I read the book Wind In The Willows and it was one of the best books I have read. I thought that The book was just going to be an old classic and boring book. But now after reading it, I realize that everybody should read the book once in their lifetime.

The setting of the book is in the Wild Wood and along the river banks. There are many charming characters such as the handsome Mole, the wise and old Badger, the caring and brave Water Rat, and who could forget the crazy and adventurers Toad. There are weasels and ferrets who try to over run Toad Hall.

It all starts when Mole decides to go boating with Ratty instead of doing his annual spring cleaning. He finds a world he never knew was even there. He discovers the Wild Wood, a long river, Toad Hall, and many friends. Mole meets many new friends and lives with Ratty for a while. They all become quick friends. It made me feel happy for Mole when he made friends instead of being shy.

Yet, my least favorite character, Toad tests their great friendship. The reckless Toad gets a hobbie of motorcars and gets taken to the prison for speeding and driving crazy. This made mad me at Toad because he endangered all of the animals. I thought the poor Toad was done for good but no. He manages to escape. Toad gets the washerwomen's outfit and sneaks out of the prison and makes it all the way home. I was amazed at how clever he was to get out. I was glad that Toad got out because the friends could continue their great friendship.

Meanwhile, Water Rat's good friend Otter's son has gone missing. When I read this I was scared because Portly was just a young pup. After a long time searching, they found him alive sitting in all the snow. I was very happy that they had found him.

This was a very interesting book. As I read it I felt like Toad was a `Prodigal Son', who came back only far enough to receive acceptance, then returned to his bad habits till he was in trouble again.

It reminded me much of myself, playing at being Christian before really giving Christ all areas of my life. Like Toad I would repent, but then not really change.

Rat was wise and resourceful, Mole was tender and caring and awe-full like a child yet also very wise. Badger is like a wise mature old mentor or guide, sent to give direction, and lead one to find one's own purpose in life.

Yet the mix of Animal and Human society just did not make sense to me. It felt like a badly planned Narnia novel. It did not explain how the animal and human worlds came to interact and share a language or culture.

But over all it was a fun read even if dry in some spots.

(First written as Journal Reading Notes in 1999.)
