You'll have to look up words from time to time but I promise it will be worth the effort because it will teach you the words that add colour, texture and magic and really gives a language wings.(less)

Manny was working late one evening when he received an unexpected visitor. He was an old man with white hair and gold-rimmed glasses, curiously dressed in a lace-embroidered doublet and a periwig, and he was carrying a book.

"Greetings," said the visitor. "I think you should read this."

"What is it?" asked Manny irritably. People were always asking him to read things. "I don't really have time right now. I need to get this software problem fixed for tomorrow. And then I have an article to write an

Momo is a classic story that is known as a children's book, yet I believe that adults may even glean more from its reading than younger folk. Momo is written by Michael Ende, the author who is most known in the US for having written The Neverending Story. When I was younger, and my mother ran an independent children's bookstore, she ordered a case of this book, and gave a copy to all of her friends and colleagues.

This is a modern day fairytale, about a little girl named Momo, who moves into a ru

Oh my... you haven't read this book? You poor dear. I suspect that the reason why this book is not read in the United States is because the grey men are working very hard to keep it off the shelves. It is moments, not time, that is precious.

You cannot, repeat: cannot, go into this book with the expectations of "hard," realist fiction. Then again, if you know anything about Michael Ende (the author of the Never Ending Story), you won't.

Momo is one of those rare books that would do well in a fourth-grade classes, but is also strangely releveant to adults. The story centers around a girl named Momo who took residence in an ancient, abandoned amphitheater in an unnamed town, which is populated by a series of people who do small-town jo

Diese Geschichte kann immer wieder erzählt und gelesen werden, denn die kleine Momo kämpft gegen die Hektik des Alltags, die jeden Erwachsenen irgendwann im Laufe seines Lebens trifft.

In einer fiktiven Welt, irgendwann, irgendwo, taucht Momo am Rande einer Stadt auf und bezieht eine verlassene Ruine eines Amphittheaters. Mit nichts als dem, was sie am Leib trägt hat sie genau das zu bieten, was die Menschen so sehr brauchen: sie hat Zeit, ihnen zuzuhören. Und zwar so aufmer

Momo ci pensò un po' su e infine disse: «Se mi ricordo bene, ci sono sempre stata».
Riguardo a un'introduzione: Se c'è una cosa che io ho amato sempre, sin da bambina, sono le storie. I miei giocattoli preferiti erano le bambole, perché le loro vite le inventavo io; mi piacevano anche i cartoni animati che davano in televisione, mini racconti di dieci minuti da divorare tra una pappetta e l'altra.

Pertama kali mendengar kata “Momo” adalah ketika saya berusia dibawah sepuluh tahun. Kata itu disebutkan oleh tante saya yang baru pulang dari Ambon. “Momo” yang Ia katakan berarti sebutan untuk sejenis hantu atau setan di Ambon. Sejak saat itu mengendaplah kata “Momo” di otak saya dan terasosiasikan dengan hantu. Hingga akhirnya saya mendengar “Momo’ digunakan untuk panggilan adik kecilku.

I bought this book several months ago at a used book store, but I put off reading it because I was afraid it wouldn't live up to Michael Ende's other famous book, which also happens to be my favorite book, The Neverending Story. While Momo isn't as complex and more bluntly allegorical, it is charming and emotionally stunning. Perhaps I am more naive than most readers, but I felt myself swept up into this book's persuasive world in which children are forgetting how to play and adults only care ab ...more

THIS is how to write a novel-length fairy tale. The characters are whole and human, the fantasy pure, and all else perfect. I must have more of Michael Ende's work.
Some stories that deal with magic don't explain anything, not even the rules by which their magic operates. Others make too many rules, turning it into a confusing science. Not so here. Like fairy tales, we are introduced to a magical object, told the rules which constrain it, but now HOW it works, and move on. The reader is not lef

Kesinlike sadece çocuklar için yazılmış bir kitap değil.

Zaman kavramını işleyişi, kurgusu ve anlatımının kolaylığı sayesinde yazarın ne demek istediğini hiç zorlanmadan anlıyorsunuz. Ama bu demek değil ki sizi hiç düşündürmüyor. Aksine, kitap bitmiş olmasına rağmen hala bir sürü soru var aklımda.

Okuduğunuzda karakterinize yeni ve güzel özellikler katacak iyi kitaplardan biri. Kişisel gelişim saçmalıkları yerine böyle kitaplar daha çok okunsa keşke.

