5.0 von 5 Sternen Growing Up In Secret
My copy of *The Secret Garden* has lost its cover; all the pages are curled from being turned so many times; the text has faded to brown, and there's a big mark where I must have spilled something on it in my desire to keep reading through a meal.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Slightly monotonous reading
The Secret Garden tells the story of Mary, an orphan sent from India to live with her misanthropic uncle in the Yorkshire moors. Under the influence of the 'magic' of Yorkshire's nature and its inhabitants, Mary changes from an introverted, recalcitrant brat into an open-minded and caring person. This change is facilitated by the discovery of secrets around her uncle's...

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret Garden (Gebundene Ausgabe)
My copy of *The Secret Garden* has lost its cover; all the pages are curled from being turned so many times; the text has faded to brown, and there's a big mark where I must have spilled something on it in my desire to keep reading through a meal.
Mary Lennox, spoiled beyond belief, sallow and plain, comes from India to Misselthwaite Manor in order to live with her uncle. The manor, however, is full of mystery, and the goal of everyone seems to be to keep Mistress Mary out of the way and, preferably, out of the house. In the course of time, she discovers that the mystery of the house is her cousin, Colin, a child almost as badly spoiled as she is, and whom everyone has written off as likely to die. Together, with a new friend Dickon, Mary and Colin begin to take an interest in life. They begin to revive a secret walled up garden.
And, over time, gardening makes them well in mind and spirit (one might note this down). The seasons change; the flowers bloom; the robin builds a nest. The children are growing up as the garden is transformed. Colin becomes almost sturdy; Mary is neither sallow nor plain. The spoiled, peremptory rude little monsters are gone.
I almost miss their dreadful ways at the end. There's a wonderful scene early on in which Colin throws a tantrum, and Mary threatens to throw an even worse one unless he stops. She claims to be able to scream louder than he can, and I believe her.
Don't miss this book. It takes its own time to unfold, but some things are best savored slowly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Childhood Classic. . ., 27. Mai 2000

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret Garden (Gebundene Ausgabe)
The Secret Garden, written by Frances Hodgson Burnett, is a charming book about a girl named Mary Lennox. She is a spoiled and sickly child who lives in India. When her parents die because of a cholera epidemic, she moves to Misselthwaite Manor to live with her rich uncle in England. Things are a definite change for her. Slowly she becomes stronger and starts to take an interest in the outdoors. She meets all sorts of people like Martha, Dickon, and Colin. Martha is a maid on the grounds who has taken a fancy to Mary, and Dickon is her brother. Dickon is quite an unusual fellow. He possesses the ability to talk to animals and is able to grow anything with a little bit of soil. Colin, who you will meet later in the story, is a child who has basically given up the will to live, believing he is doomed to be a hunchback like his father. Strong-willed Mary reprimands him and takes matters into her own hands. Mary has all kinds of adventures with strange sounds at night, funny accents, and a locked garden. The Secret Garden is a wonderful book about friendship, determination, and perseverence. I would recommend this book to someone of any age. It is beautifully written and full of life.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret Garden (Gebundene Ausgabe)
The Secret Garden
Frances Hodgson Burnett's book, The Secret Garden, is one of the greatest and most fun books I've ever read about how childrens' attitudes can change.
The Secret Garden is a fabulous book that has an exciting and different feeling than other books. The characters involved are all very different and unique in their own way. Even though this story took place in the early 1900's, the characters can still be related to in this day and age. Their actions and attitudes resemble the same type of people around today such as the little girl Mary's stubbornness, the country boy Dickin's whole-heartiness, the house-keeper Martha's warmth, or the uncle's coldness.
The story starts in the far off country of India, but it finishes in London. This book is great to read because of its ability to keep the story moving along in a sense that makes you want to keep on reading. The plot is set up so that you have to read till the end to find out what really happens, and the story progresses along up until the final page.
Young as well as old people may find this book a great choice. The Secret Garden is pretty much for children above elementary school because of its text. This book has several words and phrases that may be difficult for younger children to comprehend. The length may also turn off younger readers, but if they were to start this book they would most likely want to finish it. Older people may enjoy this book because of the exciting plot and it's uniqueness.
This book displayed the characters realistically, and the ending was great. Mary transformed from being the girl nobody wanted to be around, to a sweet, fun little lady. It showed how things can change, if you let them. Overall, it was very enjoyable, and I have read it many times over again.

Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret Garden (Puffin Classics) (Taschenbuch)
I have a real problem with the assumption that if a book has a child protagonist it is classified as Childrens Literature. This text is not just a childrens book. It operates on many levels which can be enjoyed by all ages. That it is still being read indicates just how timeless and universal the author's message is. The story is a good one. Orphaned Mary sent from India to an unknown uncle in Yorkshire discovers herself and her place in the world. Along the path of self discovery Mary joins up with her invalid cousin, Colin and Dickon, a local lad. One by one they all make it into the garden and it comes to mean different things for all of them. For Mary it is a place all of her own, To Colin it means a chance to perhaps walk for the first time while Dickon who has already made his peace with nature must help nurture the growth of his new friends. The garden is used as a metaphor. As the garden changes with the Seasons, so do the characters until finally they are blooming in the Summer Sun. Frances Hodgeson Burnett is telling us that we all have a secret garden within our heart. We must find the key, open the door and unlock what is inside so that we can grow physically, spiritually and mentally. I recommend this book to everyone because I think there is something of all of us in it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A close companion for more than forty years, 12. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret Garden (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I first heard this book read in my first grade class in Colorado in 1956. Our teacher read to us each afternoon after lunch and recess. I looked so forward to hearing the story each afternoon. My parents had just divorced and the story of Mary just took me away from the whole ordeal. I read it for myself in the seventh grade and it was like finding an old friend. After marrying and having a daughter I bought her a little paperback copy and then later comes my grandchildren and I found it on video. You see how it has been a lifetime companion. I wish our libraries had more of this type classic and I wish I could find a hardcover blue back like the one I read in seventh grade for my home library. The movie was very close to what I had imagined years before in that first grade class.

I first read The Secret Garden many years ago. I loved it then and I still love it now. I believe it is one of the best children's books ever written. It combines fantasy, mystery, and history with a wonderfull plot. No matter how old I am when I read it, or how long it has been since I last read it, I enjoy it imensely. I strongly recomend buying it or borrowing it from your library. The Secret Garden certainly is a true classic.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wunderbar!, 16. Oktober 2011
The Secret Garden
Diesem Buch wohnt ein Zauber inne. Warmherzig erzählt F.H.B., wie sich die Kinder Mary und Colin von Tag zu Tag mehr aus den Verkrustungen und Narben ihrer Kindheit und der wenig liebevollen Erziehung durch die Entdeckung, Erforschung und Pflege des geheimen Gartens lösen. Hilfe erhalten sie durch die Zuwendung weiser und freundlicher Mitmenschen, aber auch ihre schrulligen, spröden Weggefährten helfen ihnen, ihr Ziel zu erreichen. Stets werden sie von vielen klugen Tieren begleitet. Eingebettet ist die Geschichte in die mystische Landschaft von Yorkshire. Durch die wunderschönen Zeichnungen von Inga Moore wird das Buch zu einem Schmaus für Augen, Herz und Seele.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A real touching book!, 22. April 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Secret Garden (Taschenbuch)
Read the book within one day. Couldn't put it down. Made me realised once again how important a child's childhood is. How a child turns out really depends on his/her environment. Gave me so much hope and joy just reading about the friendship formed among the three children.
