Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Like the Oklahoma dust bowl from which she came, 14-year-old narrator Billie Jo writes in sparse, free-floating verse. In this compelling, immediate journal, Billie Jo reveals the grim domestic realities of living during the years of constant dust storms: That hopes--like the crops--blow away in the night like skittering tumbleweeds. That trucks, tractors, even Billie Jo's beloved piano, can suddenly be buried beneath drifts of dust. Perhaps swallowing all that grit is what gives Billie Jo--our strong, endearing, rough-cut heroine--the stoic courage to face the death of her mother after a hideous accident that also leaves her piano-playing hands in pain and permanently scarred.

Meanwhile, Billie Jo's silent, windblown father is literally decaying with grief and skin cancer before her very eyes. When she decides to flee the lingering ghosts and dust of her homestead and jump a train west, she discovers a simple but profound truth about herself and her plight. There are no tight, sentimental endings here--just a steady ember of hope that brightens Karen Hesse's exquisitely written and mournful tale. Hesse won the 1998 Newbery Award for this elegantly crafted, gut-wrenching novel, and her fans won't want to miss The Music of Dolphins or Letters from Rifka. (Ages 9 and older) --Gail Hudson -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

Pressestimmen

The characters are expertly portrayed in few words, and the desparation of the community is palpable... a vivid and well-realised picture of a moment in history, useful for any class studying 1930s America. www.writeaway.org.uk -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Out of the Dust
We read the book at our school in English-history lesson.
For understanding the book you must have a good general knowledge of the English language.
Before we read this book our class talked about the historical backround which is nessasary for the understading of this book.
The historical backround is that there was a Dust Bowl in the US in1930.
The main person of this book lived during this time. The whole story is told by an I-narrator this narrator is called Billie Jo and is 13 years old. She tells us about the bad living conditions during this time.
We think the book can be interesting for those who are interested in the history of the USA but it might be boring for those who aren't.
You can also get some history and landscape information on the last pages.
Another extra in the book is that there are vokabulary explanations at the bottom of the pages, this is a good help.

OUT OF THE DUST
When we first started to read the book"Out of the Dust", I thought that I never could finish that book.But while we were reading it, my opinion changed.
Billie Jo's feelings when her mom died are very well described. At the moment my mom is in the USA for 3 months, because she is very ill. It is hard for me and my family. I have a super relationship to her and so I miss her a lot. And so I can feel with Billie Jo. The relationship between Billie Jo and her father Bayard is not as good as mine to my father. We must stick together and this is a very important point, I think. At the end of the book the relation between Billie Jo and her father is better than before.
"ZEIT HEILT ALLE WUNDEN". Another aspect is that Billie Jo was away for some time and I think then they realised that they needed one another. Life can be so short and so it is best to do the best.
I really like the story of the book and I find it very good that we will make a film about it.
Here are two paragraphs, whose meaning I liked:
"I went looking for something,
but I didn't see anything wonderful.
I didn't see anything better than what I already had.
Home."
"The way I see it, hard times aren't only
about money,
or drought,
or dust.
Hard times are about losing spirit,
and hope,
and what happens when dreams dry up."

Jasmin Zanardo

Format: Taschenbuch
The book is written from the point of view of a fourteen - year old girl, Billie Jo. She talks about her life in the 1930s in Oklahoma, USA. It is very difficult for her because her mother died because of a terrible accident. Her father doesn't talk about that and Billie Jo's hands are burned badly so that she can't play the piano, her great passion.
We read the book in our English - History - Lessons at school. To read the book you need a bit of historical background - knowledge about the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression in America in the 1930s. A lot of that is explained in the bonus pages at the end of the book.
I think the book is rather good, but I woudn't have read it alone at home, if we hadn't read it at school. It is a good way to get the historical background knowledge you need for school, but it is not written in a very interesting way!
I would recommend it to everyone who is interested in America especially in the 1930s.

Book Review Book: Out of the Dust Author: Karen Hesse Imagine the life of a girl who lived on the prairies and everyday, she hoped the rain would come make the plants grow to feed their hungry stomachs. This is the life of fourteen-year-old Billy Jo. With a new child on the way, Billy Jo's family is helplessly stuck in the middle of a dust storm while their farm gets torn apart. When a terrible accident struck, Billy is robbed of the one thing that brought comfort to her life. The Piano. She remembers feeling so joyful sitting at the wooden bench with her hands placed on the keys. Her joyfulness is shown through the poem entitled, On Stage. "When I point my fingers at the keys, the music springs straight out of me. Right hand slaying notes sharp as tongues, telling stories while the smooth buttery rhythms back me up on the left. . . (Page 13)" But that was before the accident, now she wonders if life will ever be the same. Karen Hesse's book is far from the ordinary. Her unique style is hard to find. This novel is written in as a journal but also told by several poems. Instead of chapters there are different poems, each with their own theme. Reading a story written entirely in poems might not be the easiest thing but I think it nudges the reader to think outside the box: to think in different ways about the story. This novel also provides a challenge for the reader. Karen Hesse's creativity is shown throughout the book, never slacking. Her poems are shaped to suit the topic. For example in the poem, which was quoted earlier, the words are shaped like the key's of a piano as the poem's talking about the piano. This book gives a small peek into the life on the prairies, but it's enough to give a feeling of what it's like.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
