5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best books I have read 30. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This is an absolutely stunning book in terms of Hope Clearwater's character and the events that unfold as the book progresses.
Evocative of the senses and smells that hit one in Africa, the character development of Hope unfolds into a compelling drama based on her relationship with her increasingly insane mathematician husband(?) and her relationship with the chimpanzees she is studying.
The book conveys a very clear message about the harsher and more sinister side to man's character, drawing strong parallels between the chimpanzee's behaviour and that between the scientists in the research camp where Hope is based.
The book has several strands to it and each a fully developed into a unified whole. Boyd's exploration into, and description of, chaos theory is excellent in terms of putting this across in non-technical terminology and a stroke of genius regarding how it fits into the story's development.
One of my top six novels
- Of Human Bondage - Birdsong - Charlotte Gray - Jude the Obscure - Coasting (Jonathan Raban) - The Misfit

5.0 von 5 Sternen Intelligent, haunting, satisfying 18. November 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
I found this a fascinating book - intelligent, well written, well paced and with wonderful turns of phrase. But what was particularly remarkable was the weaving together of an extraordinary range of topics, emotions, flavors and moods. Mathematics, science, divergent cultures, the senselessness of human and primate violence, the tragedy of mental illness, the poisonous effects of greed and grasping - it's all there. I highly recommend it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An Excellent Multi-Leveled Read 14. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Once again, Boyd draws the reader into a world of seemingly disperate topics (in this case: chimpanzee behavoir, mathematics, botany, the nature of love and mental illness) and weaves the material together in captivating fashion through impecible reasearch and the gift of pure storytelling. I was impressed at how convinincingly he presented the passion with which scientists approach their work, from the excitement/anticipation of discovery to the often monotonous and meloncholy process of experimentation. While less entertaining (and humourous) than his "Blue Afternoon, it's still a very worthwhile read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen a modern masterpiece that you can't put down 1. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Boyd really came into his own with this book - a multi-layered exploration of the nature of relationships, mental health and higher maths, mixed with African scenery and painful memories. We follow the life of Hope Clearwater, a biologist/botanist who falls in love with a tortured mathematician - an all too believable character whose limited glimpses into the deeper truth of maths sends him into despair when the glimpses become more fleeting and incomplete. Written as an interconnected series of memories and events, you are effortlessly transported to a different country and a civil war that encompasses the ludicrous nature of some African conflicts. The characterisation and dialogue is effortless and complete, leaving you with the events and personal histories of Hope swirling around your mind for a long time after you put the book down Mixed into the pot is the enormous ego of the head of the chimpanzee research project for which she works,(often mirrored by the behaviour of the researchers themselves) a thought-provoking insight into animal group behaviour, and poignant explorations of the nature of despair and ultimately redemption. Finding a degree of hapiness with Osman, a fighter pilot for hire who creates insect and paper flying machines, and who ultimately disappears, leaves Hope on Brazzaville Beach, pondering the nature of her strange and often beautiful life. I defy anyone to read this book and not be carried along by the wonderful and elegant prose style, the content and the wonderful story. A page turner that conceals a lot of deeper meanings, and my most borrowed (and recommended) book. Buy it.
