  • Forget Prince Albert, Stella is littered with English traces There are whiffs of The End of the Affair and The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie I d like to conclude that Herr Lenz made this as an homage to his friend W.G Sebald, another German steeped in English traditions The plot is rather linear and self evident A teacher of English at a coastal German school has died One of her students grieves and recalls their relationship, one intimate than one would guess The paragraphs are dynamic, switching [...]

  • Sometimes it is the silences within a story that make the story and as paradoxical as that might sound, reading Lenz only reinforces that notion The German edition of this book translates to A Minute of Silence, the opening scene is of a school assembly paying homage to a departed teacher It is an almost indifferent story, not a sad one at all, the gradually building melancholic tone notwithstanding An eighteen year old boy falls in love with his English teacher, a twenty five year old English l [...]

  • Novelle over een kortstondige, tragisch aflopende liefde tussen de 18 jarige Christian en Stella, zijn lerares Engels Het sfeervolle en po tisch vertelde verhaal speelt zich af tegen de achtergrond van een zomers, Duits vissersplaatsje aan de Oostzee Het begint met een herdenkingsbijeenkomst van de school voor de lerares E n lange overpeinzing van Christian tijdens de minuut stilte voor de lerares Engels.Zeer mooi boekje


  • Ich w nschte wir h tten B cher wie dieses im Deutsch Leistungskurs behandelt statt die ewig langweiligen alten Kamellen So ein wundersch n poetisches Werk.



  • Sometimes silence can be gold.As a huge Lenz fan, this was a book I read despite the fact, that I usually do not read love stories Gladly I did it The book tells us a story of love between a young teacher and her student A careful love, a fragile love Lenz as usually takes care of narrating the story careful, he also treats his main characters with love and respect, which makes the reading very easy and enjoyable Only Lenz can take you to the beach while reading, his love for details is the one [...]

  • Mal etwas ganz anderes, das zum einen zum Nachdenken annregt und es schafft durch eine ganz eigene Atmosph re einen in den Bann zu ziehen Hier viel mir die Bewertung sehr schwer, denn es hat mich zwar schon unterhalten und war auf seine Weise etwas ganz besonderes Dennoch war es nicht mein Buch Ich kann verstehen, warum es anderen gefallen wird, aber f r mich selbst war es zu seltsam wenn man das so sagen kann.




  • Bijzonder innemende novelle over de liefde tussen een eindejaarsleerling en zijn bevallige lerares Engels Klassieke opbouw, maar zinderend dankzij de zinrijke beeldvorming over de jeugd, de liefde, de visserij en de zee Strak geschreven, gebalde perfectie.

  • Not a good book to read on a commute train to work Cause it moved me to tears Beautiful love story with the only possible ending.


  • What I don t like about this book using words that are not understandable for someone who is not living at the sea or was not living at that time using patterns of behaviour I can t identify with characters and their feeling unreproducible suddenly there is something going on defintetly too much harmony, perfectness and corniness oh come on, the fish thingy in the restaurant was soh Reading my points I feel like I am too stupid for classics I am not I understand Jane Austen and co perfectly well [...]


  • In dit boekje wordt veel aangetipt en weinig uitgediept Net als voor de lezer is het ook voor Christian een raadsel in welke relatie Stella stond tot de in het verhaal genoemde mannen en hoe Stella tegenover h m, Christian, stond.Was het een spel van haar of zag ze toch wel wat meer in hem dan alleen maar een verliefde puber Het verhaal wordt door Christian verteld, over Stella wordt gesproken in de derde persoon, om dan opeens over te gaan in de tweede persoon Ik dronk twee glazen bier en tot m [...]


  • Translated from the German, this small format 125 page novella is an easy, misty read Its soft, understated tone reminds me of Emily L by Marquerite Duras, which I also reviewed We know from that beginning that a German youth has lost his lover, a young woman, a bit older than he, who was his English teacher The book alternates between the present the memorial service for her, held at the school the Minute s Silence and the boy s memories of his summer fling with her His loss is all the poignan [...]


  • I m very pleased with this novella A sad love story, and you get to know that as soon as you start reading, of a boy and his school teacher Falling deeply in love with her is there any other way to fall in love when you re young , dreaming on the future, he s forced to face a loss he has no one to share with What s past did happen, all the same, and it will last, and in the company of pain and the sorrow that goes with it, I ll try to find what can never be brought back.


  • Beautiful and sad Rather visceral and in a way always just right out of reach which can also get a little frustrating when so many things go unsaid or appear out of order Fascinating choice to jump around in time and change who the narrator is speaking to talking about Stella or to Stella within the same paragraph Like a sad and beautiful dream.


  • Sadece anlat m dili bile bu kitab g zel yapmaya yetiyor asl nda st ne bide bu h z nl ve kalbe dokunan hikayesiyle ok ok g zel bir kitap haline gelmi Okudu um en naif en g zel anlat m diline sahip kitap olabilir kesinlikle H z n kt st me, ok g zeldi Erkek karakterin kad n karaktere sesleni i i ime dokundu resmen


  • Een raamvertelling Tijdens er herdenkingsbijeenkomst voor zijn gestorven lerares herinnert een leerling hun korte, verborgen verhouding Er gebeurt niets bijzonders, er zijn geen veroordelingen of afwijzingen die het paar in moeilijkheden brengt Het blijft allemaal wat algemeen en vaag.



  • Espectacular Un grande de la literatura alemana hace gala de grandes talentos para una hermosa historia de amor.Entiendo por qu se llama a las nouvelle nouvelles Se leen de una sentada.


  • A well written story of first love It is a simple story with a sad heartbreak A quick touching story I loved this quick read.
