    The other day my girlfriend said something about her love of tomato and mayonnaise sandwiches, to which I naturally replied Yeah Do you like to roll around and pretend you re an onion, too And she had no idea what I meant.How do you not know Harriet the Spy She has to rank competitively with the greatest literary characters of all time so spunky, so misund

    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 i

    If you ve ever spent any time wondering how fictional characters like Olive Kitteridge, Eleanor Oliphant or Don Tillman got to be who they are, you need look no further than Harriet the Spy.It s all here, in this book.Harriet is a lot like these adult characters, but she s a child, an 11 year old girl And, we learn quickly, she never suffered abuse or neglect Neither

    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, locate

    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.

    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 con

    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 n

    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 spy
