    1. For the first time in my life I finished a book, closed it and set it on my nightstand, stared at the ceiling for a few minutes, and fell asleep. I have nothing passionate to say. Or perhaps I do, but I can't bring myself to write these ideas in a public forum. The novel clears up many of the ambiguities of the 1958 film, and it answers many questions I was unaware I carried with me. It continues to haunt my thoughts as my mind works out just what it has taken in. The book is a masterpiece.

    3. Ich habe dieses Buch über meine Schwester entdeckt, ich wäre sonst vermutlich nie darauf gekommen. Mein Exemplar ist von 1959, es ist aber sehr schwer rauszufinden wann das Buch eigentlich geschrieben wurde. Klar ist nur, dass es eine autobiografische Geschichte ist, die von der Autorin später als Theaterstück umgeschrieben wurde und schließlich 1931 verfilmt wurde. Die Geschichte bekam bei den Wandlungen viele verschiedene Namen ("Das Mädchen Manuela", "Gestern und Heute", "Ritter Nérest [...]

    4. This book, written in 1931, is about a girl named Manuela von Meinhardis who was sent to Prussian boarding school where she met a teacher she fell in love with, Fraulein von Bernburg. I really like Fraulein von Bernburg's character, really. Overall, a beautiful story :)

    5. One of the most sensitive and beautiful stories I have ever read. Rather different (and more bold!) than the movies, but still very nice. Sad and tragic till the end

    6. A wonderfully heart wrenching story which, as the pioneering 1931 adaption, speaks with fervour. Unlike the film, though, in the book Manuela doesn't arrive at the boarding school until halfway through the story. "The Child Manuela" offers a story on Manuela's childhood, but to me the most interesting character is still that of Elisabeth von Bernburg. The book casts more light on those ambiguous actions of hers as experienced in the movie, but the book, as well as the movie allows only sparse gl [...]

    7. Given the time this was written, I was expecting it to be somewhat stale, but it was actually gripping and authentic. The author effortlessly drags you into her main character's emotional turmoil without ever slipping into melodrama. I'd only seen the toned-down movie version from the 50s, so it was particularly fascinating to discover that not only was Manuela's crush on her teacher reciprocated, and not only are several of the girls cheerfully blatant about loving other girls, but there were s [...]

    8. Apparently this was the basis for one of the earliest (1932!) lesbian-themed films made. I'll bite

    9. The beginning of this novel is fascinating: describing Prussia of the 1910s and all its military obsession. The characters are quickly drawn but very believable -- the father who is self-obsessed but wants to be kind; the mother who is loving but isolated and lost. And Manuela, the child who is desperate to love and be loved and deeply frustrated by the limitations placed on her because she is a girl. The second half of the novel is a really frightening description of a convent school and all th [...]
