    Outside of religious texts, The Adventures of Pinocchio is the most translated book in the world It s now printed in over 300 languages and continues to be one of the best selling books ever published Surprised I was I guess I assumed Disney s movie had long ago made the book irrelevant Clearly it hasn t.And for good reason Carlo Collodi s original 1883 text reads as sparkling and fresh as anything published today His moral lessons are abundantly clear and emphasized and re emphasized thr Outside of religious texts, The Adventures of Pinocchio is the most translated book in the world It s now printed in over 300 languages and continues to be one of the best selling books ever published Surprised I was I guess I assumed Disney s movie had long ago made the book irrelevant Clearly it hasn t.And for good reason Carlo Collodi s original 1883 text reads as sparkling and fresh as anything published today His moral lessons are abundantly clear and emphasized and re emphasized through a variety of zany situations Some of which are well represented by the iconic cartoon, but numerous others can only be found from the source Collodi had an extremely clear vision for what Pinocchio was meant to represent and his metaphors always work The way he showcases Pinocchio s inability to become a real boy until gaining education, common sense, and compassion is stark and startling The transformation into a donkey, for example, is significantlyeffective and disturbing in the book than in the movie And let s be honest, it s creepy enough in the movie.There s also something beautiful about Pinocchio s constant backsliding He knows why bad things happen to him, he understands where he goes wrong, and yet he keeps making the same mistakes time and time again This sentiment might be why the book resonates so well across cultures and with audiences young and old It s frustrating to see him struggle with basic decision making, and yet we can t help but relate The story may be meant for children, but it s adult readers who will likely be moved to tears when the dim witted marionette finally comes of age.If you re looking to add a classic into your reading mix, Pinocchio is not one to be missed

    I don t have kids I read this for pleasure as a 32 year old man And, surprisingly, I definitely enjoyed it As I made my way through the book, though, I kept trying to picture what a kid would think It s very weird VERY weird, and kind of dark too I m not very familiar with the Disney version of this story, but I m sure Pinocchio doesn t murder that singing cricket with a hammer like he does on page 13 And things like the growing of his nose when he lies are not major plot points in the bo I don t have kids I read this for pleasure as a 32 year old man And, surprisingly, I definitely enjoyed it As I made my way through the book, though, I kept trying to picture what a kid would think It s very weird VERY weird, and kind of dark too I m not very familiar with the Disney version of this story, but I m sure Pinocchio doesn t murder that singing cricket with a hammer like he does on page 13 And things like the growing of his nose when he lies are not major plot points in the book at all In fact, it only happens twice and both times it is addressed for only slightlythan a paragraph Basically, the story is about an insolent little marionette who through folly, disobedience, and naivety is subjected to a constant slew of misfortunes, each oneridiculous and over the top than the last And although the overarching moral to this tale that being GO TO SCHOOL YOU DUMB LITTLE DONKEYS is rather reductive and simplistic, the story is odd enough and the imagination of the author is unruled and unbound enough that the well worn lesson is not a hindrance.Here s a personal note I love books translated from other languages into English Sentence structure and word choice are often juxtaposed and arranged in ways that you normally don t get to see when reading things originally written in English Part of this is undoubtedly due to the translator as they struggle to preserve the story in its original form, and part of it is due to the fact that often there is often not an analogous term for certain words or phrases It creates a certain patchwork of language that, for whatever reason, tickles me Almost as if the charm lies in its sloppiness, or imperfection I actually downloaded two different translations of this to my Kindle and read the first chapter of each before deciding on which translator s voice I preferred.In the end, I can t really say if your kids will like this All I can say is I did And I m kind of like a giant kid

