Meg of Mystery Mountain

(4.5 stars; 71 reviews)

Jane Abbott, tall, graceful and languidly beautiful, passed through the bevy of girls on the wharf below Highacres Seminary with scarcely a nod for any of them. Closely following her came three other girls, each carrying a satchel and wearing a tailored gown of the latest cut. Although Esther Ballard and Barbara Morris called gaily to many of their friends, it was around Marion Starr that all of the girls crowded until her passage way to the small boat, even then getting up steam, was completely blocked. Jane, when she had crossed the gang plank, turned to find only Esther and Barbara at her side. A slight sneer curled her lips as she watched the adulation which Merry was receiving. Then, with a shrug of her slender shoulders that was more eloquent than words, the proud girl seated herself in one of the reclining deck chairs and imperiously motioned her friends to do likewise. “It’s so silly of Merry to make such a fuss over all those girls. She’ll miss the boat if she doesn’t hurry.” Marion had evidently thought of the same thing, for she laughingly ran up the gang plank, her arms filled with candy boxes, bouquets and magazines, gifts of her admiring friends. Depositing these on a chair, she leaned over the rail to call: “Good-bye, girls! Of course I’ll write to you, Sally, reams and reams; a sort of a round-robin letter to be sent to the whole crowd.” (Summary by Grace May North) (6 hr 26 min)

good story reader a little stiff sometimes

Author's Disappointing Choice Distracted Me From Rest Of Story

(3 stars)

All was well, until, in chapter 27, Meg speaks of her teacher telling the class the story of a thousand year old pine. Here the author chooses to give the teacher credit , as the originator and principal actor of that story, when it is, in fact, a real and true story, written by Enos A. Mills - and an all-time favourite of mine. Why she chose to do that is a mystery in itself.

lovely old time story

(4 stars)

Like a modern fairy tale. Wish reader had looked up how to pronounce Ute, which appears frequently in the story. She made me wince every time she said “Utee”.

Nice story, well read

(5 stars)

A cute story, some unexpected twists, classic ending. Every once in a while there was some odd background noise, but not objectionably so.

(3.5 stars)

I may never know if I am pronouncing the word Ute correctly again! Decent book. Great premise. Rushed ending
