It treats very serious questions in a truly admirable way and gives hope at the same time. Pure, honest, brave and magical.

I must have read it about ten times by now, several times as a child, and several times with my own children, and students. And I have read quite a few reflections on the book, as well - mostly discussions about whether or not she was right to break the taboo of death in a children's adventure book.
What remains with me are two things: The first chapter is of the kind that makes you cry helplessly: Devastated, he confides in his older brother Jonathan, who reassures him that there is a wonderful adventurous life after death, in Nangijala, and that he will just be waiting there until Jonathan joins him. Things develop differently, however, and Jonathan dies himself, trying to save his brother from a fire.
And shortly afterwards, the boys reunite in the wonderful fairytale world of Nangijala. So far, so kitsch.
The brothers Lionheart ( edition) | Open Library
But of course Nangijala is a dark place as well, with a village behind a wall, reigned by the evil Tengil and his soldiers, supported by a superpower weapon, a dragon called Katla. Nobody will be surprised to hear that the novel was published at the height of the Cold War. I still feel a shiver down my spine when I think of the boys sneaking in behind enemy lines, using the password: From what, I would like to ask: Freedom of choice?
In the black and white world of Astrid Lindgren's fairytale, the brothers set out to save their world out of the glorious conviction that there are things you have to do, regardless of the danger you encounter: Jonathan was hurt by Katla. And this is where the story loses its magical power and credibility for me, and where I feel Astrid Lindgren does not face up to reality, even if it is just the reality you find in a story universe.
The boys decide to commit suicide to move on to the next world, Nangilima, where the stories are better and life is easier. In a chain of eternal worlds, there can be multiple happy or sad endings.
But I don't particularly like that message, and have always found it hard to convey to my children. Not because of the theme of death, but because of the careless attitude towards the reality we currently live in and can't stomach. If we just move on whenever life does not turn out the way we expect it, and move from adventure to adventure, ignoring the fallout of the reality we dodge by seeking an easy way out, there is no real incentive to change the premises of the world we live in for the better, or to try to figure out the reasons for the problems we have, in order to prevent them from getting worse.
Close your eyes and jump! I always thought that was contradictory to the message that you are a piece of dirt if you do not do what you think is right.
But then again, Astrid Lindgren might have seen clearly what humanity does all the time: There is one beautiful idea expressed in the story, that I love reading over and over again: View all 6 comments.

It is the book that made me believe in something greater than myself when I was about ten years old. It is, to me, one of the most wonderful stories for children and young teenagers.
By the time I was 18, I had read it three or four times, later I read it to my oldest daughter and now to my youngest. And I still struggled to hold back the tears. It is about the love between two brothers, about life after death, abo This is the most important, most magical and most precious book from my childhood. It is about the love between two brothers, about life after death, about believing in goodness and fighting evil — though that is what I see as an adult now.
With this book alone Astrid Lindgren made an indelible imprint on my childhood. Years ago, I taught a course on fantasy fiction during which I had long discussions with my students about the genre. My students were educating themselves to become future English teachers, and the fantasy genre is a must in that connection, at least here in Denmark where it has been popular for a long time.
A school teacher I knew at the time had read this story aloud to her pupils in school and had made sure to tell the children not to throw themselves from tall buildings because there was no such thing as Nangijala — the magical place that Karl and Jonatan go to after they die early on in the book, so no spoiler. But more importantly: To take away the hope and the magic that such a story offers is to misunderstand what the genre offers, not least this book. Shortly afterwards, my mother died quite unexpectedly.

The brothers Lionheart
Beautiful, heartbreaking, uplifting and timeless. Astrid Lindgren Forever! I've said this to you before. Jan 31, AnnaLund rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone who has a beating heart. The book that made me who I am today.
The one that taught me to stand up for my friends. The book that showed me that Somethings you just HAVE to do, or else you are not a real human being, just a little speck of dirt. Of course, I read it in the original Swedish, but anyone who has half a mind of reading something truly healing should give this a go in English. It is well translated, and she IS, after all, the mother of Pippi Longstockings.
I rest my case. Jonatan, jag ser ljuset. View all 8 comments. Yksi lapsuuden ristiriitaisimpia lukukokemuksia nyt lukupiirin tammikuun kirjana. View 1 comment. Bevat alles wat een goed verhaal voor kinderen en volwassenen nodig heeft. Sep 12, Kirstine rated it it was amazing Shelves: Oh man, I am an absolute sucker for sibling relationships have I mentioned this before? Maybe I have , if not, know now that I am. The relationship between Tvebak and Jonathan the Danish names is so unbelievably precious, and leaves me in tears, even now, despite it being a childrens book.
Having a brother myself, I understand the devotion you can have for a sibling; I'd do anything for him. I'd face Oh man, I am an absolute sucker for sibling relationships have I mentioned this before? I'd face my own death if it meant saving him, and I wouldn't even hesitate. Because I love him more than anything and nothing else is as important.
I love this book, and I have loved it since I read it for the first time as a kid. It's a wonder of a children's book, really a masterpiece, handling some very difficult themes, and many of the exact things that I value so highly and have struggled with myself: And this presents all of these things in a lovely, heartbreaking and hopeful tale.
There's no doubt I'll be reading this to my own children some day. Reading childhood favourites again as an adult is risky business, and with Astrid Lindgren it can be devastating. Not because her books disappoint; they don't.