    As is the case with many great and memorable children s tales, Pinocchio is predominated by the threat of violence and death At one point the incorrigible puppet is actually lynched by a Fox and a Cat who are after his gold coins The Talking Cricket the model for Disney s Jiminy Cricket is killed by Pinocchio, using a mallet to smash him against the wall, as early as chapter four The Cricket s primary offense Giving some lame moralistic advice to the anarchic puppet The Talking Cricket w As is the case with many great and memorable children s tales, Pinocchio is predominated by the threat of violence and death At one point the incorrigible puppet is actually lynched by a Fox and a Cat who are after his gold coins The Talking Cricket the model for Disney s Jiminy Cricket is killed by Pinocchio, using a mallet to smash him against the wall, as early as chapter four The Cricket s primary offense Giving some lame moralistic advice to the anarchic puppet The Talking Cricket was a social conservative, apparently Later the magical fairy, a strange deus ex machina with blue hair and an even bluer temperament, is introduced as the ghost of a dead child I could go on and on, but you get the picture here If you don t behave, children, and do your schoolwork, you ll probably suffer ghastly and various permutations of misery, including but not limited to being eaten by a giant shark The tension lies in Collodi s celebration of in Rebecca West s hyperanalytic parlance transgression set against the book s explicit moralizing and voluble tsk tsking and pooh poohing Although the anonymous narrator states outright that peril and misfortune are the consequences of bad behavior, Collodi makes Pinocchio s adventures oddly exhilarating One wonders if the story is less proscriptive than it is a subtle lamentation of the freedoms we must surrender to become human Collodi s world is troubling, to say the least We are conditioned to expect the magical in storytelling so long as there is an internal consistency Collodi, however, doesn t bother with logic Why does Pinocchio seem human and vulnerable in some predicaments but resilient and indomitable in others Why are the fairy s powers arbitrary and situational Why does Pinocchio turn into a donkey other than in the service of a metaphor I ll admit I m a stickler for details, but the simplicity and surprising humor of Pinocchio distracts me from the fundamental realization that Collodi has created a world without rules that is overly indebted to coincidence and or providence In other words, I liked it despite everything

    This was a challenge and a treat reading the original story of Pinocchio in Italian It s been a long time since I saw the Disney movie, but it was obvious to me that Disney, er, Disney fied the story quite a bit The original tale is a lot darker and a lot funnier I loved the fight with Gepetto and the woodcutter at the beginning, where they are tearing off each other s wigs Pinocchio is indeed a rascal, a scamp, and all the other things they call him I think I would have throw him in the This was a challenge and a treat reading the original story of Pinocchio in Italian It s been a long time since I saw the Disney movie, but it was obvious to me that Disney, er, Disney fied the story quite a bit The original tale is a lot darker and a lot funnier I loved the fight with Gepetto and the woodcutter at the beginning, where they are tearing off each other s wigs Pinocchio is indeed a rascal, a scamp, and all the other things they call him I think I would have throw him in the fire a long time ago I was also shocked to laughter when we meet Grillo Parlante, the Talking Cricket who becomes Jiminy Cricket in the movie, and Pinocchio immediately gets tired of his advice, throws a hammer at the cricket, and smashes him flat against the wall, killing the poor insect instantly I must say, I had the same urge when Jiminy Cricket started to sing in the movie Talking animals, ridiculous incidents and escapes I loved it Would have been an easy read in English, but even in Italian it didn t take me very long Well worth checking out

    I know I shouldn t feel so strongly about a children s book character from two centuries ago but PINOCCHIO IS LITERALLY ABOUT TO CATCH THOSE HANDS I was prepared for a tale full of nostalgia and heart warming moments, instead I got this clusterfuck of a children s tale I totally forgot that Pinocchio was such a stupid ass hoe or maybe his portrayal in the Disney movie is just muchfavorable , and thus I wasannoyed than anything whilst reading about him making the same mistakes ove I know I shouldn t feel so strongly about a children s book character from two centuries ago but PINOCCHIO IS LITERALLY ABOUT TO CATCH THOSE HANDS I was prepared for a tale full of nostalgia and heart warming moments, instead I got this clusterfuck of a children s tale I totally forgot that Pinocchio was such a stupid ass hoe or maybe his portrayal in the Disney movie is just muchfavorable , and thus I wasannoyed than anything whilst reading about him making the same mistakes over and over again.Like, for real, Pinocchio was such a selfish and dumb little fucker, his father Gepetto truly deserved better I am aware of the fact that Pinocchio the book, that is was meant as a tale of morale and reform for children to learn from You can literally see the accusatory finger of Collodi pointing at children and warning them of the perils of disobedience and hedonism Nicki Minaj and Cardi B who are both pushing the message to their young audience to stay the fuck in school are modern day Collodis, just saying Nonetheless, Pinocchio and his unfaltering ways were a pain in the ass to read about He literally gets Gepetto into prison, then sells Gepetto s only coat to attend a fucking puppet show talk about questionable life choices , he believes two strangers who tell him of a Field of Miracles where you can bury your gold and overnight it will multiply guess what happens, Pinocchio buries his last gold only to find it gone the next day who would ve thought and then he just continues to disrespect every elderly person who wants to give him a piece of advice Pinocchio deserved every bad thing that came for him Even though I was somewhat surprised by the brutality of this children s tale, I was rooting for Pinocchio to die throughout And let me tell you, there was plenty of opportunity for that at the beginning he sleeps on the stove and burns off his feet, unluckily, Gepetto makes him new ones Damn it Later, the Cat and the Fox hang him in a tree Unfortunately, the Fairy rescues him Ugh Then Pinocchio has the audacity to refuse the medication she got for him and gets a mortal fever which he, you guessed it, again survives Why tho Wanna teach kids to take their fucking medicine without complaining Let the Burattino die, you don t get a messageclearer than that He is caught in a weasel trap, he is kneaded into dough by a weird fisherman, he is turned into a donkey and literally swallowed by a whale Jonah is quaking in his seat and he gets out of all of these traps unscathed I was so mad Still am, not gonna lie I know this review hasn t been super serious but I justify my low rating, above all, by the fact that I wouldn t read this story to any children The tone is way too preachy don t lie, stay in school, be nice to your parents, work hard, bla bla bla , Pinocchio way too annoying, there s too much senseless violence in the story and in the end, the final message that is pushed when Pinocchio after being reformed turns into a proper boy just pisses me off In my humble opinion, he should ve stayed a Burattino as the world of Pinocchio is inhabited by speaking animals, fairies and other magical stuff , he didn t need to become human to get the point across, but maybe that s just me Children literally shouldn t have to change who they are what makes them unique , they should change their actions if they re disrespectful but that s it

