This is a coming of age story of Remi Barbarin a 6-y/o Italian boy who is adopted by a poor couple when they find him abandoned in front of government building where Mr. Barbarin works. However, Mr. Barbarin's motive of adopting him is with the hope that someday the infant baby in silk clothes (hint that the baby's parents are rich), will be asked back by his parents in exchange of a huge money. Years passed and when Mr. Barbarin feels that it will no longer happen, he sells the boy to a perform ...more

This is the wonderfully moving story of an orphan who hopes to one day find his true family. There are many interesting subplots as well about the general condition of orphan children throughout 19th France, very much like Dickens revealed similar mistreatment of youth through his highly critical and scrutinizing enlightenment.
This story is bound to have you shed a few tears. If you ever the opportunity, watch the tv mini-series of the same title.
If a great tale for children, it remains an equal

My mother read this series to us when we were very young. We didn't have a television so our nightly reading sessions were like the best possible TV series. I remember begging and crying for her not to stop! She developed character voices and accents. It was as real as anything.
I think little Remi, orphaned to the circus with his monkey friend really influenced my gypsy lifestyle when I grew older. Reading out loud, try it sometime. It's a very different experience.
These books were antiques when

I think I read this when I was about 9. It was my very first novel. I remember telling my mum I was sick so I could stay home from school and finish it.
Because it's the novel that made me fall in love with reading, it gets 5 stars from me :)

Hector Malot wrote Nobody's Boy back in the 1870s. It's a very slow, dreamy story, completely lacking in the speed and cliff-hanging and spectacle that define modern writing. I suppose a lot of readers would find his story boring or somewhat maudlin, but I found myself entranced by the combination of word precision and a sensation of something akin to gliding slowly down a river. A river in the French countryside, of course, apropos to the story, gleaming with lazy summer sunlight.

Malot's use of

Tadinya saya pikir ini buku sedih, semacam Ratapan Anak Tiri gitu, makanya nunda-nunda terus bacanya, karena lagi malas sedih-sedih...

Tapi ternyata, dengan segala hormat kepada penulisnya, dan kepada Tony & Maureen Wheeler yang punya the Lonely Planet, kalau buku ini dikasih sub judul, maka tulisannya adalah Traveling Across Europe on A Shoestring :) Bener lho, waktu baca gw merasa ini semacam buku perjalanan yang sekarang lagi ngetrend banget. Prancis, Inggris, Swiss, dijajal Remi hanya den

This book, though not originally written as a children's classic, has been considered one. This is only one of the traits it shares with Dickens' Oliver Twist. Both novels chronicle the tragic wanderings of foundlings whose only desire is to belong somewhere. In both cases, the boys are pursued by those who wish them ill and in both cases, they are nearly sucked into a life of crime. Remi, though as unlucky as Oliver, receives more kindness and assistance, generally speaking, than his English co ...more

I first saw this as a cartoon when I was 8 years old.. it broke my heart.

I read it 15 years later.. It broke it all over again.
I had to stop at several points to take a breather and dry my eyes.
Even as I write this review I find it difficult to keep my tears at pay.

Remi is a sweet little child who'll capture your heart from his very first moment.. From the very first line I was hooked *I knew I would be since I dearly loved the cartoon, but to read is it, it's a whole another experience*..

Скиталчеството като начин на живот - “Без дом” на Хектор Мало
http://www.knigolandia.info/2011/04/b...

“Без дом” е привидно каноничен за жанра си роман. Сираче бива подхвърляно от вихрите на съдбата години наред, докато не открива истинските си родители, които неизбежно се оказват богати и прекрасни и то може да помогне на всички добри хора, които е срещнало сред скитанията си.

И макар че определено е трябвало да я прочета на много по-ранна възраст (когато думите “имала по-голям син, който изчезн

I really liked the book!! I remember watching the cartoon version of it when I was about 9 years old ( in the cartoon version rémi was not a boy, but a girl, and I don't know why they did that but my sister says that they probably did because a girl would bring more sympathy than a boy) , so the story of remi -boy or girl- marks a big periode of my life. the only reproach I have about the book is that the caracters seem to be monodimensional. the villain is pure evil, and the good people are pur ...more

Touchy feely. I read it as a kid and loved it. I would have rated it 5 stars if I'd been here on GRs at that time.

I'd say this book is perfect for children, until they grow up and realize there's something wrong with the ending. Malot made a point in Remi's sudden wealth at the end, after all the struggles and tears. The way Remi uses his unexpected, ladylike, generous mother's money to fix things made me feel as if he cannot bring happiness to others if he's not rich.

This is my favorite book in all the world. In fourth grade my teacher read this aloud to the class every day after lunch, and it opened my eyes to a whole new type of literature. I have read it to my children, and it is one of their favorites as well.

I read this book countless times when I was younger, and little Remi went straight to my heart. You really feel for him and want him to be happy. It's still a book I pick up every now and then, and one of those stories I will never forget.

