Pressestimmen

“An epic such as Mark Twain might have given us.”—Henry Miller

“The very best novel ever about the American West.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Spellbinding . . . [Crabb] surely must be one of the most delightfully absurd fictional fossils ever unearthed.”—Time

“Superb . . . Berger’s success in capturing the points of view and emotional atmosphere of a vanished era is uncanny. His skill in characterization, his narrative power and his somewhat cynical humor are all outstanding.”—The New York Times

Format: Taschenbuch
Like many others who reviewed this book, I first read it (in high school) after seeing the movie. The movie was a real eye opener for me, for the first time giving me a sense of Indians as real people, struggling to stay themselves and maintain their way of life against the relentless & overwhelming campaign of conquest, destruction & genocide by Whites. It inspired me to read this book, which I found to far surpass in richness, character development and detail what I had thought to be an excellent movie. After reading it the first time I think I read it annually for the next ten years, and several more times since. Each time it has moved me to laughter, anger, and without fail tears at the end. I can't begin to do it justice, even trying gives me "...a pain between my ears..." and some of the reader reviews have already done a fine job of describing it. There's just a couple of points I'd like to add. Jack Crabb has always reminded me Huckleberry Finn. Through close personnal experience, each character evolves in his understanding and appreciation of a race he'd been raised to believe inherently inferior to whites (Jack Crabb's rearing by Indians does not begin till his tenth year). Niether Jack nor Huck are saints who always "knew better". Along the way, both struggle with feelings of doubt, guilt & shame when they find themslves favoring the Indians or Blacks over Whites. Both think badly of themselves for doing so. Like Mark Twain, Thomas Berger puts us into the head of a White male who struggles with the conflict between his own experience and the stereotypes he'd been raised on and which shape the White society of his time. Both books are marvels of insight into human nature.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

This book cannot fairly be reviewed in such a small space. I just want to assure anyone who stumbles on it here and sees "Little Big Man" classified as a Western novel: this is not Louis L'Amour territory! This is one of the funniest, most heart-rending stories ever concocted using historical fact and brilliantl imagination; Berger gives the reader some idea of what it must have been like to live in the American West during the submission of the Plains Indian tribes, and doesn't spare our feelings in the process. Not that it's a diatribe. LBM is a novel, first and foremost a wonderful read. It also happens to be one of the few great novels made into a great movie -- one suspects because of Dustin Hoffman's obsession with "getting it right"

I have my students read this book as a supplement to an American history survey course. It is an good source because Berger's fiction mirrors what often happened during the European-American conquest of the West. From hemanahs to Custer's band playing during the Washita attack, Berger shows that truth and fiction are often separated by a very thin line. At the same time he illustrates that during the battles over the plains, no one group had a monopoly on civility or savagery. Despite of these strengths, I suspect that the real reason my students enjoy the book is because it makes them laugh.

I saw the movie Little Big Man when it first came out, and again a few years later. It has been one of my favorite movies of all time. Now I have read the book, and enjoyed it even more. The book is more "realistic" and depicts the brutality of both whites and natives. Unlike the movie, where Custer is portrayed as a bit of a fool, the novel shows him to be a complex, evil man, hungry for power. The touching story of Lavender, an ex-slave, was left out of the movie entirely. I highly recommend this book.

I read this book last year and it quickly became one of my favorites. Jack Crabb belongs to both the white and the Cheyenne communities, but he never fully fits into either. This book follows him as he drifts back and forth between the two over a period of 20-30 years, the period of the greatest american expansion into the west and the greatest efforts against the plains indians. This isn't "Dances with Wolves". Jack Crabb has admiration and disdain for elements of both U.S. and Cheyenne civilization.

Von Kekoa Gabriel am 13. Januar 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
This may be one of the best books written in the last fifty years not only from an entertainment perspective but from a literary one as well. Berger's mastery in spinning the web of an 121 year old man who's been everywhere and seen everything in the Old West is spectacular. If you're a fan of western history as I am or just a fan of good writing, Little Big Man, will fit your bill. I've read this book countless times and taught to high school level students with nary a complaint.

Format: Taschenbuch
The is the best book I have read on the clash of cultures that resulted from European-Americans encountering the indigenous, stone-age culture of the plains indians. The nobility of the plains indians and the genocide of the Europeans stand in stark contrast. The author's knowledge of detail is amazing and his story-telling ability and humor make for a great style. Make no mistake, this is a classic and deserves to be studied and taught as one.
