Reviews - What do customers think about Elsie at Home (Elsie Dinsmore: the Original Elsie Classics)?

This book promotes tooth decay  Nov 11, 2004
I was given the unfortunate assignment to read this book for work. It has virtually no plot, and when something finally does happen, its over in about two sentences. For the most part, the characters (who it is virtually impossible to keep track of unless you've read the preceeding 20 stories) spend their time being impossibly nice to each other and quoting scripture passages. There is also a weird father/daughter dynamic in this story with an elder daughter disdaining any thought of marriage so that she might always remain with her father, and said father thinks this is simply wonderful. There are pages and pages devoted to the daughter telling her father how she never hopes to leave him. I know its not meant to be, but it strikes me as a little creepy.
Read something else and be glad you did.
Yawn(ZZZZZZZZZZ)  Feb 19, 2003
Penned in the mid-nineteenth century, the original Elise books were written by Martha Finley as a means to supprot herself after she suffered a serious injury. Finley wrote twenty-eight Elsie books before her death in 1909.
Books 1-14 is ok, but after that it is entierly boring. They even have Cp. Raymond reading out of a history book!
