    Story
    (36)

    After the death of his parents, Jim is sent to live with his grandparents on the Nebraska plains. By chance, on the same train is a bright-eyed girl, Antonia, who will become his neighbor and lifelong friend. Her family has emigrated from Bohemia to start a new life of farming, but they soon lose their money and must work hard just to survive. Through it all, Antonia retains her natural pride and free spirit.

    Allison says: "An amazingly vivid novel"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This book is like Little House on the Prairie for grown-ups.


    What aspect of Patrick Lawlor???s performance would you have changed?

    The reading is OK. The reader tries to use different accents for some of the different characters, but some of them are just plain annoying, and none of them really draw you into the story as is the case with some other narrators.


    Could you see My Antonia being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Read this with my daughter who was reading for a school assignment. If not for that, I probably woudn't have finished the book. On the plus side, it is pretty short.
