    One thought on “Miss Billy

    1. Victoria Minks on said:

      Oh, my! SO funny. At first, Billy was just a little bit exasperating, and I felt rather sorry for the Strata. However, as you get to know her, and see more of her, and as she matures, you grow to like her very much--just like the three brothers did, I suspect. ;) While William is who Billy is named after, I actually liked Bertram best, then Cyril--and then William. But they are all great. :) Kate is frustrating, but she's meant to be, and it turns out all right in the end. I laugh easily with bo [...]

      Kisah klasik memang selalu indah. :)It is a pleasant, enjoyable novel and has a nice writing style.

    3. Becky on said:

      Miss Billy (1911) is a pleasant romance by Eleanor H. Porter, an author perhaps better known for her children's novel Pollyanna (1913). Billy becomes an orphan around the age of eighteen. She has no living relatives, but she still needs a family, wants a family. She decides to write one of her father's college friends, a friend she was named after. Her name *is* Billy. Her namesake, William Henshaw, is living with his two younger brothers, Cyril and Bertram. (Also making up the household is Pete [...]

      Fun read. An orphan girl goes to live with three men. Who will she marry?

    5. Judy on said:

      This book belonged to my mother but somehow I didn't get around to reading it until now. Anyone who likes Pollyanna will like this book, too. Written by the same author, the story starts with an optimistic 18 year old girl who descends on a staid trio of brothers. It's wholesome, upbeat, and plain fun. (Of course, Billy, is talented, beautiful, and pure-of-heart.)I knew I would enjoy this story from page 9 when one of the brothers is introduced:But really to know William, you must know his rooms [...]

    6. Beth Withers on said:

      This is a very sweet story, published in 1911. I have the three Miss BIlly books that were at my grandmother's house. The inscription in this one is dated 1915. I expected an innocent story that would end well, and that's what I got. I read the book in a short time because it was interesting and different from books published today, almost child-like in its innocence. It was like looking back in time. Miss Billy starts as an orphan and ends up a bride-to-be to the right person, and all that come [...]

    7. Sarah TheAromaofBooks on said:

      A nice little story, but lacking any real depth/character development. The story felt rather choppy at times. Still, a pleasant bit of reading, and I'm looking forward to continuing with the sequel to see what happens next.

      The description given of this book is incorrect - it actually applies to the 2nd book in the series "Miss Billy's Decision". In this book, the newly orphaned 18 year old 'Billy' comes to live with the person for whom she is named. But, he doesn't know of her existence, and of course, assumes that Billy is a boy. His life and that of his two brothers is pleasently turned upside down.Originally published in 1914.I read the electronic version.

    10. Kathleen on said:

      Parts of this book were similar to Anne of Green Gables and Emma.

    11. Sulin on said:

      Mmm, gak jelek, lumayan bagus dan aku suka, tapi biasa aja plotnya :DHal yang aku suka dari cerita romansa klasik abad pertengahan adalah poin-poinnya selalu mengena dan bikin baper tanpa tokoh utama wanitanya harus berbuat hal-hal idiot dan sok lemah seperti cerita roman masa kini.Layaknya buku asik, buku ini tidak menyajikan sisi galau si wanita secara berlebihan, semua natural, kasual, cenderung keren dan berwibawa dan Miss Billy understand how to behave very well level akut. Bukan cuma dia, [...]

    13. ToriDe on said:

      This book is very enjoyable; it has a nice writing style, diverse characters, and the pacing is quick enough where I was reading it like mad. The misunderstandings, for once, were well-placed, and actually added spice to the story. I'm not too big on love triangles or whatnot, but all the characters were nice sorts, so ultimately it was fun to see how they all interacted. Honestly, if you've lived in a house with three unrelated, unmarried men I can see this happening.Which cause me to bring up [...]

    14. Sita on said:

      Tertarik baca buku ini karena menurut mba Ifa ceritanya ringan, romantis, lucu. Setelah dibaca memang benar ini chick-lit jadul. Menarik betapa kisah yang terjadi beberapa puluh tahun yang lalu masih relevan hingga kini. Tentu ada beberapa kelebay-an seperti salah duga yang berlama-lama, tapi mungkin disinilah daya tarik buku klasik ini. Sikap mereka yang masih sopan dan lurus, refreshing ketimbang chick-lit masa kini. Kadang2 cape juga baca bobo2an kiri kanan. Juga yang membuat saya sangat meni [...]

    15. Jane Mcneil on said:

      Its an eye opening account albeit fictionalized of white society in Boston in 1914. In the beginning of the book, Porter's main character, Billy, depends on the kindness of strangers as she forces herself in her orphaned status on three bachelor brothers living together in their bubble of a world they like to call their Strata. Midway thru Billy uncharacteristically of the era focuses on her career, independence, and altruism. Then, oddly, in a sudden turn of events, she changes her position due [...]

