Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! I read this book years ago and couldn't remember it, so I reread it and fell in love all over again! There's so many reasons that this is a classic! It really helped lift my spirits!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delightful Mini Book Review: I was disappointed when I first started the book as I heard so many fabulous things about this classic. I almost gave up after about 30 pages as it was hard to read about a child who was just utterly unlikeable (and yes I can see how she bacame that way) But than something happened about 45 pages in I started falling in love with her and wanted to know more. Such a charming, beautiful story and I now know why so many people list this as one of their favorite stories. Since I have to get 3 reviews done by New Years Eve (Tomorrow) this is going to be a quickie review. Fabulous character development and wonderful use of setting. You felt like you knew these characters and let me tell you the whole time I was reading, I also imagined that I was on the moors with the children. As a child this would be a truly marvelous read. As an adult my only negative comments would be that some might stop reading because at the beginning Mary is so unlikeable. Also the ending is a tad saccharine and predictable - but I really didn't mind that as I am a big softie. To put it simply it is a lovely sweet innocent tale of the importance of play, good fresh air and the power of imagination. 4.5 Dewey's I purchased this at the Indigo at the Eaton Centre for my BBC 100 Top Books Challenge (Yeah I totally failed I only finished 2 of the 5 I was going to review - but hey I moved across the country and became at stay at home mom)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for every age Not growing up in an English speaking country I was just recently introduced to The Secret Garden - it was a delight to read and I think it is one of the books you can read time and time again, even or especially during different stages of you life. A little shocking were the harsh realities of the beginning with deseases and deaths .... not something that has changed around the world, but something we tend to think about less and less in our Western society.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Childhood Favourite that has stood the test of time. I read this book as a little girl, as a tween, a teenager, and again in college. Now I have a daughter of my own, and I am so glad to share this with her. A classic, a must read. Do not be turned off by badly done tv/movies! Nothing is as good as the original! I also recommend her other books, Little Princess, and the lesser known Little Lord Faunteroy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical! This is THE book of my childhood. It was the first book I read where I became the character and her world and my world were one. I hope every kids gets to have this experience. I refuse to re-read it now and destroy the magic it once held in my heart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my all time favourites I've read this book at least twenty times. I had to buy a new copy because the one that was a gift to me as a child was falling apart, that's how good it is. This book is a must read for little girls and grown ups :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Secret Garden I remember reading this book as a child, and being transported to a garden in my imagination. I loved the characters, the story, the location, the romance (I thought) of being an orphan in England. To this day, as a gardener, the description of that magical secret garden entrances me and informs the goals that I have for my own garden. Of course, in Calgary, a rose-covered bower might be a little difficult, but the idea of the hidden garden, the sudden surprise of it, and the beauty of each of its seasons is what I carry with me from this book.
