Felix Salten is a poet. He feels nature deeply, and he loves animals. I do not, as a rule, like the method which places human words in the mouths of dumb creatures, and it is the triumph of this book that, behind the conversation, one feels the real sensations of the creatures who speak.

Felix Salten is a poet. Clear and illuminating, and in places very moving, it is a little masterpiece. I read it in galley proof on the way from Paris to Calais, before a channel crossing. As I finished each sheet I handed it to my wife, who read and handed it to my nephew’s wife, who read and handed it to my nephew.

Many have seen the cartoon versions, felt sad for the death and know it as a classic "growing-up" book for kids. But it's really a whole lot more, if you choose to read the original version. The book is not written as a children's story, .

I had no idea that it had been adapted from an original German book. To read the original story was such a surprise to me.

The same longing he had felt before began to stir again in Bambi. But much more strongly now than then. It seethed in his blood and made him restless. He strayed far afield. He met her quite unexpectedly, for. He met her quite unexpectedly, for his thoughts were so confused, his senses so clouded by the restless desire that raged within him, that he did not even recognize Faline. She was standing in front of him. Bambi stared at her speechless for a while. Then he said as though fascinated, How beautiful you have grown, Faline!. So you recognized me again?.

  • This is a five-star book but I'm only giving this edition 2 stars as a warning to buyers and readers: this edition has been edited/abridged, either deliberately or accidentally. I was skim reading a copy and noticed some familiar lines missing. Comparing it to other editions, both older, I saw that yes, text had in fact been dropped. It could just be poor re-keying (retyping) of the manuscript, or bad layout, or sloppy copyediting, but however these things happened, this version should be avoided, there are surely more complete editions available.

  • Don't get me wrong, I still love the Disney movie. It will always be one of my all-time favorites, but this book...this book...it just blows my mind. It takes subjects that were only touched on in the movie (The Circle of Life, dealing with loss, the passing of time, falling in and out of love, growing up in a dangerous world, loss of innocence, Nature Red in Tooth & Claw, Man's role in Nature), and takes them to a whole new level of beauty and terror. Characters we loved in the movie (Thumper, Friend Owl, and others) are given much deeper, more meaningful roles here, beyond your typical "cute-critter comedy relief", and not all of them make it out of this book alive...

    While Bambi does have its fair share of pretty nature scenes, cute animals being cute, and lovingly poetic descriptions of the woods' flora and fauna, this is oftentimes a very dark, very violent, out-right bloodbath of a story. Though these characters are given human speech and are reasonably anthropomorphic, they are still wild animals, who do not hesitate to kill for the sake of survival. There are a lot of throats being ripped out in this novel, and Bambi is not afraid to get blood on his antlers from time to time.

    And be sure to have a box of tissues on hand for this one. If you thought the death of Bambi's mom in the film was depressing, just wait 'till you read this. I'm telling you, the death of Bambi's mom is ONLY THE BEGINNING.

  • Classic tale well told. This is not the Disney story. This is a real novel about a young male coming of age, dealing with a father who is not expressive with affection. Characters have depth and are accurate as to animal qualities. Can be dense reading for modern kids who are used to reading drivel. This could change a young man's life. It is my husband's favorite novel from his youth. Beautiful descriptions.

  • Seriously disappointed and frustrated! This is NOT the book I received! I ordered the original chapter book by Felix Salten to read with my class, and I received instead an old Disney Bambi picture book. Not acceptable...and back to the drawing board to find the ACTUAL book I wanted.

  • Most people are familiar with the story of Bambi the deer from the Walt Disney animated film of 1942. Likely not as many people are aware of the fact that the movie is based on the book Bambi: A Life in the Woods by Austrian author Felix Salten, originally published in Austria in 1923. The standard English translation by Whittaker Chambers was published in North America by Simon and Schuster in 1928. It traces the life of Bambi, a male roe deer, from his birth through childhood, the loss of his mother, the finding of a mate, the lessons he learns from his father, and his experiences with the dangers posed by human hunters in the forest.
    Bambi is born in a thicket to a young doe in late spring one year. Over the course of the summer, his mother teaches him about the various inhabitants of the forest and the ways deer live. When she feels he is old enough, she takes him to the meadow which he learns is both a wonderful but also a dangerous place. Bambi meets his Aunt Ena, and her twin fawns Faline and Gobo. While they are playing, they encounter the princes, male deer, for the first time. After the stags leave, the fawns learn that those were their fathers, but that the fathers rarely stay with or speak to the females and young. As Bambi grows older, his mother begins to leave him alone. While searching for her one day, Bambi has his first encounter with "He"--the animals' term for man. During the winter, hunters enter the forest, killing many animals including Bambi's mother. Gobo also disappears and is presumed dead. The novel then skips ahead a year to the third summer when Bambi is now sporting his second set of antlers. After Bambi battles and defeats first Karus then Ronno, he and Faline express their love for one another. However, as Bambi continues to age, he begins spending most of his time alone. When Bambi is later shot by a hunter, the old Prince rescues him.
    The two remain together until Bambi learns that there is "Another" over all creatures, including "Him." The stag tells him that he has always loved him and calls him "my son" before leaving to die. In the end, Bambi meets with twin fawns. He thinks to himself that the girl fawn reminds him of Faline, and that the male was promising. Later, Salten wrote a sequel, Bambi's Children, that follows the lives of Bambi's twin offspring, Geno and Gurri. Disney's Bambi is less raw than the book. The novel, originally written for an adult audience and considered to be one of the first environmental novels, was thought too "grim" and "somber" for the young audience Disney was targeting, and was work required to adapt the story, severely downplaying the naturalistic elements. Some might object to what they see as the "anti-man" and "animal rights" theme of the book, but if one takes it as it was originally intended, simply a fantasy look at the kind of lives that animals experience in the forest, it is an interesting story. A few of the killing scenes might be a bit too much for small or sensitive children, but we did it as a family read aloud and everyone enjoyed it.

  • Wow...just WOW!!!! This book is so amazing. Although I have to say, before you read, do not expect Thumper or Flower to be in it. They are not included. Also, Bambi's mother "vanishes" a different way than in the movie. But, this book has so much more detail. It even has a short chapter on a conversation with leaves falling off a tree. The characters that we all know that are in the book are: Bambi, Faline, Bambi's mother, Bambi's father, and other smaller part characters. The characters that we do not know are: Gobo (Faline's twin brother), Kaurus, Ronno, old Nettla, Mareena, and Aunt Ena (Bambi's mother's sister and Faline & Gobo's mother.). I loved how the author puts a lot of detail into the book. Some chapters just talk about the weather or the animals in the forest. Others involve the main characters and other characters. I recommend the book be for ages 8-100. It is a great book for anyone. I love the part where - wanna know my favourite part? Read it and you can guess! Hope you like th book if you decide to read it! Great book! That's it, bye! :)
