What would you think if you were to read your favorite youth books now?

In the Seventies as a Pustenkop began Science Fiction.

With the production of the Fifties and sixties (the Golden Age of SF) still fairly fresh, it meant the equivalent of drinking from a fire hose.

Pretty uncritically started, there was quite a quick separation between garbage (if only a rocket came in it was already SF), the mainstream cool stuff and the tough, super complex artsy stuff.

Jack Vance is from the Swashbucklers.Asimov of the operas, and Clarke’s thoughtful and bija factually correct, or in any case imaginable.

I would like to take a look at books from that time, and read with the quality expectancy of my current now. Entertaining, but do me now only a hardcore book by Larry Niven, or Greg Bear.

I have read many good books in my childhood.One of the best books I still remember is “good luck, Professor!” by writer Aster Berkhof. The man still lives and is 98 years in the meantime.
The book was written in 1949.When I read it as a teenager in the years 70 it was already about thirty years old.
It was a splendor of a story, written smoothly, and tailored to teenagers.

When my youngest daughter was looking for a reading book somewhere in the mid-2000, she was about fourteen years old, and I recommended her “Good luck, Professor!”.It was still available in our library.
To my surprise, she found the book but nothing.”Unreadable!” she said.

When I took the book myself, I immediately understood why: The book is written in Dutch, but in comparison with the Dutch that we are using now it is really corny.It is laced with terms and expressions that no one yet uses. Semantically one hundred percent correct, but in practice really unreadable.

Therefore, do not expect too much of favorite youth books.They have continued to stand still in time, while we have advanced and our language has changed unnoticeably.

I’ve had some of it lying around and am effectively starting to re-read some of it.Usually that is thick.
The only thing that could continue with it is Robinson Crusoe.(But this was the adult version).
The truth is that I have not read children’s books very soon.

I still find my favorite youth books equally beautiful, so I really wouldn’t mind.

I would probably think that I know the story somewhere of…

I had no “favorite youth books”.From when I could read, I much prefer literature as well as earlier novels.

If Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and the like were already there, I would probably have read them… If HP had not had such infantile covers.

Lol am working again with Harry Potter I read my favorite books quite often.I can t majority of me favorite music games book movies dreams. T has something confortabels

Dear C茅line.

My answer is: if it is paid (in the form of royalties), I would be more than happy!

Very. Nice! At least, at some.. I he recently had to empty Minn Moms house and came across youth books.With some I find the illustrations so beautiful that I look at it occasionally.
