Argh just noticed that I m reading the confounded Abridged version Stopping now Will have to get the unabridged and start fresh Still very happy to somehow have kept a book that I read over and over again as a kid until its pages started falling out All pages rescued happily But didn t young me wonder why two of the kids suddenly had a pet eagle and a pet jackal out of nowhere Whoever thought to create abridged versions of books is a criminal for the agesAlso have to mention that these Robinsons are rapacious beyond belief killing or subjugating every animal unlucky enough to cross their paths Well I suppose they are just a very hungry family who love to have pets and fur But how did the ardent animal lover in little me reconcile this with the part of me that adored this book Disrespectful Old Review Family It Does a Body GoodFamily The Other White MeatFamily It s What s for Dinner

review Der Schweizerische Robinson Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB Johann David Wyss ✓ 3 read & download characters ð eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Johann David Wyss Island where a new life awaits them Their ship is laden with supplies and the island is packed with treasures so they soon adapt and discov. When I first started this book I found it rather comical at how many reviewers were appalled by all the animals that were killed mostly for food some for safety albeit some for sport or rather teenage childishness And I thought to myself not having read the book yet Where do these readers think their chicken nuggets and hamburgers come from Trees After having read the book I will confess there were a lot of dead animals But if one really takes the time to imagine what it would be like stranded somewhere with no other source of food and having with you 4 teenage boys I should think that each of us would take every opportunity to secure for us and ours that which would preserve our lives But I digress Father Robinson may be the original MacGyver He s amazing and entirely brilliant If I knew merely a tenth of what he possesses within his brain I should be happy all the days of my life But than that I think his role is that of a Christ archetype He is ever patient and teaching and wants to see his children succeed and helps them along the way He works with them in everything He never sits back and says Go figure it out on your own I m too busy He is the example of how each of us as parents SHOULD be towards our children and anyone else we have a stewardship over He is ever praising and very respectful of his wife and they work together as men and women should work together as euals and yet entirely uniue Oh the lessons that could be learned in our society today if we took this example to heart The book is full of the value of hard work teamwork compassion affection and creativity

review Der Schweizerische Robinson Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB Johann David Wyss ✓ 3 read & download characters ð eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Johann David Wyss Er new dangers and delights every day With an inspiring introduction by American author and America's first children's laureate Jon Scieszk. Wow What a relief to have that out of the way I have been painstakingly pushing my way through this book for a while now Having said that I always thought that The Swiss Family Robinson was just the type of story that I would like Going into it my expectations were high and I think my enthusiasm barreled me past the first few chapters without so much as a literary bump But just like trying to race up Everest you lose steam after the first hundred yard sprint and the rest is pure drudgery The unfortunate thing is that there was no sense of satisfaction upon finishing The Swiss Family Robinson as there would be in peaking Everest only relief Here is the problem as I see it and I will use the narrator s own words towards the end of the novel to explain it It is needless for me to continue what would exhaust the patience of the most long suffering by repeating monotonous narratives of exploring parties and hunting expeditions wearisome descriptions of awkward inventions and clumsy machines with an endless record of discoveries fit for the pages of an encyclopedia than a book of family history Wow Couldn t have said it better myself Mr Robinson though your realization of those things was about two hundred and fifty pages too late While I can t say it better I will sum it up nothing happens Oh sure they keep building these paradisaical tropical mansions lacking only in electronics and internet because those things haven t been invented yet but what exactly is happening Nothing The biggest conflicts they have are brought up one paragraph and resolved in the next And then there are the characters I originally loved the idea of a family being the protagonist instead of just some single adult male like in most stories But I think Wyss could have put personality into a single adult boulder than he did in this entire family That s not to say that there aren t distinguishing personality traits The chief one of the narrator is that he is annoying smug and wholly unbelievable Every idea he tried he immediately succeeded at accomplishing even if the whole human race had been trying the same feat unsuccessfully for thousands of years with plenty resources Any animal or plant he saw he immediately knew the scientific classification background and general usage for it as if reading out of the page of an encyclopedia an interesting study would be to find the Swiss encyclopedias of the time and find out which ones Wyss plagiarized from probably verbatim in most instances in order to piece together Mr Robinson s immaculate naturalist knowledge Perhaps I am being harsh okay yes I am being harsh especially for a book meant for children But I think that even children have a right to expect simple things like PLOT or DEVELOPED CHARACTERS as part of their reading experience However I realize that the book is up against some pretty stiff prejudices of mine You see before reading this I had also read The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne This one also has castaways on a destitute island who are able to create amazingly advanced machines technology and shelters with very limited resources limited than the Robinson family s even Yet I did not balk at incredulity when Cyrus Harding moved from one advancement to another or accessed astonishing amounts of information using his memory alone The reason why I believe it is because Verne actually knew what his characters were talking about Rather than slapping something from an encyclopedia entry and passing off haphazard hypotheses Verne had actually thought these things through understood the implications and context of each thing and put forward a fascinating but credible solution Besides The Mysterious Island I had also seen the Disney movie The Swiss Family Robinson Such a great great movie one of my all time favorite in fact How did it attain that status It made realistic characters that you could believe in and distinguish one from another It truly made the family the protagonist It cared about the characters first and the cool treehouse secondary although you have to admit the treehouse in that movie is AMAZING And finally there was a plot The characters were constantly working with an underlying conflict and it culminated in a worthy climax In short the movie fixed everything that was wrong with the book and they excelled at the few things the book got right such as the treehouse the appearance of another character later on in the story and the references to pirates Going into the reading with these expectations it is little wonder that Johann Wyss is getting the brunt of my frustrations here but in reality the book is harmless Long boring and redundant but harmless It is a great idea some uniue settings and some simple fun It is just a matter of sifting through all of the drudgery to get them
