The Danish Girl is a delicate, elegant novel about the search for one s true self when one s body, as an external encasement, doesn t mirror what is on the inside in short, when a man is born a man in body but not in spirit It is also about what makes a marriage and how far a woman will go to let her husband find his true self, knowing that she will likely lose him in the process The novel is based on real characters who lived in Copenhagen in the 1920s The story was groundbreaking at the time i [...]

Actual rating 2.5In the opening pages of this story, the reader is witness to the first time that Einar Wegener is asked to model for his wife s painting The subject of her painting, an opera singer named Anna, is otherwise engaged, and Einar does have the slender build to fit Anna s dress, stockings, and shoes.Einar is surprised at how much he enjoys the feel of the dress, and realises that it may be hinting at the thing he s been missing his whole life that he is, in fact, a woman.And thus, Li [...]


Davytron

This book presents a terrible representation of a trans woman Rather than portray a trans experience, this portrays the experience of someone with dissociative identity disorder which is barely a thing anyway Worse than that, the source material is way interesting than what is portrayed here The artistic liberties the author took to flesh out the story were poorly thought out How such an interesting story and vivid characters can be painted so flat is beyond me.This novel is a disservice to the [...]

Every year I set a reading goal here on and then search Pinterest for a reading challenge list This year s list has 52 categories in which I need to read by the end of the year So, obviously I searched for a category in which The Danish Girl would fit First up was book about a person with a disability I know many people think transvestism falls into that category I balked at that Eccentric character Well, since there is a real biological cause, this category was disrespectful A difficult topic w [...]

This book takes us on an interesting journey of Einer Wegener turns into Lili Elbe I was intrigued, interested, and completely drawn into the time period Set in the late 1920 s 1930 s against Danish Europe, we meet Greta I ve never met a character move forgiving and understanding than this one She falls in love with Einer and returns back to Denmark to follow her heart One day during their marriage, she asks Einer to put on a pair of stockings and women s shoes to get the rest of her portrait of [...]

I finished The Danish Girl and while I really really liked it, I also have some quibbles about a novel that mixes up historical fact with so much made up stuff It felt cheaty For example, the main characters Einar and Greta Weneger have the same names as their real life counterparts Einar s story as he transforms into Lily is pretty close to what actually happened at least dates, places, and a few facts But the real Greta Weneger was totally different than the fictional one she was Danish, not A [...]


SUSAN *Nevertheless,she persisted*

I was lulled to sleep by most of this book The book,characters and storytelling fell flat I wanted to like love this book,I was fascinated by the concept,the fact that it was loosely based on a true story I was all in,but it just failed to hook me.Perhaps it is simply a case of wrong book,wrong time.

Todo lo que pueda decir, se queda corto al lado de Lily.

Logo que saiu em 2010 que este livro que me tinha ficado debaixo de olho Gosto de livros baseados em factos reais e a hist ria do pintor Einar Wegener, da qual eu n o conhecia nada, cativou me pela sinopse Depois, outros livros foram saindo e este livro foi ficando na wishlist e acabou por n o sair de l at agora A chegada aos cinemas do filme baseado no livro foi o mote para que me viesse parar s m os Desde j devo agradecer gentileza da Porto Editora que prontamente acedeu ao meu pedido e mo env [...]

I haven t read the book, but I m looking forward to seeing Eddie Redmayne and his freckles in this film tonight.


Catherine Davison

While I found the story compelling based as it is on the true story of Einar Wegenar s transition from male to female and his wife who stayed loyal to him and supported him throughout, it was the writing which irked I remember feeling the same irritation while reading The Nineteenth Wife Ebershoff writes well and evokes the atmosphere of Paris, Copenhagen and Dresden in the early 1920s and 30s well, but he describes everything and everyone in similes, everyone s face was like such and such an ob [...]

I liked it for the most part I wish the story stayed with Lili and Greta I kind of got bored when the story would trail off to other characters and their stories.My favorite part of the whole story was the fact that despite the time era I loved that Einar had such a strong support group The people he loved most were there for him and Lili and didn t judge him That is than some could say even in this day and age.Though I liked this story I feel that it will actually make a better movie than a b [...]

This was probably my least favorite book so far this year It s not that it s bad, per se, but I just found it hard to get through I m looking forward to the film version which everyone says is brilliant and of course Alicia Vikander won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Gerda The book is a fictionalized account of a real life couple, Gerda and Einar Wegener Einar was one of the first men to undergo a sex change operation in the 1930 s It s a love story and it s sad and l [...]

Quite a lot of things bothered me about this book 1 The multiculturalism the author tries to get across by wildly throwing around names of places in Danish, French, German and then having the audio book narrated by a person who cannot pronounce a single word correctly in any of those languages It s particularly annoying when the names of people are ever so Scandinavian Like Einar That doesn t work when pronounced in English, it just sounds like Eeyore It is so not supposed to sound like Eeyore.2 [...]

Non ho voluto, intenzionalmente, vedere il film prima di aver letto il romanzo, per non essere influenzata nella lettura, visti e sentiti gli entusiastici commenti alla magistrale interpretazione di Redmayne e nn solo Quindi mi sono approcciata serenamente e senza nessuna idea di come si sarebbe evoluta la storia e sopratutto di come l avrebbe narrata Ebershoff Bene, devo dire che non sono rimasta affatto delusa Il romanzo elegante, sobrio, a tratti delicato Senza particolari drammi o discrimina [...]


Ryan

Boring The real people this book is based on are 1000 times interesting Very poor representation of a trans persons transition Don t read this book, it s a waste of your time.


Denisa

For everyone that wants to read this book, here s a friendly advice go watch the movie.


Molly Jones

This historical novel, by David Ebershoff, is about the first transexual to undergo a sex change in this case, a man who becomes a woman set in the early 1900s The story is an intertwining of two lives, the man who undergoes the sex change and his wife The wife is a strong willed Californian, who comes from a very wealthy family that wants her to accept her socialite life, which she defies by moving to Europe She dreams of becoming a painter, but is uncertain of her talent and her focus She ends [...]

I am so angry frustrated with this I m aware that this was loosely inspired by Lili s journey, but still This could have been a poignant portrayal with some lovely, tender scenes But no Somewhere along the way this turned into complete trash UGH THE DANISH GIRL sadly didn t become on my radar until I came across the film last month Eddie Redmayne can do no wrong saw that it was also a book, so of course reading it is only the natural thing to do I was really surprised to discover that the film s [...]


Ana

Termin de leer La chica danesa de David Ebershoff Nota 3.5 5La chica Danesa est inspirada en las memorias de Lili Elbe, que fue publicado post mortem por su prometido en la obra Man into Woman Como bien aclara su autor al final de la obra, es una historia inspirada lo cual no quiere decir que todo sea certero, y que mucho sea inventado, con eso en claro voy a intentar comentar sobre esto La historia es bastante como lo que pudimos ver en la pel cula protagonizada por Eddie Redmayne que est basad [...]

Ho letto il libro scritto da David Ebershoff e ho visto il film diretto da Tom Hooper Una storia vera molto interessante, che, tuttavia, n il romanzo, n la pellicola raccontano in modo esaustivo, ossia prendendo in considerazione tutte le ambiguit del rapporto matrimoniale tra Einar Wegener Lili Elbe, il primo transgender conosciuto sottoposto a operazioni chirurgiche di riassegnazione sessuale sto termine, riassegnazione sessuale , mi fa francamente un po ridere sembra una roba tipo pacco posta [...]
