Pressestimmen

An absorbing, irritating, and terribly amusing book, that brings to American humor a new and disturbing voice. San Francisco Chronicle His style and wit transmit so much energy that energy itself becomes the message. Brautigan ... makes all the senses breathe. Only a hedonist could cram so much life onto a single page Newsweek A truly marvellous book. It's like watching one of the great American sitcoms of the past few years -- Gordon Legge He writes with a kind of free-wheeling, zany magic Guardian An amazing story... You'll feel better about the whole world after reading this Los Angeles Examiner -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

5.0 von 5 Sternen Frogs, Dynamite, and Prostitutes - Brautigan at his finest 13. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If you read nothing else by Richard Brautigan, read "A Confederate General From Big Sur." Mere words are inadequate to properly describe this book, and the majesty contained within. Brautigan, master of the simile, is at his finest as he spins an off-beat tale containing (though not restricted to): frogs, dynamite, prostitutes, booze, and a man named Lee Mellon. Forsaking all possessions and the amenities of "civilized" life (a notion nearly inconceivable these days), Lee Mellon and the narrator, Jesse, embark upon an adventure in a place called Big Sur. An adventure not only in the physial sense, but in the metaphysical as well. Reading Brautigan in the context of our times, it is hard to imagine how the audience of the 1960's embraced his work. While his works may, to us, appear strange at times, we have grown accustomed to such eccentricities. But in the 60's it was fresh and new. One can only speculate if we have somehow missed out on some aspect of Brautigan by having read his books 30 years after they were written. But the mere fact that his work stands the test of time is a testament not only to his books, but to the man himself. But, alas, i stray from the topic of this missive. You want my review? It's a damn good book. Now go and read it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Rollicking Good Fun! 21. Juni 2001
Von Donald Ford (dford@midrivers.com) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
If there's one thing the world lacks, it's a good supply of well-written, funny-as-heck books. Luckily, aside from A Confederacy Of Dunces, we have this little gem. The characters are drunks, druggies, skanks, prostitutes & nutzoids. The pace is brisk and the imagry vivid. Most of it seemed to be part of my own life, but just where do you find weed that's so potent that 4 people smoking 5 joints stay high for well over 2 hours?! If you want to spend a day or night having a good laugh over a great book, pick this one up. You'll laugh out loud. And as Martha Stewart says...."It's a good thing".

5.0 von 5 Sternen Into the Rabbit Hole 13. Februar 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Brautigan's excellent novel is definately worth the quick read, and then worth a second read to catch all his language play. Having grown up near Big Sur, this book was particularly funny as I believe Lee Mellon is still in residence there.

Brautigan's description of drugs, drinks, frogs and the commas of Ecclesiastes are all done in a straight forward style that made me laugh out loud.

One of my favorite paragraphs: "He broke the seal on the bottle, unscrewed the cap and poured a big slug of whiskey into his mouth. He swallowed it down with a hairy gulp. Strange, for as I said before: he was bald." A great read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A literary staple 22. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Not only a must-have for Brautigan fans, but I believe, a novel that should be present on the bedside bookshelves of all. Great characters, and Brautigan is at his best when he goes off on little tangents or flashbacks. This book has one of my personal favorite such allusions, that being one refering to a comic book hero called 'the mound' (this is not the correct name, for it has been some time since I read the book, but you get the idea), which was this hero who never did anything particularly heroic, just kind of slothed around in a 'mound-ish way.

4.0 von 5 Sternen moving characters in a brautigan book 29. Oktober 1997
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
If I was comparing this book to other books I would have given it a nine, but I'm comparing it to "Trout Fishing in America" so I give it a seven. This is one of his novels with a distinct story lines. Also, the characters are great. They're even better than his usual band of wackos. You really feel for them. I gave it a seven because I just didn't understand the point. Perhaps I just read to many brautigan books in a row. That can be disorienting. If your a fan, i recomend that you try it. If you've never read anything by brautigan I recomend his most popular , and possibly best, book, "Trout Fishing in America.".
