Book Description

The timeless classic and winner of the Newbery Medal

Jess Aarons' greatest ambition is to be the fastest runner in the fifth grade. He's been practicing all summer and can't wait to see his classmates' faces when he beats them all. But on the first day of school, a new kid, a new girl, boldly crosses over to the boys' side of the playground and outruns everyone.

That's not a very promising beginning for a friendship, but Jess and Leslie Burke become inseparable. It doesn't matter to Jess that Leslie dresses funny or that her family has a lot of money -- but no TV. Leslie has imagination. Together, they create Terabithia, a magical kingdom in the woods where they reign as king and queen, and their imaginations set the only limits. Then one morning a terrible tragedy occurs. Only when Jess is able to come to grips with this tragedy does he finally understand the strength and courage Leslie has given him.

    一個充滿想像力的鄰居,故事主人翁是剛好是相反個性,很互補的一對朋友感覺。
    朋友對自己有什麼樣的重大影響呢
    當好友遇到挫折時,自己會不會去鼓舞對方
    當好友成就不凡時,自己會不會真心為對方開心
    面對好友永恆的離去,自己會不會為他更堅強,更開闊視野
    有些事、有些人~當經過歲月的淬鍊後,更會懂的珍惜當下

    在電視上看到電影尋找夢奇地,因為看得有一搭沒一搭的,就把原著小說找出來完整看一遍。查了一下,原來就是青少年拇指系列的通往泰瑞比西亞的橋。
    電影的預告我還滿有印象的,當時看完覺得就是時下流行的奇幻作品,不過實際上根本不是這麼回事,這是一個探討青少年心靈成長的好故事啊~
    可是...看到青少年文庫就應該要有所警惕,想到小時候看紅色羊齒草的故鄉哭得唏哩嘩啦的,通往泰瑞比西亞的橋看到最後也是一把鼻涕一把眼淚,果然青少年心靈成長的故事不管何時看都很感人(拇指)~

    My thoughts

    This was a beautifully written book on friendship, imagination, and courage as both Jess and Leslie learn to take risks. I felt I got to know the characters well in a short amount of time.

    Bridge to Terabithia-尋找夢奇地

    ”A place just for us.”

      我會想看這書是受到電影的影響,原以為書會和電影一樣精采,但一樣精彩卻是著墨不同的地方。
      
      書中描寫一位剛升上五年級的小男孩,努力想成為跑步第一名。若只有跑步快,可以引領他進入夢奇地嗎?當然還需要另外一個人-Leslie Burke。她是那年的轉學生,愛幻想、愛冒險的女生。倒底夢奇地是一個怎樣的世界呢?又是如何創造出來的?
      "Bridge to Terabithia"嚴格來講並不是一個真正的奇幻文學,也沒有所謂的架空世界,夢奇地在其中所扮演的角色,不過是反應男主角和女主角內心的心境。在 ...continue

      書中描寫一位剛升上五年級的小男孩,努力想成為跑步第一名。若只有跑步快,可以引領他進入夢奇地嗎?當然還需要另外一個人-Leslie Burke。她是那年的轉學生,愛幻想、愛冒險的女生。倒底夢奇地是一個怎樣的世界呢?又是如何創造出來的?
      "Bridge to Terabithia"嚴格來講並不是一個真正的奇幻文學,也沒有所謂的架空世界,夢奇地在其中所扮演的角色,不過是反應男主角和女主角內心的心境。在主角受創時給與其力量扭轉現實的局勢,當主角心境轉變時,夢奇地又會有一番新面貌。但是這小說的結局有點黑暗,卻也有點光芒。Leslie因為過河的繩子斷掉,而死亡。但當時Jess卻正和美麗的女老師-Miss Edmunds在華盛頓遊玩,這不有點諷刺嗎?如果Jess當時在河岸旁,結局會不會改變?死神和天使同在一天出現,帶給人希望還是更大的折磨?
      於是夢奇地又再陷入黑暗,Jess不願接受Leslie已死的事實,還自責為何沒有沒有帶她一起去呢?天使沒有給Jess希望,反而是折磨。國王和王后都是國家的支柱,任一個倒塌,都將使國家陷入黑暗。
      一本小小的書,一則普通的小學生生活紀錄,卻讓我們看透人生的生死離別。可是給
    予小學生如此大的打擊,我卻覺得作者過於殘忍。不過是一場小意外,卻造成人命無法挽回。小學生就得要忍受和親友離別的痛苦,這究竟還是太殘忍了。但我想王后的精神永遠存在夢奇地,即使以成灰燼。而連接夢奇地的橋永遠不會斷的...

      筆者在閱讀泰瑞比西亞時,聯想到小的時候,總會和姊姊一起去建造一個屬 於彼此的秘密基地,裡面可以佈置任何自己喜歡的東西,是其他人無法進入的神 聖境地。朱大哥也同意道:「很多人都有一個屬於自己的世界,會全心全意投入 、沉浸其中;當別人無法理解時,有時還會被視為瘋子也不一定。」就像他,當 別人問及他的工作時,他就會回答他是教圍棋的老師,因為這是大家所可接受的 工作項目;但內心所想的是:“閱讀小說”才是他畢生的工作。也許,不論大人 或小孩,每人心中都有一塊美妙、卻不為人知的秘密基地,也就是最魔力無窮的 -泰瑞比西亞王國。
