Although Hans Brinker or the Silver Skates was published over 140 years ago, it continues to delight countless readers with its story of a virtuous family that inspires us all to have the courage to pursue our dreams.
What did you like best about Hans Brinker, or The Silver Skates? What did you like least?
The story was good in some parts; other parts were a snooze-fest. The author went into _long_ descriptions of the setting and of aspects of Dutch history. A little bit would have been great, but Dodge went overboard, in my opinion. There were too many detours from the storyline.
I wish I had chosen the McDonough narration. Marshall's voice seems well-suited for lullabies, making this audiobook even harder to listen to.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Maybe, because the movie would probably leave out a lot of the fluff that was so dry to listen to.