      I first read this a decade ago (give or take a bit) and remembered it very fondly. I was suprised to see so few downloads when I pulled up the trilogy on project gutenberg but thought I'd indulge in a little nostalic reading over the holidays.Anyhow, I loved the first few chapters but after Billy leaves the Strata I was bored. It was not nearly as good as I remembered. I probably should have abandoned ship but I hate giving up on books and these are quick reads anyway.If you've read other books [...]

    17. Zeta T. on said:

      So, similar to "Pollyanna Grows Up", there was an awful lot of getting everyone mixed up as to who loved who or what went where and mis-communication abounding in everyone so often that one wondered if any of the resolutions were truly resolved. I wanted to hear more about Miss Billy hanging out with her guests and what not. And what happened to Spunk, anyway? All the drama was so that I was waiting for Grahame Chapman to show up in his military uniform and announce "No, everyone stop. This has [...]

    18. Rahmadiyanti on said:

      Sejak jatuh cinta pada "Pollyanna", penasaran dengan karya Eleanor H. Porter yang lain. Dan "nemu" yang ini! Bisa dibilang novel ini perpaduan Pollyanna, Anne of Green Gables, dan Eight Cousins, dengan tokoh yang lebih dewasa--saat cerita pertama dimulai (ada 3 buku; Miss Billy, Miss Billy Desicion, dan Miss Billy Married). Formula anak perempuan yang ditinggal orangtua sepertinya sangat ngetrend pada awal abad 20 :D. Meski temanya mirip, tapi dalam penulisannya ada kekhasan masing-masing."Miss [...]

    19. Jessie on said:

      From the author of Pollyanna, "Miss Billy" is about a young girl with an unusual namea name that causes a bit of confusion.Though Pollyanna is the famous novel, I found this one to be much less syrupy. It's a romance eventually, and it's not extremely deep - it was obviously written for young women at the turn of the century - but it is a delightful romp.Recommended for lovers of vintage novels.

    20. Hobby on said:

      After reading Pollyanna, I just a little bit dissappointed on this book. maybe because Pollyanna more like a child than story about Billy who already became teenager. But still this is really good book, perharps I will look for the original, something about this translation just not the right feeling. More info on this book visit my blog on : my-classic-books/

    21. Dyah Elisa on said:

      Ringan sekali kisah Miss Billy. Aku suka dengan part tentang strata yang ada di rumah mereka. Apalagi dengan setiap penghuni yang berbeda di setiap stratanya. Aku juga suka dengan tokoh Betram. Hangat, lembut, dan lucu. Rasanya pasti menyenangkan mempunyai teman seperti Betram. Ceritanya begitu ringan dan mudah tertebak, tetapi aku tetap menyukainya. Ending yang bahagia, tentu saja. :)

    22. Lies Tangalayuk on said:

      There are too many male characters in the novel, but somehow there is none I want to marry with. William is too old, Bertram is too talkative, Cyril is too introvert, and Calderwell?? Well, he's just fine, but I couldn't find myself have an interest with him. Billy herself is too young to have a romantic relationship with one of these men.

    23. Maya Widiatmoko on said:

      Well, memang butuh kesabaran kalo baca cerita klasik. Bukan berarti alur cerita-nya yang lambat tapi karena norma orang jaman dulu ngga se-blak2an kaya sekarang, jadi hanya untuk urusan hati bisa muter2 sampe ruwet. Tapi ada satu hal yang aku penasaran dan didalam cerita tidak pernah disebut2, apakah pekerjaan Billy? Berarti warisan yg ia terima cukup banyak-kah?Hmm

    24. Christin Natalia on said:

      The good things about this book are its innocence and simplicity. I like the short chapters and that each of them are given title. However, I found it boring. At first the book was a page-turner but then it became boring. The misunderstanding at the end saved it a little.

    25. Karlina on said:

      Cerita bernuansa romance yang terasa sangat mainstream dengan beberapa logika cerita yang kadang membuat kening berkerut. tapi ingat, novel ini ditulis pada abad ke 19 (tahun 1880), oleh seorang perempuan pula! pada masanya, pastilah ini sesuatu yang luar biasa.

    26. ula on said:

      Ceritanya bagus terlepas dari terjemahan dengan gaya bahasa yang kurang nyaman dan beberapa kalimat terjemahannya ada yang aneh. Ceritanya lucu dan menghibur, dan berhasil membuatku ngakak dan gemes.

    27. Marilyn Stein on said:

      This also was one of my Dad's books. It has his name and the year 1928 written in it. The copyright says 1911 and I believe it was printed in 1926. It's a hardcover book.I was young when I read it but do remember enjoying it very much.

    28. Jean on said:

      Considering when it was written, I enjoyed the story and would consider reading the sequels.