    I have been slowly reading a stack of children s classics to my twins thus far to combat the poor movie adaptations that are out there , but I have been less than impressed.I found Peter Pan both the character and the story insufferable Charlie and the Chocolate Factory offended me ideologically and The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe was too heavy handed So I had little hope for Carlo Collodi s Pinnochio.Even though I had been slightly disabused of my belief that Pinnochio would be overly I have been slowly reading a stack of children s classics to my twins thus far to combat the poor movie adaptations that are out there , but I have been less than impressed.I found Peter Pan both the character and the story insufferable Charlie and the Chocolate Factory offended me ideologically and The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe was too heavy handed So I had little hope for Carlo Collodi s Pinnochio.Even though I had been slightly disabused of my belief that Pinnochio would be overly moralistic by The Old Trouts brilliant stage adaptation they re a Canadian puppet theatre company based out of Calgary , and despite the fact that Disney s Classic adaptation maintains most of the creepier elements from Collodi s classic, I approached Pinnochio with serious doubt and attitude.I almost dared it to be good And shock of shocks it actually was Yes there s a talking cricket, but his name isn t Jiminy and he doesn t sit on Pinnochio s shoulder and act as his conscience Yes there is a thread of moralism running through the book, and yes some of the things Collodi teaches, such as his focus on one s duty to obey one s parents, run contrary to what I believe, the book actually steers clear of preachiness and simply lets a fun story unfold in a fun way with a couple of decent lessons cropping up here and there.Playland known as Pleasure Island in Disney parlance is almost as creepy as Walt s uber spooky version, particularly the slimy man who rounds up the kiddies and turns them into donkeys Monstro is a gigantic, mile long Shark with no name, rather than a massive whale The blue haired fairy is a huge character, farimportant than the talking cricket, and she can change shape into a goat at will And if these elements weren t enough fun there are times when Pinnochio is collared and tied to a dog house to watch hens, hanged from a tree to die in the forest, nearly used as kindling, has his donkey flesh eaten away by nasty little fish, and is even thrown in prison by a Judge who happens to be a talking Ape.E Harden s translation seems superb and is eminently readable although my friend Manny might no better how accurate a translation it is , and even though the book comes in at a pretty steep 200 pages impressive for a kids book it never tires its reader or his listeners My kids wantedevery time we stopped for the night, and if Collodi leaves the kids wantingthat has to be a good thing Our next stop is Alice in Wonderland, but I may hunt down someCollodi He deserves to be read

