5.0 von 5 Sternen A Very Fast 800 Pages 4. März 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"Dombey and Son" (1848) may be about 800 pages long, but it is so rich with drama, suspense, bad omens, melodramas, comic relief, and captivating characters that you do not realize how long the book is. In addition, it is clear from the construction of this masterpiece that Dickens had this work well thought out from the very start. The reconciliation scene between Paul Dombey and his daughter is a scene of such rare beauty even to an English major! Along with "Bleak House" (1853) and "Hard Times" (1854), this is in my opinion a phenomenal masterpiece beyond expectations!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A watershed 9. Mai 2000

This book marked the beginning of Dickens' mature style, and it holds up very well today. The dark portrait of the loveless marriage among the Dombeys is remarkably compelling. As ever, there are moments of brilliant comedy to lighten the mood, here involving the characters of Captain Cuttle (a fine, warm creation) and Babstock. A must read for Dickens fans who want to understand how his art developed.

4.0 von 5 Sternen What the waves tell us. 28. Februar 2000
After tackling the subject of greed and selfishness in "Martin Chuzzlewit",Charles Dickens turned his critical eye on pride and selfishness to achieve another masterwork in "Dombey and Son"."Dombey and Son" presents a vivid "criticism of life" teeming with unforgettable characters and scenes,written with an almost surreal intensity.The novel,like most of Dickens' others,is hauntingly lyrical and is embued with a quiet melancholy."Dombey and Son" tells the story of the destructiveness of a rich merchant's deadening pride on those around him.It details his own "comeuppance",when after ruining much of the lives of those who love him,Dombey is nearly destoyed by the villains and fools surrounding him,who have used his wife-a tragic and desperate golddigger more proud than he-to strike at him."Dombey and Son" illustrates the old message that nothing but love and kindness matter,that we and everything we have will ultimately perish and pride and selfishness are the frailest goods to be bought in this vanity fair.Yet the book's many original characters gives the conception fresh life and its comedy both genial and satiric lightens the sad gloom of such a moral tale.There are(as typical of Dickens)many grotesques in the novel-some good(the affectionate and good-natured Captain Cuttle,the saucy and defensive Susan Nipper),some bad(the sour martinet Mrs. Pipchin,the apoplectic and sycophantic Major) and some just plain evil(that emblem of consummate hypocrisy-Mr. Carker)."Dombey and Son" is like a grand feast where there is so much being served,that you don't know where to begin-and this for some readers may not be a good thing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent book. 23. November 1996
Von Ein Kunde
Dombey and Son focuses on the life of Florence, the unwanted
daughter of Mr. Paul Dombey. She earned the dislike of her Father by being born
a girl, rather than being the son and heir that he wished for.
When a son finally is born, Mr. Dombey cannot gain his love --
while Florence, in her simple innocence, can -- which lends more
to Mr. Dombey's dislike of her.
Mr. Dombey's wife dies, as does his son, leaving him and
Florence alone together. Rather than seeking friendship with his
daughter at this point, Mr. Dombey withdraws from her, leaving
Florence to grow up alone, and vainly dream of a day when her
father might learn to love her.
After a long while of this avoidance, Mr. Dombey marries
a cold, hard woman named Harriet; who never loved him and felt that
he purchased her with his money. At this point, Dombey almost
relents toward his daughter -- until he notices a growing friendship
between her and Harriet. Once again Florence has innocently gained
the love of one who Dombey cannot, causing him to not only
harden toward her, but to his cold wife.
Florence's dreams of having her father learn to love her
are abruptly shattered as her father's arrogance and her step-mother's
hatred drive the Dombey household toward a bitter and infamous end.
Dombey and Son is one of Dickens's finest novels; it is complex,
riveting and passionate.
