Avid Audio book JUNKY :) Always have one going in my car and 4 or 5 in my library .While having 25 on my wish list ....
It's a must read , for any age . It truly depicts the hardships of living in New York in the early 1900's. The smoothness of the story the interesting characters was outstanding . I could not put the book down .Highly recommend this classic. Kate Burtons performance is second to none .
one of the best books I have read. I would have never read this on my own. it was a book club pick. several of the members of my book club had read in high school. but I had not. I am so glad I read this book and will recommend it to other.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is a must for anyone who loves history! So much to learn about life from this book. I did listen to it on the fastest setting. I suggested it for book club so I had to finish.
I loved this book! It is well read and the characters make you fall in love with them. It takes us back to the days before social security, and the assistance you received on any level, was from family. After reading this, every time I sit down to a meal, or go to work, I am grateful for all I have.
Kate Burton's voice is enchanting, and matches the story beautifully.
All of the characters are amazing.
I have no idea. It's a perfect title.
Molly Manning's book, When Books Went to War, mentioned this book several times so I had to find out what was so great that soldiers clamored to read it while spending time in a cold, wet foxhole. What a surprise. This book is well written, the characters are rich and full, sometimes its funny and sometimes way past sad but it always left me wondering what would happen next. The story is a lot like Angela's Ashes but I think its better
As Francie found solace in her tree, I found joy in the music of the neighborhood jukebox. I listened from across the street, on my fire escape to the music of the time, and it transported me from the poverty of a crowded railroad apartment to a place where my heart could sing!
