My favorite LMM novel so far

I have read the entire Anne series, The Blue Castle, Kilmeny of the Orchard, The Story Girl and The Golden Road...but Pat of Silver Bush touched me in a way that none of the other novels did. The book follows Patricia Gardiner from age seven to age eighteen, but does not seem rushed. There is no complicated plot involving secret identities and there is very little melodrama, in my opinion. Pat of Silver Bush is "character-driven" and realistic. It celebrates the beauty of home and of everyday life. Over and over, the descriptions made me shiver and sigh. The episode in which Pat gets lost after running away from her aunt's house and meets Jingle on the road is wonderful. I sympathized with Pat's fear and with her relief and, finally, with the overwhelming joy she feels when she arrives home and sees the windows all lit up. When Pat stayed out after dark with her friends (or alone) I could almost feel the way the evening air would brush against my cheeks and shoulders if I were out on a summer night on Prince Edward Island. Pat's friendship with Bets is sweet and realistic. It made me think, "Every kid should have at least one really close friend like that." Pat's infatuations with different boys when she is a teenager are also realistic...they reminded me of some of my own experiences, even though I was a teenager in the 1990's! If you are a sensitive person who delights in little pleasures (and if you like a book that will make you cry), read Pat of Silver Bush. The only thing about the book that got annoying at times was Judy's dialect. I think readers can imagine an Irish brogue without constantly seeing it spelled out phonetically. I won't dock my rating any stars for it, though. It can be distracting, but it doesn't really take away from the novel.

A sweet story!

L.M.Montgomery, as usual, has created a true classic! I am seventeen, and I am still entrigued by it! This story about Pat, the little girl who loves her beautiful home more than anything; Jingle, the little boy whom Pat befriends and for whom she makes life bearable, and many other charming characters (I especially liked Judy!) is one which anyone could fall in love with. L.M.Montgomery's classic style of warmth and innocence is in full force here. You can also always count on her giving marvelous descriptions. I love that she does that! You can actually see what she is describing! A great book! I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good story that is written well, and which doesn't have a lot of smut! What are you still reading this for? Go get it! Just kidding.

A Must Read for Anyone Cherish Memory of Live.

Miss Lucy Maud Montgomery is one of my favorite authors. I love all her works. Among them the 'Pat' stories (including 'Pat of Silverbush' and 'Mistress Pat') are my favorites.I grew up in a family with beloved parents and three sisters. As time pass by, I am the only child in my family who still remain single and live in 'our home', which is a cozy house with lots of love and memory. Perhaps that is the reason why I was so touched by Pat's story. The joy and loneliness of Pat are so vivid and real to me.I read with laughers and tears with Pat's story and I believe your will, too. This book is a must-read to anyone who cherish family and memory of live!

My Favorite Book!

Lucy maud Montgomery is my favorite author and Pat of Silverbush (+ the sequel'Mistress Pat') are my favorites.I loved Pat so much and all the things that happen to her during this two volumes really touched me,thanks to the magic Lucy Maud produced.I laughed and I cried very hard.The story was so vivid to me that I still think of Pat sometimes as though she was a real person.This heartwarming story is the best to take you to a different world.You will read it in no time,and while you do all you can think of is Pat.

A story that is a joy to read beginning to end.

Lucy Maud Montgomery once said that of all her characters, the one that she was the most like was Pat Gardiner. Pat is certainly one of my favorite of her characters. She is a girl who loves her home and family, and the only thing she desires is that change should never come to Silver Bush. But changes come, and Pat deals with them, helped by her friends Jingle and Bets, and by the family servant, Judy Plum. Judy is one of Montgomery's most entertaining characters. She knows a story about everyone, and the stories she tells will have you shaking with laughter. This book will produce both tears and laughter, and is one that you will read again and again until the covers are old and worn.
