My Side of the Mountain was my favorite book at 12 years old and I own several copies and will pass them down to my grandkids. I embarked on a journey that today has enabled me to create a Company based on my love of the outdoors and pass it down to my Son. This book was the accelerant and propeled me to pursue the outdoors, plants, animals, and living off the land. What a wonderful story and any pre-teen should read before he or she get TOO old.
I love the simplicity it was portrayed, yet the danger that can come if not prepared in the wild. The knowledge, that no one can take away, is invaluable to sustain yourself and possibly your loved ones in the event you are stranded or lost in the wilds.
The winter part of the story was my favorite, because he reflected on what he accomplished and how comfortable he was in his tree home.
I cried many times that I have read it when his mountain paradise was invaded by so many people.
Please let your children read it - you too adults if your not TOO OLD.
At first I was disappointed that the scriptures were not verbatim, but after listening, especially the Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles, I was very pleased with a new way to listen to the Word and Works of My Lord.
When Christ wept for Lazarus, and proceded to raise him from the dead. WOW!
The Whole WORD is my favorite.
When Christ called Lazarus from the grave because I knew how much HE loved!
Try it and you will like it.
Yes - make it more interesting.
No thank you. Ideas are too simplistic and characters unreal.
Yes - good job.
Not unless you want to be bored to death.
I bought this based on someone's review as the "BEST BOOK EVER" . What? This was almost boring and complicated to the point of just shutting it off and reading a book. I couldn't even stay along with the story because it changed so much and added so many characters I couldn't even tell you who they are now. I am sorry, but I cannot recommend a book that I can't even remember after listening to it. I would pass.
Wouldn't be in this series.
Simplify the plot and characters to the point where an average person can keep track of them.
Yes - read a book.
YES, by all means. This is THE best book ever on liiving in the LOVE of God. We do not know how to love, but our Lord does and when He loves us we can then pass it on. Wonderful book that I will cherish till Christ RETURNS.
The Shack and So You don't Want to Go to Church anymore. Based on the same theme of love relationship through what Christ did and NOT on what we do or don't do.
I loved it all.
Behold the Savior of the World
Please read or listen to this most important book and with a love for the truth - it will set you free.
This is the single BEST book I have ever read or listened to - besides the Holy Bible. I reveals the true face of Jesus - LOVE - not man's selfish love, but true unmerited GOD'S LOVE.
It is TOTALLY about JESUS and knowing HIM! Everything else will fall in line and TRUE FRUIT will emerge from the SPIRIT within YOU.
A great job - makes listening easy.
