the best book in the logan family series

For those that read Roll of thunder hear my cry, you need to read this book if you haven't already. And if you plan on reading roll of thunder...then read this first. It's about a man's struggle and determination to own a piece of land (I forgot how large it is) for his family and generations to come. It's also about love, family, frienships, and most importantly growing up and trust. This book is on definetely on my top 10 list!

Very bad

I had to read this book for school and it was probably the worst book I ever read. If I could give this book 0 stars I would but I have to give at least 1.

    L@@K at This!

    The Land by: Mildred D. Taylor had a very interesting plot. It allowed the reader to become one with the book, and journey into the life of Paul-Edward Logan, an African American trapped in the late 1800¿s trying to earn his way after leaving his father¿s land. Something about how he endured racial insults and pursuing his way to earning and saving his money can make a ready feel as if they just made Paul-Edward Logan a hero. A few things that, respected author, Mildred D. Taylor could work on in her writing, would have to be to make the storyline less jolting. First a chapter would be too slow, then once the reader got to the next it would pick up in action and suspense. The story would make a reader nauseated because the words are so deep and descriptive while Mrs. Taylor fits them perfectly into the story. Considering the age limit on the book¿s cover, some of the words are a bit out of the age group. Praises that this reviewer would give to The Land would be the wonderful life of Paul-Edward Logan and how all the characters that the reader met worked their way into the story with grace. The story was enjoyable because there was entertainment, flickers of action, and entertaining characters. Mildred D. Taylor has done it yet again with a wonderful and life-like piece of literature that will be suited for a mature age group.
