    1. I am not reading this in German however it is by far the best picture The modern cover for the English version is this WTF hattip wandaful Available on Project Gutenberg gutenberg ebooks 33762 I shall read this on my laptop, a page at a time Life is grand, thank you Wanda.Opening Every one who has been to school and still remembers what he was taught there, knows that R gen is the biggest island Germany possesses, and that it lies in the Baltic Sea off the coast of Pomerania.She finds a travel g [...]


    2. This is the lady equivalent of Starship Troopers You can read a satiric commentary, or read a lovely and addicting travel narrative of Baltic resort life 100 years ago Words are carefully, beautifully chosen even the descriptions of scenery are interesting , and it s worth a look just to admire the casual precision of language and tone Meanwhile, everyone in the book is so miserable The women are furiously, silently frustrated with the social conventions that force them to do what they least wan [...]


    3. One cannot underestimate my love for Von Arnim s writing Her fiction is good, but her autobiographical work is pure joy In this kind of work she doesn t write about much of anything, but her spirit and intelligence shine in witty observations of daily life Daily life it indeed was in her first two books, Elizabeth and Her German Garden and The Solitary Summer In those she simply described her daily goings on, mostly in her beloved garden in rural Pomerania In The Solitary Summer she had a small [...]


    4. Sadly cannot find the exact edition of this book by Gutenberg Project that I downloaded to my kindle for free Both my husband and I read this book having seen it referred to in a walking program Wanderlust with Julia Bradbury and having relatives that vacation on Rugen annually It distresses me that the book descriptions are often incorrect for the various editions Elizabeth in 1904 was a lady before her timese wanted to walk Rugen and experience it totally but could not get a woman friend to ac [...]


    5. Con l arrivo della bella stagione, se siete amanti della natura e vi piace immergervi in lunghe pagine descrittive questo libro fa per voi.Elizabeth a Rugen pi che un romanzo sembra essere quasi una guida di viaggio, la stessa protagonista si rivolge spesso al lettore nel suo percorso, con recensioni su varie pensioni e lunghe descrizioni del paesaggio.La protagonista, Elizabeth, decide di intraprendere un solitario viaggio per staccare dalla quotidianit e quale migliore occasione di visitare Ru [...]


    6. The title character narrator might also be the author, don t know, don t care is a wealthy English lady who married a German whatever and now regards herself as a female Junker , and feels like traveling around the island of R gen all alone, which means being driven in a carriage by a chauffeur and having her shoes buttoned by a maid These are inferior beings of course she sometimes seriously ponders the possible presence of inner life in her maid , not allowed to bother her There are others, na [...]


    7. This was a rather short work by my dear old dead friend Elizabeth von Arnim No, of course we weren t really friends, seeing as how she died eons ago before I was even a twinkle in my Pappy s eye But if we had been contemporaries, I am sure we would have been the best of friends Like Jane Austen, she is very intelligent and witty Like Gaskell, she is very nice Yeah, nice She thinks snarky things, but is well bred enough to not speak it She s nice Anyway, this is tiny bit of travel literature She [...]


    8. Von Arnim s nastiness knows no bounds From disgust with the help to hatred for her female companions, this book is less about travel and about von Arnim s sadistic side and absence of empathy The first turn off is von Arnim s displeasure at her cousin s choices choices which seemed to have arisen from disillusionment with her marriage and the loss of six very young children in succession Cousin Charlotte is also a feminist and interested, perhaps single mindedly, with the betterment of women an [...]


    9. In 1901, the Countess von Arnim Schlagenthin decides to go on a walking tour of Rugen, Germany s largest island off the Pomeranian coast None of her friends want to go with her, so she decides to go alone, in a carriage instead of walking She has an idea of writing a travel guide of the best inns on the island and best places to swim, etc She accomplishes this her gift of poetically describing nature s gifts is admirably suited to this task , but her tour of Rugen ends up being an adventure in e [...]


    10. Many authors despair of book signings however, I enjoy not just meeting the readers of my rural romances, The Sovereign Series, but also the opportunity to browse vast shelves of books, old and new At a recent book signing at Beyond the Sea in Lincolnville Beach, Nanette the owner had piled a few books other than my own on the small wooden table at which I sat Naturally, I was curious to see what work was important enough to crowd me out and somewhat antagonistically I picked up a small gray and [...]


    11. I was wanting to read this book after recently finding out it is the third of a series that does not need to be read together because each book stands on its own but having read Elizabeth s German Garden and Solitary Summer, and enjoying Elizabeth von Arnim s journal like style Elizabeth has such a refreshing air about her that has me, enjoying all she says even though all the stories I have read of her including The Enchanted April are not story driven but people driven You are driven forward b [...]


