Kurzbeschreibung

2. Dezember 1999
It is a dream of electrifying eroticism and inexplicable violence, recounted by a young woman to her analyst, Sigmund Freud. It is a horrifying yet restrained narrative of the Holocaust. It is a searing vision of the wounds of our century and an attempt to heal them. Interweaving poetry and case history, fantasy and historical truth-telling, THE WHITE HOTEL is a modern classic of enduring emotional power that attempts nothing less than to reconcile the notion of individual destiny with that of historical fate. 'I quickly came to feel that I had found that book, that mythical book, that would explain us to ourselves' Leslie Epstein, New York Times

Pressestimmen

“A novel of blazing imaginative and intellectual force.”—Salman Rushdie 

“To describe this novel as spine-tingling in its indescribable poetic effect would be to trivialize its profoundly tragic theme. Say then that it is heart-stunning.”—The New York Times
 
“Astonishing . . . elegantly experimental yet quite warm . . . A forthright sensuality mixed with a fine historical feeling for the nightmare moments in modern history, a dreamlike fluidity and quickness.”—John Updike, The New Yorker
 
“A dazzler that lingers in the mind.”—People

5.0 von 5 Sternen haunting and beautiful 1. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
It is the story of a lovely, very neurotic Jewish girl named Lisa Erdman who goes into therapy with Freud himself because she suffers from a chronic psycho-somatic pain in her left breast and pelvis. He sort of cures her so she can go on to lead a more or less normal life before being killed by the Nazis in a lime pit. Thomas' goal in writing this book was to show that any individual human life, no matter how seemingly insignificant or inconsequential, is priceless. The first half of the book basically chronicles Freud's sessions with Lisa. She retells this recurring dream of hers in which she meets a man on a train going nowhere. They go together to a fluid, serene white hotel, where they make love every night and day, amidst a series of horrible accidents and tragedies that befall many of the other guests staying there. After revealing this dream, Lisa tells Freud about things she remembers from her childhood, and other events, tragic and mediocre, that shaped her life. Freud then interprets the dream, using the things she told him about her life. The result of this deciphering is a great self- revelation for Lisa, as she begins to understand her failed relationship with her father and why this resulted in her ruined marriage; she "learns" of the adulterous relationship between her mother and her uncle, knowledge she already had but had repressed for so long she practically forgot about it. These stresses in her life had caused her neurosis, and confronting these memories makes her pain disappear. Lesen Sie weiter... ›

5.0 von 5 Sternen book never forgotten 29. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I read this book when I was a teenager and has stuck in my mind since. It is very profound and in reading it again, now that I understand it a little better, warrants a space on my bookshelf with the rest of my favorites. Other reviews here have certainly captured the essence, very powerful, a must read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sheer poetry. 20. November 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
A porthole into the soul. A surreal vision of life; engulfing a journey into the tormented soul of a single woman along with a journey into the horrors of humanity at its darkest time as experienced by the same woman during the holocaust. It captures the essence of the human spirit and the unique experience of being alive. A must read.

Von Caz
Format:Taschenbuch
His greatest literary work to date has taken the most reprhensible crimes against humanity and conveyed them through a sexual psychosis background/dialogue. The disturbing brilliance of that provokes the reader to examine oneself individually, and to judge humanity corporately. This book is not for the light-hearted. It is profound and deeply intellectual while at the same time subtle and emotionally challenging. One cannot read this book and not have some kind of emotional reaction to it. Upon my first read-through (this is a book that takes several reads to fully absorb all the nuances and insights), I was disturbed by its presentation. On the second read-through, I was amazed by the artistry of the picture painted by the words written. This novel will have a forceful impact upon the reader. You will come away fully embracing the writing or standing in judgement of the writer. There are no inbetween views. This novel takes the story of a young woman as she lives life in the midst of the Holocaust, and conveys the depravaties, the dehumanizing activities, the destructions that were exerted against humanity. A unique combination of massive war crimes and psycholanalysis makes this a book near impossible to put down. If you want a true challenge in your reading, if you want to be provoked out of your personal comfort zone, if you want something to deeply ponder, then look no further than The White Hotel. You'll go to that place and not return the same individual.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Every possible emotion is challenged 28. März 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Giving this book a 10 as a rating is sort of like writing my own eulogy; it's something that upsets me but that I feel it's my duty to do. White Hotel is one of the most amazing novels I've ever read. It is a wonderful story, at times erotic, often surreal, unfortunately tragic, always captivating. When you start this novel, you are introduced to a slightly off-balanced Jewish opera singer and her strange and unexplainable neuroses. She chats with her therapist, a very amusing and true-to-life fictional Sigmund Freud. Time goes on, her life goes on, joys come and go, and the War starts in Germany... I didn't sleep for 4 days after reading this book, and if that isn't a recommendation for people strong of heart, I don't know what is

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book Changed ME 15. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I have read this book three times in the last three years, and have bought it for almost every friend I have. If there is one book you read in your life, read this book! Not only did it change my perspective on the value of human life, and the memories we create daily... but it changed ME in the most profound way. D.M. Thomas is a genius.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An astonishing work of poetry packaged as prose. 18. März 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Mr. Thomas is a poet, not a novelist, and has bent the latter art form to his will in this once in a lifetime combination of Freudianism and a personal view of the bestiality of Nazism and the Holocaust. Akin to great poetry, the imagery and presepctive of the central character of the White Hotel grows more powerful in a second and third reading. Thomas has, somehow, managed to bring the insanity and brutality of a terrible story to the reader with elegance and a style of pen that does not seem to fit the subject matter but makes the horror all the more compelling. This combination is not seen in other works of art and for that reason alone this is a book for the ages
