商品の説明

内容紹介

In tiny Lifbau, in 1863, a girl of noble birth is simply not allowed to have adventures.

At 14, Anna realizes she can't pass for a boy much longer. This may be her last chance to find the adventure she craves. Disguised as Albert, she fights bullies and intervenes in kidnappings, and best of all, she can work as a stable boy!

But can she live up to her hero's expectations while living a lie? Especially when the villain's approval is much more fun to get?

The Adventure of Anna the Great is a 68,000 word novel of adventure, horses and intrigue.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Excellent Indie Author! 2010/6/28
投稿者 Linda B. Anderson - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
The theme of this story is universal--to become better than you are and to find joy in what you do.

The style of writing is fast paced, the historical settings are accurate and the characters are truly believable--- I cared about Anna and didn't want her found out.
Though this book is aimed at a young market, as a former tree climbing girl, I found the story charming.

This Indie author can write and has a great future ahead of her.

Anna is "every-girl!" She is a tom-boy who is frustrated by her parent's expectations and the restrictions of the times on all girls. She is expected to behave like a young lady, to practice her reading, music and needlework, so she can make a debut and find a husband. She wants to see the world.

With a little help from her friends she transforms herself into Albert, the stableboy
and sets off on her once in a lifetime adventure--but only till Christmas!

Albert is an accomplished horseman with a penchant for intrigue and he manages to become entangled in a kidnapping. His role--to save the damsel in distress! But Anna could be the one in distress is she is found out.

Albert manages to travel quite a long way, finds a job, a mentor, makes friends and enemies, has the time of his/her life and in the process grows up a little bit.

I think Anna will continue her adventures and eventually find romance---just as her parents wish.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Fun MG adventure story 2010/7/1
投稿者 L. H. - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版
I read a description of this book that described it as a young adult swashbuckler about a girl who disguises herself as a boy in order to have adventure. Great! I'm a fan of Tamora Pierce's Alanna books (about a girl who disguises herself as a boy in order to be a knight), so this sounded like it would be right up my alley. Then I read the first couple of pages, and my heart sank.

--------------------------
A girl's appearance was very important to Celeste, but then she was truly lovely. Her skin was translucent and glowing, like a pearl. Her eyes were large, and her little mouth was red and round. Her body was rounded too, and already quite feminine.

"They'll never think I'm a boy with these beautiful flowing tresses," I said firmly. I raised my hand to snip some more, but she floated across the room to stop me. I can't describe Celeste's walk any other way. The huge folds of silk and lace cover any sign of legs.
---------------------------

Translucent, glowing skin? Floating across the floor? There are certain things I can't handle in my books, and flowery descriptions like that are one of those things (unless part of a parody and meant to be funny). Fortunately, I stuck with it and kept reading, and the flowery descriptions were confined to the description of Anna's cousin, Celeste, at the beginning of the story.

Although described as YA, I'd consider this story as middle grade (MG), appealing more to an 8-12 year-old audience rather than a YA/12+ one. It's just the kind of story I would have loved to get my hands on in 4th and 5th grades. By the time I was in 6th grade, I preferred my books to have some romance, which this book doesn't have, but that was just a personal preference on my part.

The author sucked me in with the story's mystery, and I didn't even realize how unrealistic much of the story was until I had finished; I was consumed with learning what the mysterious Mrs. MacGuffin had to tell the queen and why Hugo and Tybalt kidnapped her. It was just a fun adventure story.

After finishing, I was left with some questions and wishing I had gotten to see more of Anna's back story before she left on this grand adventure. These aren't complaints exactly, just questions I was left with, and I guess it's because I was interested in Anna that I want to know more. For example, did she practice riding a horse astride (sorry...I don't know if that's correct horse terminology)? She had bought a regular saddle saying it was a gift for her brother, but did she ever have a chance to practice riding that way before running away? She seemed to ride awfully well, so I assume she did, but when? How?

Second, she mentions men who taught her to fence, but, again, I was left wondering how she convinced them to teach her? Who taught her and why?

Last, I wish the author had let us into Anna's head a little more about her desire to disguise herself as a boy. At times I felt like it was purely for the adventure and freedom that dressing as a boy would allow her. At other times, when she thought things like, "With the closing of that door I became a boy," I wondered if she really felt trapped in the wrong body, if inside she really was a boy.

Even though not a perfect book, I'd certainly be interested in reading a prequel that details her life before this adventure to get answers for some of my questions, and I'm interested to know what happens to Anna as she grows up if there are sequels. Heck, I'd love to read the love story of Johan and the queen too (so long as it ends happily)!
