    I can only give this book by Elizabeth von Arnim 2 stars The main reason was a combination of a blasé story line told in 500 pages I have not reached the half way point of Elizabeth’s novels but this was by far the longest novel in length and I am not sure why she strung out the novel to such a length for the story she had to tell I think if she had pared this down which I feel she easily could have done I would have given it 3 stars For 500 pages there’d better be a damn good reason to go that long and not just for writing clever or funny things for that duration IMHO 😑I should note that three blogger’s reviews were extremely favorable towards this novel which goes to show you how much I know 🙁Brief Synopsis Two 17 year old twins Anna Rose the older by several minutes and Anna Felicitas are living with their aunt and uncle in England Their father was German and their mother was British and had died hence why they were now living with relatives in England The relatives tired of them as well there was a war going on and the girls were half German and there was anti German bias and shunted them off to America to live with other relatives Anna Rose tells Anna Felicitas they should be named Christopher Anna Rose and Columbus Anna Felicitas because they were off to discover America On the journey by sea from Great Britain to New York a man in his 30s Mr Twist befriends them because they appear to be lost in the ways of the world He is a nice guy and looks after them Turns out one set of relatives doesn’t want them so they end up sticking with Mr Twist and they end up in California near Tijuana after taking a train from New York Chicago to California A second set of relatives can’t take them in The novel takes place while Great Britain is at war with Germany in WWI And I can’t say anything much because then I would give away the plot what’s left of it So here are a couple of interesting things that I could glean about this novel• One of the characters near the end of the novel is a convalescing British seaman who was wounded during the Battle of Jutland May 31 June 1 1916 a naval battle in which Britain won over Germany Elizabeth von Arnim’s nephew British whom she was fond of died in that battle when the Black Prince British was sunk The nephew was a commander on the ship Supposedly Elizabeth was hit hard by the deaththis occurred at about the same time one of her daughters Felicitas stuck in Germany because of the war died of pneumonia on or around May 1 1916 Note that one of the main character’s names in the novel is Anna Felicitas Elizabeth has 4 daughters and a son but she supposedly was particularly close to Felicitas Felicitas was perhaps the daughter who most resembled her mother; she was bright very musical and had “imaginativeness gaiety charm” Elizabeth found Felicitas “too sweet and clever for anything – so extremely and delightfully and intelligently interested” From • It turns out that Elizabeth about four months after her daughter’s death sailed from England to New York and her ship was chased by a German submarine as it left British waters just as Anna Rose’s and Anna Felicita’s ship was chased by a German submarine in the novel While in the US Elizabeth took a train ride from New York Chicago to California just as did Anna Rose and Anna Felicita in the novel It is said that “This mode of slow transport unfortunately not practical to us as we make our way to California by plane allowed ‘Elizabeth’ time to absorb the changes in climate as they passed across the country She was able to make use of this when she came to write her novel Christopher and Columbus 1919 which includes a magical description of the transformation in scenery and climate that occurs on arrival at San Bernardino This for ‘Elizabeth’ was where winter ended and the beginning of warmth light and hope began” • So it appears Elizabeth took snippets of her life and put some of it into this novel As usual Elizabeth has a humorous way of writing A couple of examples• “he would have been very handsome indeed if he hadn’t had a face”• A woman who is acting as a chaperone to the twins Mrs Bilton is thinking “If Mr Bilton could see her now he would certainly turn in his grave Well she was a woman of wit of adhesiveness to her guns if Mr Bilton did see her and did turn in his grave let him; he would she dared say be comfortable on his other side after all these years”There were also statements made regarding African Americans that were racially tinged eg “The black porter whose heart happened not to be black” “After he had gone and punctually to the minute of her appointment an over flowing negress appeared and announced that she was the coloured lady from South Carolina to whom the gentleman had written” Which made me uncomfortable I suppose I have to remember the prevailing ways in which Blacks were viewed in 1909 in Great Britain and the USReviews read from the second edition of the novel Macmillan and Co Limited St Martin’s Street London April 1919 The novel had also been re issued by Virago Modern Classics in 1994

    I took this book on vacation with me to a sunny warm destination with palm trees and it turned out to be the perfect read sweet and fluffy sort of like cotton candy without the toothache at the end This was my first von Arnim A few people have recommended Elizabeth and Her German Garden to me but reading the descriptions of that book did not motivate me Really? A year in the life of a woman learning to garden? Umno It's only after reading this book that I can see how something like that could be charming Von Arnim's writing is witty and seemingly carefree but with a bit of a bite just under the surface In some ways it reminded me of LM Montgomery's style the humor spark and the sense that the author herself is enjoying the story with the readerHowever when it comes to characterization I still prefer Montgomery Her characters seem to leap off the page with spirit In comparison von Arnim's characters were a bit flat they were defined as a type and didn't budge from that Mr Twist is described as a motherly sort of man a uiet gentleman who grew up stifled in the company of his mother and sister The twins are naivete incarnate It's sometimes very difficult for the reader to believe they are seventeen years old The ending was an issue for me The book is 500 pages long For about 425 pages I was content Then it started to drag Then it ends I would have liked character development a slightly faster plot and then the trim ending because it's the only appropriate way to end a fluffy read Overall though this was a delight to read This book enhanced by my vacation locale took me to a place where it felt like nothing will ever go wrong and when things do they will definitely turn out right I may have to check out that German garden sometime

    I thought this would be a fun light read but it turned out to be a good example of a book that has not stood the test of time Amusingly the bookjacket states that it's set on the eve of WWII given that the book was published in 1919 naming the wrong war should have been an easy mistake to catch I read 131 pages and it had yet to arrive at a plot A novel's got to have something at stake; even if it's just can the protagonist keep the surprise party a secret? there has to be something going on that makes us want to keep reading I will get my dose of escapism elsewhere

