Okay I picked this book for a challenge here on Goodreads but now I want the whole set of these books I'm loving these covers and they are too expensive right now Maybe get one a month I will also have to admit I have never seen the Nutcracker on tv I might have seen bits of one when I was little Yeah I never thought I would be into the play movies whatever but now I want to watch them I will also admit that this book creeped me out in the beginning when they were describing the sharp little teeth Lol I know I can make a horror movie out of anything But Seriously ↓He comes to life for little Marie and then it just gets all kinds of cray However Marie could not finish For when she pronounced Drosselmeier's name Friend Nutcracker's face twisted up devilishly and his eyes virtually emitted sparkling green prickles But the moment Marie tried to get properly released she was again viewed by the mournfully smiling face of honest Nutcracker And now she knew that it was the draft and the uickly blazing ray of the lamp that had totally distorted his featuresPfffft I'm going to have Nutcracker nightmares now Sweet little book and I hope to own the whole collection with these little cardinals on them one day This is a wonderful magical tale which I regret not having read as a child Translations are as a rule pretty bad I feel like this translation did not do the original story justice at all and a lot of the magic had seeped through the cracks as a result The story itself has dark layers to it that the ballet does not possess It has a rather disjointed flow to it and altogether it is a fairly obvious story of a time long ago when attractiveness was the most important uality in any thing However the most important thing about this story is that it was the inspiration for the ballet and that makes it expressly priceless and worthy of than five measly golden stars The difference of the ballet to the story is utterly necessary and makes the original story even dear Differences are what make adaptations not their strict adherence to their founders You can clearly follow the magical path clearly feel the Christmas spirit and clearly find joy in the book but from a personal point of view only if you've seen the marvellous spectacle that is The Nutcracker balletFirst read 9th December 2016 3 stars Second read 19th December 2017 3 stars 5 stars for the illustrated editionBlog | Instagram | Twitter | Pinterest | Shop | Etsy Is it just me or does anyone else think that ETA Hoffmann and just for the fun of it L Frank Baum were on some kind of drugs when they wrote their most popular books? LOLI knew absolutely nothing going into this book Never saw a play Never saw a movie Had always heard about it but never gave it much thought That being said I must say that I was completely mesmerized What a delightful story So happy that I finally read the book Now I know I'll have to watch a movie or see a play I'll never look at my nutcracker the same way again Merry Christmas everyone 🎄 25I think this would be a thrilling and fun story for children and one that comes with some good opportunities for important discussions That being said the way the story was presented really didn't hold my attention well at all It was okay the whole way through until the end I found the way it turned out uite creepy and odd view spoiler turns out the nutcracker turns back into the guy he was before he was cursed and he proposes to our protagonist Which fine But she's EIGHT That's weird Really weird hide spoiler Maurice Sendak did the illustrations for this edition I love them They are uirky and what you expect from MauriceThis is the full edition and it is night something you can read in a single bedtime story This is long This is also all about how things look Is someone pretty or not Marie sees the beauty on the inside over what is on the outside The nutcracker ballet focuses on the candyland part of the story and the beauty there The book spends much of the story on war heaven help us I mean it is a lot about fighting and war This is so 1800I think I prefer the ballet to the book and I did enjoy this Having a shorter version you can read in a night is nice too Still I'm glad I finally read this whole thing Merry Christmas I clearly remember that when I had to read ETA Hoffmann’s fairy tales for a course on German Romanticism I was taking during my undergraduate degree in 1986 at Mount Allison University in Sackville New Brunswick how strangely surprised I was at just how creepily uncanny and also how generally uite majorly different his 1816 Nußknacker und Mausekönig is from the main storyline of The Nutcracker ballet so universally well known and beloved on a global basis And yes our professor then told us that Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker ballet is in fact based on a loose French adaptation of Nußknacker und Mausekönig by Alexandre Dumas père his 1844 Histoire d’un casse noisette a story which is of course still vaguely similar to ETA Hoffmann’s original theme and content wise but leaves out all of the psychological uestions the possibility that Marie is actually emotionally afflicted and “seeing things” and eually has a standard fairy tale ending for Clara not Marie and her princely suitor that is pure and sweet fantasy and not the vacillation between fairy tale and reality found in Nußknacker und Mausekönig and where readers themselves are not even really all that sure exactly what is fantasy and what are Marie’s fever dreams and visionsNow while in 1986 I was actually a bit disappointed that Nußknacker und Mausekönig was so very different from The Nutcracker ballet storyline over the years and after multiple rereads I have come to absolutely and totally adore ETA Hoffmann’s poetic vision and in particular that there are no easy answers with regard to Marie and what she sees and experiences And yes indeed the entire not knowing what is reality and what is fantasy including the battle of the Nutcracker with the Mouse King I do consider this absolutely readable and most delightful as an adult reader But honestly if I had read if I had encountered Nußknacker und Mausekönig as a child much of ETA Hoffmann’s presented text would definitely have massively freaked me out and I do thus also totally understand why Alexandre Dumas père did such a very much less Hoffmannesue and standardly traditional fairy tale adaptation of Nußknacker und Mausekönig and why Tchaikovsky then also used the Dumas adaptation as the basis for his ballet ”You’ll have to suffer a lot if you want to take charge of a poor deformed Nutcracker Only you can rescue