Shel Silverstein ↠ The Giving Tree mobi
At her apples swing from her branches or slide down her trunkand the tree was happy But as the boy grew older he began to want from the tree and the tree gave and gave and gaveThis is a tender story touched with sadnes Yes the boy is a selfish bastard who doesn't deserve the love and generosity he gets time and again Anyone who read this book as a child is well aware of this factNonetheless I'm shocked to see how many disliked it My only thought is that many readers allow their hatred for the boy to be confused with hatred for the book Does the book condone the boy's behavior or simply seek to tell a narrative? Does the uality of a book suffer when the moral uality of its characters flags?It is the job of narrative to relate a story It is the job of a classic to relate a timeless story to which countless readers of any age can relate So whence the hatred? Is it because so many readers have known people who have taken and taken with such unrelenting fervor that they then displace this hatred onto a book that merely tells a story so fundamental it can't help but arouse feelings in any human who reads it?Silverstein in my opinion reached his peak with this book so simple and so pure and timeless than any book I can think of at the moment

Or are you the sneak out in the middle of the night an' steal all my shit tree?