    At the beginning of WWI two orphaned twins find themselves en route to the US to find their fortunes having various comic adventures along the way But the back story is complicated The twins are Anna Rosa and Anna Felícitas and they give themselves the nicknames of ‘Christopher” and “Columbus” Although they have distinct personalities it took me awhile to sort out which twin was which While raised in their father’s home in Germany the Annas think of themselves as English like their mother and like the aunt and uncle they were living with in England after her death Unfortunately no one else thinks of them as English partly because of their German accents and partly because of their German citizenship and with the beginning of Britain’s involvement in WWI rising anti German feeling leads their uncle to send the twins off to the US to stay with friends while they look for employment By the way the twins are seventeen beautiful and naive which leads to various comic scenarios based on miscommunication and the twins’ self satisfied assurance they know what’s whatThere are some funny scenes and some interesting characters the twins meet along the way including a middle aged inventor and an elderly talkative widow The first part dragged but the story moved uickly when the twins traveled to California and pursued a new career Note The author seems to think Acapulco where the twins spend the second half of the book is in California instead of MexicoAs a modern reader I knew about anti German feeling during WWI and WWII and anti Japanese feeling during WWII including the unfair internment of Japanese American citizens in the USA If the author addressed this type of wartime hysteria she could have added an interesting perspective especially since she was married to a German aristocrat and lived in Germany before the first world war But this book is a product of its times published in 1919 and in the author’s presentation of the German characters the twins encounter on the boat and in the US she endorses typical stereotypes Apparently the author was okay with the anti German prejudice; she just didn’t think their half German ancestry should be held against her two main characters Somewhat inconsistently she several times refers approvingly to the twins’ “Junker” Prussian noble social status but if they are “not” German do they still keep their German social status and is it a good thing to have?Sometimes I can “forgive” a flawed book because it’s “of its time”’ but in this book the issue was central to the story and the characters There are also a few stereotypical statements about other ethnicities

    With Christopher and Columbus Elizabeth Von Arnim has written a light hearted comedy reminiscent of Three Men on the Bummel but with a hint of Don uixote’s social commentary In her hands the story is charming and humorous rather than funny with just a threat of things going to a darker place This is very family friendly There is no bad language and never than a hint of potential naughtiness Pre teen daughters not demanding princesses or magical beasts may find themselves taken by this view of the world that once was and any adult wanting a soft read that is never saccharine can spend a few hours with a comfortable book It almost has a bite but only almostThe title comes from the names the two central characters give to themselves The time is World War I just before America’s entry The two girls are 17 yr old non identical twins named Anna Rose and Anna Felicitas von Twinkler The ‘von’ matters because they are half German The story finds them as orphans landed into the hands of their late mother’s British relations Anti German feelings and the twins unmistakable rolling ‘R” s make England an uncomfortable place for the girls and so for their less than hospitable near relations The decision is made to ship them to America where it is hoped some vaguely known friends will take them inAboard ship they are immediately faced with the prospect of being torpedoed and give themselves the names Christopher and Columbus in an effort to help them see the trip as an adventure of discoveryNot much to laugh at so far Things begin to get better when they are taken under the wing of the rich not handsome Mr Twist He is a kindly good man with no motive other than a sense that these two pretty girls need protection and an appreciation for their exaggerated innocence and intelligent insouciance is not entirely the right word The girls have and hold on to a very practical sense of the world but one that is uncomplicated and well no they can be complicated the best words are hard to select Mr Twist is completely charmed and we like him will find ourselves alternating between admiration for their strength of will and underlying grit even as we can be frustrated by their ignorance of the world outside of themselvesThe trio travel together first to the homes of the people they had been sent to visit then to Mr Twist’s most unpleasant New England Mother and on to California Individual adventures can come close to being very dark but Ms Von Arnim never gives us over to the worst of what might have beenChristopher and Columbus is a comedy in the classical definition The best way to enjoy it is to try and be like the Girls A little too innocent but open to next adventure

    This is an old book published in 1919 and my nice smelling copy was made in 1919 It's a story about twin girls orphans named Anna Rose and Anna Felicitas what kind of name is that? who have the misfortune of being half English and half German during World War I It's just the story of what they do in response to this It took me a long time to decide whether I liked the two girls or not because in some ways they take initiative and take their future into their own hands but they are also really annoying because they're so naive and they worry about the most trivial things The ending saved it though I liked the ending Favourite character mmm probably Mr Edward Twist

    Delightful fluff Enjoyed every page Save it for a down time in your life when it can serve as the escapist fun you need with that freshly spiced sardonic skewering of particular personalities with which we have been burdened in our society Got it free on Kindle but had to dig its' getting harder and harder to find those free versions Or maybe my tastes just run too obscure? Well wake up people and read this stuff Then I will be part of mainstream culture without having to give up any essential parts of myself And until that happens I have LOADS of these Elizabeth von Arnim books to enjoy

  8. says:

    A delightful story that is fun to read not just to finish Anna Rose and Anna Felicitas are seventeen year old twins who find themselves orphaned and without a home or even a country since their father was German and their mother was English World War I has begun and few people are willing to take in even children with any German connections They are sent away on a ship to live with an uncle's acuaintances in America but nothing seems to turn out as it should

    I fell in love with the Twinkler sisters and enjoyed their adventures as they progressed from Pomerania to Acapulco Typical of Elizabeth von Arnim beautiful language humour and wit
