Дивият запад на Карл Май:
(Цялото ревю е тук: https://knijenpetar.wordpress.com/201...)

Тази история е разказана много отдавна, но все още буди възхищението на млади и не толкова млади читатели по цял свят. За мен е удоволствие да видя това прекрасно издание с твърди корици, което всъщност е първи том от цели три за митичния индианец апачи Винету. Аз, както и много други читатели около моята възраст, са израснали с героите от Дивия запад, във време, когато „Да играем на индианци!“ беше едно от най

This book was a reread for me, a reread thirty years in the making. There are times when I reread the books I had loved as a child, that I find them mediocre at best. To put it simply, not many books stand the test of time, and the mind had since moved on to more challenging things to entertain it. However, this is not the case with Winnetou and Karl May's writing.

I fondly recall the innocent years when I devoured his books lusting after the wide world and all it has to offer. Karl May took me

Though he is virtually unknown to the English-speaking world, May is possibly the most-read German author of all time: his books have sold an estimated 100m copies to date. The Germans have a saying: "We know Goethe, but we read Karl May".

Karl May developed a love of good stories while serving time in prison for fraud. He wrote over 70 books, many of which have been translated into over 30 languages. Among his best-known works is Winnetou, published in three volumes between 1876 and 1893. The s

Когато всички бяхме индианци…: http://knigolandia.info/book-review/h...

Всъщност “Винету” така и не я бях чел на младини, нямам понятие защо, след като купчини с разръфани от четене книги на Карл Май стоят до днес в библиотеката у нас. Не е голяма изненада, че като си минал 30 и не си бил пленен отрано в нея, не е чак толкова интересна, идеализацията на героите е прекалена от съвременна гледна точка. И все пак имаше някакъв чар в това стремително движение напред и все напред, в предопределената п

Lieber Leser, weißt du, was das Wort Greenhorn bedeutet?

Už jako chlapec jsem neměl rád příliš kladné hrdiny, zejména ve filmu. Vadil mi James Bond, Američané ve druhé válce, Aragorn, nejrůznější neprůstřelní detektivové a podobně. Vždycky jsem si strašně přál, aby ten který charakter už konečně někdo zastřelil/porazil/odklidil z cesty a pro jednou udělal tu výjimku, že vyhrajou bad guys.

Je mi tedy trochu žinantní v tomto duchu přistupovat k největší klasice mezi Mayovkami, ale musím říct, že m

Nama Winnetou dan Karl May ibarat sekeping mata uang : tak terpisahkan. Membicarakan Winnetou sudah pasti akan menyeret pula nama Karl May bersamanya. Demikian sebaliknya.

Begitu tersohornya kisah petualangan Old Shatterhand bersama Winnetou, Sang Kepala Suku Apache (Indian), sehingga sudah dianggap legenda oleh para penggemarnya, bukan saja di Jerman, negeri asal Karl May, tetapi juga di seluruh belahan dunia.

"Write what you know." With those words I have probably quoted or paraphrased the advice of a countless number of writers. The reason for this advice is simple: the lie that is fiction must be perceived as a truth if a book is to stand the test of time. But then we have Winnetou - The Apache Knight.

Karl Friedrich May was born in Germany in 1842 and lived to the age 70 without ever having stepped foot in the American West. Yet he chose to write about that unknown place in the absence of any firs

Asi bohužel, ale přečteno až po prvním, a pak několikátém, shlédnutí slavné filmové verze, takže jsem jako dětský čtenář byl o celkový dojem z knihy ochuzenější. I tak však nutno podotknout, že Karl May byl prostě frajer a klobouk dolů před jeho fantazií!:-)

The copy I have is on loan from a friend, a Bavarian dedicated to this book. I see now why this and the other works of Karl May have become classics in Germany. Granted, some of the details of the American West have been misinterpreted and misrepresented, but May was hightly inventive and at all times captivating. His hero quickly earns the name "Old Shatterhand," and proves that he is truly no Greenhorn, surpassing the brilliance of all Indian braves, even the fabled Winnetou. With every turn t ...more

My friend, Erika, told me about Karl May. She told me this because at that time I was taking course or german languange. She told me that he was a very famous German writer.

So the next time I spent my time in a bookshop I picked up this book. I could never enough thankful to Erika. I really enjoy this book. It is a great adventure book. I felt like I was in the history and it's like watching 'indiana jones'.

Amazingly the writer wrote this story when he was in a prison and he had never been to U

Als ebook gelesen. Wollte doch nochmal sehen, ob 45 Jahre später die Magie noch einmal rauskommt.
Nee, das ist nur ein alter Schinken. Langweilig und in Teilen sogar reaktionär.
Gut, dass ich damit nur die Zeit in Wartezimmern, Flugzeug und beim Frisör ueberbrueckt habe.

