Adrian Healey is magnificently unprepared for the long littleness of life; unprepared too for the afternoon in Salzburg when he will witness the savage murder of a Hungarian violinist; unprepared to learn about the Mendax device; unprepared for more murders and wholly unprepared for the truth. Unprepared or not, Adrian is led through an adventure that takes in toast, Piccadilly rent-boys, Charles Dickens’s lost pornographic novel, an international espionage conspiracy, disgraceful scenes on the cricket field and a machine that compels its victims to tell the truth.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ah, he is a Frying genius. 15. Oktober 2001
Von Ein Kunde
Well, Adrian does not belong to the kind of people one would like to call reliable and he most certainly is not easy to deal with. But luckily he is one of the most witty and interesting characters created so far. Dunno where Stephen Fry gets his brilliant ideas from let alone his ability to play with language. Adolescent Adrian is one of the biggest liars that walk this earth - lying to teachers (good boy), to friends, to parents, to other relatives and very convincing and imaginative he is, too. Being convinced that he is the only "real" person in a strange game called life he has some serious problems with imagening others to have feelings as well. He creates his own world where he can be master, fooling everyone else just for the hell of it. Very fortunate for him after having spent a few years at a public school and unnerving everyone there he meets his master in Cambridge - old Professor Trefusius. "The old fart" finds him very amusing, challenges him and finally takes Adrian on a journey across Europe with dubious and dangerous people following them. It is a quest for some device, which, in the wrong hands, could cause considerable damage to the world. But nothing is what it seems and the quest will lead into Adrian finding out that there is a real world after all. Deep emotions play a major role in Stephen Fry's debut novel and he surely knows how to bring them alive. In case one has read his autobiography (first part of it) some clear connections with his own life will be discovered. But believe me, this only makes his outrageous first novel even better. Hm, and it will make you think again about the reliabilty of "old" manuscripts of classic writers. The world will be fooled.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wit and a love for the English language 10. Mai 2000
I put myself at a disadvantage by reading Stephen Fry's second novel, The Hippopotamus, before reading The Liar. In so doing, I fostered expectations that The Liar would not live up to. The Hippopotamus is a much funnier, racier and scathingly witty work than Fry's first novel. But, after the initial shock of having my expectations dashed, I was rather pleasantly surprised at how engaging, charming and unpredictable this novel is. Well, okay, I wasn't really all that surprised. Stephen Fry is so good a writer that one book--one chapter in fact--is enough to convince you he is unlikely to disappoint. Fry writes with such clarity, flare and adeptness that one is left basking in the sheer joy of the English language. Fry lifts the veil of dreadfully dry, pretentiously hip, consciously urban and premeditatedly mainstream English that dominates literature today to reveal a language that is once again fresh, smart, vibrant, intellectual and tantalizingly naughty. Delightful! Forget that The Liar is chock full of sordid trysts (real, imagined and fabricated), homosexual and bisexual liaisons and scandalous accusations about the sexual traditions of English public schools, this is a masterful book in language alone. But if that is not enough for you, The Liar is also an exciting and maze-like blend of international intrigue, murder, teenage male prostitution and the coming of age of a pathological liar of the first degree. Or is it? You're never really sure which way's up in this book until Fry brings things to a last-minute wrap-up that would be the envy of even the most devious mystery writer. Is the Liar funny? Yes, but in a wholly different way than The Hippopotamus. Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Follow the life story of Adrian Healey, from prep-school dandy to college ghost-writer, London catamite to international spy, and the result leaves nothing else to be desired from one of Britain's most genius comedians. Laced with its delicious undertones of intrigue, homosexuality, intelligentsia, and of course compulsive confabulatings, 'The Liar' does for the reputation of the English education system what Bonnie and Clyde did for that of armed robbery: prose and poetry are eloquent and titillating; the reader is drawn into the stony facades of English schools with many a manic guffaw.
The plot is simple enough to begin with: Adrian loves Hugo, and would do anything for (and to) him. Adrian circulates a lurid underground magazine and scandalizes his school. Adrian is expelled. From here onwards the plot thickens, as does the reader's bewilderment and enjoyment; the only real voice of recount is that of Adrian's - and he is a compulsive liar. Is he telling the truth? was he arrested for possession of cocaine whilst prostituting himself in the West End?
Despite (or perhaps because of) his failings, Adrian continues his studies at Fry's very own Alma Mater - Cambridge - and is promptly reduced to plagiarizing his theses, forging teachers' signatures, and counterfeiting Dickensian plays. It comes as little surprise, then, that there is great demand for his flawless lying and total lack of scruples in the big world of espionage, although here the novel fragments somewhat and forces the reader to return to previously unexplained asides. Suffice it to say that Adrian begins to find himself completely outclassed by the ruthless, seamless professional liars of the world's top secret services...

Stephen Fry writes jaunty, superbly clever and often belly-achingly funny prose. Much of it can be called irreverent, but only by the irredeemably Puritan. Lesen Sie weiter...
