The Good Children book. The characters development was among the best I’ve read. A superb story of death, love and deception. The flow of the story was exceptional and there wasn’t a lull in any point of the book and though The Good Children was a work of fiction, somehow it felt like the work of personal experience.

I had read and enjoyed several of Kate Wilhelm's excellent science fiction stories before I picked up "The Good Children," a novel that is not science-fiction. I won't attempt to summarize the plot of this book, because that would destroy the reader's anticipation of what lies around the next corner. Let's just say that this is the story of a highly unusual family, with the focus on the four children and the staggering problems that are unexpectedly thrust on them. I found it impossible to predict the outcome of any of the page-turner crises. This first-rate novel is an easy, fast, and thoroughly engrossing read.

Absolutely marvelous--couldn't put it down.

Agantrius
of all her books this is the best. kate wilhelm has a series with a father and daughter legal team but this is not one of them. when the ending came i was so surprised but wonderfully so.

Read it as a teenager and enjoyed it, re-read it as an adult and loved it even more. One of the few books that stuck out from my younger years.

Was totally unexpected story line but love how it was but together. Great book!

I bought this book because of all the stellar reviews, but sorry to say I was a little disappointed. The whole first half of the book could be found right on the back cover, that's not a 5 star rating. The author really failed to develop the heroin's love interest, and some other touched upon ideas. Don't get me wrong it wasn't a bad book, it was average, and at times perhaps juvenile.

Four young children and their parents buy their first home. Then daddy dies but leaves a trust. Mommy dies and the 4 children are forced to hide this fact so they won't go to foster care. They live on the trust and later the two oldest move away/attend college and things unwind. The oldest children are greedy/weak and one wants to sell the house and the other weakly agrees. They stage a mock mommy leaving plan and nothing changes except a part time care taker is hired by the estate to look after the 2 youngest children (one is 16) and when ready they can sell the house. The two oldest have drifted away and really don't care about the youngest 2 and are only worried a bit about mommy's body being discovered in the back yard if the house is sold. The youngest says he will tell what happened to mommy if they sell and later he is committed to a mental ward. This book is an emotional roller coaster. All's well that ends well even if this family essentially breaks up because new people are added to the youngest two children's lives who do care deeply what happens to them and the house and their mommy secret is safe. The only suggestion to this book would be to come outright and say which of the 2 boys was telling the truth about what really killed mommy.

After spending their whole live on the move, the McNair family has finally settled down in an Oregon cabin and life is good--until both parents die. Afraid of being split apart in foster care, the four McNair children try to hold their family together themselves, but they are haunted by the memory of their mother. The Good Children has an intriguing, if cliché, premise, and it's easy to consume, but the writing is unremarkable and the book is entirely immemorable. There's no harm in reading it but don't go out of your way. Not recommended.

The premise of a family of orphaned children opens the door to guilty-pleasure tropes: us against the world, the desert island paradise. The Good Children delves immediately into both, and the children's struggles to remain safely isolated and rebuild their family create an interesting narrative. They run into enough difficulties to keep the reader engaged, and there's enough sentimentality--at least at the beginning--to make the story seem meaningful. Wilhelm is not a gifted or artistic writer (in this book, at least), but she is experienced; her prose moves swiftly and the book is a quick, simple read.

Unfortunately, while premise is interesting and the prose moves swiftly, neither is particularly good. Wilhelm never takes her premise to an extreme, and so it never becomes realistically difficult or, like other examples of similar premises (such as Flowers in the Attic), enjoyable enough to be a guilty pleasure. The characters become increasingly distant and unsympathetic, and the emotional appeal of the novel all but disappears. The bland prose convey the story well enough, but it's entirely unremarkable; the book reads so quickly that it feels insubstantial. The mother's lingering presence is an interesting twist, but it's never fully developed. All told, the premise is interesting and the story is readable, but The Good Children is unremarkable and forgettable. It's not bad for a weekend of mindless reading, but don't go out of your way to get it. There are more interesting and more worthwhile books out there.
