    3. The first time I read this book, it was actually read to me by my parents, I was about six years old and already had a fascination with books This is a story that has stayed with me since On the first read I thought Mary Lennox was a selfish, spoiled little girl who had no regard for other, I remember deciding this after reading how she treated others in India but by the end of the book along with the robin, Ben Weatherstaff , the Sowerby family and even Colin who I also disliked at first became [...]

    6. My first encounter with this storyline was when in first grade I was shown this movie in class I absolutely loved it It captured my imagination and amazed me to the core At the age of 16 I read the book and the book as expected was detailed However, both the book and the movie are great in their own way If you haven t read it, read it and it s an absolute must to watch the movie but do avoid the newer movie cause it is not great NOTE It s a big book and not all children feel confident to take i [...]

    8. This is one of my favorite books I have read it twice now it is about mary lennox a very sooby little girl who lives in india with her parents that dont pay any attention to her when colera hits hard and she is sent to live with her uncle.Where she stumble upon a garden where life is great I would defefinitly sugget read this to a child I enjoyed this book because it gives you the ability to think into the unknown maybe there is a garden with magic powers

    9. a lovely book, that my Gran used to read to me, so brings back many happy memories, I love books with a secret to find out mary was orphaned and came to the Yorkshire Moors, bleak and windy, so far removed from India s hot climate she lives in this vast cold house and discovers many secrets.

    10. The secret garden was a little boring at first but I give it 5 stars in the end because it got really interesting throughout the book It had a happy ending and I love books that have happy endings or have mysterious endings I recommend this book to anyone who would love a sort about friendship and people who wants to find out how a garden can bring people together.

    11. I read this book as a child and as an adult I still recall the magical thinking and feeling it left me with I recall the way the book was so lovely in it s writing It truly captured my imagination and allowed me to lose myself completely in the novel I have spent many hours looking in charity shops and old books shops for a copy I want a vintage one for my collection

    12. This book had been on my bookshelf since I was a child and I have only just read it I found it very enjoyable and even though it s never too late to read a book, I know that I would have enjoyed The Secret Garden just as much if I had read it when I was younger.

    13. Much better than the movie, In the book Mary appreciates a lot of the people around her in the movie that emotion is not seen as much There is a passion in this book to believe in something and it will happen.

    14. This story is and always will be a classic With magic and mystery it was a calming story with moments that will send you crying I love this story, it is one that will never get old.

    15. This book would be one that I am absoulutly obsessed with Ive seen the movie along with it, and it really captured what the book was about.

    16. Ok it s only an adaptation of the actual book but it s a clear summary for children and was one of my favourite books as a child Now to read the original.

    17. A magical and adventurous book from my childhood I look forward to sharing this book with my daughter and my future grandchildren.

    18. I love this book it took me on a new adventure my eyes were hurting so bad but i didnt put the book down I reccomend you read this amazing book and i started it on the 20th

    19. I never read this book personally, my mom always read it to me I think its a really good book and is a good one for mother and daughters to read together.
