Comments Amy's Eyes

  • Amy

    Oh, oh, oh, what a lovely, sad, wonderful little book. Except it is not really little at all. It's thick, a glorious 437 pages, full of adventure, fantasy, mystery, and Mother Goose. C.S. Lewis once said, "A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest."Amy's Eyesproves this quote to be true. A children's book, yes, but one suitable and entertaining enough for any age.Amy's Eyesby Richard Kennedy begins with a little baby girl, named Amy, [...]

  • Laura

    This is my absolute all time favorite book ever. And that's saying something, because I really really like a lot of books. But this is one of the few that I have read over and over and is falling apart.

  • Cheryl

    I'll let Kennedy speak for himself:"It is a dangerous place, the open sea, and a sailor holds to every spirit-raising indulgence or grace he can find and believe in. Never mind his infidelity when he is ashore, his disgraceful and fallen state. It is a weekday always in port, and Sunday always at sea.""Why--devil chase it man--that's a complicated book. Ye can make it mean just about anything ye want to. And he just sticks his own meaning to it. That don't seem right to me. Ye take the book for [...]

  • Renate

    A weird, awesome, sprawling, children's epic about an intelligent, sentient doll who's on a quest to retrieve her stolen eyes that have been pitched to the bottom of the sea - and the sailor who loves her. I think. I don't really remember, but it definitely blew my mind when I was 9 or 10.

  • Toni

    My Dad gave this book to me a long, long time ago and even today I can vividly recall the wonder and excitement of reading this touching story. So well written, so rich and imagintive. One of my all time favorites.

  • Amanda Wige

    Not many have read it but it is a wonderful book. My 4th grade teacher read it to me. I loved it so much I h out and was so proud when I finished all 800 some pages. Very creative and unique story.

  • Caroline Elias

    I love the 1500 page first edition first printing way better than the 400 page chop and drop;that version is an insult to the book. I only saw this version once when I was 10 during a library summer reading program. The book just vanished after that I remember it had a picture of the ship on the front and a whole bunch of medals and awards. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down I literally read nonstop from 10 am the morning I checked it out till 10 am the next day. I remember the sea [...]

  • Shelby

    I read this book when I was a child. It was one of the first books I ever read by myself and I remember it made me cry. It was then I realized that books could take you on incredible journeys and I have been an avid reader ever since. I'm getting ready to read it again and I'm pretty excited to see if I still like it as an adult.

  • Kathy

    Several images from this book stuck with me and one is the reason for the title. After finding this book on a list of odd children's books, I was curious to find out why. It's an intriguing story and definitely holds your interest. Kind of what would happen if Sarah Crewe was not only rescued from her attic, but taken on a sea adventure by a sea captain doll.

  • Rebecca Heneghan

    I read this because a friend said it was her favorite book from childhood and my daughter is reading it too. You forget how magical children's literature is and how fun it can be to get swept up into a magical world. I enjoyed this and wish that I red it as a kid but am really enjoying sharing it with my daughter.

  • Katrina

    One of my teachers in elementary school read this to us as a class. I remember being riveted. I had been wanting to re-read it for a couple years, so when I happened to see it at the library, I snatched it up. And I think I enjoyed it almost as much this time around. Wyatt even enjoyed the parts that I read aloud to him, and he is a hyperactive 3 year old.

  • Jina McEnany

    I stumbled upon this book as a young teen, while shopping with my mom at a thrift store. Somehow it caught my eye and I bought it. I ended up loving it, though I'm not certain why. I often remember parts of it with great fondness. It's one I'll pass down to my daughter someday.

  • Chandra

    This is one of the best books I have ever read. You'll be laughing on minute and crying the next. I've read it at least once a year since my sixth grade English teacher read it to the class. So much fun. 22 years later and I still LOVE it!

  • Silly Sadly

    Loss, longing, acceptance, betrayal and more. Mother Goose would've been proud to see how the characters in her story were brought to life. Amy, an orphan was brought to an orphanage to stay while her father went to sea, and then never came back. Like in The Velveteen Rabbit the love of the girl helps to bring to life the ships captain doll that she spent so many hours reading to. Then covering their adventures in escaping the orphanage and their adventures at sea this is one of my favorite book [...]

  • Alice

    I discovered this book in my middle school library in the seventh grade and fell absolutely in love with it. Now, 22 years later, I still get chills thinking about it. It was probably one of the first times I really considered what it meant to be alive, and how (for me, anyway) books played such a role in creating that life.

