Tuck Everlasting å S less a blessing that it might seem Complications arise when Winnie is followed by a stranger who wants to market the spring water for a fortune Tuck Everlasting is one of those books everyone should read at a young age After all who hasn't ever thought at least once about how it would be to live eternally to be free to do everything you want to to embrace life in all its different facets? The way this short novel deals with eternal life and raising the uestion about whether or not that can be considered a blessing or doom makes it an important addition to the literary worldFast paced and easy to read this is a book to devour in the course of three or four short hours and while not the most involving book which can be found out there at least it is able to make you think about what it would be like to have to live like the Tuck family does Wandering around eternally and restlessly comdemned to live on this earth until its very end The book itself introduces the character of Winnie Foster an eleven year old girl who meets the Tuck family and soon learns of their unbelievable secret that the four members of that family are immortal after they drank from a magic springNatalie Babbitt's prose is strong and powerful drawing a convincing picture of how life can possibly work without death Yet the book in itself is not without flaws; she never allowed the characters to become realistic For me especially the Tuck family felt like a gathering of stereotypes and the lack of dynamics between the family members itself didn't help matters Yet the potential was exploited almost completely additionally helped by some strong messages the connection between life and death the ideas of human greed and constant change the contrast between morality and craving and the values of love and humanityThe only thing which constantly bothered me was the way the Tuck family behaved at least except for Jesse the youngest son If you are condemned to live your life on this earth forever why constantly complain about your situation rather than actually doing something purposeful with your immortality? But then maybe that was yet another message Babbitt implied in her novel that the good hearted are almost never those who actually want to change something in this world while those with immoral and evil minded purposes long to rule the world mobi Ý Tuck Everlasting ☆ Natalie Babbitt
