The Secret Garden

The Secret Garden - Frances Hodgson Burnett Well, I'm a classic lover. I love books that have stood the test of time. The Secret Garden has been a Classic for more than 100 years.

I saw the 1993 film version of The Secret Garden years ago. I loved it. I loved the story, the characters and mostly, how a garden changes life for one very special girl.

So, of course, I ordered the book from the library. I wasn't overly pleased. Apart from the loving characters, I found how the book was written, much too simple for my liking. In my opinion, the film is a much deeper and heart-wrenching telling of the Garden that changes a girls life. One which, I think, the book itself does not portray.
