Overview

ANNALS OF A QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD IS A VERY GOOD BOOK! VERY, VERY, VERY GOOD! THAT'S A TRIPLE VERY! VERY GOOD BOOK! 420 PAGES!

In this tale, George Macdonald recounts in very fine detail his first experience as Parson. After reading the book I almost wondered why it was titled "Quiet Neighborhood". Sounds boring doesn't it? Well, it's not. You'll discover some of the most remarkable and extraordinary people in the pages of this book, all with a story of their own.
This is one of those books that offers the reader, however, more than a merely interesting story; though it is that as well. Some of George MacDonalds most core beliefs are revealed through the voices and actions of his characters, including the Parson himself (George Macdonald, or Mr. Walton in the book). How much of the book is fiction, and how much of it actually happened, I do not know and it doesn't really say. Nor do I think it matters a great deal.
The best character by far--and the book is well worth reading just for her--is twelve-year-old Judy. She's marvelous. You can't get enough of her. You love her so much! And she's so funny.
The two worst villains, Mrs. Oldcastle and her servant, Sarah (aka, the White Wolf) are equally marvelous in a wicked sense.

    Great Old Read

    This book is masterfully written and will keep the reader's attention from beginning to end. If the reader is family with Scripture, he or she will find the same regularly woven into the fabric of the book. One chapter is a sermon entitled 'God and Mammon'. Many (including myself) believe this to be MacDonald's autobiographical sketch of his first pastorate.
