Comments The December Boys

  • Ely Green

    Amazing. Incredible. Stupendous. One of my rare 5 star treasures. I'd heard about the film ages ago but Daniel Radcliffe does not really float my boat [no, get your dirty minds out of the gutter, pervs] so I skipped it. Now I'm itching to watch it immediately.I have a thing for books with detailed descriptions and intricate symbolism, and this book hit the nail on the head. Each and every paragraph was so strikingly beautiful that I'd have to stop, look away and take a couple of breaths before c [...]

    The plot of The December Boys was not incredibly interesting, but it was very well-written and the characters were great. I'd recommend it!

    Một ấn tượng đầy vui vẻ về vùng vịnh Captain’s Folly và năm đứa con trai.

  • Blanche

    Man liest diesem Buch an, dass es in Australien zur Schullektüre gehört War nicht schlecht, aber auch nicht richtig gut /spannend und anders als bei "Die Asche meiner Mutter" hat mich die kindliche Perspektive nicht so gepackt. Außerdem fehlten mir ein paar zusätzliche Infos über die australische Geschichte, um alles gut einordnen zu können.

    Interesting to read this book which is considered quite a classic Australian teenage novel about 5 orphans who spend 2 months on the beach as a holiday from their dreary outback Catholic orphanage. They believe that 1 of them will be adopted at the end of the holiday, so they each try to make sure that they are the chosen one. This leads to competition between the boys and a breakdown in their friendships and support of each other. Some thought provoking issues are raised, but the story is let d [...]

    I couldn't bring myself to finish it, had trouble with it. I have read many reviews which said that this book was spectacular and special but I just don't feel it. For everyone out there who enjoyed it I am sorry I got up to about page 77 and I sort of gave up, it just wasn't really my thing. I gave this book several chances and I have to admit I was disappointed. I didn't really see where this was going, however there were some interesting parts - I would hate to butcher the book, so I did enjo [...]

    I reserved a conclusion about how I felt until I finished this book, and I'm glad I did. Eventually (before I got to the end), I figured out what was going to happen and what that meant for the five boys who are the "December boys" as well as for the rest of the people in the town. A very good novel; some background information about Australia and its role in WWII might be helpful for some people, as that is important to the time period and the setting in which the story takes place.

  • Nicole

    Good premise, but the story was hard to follow. I'm not sure if it was a cultural thing, since Noonan is Australian, but the narrative seemed to skip all over the place. I had a hard time getting through. However, the premise was enough to make me want to see the movie. B&N published an edition of this book with Daniel Radcliffe on the cover.

  • Rachel McQuoid

    i expected so much more from this, i guess i thought because it was made into a movie it would have been amazing, so i was slightly disappointed. i found it was really difficult to get into. the ending was pretty good though.

  • Suzanne

    Uggh, this was hard to get through. I know it's supposed to be this amazing coming-of-age story in Australia, but I found myself skimming just to follow the plot line and get through it as quickly as possible so I could start reading The Golden Compass, which I then read in 24 hours.

  • Millie

    i love this book also. it's a really good coming of age story because you can learn about life through children's eye. i learned that you shouldn't take what you have and your family for granted because they're people in the world that doesn't have anything

  • Amanda

    This was ok, I had problems with the writing style. I couldn't connect with the story or the characters. I found the movie to be more enjoyable than the book.

  • Shane

    Can't believe this was written in 1963. An innocent story that stands the test of time.

  • Brenda Gonzalez

    2.5/5 leer este libro me hizo sentir extraña, ajena.

  • Jiang Shi

    Since I read this when I was still young, I couldn't remember what it is about. But I recall a very warm feeling when I read this book.

  • Thuy

    It reminded me how silly I am when I was at their age. Furthermore, it's touching and I cant really put it down

  • Kris

    I read it because I wanted to have a comparison with the film before I saw Daniel Radcliffe in an Aussie film. Ho hum, I wonder why they bothered? It didn't particularly grab me!

  • Tayla

    It was ok, a bit slow paced for me but still a recommendation.

  • Δx Δp ≥ ½ ħ

    hee rada membosankan beda dg filmnya :p

  • Phuong Thao Nguyen Vu

    I think this book is amazingly cute and yet it stands the test of time. Reading this, I just can't beleive that it was written long a ago.

  • Lulu's Life

    it was a great experience for me to learn something about life through children's eye and l really like the writting style of Michael Nonan :)