him Be strong and loyal” Synopsis ETA Hoffman forever ruins your favorite Christmas time ballet Try overcoming this sucker Tchaikovsky Biblio Babble Wonderful Christian Entertainment This Is Not Like a lot of people my family and I watch The Nutcracker every Christmas since it seems to be a holiday staple However either I’m totally missing something or I just wasn’t paying attention when we started watching it when I was a child but I don’t remember it being so darn dark in nature However after doing some research Tchaikovsky adapted it from not only Hoffman’s story but Alexandre Dumas adapted story as well So I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that we were given a very PG rated version of the story Cause let me tell you something children; this book is dark as HELL I was in a constant state of surprise at how such an innocent looking ballet show stemmed from such a dark and twisted storyDance of the Demented Mice I don’t uite know what mice might have ever done to ETA Hoffman for him to make them as vicious twisted and icky as he did in this story but they sure did something Cause the mice in this book are horrible If you already don’t like mice then you probably sure as hell won’t like the seven headed Mouse King Yes he does have seven One for each of the deadly sins I supposed And these mice are sneaky little turds who are extremely good at blackmail I mean they extort food puzzles and dolls from an innocent eight year old child And they really don’t do anything with their lootCGI Barbie Acted More Animated Then This Added to my Nutcracker fueled phase was the release of the horribly CGI animated but still classic Christmas special Barbie and the Nutcracker Re watching it with one of my nieces the animation was absolutely atrocious with the characters moving and looking like they were chronically constipated However compared to the writing in this book they moved so fluidly The writing in this book was perhaps the biggest downfall for me It was just so boring that I had trouble finding the willpower to finish this book even though it’s only a little over 100 pages The narration style is very off and waivers from first to third perspective which is exceedingly hard to doThe Words No Bookworm Wants to Hear The ballet is better There; I said it Without the wooden writing driving the narrative the story feels alive with both the ballet and even the animated specials I also believe that the magic of the story and the visuals of both the Christmas season and the Nutcracker land or whatever the hell it’s called comes off a lot better visually rather than in written word form in this case Hoffman’s writing just bogged it all down and I wasn’t able to feel or see the magic of the wondrous Christmas season that he wanted to impart on usWas This Just a Wet Dream? Perhaps the most disturbing thing about this novel isn’t the killer mice that will haunt your nightmares or the creepy human that is supposed to be the kindly Drosselmeier Nah it’s what happens at the end of the book when a certain nephew of a certain Drosselmeier shows up And it’s well I don’t want to give too much of it away However I found the creep level in this book to be reaching maximum proportions So view spoilerthe nephew of Drosselmeier is the Nutcracker who has turned back into human form He then proposes marriage to Marie who accepts This would be fine if it weren’t for the fact that SHE’S EIGHT FREAKIN’ YEARS OLD Y’ALL hide spoiler The Nutcracker Prince with Keifer Sutherland as the voice of Nutcracker was one of my favorite childhood movies and is still a favorite to this day When I realized it was based on a short story that also inspired the ballet obviously I had to read itI'm not a fan of Where the Wild Things Are and I wasn't too impressed with Sendak's weird Labyrinth like tale Outside Over There because there was no Jareth in it obviously But I wanted to read this version because Auntie J said it was the best version ever I actually read another version of this tale and was less than impressed I figured it was just a bad translation but this version was uite similarThe illustrations were good but not good enough to make me swoon The story was not uite to my taste and in fact a bit weird If Marie was only seven at the beginning how did she get betrothed at the end? She would have been eight by the time they got marriedUnfortunately I don't think I'd be a fan of this story if it weren't for the movie version I love I'm not sure what it is about the movie that makes it so magical for me but certainly Tchaikovsky's beautiful music used throughout doesn't hurt Clara takes a much active role in the narrative than the book's Marie Also look how adorable Nutcracker isYes yes he's supposed to be ugly But a character voiced by Keifer Sutherland could never be uglyI don't think I'll be seeking out any written versions of this story but I am interested in the ballet and other movie versions Till now I've liked everything I've read by ETA Hoffmann and I don't understand why he isn't known and read seen also that he is important in literature seen that several important and famous authors took inspiration from his works What I above all like is his skill to mix magic fantasy and reality and also a bit of creepiness Till now in all his stories I was enraptured by this mix that at the end I wasn't able to say what was true and what was magic Also in this story till the end I didn't know if Marie really lived everything or if she only dreamt about it To be honest I didn't worry about it because thanks to Hoffmann's skill the dreamy kid that is in me came out so I absolutely believed Marie's story I think that the important thing reading such stories isn't that they have to be real but realistic though weird things happen I like it when an author has that special skill to make also weird happenings believable Usually I don't read fantasy but Hoffmann is one of those authors that make me enjoy also genres I never read because he makes fantasy become real His stories start with realism and only later he adds some magic insideThis isn't only a story for children also an adult may enjoy it And I don't think it's a Christmas story though the events happen during Christmas time; in my opinion some parts are maybe a little bit too dark to be read during ChristmasOnly 4 stars and not 5 because of the end view spoilerI was sure that Marie was a child 7 or so years old so I don't understand how it's possible that at the end she gets betrothed I don't think that all those years passed but only a few weeks from the beginning of the story hide spoiler
