    Best Book I've Read In a While

    Kameron Hall Jackaroo 358 pages The main theme of the book is about a girl that is about ready to marry and she tries to be "Jackaroo," a character that resembles "Robin Hood," and has difficulties along the way. Jackaroo is a great book and Cynthia Voigt is a great author. I've only read this book by Cynthia and she gives great description of details of everything like the setting and people's descriptions. On page thirty through thirty-one in Jackaroo says- "At last Gwyn saw through the veil of snow the dark shape royalty. In part one the setting is very snowy and it is in the winter while in part two it is partly snowy and is in the start of spring, and they are both in mountainous areas. Like I've said there are plenty of details and everything is life-like. Gwyn is the main character and is very strong, healthy, and smart

    wow...

    it starts slow, and you feel as though you perhaps you're reading a story that's been started in a previous book. but right away you become engrossed. the lifestyle, whether accurate or not to the time, is facinating to read about. the characters, all of them, are easy to relate to. you find yourself walking side by side with gwyn, living everything along with her. burl is amazing in his own quiet, distant way. the time gwyn spends stuck in the small house is the turning point in the story, especially after the lords attack. by the time you're reaing the last pages, things begin to fall into place and all you can do is hope for a secnd book, because you know this isn't it for these characters...

    Pretty good

    I love stuff like this, like Robin Hood. Jackaroo also gives to the poor. It is a book you want to read if you like a lot of adventure with a little tidbit of romance. It is a little confusing at the end though.

    Reluctant Readers Watch Out

    Ms. Voigt is awesome. I bought 3 copies of Wings of a Falcon at a used bookstore. My 9th graders cannot keep from reading the book. Furthermore, they made me order Jackroo and On Fortune's Wheel because they love the writing, characters, etc. A fabulous storyline.

    A book to read at least once a year

    This book started me reading Cynthia Voigt. I love her complex characters and style of writing that works for children and adults alike. This ¿Robin hood¿ tale of love and adventure will draw you in form the first page and keep you going until the last book of the series, Elske.

    My First, But Not Last Cynthia Voigt Book

    'Jackaroo' was such true Adventure-Romance. I had been expecting one thing from 'Jackaroo', and got something so different and so much better! Cynthia Voigt has the talent to weave you into her story and make you feel apart of the characters in it.

    Really Cool....

    Jackaroo is an awesome book to read...especially if you like to read fiction stories from hundreds of years ago! It's about a young girl who struggles with her desire to become more than she is.. to find true love and to help people, by becoming the legendary 'Jackaroo.' In the end, she finds more adventure and love than she ever could have expected...If you enjoyed 'On Fortunes Wheel' I would read this book! Cynthia Voigt is very convincing w/ her stories and this is something you do not want to miss!!

    Truely a Wonderful Book

    This book is truley a wonderful book. It is full of many adventures that Gywen goes through, including becoming Jackaroo herself. Don't think I gave it away because there's a lot more to this story then you think. I recommend this book to 7th graders and above, because the one's younger then that couldn't truely appreciate the happenings in this story. This book tells the story of a 16 year old girl, named Gywen, who is the Inkeeper's Daughter. This tale is of both adventure and romance and I hope if you decide to read this book, you will enjoy it as much as I did.
