Tuck Everlasting is one of those books everyone should read at a young age. After all, who hasn't ever thought at least once about how it would be to live eternally, to be free to do everything you want to, to embrace life in all its different facets? The way this short novel deals with eternal life - and raising the question about whether or not that can be considered a blessing or doom - makes it an important addition to the literary world.

Fast-paced and easy to read, this is a book to devour in the course of three or four short hours, and while not the most involving book which can be found out there, at least it is able to make you think about what it would be like to (have to) live like the Tuck family does: Wandering around eternally and restlessly, comdemned to live on this earth until its very end. The book itself introduces the character of Winnie Foster, an eleven-year-old girl who meets the Tuck family and soon learns of their unbelievable secret: that the four members of that family are immortal after they drank from a magic spring.

Natalie Babbitt's prose is strong and powerful, drawing a convincing picture of how life can possibly work without death. Yet the book in itself is not without flaws; she never allowed the characters to become realistic. For me, especially the Tuck family felt like a gathering of stereotypes, and the lack of dynamics between the family members itself didn't help matters. Yet the potential was exploited almost completely, additionally helped by some strong messages (the connection between life and death, the ideas of human greed and constant change, the contrast between morality and craving, and the values of love and humanity).

The only thing which constantly bothered me was the way the Tuck family behaved - at least except for Jesse, the youngest son. If you are condemned to live your life on this earth forever, why constantly complain about your situation rather than actually doing something purposeful with your immortality? But then, maybe that was yet another message Babbitt implied in her novel: that the good-hearted are almost never those who actually want to change something in this world, while those with immoral and evil-minded purposes long to rule the world.

When I first read this, I was younger than ten years old. I remember because I thought Natalie Babbitt was Natalie Imbruglia, and thought how cool she must have been to write both this book and the hit song "Torn" that was on the radio all the time. A gentle note to little kid me: they're not the same person, and this book came out twenty years before the song did. I didn't understand half the book when I read it the first time. I read it again when I was like...thirteen or something. I remember thinking it was amazing, and rolling my eyes at the movie adaptation trailer. While dramatic, I knew it would take serious padding to make into a movie. Now I've read it as an adult. The book jacket describes a suspenseful, plot-charged story, but the reality itself is a character study of utter slowness. It's supposed to be that way, in my mind: shows the reader just how boring immortality combined with invincibility would be. A lot of dark concepts are brought up in a book intended for children, but they're explored in ways that...I guess work. At the same time: hey Jesse. I get that you're starved for new company, but you just asked a ten-year-old to marry you. I don't care that it's the 1880s. That's creepy. And the kidnapping, and the--so many action-y parts of the book were actually unsettling, but couched in the slowness of the writing, I couldn't be scared. I feel kind of gross now. I think this is a specific kind of book for children, and I'm glad it's still around. I might get copies for my nieces, or tell them about it. ( )

So sad.
Gods do I love this book. ( )

It's a pity that this book has become cliche from too much reading too early and a bad movie. I can't bear to read it again, the memory of it is still fresh, though not the plot. That memory of loss is too strong. ( )

Kindhearted ten-year-old Winnie Foster gets caught up with the Tuck family and their secret. Winnie can hardly believe their story, yet when it leads to tragedy, she comes to their aid in a surprising way. The story seems too dark for its intended audience since Winnie witnesses a murder and helps the murderer escape from jail. Yet is it any darker than the fairy tales I loved as a child? ( )

The first week of August hangs at the very top of the summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning.

Winnie woke early the next morning. The sun was only just opening its own eye on the eastern horizon and the cottage was full of silence. But she realized that sometime during the night her had made up her mind: she would not runaway today. 'Where would I go anyway?'....But in another part of her head...she knew there was another sort of reason for staying at home: she was afraid of going away alone.
