    5. Thunder from the Sea is an inspiring book about animal instincts and at the end of the book, human kindness Of course, I really enjoyed this book It is seriously the perfect blend of realistic fiction and fiction The fact that Thunder came from the sea is hard to believe, but Tom Campbell, the protagonist, coming from an orphanage to live with people he just meets, go out fishing and come home with a dog they picked up in a storm That is strange to say the least That is probably the most fiction [...]

    7. So far I think that Tom has caused a lot of problems with the Bosworths Bert stole Thunder, Thunder is a dog that Tom found durring a stormy fishing trip He named him Thunder because he found him durring a thunder storm Amos, Bert s father wants the dog real bad for some reason It is like Bert controls his father because Bert wined to get Thunder and then Amos got real mad I think Bert is spoiled by his dad I predict that Bert is so spoiled that it will get him in trouble.

    8. This is the sort of book that makes me think back to Lassie Come Home and other dog books from 50 100 years ago A story with just enough adventure, there the dog is a true hero and a true member of the family Makes me want to go hug my own dog I was delighted to find this story and will definitely be looking for other dog books by this author.

    12. I found it interesting to contrast this with some of the horse books I ve read lately The horse books seem to focus on the growth of the relationship between the horse and the child This did not do that at all It was the story of an orphan boy trying to become part of a family He rescues a dog who also becomes a member of the clan The dog is a hero and a source of solace for the insecure boy The relationships that are explored are those of the family and the community A very interesting look at [...]

    13. The way of love and hopeThis book can teach you a lot about finding a place in this world, and finding the bright side to the worst situations I actually learned a little bit of science in this book along with geography This book is kinda the last thing I have from someone who was my family when I didn t have one.

    14. Recommended by a student as her favorite dog book I ve shed enough tears over dying dog books in my life, so now I only read books about dogs if they are still alive at the end Spoiler alert I really enjoyed this book and shed zero dead dog tears.

    15. Orphan goes to live with a couple on a small self sufficient island Finds a dog who saves family and community many times He worries about whether their new home is permanent and a handful of potential obstacles and circumstances threaten that Ultimately just a very happy story Sorry if thats a spoiler.Author could improve on her character expression The kid was anxious about his future and reflective of his past but the telling sort of just explained it instead of showing it.

    19. Thunder from the Sea by Joan Hiatt Harlow is a touching historical fiction book about a boy, a dog, and a family who will capture your heart Tom is a character that I could really connect with, and I feel as if I know him I felt sad for him that he was an orphan, and I worried about what would become of both he and Thunder This is an excellent book for people of all ages, and I think kids in fourth through eighth grade will especially relate to Tom and Thunder The book gave me a peek at what lif [...]

    23. Thunder From the Sea was a thoroughly enjoyable read about a Newfoundland dog Though it is historical fiction, it is based on some actual events that took place in New Foundland in the 1920s The book is geared toward a 5th 8th grade audience, but I was captivated by the story as an adult Thunder, the giant of a dog in the story, applies the special abilities inherent in man s best friend to protect the people in his family and others on his island If only we would listen to the warnings provided [...]

    24. Well, my aunt actually reccomended this to me, so I started reading it The plot of this story is that there s a young boy with no family, but he really wishes he could have a dog Then, he has to go work on a ship and he finds a dog there, that he names Thunder My favorite quote in the whole story would be The rain only falls in places that need it, not the ones that crave it This authors unique choice of words really inspired me to get a dog because it shows that it really brings a family close [...]

    25. Orphaned Tom is adopted by a childless couple living on a remote island off the coast of Newfoundland When he finds a puppy struggling in the water and rescues him, the two become best friends But what if the original owner comes forward Tom can t bear the thought of giving up his Thunder This is a great old fashioned story with adventure and peril too Many of the details are based on real life incidents and history, so it might motivate kids to do research too Not sure it s a good fit for book [...]

    26. I was very excited to find a book that features a Newfoundland dog as we just got a Newfoundland puppy The author weaves folk lore and stories from various parts of the world plenty from Newfoundland to create an old fashioned feel to the book Although this was well done, I think that this book would not appeal to middle school students unless they were unique souls who enjoyed a slower moving, old fashioned story It was not tremendously well written and the characters were not very well develop [...]

    27. I feel that this book was extremely childish and quite boring Every single chapter something was wrong or something terrible was happening either to Thunder or Tom Because of that I stopped caring about the characters in general, if something were to happen like Tom got into a fight I simply would shrug and move on with my life I expected from Harlow Maybe I would ve liked it better if I were a little younger But not now for sure

    28. I now have the paperback edition of this bookI have read this book recently I LOVE the book and the meaning of this book If I could give this a one hundred star rating, I would A pawfect book about dogs I very highly recommend this to children, teenagers, and adults alike So, if you are looking for a book you ll love and treasure, or if you want a book about dogs, then you are sure to love Thunder From The Sea

    29. This is a great little book Kind of like a Jack Russell terrier, a big dog in a little dogs body This is a big book in betwixt a little books covers.It is thoroughly enjoyable It seems like of a young person s book and I am certainly not a young person, but I think the adults need to read this one, to regain the innocence and excitement and openness of a child.Like in Ruth s review below, I will be reading this again At least once
