The View From Saturday is one of my favorite books. Telling the same story through several different perspectives E.L. Konigsburg spins a fabulous tale of friendship, bravery, and finding your true self. 10+

I felt like I was doing a puzzle while reading this book. It isn't in chronological order which makes it a little confusing, but that adds to the deeper meaning of the story. E. L. Konigsburg illustrates many deep themes in this story and urges you to dig deeper. This book isn't for people who like a fast plot, but is a good read if you just want to slow down. Since it is a little confusing I would recommend this book for ages 10 and up.

Like all of E.L. Konigsburg's books, I think it has a deep understanding of feeling. It also feels very natural. Love!

I really liked how the characters stories interwind, even before they become friends, a good read. I've seen a lot of people call it boring. It is anything but.

Four grade 6 students make up an A team to try out for the State championship Quiz Bowl. This book is quirky, funny, intelligent, and above all enjoyable.

This book was incredible. However, I think that this book should be read by kids 11 years or older because it has some sophisticated meanings and is not exactly in chronological order.

Not at all what I expected but good read.

I liked how all the characters met. I also feel like i was reading a puzzle, the stories came and fitted all together.
