Gable Reviews The Four-Story Mistake

The Four-Story Mistake by Elizabeth Enright

four story mistake

Describe it in 25 words or less. The continued adventures of the Melendy children in their new home in the American countryside.

Any particular reason for choosing this book? I have read the first in the series and this is the next one.

Who was your favorite character and why? Randy because I could relate to her the most and she was fun, smart, and witty.

Who was your least favorite character and why? It was hard to have a least favorite character in the book. I’m going to have to say Cuffy, though, because she was far too strict for my liking.

Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while?  Was it worth the wait? It grabbed me immediately.

What did you think of the ending? Bittersweet and perfect and one of the best endings ever! (I love you Elizabeth Enright! Too bad you’re dead… I wanted to meet you and shower you with all the compliments you deserve for you poetic writing!)

Favorite quote: “To overdo something is to destroy it.” – Oliver.

Have you read other books in the series? I have read the first one and hope to read all the others. Though, I’m not really that excited about the next one because it seems like the third book in the series is always the rotten one in the bunch.

Songs: You can check out the songs mentioned in the book at Grooveshark.

Who would you recommend it to? People who love books with bittersweet endings and/or lots of adventure and people who love The Penderwick series by Jeanne Birdsall.

Number of unknown words: 26.

Recipe: Chocolate Chip Cookies
