    One thought on “School at the Frontier (Bluebird Reader's Academy)”

    1. Kényelmesen megúszom, hogy erről a könyvről hosszú kritikát kelljen írnom, mégpedig (Ottlik és Wittgenstein által) az elbeszélés nehézségeire hivatkozva.Egyébként remek volt. Nem, nem olvastam gimnáziumban.

    2. Az én értelmezésemben ez a regény -többek között- a beilleszkedésről, a kitaszítottságról szól, s arról, hogy a kettő hogyan fér meg egymás mellett. A főszereplők, akik egymás közötti különös viszonyukban egyszerre kirekesztettek mindannyian, korábbi életüket idegennek érzik maguktól, s cinkos összenézéssel nyugtázzák, hogy csak ők, együtt ismerik az élet valóságosabb oldalát. Érdekes tanulmány ez a dacról és meghunyászkodásról, törődésről és [...]

    3. Read this back in highschool but didn't remember too much and reading it as an adult was so much different.Recently revisited the setting where we used to go on holiday when I was little. Liked the story overall, it had a different impression on me than before - even though I don't remember what I thought of it then! - and it was good to read in Hungarian for a change which I rarely do nowadaysThe story felt kind of unfinished, but found out there is more, so will read.

    4. My father served in the hungarian army for a few years in his 20's. It felt living through his memories in a much deeper way. It made me realise how much he went through, that he has a big part of his life what cannot be compared to anything, another world, what no civilian can understand.

    5. This book is about a small boy, who tries to maintain his integrity in a military school, where the children are forced to obey written and unwritten rules, and to take their place in the hierarchy dominated mostly by force and tactic. When I read Arno Gruen's excellent book "The Insanity of Normality", I thought at once, that Ottlik and Gruen write about the same thing, only the first is an artist, the second is a scientist.Every time I re-read this book, I find something new in it, and it was [...]

    6. Set in a military boarding school in Hungary, following a story of a group of friends.School on the border, a border of growing up, a border between good and bad. This is a novel about growing up and finding freedom even in the strict confines of a military school. About finding yourself, finding others and discowering that freedom exists only inside and it is something to work towards. Something that nobody can take away. "Non est volentis, neque currentis. "

    7. The hardship of attending a military boarding school in Hungary in the 1920's. What starts out as a virtually unbearable experience eventually develops into strong comradeship among the students, especially between two of them: the author and the protagonist. After reading Ottlik's follow-up novel Buda, I started wondering. Could it be possible, that the actual author of this book is the protagonist himself?

    8. Értem, vagy inkább érzem, hogy mennyire súlyos mű ez, és talán ezért volt olyan nehéz olvasnom helyenként. Az bizonyos, hogy nagyon jó, hogy most olvastam, felnőttként, és nem érettségi előtt, amikor kötelező olvasmány volt.

    9. Gondolkoztam rajta, hogy irok egy bovebb ertekelest, de rajottem, hogy nem tudnam vele kifejezni magam, ugyhogy csak szavakkal fejeznem ki azt a sok erzest amit ereztem, mikozben olvastam.Remeny, Kegyetlenseg, Duh, Igazsagtalansag, Megbekeles, Igazsagszolgaltatas, Orom, Mb.

    10. Heb ik in het Nederlands gelezen.Nederlandse titel "School aan de grens".Geeft een indringend beeld van wat een jongen overkomt die op een militaire school geplaatst wordt.En daar in een sfeer terecht komt van pesterijen en onderdrukking.

    11. Not even I could really pull this off - an exploration of how several small Hungarian boys come to find a place for themselves at a military school.

    12. I read this book in Hungarian. Its original title is Iskola a határon. It's about a school where boys study. It was interesting to read about boys' world.
