The Stone and the FluteI have already read some of the best literature masterworks of the world, but have to admit that this book was the greatest thing I ever read I would rate it as the story I always wished to write, and Hans Bemmann did it in the best imaginable way.This is a novel about life and about the world, about humans and about the nature What I love is that there is no god and no religion in this book.The world of this book is as colorful as the world around us, with people whom w The Stone and the FluteI have already read some of the best literature masterworks of the world, but have to admit that this book was the greatest thing I ever read I would rate it as the story I always wished to write, and Hans Bemmann did it in the best imaginable way.This is a novel about life and about the world, about humans and about the nature What I love is that there is no god and no religion in this book.The world of this book is as colorful as the world around us, with people whom we understand and sympathize with and those whom we do not.Music is the blessing of this world and Lauscher one like us all, with good intentions but stubborn, fool of mistakes and up to some extent spoiled with the gifts he had been chosen to have with him I stole got this book from my mum and this definitly is one of my all time favorites now It is a masterwork and has everything one needs from an exciting and intriguing story to lovable characters full of flaws And over it is a story about life and about human nature But honestly I can t even really describe how amazing it is you really have to read it for yourself. This book is one of my all time favourites I have devoured it for the first time about 20 years ago, and since then I have re read it every two or three years with great pleasure The Stone and the Flute tells the story of Listener, whom fate has endowed with mighty gifts, such as the Gentle Fluter s flute and Arni s Stone He does not know how to handle these items in a proper manner, and although he always believes to do the right thing or at least what he thinks others want him to do, most This book is one of my all time favourites I have devoured it for the first time about 20 years ago, and since then I have re read it every two or three years with great pleasure The Stone and the Flute tells the story of Listener, whom fate has endowed with mighty gifts, such as the Gentle Fluter s flute and Arni s Stone He does not know how to handle these items in a proper manner, and although he always believes to do the right thing or at least what he thinks others want him to do, most of the time he unintentionally brings disaster The atonements for his mistakes are always adventurous, for example following one of his victims around on his journey as his servant.The reader will see that after every adventure, Listener has learned quite a bit, but nowhere near all that he needs to know, and therefore soon stumbles into the next plight The several parts of his travels are so adventure filled, that one can merely wonder how there can be even , what Listener will have to go through further, but the length of this book is not misleading there is stillto come Dieses Buch geh rt zu meinen absoluten Lieblingen Vor ca 20 Jahren zum ersten mal verschlungen, lese ich es seitdem alle zwei, drei Jahre wieder mit h chstem Genuss Stein und Fl te und das ist noch nicht alles erz hlt die Geschichte von Lauscher, den das Schicksal mit m chtigen Gaben beschenkt, wie z.B die Fl te des Sanften Fl ters oder Arnis Stein Diese Dinge wei er aber nicht richtig einzusetzen, und obwohl er bei seinem Umgang mit diesen Gaben immer der Meinung ist, das Richtige oder zumindest das Verlangte zu tun, richtet er meist schweres Unheil damit an Diese Fehler muss er stets auf abenteuerliche Weise s hnen, wie zum Beispiel einem seiner Opfer auf dessen Reise durch die Lande als Knecht zu dienen.Als Leser kann man sehr sch n beobachten, wie Lauscher zwar nach jedem Abenteuer vieles dazugelernt hat, aber noch lange nicht alles wei und deshalb bald in der n chsten Misere landet Diese einzelnen Teile seiner Reise sind so abenteuerlich, dass man sich immer wieder fragt, wie da denn immer noch mehr kommen, was Lauscher denn noch alles erleben soll, aber das Volumen des Buches t uscht nicht, denn DAS IST NOCH LANGE NICHT ALLES VIDEO VERSION The Stone and The Flute by Hans

