Tuck EverlastingTuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Tuck Everlasting was chosen for a book club's book this month. I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I have never read this before, and I did enjoy it. It was certainly unique, but I never truly felt satisfied reading it. The characters never fully came alive to me. I felt there was so much left to learn about them, especially Winnie after the Tucks left. I wanted to know how she came to her final decision, without merely being told by Tuck's discovery. The end left me feeling robbed. But I enjoyed the concept of the fountain of youth, and the idea of those who unwittingly had drunk from it found it a curse rather than a blessing.
