4.0 de 5 estrelas It was great fun to read about the adventures these kids came ... 8 de dezembro de 2014
Por Amy Glendinning - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
I wish I could be a Swallow or an Amazon. It was great fun to read about the adventures these kids came up with and their idyllic lifestyle. This is also an interesting (if fictional) view of hands-off parenting: the mother gladly sends her children on their independent adventure to an island with just a few guidelines about touching base infrequently.

This book's greatest strength and weakness is that it lacked serious conflict and did not suck me in. I was able to put the book down...and I found that pleasant for a change, since I normally gulp in one sitting. I read some, put it down for a few days, went back and read some more. I wish that today's literature had not built up a desire in me and in so many others to have serious, high conflict. I'm glad the kids were never in grave danger or trying to save the world. They had adventures, but I was never terrified for their lives and just enjoyed their good-natured battles and explorations.

5.0 de 5 estrelas More great fun with the Swallows and Amazons! 15 de setembro de 2015

If you're not familiar with the author Arthur Ransome, just Google his name to see how big his fan group is.

These books (Swallows and Amazons is the first in the series) were written about 80 years ago and the stories are still wonderful. I started reading the S&A books back in the mid-1960's when I was still in grade school. My mom had read them as a young girl and she got me started. I now own all 12 of the books in the series and I re-read them every couple years. Even though I know all the plot lines, Ransome tells such great stories that I always enjoy them as much as the first time I read them about 50 years ago. They're perfect for adventure lovers of any age!! Although you don't HAVE to read the books in order in order, it's better if you do as the author develops the existing characters and introduces new ones as he goes along so you get to know them. Swallowdale is the second in the series after Swallows and Amazons.

5.0 de 5 estrelas especially for children who love the thought of adventure without their parents 1 de maio de 2017

While "Swallows and Amazons" was written in the 1930s that doesn't mean there isn't a lot here, especially for children who love the thought of adventure without their parents. Parents will appreciate the metaphors and poetry of the book; young readers will love the idyllic adventure on a lake island in the last warm days of summer holidays in the North of England. (This was the first long book I read as a child. One of the unintended consequences of this was that it gave me confidence to tackle other longer, more complex books.)

4.0 de 5 estrelas Great story of kids challenging themselves and taking chances 2 de outubro de 2013
Por Pete Crozier - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
Child rearing seems to have been very different at the beginning of the previous century where young children are allowed to sail to rocky island alone and spend the days camping relatively unsupervised.

Although children today are generally not permitted to do this (probably be arrested for child endangerment), children can still read this book and dream about how it was or it could be.

Briefly the story is about two groups of children, a group of four siblings - the Swallows, and the other, two sisters - the Amazons, who are enamored with sailing and of being outdoors and live a rich fantasy revolving around these two desires.

The two groups are at first in conflict over who controls the island, but after a challenge settles the issue join forces to thwart skullduggery that casts unfair blame on the Swallows.

The book might be a bit slow in the beginning for younger readers, but once the two groups meet, it takes off and is exciting in a very innocent way. These are children being children, not children trying to young adults, making it very different from much contemporary fiction aimed at tweens/young teenagers.
