Genre: Fiction; Classics
Rate: 5/5 | Goodreads
I remember watching “Bridge to Terabithia“, how gripping, beautiful, and soul-wrenching it was. Figured, I might as well read the book by Katherine Paterson. Well, it’s just as wonderful and heartbreaking.
About the Book: Jess’s only escape was painting, drawing. Something his father didn’t approve of much, so the boy didn’t get to do it as much as he wanted, nor really flourish his fantasy until Leslie moved into the house next door. Strange girl of seemingly eccentric parents broke the mundane routine, hardships at home, nightmares at school. In the woods across the river they made themselves a safe haven, a fantastical Kingdom of their own, Terabithia. Which, as their rulers, they had to defend from monsters, and solve the problems as they arose.
My Opinion: It’s one of the most beautiful books I’ve read, with gorgeous movie to go along. Vivid, lively characters, magical story.
A great book I can greatly recommend. 5 out of 5 from me.
