    One thought on “The Adventures of Baron Munchausen”

    1. Everybody knows that to lie is bad But Baron Munchausen used to lie with such virtuosity that his lying achieved the state of art quality and he is highly respected for this art all over the world One evening I missed a bee, and soon observed that two bears had fallen upon her to tear her to pieces for the honey she carried I had nothing like an offensive weapon in my hands but the silver hatchet, which is the badge of the Sultan s gardeners and farmers I threw it at the robbers, with an intenti [...]

    2. A True StoryI went out this morning for a hike and also to search for new books in the forest At this time of year the book beeches don t bear fruits any, of course, so I took my spade with me and hoped for some leftover hardcovers beneath the snow I know of a few spots other book hunters usually avoid for whatever reason So I went there and and started digging but all I found were two half rotten YA novels and an unidentifiable volume that looked fine at first, but when I opened it I found it t [...]

    3. When we had reached within two days journey of the ship, we observed three men hanging to a tall tree by their heel upon inquiring the case of their punishment, I found they had all been travelers upon their return home had deceived their friends by describing places they never saw, and reciting things that never happened this gave me no concern, as I have ever confirmed myself to facts Baron Munchausen The Surprising Adventures of Baron Munchausen is an enjoyable satirical account of the fictit [...]

    4. After few slower books, it was nice to read something quick and just lose myself in the story This book was perfect for that Ireallyenjoyed reading it I think the reason why I enjoyed reading it this much, was because of the humor The humor in this book was right up my alley Great short book, that I m sure I ll re read again than once.

    5. It is, you see, difficult to stay connected with old friends that is why I once created this website where you could find and meet your old friends I was in a good mood that day and since it hardly took me an hour to create it, so I gave it to this young boy try as I may, I can t recall his name Mark something, he was pissed off after his GF broke with him I can t recall his last name zuck berger bug Anyway I wouldn t have mentioned it if this same website was not used by some of my enemies to e [...]

    6. I was shopping along North Michigan Avenue, when I saw a man , in a stylish hat, about to get struck to death by one of the city s infamous taxi cabs I dashed, and pulled him out the way, falling myself on the curb I looked up, and realized I was gazing into the eyes of Johnny Depp a true actor He assisted me up, and inquired of my health Jon, as he insisted on me calling him insisted I return to his suite at the Trump Chicago to freshen up Jon asked if he could repay me, and I insisted there wa [...]

    7. L gen m gen kurze Beine haben, k nnen damit aber gleichwohl kr ftige Spr nge tunWas mir anfangs auch nicht klar war, den Hieronymus Carl Friedrich Freiherr von M nchhausen hat es sogar wirklich gegeben, und zwar lebte er von 1720 bis 1792 Nachdem er am Russisch sterreichischen T rkenkrieg teilgenommen hatte hierin lag wohl eine Quelle seiner abenteuerlichen Geschichten , mu te er jedoch aufgrund innenpolitischer Verwerfungen am russischen Hofe erkennen, da ihm dort keine weitere Karriere offenst [...]

    9. I m actually reading an antique copy I found at the library book sale last year, not the Dover edition It s slow going, because the humor is rather brutal, lots of hunting and killing and maiming, not my cup of tea Interesting artifact of an old style of tale telling, though, lots of very short, outrageous tales.I see the humor, but I don t enjoy it very much It s one of those things I m plowing through because I think it s important culturally, but I won t keep it, in spite of the physical beau [...]

    10. If only Salvador Dal could have illustrated this book Or Jack Kirby Makes Alice in Wonderland seem very normal

    11. I read this as another palette cleanser before returning to the unending flood of short horror fiction Baron Munchausen is a figure much better known in Europe than here in the United States, where his equivalent might be something like Pecos Bill or Paul Bunyan, maybe actually, those who remember the Tennessee Tuxedo cartoon show will find the closest analog we have to The Baron in blustering, understated British adventurer Commander McBragg.The Baron tells stories of his amazing adventures and [...]

    12. Funny, charming, and ludicrous The first chapters were hilarious, and witty and I loved re telling these to my friends to pull them into reading this, but when I got to the later chapters some that I believe were less inspired by Munchausen s actual tales I was disappointed The first stories, usually involving a hunting incident but some war stories as well, were beautifully set up with an ironic twist at the end The later ones were just full of ludicrous nonsense with barely any thread of consi [...]

    13. Tall tales of the unbelievable exploits of Munchausen, i wonder if the Donald Trump character is based on this guy This isn t great but is better than i expected Random nonsense of this sort tends to really bore me but every time i started to lose interest something would occur to coax at least a wry smile from me Usually stories like this are done as satires likeVoyage to Cacklogallina ,Gulliver s Travels,Niel s Klims Journey Under Ground etc But this bares in common withRabelais orLucian s Tr [...]

    14. A bit biased on this one since I ve just written an essay on it and don t want to read anything, ever again, ever at all ever.The first part is the best full of silly stories, wild adventures, a great deal of masculine braggard dom, and a pinch of political satire The second half, not written by Raspe, is hard to get through, dull, and plain weird at times Definitely doesn t have the same magic and none of the Munchausen stories you might know come from it Yaawn.Not so cool the Baron s off hand [...]

    15. I ve read this book numerous times when I was a kid and I enjoyed the hell out of it It is funny, hillarious and amazing Read it and you ll be entertained all the way through it.

    16. Fun filled, incredible, bemusing and head shaking, these stories are fabulous in the old fashioned sense They tell the fables of one fascinating character, based on a real life person The Singular Adventures of Baron Munchausen purportedly is the tale of an ex soldier doing what veterans often do lie about their sexual exploits and their military maneuvers But Munchausen went further than that when entertaining his guests He spun yarns of ludicrous and unbelievable adventures travels to the moon [...]

    17. Read this in my childhood, I clearly remember the warning my father gave me when I unwrapped this book for my 10th birthday that I should take what was written with a big grain of salt and that I shouldn t get upset with the book when I read something impossible.I m glad he warned me, because that s what I remember most the sheer astonishment about how a person could have so much fantasy, make so many things up and tell them as if they were true Interesting to see, how my reaction will be, shoul [...]

    18. Easy and enjoyable to read Tremendous fun, with myriad of ideas images falling over each other and spilling off the page Highly suitable for children with short attention spans Would ve given 4 or 5 Stars if only there had been an overall story the bitty anecdotal nature causing it to feel somewhat inconsequential One of those books that can be taken down any time as a palette cleanser between heavier stuff.

    19. A experiencia de contar hist rias tem muito mais a ver com compartilhar outras possibilidades de observar a vida, do que meramente entreter a pessoas Munchausen tinha um modo peculiar de partilhar suas experi ncias, e contaminou toda uma gama de pessoas com seu estilo de prosa E jamais ser esquecido.

    20. This was one of my childhood favorites, and I wonder what it would be like to reread it now Outrageous, decidedly funny with zero pretense to sound factual, charming Glad it is still available.