  • Amy

    Childhood favourite. Good adventure story filled with interesting events and characters.

  • Luscinnia

    Eigentlich ist das ja ein Jugendbuch, aber das muss einen ja nicht davon abhalten, es trotzdem zu lesen. Ich gebe zu, dass ich nicht immer alles genau verstanden habe, weil es dann doch alles so sehr sonderbar wirkte und eher wie in einem skurrilen, verwirrenden Traum war, als eine erzählte Geschichte, aber dabei geht es um relativ wenige Abschnitte.Der Rest des Buches ist dafür umso besser und ich schwärme insgeheim ja ein bißchen für den Kapitän. Ich nehme es Richard Kennedy übel, wie e [...]

  • Tasia

    This was beautifully written, with such a classic sense to it. I really feel like this is something special… and yet the ending just leaves me feeling unsatisfied.(view spoiler)[The Captain's death, the frog's death, just. None of it felt as if the journey was worth it. Sure, Amy has her father back, and Miss Eclair has revealed herself, but at what cost did everything come? The Captain's dead, and none of it feels right.But, maybe that's the point-- that gold and the desire for adventure had [...]

  • Lise

    An article on tor (about toys that come to life) reminded me that I have this book in my collection and it's amazing. Orphan Amy's love for her sailor doll brings him to life, but neglect turns Amy into a doll. The sailor and Amy take to the sea with a crew of other former toys, and go on a very typical pirate-y adventure--yet one where every step resonates with symbolism and meaning. This is a book that can be read on so many levels, good for children and adults, from the very first line: "Amy' [...]

  • Anastasia

    Amy's Eyes is a book I remember reading over and over when I was younger. It's the story of a girl left at the door of an orphanage with only a sailor doll for company, and as she confides her life to that doll the doll comes to lifewith a few consequences for Amy. It's magical storytelling without most of the traditional fantasy elements. There's also a bit of adventure, some sailing, and quite a lot of talking to dolls.

  • Amy Gourley

    I will read any book about dolls! Amy has a sailor doll that comes to life and then Amy becomes a doll herself. They sail the world with Mother Goose animal dolls come to life to find a golden treasure. I didn't like this book as much as I thought I might have. Some parts were boring and slow, especially some nautical parts. It got better towards the end. Maybe I would have liked this better if I read this when I was younger.

  • Anna

    This book made my life a better place. In the fifth grade I was very lonely. I didn't really have anyone to play with. Every morning before I when to school my grandma would read this book to me. I loved how funny it was, how creative. It made no sense! I can still hear my grandma howling with laughter as she read it! Everyone should read this book!

  • Suzanne

    I read this book when I was around 13. I wasn't much of a reader yet and was intimidated by its size, but it drew me in and held my attention to the end. I enjoyed it very much even though I remember thinking it was a bit strange. I really need to find a copy and read it again!

  • Kylene

    One of my favorite books from childhood. Sure the storyline is a bit weied, but it's definitely unique I bought it again as an adult for my persnal collection and had a hard time finding it. Had to buy it used because it's not being sold new anymore.

  • Lisa Berg

    This is my favorite book of all time. It is the only book I have ever reread and will continue to reread for the rest of my life. It may be a child's book but it is full of magic and wonder and reality all swirled into a perfect place for your brain to go on vacation and just be happy.

  • Zahara

    On a trip to Costa Ricca with my mother and sisters, we read this book. We all fell in love with it and at least have several copies now. Its not just for children and even now I end up reading it at least once a year.

  • Jess

    I haven't re-read this book as an adult yet. I suppose that is primarily because I remember it as such an amazing experience as a child. Though not listed among the usual children's classics, this book absolutely captivated me, and I recommend it to everyone with young daughters.

  • Henning

    Of all books I read as young, this one stands out in my memory! I fondly remember spending several weeks of a summer, sprawled on a blanket in the shade under a tree in the yard reading this wonderful and mystical tale of a orphan girl who has a doll which becomes captain of a ship.

  • Sps

    Grand adventure, complete with stuffed animals come alive, pirates, gold treasure, an orphanage, an albatross, Bible quotations, "Greensleeves," poop decks, and more. One of NS's Baker Dem School favorites.

  • Meagan

    I can still recall the scene where Amy's Eyes are cut off by her now human doll and they use them to see what is going on in the sea. I read this book, had to have been when I was in elementary school and it was WAY over my reading level. But it was book that I truly enjoyed and often think about.