This is actually my favorite book. I read it for the first time years ago when I was in elementary school(I’m now 22) and ever since I've re-read it quite a few times… I totally recommend it to EVERYONE, not because it’s MY fav book, but because the story is wonderful, it never stops being up to date and it ALWAYS manages to make you feel the same things… I can go read it right now, and I will STILL experience the same sadness, happiness, anger, surprise, hearbreak… I will STILL burst into tears ...more

Salah satu buku klasik yang mengisahkan tentang pengembaraan seorang anak yang hidup sebatang kara berjudul “Nobody's Boy”. Cerita ini bersetting Eropa sekitar akhir abad ke-19, yang mengisahkan kehidupan seorang anak bernama Remy. Di usianya 8 tahun, Remy baru mengetahui bahwa dirinya adalah seorang anak pungut dari keluarga miskin di desa Chavanon, desa termiskin di Prancis. Ibu angkatnya, Nyonya Baberin, merawat Remy seorang diri dengan penuh kasih sayang, selayaknya ibu kandungnya sendiri.

Buku ini mengingatkanku pada lagu Nobody's Child.
'I am nobody's child..I am nobody's child.. Nobody wants me, I am nobody's child'
Lagu yang sedih, namun berulang kudengarkan lewat putaran kaset di tape kala kecil, siapa lagi penggemarnya jikalau bukan bapak-ibu ? Ya, mereka berdua menggemari musik, sehingga hari-hari di rumah atau mobil (kala masih ada) dipenuhi dengan alunan irama.

Before the age of 10, this was my favorite book of all times. I read it about twenty times between the ages of 9 and 12, or something like that, and I cried every single damned time at it. It's impossible how much feeling I got from that book!

Remi was and I think he still is the perfect child character in a book! And Vitalis was such a good man.. (view spoiler) I wanted to go around the world and have three dogs and a m

My father read this to me when I was only three years old. My mother told him I was too young to understand but he disagreed. Now it's his favourite anecdote to tell about little me, how I was so intrigued by the story and how I asked him halfway through: daddy, I don't know why, but I can't stop crying?
This story was one of the first books that has made me love stories for the rest of my life. Beautiful!

Seviyorum işte böyle romanları! Sizi alıyor, bambaşka diyarlara, mekanlara götürüyor. Kitap içerisinde yaşanan duyguları size öyle bir aktarıyor ki, kitap bittiğinde ne kadar yorulduğunuzu ama nasıl güzel bir yolculuğa çıktığınızı düşünüyorsunuz.

Kitap adından da anlaşılacağı üzere kimsesiz bir çocuk olan Remi’nin romanı. Bulunmuş çocuk olan Remi’nin yolculuğu ona bakmaya karar veren ailenin evinde başlar. Sonrasında başına gelen olaylar ile (olaylara dair söyleyeceğim en ufak

Am citit cartea cand aveam 11 ani. Am primit-o ca premiu la scoala. Tin minte ce usor dadeam paginile si cat ma asemanam cu Remi. A fost cartea mea preferata si ma bucur ca am avut ocazia sa o citesc. Am fost trista si am ras odata cu Remi, traind aventurile lui si am ramas cu sufletul la gura asteptand sa vad cum isi va gasi drumul spre familia lui.

This is one of my absolute favorite books from my childhood! I think my Mom purchased this for me in a thrift store when I was very young and it became an instant favorite of mine. I still own that same copy and I return to it from time to time when I tire of the "new-age" stuff. It is an excellent story of a young boy's journey to reunite with his family.

Gelezen in de vertaling van August Willemsen. Het boek mag dan wel uit 1878 zijn, het is zeker niet ouderwets of achterhaald.

Remi wordt van zijn pleegmoeder Barbarin weggekocht, wat een dieptepunt in zijn leven lijkt, maar wat gelukkig uitmondt in gelukkige jaren met Vitalis, het aapje Jolie-Coeur en de honden.

De rest van de reis van Remi is vol ups en downs als hij mensen die hij als familie beschouwt verliest en steeds (bijna) alleen achterblijft. Gelukkig ontmoet hij steeds weer mensen die

this is an amazing/extraordinary/spectacular book. It's about the adventure of Remi - a homeless boy. He travelled with his boss - Vitalis. There are so many breath-taking and heartbreaking scene. When Vitalis died,i felt so depressed like Remi :( Beautifully written! Such a must-read classic for everyone!

I liked this book, but it has parts that didn't age well. It was originally written as a critique of french society and as such has the protagonist encounter people from all kinds of backgrounds. That part of the story still feels important and fresh to me.

The ending, however, is a child of its time. I find it much less satisfying than the ending of the french tv miniseries done in the eighties, which I saw as a child and which I still love very much.

Also, the books age is noticeable from the w

Một trong những truyện đầu tiên mình đọc. Vẫn nhớ mỗi mùa hè lại ngồi ở balcon tầng ba, đọc từng trang sách. Suốt những mùa hè cấp 2 là như vậy, mà không hiểu sao lần nào đọc lại cũng khóc. Một câu chuyện giản dị, mộc mạc nhưng lấp đầy tâm hồn thơ bé khi đó.
