101 Dalmatians Reviews
Das ist also die Buchvorlage für die mittlerweile zahlreichen Disney-Produktionen rund um 101 Dalmatiner. Ein wie ich finde sehr schönes Buch mit einem lustigen, traurigen und teilweise zum Nachdenken anregenden "Roadtrip", einem doch sehr glücklichen Ende für die Dalmatinerfamilie und für Cruelle de Vill gerechten Schluß. Es sei soviel sei davon verraten, daß es sich deutlich von dem aus den Disney-Filmen unterscheidet.Leider ist das Buch nicht in deutscher Sprache erhältlich. Es soll mal eine deutsche Ausgabe gegeben haben, jedoch hab ich keine gefunden.
A book about the lives of two dogs and their owners and what happen to their puppies when they get stolen.
Most people are probably familair with the Disney adaption of this book. However, even I was surprised at how much Disney cut out of the film version.In Dodie Smith's book, Pongo, Missis, Perdita, and the 15 puppies take on dimensions only hinted at on the silver screen. We can feel Pongo's and Missis's agony as their children are stolen. We are with them as they cross England as they trek to Hell Hall to attempt a rescue before Cruella has the puppies skinned for fur coats. And everyone will shed a tear as, after days of trudging through the snow, avoiding the De Vil woman and local dog catchers, make it home in time for Christmas with the kindly help of a boxer and a removal van. This is a wonderful, charming book that you won't be able to put down and that you will find yourself coming back to again and again.
This book is amazing. It is very believeable although it is clearly fiction. This book is one of the best books I've read and believe me,I've read alot of books. Although Disney did a wonderful job on adapting the book, the movie can't do it justice, because, unless you want another three hour movie, you can't get all the details in. Like in the movie, Pongo and Missis (later know as Perdita) set out to find the pups. However, the book also has many sub-plots that the movie does not(ie. Mothers losing their kids and still loving them). It was the ovious thought put into the book that wasn't in the movie that inspired me to get the sequel, " The Starlight Barking", from amazon.com All in all, the book is a must have for dog lovers and those who liked the movie, you'll LOVE the book.
I am well on my way to reading this 101 times!! I started at age 11 and still enjoy it at age 33. Dodie Smith really makes you believe in the dogs and the world she has created. I often use 101 Dalmations as my "de-stress" book during stressful times in my life or if I have just finished an intense, or emotionoally charged book. This can be read alone or to your children. Don't let your children grow up with only the Disney version, introduce them to the REAL 101 Dalmations.
This book is quite different from the Disney movie, and therefore much better. Pongo's wife is not named Perdita, but Missus even though there is a Perdita here. Some of the names of the dogs have been changed as well and there are many events that happen here that didn't in the movie. Dodie Smith is a very funny writer and she makes you feel as if you are one of the characters. Read this book!
This book, though much different than the Disney movies, is a must read for kids who love action and fantasy books. The story gives ideas that we don't own our pets, they own us (Which may be true in some cases). I love this book and enjoyed reading it alone and to my kids.
This book is a funny, incredibly imanginative book! I loved every word of it and couldn't put it down. There is so much more to the story then the Disney movie! Buy this book!
