The Secret GardenThe Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was a sheer joy to read. It's essentially a children's story, with horrible little kids who come alive and become good through The Magic of being outside, but it...

I'm going through a period of severe depression right now. This book repeatedly made me smile, and I could almost feel a little of The Magic seeping into me. Highly recommended.

About tom

B.A. in Literature, Minor in Film Theory and Criticism, thus meaning all I’m trained is to write blog posts here. Neptune is my favorite planet–it vents methane into the solar system like my brother does. I think Chicken McNuggets look like Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Indiana. There are times when I’m medicated, which is why I wrote about McNuggets. Buy some today and tell me I’m wrong! Anyway, Beyond that: mammal, Floridian, biped.Good Night, and Good Luck. Besos, tom
