Praise for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

“Gloriously eccentric and wonderfully intelligent.”
The Boston Globe

“Moving. . . . Think of The Sound and the Fury crossed with The Catcher in the Rye and one of Oliver Sacks’s real-life stories.”
–Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

“This is an amazing novel. An amazing book.”
The Dallas Morning News

Praise for Mark Haddon

“Mark Haddon is both clever and observant, and the effect is vastly affecting.”
The Washington Post Book World

“A wise and bleakly funny writer with rare gifts of empathy.”
–Ian McEwan, author of Atonement and Saturday -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.


That Mark Haddon's first book after "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" was a poetry collection perhaps came as a surprise to his legions of fans; that it is a collection of such virtuosity and range did not. The gifts so admired in Haddon's prose are in strong evidence here too - the humanity of his voices, the dark humour and the uncanny ventriloquism - but Haddon is also a writer of considerable seriousness, lyric power and surreal invention, and "The Talking Horse and the Sad Girl and the Village Under the Sea" combines bittersweet love-lyrics, lucid and bold new versions of Horace, comic set-pieces, lullabies, wry postmodern shenanigans (including a note from the official board of censors on "18" certificate poetry), and an entire John Buchan novel condensed to five pages. Consolidating Haddon's reputation as our most powerful myth-weavers and spell-makers, "The Talking Horse and the Sad Girl and the Village Under the Sea" also confirms him as one of the most outrageous and freewheeling imaginations at work in contemporary literature.

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The title is highly misleading. This book is actuallly a collection of poems - NOT the book he became famous for with the title "The curious incident of the dog in the Night-Time".

Perhaps Amazon should rename this.

HASH(0x9d3235b8) von 5 Sternen Disappointing 1. August 2006
Von Robert Meador - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I loved The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time-- truly a wonderful, moving, and powerful novel. I also love poetry, so I was psyched to check out this book. Unfortuantely, I was deeply disappointed. The poems aren't especially bad, just not very good. They kind of meander along without saying too much that's very interesting and without offering any particular finesse with language. A couple are slightly smarmy self-referential poems about poetry and poets, which is usually not a good sign from a first book of poems. There were some occasional pleasures. I really liked this one called New Year's Day: "I walk on powdered/shell for three miles/to the spur's blunt head/where, each year,/something of the ocean/slows and falls/and turns into a yard of land,/and something of the emptiness/we spin through/silts and settles/so that we can walk/a little further/out into the fog." Not bad, but that's about as good as it gets, and there aren't many like that. It's really not bad, just kind of mediocre, which is disappointing after the remarkable job he did with his novel. If you're interested, I think the best thing to do is go to a bookstore and read a few of the poems before you buy.

HASH(0x9d3238f4) von 5 Sternen As witty and charming as his novel 1. August 2006
Von Catherine Weber - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I bought this book because I loved his novel and because I love poetry. I was not dissappointed. The book is lovely to look at for starters. The poems made me smile and think, rather than wonder what the poet meant.

HASH(0x9d323e1c) von 5 Sternen Poems? 6. Februar 2009
Von Violet - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I fell in love with this author's book The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, but this was disappointing. Haddon should stick with writing novels. It was good for him to try a different writing style, but his naturl talent lies in setting up an entire plotline and placing himself in characters' mindsets.
