Ages 8-12. Thirty-two years before it was made into a movie, Harriet the Spy was a groundbreaking book: its unflinchingly honest portrayal of childhood problems and emotions changed children's literature forever. Happily, it has neither dated nor become obsolete and remains one of the best children's novels ever written. The fascinating story is about an intensely curious and intelligent girl, who literally spies on people and writes about them in her secret notebook, trying to make sense of life's absurdities. When her classmates find her notebook and read her painfully blunt comments about them, Harriet finds herself a lonely outcast. Fitzhugh's writing is astonishingly vivid, real and engaging, and Harriet, by no means a typical, loveable heroine, is one of literature's most unforgettable characters. School Library Journal wrote, "a tour de force... bursts with life." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books called it "a very, very funny story." And The Chicago Tribune raved, "brilliantly written... a superb portrait of an extraordinary child."

"This is the book that made me want to be a writer. [Harriet] was the first fictional female character I ever came across who privileged her own truth above the expectations put on her as a little girl."  —Anna Holmes for Bookish.com

“I don’t know of a better novel about the costs and rewards of being a truth teller, nor of any book that made more readers of my generation want to become fiction writers. I love the story of Harriet so much I feel as if I lived it.” —Jonathan Franzen, author of Freedom and The Corrections

Von Ein Kunde
I first read this book when I was about 12 - and found it funny, clever, and wonderful. I still read it every few years - to the same result. It never ceases to make me laugh and to contemplate the lessons Harriet learned on her "spy route" and in her other adventures. Harriets own notes are included, with hilarious observations and an occasional honest emotion - growing pains. The characters are smashing, with great names like Pinky Whitehead (a boy). I've since met people I'd swear were the prototypes for the characters. Every now and then I see myself in one, and it gives me reason to pause and say "Oh no! I remind myself of(insert character here)! I need to clean up my act!" One of my all-time favorite books - so refreshing. (Do, however, avoid the sequel, "The Long Secret." Atrocious.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen It should get 10 stars! 26. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
This is my favorite childhood book by FAR. I read it when I was 8 or 9 and read it 13 times between the 4th and 6th grade. (I have never read another book more then twice). I recomend this book to anybody, especially kids, and I think the movie was alright but the book is much better. Everyone should read it.

2.0 von 5 Sternen You all love it. I despise it. 5. Januar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This makes me an outcast, perhaps. But I absolutely loathe Harriet the Spy. No, not the book. The character. Harriet. The first time I read this book I ripped it to pieces and had to pay the library. This book is honest and groundbreaking and all that, perhaps. But I cannot stand it. It makes me want to throw up, but that's too passive. I did like that girl who wanted to blow up the world. But if I ever encounter Harriet on the street, there's going to be trouble. I don't understand why and how we are supposed to like this character, much less how and why so many people do. But I think she is the basest sort of person, and deserving of far, far more punishment than she gets. I have now written two reviews based on the main characters; both characters write in journals things which they would never speak. I love Mary Lou Finney (from "Absolutely Normal Chaos" by Sharon Creech). I despise Harriet. And, wow, it's great to get this all off my chest.

This story is about a girl called Harriet who wants to be a spy. She writes lots of notes about people in a special notebook. She spies on people who live nearby and she writes about her friends and people at her school. Harriet has a nanny called Ole Golly who gives her lots of good advice.
One day, Ole Golly leaves to get married. About the same time, Harriet loses one of her notebooks. Her friends find it. Unfortunately, Harriet has written some rather mean things about her friends and she finds that they all turn into her enemies and they do mean things to her. They even make a spy catchers club.
Harriet is very unhappy. One day, she gets a letter from Ole Golly who tells her that sometimes people have to say that they are sorry and sometimes they have to tell white lies so they don't hurt other people's feelings.
Harriet works out a very clever way of saying sorry to her friends and the story does have a happy ending.
This is quite a long book, and the type is quite small, but I read it quickly and I think that children aged 7 and over who enjoy reading would really enjoy this book. In fact this book is good for adults too as my mum enjoyed reading it with me.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I memorized entire chapters: "Harriet" is amazing. 10. März 1997
Von Ein Kunde
My aunt gave "Harriet" to me when I was seven years old. I instantly fell in love. I took the yellowed hardcover with me everywhere. I memorized entire chapters. To this day, it's one of the best books I've ever encountered. It inspired me to keep writing into a stronger place. I was the kid with the notebook when I was little, estranged by my one-time friends, busy with a leaky fountain pen. To love is to truly accept. "Harriet the Spy" continues to amaze me. Truly the best buy for aspiring writers who need a little extra. Loneliness is everywhere in this society, and the vivid descriptions and observations of this eleven year old are so full of advice and wisdom that all ages can benefit with a little understanding.
If you have not read this book-- do it. The loss of friends, growing up, being alone, coping are so usual that they don't receive enough attention. This was the book I plunged into when I was depressed. Find room on your bookshelf. This is a real keeper. Harriet is not only a very accurate character, but a loveable and intense young woman. We've all been misunderstood-- this is the path to understanding.

This book has many realistic details describing both happenings and feelings. Each of the people and families
Harriet spies on has their own story that makes you think.
You can also think about other people, such as Mrs. Golly, as their behaviour isn't always commented or rated.
I think this book teaches children to accept differences and to dare to be different themselves. Her nurse, Ole Golly tells Harriet that there are lots of ways to live, and
she should find out about them, so that when she grows up, she can live the way she wants instead of the way her family does. This book introduces the readers to some ways. Ole Golly also says that eleven is old enough to start growing up into the person you want to be.
I liked this book because it made me feel I could do anything I wanted to and be really different. I think this might be useful for other children who are too shy or think that they are allowed too little.
I also recommend this book's sequel, The Long Secret, written in the same style. It is about religion, and again--different ways to live. (Of course, both books have good plots, too.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Of course she's a sociopath. That's the message.
This book is not strictly for children. I saw it as acommentary about alienated rich kids. Harriet usually sees herparents for only a few minutes a day, which would explain her... Lesen Sie weiter...
