My Antonia

So enjoyed this book both for its historical detail re. 19th century life in Nebraska but also for her very fluid style of writing.An excellent but quite short read.

All time favorite book

by pawkitt on Jul 24, 2008

I love this book, I just can't say it enough. Willa Cahter writes with such beauty. I felt like I was there when she would describe the parries and the people that lived there. She really has a way of telling a story, you can almost smell and hear what is going on in her books. This is a very good look at what it was like to settle on the parries, she dosen't sugar coat how hard it was to live there. One of the familes even lives in a sod house. What I hard life that must have been. This is a story of a young boy and his journey into a first love. He falls for Antonia, who is from Europe and very difrent from him and the people he has grown up with. I think he is so taken with her beacuse she is so diffrent. This is really a coming of age stroy told with beautiful pros. I will never forget how she describes the sun flowers I felt like I was there.

Must have been avant-garde when it was published. An unusual perspective on telling a story.

Good Solid Book

by Johnny2read on Jun 21, 2007

This is a book that really gives one the "feel" of the midwest of that specific time. The characters are well-drawn and varied, and the story line keeps the reader interested and not quite sure of what the ending will be. There is pain, joy, fun, and tragedy all woven into the story, which deals with life on those hard bleak plains of Nebraska many years ago, when life was simple, but hard. I gave it a three-star rating, because I feel it was not THE MOST exciting book I have ever read, nor did the prose "grab" me, as the prose of some authors has. It is, however, a wholesome read, and gives the reader real insight into the life and times of people who make up such a large part of the USA.
