Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Kenneth Grahame was a Scottish writer best-known for his celebrated children s novel, The Wind in the Willows. Prevented from attending university because of financial constraints, Grahame instead took a job with the Bank of England, which provided the financial security required to indulge his passion for writing. Many of Grahame s short stories were printed in the periodicals of the time, and were also later collected in Pagan Papers, The Golden Age, and Dream Days. Grahame s most famous work, the novel The Wind in the Willows, was originally conceived as a bedtime story for his son, and continues to be a beloved classic for children of all ages. Grahame died in 1932 at the age of 73.

Jap ernsthaft, dies ist mein Absolutes Lieblingsbuch. Allerdings sollte man es immer im Original lesen. Die Schönheit der Sprache vergeht wenn es nicht im Originaltext ist. Besonders die Deutsche Übersetzung wird nur noch zu einem Einfachen Kinderbuch. Mit Schöner Sprache meine ich besonders den Redefluß. Als ich es das erste mal Laß konnte ich nur jedes zweite Word verstehen habe es aber trotzdem durchgelesen obwohl nur Halb verstanden. Außerdem gibt es einem hohe Kenntnisse im verstehen der englischen Sprache, da man sich schneller mit unbekannten Wörtern und Formulierungen abgibt.
Ich empfehle es aber nicht vor einer Englisch Prüfung zu lesen, da man sonst zu sehr in diesem Alten Englisch ist. Auch wenn es nicht so Wild ist wie bei den Quartermain Büchern.

Zum lernen der Sprache empfehle ich ein Späteres Kinderbuch. Aber für jeden Könner der Sprache ist dies ein Must Have!.

Kenneth Grahame (8 March 1859 – 6 July 1932) was a Scottish writer, most famous for The Wind in the Willows (1908), one of the classics of children's literature. He also wrote The Reluctant Dragon; both books were later adapted into Disney films.
In 1908 Grahame retired from his position as secretary of the Bank of England. He moved back to Cookham, Berkshire, where he had been brought up and spent his time by the River Thames doing much as the animal characters in his book do — as one of the most famous phrases from the book says, "simply messing about in boats" — and wrote down the bedtime stories he had been telling his son Alistair.

Main characters:

Mole – A mild-mannered, home-loving animal, and the first character to be introduced. Fed up with spring cleaning in his secluded home, he ventures into the outside world. Originally overawed by the hustle and bustle of the riverbank, he eventually adapts.

Ratty – Ratty (actually a water vole) is cultured, relaxed and friendly, with literary pretentions and a life of leisure. Ratty loves the river and takes Mole under his wing. He is implied to be occasionally mischievous and can be stubborn when it comes to doing things outside of his riverside lifestyle.

Mr. Toad – The wealthy scion of Toad Hall. Good-natured, kind-hearted and not without intelligence, Toad inherited his wealth from his late father. Spoiled, conceited, and impulsive, he is prone to obsessions and crazes (such as punting, houseboats, and horse-drawn caravans), each of which in turn he becomes bored with and drops. His motoring craze eventually sees him imprisoned for theft, dangerous driving and gross impertinence to the rural police. Several chapters of the book chronicle his daring escape from prison.

HASH(0x97da7444) von 5 Sternen Enjoyable and Unique Read 24. Februar 2014
Von ARK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The last time I read Wind in the Willows, I was about 14 years old. I recall being slightly put off. Something seemed just... off about the story.

Having re-read it, I now know what bothered me. This book really isn't for kids at all. It's mature--not "mature" in a "bad" sense, but mature in the way it looks at the world. Characters have experiences that I think only an adult would completely comprehend--such as Rat's sudden wanderlust. Additionally, I think I was trying to find a point to it, but there's really no such thing. There's a light overarching story arc revolving around Toad's motorcar shenanigans, but that's as close as it gets. Most of the time it's a meandering series of short stories about animals farting around in a forest.

But what a fun fart-about it is! It is spectacularly well written--I am in awe of Grahame's prose--and includes lovable characters, great dialogue, and hilarious asides. The human mannerisms of the animals are charming, and it's quite funny to think of them as proper English gentlemen. The icing on the cake is Grahame's loving descriptions of nature and all the life that lives in it.

So many elements make this story precious and unique. It stands the test of time with ease. Please give it a chance! I think you'll really enjoy it!

HASH(0x97ca4a14) von 5 Sternen What an utterly charming book! 14. April 2015
Von Bookworm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
What an utterly charming book! I managed to never read this growing up, and I so wish I had - it was a lot of fun. The writing made me laugh out loud more than once. I know Mr. Toad is a very popular character, and I can certainly see why; I slightly preferred Mole though, as he seemed like a sweeter, nicer character overall. I truly wish this book was the first in a series, as I'd love to read more stories about these characters. A book well deserving of its status as a classic. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x97e53bd0) von 5 Sternen A classic tale 26. Januar 2013
Von OldFashionedGirl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This has been one of my favorite stories since childhood, and I continually enjoy meeting again the wonderful characters of Mr. Toad, Badge, Rat, and Mole. A wonderful and imaginative tale, it incorporates the beauty of country life and a fine moral for children that honesty, friendship, and humility are important virtues.
It is also interesting to note that this book was one of the inspirations of Brian Jacques, author of the popular "Redwall" series.

HASH(0x97ca49a8) von 5 Sternen A Classic Barn-Find 25. Oktober 2012
Von Stephen VC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
While reading a biography of C. S. Lewis, I learned he was very fond of this story. I vaguely remember its being a classic from my childhood and decided to read it for myself. This is one of those stories (like The Pilgrim's Progress) that virtually everyone had read a hundred years ago, yet it is almost unheard of by today's population. A worthy classic for young readers that should be read by many more. It's like Tom Sawyer and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow - too good to let slip away into oblivion.

HASH(0x97cb2f18) von 5 Sternen That Toad is such a rogue! 24. Oktober 2012
Von Mec - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This children's book wanders all over the map. And that is a compliment.

It's partly a peaceful pastorale with gentle-mannered humor between Rat, Mole, and Badger. And it's part hilarious adventure when that rascal Toad makes an appearance. And it's part adventure in the tale of the Norwegian rat. And part magical, from the subtle magic of the woods to the high magic of the Piper. Some of these chapters don't fit together, and for my taste, Toad's antics are way more funny than all the other characters. Grahame ties it all up at the end with a satisfying one-for-all, all-for-one battle scene.