in high school, I wrote a review for it in the newsletter of our science fiction and fantasy club The one thing I vividly remember stating in that review was that the mark of a great book is one that can make you laugh out loud and cry tears onto the pages Since I was only in high school, I hadn t read many books with the power to do that The Stone and The Flute made me weep and laugh aloud on multiple occasions.I still believe that to chuckle and shed a tear is the barometer of a great story There are good stories that don t touch your emotions in that way But great stories All great stories take you through that range of feelings Any book that can make you feel such joy that you are laughing out loud and such sorrow that you actually sob, is awe inspiring Not many novels have that kind of power in them, to run through a full spectrum of human emotions.Author Hans Bemmann was 60 years old when he wrote The Stone and The Flute and it shows in his writing I don t think a 20 or 30 or 40 year old author would be capable of writing something like this When I read the book as a teenager, I was already on my way to being a writer What I read in The Stone and The Flute was both humbling and inspiring Humbling because I knew at my age, I couldn t possibly write a book that came close to approaching this Inspiring because it made me realize how much I had to learn and that maybe in 50 years, I d be able to create something that wondrous and magical His achievement is evenamazing when you consider that he only wrote 7 novels in his lifetime and he had only written one novel before this The Stone and The Flute was only his sopho effort When we re children and teenagers, we often think we re totally awesome We can do anything We can do things just as good as any adult We feel absolutely confident and sure of ourselves The Stone and The Flute was the first time in my life that my arrogance over writing was schooled and given a smackdown The Stone and The Flute was the first time I read something where I truly realized I was incapable of creating something that good And I wouldn t learn how to become that good in one year or 5 years or 10 years I realized this book was the culmination of a writer who had been honing his craft for decades and I had nothing on him.The main character of The Stone and The Flute is a young boy named Listener and the novel begins with his birth and ends with his death Now, I apologize if you feel that revelation is a spoiler I don t see it as one Revealing that the book spans the entire lifetime of a character is, to me, a wonderful selling point After all, this is the only story I have never discovered in my entire life with the ambition to attempt such an audacious undertaking as spanning an entire lifetime How many characters have you ever read about where you get to watch the whole of their lifetime I ve never seen any short story or novel try such a thing before Thus, so than any other book I know, you come to really feel for the character of Listener By the time you reach the end of the book, you feel you have known Listener longer than anyone else you ever met He becomes your oldest friend From his innocence of childhood, to his insolence of being a teenager, to his adventures as an adult, to his dignified journey into old age, you are by his side You are a witness to all of his life.The tone of the book is magnificent It has the pace and demeanor of a Grimm s Faerie Tale but it s over 800 pages long Now, I don t know if you ever sat down and actually read any of the Grimm s Faerie Tales, but to have a story of this length and magnitude maintain such a storybook resonance is utterly spellbinding Here s the first few paragraphs Once upon a time a boy was born in Fraglund, and this is his strange story His father was a mighty man whom folk called the Great Roarer he was tall and burly, and liked to wear his shirt open on his hairy chest His was a tempestuous nature One moment, he would fly into a terrible rage, the next he would be shaking with loud laughter Yet he was known as a just man, and so the people of Fraglund had asked him to come from far away to be judge over them in that part of the country Now when the Great Roarer came to Fraglund to take up his duties, he brought his wife with him, a quiet woman who kept so much out of the public eye that at first many thought she was not wedded to him She was said to be the daughter of the Gentle Fluter, of whose arts they had heard in Fraglund, although he lived very far away, beyond the great forest of Barlebogue Folk said his fluting was so sweet that even the birds would fall still to listen to him, and so soothing to the spirit that many a man s quarrel had been settled by the notes of his flute alone Such a splendid beginning And the book maintains that storybook atmosphere for all 855 pages Beginning to end.Listener is unlike any other fictional character I have seen because he is portrayed so realistically He isn t always heroic He is occasionally downright villainous Yet deep inside, he means well and does come to repent for his wrongs In other words, he s a lot like you that is ultimately what is so profound about this story The journey is a metaphor into your own life, and no matter what your age when you read this book, you will at some point experience the story at the same age as Listener Because of that, he becomes relatable to everyone We easily see our own past and present and future in his life and it makes us all thecognizant of how important our past and future decisions shall prove to become.As an American, I m not sure what the world of books and literature is like in other English speaking countries like