Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have read the entire Anne series, The Blue Castle, Kilmeny of the Orchard, The Story Girl and The Golden Road...but Pat of Silver Bush touched me in a way that none of the other novels did. The book follows Patricia Gardiner from age seven to age eighteen, but does not seem rushed. There is no complicated plot involving secret identities and there is very little melodrama, in my opinion. Pat of Silver Bush is "character-driven" and realistic. It celebrates the beauty of home and of everyday life. Over and over, the descriptions made me shiver and sigh. The episode in which Pat gets lost after running away from her aunt's house and meets Jingle on the road is wonderful. I sympathized with Pat's fear and with her relief and, finally, with the overwhelming joy she feels when she arrives home and sees the windows all lit up. When Pat stayed out after dark with her friends (or alone) I could almost feel the way the evening air would brush against my cheeks and shoulders if I were...
Miss Lucy Maud Montgomery is one of my favorite authors. I love all her works. Among them the 'Pat' stories (including 'Pat of Silverbush' and 'Mistress Pat') are my favorites. I grew up in a family with beloved parents and three sisters. As time pass by, I am the only child in my family who still remain single and live in 'our home', which is a cozy house with lots of love and memory. Perhaps that is the reason why I was so touched by Pat's story. The joy and loneliness of Pat are so vivid and real to me. I read with laughers and tears with Pat's story and I believe your will, too. This book is a must-read to anyone who cherish family and memory of live!
L.M.Montgomery, as usual, has created a true classic! I am seventeen, and I am still entrigued by it! This story about Pat, the little girl who loves her beautiful home more than anything; Jingle, the little boy whom Pat befriends and for whom she makes life bearable, and many other charming characters (I especially liked Judy!) is one which anyone could fall in love with. L.M.Montgomery's classic style of warmth and innocence is in full force here. You can also always count on her giving marvelous descriptions. I love that she does that! You can actually see what she is describing! A great book! I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good story that is written well, and which doesn't have a lot of smut! What are you still reading this for? Go get it! Just kidding.
