    • Written April 2, 20154.2 Stars - Enchanting sweet, loved every single minuteA classics girl-novel by Eleanor H. Porter (1868-1920) from 1913. I've been listening to this fantastic $1 audiobook (5:40 hrs - very well) narrated by Rebecca Burns these two last day. Oddly enough, I think I might like this young-girl book even more now as an grownup than as a girl long ago. These characters and especially this sweet sunshine girl Pollyanna made me just smiling in nearly six hours. Absolutely charming [...]

    • Pollyanna is the story of a young, optimistic girl who is tragically orphaned, sent to live with her grumpy Aunt, and ends up changing a town’s point of view through her sunny disposition. It's supposed to be inspiring. In fact, it’s probably the idea bud for books like The Power of Positive Thinking.Pollyanna, the eternal optimist, plays the ‘glad game’ where she always tries to find something to be glad about, no matter how challenging. Also, everyone who comes into contact with Pollya [...]

    • Eu estava TAO FELIZ de encontrar e leer isso! (Nao, na verdade, eu estava.)

      I picked this book up because I needed "a book over 100 years old" for my reading challenge this year, and being written in 1913 (making it currently 102 years old) it just fit the bill.I didn't really go into this book with any expectations. I've never seen the movie, I knew nothing of the plot, but I was intrigued to read a book written for young readers so long ago.I am happy to report that this book was delightful. I was smiling the whole time I read it, and was surprised and impressed how m [...]

      I'm GLAD I read it

    • Wow! What have I been missing all these years! As a child I grew up on the Disney movie of "Pollyanna" and thought it was just wonderful. I was never introduced to the "classics" or even realized that Pollyanna was a book turned into a movie. When I sat down with my chidlren to read this story I THOUGHT I knew what I was reading to them, but boy was I wrong!! It soon became apparent that this was another true o the test of time classics that takes you through all the emotions of a true clssic! M [...]

    • Pollyanna, read when I was in elementary school, is one of the books that helped to form my character. The concept of looking for the good in everything, even in events or people that showed no obvious goodness appeared, to my young mind, both a good idea and a challenge. First in imitation and later as habit I began to "look for the good."Recently I received a copy of a college application essay a young friend had written about me, an influential person in her life. The characteristic in me tha [...]

    • My teen daughter and I read this on the way to a soccer tournament and it was a great conversation starter on so many topics - one's approach to life and "bad" events or circumstances, communication styles, charitable endeavors, gender roles, and on and on. I'm sorry I didn't pick up Pollyanna until now, but enjoyed it immensely and was glad to have read it and finished it right before Thanksgiving! (pun intended)

    • Absolutely lovely! Such a sweet book. Highly recommended!

    • Such a sweet story. I really enjoyed this one.

      4 saoPollyanna có một hoàn cảnh rất giống Heidi, mà quyển Heidi thì mình thích vô cùng, nên khi đọc bối cảnh truyện không được phóng khoáng như vậy và cô bé Pollyanna không giống mình mong đợi ban đầu nên cũng khá là thất vọng.Tuy nhiên khi đã đi được nửa quyển sách rồi, nắm bắt được chủ đề quyển sách hướng đến thì sẽ thấy nó rất hay và hấp dâ [...]

    • When did I first read Pollyanna? I couldn't say. This little book is a perennial favorite. It's been a few years since I picked it up and this time I found that my memory had deceived me again. What you remember is a story about a girl who wants everyone to be glad, and who gets a happy ending at last. What you get is a story about an orphaned girl sent to a loveless home who reaches out to the troubled people of a small town, resulting in a wide variety of pathetic tales of woe and loss. Pollya [...]

    • Slatka draga Pollyanna! To je djevojčica koja uvijek u sebi i u drugima može pronaći nešto zbog čega će joj "biti drago". Svi bismo se trebali povesti za njenim primjerom. Jer za Pollyannu "disati ne znači živjeti". U životu treba učiniti puno više.Hvala Sanja, što si mi ovu krasnu knjigicu posudila na čitanje!

    • Δεν θυμάμαι πολλά, αλλά θυμάμαι να είχα περάσει καλά κάπου στην ηλικία των 11 (νομίζω) διαβάζοντας Πολυάννα. Το 4 μπαίνει λόγω όμορφης ανάμνησης (σε αυτό και στα υπόλοιπα της ιδίας).

    • It has taken me a while to get to this book, I distinctly remember watching the movie several times as a child.I thoroughly enjoyed it. It comes with a very strong message, and even some marital advice!!Pollyanna is terribly good. Her ability to play the game of always being so nice, her absolute charm is almost of the Mary Sue type character.However as a lesson, the book is wonderful, it is a gentle reminder that a lot more can be gained by being gracious, nice, etc then by being horrible.

    • It's terrible to admit, but this may be the first time I've ever read Pollyanna straight through (although I've definitely read it in bits and pieces). I feel like people sometimes associate Pollyanna with syrupy sweet, too-good-for-this-world cheerfulness, but she's so much better than that! She's such a real little girl--talking too fast and too much, mixing her thoughts up delightfully, and sometimes being painfully blunt and observant, although of course she never intends to cause pain. Even [...]

