    Schadenfreude That s what this book is about and it s all Harriet thinks about the misfortune of others and how she can find joy in it While that can have its place like in The Hunger Games , it is just disturbing where this book is concerned.This is one of those rare times where, twenty years later, I reread a book from childhood that I adored, and my opinion of it completely changes as an adult I kept my original copy from childhood, but now I m not sure I will keep it still because I can

    Okay, who s ready for another dose of nostalgia I remember picking up this book before a summer vacation The trailer had premiered earlier and I was dying to know what happened before I saw the movie All the readers who truly feel me, throw your hands up at me My plan was to read a chapter a day, but I was also reading

    I loved this book as a kid I may just have to read it again And read it again I did I grew up in Harriet s neighborhood almost and the descriptions of the New York of my childhood almost broke my heart.Harriet is a cranky adolescent, living in a cushy New York world that was already changing when I was young and going to The Gregory School , which was really The Chapin School, located on East End Avenue, across the street from Carl Schurz Park.The typical brownstones

    I loved this book Read it first in the fifth grade, then read it at least twice a year after that until it fell out of my book bag in the gym locker room in the seventh grade Spent the rest of that term known as Harriet or Fuckin Girly Fag I guess I preferred Harriet.

    This isn t a great children s book This is a great book whose protagonist happens to be very young.This is a book that manages to be shocking in spite of the absence of sex, drugs, and violence Harriet isn t forced to kick arse in a fight to the death, or struggle to feed her family On the contrary, the only shocking thing about her personal circumstances is how privileged she is Her family employs a housemaid, a cook, and a nurse improbably named Ole Golly It can be hard for a modern rea

    I re read Harriet the Spy last week and found myself noticing for the first time how deeply subversive and honest it is Even by contemporary standards it s a bracing read hard to imagine what reading this book must have been like when it was first published in 1964 Something that moved me this time around was how defiantly Harriet and Janie resist the half hearted efforts of their parents to make them behave with conventional femininity, and how quickly their parents give up that schem

    I genuinely don t like giving a book a bad review, but if it weren t that I have an obsessive need to finish a book once I start it, I would have put this one down the first time Harriet started screaming like a toddler A large part of the reason I was so put off by this book, is that I had set my expectations that I was reading a beloved and light hearted childhood book about a girl who learns some life lessons after she is caught spying on some friends and neighbors.These expectations were wa

    Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to introduce you to a very important person to me Harriet M Welsch, aka Harriet the Spy She has been there for me on than one occasion when I ve needed her and she has not let me down I don t anticipate she ever will.I read this book at least once every year or two, or at least generally when things in life are rather poopy I consider this the macaroni and cheese of the literary world, my mashed potatoes, my pudding I just had my thyroid surgically r
