Kurzbeschreibung

29. September 1992 Vintage International
In his uproarious first novel Martin Amis, author of the bestselling London Fields, gave us one of the most noxiously believable -- and curiously touching -- adolescents ever to sniffle and lust his way through the pages of contemporary fiction. On the brink of twenty, Charles High-way preps desultorily for Oxford, cheerfully loathes his father, and meticulously plots the seduction of a girl named Rachel -- a girl who sorely tests the mettle of his cynicism when he finds himself falling in love with her.

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."

4.0 von 5 Sternen Leave Martin alone! 16. Oktober 1999
Von S. Maruta
Format:Taschenbuch
THe Rachel Papers is a very good first novel by a talented if controversial author, if you wish to read it you will no doubt find it entertaining. BUt I just wonder why Amazon should let reviews (or rather pseudo-reviews) like the 'Martins Line' that I just read, obvu\iously by someone who hasn't read the book and has no comment to make about it, but just a vendetta to carry out on its author, enjoy Amis's books, he's written quite afew and on the whole they're pretty good, just as his father's.

4.0 von 5 Sternen BUTTERFLY 16. Juli 2000
Von Daniel S.
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.

Von stewart
Format:Taschenbuch
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen British Holden Caulfield 4. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
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!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good first novel, standard relationship pathology. 23. November 1999
Von EMK
Format:Taschenbuch
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.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not his best 18. November 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
I like Martin Amis' writing a whole hell of a lot, but if you're not familiar with his work, I couldn't recommend this one to you. Start with Success or Money or London Fields instead of with his first book. This story is a very well-crafted cynical portrait of being a young man in all its lack of glory, but I feel like it's missing the depth his later work has to offer.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful book 18. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
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.