    12. I bought this book over twenty years ago, when I was in R gen myself I thought it would be fun to read a book about the place I was just visiting As usual for me when travelling, though, I read about five pages while there Back home, it went on the bookshelf until a few weeks ago I was looking for a slim volume to go in my bag for another trip R gen had left a great impression on me, though, and I still remember it vividly, so I could easily follow Elizabeth s fresh and vivid impressions and enj [...]


    13. The Adventures of Elizabeth in R gen is the third in a series of autobiographical novels by Elizabeth von Arnim which starts with her novel Elizabeth and her German Garden The second novel The Solitary Summer I have yet to read, or even possess but I don t think it really matters which order one reads these novels, they don t follow on really in the conventional sense.This beautifully written novel took me right away from the here and now, to another time and a place I must admit to not even hav [...]


    14. Reading Von Arnim s semibiographical novel is like reading a letter from old friend It feels close at heart, although it was written than a century ago Lovely description of Ruegen, humorous random observation of trivial things, and her interaction with other characters made me laugh a lot As a fellow introvert I know how it felt when all I want to do is enjoying my time alone and then accidentally I bumped into chit chatty friends relatives strangers, and I had to wear a smile and behaved acco [...]


    15. I loved the style of writing by Ms von Arnim She describes the beautiful Rugen scenery with words that seem to flow like a whirling stream, ever so gentle, ever so beautiful On her 10 day adventure to the island of Rugen, Ms von Arnim, is transported by horse and cart with her abiding maid and her horseman Along the way she meets a long lost cousin trekking alone to escape her husband a mother and son travelling from Britain and then thou and behold, the cousin s husband She describes to the rea [...]


    16. Ein Reiseroman.The original title of this novel is The Adventures of Elizabeth in R_gen Marie Annette Beauchamps 1866 1941 , the cousin of the author Catherine Mansfield, was born in Australia She married into the German von Arnim family and, as a writer, became known as Elizabeth von Arnim Elizabeth and the German Garden , Father , The Enchanted April She writes about women trying to find their own ways, exploring new options, and trying out new things, and about the beauty of nature.This humor [...]


    17. This is the story of Elizabeth travel records around Rugen, the largest German s island and a popular tourist destination.During her walking s with her maid Gertrud, they met Elizabeth s cousin, Charlotte According to some biographical data of the author, it seems that this character could have been her real cousin, Katherine Mansfield.Elizabeth and Her German Garden and The Solitary Summer are the next books to read by this author, after have enjoyed so much her lovely book The Enchanted April. [...]


    18. One of Elizabeth s best novels, although it is important to understand how the island of R gen is important to German Romanticism and how Elizabeth s husband is related tp a famous German Romantic author, Achim von Arnim 1781 1831 , to fully appreciate the send up of the English tourists infatuation with German Romanticism and the sublime experience.


    19. This is a delightful novel typical of the turn of the last century in many ways, yet with some dark and powerful undercurrents that foreshadow both the author s own later life and the changes that occurred in the next fifty or so years in the world at large The irony and satirical, tongue in cheek tone are delicious and perfect, never overdone and often hysterically funny.


    20. Funny, with lovely scenery descriptions,good humor and witty observations, the book was a delight In the first chapters nothing happens but after an unexpected meeting with her cousine the events speed up.


    21. Reread, and as lovely as remembered Glorious descriptions of scenery and a familiar desire to be alone, thwarted at every turn Sly sarcastic social commentary and vivid descriptions of a marvelous July.


    22. Lo confesso, sono una fan di Elizabeth Von Arnim, della sua scrittura sottilmente, candidamente umoristica Questa guida di viaggio costellata di eventi e ritratti che sfiorano la bizzarria ricorda qua e l le peregrinazioni descritte da Jerome, con lo stesso effetto comico.


    23. Very enjoyable a travel book with a small story She travels with her maid Gertrude and bumps into long lost cousin Charlotte She is quite a feminist.


    24. Absolute delightful, froth sniggered out loud in public space cleverly written, well observed, with a great deal of bite underneath





    25. This is the third book by this author that I have read and I really enjoy her love of solitude, the outdoors and her subtle humor that comes through in her writing Written in 1904 3.5 stars.



    26. This is one of my favorite books of all time I just love the way Elizabeth von Arnim writes Her prose, and this book in particular, is full of wit, humor and personality She is so fun to read.
