Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

Amis's vision of adolescence is an unvarnished, terrifying and hilarious one."-- New Yorker

"A truly sexy and funny book...a delight...the best teenage sex novel since Goodbye Columbus." -- New York

"Amis is a born comic novelist, in the tradition that ranges from Dickens to Waugh...He can find laughter in catastrophe and knows that morality shifts sneakily between absolutes and ambiguity...Amis's mercurial style...can rise to Joycean brilliance."

Werbetext

Von Daniel S. am 16. Juli 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
Let's return with Martin Amis's RACHEL'S PAPERS to the early 70's. The sex revolution is over, drugs are part of everyday life and " no taboo " is the motto. Charles Highway, the hero of RACHEL'S PAPERS, is a child of the sixties who desperately needs something to believe in. His father cannot give him lessons of ethics and his mother is more interested in social activities than in the education of Charles.
Furthermore, girls cannot sustain the romantic standards hundreds of writers have described in thousand of books. Just read the chapter dedicated to Rachel's underwear and you will understand Charles Highway's trauma.
In order to give a sense to his life, Charles has to get rid of the past. Let's observe the numerous pages containing descriptions of the butterfly's birth : diarrhea, gonorrhea and expectorations mark Charles's journey to adulthood.
This powerful first novel of Martin Amis has the flavour of dead flowers and is an interesting documental book about this period, childhood or the 70's, that has marked a great number among us.
A book for my generation.

Martin Amis went to Exeter College, Oxford and lived before that with his father in a village in Oxfordshire. Sound familiar, of course it's just like the plot in the book!. Martin Amis' first novel shows hints of true genius. The characterisation of the books sort-of-hero, Charles Highway is fascinating, and he dissects the typical foibles of an adolescent with skill and integrity. Other high points include the amazing vocabulary that the book is written with. The outstanding prose makes me (excuse me) laugh out loud every time I read it and almost makes up for some of the unconvincing aspects of the plot. Autobiographical? Yes. Self-Obsessed? Yes. Extremely funny? Definately. Worth Buying? Without a doubt. Some have said that to start reading Martin Amis, other books like Money or Success would be better. I disagree. The Rachel Papers is a brilliantly funny introduction to the writings of one of the strangest and most talented British Novelists.

I read the reviews of this book thinking that it would be a humorous story -- that's what the reviews said. It's not -- unless you consider what 19-year-old British guys think about is humorous. I don't find funny the things that Charles about. I found it interesting. He is preoccupied with himself, how smart he is, his father and sex. I didn't find that odd at all for someone like Charles. I thought the toughest part of reading this book was remembering not to pass judgment on Charles. Rather, I had to remember that he is a young British guy in the early 1970s. When I kept that in mind, I found the book instructive, rather than entertaining (entertaining in the tv show sense). The writing style is pretty straightforward. So if you enjoy reading for the writing technique, this isn't your book. The main character, though, is worth the effort.

Interesting - I would rate this as Martin Amis's best novel. I believe it really succeeds in getting into the head of a precocious 19 year old male's head, and re-reads of the book have cause my sympathies to shift from Rachel to Charles.
When one notes that he wrote it in 1973 or so, in his early twenties, it reaffirms ones faith in the ability of the young to write good well-worded fiction, something that the American brat-pack novelists have gone a long way to dispell. The story paces along well, and there is an interesting shift from the 'present' in the novel to the 'past', with the two rapidly converging at the end.
Overall, vulgar in someplaces, but always amusingly so.

Martin Amis has improved considerably; "The Rachel Papers" is nothing if not an in-depth examination of the pathology of a typical youth relationship. But, if you are going to do something as standard as this, do it well. Martin Amis is a wonderful writer; he has captured the arrogant frustration of a first genuine relationship almost perfectly. From the first dialog between the two protagonists in the kitchen to the frustrations resulting from Rachel's more naturally human characteristics, Amis has examined the modern place in love as accurately as, say, Philip Roth. Take a look at this one.

Von Ein Kunde am 4. Dezember 1999

OK, maybe Amis is a little full of himself. The Rachel Papers does get bogged down a bit as Amis seems to want to impress himself above all others. But, Amis displays a savage wit that eviscerates a stratum of British society. I've read a few of his other books and the guy is a true talent, which I regret to report since Amis probably lives for these reviews to feed his insecurity. Anyway, The Rachel Papers is like The Catcher in The Rye on steroids. Amis presents a latter day Holden Caulfield that actually gets to live out a few of his sexual fantasies. Overall, a great book!

I was given this book for Christmas last year from a friend, and previous to this, I had never even heard of Amis before. Being 19 years old at the time, it was great to read about somone who I sadly could really identify with mentally (not that this is a bad thing...). This is a highly enjoyable book, and Charles' endeavors to make himself look good to Rachel (knowing exactly what to say at the museum at what time days beforehand so as not to screw up, seeing what he will look like in the light at the time...) are just fun as hell to read about. Highly recommended.
