Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Seventeen-year-old Cassandra Mortmain wants to become a writer. Trouble is, she's the daughter of a once-famous author with a severe case of writer's block. Her family--beautiful sister Rose, brooding father James, ethereal stepmother Topaz--is barely scraping by in a crumbling English castle they leased when times were good. Now there's very little furniture, hardly any food, and just a few pages of notebook paper left to write on. Bravely making the best of things, Cassandra gets hold of a journal and begins her literary apprenticeship by refusing to face the facts. She writes, "I have just remarked to Rose that our situation is really rather romantic, two girls in this strange and lonely house. She replied that she saw nothing romantic about being shut up in a crumbling ruin surrounded by a sea of mud."

Rose longs for suitors and new tea dresses while Cassandra scorns romance: "I know all about the facts of life. And I don't think much of them." But romantic isolation comes to an end both for the family and for Cassandra's heart when the wealthy, adventurous Cotton family takes over the nearby estate. Cassandra is a witty, pensive, observant heroine, just the right voice for chronicling the perilous cusp of adulthood. Some people have compared I Capture the Castle to the novels of Jane Austen, and it's just as well-plotted and witty. But the Mortmains are more bohemian--as much like the Addams Family as like any of Austen's characters. Dodie Smith, author of 101 Dalmations, wrote this novel in 1948. And though the story is set in the 1930s, it still feels fresh, and well deserves its reputation as a modern classic. --Maria Dolan -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Linda Hudson am 6. November 1998
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have long adored this book! I am so pleased to see so many discovering and rediscovering it. I would like to share a letter I received from Dodie Smith in 1985, when she so kindly responded to a letter I wrote to her. She replied:
Dear Lynn Hudson, Very many thanks for a particularily kind letter. "I Capture the Castle" was first published in 1948, 37 years ago and yet I still get letters about it, from old friends like you and also, occasionaly, from new friends. I'm astonished and proud that it has lasted so long. I've written other novels and two of my childrens' books continue to be succesful, (paticularily The Hundred and one Dalmatians), but nothing (for me anyway) means as much as ICTC> Where did those characters come from? They are not drawn from life. The Castle partly is but I changed it a great deal and I much prefer my own castle! I've been asked again and again to write a sequel to ICTC but I'm sure I never could. I don't even like to think of the future of the characters because I don't want them to grow older. I've been asked again and again to say whom Cassandra marries but I've no idea. I like to think of her just hopeful for the future and I shall let myself think you and I share this idea. I am now 89 and sometimes (but only sometimes) almost feel it, but not when I think about Cassandra. Thank You again for your letter which has given me great pleasure. And I like to think that in some mysterious realm of the imagination, the characters in my book are pleased to and send you their love-with mine. Dodie Smith Dodie Smith and I wrote back and forth a few more times, until she was unable to write again. She died in 1990. Thank-You, Dodie, for the wonderful gift of "I Capture the Castle"!

Format: Taschenbuch
Perfectly crafted, endearing and charming - in short an absolutely lovely book.

I read my old peacock edition so often that it has started falling apart. And I know whole conversations by heart. Cassandra is the most wonderful character - sensitive, literate, highly intelligent and still too young to be always tactful. Her eccentric family is made up of people you'll never forget.

"I Capture the Castle" is a slightly old-fashioned but in essence timeless coming-of-age story that has the reader alternately crying and giggling.

Oh yeah, and though I always loved to imagine scrumptious Stephen and was rather annoyed with Cassandra for not choosing him (and amazed that she could so cooly state "I do not reciprocate Stephen's feelings" and then stick to it), I could understand why she fell in love with Simon all right.

Wonderful to read as a young girl, or when you're missing the young girl you once were, or when you're trying to abstain from chocolate but want the same comforting, nourishing effect... I LOVE THIS BOOK.

(To all those smart enough to listen: do not watch the movie though.)

I fell in love with this book from the very first chapter. It's funny, poignant and creates such a vivid picture of Cassandra's family and castle that you never forget them. From Bohemian Topaz to Mortmain and the cake knife, from Rose to Stephan to Leda Fox-Cotton, all these people are real. Read this book. You will never forget it.

1 von 1 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Holly Loth am 4. Juni 1998
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
My mother nearly shrieked in the middle of the library book sale as she ran over to me, thrusting into my adolescent hands a grey, clothbound book.
"This is the BEST book!" she said. "I have been looking for this book for you for years!"
Naturally, being a teenager, I did not want to like whatever my mother liked, and it took me a long time to open the cover of _I Capture the Castle_. Once I did, once I read that fantastic first sentence, I was hooked. Since then, I have read it at least once every year, and my mother and her friend Polly and I have amused ourselves for many hours casting the movie we'd like to make of it (Gabriel Byrne for Mortmain, Sean Bean for The Swain . . . ?).
It is a charming, clever, intelligent book, with a heroine who is three-dimensional and extremely sympathetic. Its cast of characters are the family and friends you always wished you had, its love story satisfying in its open-endedness.
If you know a smart, literary teenaged girl (or if you are or were one), buy the book. I swear you won't regret it.

Format: Taschenbuch
This is the most incredible book--it is an example of the way a book should be written. It is very hard to say something that hasn't already been said . . .this book has been receiving accolades for nearly half a century, and rightfully so. As a fan of Jane Austen, I found myself thinking throughout the book that if Jane were alive in the 1940's, this was what she would have written. It has everything--adventure, romance, humor, and a little bit of philosophizing thrown in for good measure. It is one of those books that when you finish it, you find yourself sad that it ended, and wanting to open it right back up and start again. If you are looking for a great rainy Sunday afternoon in front of the fire novel, a great reading on the airplane novel, or a just plain great novel, pick this up. You won't be sorry you did.
