I read this book for the first time when I was in 4th grade, 20 years later I still remember this story. I am so excited to buy and reread this book. Hopefully I haven't worked it up in my mind too much in those 20 years :).

This book was very good. I taught it to my eighth grade Literature class. They throughly enjoyed the story. It puts very heavy social issues on a middle school level. The boy in the story deals with the pros and cons of capitalism vs. communism, without bias one way or the other. The book contains strong themes of family and right and wrong. It would be a good story for teaching character, plot, and theme, as well as setting. The story line was captivating, and I found my students and myself wanting to know what was coming next.

I'm 50 now, looking 51 in the face, and I still remember this book. It was one of my all time favorites, along with the Chronicles of Narnia, and The Silver Sword. Bought it for my own daughter and nieces, too. Timeless, like all wonderful writing.

I read this years ago and all of the books i read were different, but this one captivated my 13 yr old mind. The story was so ahead of us then and the possibilites were endless. good reading for young kids and the story is interesting again for kids , I had an original copy for years and it finally fell apart.

We read it when we were kids, remembered it as adults. Thought we were stupid recollecting the games we played back then immitating Jon falling through the 'Door' and running like deer. C'mon, WHAT was the name of that book? Life's prejudices rearing its ugly head on an innocent boy, who could have been anyone - lost anywhere... 'the thoughts in this room are so loud, it's as if everyone was sceaming' (I think that's the quote, well that's why I came to bn to find and read it again!) I think Walter would agree..

This book is wonderful. I will add this to my collection of class read-a-louds. Did you know the movie 'Escape to Witch Mountain' was based on this book. So of course my students will watch the movie after reading the book and compare the two.

Of all of the books I read as a child this is one of the few that sticks in my head. For anyone that feels 'different' from others, whether it be intellectually, intuitively, or empathically, this book should have an almost hypnotic appeal.

The first day I held The Forgotten Door in my hand I was dreading it. I hated reading, I thought it was going to be another lousy book my teacher picked out. As i began reading the book I became so interested in it that when the bell rang for seventh period I couldnt put it down. I am very interested in the concept of the book. There is so much excitement in it. I love the way Jon is placed as a kid from another planet and has to find his way home after finding himself on earth. The characters in the story are so much like people now. My favorite part of the book was the end. The suspense was driving me crazy I had to find out what was going to happen. I would recommend this book to anyone who believes that we are not alone in this universe.

Loved this book the first time I read it in 6th grade. Read it again in my 30's and still loved it. Will absolutely capture the mind and curiosity of any young.

This is not a good book. It was boring and unpredictable. There were some good little parts about the people though. I would have never read it if I didn't have to read it in school. :(
