Hmmm.. Well, I have to say this is not a book I would've picked up and read myself, (being I read it for my 11th grade English class) but it was still an interesting book to read none the less!
It took me ruffly 5 days to complete, reading at least 5 hours each a day.
It was a hard read. Very long, and tedious to continue at sometimes.
It was a nice story. Almost like you got transported back in time and were there yourself.
A nice meaning too.
That life goes on.... And that the 'Mecivies' continued no matter what tragedy's had appeared.
Even when made poor, to rich... Family, life, and love is still what mattered with all the glitz and glammer.
At the end that's what Sol realized!
That he wished he had not ruined the land park his pa and grandpa had tried to preserve.
But... He realized it too late and went along with his mistakes learning and growing richer and richer, but not caring. Wishing only for love.
So, he died just like that. Wishing for the family he once had.
Overall, it was a okay/nice read.
Kind of takes you back in time.
A great historical novel about Florida's history if your looking for one!
Also a great family read.
Overall rating-: 7/10.
Thank you. (:
It was a fun, easy read. Also pretty entertaining!
