summary ì eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Frances Hodgson Burnett

A Little Princess ✓ ‘I pretend I am a princess so that I can try and behave like one’ Without her beloved father and miles from home it is very hard for Sara Crewe to like her new life at boarding school Luckily Sara is always dreaming up wonderful things an. The movie based on this classic was the first one ever gifted to me and that when I was eight years old I've always had a thing for princess stories They’re usually so beautiful and this is no exceptionAlthough Sara is not really a princess But seeing the way she acts with others you may possibly think she is She is kind generous and very mature for her age When I first saw the movie I was shocked It was beautiful yet so sad and poignant and the little eight year old girl that I was did not understand everything To be honest the ending of the movie is uite abrupt and not very well explained while in the book it isThat said reading the book was way better than watching the movie as it usually is with classics and books in general Everything is clear and explained and you get to see even how Sara is one admirable girl and that she is someone people don’t forget after crossing her path The things she does are impressive and the fact that she thinks about others before herself even She’s the kind of person I wish to become one day Every sort of character is included in this story from the kindest to the coldest one Miss Minchin was uite something I rarely see such a woman that can be so cruel and cold heartened It’s very hard to like her but that doesn’t mean that her character was a weakness to the story since we need villains The world and people living in it aren’t perfect and she and some others are the proof of itThe story was wonderful and sad but it wasn’t what you may call a masterpiece It was a good one even though the plot has some repetitiveness That’s why I can’t bring myself to give it a five star rating Have I read this book when I was younger I probably would have loved it even but the seventeen year old that I am has read many other classics and must admit that this wasn’t comparable to Pride and Prejudice’s or Of Mice and Men’s plot uality for example even though I know those are very different stories Although the reason why I still liked this so much is because of all the beautiful themes that are included in the story They can be heart warming and at the same time heart breaking but definitely definitely beautiful The writing was very good and the atmosphere powerful I’ve also read by this author The Secret Garden which I enjoyed although not as much as this one Still I can tell that this author had such a talent in creating and writing stories I wish she was still alive for someone that has written such a story sure must be a kind and intelligent person By the way a reason why I don’t hurry to read every classic existing is because I want to still have some to read when I’ll be sixty years old for they are each one of them precious and there aren’t that many of them sadlyA Little Princess deserves in my opinion to be read by every person in this world boy or girl man or woman It is for everyone If you’re looking for another classic with similar themes you might want to check out Little Women as well which was wonderful wonderful wonderful summary ì eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Frances Hodgson Burnett

UNPOPULAR OPINION TIME Sorry folksMeet the charactersSara aka the Little Princess is described as and I'm only using words written explicitly in the book thin pale with striking green eyes too big for her face now I know where so many YA heroine's descriptions come from LOL clever good serious uick at her lessons proud brave generous hospitable unconuerable amiable good tempered having good manners She speaks fluent French though she'd never learned it She also speaks fluent Hindi Sara's father is described as young beautiful nice and cleverErmengarde aka Sara's best friend is explicitly described as fat stupid not clever having a slow little mind vulgar forgetful and forgettable Lottie is another one of Sara's friends a young child She's also fat and stupid but also ill tempered and capricious prone to throwing tantrumsBeckie aka the servant is another Sara's friend She's always described as poor poor poor Becky Also stupidLavinia aka the nemesis is described as horrid nasty priggish sneering and jealousMiss Minchin aka the headmistress is described as rude acid harsh domineering hard hearted mean vulgar Also she doesn't know French and doesn't try to learn it being the headmistress of a top school for young ladies in XIX England HmmmCook is described as vulgar and insolentBeggar girl seen on the street with a stupid look of suffering frightful little ravening savage poor little wild animalDo you see a pattern here I do1 Sara is a total Mary Sue so is her kin dad They are oh so clever even though Father never set aside any of his money for his daughter in case something happened didn't even pay her school forward for even a day Is that very clever2 Sara's friends are all fat and stupid and their only redeeming uality is that they worship her and trail her like puppies with unwavering loyalty and admiration 3 Sara's enemies are all dumb and rudeDo I have to say I didn't adore a book with such characters WHAT ABOUT THE PLOTSo Sara is awesome and rich She briefly becomes poor but stays awesome Her friends continue to worship her; her enemies expose their shallow awful true natures Then Sara becomes rich again remaining awesome as ever and punishing all who were mean to her Yup Sara never changes in her awesomeness she doesn't need a character arc Instead the whole world around her makes an arc BrilliantDon't even get me started that a child who has always been given all she wants has never heard the word no and had literally servants and slaves at her beck and call isn't spoiled but is instead wise and teaches her wisdom to the adults around her Sure because wisdom isn't something you learn through error and hardship You're just born with it if you're a true Princess inside WHAT MADE ME WANT TO GOUGE MY EYES OUTWas the complete and unwavering snobbism of Sara and the author It's not your fault that you are stupid says Sara to her BFF Ermengarde How nice and kind right I tried not to be a princess I tried but failed Who could blame you Sara I can give buns and bread to the populace says Sara exuberantly when she becomes rich again You couldn't look like a street beggar you haven't a street beggar face clothes to make her look somehow like a servant um so what is a beggar face and what do servants look like Not like humans just in different clothes Everyone keeps beating themselves up about how much Sara is working at the time she is poor but no one pays any mind to Becky who is of comparable age and actually works and also harder Sara deserves all the sympathy because she used to be rich you see The whole London filled with hungry children working way too hard is of no concern because they look like servants and have beggar faces Miss Minchin is portrayed as a monster because she made Sara work when she turned from crazy rich to a beggar Sara is in fact indebted to Minchin because not only did her father not pay forward he also didn't cover some hefty bills Minchin does a good thing not throwing Sara out and also adapting her to a change of station Because her station is indeed very much changed What should she have done Ignored reality to make Sara face it later even harshly Sure Minchin could have been softer to a child who's just lost her father But of course the author wouldn't have that So I absolutely HATED every page of this book As I hated Little Women and Black Beauty as a matter of fact Maybe catching up on children's classics I haven't read is a bad ideaPS 20072019 In fairness I've just finished a different book by Frances Hodgson Burnett The Secret Garden which is a children's classic as well And I loved it and gave it 5 stars So it seems too early to give up on the genre or even the author The Little Princess was just not for me
