Overview

Upon moving to Minnesota and living next to an Amish community, I was intrigued to learn about Amish life. That moment came, when I was working in my garden one Sunday. A brother and sister of the nearby Amish family decided to come over and talk to me while they went for a walk. I was flattered to get to know some of the family. My husband came out to greet them as well. I knew in my heart that I was going to be a part of this moving, beautiful story of which this was only the beginning. I, being a patient soul, was prepared to get to know, learn, offer help, and advise, if they asked of me, or when I thought they needed to know something. I only wanted to help them, especially a young Amish woman, succeed in their way of life. All human emotions from sad, happy, indifferent, and outright hilarious, at times, are evident. There is an element of suspense in the story. Shortly after, it was time to end and put down my pen.

    Average, at best....

    This book is short and the story is average, at best. The NOOKbook, Neighbor to the Amish, has significant editing problems that include basic grammar and spelling. You'll find periods in the middle of sentences, sentences of 3 words, that make no sense to the story, and blank pages. It leaves you wondering if this book was ever edited, at all. The lack of editing is distracting, but I was still able to read the book in an evening.

    dont waste your money

    Terrible editing... This author starts nitt picking her amish neighbors and has often repeated herself on certain subjects. Hopefully, she will understand that what she has written could cause some of her amish vistiors to be discilplined by the church for watching ' Those western movies",ect.. even if the incidents had happened twenty years ago or an hour ago. Furthermore, this sect of Amish she is describing is the Swartzentruber Old Order which is the strictest out of all the Amish. SHE NEEDS TO APOLOGIZE>> EVEN THOUGH IT WAS MINOR <<

    A "down to earth" interaction - interesting!

    The book is a "down to earth" interaction and dialogue with the Amish. It's fiction based on a true story. It's not necessarily a history lesson, rather a personal take by the author. The book could be used in an English class to find minor errors, since they don't take away the meaning of the story. It's a good book for grades 7-12, young adults, and adults as well.

    Very very basic

    This is the most basic book I have ever read, regardless of the subject. I love reading books about the Amish, but this is so poorly written that it's really difficult to continue reading. Check out the sample of the Nookbook or look at this in the store before you buy it. I can't believe it is $7.99. I think, no I know, that my 14 year old is a better writer. Where was the editor???

    Let's just say I am being generous with one star

    Living near the same Amish community as the author describes, I thought this book would be interesting to gain a different perspective. I don't wish to be cold-hearted but this book is inundated with grammatical errors (misspellings, run-on sentences, incomplete sentences, unnecessary punctuation etc.), repetitive and mundane information, and misconstrued conclusions of the Amish lifestyle (e.g. the Amish certainly don't speak Dutch, but rather a unique German dialect). I am disappointed more so with the publisher than the author of this book. How could a publication firm with a reputation give consent to distribute such (sorry to say this) drivel. Ms. Navor before you start your next endeavor to write a book, I suggest that you improve your grammar, do a little more research before putting ideas in print, and please have someone proof read your final work.
