    A Rare Jem. A Must Read

    This is an incredible novel. It offers a glimpse into everyone's desire to belong, and once that has been established, we can finally know what it is to truly feel and be at home.

    A Good ride

    This is a good read. Yes, the movie follows much of the book, but you get so much more in the book. It is an experience worth reading.

    Forget the movie, read the book!

    Never knew this existed until I saw a documentary on the making of the movie. The movie is still a favorite, but I am loving this book. It is beautifully written and gives insight into every character. The Native American culture is the featured theme and one can achieve a real understanding of a culture that should never have been taken away.

    A simple tale that became a great movie

    It's a bit hard to believe that Kevin Costner turned such a simply written book into such a wonderfully sophisticated film. But that's exactly what happened. <BR/><BR/>Michael Blake's book reads as though it was written for a junior high and high school audience. That doesn't stop it from being a well-done tale of life on the prairie in 19th-century America, although why Costner made his Indians Sioux instead of Commanche as written by Blake is beyond me. <BR/><BR/>Aside from that difference, Costner obviously followed Blake's novel almost to the letter; I felt as if I was seeing the movie all over again. But Blake's writing style is something of a disappointment. After seeing the movie I was expecting a much more detailed story of John Dunbar's transformation into Dances With Wolves - something on the order of James Clavell's "Shogun". If you picked this book up looking for information on how Native Americans lived back in their glory days I suggest you look elsewhere. But if you're looking for a well done Western this is the book for you.

    The Movie, the Soundtrack, the Book...all so very excellent.

    I really have a problem trying to find the words to fully describe the tremendous amount of pleasure I found reading, or rather, living this book. There may be other books as good, but none better!!! Michael Blake-- 'YOU'RE THE MAN'!!!!!

    It's All Good

    Dances With Wolves by Michael Blake was a pretty good book. But one thing that could have been improved is some parts can be explained better. For example, when Dunbar gets to the west, no one is there. But they don't tell what he thinks about it. but the book had good points to it as well. It stays interesting throughout and is action packed and exciting. This book should be for teens and adults because it would be hard for a child to understand and it is exciting enough for teens to enjoy.
