Das fliegende Klassenzimmer

Erich Kästner selbst zählte seine klassische Internatsgeschichte um eine Handvoll frecher Lausbuben Das fliegende Klassenzimmer zu seinem besten Kinderbuch.

Die Kämpfe und Keilereien zwischen Gymnasiasten und Realschülern haben sich wohl seither nicht wesentlich verändert und auch die Jungs sind bis heute dieselben geblieben: Matthias, der ständig eine Semmel in der Hand ha

The first time I read this book was about 20 years ago, and I have loved the book ever since. Probably apart from my textbooks which, whether I like or not, I had to read repeatedly in high school and college, this is the book that I’ve been reading again and again from the first to the last page for most times.

The story is set in an all-male boarding school – or to be exact a Gymnasium called Johann-Sigismund in Germany. Unlike many other books about teens living in dorms, the story does not la
من با این کتاب این ادمی شدم که الان هستم..خوب یا بد...
و شاید سالها بعد کشفش کردم وقتی داشتیم با یه آدم دیگه درمورد اولین کتاب هامون حرف می زدیم..
این کتاب منه:)
اولین و شاید ماندگارترین(پس رابینسون کروزوئه مون چی؟ یا اون کتاب آوای وحش!؟..)
کلاس پرنده اولین ها بود.. مثل اولین عشق.. اولین بوس ..اولین آغوش..

Well, I know I like children book. They are all special for a person like me (who doesn't really want to grow up). But this book is so unique and the way Erich Kaestner wrote his dry humor in this book is really one of his kind.
You will meet the little Uli von Simmern, a wanna be a boxer Matthias Selbmann, the smartest Martin Thaler, the sarcastic Sebastian Frank and the author Johnny Trotz in this Germany boys boarding school story.
All of them are mixed up together. From funny story when Profes

وقتی بچه بودم یه بار مامانم کار داشت به برادرم گفت یه چیزی بده دست این که یه مدت صداش در نیاد.کلاس پرنده رو داد بهم خیلی خوب جواب داد

Another winner that should be better known outside of its home country. By the author of Emil and the Detectives, this story is just as enjoyable.

Bookended by a writer trying to come up with a Christmas story, the book is then set in a boarding school in Germany, with a period feeling of Tom Brown's Schooldays, Morpurgo's The War of Jenkins' Ear and Kipling's Stalky and Co as well as the fun of Harry Potter and Matilda.

It's a little adventure of the boys there, with stolen exercise books, a pla

یادش به خیر بچهگیها! یک جملهاش یادمه: آدم باید پوست کرگدن داشته باشه.
شخصیت ماتیاس خیلی دوستداشتنی بود. پسر قلدر و بزن بهادری که قلب رئوفی داره و دائم داره میخوره. وای چقدر هوس دوباره خوندن این کتابو کردم.
حتمن بخونین برای بچههاتونم بخونین برای خواهر برادراتونم بخونین و بخرین و لذت ببرین!

سیزده سالم بود که خوندمش ، از اون زمان یه 7 سالی میگذره ! شاید خیلی جاهاش یادم رفته باشه ولی اون حس قشنگش هنوز تو دلمه، یادمه که جقد لذت بردم.دوباره پیداش کردم، میخوام ببرم واسشون،میخوام بخوننش میخوام تو دلاشون بکارمش!
I had a bout of nostalgia the other day, and just had to read this again. Still love it, still cried.
Four stars for the heart-melting factor as the ending!:). I read the book for the first time years ago, its Indonesian translation, to be exact. The book is about a group of students in Johann-Sigismund Gymnasium, in the last days before their Christmas break. Erich Kastner was superb in creating so humanly characters, the plot is fantastic, and to this day I am still heartened by the boys' friendship. One question remains lingering on my mind, though: are the school principal and his long-lost ...more
Heart tugging story about friendship set in a boarding school with the relationships of the school boys contrasted with those of the school director and his eventually rediscovered friend.

It's overwhelmingly the story of how good deeds prompt others to do better and be better people, which makes it an appropriate Christmas book I suppose.

Erich Kastner's The Flying Classroom, was originally published in German in 1933. Last year I read (and enjoyed) his classic, Emil and the Detectives. So I was curious to see if The Flying Classroom would have the same charm.

Although The Flying Classroom had some memorable scenes, overall it was really disappointing. While this book will certainly appeal to an adult audience looking to relive older-styled stories, I doubt it will find much of an audience in the US in 2015.

But there are lots of p
This is my second time reading The Flying Classroom, I truly wish the reality of American schools could be just like what it is described in the fiction...but I guess the society is made up of difference people and things don't always go your way, so you have to learn to accept your surroundings in order to make yourself happy.

I love Erich Kästner. This particular book of his and another children's classic, Pünktchen und Anton, have long been on my perennial favorites list. Reading it today, you also get some incidental insight into life in Germany in the early 1930s.
شاید فکر کنید کتاب بچه هاست بندازینش اون ور
ولی من لحظه ای که شروع کردم به خوندنش رو هنوز یادم مونده و تا آخرش هم یادمه.
شخصیت اولش،جاناتان تروتس بزرگ ترین عشق زندگیمه و یه جورایی خوشحال شدم دیدم کسی راجع بهش چیزی نمی دونه
ولی خوب حیفه..

