Tove Jansson is really kind of amazing This is only the second books of hers I ve read, the other being The Summer Book I was impressed then by the subtlety of her writing and her nuanced depiction of complex, contradictory human beings, but I wasn t entirely surprised it was an adult book, written about people Jansson knew well personally I was not expecting a short children s book about cute made up creatures to display the same level of insights into human nature and behavior But it totally does It s not heavy handed if you re a small child mostly interested in the fun adventures of Moomins you can totally read it just for that You won t be slapped in the face by the fact that people are sometimes needless cruel, or unhappy for no good reason, misunderstand one another, hate themselves But they do They do Even if they are cuddly troll Wr ci s o ce my la Muminek, podniecony Koniec z ciemno ciami, koniec z samotno ci B dzie mo na usi sobie na werandzie i pogrza plecy Moim zdaniem najs absza z dotychczas przeczytanych przeze mnie ksi ek z tej serii Wiadomo jednak, Muminki to Muminki.
So awesome Moominvalley floods, and they take shelter in what was actually a theatre that had drifted by Some truly charming and hilarious moments.
Reread 2019 Truly one of the weirder of the Moomin books, and that s saying quite a lot A theatre is the most important sort of house in the world, because that s where people are shown what they could be if they wanted, and what they d like to be if they dared to and what they really areMoominsummer Madness is the fourth title in Tove Jansson s series of stories about a family of benevolent, philosophical trolls with downy fur and soft round snouts, who reside in a rather unusual house in an attractive woodland valley by the sea.
Moominites tend to consider this book, first published in 1954, the final title in the series written with only children in mind As with the earlier stories, the scenery is pleasingly verdant, but the setting isn t specifically Finnish, and the plot is driven by a natural disaster as opposed to internal conflict The story begins with a rumbling volcano, raining ash down on M ß Farlig midsommar ✓ I ve liked all Moomin books this far, but somehow this one appealed to me even than usual The writing style and the atmosphere of the story are exactly as magical as they should be on a Midsummer night, and despite the rather absurd and adventurous happenings the book left me with a very peaceful mood There s almost something Shakespearean in this, even though there are no fairies The play within the story is hilarious, and the whole theatre thing just made me laugh so much I also fangirl Snufkin and this book shows some sides of his personality very well.
Mieleen muistui selke sti muumijakso, jonka olen n hnyt lapsena.
Pidin paljon, muumikirjat selv sti osaavat lumota i st riippumatta.
