5.0 out of 5 stars BEAUTIFUL! October 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read it not so long ago for my 5th grade homeschool project, and it was one of the best books I have ever read. Johanna Spyri really showed what it meant to her to be faithful to God. Spyri's tale was the most elegant, beautiful, flowing tale I have ever read.

Heidi was so spectacular that I would definately like to rate it hundreds of stars; and I consider reading all of Spyri's books. I think Heidi is the perfect book for people of all ages and if you like books such as "Little House on the Prairie" you will love Heidi.

The setting is somewhere in Switzerland with all the Alps. I think reading this book made me want to go to Switzerland! Like i've said before, this book is very beautiful-- everything about it-- the setting, the story, the way the author writes it, it is pure beauty. I don't think I-- possibly you-- have read any book as good as this.

So, overall, this book is the most best book for anyone who loves life on the alm, faithfulness to God, and a nice beautifully-written tale. This tale made me very amazed and happy at Johanna Spyri's literature, and I guarentee it will to you too. Heidi is the best book in the whole world. Pure Literature and Pure beauty.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed April 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this book on my kindle and was very disappointed because it appears to be abridged. I compared it to my unabridged bookshelf book of the same novel and the wording is different as well as simpler and less gramatically correct. I doubt although it is possible that I am being needlessly suspicious. In the future, I will buy a different kindle edition of this book.

However, since the book was free I did not lose any money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice reminder of my childhood... November 14, 2011
By Debbie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book when I was much younger and always thought of it as one of my favorites.

I decided to read it again on my Kindle (it's free) and still enjoyed it very much as an adult.

Beautiful writing and descriptions of the fresh mountain life. It made me want to go find a similar place in this hectic world.

2.0 out of 5 stars The book is missing pages September 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was thoroughly enjoying this book, when I realized a sentence dropped off and never picked up again. After scrolling back and forth, I realized that it was missing pages. Disappointed.
