins, her Aunt and Uncle, Nat a seaman, and John and William two very interesting men, plus many more! This book has many hidden lessons in it. It teaches you about friendship, trust, bravery, genorosity, and happiness, It will fill you with sorrow and joy, and is a very adventurous story loved by many!

Von Ein Kunde am 28. Januar 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
Although I am well past the age this book is intended for, I must say this is one of the finest pieces of historical fiction I have ever read.
One of the favorite books of my youth was "Calico Captive" which was also written by Elizabeth George Speare. Recently, in a fit of nostalgia, I purchased "Calico Captive" and, on a whim, I also grabbed "The Witch of Blackbird Pond" simply because it was by the same author and also set in colonial times. I felt I could use some light, escapist reading material in order to take a break from my usual heavy fare of military history books.
Anyway I started to read "The Witch of Blackbird Pond" at around 9:30 in the evening. At 2AM, I finished it. I couldn't put it down! After the first few chapters the book becomes a real page turner. I had to find out what would happen next. Would Kit ever adapt to the austere life of the Puritans? How would the situation with Prudence Cruff pan out? Would Kit marry William? Would John marry the girl he truly loved? Would Uncle Matthew ever soften? And, of course, what would happen if the Puritans found out about Kit's friendship with a suspected witch? I was just blown away by this book- one of the enjoyable reading experiences I have had in a long time.

This is one of my all-time favorite books, next to 'Jacob Have I Loved'. It is INCREDIBLY engrossing. The Puritan setting is done in such a believable manner that you are sucked into the story. You can easily imagine yourself to be right there with Kit and enjoy every minute of it. Kit, as a heroine is very likeable and authentic. She begins the story with pride that borders on conceit and ends with a mature and well-tempered strength. Throughout the novel I got a kick from her defiant attitude and spirit. The relationships between all the characters in the story are the heart of the novel. While the mystery and action elements of 'The Witch of Blackbird Pond' are well-done and could stand alone (the plot moves along very nicely), it's really the relationship aspects of the novel that appealed to me. I also have to mention that there are moments of fine humor that make me laugh out loud. I can't say that about many other books I've read. I will probably re-read this book many, many times. I think it's unfortunate that students are forced to read this book before they are ready to enjoy it. If you had to read this book for school and found it hard to get through, I would strongly recommend that you give it another shot when you're older. You won't regret it.
