A childhood favorite re-visited.Is the story as good as I remember? – YesWhat ages would I recommend it too? – All ages. Children will enjoy the single storyline; while adults enjoy an easy afternoon read (especially while waiting on a bus, show, doctor, or other appointments).Length? –

Reasonable for an afternoon.Characters? – Memorable, several characters, though a bit confusing in the beginning.Setting? – Real world, Recent times (1970′s and 1980′s).Written approximately? – 1992.Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Yes! At the beginning, it moves extremely slowly as it retells the original “Misty of Chincoteague” story. The “As you know, Bob” style of writing. The fist third of the book could have been made into a one page prologue for those who either had not read, or not recently read “Misty of Chincoteague.” Seemed dull at first. Finally, once it got to the story, it jumped around a bit, and leaves the reader wondering where the twelve years disappeared to. Also, what happened to Chris?Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? – Not at present.