England and Australia However, I presume that most of us are exposed to similar books Maybe I m wrong, but I tend to imagine that bestselling authors in America and England are, for the most part, the same batches people I know in America, we don t often have the chance to read great books and novels from other cultures The Stone and The Flute by Hans Bemmann was originally written in German and translated into English by Anthea Bell Other than The Never Ending Story, it may be, in fact I m almost certain it is, the only book I ve ever read that was not authored by someone who natively speaks English Not only was this a wonderful story, but it also made me realize what a shame it is that all people all over the world miss out on storytelling which never gets translated into our native tongues How many great stories are out there in French and German and Japanese and Russian and Spanish that I will never get to read in my lifetime Authors we will never hear about Books we will never know existed.One of the greatest things about language is the ability to articulate the commonality of the human condition The most memorable sentences we ever read tend to be the ones which eloquently express those intimate life experiences that we think no one else ever goes through We come across a sentence in a book and we say, Oh, my gosh This person thinks that everytime they step into the shower I do that too That is the commonality of the human condition That s one of the most inspiring and uplifting things to encounter in writing That serendipity of realizing we relate to each other as people in ways we never expected And to think, all those books, from all those cultures, written in languages that will never be translated, how much we are missing How many beautiful stories we will never have the chance to share.But, thanks to Anthea Bell, The Stone and The Flute by Hans Bemmann is not one of those stories This glorious German masterpiece is a story that the entire English speaking world can enjoy That is reason enough to read this story Read a copy of The Stone and The Flute and expose yourself to a viewpoint from another culture and see the beauty of a lifetime through the eyes of another world I

I have to admit I did not enjoy this book at all It easily could have been a series instead of one over large volume And it also really could have been edited down a lot Be warned, there are some

have been a good coming of age tale, as he makes mistakes near the beginning of the book, but then he keeps making them He loses his items to a gorgeous woman who seduces him then does it again and again Someone slap this kid for me For a while, he travels with a man he has wronged as his servant They go here, and have a random adventure, and then go there, and someone tells them a story This takes a while Three years in the book, which at times seems almost that long to those reading it, or at least to me At varying points in the book, Listener is essentially the Pied Piper, and then later a version of Pan He does dumb things, misuses his gifts, gets out of it, then doesdumb things I kept waiting for some kind of a payoff, and I d argue there isn t one He falls in love and loses her to another man after he and his lady have a kid together His daughter gets killed right in front of him He gets old He gives away again his magic items He ill considered deeds cause lots and lots of problems By the end of the book, he dies an old man, alone but for a talking stick no, really No friends, no family, no magic, no home He dies under a tree Bits of this world were fascinating, but it was not worth the trip to get to those parts I only got through all 855 pages because I don t quit on books I can t really recommend this book Cruising through some reviews of this book I noticed

putting a book down until you get to the end of a chapter you ll find yourself with a good number of sleepless nights The voice of the author is unlike any I have read since but this could be due to it s German translation I found it to be calming and considered in a simplified un flowery way as though it was written by a very wise 12 year old To illustrate what I mean you just have to read the opening line, Once upon a time.Outside of a fairy tale it seems like an odd way to start a book but after finishing it I couldn t help but think what a great start it was to this truly big book.I write big book not just for the number of pages it holds but for the feeling of insight we get into the main character s Listener life Throughout the book we see practically everything through his eyes, breaking it up here and there with tales told to Listener by others Throughout his life we see his human frailties along with his triumphs and cant help but to compare ourselves and what our own moral decisions would be in the many situations Listener finds himself in Personally though if I was to take one thing away from this book it would be that patience truly is a virtue.It may also just make you want to learn to play the flute
