Book Review of Bridge to Terabithia

Bridge to Terabithia
reviewed on

It's a really good and well-written story up to a point, but the tragedy towards the end spoiled it for me. I guess I grew up in a time when realistic books presumably written for children's entertainment didn't go head-on with the awfulness of life in this way. I found the sudden tragic twist in the plot upsetting in a way that tragedy in a book for adults is not. This is an award-winning book. It is adults that give awards to books, and I am very curious as to how many CHILDREN are crazy about this one.
