As it explores themes of rejection, deprivation and illness, the novel relates to a wide audience. Porter offers an enlightening journey into the world of a child’s innocence, whose positive energy has the mystical power to alleviate even the bleakest social and personal circumstances. With a good storyline and a positive message, Pollyanna is an inspiration to many never to give up on life.

Librivox recording of Pollyanna by Eleanor H. This is a very important book. Even though this is fiction do not doubt that something can be learned by reading or hearing how this was written. As I listened to this recording of Eleanor H. Porter's Pollyanna it showed me many signs that there had been a huge amount female repression in the past by both the way the story unfolds and its many instances of archaically worded sentences.

She looked up from her book, it is true, as Nancy and the little girl appeared in the sitting-room doorway, and she held out a hand with duty written large on every coldly extended finger. How do you do, Pollyanna? I – She had no chance to say more. Pollyanna had fairly flown across the room and flung herself into her aunt’s scandalized, unyielding lap.

We are a big reading family, going through 4 books at a time (one for car rides, one for after dinner, etc). We loved 'Pollyanna' so much, I ordered this one the day we finished Book 1. While one could argue whether book 1 or 2 is the best, it's a bit like arguing about the Godfather series (could the second one be as good as the first, without having seen part 1?).
The first 1/3 of the book starts with Pollyanna in about the same place as book 1 ends. Then it suddenly takes a HUGE leap and we meet up with 20 year old Pollyanna, who has to deal with grown-up issues: death in the family, financial issues, how romance can affect friendships, etc. She deals with them all gracefully and continues to use the Glad Game to improve her life and others around her.
All the characters we love from Book 1 are back again, each more grown up than before: Jimmy, Jamie, Sadie, Aunt Polly (she does get a bit morose in the sequel), Mr Pendleton and Nancy.
I love how Eleanore Porter was able to reconcile a grown-up Pollyanna and the Glad Game, not an easy feat. And I must admit, there were several moments that the storyline drove me a bit nuts, but it was because I was eager for resolution to the difficulties Pollyanna faced! While the ending was fairly predictable, I'm a sucker for a happy ending where all loose ends get tied up. Even in its predictability, Ms. Porter gives us a few surprises.
Only wish there was a third 'Pollyanna' book!

My youngest granddaughter and I just finished reading this. She is far more artistic than academic and I hope to expand that perspective to including reading as an equal player in her life.

We began reading this Kindle version of the book. About halfway thru I stumbled over a printed version which included pictures. I asked her if the pictures were what she had thought the characters looked. She said no, I smiled - thinking, hoping, she has taken a step into the world of reading.

We are now reading the Kindle version of the second of Porter's books "Pollyanna Grows Up". I asked her if we should get a version with pictures and she replied "No, this is more fun", and I smiled taking that as a sign of of another step into into the world of reading.

For a second grader she is pretty shrewd, I think she gets that from her Mom, who certainly didn't get it from her Dad :)
After reading this book for myself, I have to bite back correcting people who say "She's such a Pollyanna" when they mean that a person is in deep denial about the negatives of a situation. Porter's Pollyanna is well aware of the negative side of things. When she can, she makes an active choice to look for the good. Even she is sometimes confronted with something too horrible to "gladify."

With that out of the way, this book is snort-through-your-nose funny, and so very charming. The many characters Pollyanna meets throughout her small town are appealingly drawn - even the cranky ones - and Pollyanna's effect on everyone is magical. Whenever I give it a read, I find myself playing The Glad Game in my own life. For a cynical woman like me, that's quite the shift!

It would make a perfect read-aloud with your kids except for the unfortunately frequent use of "she ejaculated" to mean "she cried" or "she exclaimed." It would be easy enough to pick another word to read in that one's place.
I loved the movie as a child, and found the book to be beautifully written. Porter's novel is much richer than the movie with its depth of character and its message. The book challenges us to step outside of our preconceived boxes and treat all with respect. I read it on the plane to the east coast and found myself smiling and shedding tears of both joy and sadness. Well worth reading.
I remember my first Pollyanna book. I found it in the old book pile at the Salvation Army store. I believe the title was Pollyanna's Western Adventure. In that story, Pollyanna was an adult, and married to Jimmy Pendleton. His work takes them to a western town where Pollyanna continues bringing happiness to everyone she meets. I loved the book then and would have read more, but, at that time (Late fifties) the books were long out of print, except for this one.
The idea of a little girl and later, a woman who manages to bring happiness into the lives of so many really sad people was enchanting then, and is still enchanting today.
It is, pure Victorian sentimentality, but it is Victorian sentimentality at its best. The idea that, no matter how horrible your life may be, there is still sometime to be glad about may be trite, but it is also true.
Every boy or girl should be exposed to this idea early in life. It gives us something to hold on to through all the hard times we all go through.
This series of books is one way to give them that exposure.
Pollyanna has become part of our language and I think you should make the novel part of your library. Yes, it's borderline treacle but it has much to recommend it for a quick escape from our dark cynical times. Pollyanna is the original Glad Girl and you will be glad to meet her. Although her name has come to mean overly optimistic to those who haven't read the book, in this little novel she is a rather special eleven year old girl who overcomes much and survives. Along the way she makes those around her happy often against much that is difficult. If you place her character in her historical setting of 1913, she doesn't seem so much a Valentine as a true glimpse of a much gentler and optimistic time in America where anything was possible. Not a bad fable for readers young and old today. It has humor and pathos and a page turning plot. There's a reason we still remember Pollyanna. So do yourself a favor and rediscover Ms. Porter's lovely book. You'll be glad you did. The "glad" thing will make more sense after you learn to play Pollyanna's game.