    Now I do realise that with regard to Carlo Collodi s 1883 novel Pinocchio there is indeed and like with many 19th century novels for childrenthan a bit of moralising and so called teaching moments

actually seems to rest rather on the surface so to speak, and yes indeed, if one actually delves a bit deeper and thoroughly reads between the proverbial lines of Pinocchio, alongside of the moral dictates admonishing children to listen to their parents, to stay in school, to not tell lies etc lest terrible punishments happen, there are alsothan enough criticisms of both society in general and precisely those parental attitudes which on the surface of Pinocchio do seem oh so cut and dry and unassailable For while Pinocchio is most definitely mischievous and full of the Devil so to speak, I for one have also never really found his pranks all that inherently viciously nasty, and yes, quite a number of the punishments meted out against Pinocchio for simply wanting to enjoy his childhood have therefore always felt so extreme and exaggerated to and for me that I for one at least as an adult reader now consider much of Pinocchio to be rather parodistic and satiric in nature at least down below so to speak and as such, the trials and tribulations Pinocchio must endure are also in my opinion often so over done that they are also and yeslike a condemnation and chastisement of society, of the fact that society seems to consider children as objects and as such not only totally under the control of grown ups, of family, teachers and so on and so on but also as basically regarded and approached as exploitable resources for in Pinocchio, it becomes rather obvious that his father Gepetto, and unlike in the Disney movie of the same name, is first and foremost carving his little puppet boy in order for it him to work for and do his bidding, to be a tool to be made use of for monetary gain and not really because Gepetto is lonely and desires company, that he actually wants a son for emotional reasons And therefore, while I do very much recognise the late 19th century morality tale aspects and that they are most definitely always present and accounted for in Pinocchio, for one, they truly are a sign of the times, of the 19th century, and for two, as I hope to have shown above, there is most certainly and especially considerablyto Carlo Collodi s children s classic than that, that with Pinocchio, there are multiple layers of intent and thematics and yes, while if one only peruses the novel simply and without reading all too deeply and intensely, the educational, the message heavy admonishments and criticisms do abound, below that there also rests and equally flows what I can and will only call a critical appraisal and dissection of the same and really, for me, the by Collodi always and continuously presented arguments in Pinocchio regarding the power and importance schooling and education, these are not just the dictates of society, of family, but are actually and yes in fact also a way that the young can, if they consider the latter as something inherently positive and important for their own personal development and self growth, an important and necessary tool and a resource to advance themselves and even perhaps end up having power and influence over and above society and the generally quite restricting moral mandates imposed by it, in the form of family members, teachers and other similar authority figures.And finally, if you are going to be reading Carlo Collodi s Pinocchio in the Penguin Classics edition which I do very much recommend , I would strongly suggest that you do NOT read Jack Zipes excellent and informative introduction until AFTER you have actually finished perusing the novel itself, so as to avoid possible spoilers and really, I personally do wish that Penguin Classics and other such series of classic literature would consider not having the analyses of the featured novels etc appear as introductions, but as afterwords, for almost all of the introductions I have read to date in the Penguin Classics books series ALWAYS tend to contain quite a large number of content spoilers and indeed, they also can very easily influence how one then decides to read and approach what follows, which I definitely do find potentially problematic in and of itself, as especially and in particular one s first perusal of a given piece of literature should in my opinion be free of and from the musings of others, at least as much as possible

    Seriously, I never thought the real story of Pinocchio would be somewhat cruel and violent like this I don t think it is appropriate for children when it s known as a classic story for children It s similar with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz which adapted differently for the movie So, what s wrong with these classic authors for children literature Was their lives full of nightmare their imagination became dark and twisted And why Mastro Geppetto was described as a grumpy and vicious old man he Seriously, I never thought the real story of Pinocchio would be somewhat cruel and violent like this I don t think it is appropriate for children when it s known as a classic story for children It s similar with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz which adapted differently for the movie So, what s wrong with these classic authors for children literature Was their lives full of nightmare their imagination became dark and twisted And why Mastro Geppetto was described as a grumpy and vicious old man here I thought he was compassionate especially to children because he didn t have one This is what hurt me the most While I enjoyed the plot of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the adventures of Pinocchio fell kinda confusing for me There was a storyteller in the beginning of the story I bet he s Mr Collodi himself To me, a storyteller never really prepares the plot, so this is why this story became unreasonable, disorganized and messy at some point There was no consistency At least it has moral values spread everywhere and they are very specific Easy to understand for children I like the bigger picture of this classic story, but i was disappointed with how the story went That s all And although I gave an unsatisfying review for this popular classic book, I still love Pinocchio as how I remember it from my childhood mind.Review bahasa Indonesia bisa dibaca di blogku
