A very nice story. I found myself wondering what Francie was going to experience next. I also loved the nastolgia and experience of living life through the eyes of someone growing up in the early 1900s. I think you'll love the story.
I had to read this novel for a high school english class, and I am so happy for it. It is the ultimate story of empowerment, told by a young girl no less! Thinking about Francie's strength through troubled times has helped me find my own strength, and I highly recommend this work to anyone whom tough times have ever befallen.
This is it, the pinnacle, my absolute FAVORITE book in the whole wide world. I first read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn when I was in junior high, and was inspired to do so because some actor I had a crush on did an interview in, if you can believe it, Tiger Beat magazine where he said this was his favorite book. So some part of me thought, "hey, if I read the book, and then later I meet him, we'll have something to talk about!"
I couldn't even begin to tell you that actor's name today, but I remain so moved by this novel that I have read it at least once every year for the past 20 years. There's just nothing I don't love about it. I'm not ashamed to say that it is the standard by which I judge all other books in terms of personal enjoyment.
As a teenager, I found this book by chance at the local library, and instantly fell in love with this delightful work. Rich in detail, this book paints the picture of a Brooklyn family in the early 1900's, providing historical and cultural background, while still focusing upon those themes that remain timeless. The novel shows the complexity of relationship, and the joys and difficulties in life. There is both comedy and tragedy, romance and conflict, all juxtaposed to give a beautifully complex story. A true delight.
