    1. Wow. Just wow. Flawlessly executed. Very few books alter the way I actually think; this one did. Also, I don't know if the author did this intentionally (I suspect he did) or if it was just my pre-existing prejucides and psychology background coming into play, but for a large part of the book I had a certain perception of the kid, the one that the adults in the book had, and then it gradually, and then abruptly, with a certain incident that had been hinted a lot, changed. And I felt guilty for m [...]

    2. Burton Rembrandt is an intelligent and sensitive eight-year-old boy who excels at spelling. But he has been sent to The Children's Trust Residence Center for autistic, sociopathic and generally "disturbed" children after expressing his love for his friend, Jessica, in a way that has horrified his parents and her mother. Forbidden to see his parents and not allowed to read the letters from Jessica, Burt spends most of his time in the Quiet Room, writing his story on the walls. Only a young doctor [...]

    3. A veces quisiera que todo se acabara y así dejar de sentir soledad y dolor. Mis libros siempre los leo en el momento adecuado, y esta historia no fue la excepción. ¿Para qué leer Cuando yo tenía cinco años, me mate?1. Por que el autor supo narrar perfectamente la voz de un niño y como este nos cuenta su vida escolar, su primer amor y sus desgracias y frustraciones dentro de un psiquiátrico. 2. La manera en que maneja el suspenso el autor es fascinante, ya que te engancha en la trama, deb [...]

    4. young people can be terribly harmed 'for their own good,' by the arrogant assumption on the part of adults that our experienced, scientific and 'rational' point of view is infallible. Shelley'sFrankenstein advised us to quit trying to play God, but we're still doing it, especially to our kids, who can't do anything to fight back. i survived years of unwarranted psychomeddling in my childhood when it was in fact my mother who needed counseling and medication, and this book captures exactly the wa [...]

    5. Me enteré del libro por pura casualidad, y sin duda el título ya captó mi atención. No averigüé demasiado del mismo, y el mismo día lo compré. En cuanto a la historia, realmente no estoy muy segura de cómo sentirme. Definitivamente tiene un final muy turbio a mi parecer, pero se trata de un libro que lejos está de ser de terror, tiene más bien una estrecha relación con la salud mental, lo psicológico y el drama. Narrado por Burt, un niño al cual internan en un instituto de menores [...]

    6. Aunque el titulo sea contundente no os asustéis. Nos encontramos con Burt, un niño que ha sido ingresado en un centro de salud mental infantil por un motivo que hasta el final del libro no se conocerá. Escrito desde la perspectiva del protagonista, no pierde el estilo, no defrauda, no te sientes engañado en ningún momento por su lenguaje infantil, que es ágil y bien llevado durante sus casi 200 páginas, todo un mérito. Un libro cargado de sentimientos (tanto alegres como tristes) y lleno [...]

    7. This book started off rather confusing, but quickly picked up the pace and became a deeply haunting and intelligent story. Is Burton just a crazy depressed child who needs to be locked away? Was he born a bad seed? Or is his strange and frightening behavior just a cry for his family and teachers to see and understand him?

    8. Uma obra confusa, que se perde em inúmeros momentos ao tentar recorrer a uma mescla de estilos. Não se trata de um livro ruim, mas não compreendi o hype em cima dela.

    9. 2,5Es entretenido, me ha gustado, aunque Burt y Jessica, que son los protagonistas principales, no me han parecido demasiado creíbles en algunas ocasiones para los 8 años que se supone que tienen. El final ha estado bastante bien, lo que pasa es que el autor se pasa toda la novela mintiéndonos deliberadamente haciéndonos creer que va a ocurrir algo más dramático y perturbador.

    10. Siempre me pasa un poco lo que me ha pasado con este libro cuando leo una novela que ha tenido muy buenas críticas. Aunque me guste mucho no puedo evitar decepcionarme porque en mi mente me la había imaginado todavía mejor. Cuando tenía 5 años me maté cuenta la historia del pequeño Burt, encerrado en un reformatorio / clínica no se sabe muy bien por qué. El lector se pregunta a sí mismo por los motivos de esta reclusión durante toda la novela. Las pistas que va dando el autor nos hace [...]

    11. Very effective narration style: one is left with the distinct impression that one has read an account written by an actual eight-year-old - from the misinterpreted meanings of words to the clumsy sentence structure and writing styleI read this all in one day, I could barely put it down. It's not the most gripping or thrilling book I have ever read, but it is deeply intriguing. I felt as though I was put in the position of a psychologist, analyzing the behaviour of a seemingly 'disturbed' child. [...]

    12. Кратка книжка, откровена, трогателна и ужасно тъжнаizhenjor/2013/04/kogato-

    13. Pas entièrement convaincu par ce livre, qui pourtant est doté d'une grande aura. Les pensées de Burt étaient touchantes, la façon de réagir des adultes, la tristesse de ces réactions et cette solitude étaient très bien écrits, cependant le tout manquait à mes yeux de quelque chose sur quoi je n'arrive pas exactement à mettre le doigt. Bref, pas vraiment séduit même si je l'ai quand même terminé.

    14. Non lasciatevi assolutamente ingannare dal titolo che lascia perplessi e dalla copertina un po' anni 80: è un romanzo meraviglioso.Il titolo originale è semplicemente "Burt", il nome del protagonista, e quello italiano è la prima frase del libro. Che parla di un bambino rinchiuso in un Centro di neuropsichiatria infantile, ma in un modo talmente coinvolgente ed ironico che è impossibile non amarlo. Burt ha fatto qualcosa di terribile a una sua compagna, e per questo è stato strappato alla s [...]

