Tuck Everlasting is slow-moving book with no real climax. There is not enough description of the characters, not allowing you to fully understand why the characters do certain thing. The author dragged on about setting and description for 24 chapters (there are 26 chapters). Nothing really happens, Natalie wastes time over-explaining the setting and what us happening. Jesse, is a creepy and twisted boy, he has been living looking like he is 17 for how knows how long and he WANTS TO MARRY A 11 YEAR OLD GIRL. Winnie's family seems stuck-up and snobby,p but Natalie does not explain her family enough. This is such a boring book!!! What is wrong with Winnie, she leaves Jesse hanging.
