    This book s creativity and sweetness deserve higher feedback by themselves but the output is dampened overall because we are not placed inside this semi fictional story Being entirely epistolary prohibits readers from witnessing action, a build up to events, and from feeling reactionary emotions when details unfold Every aspect is muted because what we receive are fragments succinct summaries in short letters, to a boy s musician uncle Karl, in Salzburg The central story is reduced to us wat This book s creativity and sweetness deserve higher feedback by themselves but the output is dampened overall because we are not placed inside this semi fictional story Being entirely epistolary prohibits readers from witnessing action, a build up to events, and from feeling reactionary emotions when details unfold Every aspect is muted because what we receive are fragments succinct summaries in short letters, to a boy s musician uncle Karl, in Salzburg The central story is reduced to us watching Karl answer his mail.Ludwig Von Beethoven, a reportedly formidable player of emotional music when he used to hear, boarded in different places to work on his masterpieces The boy, Christoph is the eldest child of Karl s sister perplexed fictional boarders in Vienna Ludwig acts peculiarly beyond the state of deafness He composes his Ninth Symphony and rehearses its concert there, to which they are invited Joining key scenes would have brought them to life such as attending this famous concert, which was portrayed as first being pounded out in their jangled earshot A few participatory pages feeding correspondence would have let me experience a spectrum of emotions and subsequently grade Beethoven Lives Upstairs higher.It was called for in particular to show Karl s Vienna visit When he and his correspondent were together, it lifted a need for letters I would have enjoyed seeing him greet his sister, Christoph, and twin girls as well as meeting Mr Beethoven and the neighbourhood dog, Metronome, whom the family adopts after If it is true history that Ludwig used to rent accommodations in common people s places, when he must have earned money for a fine home, it would be interesting to know why I read that there is an audio performance of this story that delivered it far better It won our coveted Juno Award in Canada

    This book is about a young boy, Christoph, who is living in a house with the famous conductor, Beethoven Christoph writes to his Uncle Karl telling him first how he wishes that Beethoven was not there because he makes so much noise, but then after learning how great Beethoven is and why he does the things he does through his Uncle, Christoph learns to appreciate Beethoven, the work that he does, and his final masterpieces.This book was very easy to read because 99% of it is written in letter fo This book is about a young boy, Christoph, who is living in a house with the famous conductor, Beethoven Christoph writes to his Uncle Karl telling him first how he wishes that Beethoven was not there because he makes so much noise, but then after learning how great Beethoven is and why he does the things he does through his Uncle, Christoph learns to appreciate Beethoven, the work that he does, and his final masterpieces.This book was very easy to read because 99% of it is written in letter format, so it was quick to finish It also has pictures accompanying just about every page so it made it a little better to get through I did not really like this book after I read it though because I felt that there just wasn t that much to it It gave some good information about Beethoven but I just really did not understand why Christoph was writing his Uncle in the first place they don t even really know each other.As a future teacher, I probably wouldn t use this book I do not feel that it has a lot of educating information to it and I don t feel like my students would really gain anything from it I might suggest it to a student that wants to read a little bit about Beethoven, maybe if they are doing a project on the life of him or something, but even that is pushing it for me

    I have seen this movie many times and read it when it first came out with my children.A perfect story and book Beethoven towards the end of his life and plagued by his deafness moves into the home of a widow as he is finishing the composition of his 9th symphony While the public loves his music, the people that live around him do not understand the agonies and frustrations he deals with While any disability is horrid, for the finest musical genius to struggle so is unimaginable The young son I have seen this movie many times and read it when it first came out with my children.A perfect story and book Beethoven towards the end of his life and plagued by his deafness moves into the home of a widow as he is finishing the composition of his 9th symphony While the public loves his music, the people that live around him do not understand the agonies and frustrations he deals with While any disability is horrid, for the finest musical genius to struggle so is unimaginable The young son of the landlord at first is beyond frustration with what he feels are the eccentric occurances of Beethoven Written as a series of letters between a 10 year old lonely Christof and his uncle asking for advice on dealing with Beethoven, the book covers 3 years of growth and acceptance

    A young boy living in Vienna finds his family s life turned upside down when his mother rents a room to Ludwig van Beethoven The story is told through letters exchanged between Christoph and his Uncle Kurt, a university music student who had a hand in the arrangement Although the strongest versions of the story are the original audio CD and the HBO video, the book is a worthwhile read Readers must make many inferences as they read, as the epistolary form only hints at certain story details F A young boy living in Vienna finds his family s life turned upside down when his mother rents a room to Ludwig van Beethoven The story is told through letters exchanged between Christoph and his Uncle Kurt, a university music student who had a hand in the arrangement Although the strongest versions of the story are the original audio CD and the HBO video, the book is a worthwhile read Readers must make many inferences as they read, as the epistolary form only hints at certain story details For ages 8 10

    A great story, written via letters between an uncle and his nephew, Christoph Christoph relates what it is like living below Beethoven Facts that are known about Beethoven his genius and his struggles and interwoven throughout the book This is a great springboard for a study or discussion of Beethoven

    Beethoven lives upstairs gives some insight as to what it might be like to have a genius but deaf neighbor Christoph, the little boy who tells the tale by writing letters to his uncle at first is mortified by Beethoven s strange behavior Christoph s uncle continually reminds him to picture himself in Beethoven s shoes and eventually he does Great historical fiction


  10. Casey Casey says:

    I enjoyed this book A fan of historical fiction, it s not often you find something with this much information targeted to kids Something that would be fun to do a report on or as a class read in upper elementary school A lot of factual information, but plenty of room for learning about the time period and musicians.
