I liked this book, but not nearly as much as other books E. Konigsburg wrote. Great fun and narrated beautifully by Molly Ringwald. altheaannGo to altheaann's profile

I liked this book, but not nearly as much as other books E. I didn't particularly love the flashback, I would have liked it better if the book was straight forward. It's an enjoyable book, but I would not recommend reading it out loud as the back and forth is confusing. altheaannGo to altheaann's profile. I picked this up because I'd read several of Konigsburg's books when I was very young, and really liked them, esp.

I was unsure of Molly Ringwald as the narrator at first, but her sort of monotone narration actually fit the story really well. I couldn't help but think of Moonrise Kingdom as I listened to this audiobook. For me, there was a very similar tone and feel between this book and that movie. From a very basic summary Margaret is sent to a summer camp while her parents supposedly neglect her in favor of a trip to Peru.

We were passing markers that explained-in paragraphs that were too long and lettering that was too small-what we should be appreciating n extremely slow vehicle to be able to make out what they said. I didn’t even try. Tartufo sat on the floor, resting his head on the seat between Uncle and me. I stared out the window, thinking that everyone at Talequa had a name for me but none of them knew me. Even if I would never get a prize for being Miss Congeniality, I didn’t deserve incorrigible.

I Prefer Not To.... That's Margaret Rose Kane's response to every activity she's asked to participate in at the summer camp to which she's been exiled while her parents are in Peru. So Margaret Rose is delighted when her beloved uncles rescue her from Camp Talequa, with its uptight camp director and cruel cabinmates, and bring her to stay with them at their wonderful house at 19 Schuyler Place.But Margaret Rose soon discovers that something is terribly wrong at 19 Schuyler Place. People in their newly gentrified neighborhood want to get rid of the three magnificent towers the uncles have spent forty-five years lovingly constructing of scrap metal and shards of glass and porcelain. Margaret Rose is outraged, and determined to strike a blow for art, for history, and for individuality...and no one is more surprised than Margaret Rose at the allies she finds for her mission.

I have the Watts Towers by me and have never been to see them. After this, I HAVE to go.

This book was great inside and out. The print was big and understandable. The story inside was hard to get the beginning but got Bette as you read on. The price was a steal. Definitely will be buying more products from here again.

This book was nominated for the Massachusetts Children's Book Award for the 2006-07 school year. The students in my class who read it, enjoyed it. It was an interesting story.

I am a huge fan of E L Konigsburg's books, however, writing that someone with Asperger's SYNDROME - not DISORDER is similar to a person with Down's syndrome or that a person with Asperger's wouldn't be relaxing against a car hood, they would be banging their head on it, is COMPLETELY false and irresponsible, not to mention highly insulting. I have Asperger's syndrome. I also have a Doctorate and a Mensa membership. I have never banged my head on a car hood, nor have I ever seen anyone else with Asperger's do so. Categorizing autistic tendencies is nearly impossible for even experts to do - the saying is that if you've met one person with autism...you've met ONE person with autism. I expected better and more consideration from this extremely intelligent and talented author. I and many people affected by autism, Downs syndrome, and other types of developmental disorders would appreciate the author removing mention of same in future editions. - Dr. Kristin von Walz

I know that you'd like me to tell you about this book, but I prefer not to...Or so I would say if my name was Margaret Rose Kane! However, it's not, so I'll indulge your curiosity! The book, as you may have guessed, centers on a very incorrigible young girl name Margaret Rose who, having refused to participate in many of the group activities offered by her summer camp and having been treated cruelly by the clique that inhabits her bungalow, is returned back to the home of her two Hungarian uncles by an irate camp director who thinks she's the queen of her own little domain. Margaret's unexpected arrival at her uncles' home, necessary due to her parent's summer trip to Peru, sets about a cascade of events that leads to a memorable summer. The uncles, who have spent much of their lives in America building beautiful metal clock towers in their backyard and decorating them with glimmering glass pendants, have been fighting a losing war against the destruction of the towers: a war they've hidden from Margaret. When she finally learns of the local homeowners association's determination to raze the structures in order to "raise property values" and contribute to the "historical redevelopment" of the neighborhood, Margaret is incensed and determined to prevent the tragedy at all costs. She recruits a varied cast of characters - including the son of her former camp director, on whom she has a bit of a crush, and a big, lovable dog named Tarufo - to aid in her rescue mission. Her attempt is fraught with many heart-breaking as well as hilarious moments and often feels doomed to failure. Margaret's spirit is strong and not one to break, even in the face of a force of firemen and angry city officials, but will it be enough to save the towers?

Although this book wasn't quite as fun as the other Konigsburg books that I enjoyed (I think I was spoiled by the delightful From The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler), it was a nice one to listen to with my parents during our weekly jaunts to the supermarket and the beach. Margaret is a bit of a brat, but she's a likable one whose spirit the reader can't help but admire. Her supporting cast of characters, including her adorable uncles and their dog, round off the book nicely. All in all, the book was a good read that teaches several basic truths including the importance of remaining true to oneself even in the face of cruelty and prejudice. I was disappointed with the ending but felt that it fit with the entire theme of the book and reinforced the theme that, though life isn't always perfect, we can still find beauty and meaning in it.
Margaret has always known she could do no wrong when it came to her great-uncles. Alex and Morris live in a small house in a neighborhood that used to be neighborly and then became run-down. Margaret has her own bedroom there and loves nothing better than to visit. She especially loves the backyard, divided into sections for gardening and for the towers. The towers are soaring sculptures of metal and glass which Alex and Morris have been building piece by piece for over forty years.

This summer, when Margaret's parents are in Peru, she fully expects her uncles to open their doors to her. Instead, she finds herself shipped off to camp, where her cabinmates bond together to make her life as miserable as possible. Margaret's self-determination allows her to survive their attacks until Uncle Alex comes to retrieve her.

Once back at the house, Margaret senses that something is strange between her uncles, and it doesn't take very long for her to figure out why she was sent to camp and why her uncles are particularly short-tempered. The towers are coming down. Complaints by neighbors who have bought property in the neighborhood as an investment, coupled with the city deciding the towers are unsafe, means that the life's work of Alex and Morris has been scheduled for destruction. Margaret's stubbornness serves her well as she begins a crusade to save the towers.

I really liked the quirky characters in this story; I particularly liked the way Alex and Morris related to each other, and the way they both doted on Margaret. I also liked how Margaret's camp experience was slowly explained over the course of the book.

I didn't like the role the cabinmates played at the end of the book; it seemed really unrealistic and contrived. Other than that, this was a very satisfactory book with a good ending.
