Probably the greatest book ever written by both man and child woman and other writing entity Johnny Tremain tells the story of a young genius who becomes a silversmith and burns the crappin' hell out of his hand He's always embarrassed by his sort of melty hand and keeps it in his pockets or in his mother's pies and pie type dishes One day he meets a girl named Cilla Priscilla for long who loves him despite for his sick melt hand Paul Bunyan or John Tubbers or whichever is the name of that early revolutionary explorer comes along riding on his horse one day screaming about lobsters in coats and what not alerting the town Johnny Tremain sees the opportunity to finally use the sick curse God put on him by melting his hand to scare andor kill the lobster coats At this point Cilla is ridiculously in love with him and they kiss and he promises to make America into something great where even one handed pony tailed dainty's like himself can work for a local paper or some other mid level position at some kind of printing house Cilla does everything in her power not to totally melt from her obsessive love for Johnny not unlike the way his hand melted in the beginning of the story to foreshadow this supreme moment with Priscilla Cilla After a long juvenile make out session Johnny goes after the red lobster people waving his sickly paw around yelling something about a tea party or a cherry tree until the lobster guys are so mind crapped that they shoot themselves to death Always being an opportunist John Tubbers or Wally Revere or whoever his name was then came along and took credit for killing everyone and even said he invented tea and teeth and apples and that Cilla was his wife and all other sorts of new America type bulltit lies most of which none of the towns people believed Anyhow long story short Johnny got his job back at the paper and married Cilla cause she was pregnant or something which was not totally unusual at this time for a fourteen year old girl The book pretty much stops there except for a short epilogue about that crazy horse riding Paulie Reverendton talking about how he ended up in some famous magazine cause some of his lying had paid off Then he became the president for a while until he was assisinated by Johnny Tremain An almost forgotten part of the book In any case the book sprays out an unweilding amount of boy drama and hot girl sort of descriptions about the towns folk to the point that any nine to nineteen year old would easily form a wicked boy crush on both Johnny Tubbers and Cilla the latter being a girl crush Read it You won't be dissapointedAdam Nee wah I was born rich but I grew up poor wah I burned my hand How in the world did I only give this three stars before? This book was pretty much perfect I have recently learned that this author was my great grandmother's college roommate My desire to reread has very much intensified Great story about the Revolutionary War from the perspective of a silver smith Many famous names from that time are in the story like John Hancock and Sam Adams Johnny is an apprentice as a silver smith until an unfortunate accident maims his hands He then becomes a newspaper courier when he gathers information for the Rebels The Redcoats are trying to keep the people in line This leads up to the first battle in the warThere is one moment in the story I found very disturbing Johnny slaps his friend who is a girl for something she says in front of a room of people It's so hard that she falls down Everyone else in the room simply laughs at her and the situation It was very abusive and horrible Johnny was a great character until that scene I rated it high for the great portrayal of the time period but that scene really bothered me I guess that kind of thing did happen in that time period The past can be fraught with horrorI did enjoy this story It is an interesting time in the states and our history People were brave harsh and rash It really is amazing it has worked as well as it has So glad I finally read this I know this is perceived as being a kid's book but I think that it is a story any adult would enjoy Johnny Tremain takes place in pre revolutionary Boston and is about a prideful but slowly improving boy who finds himself in the center of the independence fervor Although I obviously cannot be sure of how accurate the descriptions are I appreciated the book for doing such a great job at taking me back to the colonial era of American history As Johnny Tremain struggled with adversity his decisions and his relationships with those around him all the while inviting us into this exciting time I could not help but become emotionally attached to his character and his story I flat out loved this bookIf anyone who reads this review is a middle school teacher or even a high school teacher I highly recommend that you assign this book to your students Not only is it an exciting way to get a view into an essential period of America's history but uses a relatively high level of language for being dubbed a children's book This was an amazing book Beautiful powerful heartbreaking healing inspiring courageous sweet and so much It's not my favorite historical fiction or Revolutionary War book and not uite as amazing as the best I've read but it comes incredibly close It was so wonderful It was very very well written and incredibly powerful in characterization plot writing style historical accuracy setting and theme I really really love Johnny For so many reasons He's a fabulous character and protagonist I was eager to experience his character arc since he started out so proud and selfish and angry And though I knew it would be good it still blew me away It was wonderful to watch him grow and heal A paragraph in a review can't sum up his wonderful mix of determination and courage tenderness and heart laughter and anger bitterness and sweetness I felt each emotion along with him from joy and victory to despair and shame to horror and grief I was completely caught up in his story his adventures his hopes and defeats And his character arc was fabulous in all its fascinating well developed threads and facets view spoilerIn addition to the parts relating to his inner healing I loved seeing him realize he didn't want the riches and depravity of the Lyte family hide spoiler I hated this book if u read this book you will become boring and oldthis book pulls you into a wrinkled old time of so called action i could havefound action by going to a retirement home and watching the 900 year old people play bingo i of course was forced against my will to read thisotherwise i wouldnt go spitting distance of it if you enjoyed this book mrflegar then you are boring old do not read this thing it's a plaguesave yourselves “‘That a man can stand up’ — as simple as that And the strange new sun rising in the west A sun that was to illumine a world to come”My favorite book of all time If I were a children's book writer this is exactly the kind of book I'd love to write It has mystery suspense romance history coming of age overcoming personal and physical problems; gosh it has it allI've always wanted to read this book just never got around to it till now If your child is studying Revolutionary War times in history this would be a great literary supplement to that history lesson It brings the history of that time to lifeIncluding but not limited to One if by land two if by sea Paul Revere John Hancock Lexington and Concord Minute Men Boston Tea Partyand All seen through the eyes of our fourteen year old hero JohnnyI highly recommend this book Definetly not the greatest book ever written Pretty terrible actually Didn't like it at all Expected it to be better and i'm very dissapointed It was very hard to understand what was going on im each chapter and I would not recommend this book to anyone
