4.0 von 5 Sternen Topical in our days even if published 40 years ago
Amazing that already 40 years ago, when this book was published for the first time, the subject of "time travels" was treated. This is exactly what we understand now by the modern theory of parallel worlds. Therefore this book is not only interesting for children, but for adults as well. Another aspect why I like the novel and recommend it for children, is...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Eighth Grade Critics
The book did not interest us. It was well written but if you are not into adventure this book is for you. A boy goes back in time into a garden and meets some people. That is what the entire book is about and after awhile it gets boring

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Tom's Midnight Garden (Taschenbuch)
Amazing that already 40 years ago, when this book was published for the first time, the subject of "time travels" was treated. This is exactly what we understand now by the modern theory of parallel worlds. Therefore this book is not only interesting for children, but for adults as well. Another aspect why I like the novel and recommend it for children, is the point that by reading the description of the garden you get a deep respect of nature. I simply find it lovely that Mrs Pearce gives names to the trees, as Tricksy and St. Paul for example. The best thing to do is to read the book on a warm summer evening sitting in your garden!

5.0 von 5 Sternen mystery of love and time, 31. Dezember 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Tom's Midnight Garden (Taschenbuch)
I read the book at the age of twelve and I remembered it when I deeply fell in love for the first time in my early twenties. My experience of the girl I loved and the way she changed in the intervals of our relationship into someone different, whereas I clung to the original perception of her personality, made me think about time, change, personality and the possibility of a "time-surpassing love" of someone's "eternally true" personality. The novel shows deep insights into the mysteries of time and love and conveys the feelings of true if impossible love against time.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best books ever, 28. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Tom's Midnight Garden (Taschenbuch)
"Tom's Midnight Garden" belongs on any "Best Novels of the 20th Century" list. I came to "Midnight Garden" through Pearce's other books. Read her ghost stories (many about animals), and tales of English urban and suburban children's lives. Ms. Pearce never talks down to children, treating her readers and creations with respect. Also, the adult insights and regrets that we may have forgotten experiencing when we were young, abound in her work. She is very wise. A quick example: A boy dreads a family get together for great grandmother's 100th birthday celebration because of a vicious, bullying cousin. Nevertheless, the terrible reunion day arrives. During a game of hide and seek, as the bully chases our hero, he happens to duck into a quiet room only to find that the 100 year old grandmother has been warehoused there, wheeled out of the way at her own party. Even though age and infirmity have rendered her hardly able to speak, it seems that she senses the boy's fear as the door handle turns and the bully comes inside. As the bully advances into the room, it's silence is broken by a hideous, ghostly wail. Bully runs terrified from the hellish moan, and great-grandmother's face has a slight smile on it, the only (other) physical action she can manifest. She has moaned and (do I remember correctly?) popped her teeth out and protected the boy the only way she can. But that's not all. Our boy gets away, but thinking back on the incident, wishes he had properly thanked great grandmother for her help. (And here is the greatness of Pearce's art) The obligations not met, connections never made, the friend in need never thanked, the other-aged comrade with whom we now know we should have connected, the good words not spoken, Pearce always has woven into the cloth of the story. The immensity of life and our day-late-dollar-short performance in the world is there to be recognized along with the humor and action of the story. This is bittersweet, profound fiction but no moral is grafted on to her tales. It is there to be seen for he (or she) who has eyes with which to see it. Philippa Pearce, who was a BBC radio dramatist before becoming a children's author, is one of the very fine writers of our century.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Still charming, 15. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Tom's Midnight Garden (Bibliothekseinband)
Ah, rereading this book took me back. It really has everything a child could want from a story - sympathetic characters, some sentiment, some action, and an excellent ending. Incidentally, BBC television did a very good dramatisation of this in the 1970s. I'm sure today's children wouldn't mind a repeat.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An incredible book, 13. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Tom's Midnight Garden (Taschenbuch)
I read this book when I was nine years old and I never forgot it. I forced all my sisters to read it, and then they forced all _their_ friends to read it. I'm glad this book is still in print because it is one of the best books I have ever read.

Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Tom's Midnight Garden (Taschenbuch)
I read this book as a child and still have wonderful memories of it. I'm now re-ordering it, so that as an adult, I can experience that magic feeling again. I also want to have it for my son when he's old enough to read

4.0 von 5 Sternen A journey that takes you back and forth through time., 27. Dezember 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Tom's Midnight Garden (Bibliothekseinband)
What a wonderful journey into a boy's dreamlife.
The mystery of nightlife is opened in this beautifully written piece. Yet, the intrigue and magic of "sleep-travel" remains a wonder until the very last word.
Each night we are explorers of a new frontier when we fall into sleep. Philippa Pearce opens the door this unknown and undiscovered realm---"sleep and dream" and the world inside.
This journey is a seductive invitation to live your sleeping hours.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A haunting, beautiful tale of love that transcends time, 18. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Tom's Midnight Garden (Taschenbuch)
I first read this book at age 12, and still love it today at age 50. As a child, I loved it as a mystery, a ghost story. As I grew older, I loved it for its delving into the mysteries of time and space and religion. Now, it seems to me, most of all, a story of how two lonely children - a liitle boy named Tom and a little girl named Hattie - found each other's worlds and shared their lives. The ending never fails to move me to tears.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great novel by any standard., 8. April 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Tom's Midnight Garden (Taschenbuch)
I read this as an adult and it seemed to touch on every emotion I had experienced while growing up: the dreams and imagination which are more real than life; the forming of bonds which will last a lifetime. And all of those memories which seem to belong to the summer more than any other season. This book ranks as one of the major novels of the century -- not just as a so-called "children's book," but as a book, plain and simple.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Back In Time, 2. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Tom's Midnight Garden (Bibliothekseinband)
Tom's Midnight Garden is an awesome book. I love how it keeps you in suspence about what is actually going on. I also love how it talks about past and present together. I have some friends who didn't like the book very much because it was difficult for them to comprehend the creativity of the book. I also have some friends who found the book extremely interesting and would recomend it to anyone, as would I.
