    I don t know why, but this seemed really above average to me Also, the job of a telegraph boy sounded really interesting.

    The Telegraph Boy is another of many Horatio Alger stories I really enjoy Horatio Alger s stories because, I like seeing young men thrive and prosper in the harsh world, as well as learning how different the prices of things are now compared to back in the late 1800 s to early 1900 s The Telegraph Boy is about a fifteen year old boy, who left his Aunt and Uncle who live in the country, to live in New York City When he got there he was robbed which left him with no money At first he helped a SUPPOSEDLY blind man to earn money Then he left to sell newspapers for a living Later on he became a telegraph boy, which goes to any destination to aid someone in need of help In the end, he was earning a good amount of money, along with money from his deceased parents He was a well trusted and honest boy, who had many friends by the end of the book These books range from 150 250 pages , so usually I finish them within a week, which allows me to read a lot of them quickly Every once in a while, I wish I had as much success as some of these boys, but sometimes the boys are prosperous, because of a lot of luck and willpower to never give up This book was great, and I m really excited to read another Horatio Alger book, but I want to take a break from all of these old books and read a book much newer and unrealistic I have learned from many of these books that the friends and people I choose to be around are important, because if I choose to be around bad people I might get robbed by them, or they might not help me On the other hand, good friends might do me favors, or help me in hard and rough times, or maybe even lend me money when it is needed.Once I finished the book, I loved how great it was, but I also felt relief because I had finished another book I think all youth these days should read these books, because they are wholesome and have big and complex words, which modern kids should know.
