    The most impressive book I ve read before I was twenty years old My parents made me read it whe I was 13 or 14 years old and it made a VERY deep impression on me It is the story of an ordinary girl that ends up due to circumstances in a group of friends who smoke pot and are drinking After a while of sticking to these two, she slips further and further down Especially the nearly clinical description of her life and the things that happen has always stayed with me Since then I ve always be The most impressive book I ve read before I was twenty years old My parents made me read it whe I was 13 or 14 years old and it made a VERY deep impression on me It is the story of an ordinary girl that ends up due to circumstances in a group of friends who smoke pot and are drinking After a while of sticking to these two, she slips further and further down Especially the nearly clinical description of her life and the things that happen has always stayed with me Since then I ve always been afraid to try drugs I do not like it when I lose control of myself, to be dependent on something.This book has certainly made sure I never even have been around drugs, in any form whatsoever So, as a warning it has worked very well for ME.This book an oldie, about taped together is going to be read by my son when he ll be old enough Hopefully it ll make a terrible impression on him too

    Living in Rudow and commuting to work through Gropiusstadt, it struck me that I should know the memoir that the neighbourhoods are famous for The book, put together from interviews with Christiane F., a teenaged heroin addict, her mother, and authorities working to fight drug use in West Berlin in the 1970s, follows Christiane from her early childhood, when she was abused by her father, who was an alcoholic, to her teenage years, when, desperately hoping for acceptance and love, she sank deeper Living in Rudow and commuting to work through Gropiusstadt, it struck me that I should know the memoir that the neighbourhoods are famous for The book, put together from interviews with Christiane F., a teenaged heroin addict, her mother, and authorities working to fight drug use in West Berlin in the 1970s, follows Christiane from her early childhood, when she was abused by her father, who was an alcoholic, to her teenage years, when, desperately hoping for acceptance and love, she sank deeper and deeper into the club scene around the Ku damm, with all the associated drug problems By the time Christiane figured out that addiction doesn t make you cool, she was hooked, selling herself for 40 marks a go at the Bahnhof Zoo to maintain her habit Christiane doesn t romanticize or preach which distinguishes this book from others of its kind , but lets her experiences serve as a warning in themselves Though I found it impossible to sympathise with her, I found the book completely riveting

    We Children from train station Zoo were children hooked on heroine in West Berlin during the 70s They used to mingle on the Zoo station to sell sex to buy heroine This book is based on a true story of 14 years old Christine F., prostitute and a junkie As kids, my friends and I were dealing this book like a drug It was shocking and spectacular, as Christine didn t tell us imitating Mr Mackey from South Park Don t use drugs, drugs are bad, mmm kay , but she really poured things l We Children from train station Zoo were children hooked on heroine in West Berlin during the 70s They used to mingle on the Zoo station to sell sex to buy heroine This book is based on a true story of 14 years old Christine F., prostitute and a junkie As kids, my friends and I were dealing this book like a drug It was shocking and spectacular, as Christine didn t tell us imitating Mr Mackey from South Park Don t use drugs, drugs are bad, mmm kay , but she really poured things like they were brutal, real and scary It s not really right thing to say that this book maybe saved some lives, or that it made few people addicted to drugs, as I don t know that, but I can definitely say that I loved it Generations of us loved it It was a window to a different world, as in that time I didn t realize that Christine s world is all around Not maybe as dark and cruel like hers, but all around yes But that realization came with growing up

    When I was growing up and in my teens I had to read Christiane F Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo true story about a 13 year old Heroin Addict who is a prostitue Many years later when she became 51, a new book came out How her life went after the first book For many years I wanted to read this book, but it was hard to get or when I could get it, it was too expensive and it was the first years only available in German I can read German, but I am better in Dutch and English So when I got my er When I was growing up and in my teens I had to read Christiane F Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo true story about a 13 year old Heroin Addict who is a prostitue Many years later when she became 51, a new book came out How her life went after the first book For many years I wanted to read this book, but it was hard to get or when I could get it, it was too expensive and it was the first years only available in German I can read German, but I am better in Dutch and English So when I got my ereader, I got the ebook The first 30 pages I couldn t get into it, found it really sloppy how it was written, but then the story started out of her own mouth It is sad she never beat her addiction She never seemed to want to stop, never went into any kind of therapy Some years aren t described that well for instance, the years she had her son It was nothing ever happened during that time I do however am glad I read it and I am not disappointed in the book

