    "This book kept me interested from start to finish! I actually read this after seeing the movie, which is also great, but the book was much better. I like how it shows Charlie's struggle to become smart, and there are many touching moments in this book."

    "An interesting book about a hero who takes action in creative and subtle ways. Takes place during the french revolution and stays accurate to the history. The book starts slow but it is completely worth sticking through."

    "This book really has nothing to do with a flower, but it does have flower in the title. The book actually has a lot of great reviews and appears to be an interesting story to read. The cover of the book is a little weird and dull."

    "Dandelion Wine was a tasty book. I love Ray Bradbury's writing style, and I have long been interested in his science-fiction work. He wrote a couple books like this, in which the stories are presented in a sort of collection, and then there is an overriding connection between them. I don't know many books with flowers in the title, nor do I know if the Dandelion is actually considered a flower. I always thought that the Dandelion was a weed. However this is a fun read by a master author."

    "Translation isn't good. Dialogue is tacky, historicity is spotty. The story arc is interesting, but the details need refining. I would recommend trying out a different book."

    "I went out on a limb with this one, as it is not heavily reviewed. I have this thing, where if the book has a flower name in the title, I must read it if not own it. I purchased this one, with a little hesitation, as it just didn't speak to me from the cover, and the lack of reviews left me little hope. I read it, but struggled to get into that cover-to-cover mode. "
