I Nangijala, där är det ännu lägereldarnas och sagornas tid, och det är dit man kommer när man dör. Det berättar Jonatan Lejon för sin bror Skorpan som ligger sjuk och har råkat få veta att han snart ska dö. Hur kan det vara så hemskt att en del måste dö när dom inte har fyllt tio år ens, undrar Skorpan. Vet du Skorpan, jag tror att du får det härligt, försäkrar Jonatan. I ...more

In high school I loaned this to a girlfriend and then she dumped me and then I called her house like every day all "GIVE ME MY BOOK BACK" until she finally left it outside my door so she wouldn't have to talk to me.

I was a pretty big fan of this book.
If you don't like this book you just don't understand anything....
Simply one of the best children's books ever written. It treats very serious questions in a truly admirable way and gives hope at the same time. Pure, honest, brave and magical...

There are times when reality is hard to bear!

There are times when you wish you would not have to face what is actually happening. For all those times, Astrid Lindgren wrote The Brothers Lionheart. I must have read it about ten times by now, several times as a child, and several times with my own children, and students. I have watched the film, listened to the magical audiobook in which Astrid Lindgren herself reads the story, in that slow, humoristic voice of hers, indicating her Småland dialect

remember that book you read in your childhood?

it was in hardcover, it was a bit dusty and used, and you had that feeling that you would like this book. and so you read it- and it had adventures and it was interesting and you couldn't stop reading that book (you read other books before, but that was the first book you were glued to).

This is the most important, most magical and most precious book from my childhood. It is the book that made me believe in something greater than myself when I was about ten years old. It is, to me, one of the most wonderful stories for children and young teenagers.

By the time I was 18, I had read it three or four times, later I read it to my oldest daughter and now to my youngest. And I still struggled to hold back the tears.

It is about the love between two brothers, about life after death, abo

The book that made me who I am today.
The one that taught me to stand up for my friends.
The book that showed me that Somethings you just HAVE to do, or else you are not a real human being, just a little speck of dirt.
Of course, I read it in the original Swedish, but anyone who has half a mind of reading something truly healing should give this a go in English. It is well translated, and she IS, after all, the mother of Pippi Longstockings. I rest my case.
Jonatan, jag ser ljuset.

"... Alligevel kunne jeg ikke lade være med at tænke på, hvor skønt det ville være, hvis vi ikke hele tiden skulle være så stærke og modige."

Jeg købte denne bog kort efter jeg sidste sommer var i Junibacken og blev mindet om dette skønne eventyr af Astrid Lindgren, da vi tog med Eventyrtoget rundt, for at se Lindgrens forskellige historier.

Da jeg var yngre holdt jeg faktisk ikke forfærdeligt meget af historien. Jeg fandt den alt for uhyggelig og jeg brød mig virkelig ikke om, at den handlede s

Astrid Lindgren Forever! :)

“Why did you save Park's life, was that so good?'

'I don't know if it was such a good thing to do,' said Jonathan. 'But there are things you have to do, otherwise you're not a human being, just a piece of dirt. I've said this to you before.'

'But what if he'd realized who you were?' I said. 'And they had caught you!'

'Well, then they would've caught Lionheart and not a piece of dirt,' said Jonathan.”

Oh man, I am an absolute sucker for sibling relationships (have I mentioned this before? Maybe I have), if not, know now that I am.

So you might guess why this is (along with 'Mio, My Mio') my favourite Astrid Lindgren book. The relationship between Tvebak and Jonathan (the Danish names) is so unbelievably precious, and leaves me in tears, even now, despite it being a childrens book.
Having a brother myself, I understand the devotion you can have for a sibling; I'd do anything for him. I'd face

Astrid Lindgren schreibt tolle, fantasievolle Märchen für Kinder.
Schade, dass ich die Bücher erst jetzt für mich entdeckt habe.

"Die Brüder Löwenherz" erzählt ein Abenteuer zweier Brüder, die wirklich zeigen, was Geschwisterliebe ist.
Jul 26, 2016 Nanna rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
Absolut fantastisk bog. Darwin på 7 og Saga på 5 blev virkelig grebet af brødrenes fortælling - og jeg selv ikke mindst.

Historien er barsk. Den handler rigtig meget om død. Mavesure anmeldere og de korrekte pege-fingre-forældre ville have haft en forargelsesfest af en anden verden hvis den var udkommet i dag. Ikke mindst fordi der er en dobbeltside med en 70'er-illustration af en (gisp!) nøgen 13-årig dreng omtrent midtvejs.

Reading childhood favourites again as an adult is risky business, and with Astrid Lindgren it can be devastating. Not because her books disappoint; they don't. She has the gift of writing books that are read one way by children and another by adults. For a child, The Brothers Lionheart is an empowering adventure about brotherly love, courage, and doing the right thing even if you are scared. Children take the story at face value. It's the story of a sick child who gets to go on adventures and be ...more

Eeeh, no me esperaba ese final Oo'

Al parecer este es el libro amado de infancia de varias personas, y tal vez sea esa clase de libros que no sirve para leerse con una mirada adulta. Entiendo además que está todo ese asunto cultural que puede que me pase por sobre la cabeza y que confieso entender bien poco aparte de haber visto unas pocas peliculas ambientadas alli (y ya sabemos que bien sale todo en las películas, con honrosas excepciones).

