Tuck Everlasting- Natalie Babbit mini-review

03 February 2009

Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbit
When you have water that could give you everlasting life (immortality) how would you felt if you drank it. In my opinion, I think its Ponce De Leon's fountain of youth. When Winnie meets Jessie Tuck and 'fall in love' with him even when he's ANCIENT but was only 17 when he drank the water. Winnie learns the Tuck family's secret she is bound to keep it a secret. The man in the yellow suit eavesdrops and tries to buy the Tuck land to get the water and sell it, but Mae Tuck kills him before he can. Now, sentenced to death, in which Mae Tuck will survive (immortal), Winnie must save her so that the world won't learn the Tuck family secret.


My thoughts:
What will happen? Will Wennie drink the immortality water and live forever and get married to Jessie like she wants to, or will she die and refuse to drink the water..
Its amazing, almost the best book I've ever read, but the movie is mostly a romance whereas the book is more of an adventure. It was really simple and short, and missed out on a lot of extra stuff that the movie added onto. There wasn't much to it, not really beefy and chunky, more like simple and sweet. I'd recommend you check this out at the library.

  1. As odd as it sounds, this is one of the rare exceptions to "the book is better than the movie" rule. I found the movie to be much more entertaining.