    • What a great story. I love Pollyanna's attitude, her glad game, and her outlook on all things. I would love to know this girl. I would love to be this girl. I read this aloud to my daughter and she greatly enjoyed the story as well. Now we will move on to Pollyanna Grows Up and see if we enjoy that one as well.

    • After reading the Hunger Games trilogy, followed by somber nonfiction, I felt ready to read something good. Not good as in well-reviewed literature, but something good as in 'happy' literature. Eleanor Porter's Pollyanna did not disappoint.You've probably heard someone called, been called, or possibly (hopefully not) called someone a Pollyanna. It's someone who is considered impossibly optimistic in the worst possible circumstances. Such people are thought to be annoying, naive, even exasperatin [...]

    • Pollyanna gets a bad rap in this jaded age. Written in 1913, this is the story of an orphaned little girl who makes the best of her life experiences, always looking for something good to be had of a challenging situation. Pollyanna lost her mother at an early age, and then her missionary father a few years later. As a family, they themselves lived a life of privation, while ministering to those less well off.Upon the death of her father, Pollyanna is sent to live with her Aunt Polly, who--as she [...]

    • This book deserves its position as a children's classic.The little orphan girl, Pollyanna, is sent to live with her gruff Aunt Polly after the death of her father. What a potential set-up for a sad life outlook, but she manages to transform not only her aunt but many other townspeople with the 'Glad Game' her father taught her. Always look for the silver lining in every cloud and you'll be bound to find it.I've noticed Pollyanna has been given a bit of a bum rap in recent years. She's almost alw [...]

    • There are many classics that I did not read as a child. Treasure Island, Frankenstein, Robinson Crusoe, Around the World in 80 Days, and Little Women are but a few.However, I vow to systematically read these treasures in the next few months. Today I read Pollyanna.Published in 1913, this gem stands the test of time. It is delightfully sappy, corny and wonderfully filled with old fashioned fun.Pollyanna is an orphan whose father left her with the wonderful gift of optimism and the ability to find [...]

    • I loved the movie and i can't wait to read the book. I loved loved this book. It was so beautifully written. There were moments when I just wanted to cry from happiness. The way Pollyanna touched everyone she met was amazing. There isn't anything better than smiling so much after finishing a book. When I feel bad or sad this will be the book I'm going to read to feel better.

    • Pollyanna Whittier: ovvero, storia di una piccola santa della letteratura infantile, resa martire per mancanza d’immaginazione dell’autrice e salvata in extremis con prevedibile miracolo finale.La cosa irritante di questo libro non è tanto la protagonista, che in fondo è solo una bambina scema. Il vero dramma sono gli adulti, tutti pronti ad abboccare a questo suo benedetto gioco della contentezza. Salva perfino una mezza prostituta! Cristo con la Maddalena in confronto è ’na schiappa.C [...]

    • Inspirational. And, to my surprise, it wasn't that cheesyI wonder why people say that about this book? I have no plans to watch the movie.Recommended to ages nine and up. It's sad, but clean and ultimately uplifting.Discussion questions:1. If the readers haven't read Anne Of Green Gables, skip this question. Compare this book to LM Montgomery's work. Which was better? How did the books differ? Etc.2. Discuss the ending. Was it too pat/happy? Or was it right for the story?3. Was Pollyanna a Mary- [...]

      It was the very first BOOk that I read. At 9 years old. I don't remember it very well, and it took like AGES to finish it. And probably I didn't like it, because it was an obligation, BUT it opened the doors to this very world that I just adore, nowadays. So, it's a 5 stars ;)

    • Vamos brincar amigos "do jogo do contente", onde fica combinado que veremos beleza e coisas boas em tudo, mesmo que sejam coisas que não nos pareça boas, mas que irá nos ensinar a dar valor nas coisas que temos!!!

    • The concept of the “Glad Game” was actually interesting to me when I started reading this novella. And really at some points during my everyday life I found myself “playing the game”, and it did help sometimes, to my surprise. However I did have a problem with the comparisons that Pollyanna used throughout the story. I am against comparing oneself to others as I see it the ultimate cause of unhappiness. If the author had dealt with this point better I believe it would have been a better [...]

    • I was thoroughly surprised how much I enjoyed Pollyanna, and to think I was never going to read this book! The fact is Pollyanna has a bit of a bad reputation stemming quite possibly from the general cynicism of today's day and age. It's true that there are some shortcomings to this novel. 1) Quite a big chunk of the book seems to be just like Anne of Green Gables and in parts Anne of Avonlea (the disgruntled neighbour part). It starts off just like the Anne books do, and Pollyanna is just as ex [...]

    • I have clearly lived under a rock (not that this is news). I have heard my mom reference Pollyanna about a million times but until a couple of weeks ago didn't realize she was a book character. I'm not sure where I thought my mom (and others) got that name, but I'm not too swift on the uptake. I really wanted to hate this book, and frankly there are things to hate. But its impossible to hate it as a whole. It's overly simplistic, ridiculously sweet and still touching. I think you'd have to be de [...]
