I thought The View From Saturday by E.L. Koningsburg was a very good book. I liked how the story changed from flashbacks, to present, and back to flashbacks. I also enjoyed the kind of abrupt way things were introduced. The book was interesting, but the way the children talked, with 'do not' instead of don't and 'I am' instead of I'm, seemed unreal. Without this, it would have been an excellent book. I liked the vagueness but knowing the construction of the plot. I would suggest this book to my friends.
