I enjoyed reading this with my daughter She loved it too. Never having read the original, I can t compare well but this has to be a fantastic retelling My 11 year old and I read this together and we both loved it The overall metaphor provided great discussion. [Download E-pub] ♖ Pilgrims Progress ♗ Originally Written At A Jail Cell Desk In , John Bunyan S Pilgrim S Progress Quickly Grew In Popularity Second Only To The Bible Itself, And It Has Seen Countless Editions And Printings Over The Years Gary Schmidt Has Now Recaptured This Story Of Everyman S Quest For Life In Contemporary Language For A New Generation Of Readers This Volume Offers A Superb Original Retelling Of Bunyan S Beloved Classic, Masterfully Illustrated With Fifty Dramatic Watercolors By Barry Moser Here Again Is The Tale Of Christian S Spiritual Journey From The City Of Destruction To The Heavenly Palaces, Including The Pitfalls And Graces That Threaten And Fortify His Epic Pilgrimage Matching Bunyan S Flare For Storytelling And Vivid Imagery, Gary Schmidt S New Narrative Also Echoes The Best Of Writers Like Dante, Sir Thomas Browne, E M Forster, J R R Tolkien, And Nathaniel Hawthorne Barry Moser S Illustrations Bring Bunyan S Unforgettable Characters And Landscapes To Life In Fresh Ways While Christian Himself Is Interpreted As A Contemporary Figure, Moser Portrays The Story S Characters Within Different Historical Eras, Powerfully Enhancing Their Symbolic Meanings For Today S Readers While Also Showing Their Common Tie To Humankind Throughout The Ages Even After Three Centuries, This Odyssey Of Faith And Human Perseverance Still Appeals To A Wide Audience This New Retelling Of Pilgrim S Progress Will Stand Repeated Readings As It Speaks To The Experiences And Stirs The Imaginations Of Both Young And Old The story is slightly modified from the original here but is still outstanding The only complaint I have is a slightly petty one when I was little and innocently picked this book up, the illustrations terrified the heck out of me The painting of Apollyon in particular was so frightening that I had nightmares for days after SoI don t know that I would recommend using this one with younger children, despite the illustrations The illustrations are the scary part xD Fantastic Excellent retelling my Schmidt The illustrations were beautifully done. Gary Schmidt retelling this classic story of one person s journey to heaven And Schmidt s words are given evenlife by Barry Moser s illustrations that will fill the reader with wonder It s a great read for any Christian and anybody of faith. Pilgrims progress is one of those classics that I can t seem to love no matter how hard I try. The best 2 hr Read ever All should read this historic masterpiece. Allegories seem pedantic today However, I m sure I d prefer Schmidt s version to the original due to the books illustrations and lack of King James English For young adults or children to appreciate it, it would help to first instruct about what an allegory is Otherwise the literally wandering tale will seem very peculiar to people used to today s fiction. Reading this book, remind me that we re a pilgrim in this world we walk in our path and meet many obstacles and temptations in life we will certainly meet our creator one day, at the end of the journey.I actually prefer the adaptation, writing in Indonesian, Perjalanan Seorang Musafir.I read it when I was in Junior high and I love it The comic and the adaptation is good.Reading the book all over again is really something As what I thought back then was obviously different, as I grow up But the impression I had is still the same.
