5.0 von 5 Sternen Harriet - Delightful at 12, Still a Riot at 30-something
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.

2.0 von 5 Sternen You all love it. I despise it.
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...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Harriet - Delightful at 12, Still a Riot at 30-something, 3. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Harriet the Spy (Bibliothekseinband)
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
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Harriet the Spy (Bibliothekseinband)
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.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Harriet the Spy (Taschenbuch)
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great tale of how friends fall out and in again, 24. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Harriet the Spy (Taschenbuch)
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
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Harriet, the Spy (Taschenbuch)
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A realistic book that teaches children important things, 5. Februar 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Harriet the Spy (Bibliothekseinband)
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 Thanks Harriet, 30. September 1996
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Harriet the Spy (Taschenbuch)
Harriet the Spy didn't just teach me how to snoop, it taught
me how to snoop and write at the same time. For months
after my first reading of Harriet, I feverishly followed
anyone who caught my 10 year-old eye, filling notebook
after notebook with observations and speculations. Louise
Fitzhugh introduced my little literary mind to a new kind
of heroine -- one more daring than Nancy Drew, smarter than
Ramona Quimby, and less neurotic than any of Judy Blume's
characters. Harriet was brave and observent and smart all
at once, whether she was hiding in the dumbwaiter or
seeking revenge on the other kids, and she inspired me
to take many adventures of my own. I recently came across
some of my old Harriet journals, and reading through them,
found myself laughing out loud at the honesty (stinging,
sometimes) of my spy writings. The enteries were unencumbered
by adult subtleties, and I was so glad to have a glimpse
back at myself as a brave and observent ten-year old girl.
Thanks Harriet -- I think of you often.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you haven't read this since you were 11, read it again!, 28. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Harriet the Spy (Bibliothekseinband)
Curled up in the back of my mom's Volkswagen for a long road trip in 1975, I read Harriet the Spy cover-to-cover, and like so many of us, I found in Harriet a friend I could trust. The adult world baffled me, but Harriet helped make sense of it. Everything she said was so clear and sensible. Obviously adults were just whack-o and the best approach was to lay low and watch. Above all, maintain a healthy suspicion and skeptisism about all grown-up plots against kids, such as psychiatrists and dancing lessons. Between the age of 11 and 14, I read the book 4 or 5 times. I picked it up again when I was 28 and, wow, what a different experience it was! I loved it just as much, but as an adult, I suddenly understood what all that adult weirdness was about! I'd lived it. In fact, I practically embodied it. I imagined the kinds of notes Harriet would make about me if she came to spy at my house. If you haven't read Harriet the Spy since you were a kid, read it again. It'll cast your life in a new light, and that may be a good thing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is a very interesting book!, 7. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Harriet the Spy (Taschenbuch)
What I thought was most interesting was how descriptive the book was. When a character was introduced, the author gave a good description of that person, and that's what caught my eye the most in the book. It also illustrated how cruel it is to make fun of people and how hurtful it is to be on the receiving end of it. Plus it was a good size book and it gave just what you need to know. Other books seem to go on and on and on and on making them hard to follow. The reader can barely tell what the plot is because there are too many things going on. My favorite part was when Harriet was spying on her nanny by the lake. I liked the fact that Harriet thought of herself as a spy because that's something that I'd like to do, too. If I had written the book I might have had her using more gadgets than the author does. Harriet spends most of her time spying on people and writing in her journal. I would like to have seen more "James Bond" type of action and suspense. I really liked the book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Harriet the Spy: The Innocence and creativity of our youth., 13. April 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Harriet the Spy (Taschenbuch)
Upon reading Harriet the Spy, I found myself feeling the same kinds of emotions that I had as an eleven year old. Fitzhugh seems to capture the
environment of the pre-teen world, with its insecurities, its need for belonging, and its mountain of creativity. Harriet, with her notebook and her dream of becoming a writer, Is put through terrible trauma at the loss of her Nanny, Ole Golly, and without her lifelong companion, the events that follow are almost impossible to overcome. When her notebook is stolen, and her peers read everything she has written about them, even Harriet's own best friends turn against her. What comes to follow is the solitude that Harriet faces, and worse than solitude, she must face the scorn of all of her classmates. In the end, Harriet learns the value of a few different things. She learns to apologize, and that in some cases, it's okay to lie. And, most importantly, she learns the value of a good friendship.