نمی شود به این اثر ستاره داد.. این اثر برای کودکان نوشته شده پس باید کودکان به این اثر ستاره دهند... بنظر من کتابی خسته کننده بود. و تغیرات در روند داستان کاملا ناگهانی رخ میداد که انگار نویسنده ناخودآگاه چیزی یادش آمده و نوشته باشد...داستان های کودکان خیلی بهتر از این نیز خوانده بودم

A strange if charming little book. It begins with the tragic deaths of two young brothers who are then reunited in the land of Ningiyama, where the world is still as it was in the age of sagas with many adventures to be had. However, the boys discover that not all adventures are worth having as they find themselves facing increasingly evil foes and long odds. The end of the story took me by surprise and I'm not sure what to make of it. Despite what a one-star review on this site claims, the endi ...more

Det at vende tilbage til et barndomseventyr, som er blevet fortrængt gennem årene, er en helt fantastisk og unik læseoplevelse - især Astrid Lindgrens eventyr. "Brødrene Løvehjerte" ramte mit hjerte og mine tårer trillede ofte ned ad kinderne under min læsning af det fine eventyr. Jeg sidder nu lidt tom tilbage, og ville ønske at jeg kunne tage med Brødrene Løvehjerte ud på nye eventyr i Nangilima!

For years I've had a strong but vaguely-detailed memory of a book I read as a child. I couldn't remember the title, the author, the plot, or even how old I was when I read it. I knew that a boy followed his brother to a land after death, and I had a blurry image of what was possibly the cover, and I knew that younger-me had been deeply moved by it in some way. Every few years I'd try to find it, but without any luck.

A few weeks ago, I found it. I must have have finally hit on the right search t

while this is technically a children's book by a children's author, the subjects are heavier than most adult novels: death, disease, loss, the afterlife, the right to react to violence with violence, family, and loyalty. everyone i spoke to about this book said the same thing: that the book illicited tears, whether out of sadness or joy or some combination of both. it is one of the most universally loved books in the author's home country of sweden: the extended version of the movie from 1977 is ...more

A tale about brotherly love and finding courage even in the most difficult of circumstances, The Brothers Lionheart narrates the adventures of two brothers, Jonathan and Karl Lionheart, as they dwell in an idyllic happy place called Nangiyala and confront the evil that starts to threaten the peace of the land.

Not long after Karl joins his older brother Jonathan in a secured border in Nangiyala called Cherry Farm, he learns that a cruel tyrant named Tengil has taken control of its adjacent neigh

The Brothers Lionheart is a worldwide classic from author of Pippi Longstocking, Astrid Lindgren.

◾ Astrid Lindgren has a unique writing style that I think is known only to Norwegian/Swedish/Finnish/etc writers - take Heidi as another example. It transports us among waterfalls, forests, valleys, meadows and flowers to days of old, in sagas and fairy tales.

◾ I love the relationship between Karl and Jonathan. In writing, Karl sounds older than he is - but the beautiful illustrations show merely

هذا كتاب يعلم الطفل معاني النخوة والجرأة والسعي للمبدأ.. تقرأ فيما بين أسطره مايعيد الرجولة إلى من اعتاد الاستعباد.. السرد غير معقد أبدا يسهل فهمه.. والرسومات على بساطتها إلا أنها تسحبك إلى زوايا مختلفة من القصة..

أفكار القصة متسلسلة وخيالية.. فالأحداث في مجملها تحدث في حياة أخرى غير حياتنا.. وتحديدا في عالم يصله من يموت.. أما شخصيات القصة فهناك شخصيات أساسية وفرعية، بالطبع الأخوين -قلب الأسد- هما بطلي القصة، أدرك أن هناك من وضع تصورا للقصة بمجرد سماع اسمهما، وأعتقد بأن الناشر تفادى ترجمة العنوا

"It's Valhalla — you know, for kids!" (i.e., the heroes' afterlife, but in a somewhat toned down and sanitized way.)

I can see why some people fell in love with this book when they read it as children. I also think that this is a book you have to read as a child to fully relate to its charm. (There will be adults who are exceptions to this, I suspect. It depends on how you feel about death and dying. Because it deals with these themes it would be good to preview it before giving to a young child,

This is a classic mythos book. It's my favorite book in the entire world. I first read this book in the third grade and kept reading it until I left that school. Then followed a period of ten years when I couldn't find the book as it had gone out of print. I finally found a copy and forced my long-suffering girlfriend to read it. And then forced my next girlfriend to read it. It's got an amazing premise for a children's book. And it's written by the Pipi Longstocking woman!
