by Frances Hodgson Burnett
A book set for all ages. The book’s setting was really extravagant and the story dwells within the lives of those queer children of luxury . It tells us that sometimes being a child of a very rich man with a mansion is miserable, boring and lifeless. Though every single thing is served at your feet, you can’t still be happy enough. Something would still be missing realizing that life is never perfect at all.
Colin as one of the protagonist portrays this meaningless life at a young age. But how he recovered from his suppressing life before makes you read through the pages.
On the other hand, I loved how Mary discovered the secret garden and her friendly treatment to Dickon, Martha and her family, the Gardener, Colin, even the robin (the bird). She successfully changed herself from “contrasting Mary”- which she refers as her bad attitude, to a happy, healthy and agreeable child loved by everyone.
