Still beautiful after all these years

I first read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn when I was a young girl like the story’s heroine, Francie, and it was one of my favorite books. Yesterday I turned 60, and it’s still wonderful. A page turner, a joy to read, fascinating for the detail of what it was like to live in Brooklyn in 1916 and thereabouts. Betty Smith is so honest with sordid details, the book is fascinating because it doesn’t lie. Yet it’s written with a warm optimism so it doesn’t depress you. A+.

Slow start but worth it

The beginning of the story was hard to read , boring and seemed as if it was going nowhere. About 20 pages in I had to google reviews and a lot of people felt the same way I did. Stuck on the F train I decided to give it a second chance . At the end I appreciated her details of how New York was in the 1900’s and grew to love the characters.

Don’t give up and keep reading to the end !

Finally Found Favorite!

I never have an answer when asked, “What is your favorite book?” So many great books. I can’t find the words to articulate why but I can honestly answer next time, “My favorite book is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.”