    I had to prepare a presentation on Bydlowska s Drunk Mom in my creative non fiction course and this book titled Station Zoo in English was mentioned by the author I was curious about it, since growing up in Berlin I kept hearing it mentioned, yet I never knew what it was really about.Whatever somebody could have told me about it would not have been enough to caution me on the journey I was about to embark upon.The book resonated with me on a very personal note, because part of Christiane F s I had to prepare a presentation on Bydlowska s Drunk Mom in my creative non fiction course and this book titled Station Zoo in English was mentioned by the author I was curious about it, since growing up in Berlin I kept hearing it mentioned, yet I never knew what it was really about.Whatever somebody could have told me about it would not have been enough to caution me on the journey I was about to embark upon.The book resonated with me on a very personal note, because part of Christiane F s story took place in Gropiusstadt, a neighbourhood in the district of Neuk lln in Berlin my old neighbourhood I was born in the hospital just 3 km from my old apartment house from my bedroom window I could see the roof of one hospital wing.Whenever the narrator mentioned a place in Berlin especially in my old neighbourhood, I knew exactly where she referring to It gave me an odd sense of nostalgia, but also brought back a lot of the same frustration Christane F talks about.It reminded me of the endless rules and regulations that made living in Berlin almost unbearable I don t mean rules kids have to follow so that they don t get run over by a car or accidentally put themselves in harm s way I mean rules that were applied to the playground, such as the one just downstairs from my apartment The rules were listed as follows no playing between 1pm 4pm, a helmet must be worn at all times, no running, no yelling, no dogs, no bikes, no roller skates, no climbing, no swinging on the swings too high It was extremely hypocritical, since we found tons of cigarette butts in the sand, along with cat shit young adults were screaming and laughing until well past midnight and kids were sexually assaulted or having their first sodomizing experience in the bushes that bordered the playground.I understand the narrator s point that it certainly felt like kids were viewed as the problem, even though they were the victims and just looking for a place to belong.That was exactly what she was trying to do try and find a place where she felt accepted and belonged.The narrator also went to the same school I went A school that prided themselves of being one of a kind, yet it failed to properly educate their students A mentality of competing, of being better than everybody else was nurtured.It was no surprise to see some of my classmates showing up for Latin class smelling like booze and meeting friends of friends that were so high all they could do was shout moonface at everyone.The pressure got too much, and all teachers and other grown ups could do was tell them that once they get into the real world they are just a number, they should have it better than the previous generation It is almost hilarious to see how they blindly they spoke and acted.During my research I came across a few newspaper articles that reported on the residents of Gropiusstadt still harbouring sour feelings about Christiane F s book giving the neighbourhood a bad reputation It is curious that Station Zoo is part of the German literature curriculum in high schools throughout Germany, except the schools belonging to the Gropiusstadt school district.Overall, I sympathized with the narrator s struggles, made me extremely thankful for life I have now I only wish I had read it sooner I would definitely recommend it to everyone, although I have yet to find an English copy.ElliotScribbles

    I loved Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo and was naturally curious to know what happened to Christiane F in all those years following its release Unfortunately, Mein zweites Leben left me underwhelmed and with a bad taste in my mouth First of all, the book lacked any structure which made it kind of annoying to read I also disliked all the name dropping and didn t quite believe that Christiane s relationship to the Keel family was that close In many instances throughout the book the author com I loved Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo and was naturally curious to know what happened to Christiane F in all those years following its release Unfortunately, Mein zweites Leben left me underwhelmed and with a bad taste in my mouth First of all, the book lacked any structure which made it kind of annoying to read I also disliked all the name dropping and didn t quite believe that Christiane s relationship to the Keel family was that close In many instances throughout the book the author comes off as very uneducated which I found removed much of the story s credibility.The absolutely worst part though was the author s highly breederific stance She says that had she known how positive the impact of a child on one s life could be she would ve had her son much sooner This highly subjective comment raises the question why she didn t take better care of her son if having a child was so important to her Why did she choose a completely unsuitable guy ten years her junior to have a child with and why did she continue taking drugs Why did she decide to run away to Holland It s really hard to feel any compassion with someone when their actions smack of utter stupidity While I know that Christiane F has generated some notoriety and is a public figure, I think her descriptions of the media hounding her are somewhat exaggerated Why would anyone want to stalk her and enter her apartment in her absence All in all a weird read, and it took away some of the magic of the original book

    I was a huge fan of the original book and couldn t wait to know what happened to Christiane I think comments that say this book is not as interesting aren t fair simply because it s normal that you get a stronger reaction reading about a child s addiction rather than an adult s You can clearly see the same strugles here, 30 years later.That being said, I must say I also agree with coments about Christiane s weirdness and self centredness, starting with the fact that she ruined her relationshi I was a huge fan of the original book and couldn t wait to know what happened to Christiane I think comments that say this book is not as interesting aren t fair simply because it s normal that you get a stronger reaction reading about a child s addiction rather than an adult s You can clearly see the same strugles here, 30 years later.That being said, I must say I also agree with coments about Christiane s weirdness and self centredness, starting with the fact that she ruined her relationship with her son but this is normal considering her life and what she struggles with It s a miracle she even got this far.In the end things just get weird People following her and invading her privacy Masons, illuminati What Still, it addsquestions like a good book should Her character and stories aren t good enough reasons for a bad review that s who she is.What bothered me is the style of writing retelling which is very confusing Then I read that Sonja, the journalist, barely finished her degree and didn t even read Bahnhoff ZOO when she started the interviews No serious journalist would do that.All in all, an interesting book for the fans, you just have to puteffort into it

    The last time I read this book I was probably 15 years old and very much impressed by the protagonists story and not to get me wrong I was shocked by her experiences Meanwhile, 15 years older I just had to reread this classic from my youth and was still moved by it In my opinion, everyone should read it at least once