    15. Le jeune Gil, âgé de 8 ans, a été admis à la Résidence Home d'Enfants les Pâquerettes dans la section psychiatrie. Il y est à cause de ce qu'il a fait à Jessica, une camarade de classe. Ce qu'il a fait est ignoble. Mais Gil ne comprend pas la portée de son geste et refuse de coopérer avec le Dr. Nevele, son psychiatre. À l'aide de ses mots d'enfants, le jeune garçon nous raconte son histoire.La force de ce livre réside dans l'écriture de l'auteur, et bien sûr le magnifique travai [...]

    16. Ho adocchiato questo libro in biblioteca attratta dal titolo che mi ha chiamato, mi ha attirato a sè. Questo libro mi ha aperto un mondo, un mondo che conoscevo solo in superficie, il mondo dell'autismo, di cui si parla sempre troppo poco, come fosse un tabù, un qualcosa da evitare. Un mondo che ho imparato a conoscere grazie a Burt, un bambino di 8 anni che viene rinchiuso in un istituto di neuropsichiatria infantile per colpa della stupidità degli adulti. Burt ci accompagna sin dall'inizio [...]

    17. This is a fantastic book! Written convincingly from the perspective of linguistically-intelligent eight year old (Burt), this is a very disturbing account. There are elements of this book (Burt's character, in particular) which are left open to the reader's interpretation. This means that there is a lot to think about once you have finished reading.This book is not suitable for everyone as it is implicitly alarming towards the end. However, I found the elements relating to the children's "Home" [...]

    18. Детският свят отвътре, често неразбираем за възрастните, пъстър, искрен, забавен, тъжен, истински.Светът на големите през очите на едно дете.Разтегливата и неясна граница между нормалните и различните.Хауърд Батън освен писател, е и психолог на деца-аутисти и професионален [...]

    19. Interesante historia narrada por un niño, que nos revela su mundo y la forma en la que ve las cosas. La situaciones reales y sus invenciones sobre la realidad. La, podríamos llamar injusta, forma en que los adultos perciben sus vivencias y comportamientos. Su "mala" conducta que es una causa del trato que recibe de sus padres y demás adultos, pero el único culpable ante los ojos de los demás es él, Burt, que su única intención fue ayudar por amor, por amor a Jessica.

    20. Étonnement, je n'ai pas vraiment aimé cette lecture, bien que séduite par l'imagination débordante de l'auteur et le style d'écriture, mais il y'a tout de même quelque chose qui cloche, j'avais juste envie d'en finir le plus tôt possible, je ne me suis pas retrouvée dans le monde du petit Gil, c'est bien dommage !

    21. "Когато бях петгодишен" не е лесна книга. Тя е объркваща, леко налудничава и потискаща.Тя ви завлича в света на Бъртън и ви носи из водовъртежа на живота и съзнанието му. Кара ви да усетите безсилието на това да си в онази крехка възраст, в която за възрастните си просто мърдащ [...]

    22. Loved this! The writing is so great and has a fantastic pitch between inocence and darkness. The child's voice comes through so well, it's beautiful, I felt so awful for him. I don't want to say too much for fear of giving something away but just read this!

    23. Branch out a little. This one's known as The Catcher of the Rye of France, because, though the author is American, AMERICA REFUSED TO PUBLISH IT (until recently). It is awesoome. It made me laugh and cry outloud. The author is a clown who works with autistic kids. He can also write.

    24. Engrossing and re-readable, while expressing some great stuff about what it is to be a child. What more can you ask for?

    25. Contrairement à l'Autobiographie d'une Courgette (qui partage un style naïf et un personnage principal très jeune), je n'ai pas du tout aimé ce livre. Je l'ai trouvé long et inintéressant, et la grande révélation à la fin m'a laissée perplexe, je n'ai pas compris pourquoi on nous faisait subir tout ça "pour ça". Et j'ai détesté tous les personnages, ce qui n'aide pas du tout.

    26. Un texte touchant, dans lequel Gil, un petit garçon, se retrouve envoyé en maison de correction après avoir fait du mal à Jessica, une copine de classe. Gil raconte son histoire avec toute la poésie et l'imagination dont il est capable. Il se heurte à l'incompréhension des adultes, dans un monde plein de tabous et de règles. Coincé par ses peurs et des incompréhensions, Gil se rebelle et se révolte, aggravant son cas. Mais il ne fait que lancer un appel au secours. C'est une histoire [...]

    27. Ho questo libro in libreria da chissà quanto tempo. Non ricordo nemmeno l'occasione in cui l'ho comprato, ma sono sicuro di averlo fatto. E' in effetti un tipo di libro che in un certo periodo della mia vita avrei comprato, letto e magari anche amato. Poi è semplicemente successo che, digerito una gran quantità di libri strani, scomodi, sconvenienti, ho cominciato a distinguere con giudizio tra opere buone e opere cattive. E questo libro, ahimè, rientra tra le seconde.Libro strano, scomodo e [...]

    28. This was familiar territory for me as it was a bit of a mix of: The Catcher in the RyeNaïve. SuperPortrait of a Young Man Drowning: A Novel and a tiny bit of The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches in that it is narrated by a young person (boy) who may or may not be autistic, is confused/troubled and has had something bad happen which you don't get to know about until the end. It has also been likened to Girl, Interrupted and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in that questions of "what is mad [...]
