I loved the author's descriptive writing. She had me in tears more than once and agonizing over the characters dilemmas.
She had a wonderfully engaging voice and reading style.
I first read this book when I was a teenager. Read it over and over. Was thrilled to see it was on audio. The narrator is excellent with all the voices of the characters. A real-to-life historical novel. Now I listen to it over and over, enjoy the narration as much as the story.
I've loved this book since I was a kid and have read it approximately a zillion times. Whenever I'm stressed, I reread it. I named my son after Nathaniel Eaton. You get the idea. Unfortunately, I had a lot of trouble getting over my disappointment with the performance. The narrator was lackluster in general and just plain awful for the male characters.
This is a wonderful book for young adults to read. It has all the required elements for a coming-of-age novel. You experience the angst, frustration, joy and growing pains with a little touch of history and values too. Unfortunately, I found it to be somewhat melodramatic, but if that's what you like, go for it!
As a mother, a 14yr old boy and a 12yr old boy we all truly enjoyed this book and the narrator. Excellent!
This book was very fun and interesting! I would have NEVER read this because of how it looked and the title but I read this because of school and I loved it! This book is one of my favorite books ever! If you ever see this book in the store get it and read it! The beginning is not the best but is gets really really great! Read this book! I strongly suggest it! to any one even if you are old and if you are young it is a great fun adventuress book!
the story is simple, but engaging