Kalau ada seorang pengarang fiksi petualangan yang karyanya begitu digemari dan memiliki kesan mendalam di benak para tokoh besar dunia, maka Karl May tidak diragukan lagi adalah salah satunya. Tidak kurang dari tokoh-tokoh besar sekaliber Einstein, Herman Hesse, bahkan Hitler begitu terpesona dengan kisah petualangan ala padang prairi karyanya. Tulisan Karl May begitu khas. Sosok protagonisnya sedikit banyak menggambarkan sosok si penulis. Ini belum ditambah dengan jalinan cerita yang memikat, ...more

A very interesting novel and a testimony of its time. While May's belief in the superiority of the white race and of Christian religion is clearly percievable, there are also many indicators of a certain respect for the Native Americans and their culture, as well as a melancholic perception of a dying culture. May shows good and evil on both sides and delivers many colourful episodes about tracking and adventorous ruses. In conclusion, bearing in mind the very specific mindset of May and his use ...more

A child of its time and for its time a very special gem. The most tragic parts for me as a reader are when Karl May gets philosophical, ethical or political and his hopes are wronger than wrong: that the indigenous people and Germans had one thing in common: the love for nature and humanity itself and wouldn't do as much harm to the world as more imperialist countries (of that time). Can you be any more wrong?

Ich habe viele Klassiker gelesen, und auch wenn mir persönlich nicht alle gefallen haben, so konnte ich dennoch nachvollziehen wieso sie als Klassiker angesehen werden.
Bei Winnetou hingegen konnte ich es absolut nicht verstehen. Die Geschichte ist nicht besonders spannend, die Sprache nicht besonders einfallsreich und es spiegelt weder die wirklichen Lebensräume der Indianer noch das Zwischenmenschliche der damaligen Zeit wieder, da Karl May bekanntlich kein Fuß auf amerikanischen Boden gesetzt

I read this book a long time ago when I really crushed to Kary May and his works.

This book is the first (and beginning) American Series of Karl May. It begins when Carlie (or later known as Old Shatter hand) came to the USA from Germany and worked for construction. It led him to meet his blood brother and his best friend, Winnetou, the head of Apache tribal after the death of his father.

It describes why Carlie and Winnetou had quarrel and how it turned to friendship. How Winnetou's father and

Buku ini keren abis, sumpah! Walaupun ceritanya udah jaman kuno dulu tapi tetep keren untuk dinikmati pada abad 21 ini. Karl May, diluar kesalahan mendasarnya menggunakan kata-kata westman dan greenhorn yang tidak sesuai ejaan tata bahasa menurut penerjemahnya, memberikan alur yang sangat kuat di buku ini. Ada sih yang mengganjal di benak saya kalau mengingat si tokoh utama Old Shatterhand itu diceritakan disini sebagai tokoh yang almost perfect yang sepertinya belum pernah saya jumpai di kehidu ...more

Безусловно мне понравился стиль написания книги, быстрота разворачивающихся событий, обилие опасных моментов, погонь и образов. Но было слишком много приторного в этой книги. А именно сам главный герой Олд Шаттерхенд. Его идеальность, сила и непревзойдённый ум действительно начали действовать на нервы. И подчёркивали нереальность происходящего.

I read it in Indonesia version.
Reading this book for the sake of my memories of my eldest sister. She really liked this book when she was at junior high school but the book was divided into some thinner series back then.
It was entertaining at first... but in the end mr May's bombastic style really made me tired.... hwa hwa.

Това далеч не беше първата ми книга на Карл Май и когато я четях, вече го познавах като автор и го харесвах. Все пак това беше първата му мащабна история, която захващах за прочит. Както по-известните му неща, историята беше вълнуваща и завладяваща.

In addition, he wrote stories set in his native Germany, in China and in South America.

“Unter der wehmütig herabhängenden Krempe eines Filzhutes, dessen Alter, Farbe udn Gestalt selbste dem schärfsten Denker einiges Kopfzerbrechen verursacht haben würden, blickte zwischen einem Wald von verworrenen, schwarzen Barthaaren eine Nase hervor, die von fast erschreckendem Ausmaß war und jeder beliebigen Sonnenuhr als Schattenwerfer hätte dienen können. Infolge dieses gewaltigen Bartwuchses waren außer dem so verschwenderisch ausgestatteten Riechwerkzeug von den übrigen Gesichtsteilen nur die zwei kleinen, klugen Äuglein zu bemerken, die mit einer außerordentlichen Beweglichkeit gebabt zu sein schienen und mit schalkhafter List auf mir ruhten.” 3 likes
