Subject: Wonderful
I started out not so fond of the reader and by the end of the book was saying to myself that this reader did an amazing job. Goes to prove that you should never stop listening if you don't like the reader for the first chapter. He did an amazing job. The plot of the book was just what I needed today too. I almost forgot that it was an old book. It seemed so relevant.

5 stars from me! I could never imagine how much I would enjoy this book. The reader was excellent and the plot of the book makes you appreciate the value of joy and gladness,as you might have never done before. The story is altogether moving and captivating.It's honestly a must read for all of you out there who don't see things from their bright side. Pollyanna's game will make you realize that there are always things to be glad about,even when you think that everything is awful around you. Now I'm up to reading the sequel of the book "Pollyanna grows up", hope it's as good as the first one.

Brilliant story! Fantastic reader! This was really enjoying.Truly, it was one of the best recordings and the plot so wonderfully moving. This book teaches the reader lots of things. Things he has to search within his soul. The whole philosophy of Pollyanna is remarkable.I strongly reccomend it to all. Espessially those of you who are pessimistic about life.Pollyanna's glad game will surely bring a possitive influence in the way you consider the unplesant things around you and( who knows?) might even make you change the way you think of them.