I've read this book as a child but it was such a pleasure to re-discover it with my children!:) Such a beautiful, touching, hearth-warming story!:)))

Çocuk kitabı gibi duran ancak yetişkinlerin de okuyabilecek bir kitap.Çünkü her birey okul yıllarında çeşitli tecrübeler edinmiş ve çeşitli olaylarla karşılaşmistir. Bu kitap da da zaman zaman kendi ilk okul lise yıllarını anımsatir. Kitabı okurken klasik okul yılları macerası gibi gelsene aslında ders alınacak kesitler yazar tarafından verilmiştir. Hababam sınıfına benzeyen bir sınıf havası vardır. Çocuklar tüm yaramazliklarina rağmen temiz ve dürüst anlatılmış. Çocukların farklı karakterleri v ...more
کلا کتابهای آقای کستنر برای بچه ها فوق العاده جذاب و گیرا هستند اما این کتاب بین همه ی اونا برای من یه چیز دیگه بود. حتی از خواهران غریب بیشتر دوستش داشتم. خیلی وقتا آرزو می کنم که کاش می شد الان تو این سن هم کتابی پیدا کنم که همون حس لذت ناب رو به من تزریق کنه اما متاسفانه نمی شه چون من دیگه از اون فضای کودکی و مدرسه دور شدم. موندم نویسنده چطور اینهمه از بچگیش رو یادش بوده و تو کتاب گنجونده. مثه نویسنده ی کتاب نیکلا کوچولو اما با طنز کمتر و غم و اندوه کودکانه ی بیشتر
Ich mochte die detaillierte Prügelei am Anfang überhaupt nicht, würde allein deswegen das Buch wohl keinem Kind vorlesen. Davon abgesehen mochte ich die Jungs (vor allem Matthias und Johnny) und ihren Hauslehrer sehr gern. Und was gibt es schöneres an Weihnachten als eine Weihnachtsgeschichte aus dem Internat für Kinder?

Kitabın adı "Uçan Sınıf" olunca ister istemez daha farklı, belki biraz fantastik bir kitap bekliyorsunuz. O yüzden bir Noel hikayesi okuduğumu farkedince biraz affalladım. Ama fena kitap değildi (özellikle çocuklar için). Özellikle yazarın önsözleri çok iyiydi:)
This wasn't bad but it wasn't amazing either, took awhile for me to get into it. The part at the start where he is tring to write a Christmas story is not interesting at all. I liked it when we finally got into the school. They seem an odd bunch of boys. Did German boys in the 30s really talk like that? They seemed to say adult things. It all got abit violent and the adult who knew about it (non-smoker) did nothing to stop it. Felt really sad for Martin when he couldn't go home for Christmas but ...more

I read a Hindi translation of Erich Kästner's "Das Fliegende Klassenzimmer" named "उड़ता हुआ सकूल" when I was 12 or 13 years old. I liked this book so much that I read it again and again!

The two Prologues are superb and leave you pondering over the issues raised. The story is about a boarding school and some of the students representing the rest of course ! Each one of them has a story of his own. Their sorrows, their joys and their commitments and their fears, their friendship, the student-teach
Már régen elszeretném olvasni mivel nagyon sok jót hallottam a könyvről. Az első része után nagyon gondolkoztam rajta, hogy elolvassam-e, mivel úgy tűnt, hogy ez egy tipikus fiúknak szóló könyv. De kitartottam és mondhatom megérte, nagyon kellemes fordulatot vett a történet. Nem szégyellem a végén meg is könnyeztem a meghatottságtól.
A genuinely heart-warming story.

Another great classic I'd missed out and caught up on with an adult head. Not sure if I really liked it that much. It's cute and all, but I think there are too many story threads for the short volume. Also, I couldn't help being reminded of another school-boy classic from Hungary, which I happened to read as a kid. It's a bit older than this one, and the focus is entirely on the two rivaling youth gangs.
هنوز بعد از سالها، این کتاب برایم خاطرانگیز است. وقتی چند وقت پیش صحبتش شد، به شدت دلم برای اینکتاب تنگ شد و حتماً در آینده نزدیک دوباره آن را می خوانم تا به قولی که به نویسنده اش در ابتدای کتاب دادم، عمل کرده باشم. کتاب بسیار مناسبی برای نوجوانان است. به نظرم در میان کتابهای مخصوص نوجوانان نویسنده یک سر و گردن از بقیه بالاتر است. مثلاً کتاب «خواهران غریب» به پای این کتاب نمی رسد.
کلاس پرنده، کتاب رویاهام بود. در 10 سالگی این کتاب را خوندم و پس از اونهم بارها و بارها و بارها کتاب را خوندم و با این بچه ها خندیدم و گریه کردم.
کتابی فوق العاده دوست داشتنی که هرگز کهنه نمیشه.
عاشق اون تیکه هایی هستم که در اوج داستان، اریش کستنر یادش میافته از خاطراتش و اب و هوا شروع به تعریف کنه. کتاب من ترجمه آقای علی پاکبین است و چاپ مرداد 68.

Buku ini sangat berkesan : berbicara tentang persahabatan, kesetiaan, kasih, dan semangat Natal.
Pokoknya wajib dibaca deh!

“Трябва да се научите твърдо да преглъщате ударите, както се изразяват боксьорите. Трябва да се научите да ги преглъщате и да ги смилате. Инак още при първата плесница, която ви залепи животът, ще бъдете „гроги“. Защото боксьорските ръкавици на живота са дяволски големи, момчета. Ако изядеш една такава плесница, без да си подготвен за нея, достатъчно е след това само някоя от малките стайни мушици да кихне, за да се проснеш с цялата си дължина.” 0 likes
