This book was totally AMAZING. I had to read it for the 2011-2012 Battle of the Books list. It was so great and I loved it so much. If you are a reader of adventure and seek hints of romance and inner-connection with a legitament, exhilarating story, you're looking at it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Journey to the River Sea is still to this day one of my favorite books. I have read several of Eva Ibbotson's books, but this one is definitely her best! The way she described the setting made me want to hop on a plane and see it for myself.

Journey to the River Sea is okay. It starts off more than a little slow, but picks up at the end.

It is a well written, funny and a tad bit educational. I like how the characters are very, obviously, thought of thouroughly, and have unique personalities, just like in real life. Speaking of which, the overall realism is a very high percentage. I have not completed the book, but only on chapter 5, and even then, it is very high in quality, and meets very high expectaions. I am working on it in a novel, for obvious reasons, and am glad that i chose it for my group. Highly recomended, worth reading, even only to chapter 5, book. Must read. If you see this book on the shelves of your local book store, snatch it before anybody else can get at it.

When I first began reading this book I thought it was horrible. I didn't like it at all and I really didn't want to read it but as we kept on reading I started to like it. I guess that I just hated the beginning of the book and loved it towards the end. The beginning seemed dull to me so when your reading this book and you think the beginning is dull don't stop reading it because it does get very interesting towards the end of the story. Many events happen more towards the end. Many exciting events happen and make you more interested in finding out what happens to the characters in the book.

Journey to the River Sea was one of the best books I have read in a long time. It was exciting and fun. This book is not any old predictable book where you can automatically guess what is going to happen. If you read this book ,i can assure you that you will not be dissapointed.

The setting for Journey To The River Sea by Eva Ibbotson mostly takes place in the Amazon. Once you get into the book it is very hard to put it down. The book has suspense and drama. Maia is an orphan living in and going to the best school in London. Suddenly she learns that she is going to have to stay with her unknown relatives, the Carters, in the Amazon. She thinks that her cousins will like her and every thing will be fun. On her journey to the Amazon, she meets her governess and they become friends. She also meets a young actor named Clovis. When she gets to her new house, it is anything but fun. She is not allowed to go outside and play. Her two cousins, Beatrice and Gwendolyn, are mean to her because they have never lived with anyone before. After she gets settled in, she finds that the Indians are not bad and they will not do anything to her. An Indian boy brings her out to a lagoon where she meets a young boy named Finn. He explains that he needs her to help him get away. His grandfather has sent two people to bring him back so he can inherit Westwood, when his grandfather dies. Both his uncle and father would have been the next in line to inherit Westwood, but they both have died. Maia, Finn and Clovis come up with a plan to have Clovis and Finn switch places. The story continues with them carrying out their plan. After you get done with the first few chapters of the book you will be drawn into the story. It¿s an easy book to read and to understand. I recommend this book for intermediate school-age children and some high school teens.

One of my very favorite books. It does NOT start off slow. Ibbotsen describes things wonderfully. If I could, I'd give it 10 stars.

This book was great!!! I think that anyone should read it if they like fiction with a little bit of humor and lots of adventure! I wished this book would never end!!

This book is an adventure, twisted with intrigue and love. You can probably relate to one of the charaters, or more. There is never a dull moment in this book-- you should read it!

Journey to the River Sea was a great book to read. It was inspritainal with a tuch of emotions to set it off. It is the classic cinderalla story with a strong sense of adventure. I would recomend it to anyone.

Eva Ibbotson continues to delight with her beautifully written fantasy. This book had echoes of Robin McKinley and Diana Wynne Jones, and I recommend it most enthusiastically.

I havent read this yet but somebody i saw was recommending it so i decided to take a little look at it. Im probably not going to get it because it has only zero stars and doesnt look that interesting. But for people who are looking for a great book ead harry potter 1-7.