He tardado varios días en pararme a escribir sobre esta novela ya que necesitaba mi tiempo para colocar en su sitio todo lo que se movió dentro de mí durante su lectura.

Sinceramente, no esperaba encontrar nada de lo que encontré dentro de Momo. Los primeros capítulos te hacen creer que te adentras en un cuento para niños que al final tendrá su moraleja pero, de verdad, nada más lejos de la realidad. De hecho, aún no me pongo de acuerdo conmigo misma en si alguien que no sea adulto puede ser capa

Momo = Fantastik Çocuk Edebiyatı * [(" Ah, kimselerin vakti yok / Durup ince şeyleri anlamaya..") + ("eve dön. şarkıya dön. kalbine dön.")] / 2

Not: Kitapta en hoşuma giden, Gigi'nin Momo'ya anlattığı masaldı (Sihirli Aynanın Masalı).
Ich weiß nicht, ob zu dem Buch noch was gesagt werden muss (und falls es jemanden geben sollte, der es blöd fand: shame on you ^^). Es war toll, einfach nur toll. Gibt nix zu meckern. Klar, am Ende sind zwei oder drei Fragen offen geblieben, aber mit den "Erklärungen" dazu in seinem Pseudonachwort, hat sich der Autor geschickt aus der Affäre gezogen :D
Und noch erwähnenswert: Der Hörbuchsprecher hat großartige Arbeit abgeliefert.

Jetzt frage ich mich, ob ich mir mal den Film ansehen sollte...

Das Buch hat so eine tolle Botschaft!
Al leer a Momo recordé algo que aprendí a principios de año sobre la terapia cognitiva, sobre el tiempo, el aburrimiento y la necesidad de estar siempre ocupado, lo insano que parece no poder "no hacer nada", la vida es un va y viene, un constante ajetreo de compromisos y actividades que al final del día puede que ni sean útiles para nuestra vida, pero que tenemos que realizar para llenar los espacios de tiempo; es agotador. Esto suele pasarnos hasta en vacaciones, no podemos estar haciendo nada ...more

Me topé con Momo hace dos años. Mi profesora de literatura nos hizo leerlo como parte del plan lector. Mi amigo siempre decía que Michael Ende debió estar totalmente fumado cuando escribió el libro, porque le parecía ridícula la idea de robar el tiempo a las personas.

Momo, de Michael Ende, me gustó mucho cuando lo leí en la pubertad, y lo he disfrutado en la relectura. Para ser una novela destinada al público juvenil, no tiene un ápice de ñoñez, y eso se agradece. De hecho, es una novela mucho más adulta de lo que podría parecer a simple vista.

العبقرية متجسدة في كتاب واحد. أروع رواية للأطفال أقرأها في حياتي، وواحدة من أروع روايات الفانتازيا على الاطلاق.
الابداع الحقيقي أراه في قصص الاطفال حين ياتي الكاتب بفكرة بسيطة او سؤال بديهي نسأله طوال حياتنا ويصنع منه فكرة عميقة وعالم سحري.
السؤال الذي نطرحه دوما على أنفسنا، لماذا حين نكبر يبدو الزمن أسرع، ويبدو اليوم أقصر، وتنقضي الأيام بدون ان نشعر بها، ويضعنا الكاتب في حذاء الطفلة مومو وصراعها مع الرماديين الذي يسرقون الزمن في رحلة مليئة بالحزن والبهجة ممتزجان سويا.

“'s like this. Sometimes, when you've a very long street ahead of you, you think how terribly long it is and feel sure you'll never get it swept. And then you start to hurry. You work faster and faster and every time you look up there seems to be just as much left to sweep as before, and you try even harder, and you panic, and in the end you're out of breath and have to stop--and still the street stretches away in front of you. That's not the way to do it.

You must never think of the whole street at once, understand? You must only concentrate on the next step, the next breath, the next stroke of the broom, and the next, and the next. Nothing else.

That way you enjoy your work, which is important, because then you make a good job of it. And that's how it ought to be.

And all at once, before you know it, you find you've swept the whole street clean, bit by bit. what's more, you aren't out of breath. That's important, too... (28-29)”
“People never seemed to notice that, by saving time, they were losing something else. No one cared to admit that life was becoming ever poorer, bleaker and more monotonous. The ones who felt this most keenly were the children, because no one had time for them any more. But time is life itself, and life resides in the human heart. And the more people saved, the less they had.” 157 likes
