    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. this book is really good for people who is starting english like me. It talks about a man named Merrick. He is very very ugly because he looks like a elephant and everybody laugh at him for his face. At the end he dies because he sleep in the wrong side. His skin was all blue.

    I've read about the story before but this was my first time reading it in the form of a book. I cried towards the end. A person can have so much love in his heart yet considered ugly due to his looks. But a person can be beautiful yet be ugly on the inside.

    It took 80 min. to read this. 7 words to summarize - Elephant - body - show tent - a man - to love - a doctor - disable What is the part of your body which you dislike? - It's my legs. I don't like my legs because of muscle. If you were a disable person or not healthy, How would you feel? - I couldn't accept my body. However, I would try to become cheerful.

    He tried to sleep on his back that night, but his heavy head came off the bed, and he broke his neck. ^ ^ This is the most tragical end you can imagine :( I saw the movie long time ago https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080678/... of course it had more details than this short cut story but it's give you the main idea about The Elephant Man.

    I hate death when it comes so fast to the kind hearts and leaves nothing but memories. Very harmful memories.

    Along reading I liked it but thought this was going to be a "ok" writing, then the ending came so sudden that my tears gushed! Now I call back the writer gave a very simple story almost with "no gorgeous vocabs" but touched deep down to my "human heart".

    He loved reading and talking about books. At first he did not know many books: the Bible, and one or two newspapers, that's all. But I gave him some books of love stories , and he liked them very much. He read them again and again, and talked about them often. For him, the men and women in these books were alive, like you and me. He was very happy. He did not usually sleep on his back.

We are human beings dealing all the time with the same creatures, what hurts us ,amazingly :/, hurts them as well, maybe in a much deeper way for some "creatures". This version is super simplified, maybe some day in the future I'll reread it. The certain thing is that I'm gonna watch the movie 3> by God's willing. can't say I had fun, but I must confess, I felt humane... sometimes it's more important... تمت بحمد الله

    There is no sympathy at all in this world, because you will never be the elephant man, like this book. In this way, the kindness of people in this book to the elepant man is also taking him as a creature. So, the feelings is same as hate or afraid in some way. But sometime, we need that kindness, to persuade us that we're human, not cold blood animals. Maybe the lighttower more adapt him, at least he maynot die due to that reason, trying to be a person not him.

He maynot see the beautiful landscape of country or so many other things, but he can have the own view of the ocean. He maynot see so many famous people, but he can talk to those who take him as the same.

    The elephant man is ugly, his mother doesn’t want him, children don’t want to play with him, adult also laugh at him. He is lonely and hopeless but he never give up and never hurts anyone, he hopes he can like you and me have friends to talk, with grit and help finally he made friends. He dead in bed peacefully. This tragic story tells me never judge people with their appearance.

    When most of us are bothered by the pursuit of money, fame and happiness, some are just in want of being recognised as a man and living like a man rather than a creature.

    Reading the simplified version for school's Literature syllabus. And when I say simplified, I mean with really simple language. My 15-years-old kids shouldn't have much problem with it, but reading this leave me wanting more. More details, more character development, MORE EVERYTHING. But now that I also know the ending, I'm conflicted if I should read the original version. This kind of ending doesn't go well with me.

In the end he died because he was sleep wrong side and his skin all blue. Thing that I learn from this book is be a good people, try to people another people to make they happy, if you saw people have ugly face or scare body that doesn't mean they are bad people or they are money, in deep of they heart they skill are human like us and maybe they are a good person like this guy in this story.

    This book is a very good book and very interesting story. And I understand the story because they didn’t use difficult words. It's called “ The Elephant Man” It’s talk about a ugly man and he looks like an elephant so they called him an elephant man everybody laugh at him. I spent about 3 days to read it. I think this is so short story. It has nice covers.
