Format: Taschenbuch
Initially a fan of such classics as "Anna Karenina" and "Brothers Karamazov" I expanded my literary horizon to unthinkable boundaries after Tom Robbins' "Still Life With Woodpecker" fell into my hands. Robbins' insight on human behavior on both a social and intimate level along with satyrical humor and an outrageous plot make for a perfect blend. Robbins tells the story of a red-haired princess who falls for a rebelious bomber and their effort of "making love stay." The story line ranges from bizzare Argon aliens vacationing in Hawaii to Emirate sheiks building commercialist pyramids. Robbins' vivid imagination and outrageous similes paint a classic love tale in a crazy psychedelic picture. His original diction, and odd "interludes" create a truly authentic book, which makes for an enjoyable read and a crazy ride into a hyperbole of our time.

I just happened to pick up this book and read it a few days after I left my dearest love in Hawaii for reasons unknown. When the heroine flys off to Hawaii in the first few chapters, I fell into the book and devoured it. The "making love stay" theme was actually inspiring to me even with all the wacky events that occur. It makes me believe that anything could happen. It will make you believe in true love again. Read it. Lend it. Read it again.

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Joseph C. Landers am 18. Januar 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
Tom Robbins is a genius. I have read all of his novels. This is definetly one of my favorites. Still Life With Woodpecker explores everyones need for love. It defines how we see ourselves and each other. It dares to tell us, in an off the wall story line, how we love one another and always for the wrong reasons. The plot to this book is unpredictable to say it best, although Tom Robbins writes in a very unique way. You will either love his style or not be able to read twenty pages without remembering high school "literary works of art". I personally read this book in about 5 hours. I picked it up and the world ceased to exist. This is one of those books you can get lost in, and you begin to realize why you love to read, which to me is to escape the boring reality of the real world. In books people are who they are and do what they say. I also recommend Jitterbug Perfume, by Tom Robbins. This is my favorite out of all of them. If you are looking for an author similar to Robbins, the closest I have found is Richard Grant, I recommend Tex and Molly in the Afterlife. Enjoy Tom Robbins, you'll never quite read anything like him ever again.

Format: Taschenbuch
I was reading this book while working as a file clerk in a large corporate company and I loved the book so much, that I would sneak into the back of the file room each day to read it. Needless to say, I missed out on 3 days of work! This book brings up the question "How do you make love stay," and Robbins offers up some enticing answers. My once brand-new paperback is now a mess of highlighted paragraphs and folded pages. "Woodpecker" is a brilliant, witty and thought-provoking novel that is impossible to put down once you pick it up. Do yourself a favor and read this book. If anything, you might gain some insight regarding life, love and the hidden meaning behind a pack of Camel cigarettes.

Format: Taschenbuch
In Still Life, Robbins explores what makes a person an outlaw, as opposed to just a criminal. The main characters are Princess Leigh-Cheri, who brings to mind most of Robbins' other female leads, particularly Cherry of Skinny Legs and All, and Bernard Wrangle, aka The Woodpecker.
As usual, Robbins tries to incorporate renegade theology into his book, but this time, it doesn't quite seem to gel. His research is usually much more plausible, but this time, he flies by the seat of his pants, perhaps reflecting the chaotic interests of Bernard. It was dissappointing, however, that the interesting and creative use made of myth in Skinny Legs and All or Jitterbug Perfume was missing from Still Life. The characters are interesting though perhaps harder to actually like, and Robbins' usual social commentary lacks the sincerity and conviction of other novels. The section dealing with the alternate world inside the pack of Camel cigarettes is the most realistic and interesting (and surreal) part of the novel, though that could have been what Robbins had in mind to emphasize the absurdity of society.
Like his other novels, Robbins incorporates sexuality almost casually within the novel, as causually as contemporary society does. Robbins points out the hypocrasies and harsh realities that lie within our society and are (alas) taken for granted--after all, he asks us, why should his novel be shocking when, to some people, child abuse isn't? Why the selective indignation? Why should we judge his characters harshly when all kinds of people do the same thing and we forgive or pretend not to notice?
All in all, Still Life is not Robbins' best work, but is par for the course as far as his usual themes go. There are flaws within this novel that are not present in some of his others, but Still Life is worth the read.

Von Ein Kunde am 8. September 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
I bought this book as something to relieve my boredom on holiday but I soon found myself reading it even when we were out visiting different places. The way that this book is written (in short paragraph form) soon grabbed my attention. I do not read books easily as I find them difficult to get in to yet the way this is written means that you can never get bored no matter how long you read it for. It is said to be 'a sort of love story' and that is exactly what it is. A strange tale of a princess, a mad bomber and how to make love stay. Princess Leigh Cheri is a strong willed girl with her own ideas about the world and how things should be dealt with. She is well brought up though sometimes naive and this proves to be true when she looses her heart to Bernard, a man with a natural affinity for blowing things up. It tells of his imprisonment and her long battle to keep their love going. This book looks into romantic individualism, social activism and the problems with redheads. As long as you follow this book very carefully then you will end up being completely satisfied with it. It's changing views of the problems of today's world (and pyramids) leaves you always wanting more. Once you have picked up this book you will never put it down. As a 17 year old I thought I would not enjoy this book but it is a good read for all ages.
