Mehr über den Autor

Kurt Vonnegut wurde 1922 in Indianapolis geboren. Er studierte an den Universitäten von Chicago und Tennessee und begann dann, für verschiedene Zeitschriften Kurzgeschichten zu schreiben. Seinen ersten Roman, Player Piano (Das höllische System), veröffentlichte er 1952. Es folgten viele weitere Romane, u.a. The Sirens of Titan (1959) (Die Sirenen des Titan), Mother Night (1961) (Mutter Nacht), Cat's Cradle (1963) (Katzenwiege), God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater (1964) (Gott segne Sie, Mr. Rosewater), Welcome to the Monkey House (1968) (Geh zurück zu deiner lieben Frau), eine Sammlung von Kurzgeschichten, sowie Breakfast of Champions (1973) (Frühstück für Helden), Slapstick, or Lonesome No More (1976) (Slapstick), Jailbird (1979) (Galgenvogel), Deadeye Dick (1982) (Zielwasser), Galapagos (1985) (Galapagos), Bluebeard (1987) (Blaubart) und Hocus Pocus (1990) (Hokus Pokus oder wohin so eilig?). Während des Zweiten Weltkriegs geriet Vonnegut in deutsche Kriegsgefangenschaft und wurde Zeuge der Luftangriffe auf Dresden, eine Erfahrung, die er in seinem berühmtesten Werk, Slaughterhouse Five or The Children's Crusade(1969) (Schlachthof 5 oder der Kinderkreuzzug), verarbeitete. Außerdem veröffentlichte er einen Band mit Reden und Reportagen, Palm Sunday (1981) (Das Nudelwerk), sowie die autobiographische Collage Fates Worse than Death (1991) (Dann lieber gleich tot).

Format:Taschenbuch
To paraphraze Winston Churchill, if you don't weep over Vonnegut's acclaimed social satire at 20, you have no heart. If you still weep while re-reading it at 35, you have no brain. By masterfully portraying the abyss between the "dirt-poor" and "filthy rich", wittily arguing that the latter are far more useless than the former, Vonnegut only casually mentions the fairly well-washed millions in between; the ground on which the demarcation lines are blurred, and his personal rules of humanism are frequently set aside in favor of garden-variety street smarts. Vonnegut's trademark quirky characters, vivid style, and tight, beautifully wrapped up plot are, as always, very useful weapons in his emotional blackmail: if you don't see the world on his terms, if you take neither side, be ashamed of yourself! Be very ashamed of yourself...

3.0 von 5 Sternen A Hip Sixties Re-Telling of "Harvey." 2. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Like Elwood P. Dowd (the hero of Mary Chase's play "Harvey") Vonnegut's Eliot Rosewater is a wealthy drunk with heart of gold who drives his loved ones batty and nearly ends up permanently committed to the booby-hatch because of his uncommon generosity and love for the ordinary people of his small home town. Instead of a large invisible rabbit, Eliot chooses as his soulmate science-fiction writer Kilgore Trout, who becomes a sort of imaginary best-friend to Eliot, and, like Harvey, only asserts his actual presence at the end of the story. The book is better than the play (or the James Stewart movie, for that matter), but it is not one of Vonnegut's best. In "Palm Sunday" Vonnegut gives this book an "A." I'd rate it a "C." It's nowhere near as good as "Mother Night," for instance.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of Vonneguts Masterpieces 10. April 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
"God Bless you, Mr. Rosewater", is one of Kurt Vonnegut's greatest books. It is based around Eliot Rosewater, a warm hearted, eccentric millionare, and presendent of the Rosewater Corporation, a incredibly rich foundation that is passed along from father to son. He abandons the high life in NYC, and moves to Rosewater County in Indiana, his family's home. Eliot begins to help the poor people (which is all of Rosewater County) with their personal problems, and soon becomes the "father" of them all. A lawyer, seeking the Rosewater fortune for himself, sets out prove that Eliot is insane. I won't tell you the ending, but suffice to say that it is excellent. Vonnegut shows us thatmoney isn't everything, and a poor person from Indiana is just as important as a Senator from New York. A matchless book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Classic... 4. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is truly a pearl. This work and "Slaughter House Five" are the two anchors of my Vonnegut collection. As I began to collect his books, I was like an avid junkie who couldn't wait to get her next wry-wit fix from Mr. Trout and company. I have gone through 2 copies of "God Bless you Mr. Rosewater" after being worn out from many re-readings but no matter how tattered & torn, I still have them -- tape, notes in the margins and all! My collection, all in paperback, is one of my prized posessions that I hope to share with my child as my mother had done for me. You will enjoy this work and if it is your first experience with Vonnegut, what a treasure you have found!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Total thievery 3. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
After reading a vast assortment of Vonnegut's work I found this book unsatisfying in the extreme. Usually honest, often brutally so, Vonnegut works this book into a crecendo of cheesiness. What had potential to be a genuine classic like "Breakfast of Champions", "Dead Eye Dick" and "Slaughter House Five", became nothing more than a cheap commentary on the human race with a sappy 'love thy neighbour' quality. If I want to be scammed by an unimaginative ending I will go to Hollywood; movies are less time consuming.

4.0 von 5 Sternen all in one little book 6. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Vonnegut gives us an excellent commentary on the dichotomy of social hierarchies, as well as making us laugh out loud. He conflicted the drunk with all the money and the runty lawyer who wants to swindle him out of it. We can see that there are factions within factions and utterly wealthy men who still have hearts in this fictional world adorned by the ideas of a very inventive Mr. Kilgore Trout. Volunteer firemen, fishermen and senators all in one little book. Classic Vonnegut.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not one of Vonnegut's more interesting reads 7. Mai 2000
Von A. Bayes
Format:Taschenbuch
This book has all the makings of a classic Vonnegut text. However, it lacks depth, and the plot never really thickens. By the end of the novel, I was asking myself, "Wait, how did we get to this point in the story?" The overall idealism which is used to give character development to Rosewater takes away from the reality of the situation. The novel does have rewarding characteristics, but I do not think this should be the first book by Vonnegut that one reads.

Thus did a handful of rapacious citizens come to control all that was worth controlling in America. Thus was the savage and stupid and entirely inappropriate and unnecessary and humorless American class system created. Honest, industrious, peaceful citizens were classed as bloodsuckers, if they asked to be paid a living wage. And they saw that praise was reserved henceforth for those who devised means of getting paid enormously for committing crimes against which no laws had been passed. &quote;
