Pressestimmen

It brings us all the satisfactions of crime thriller and mystery...The beauty lies in the loveable and wholly believable character of Ree Guardian A suspicion grows that you are reading the sort of book D.B.C Pierre's Vernon God Little might have been, had it been five times as keenly observed and deeply felt The Times 'Woodrell is a marvellous writer' Roddy Doyle 'Woodrell throws down sentences that will leave you amazed.' Charles Frazier 'Reading this will make you feel that you walk on very, very thin ice, and know that chaos is very, very close. Such knowledge has many consequences, one of them is exhilaration.' Niall Griffiths, Observer 'Brutal, violent and completely gripping' Independent on Sunday

Synopsis

Amid the harsh landscape of the Ozark Hills, sixteen-year-old Ree is taking care of her mother and two brothers. Her father has put their house up as bail and if he doesn't show up at court it'll be sold from under them. To save her family she needs to track him down but in a community riven with long-running feuds getting answers isn't easy.

Eigentlich habe ich bei diesem Buch ja nur wegen dem Cover zugegriffen - jetzt bin ich aber froh, dass ich es getan habe. Manch ein Kunde weiß vielleicht, dass "Winter's Bone" im Jahre 2010 mit Jennifer Lawrence in der Hauptrolle verfilmt wurde. Film und Buch sind sich ziemlich ähnlich; ob man sich jetzt lieber den Film anschaut oder das Buch liest, hängt ganz vom Geschmack ab. Die Geschichte wurde in diesem Fall nicht für den Film geändert.

Zum Inhalt:
Ree Dolly ist erst 16 und der alleinige Versorger ihrer Familie. Ihr Vater ist verschwunden und ihre Mutter leidet unter Depressionen. Eines Tages steht auch noch ein Fremder vor ihrer Haustür. Rees Vater ist nicht wie versprochen beim Gericht erschienen und er hat das Haus, das Ree und ihre Familie bewohnt, als Pfand eingesetzt. Um ihr Dach über dem Kopf nicht zu verlieren, macht sich Ree auf die Suche nach ihrem Vater und stößt dabei bis an ihre Grenzen - körperlich und seelisch.
"Winter's Bone" ist eine dramatische, realistische Geschichte, die irgendwo in den Bergen von Missouri angesiedelt ist. Als Leser sieht man sich mit dem Alltag in den Bergen konfrontiert, liest von Armut und Elend, von Bürgern, die sich nur mittels Drogenverkauf über Wasser halten können. Ree versucht ihre Familie vorm Verhungern zu bewahren; gemeinsam mit ihren Brüdern erschießt sie Eichhörnchen, in besseren Zeiten einen Hasen. Die Kälte in den Bergen hat die Menschen rau und hart werden lassen. Wer seinen Rücken nicht bewacht, muss sich nicht wundern, wenn er ein Messer darin vorfindet. Jeder will überleben.

Obwohl das Buch nur an die 200 Seiten hat, kommt nichts zu kurz. Woodrell hat einen eigensinnigen, aber angenehmen Schreibstil.

Das ist das andere Amerika, das vergessene Amerika. Gegenden, in denen hinter jeder Haustür eine Knarre steht, die Kinder eher unregelmäßig beschult werden und sich die Polizei kaum darum kümmert, wenn einer "verschwindet", weil sowieso wieder Drogen dahinter stehen.
Teilweise sind die Dialoge im Missouri-Dialekt geschrieben, Konzentration des Lesers ist vonnöten. Ich hielt manchmal inne, um mir klar zu machen, dass dieser Roman im 21. Jahrhundert spielt. Der Autor muss es wissen. Er ist in den Ozarks geboren, aufgewachsen und lebt wieder dort.

Cult novelist Daniel Woodrell, himself born in the Ozarks in southern Missouri, coined the term ``country noir`` to describe his work and this hell where he was born. He strictly adheres to the rules of the noir-novel, perfectioning his technique by arranging each chapter like a short story, short, abrupt openings, quick conclusions, and never romanticizing or aestheticizing his ``White Trash`` underdogs.
Every reader will have his very special, individualistic fondness for a book, its characters, plot, setting, associations. To me, the associations came swiftly, hauntingly, first with the elegiac music and lyrics of ``Me and Bobby McGee`` with Janis Joplin’s raspy delivery ``Freedom’s just another word for nothin‘ left to lose. Nothin‘ it ain’t nothin‘ honey, if it ain’t free.`` Then, by and by and again and again, Mattie Ross in ``True Grit`` , counter part of Ree, so to say, in the novel well as in the films; young girls in search of true grit ``who discover it, among other places,`` in themselves...

I love this book and have read it three times. It transports me to the Ozarks every time, into the freezing cold and Ree's desperate hunt for her father. The characters she seeks out are incredibly real and mostly ominous, if not downright frightening, her little brothers and Gail keep her on track. The search ends satisfactorily, but nonetheless in a scene which is unforgetably horrific. I can still hear the shriek of the chainsaw.

HASH(0xa668ee4c) von 5 Sternen Great writing; depressing subject 30. August 2006
Von Mary Reinert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Woodrell has definitely captured what it is like to live in a subculture that is so isolated from the bigger world around it. The Ozark area is such a paradox of beautiful lodges and resorts and, on the other hand, pockets of isolated, poverty-stricken rural poor. Woodrell's portrayal of the Dolly clan is, unfortunately, not unbelievable.

Ree's search for her father who has skipped his bail reflects a parallel search for a better life; she doesn't know where to look for him and her only idea of a better life for herself is to join the Army. The effects that meth have had on the rural poor is devastating. That together with generations of family hardships, feuds, intermarriage, and poverty paints a pretty depressing picture.

I live in Missouri and have just now discovered Woodrell. He calls his writing "Country Noir" which is truly an apt description. This isn't a pretty book, but it is an honest one and one that I would highly recommend for those looking to meet characters not found in most other writing.

HASH(0xa64be2d0) von 5 Sternen a winner, but still champion 18. August 2006
Von Starved for It - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Twenty years ago Jewel Cobb dragged a comb through his greasy, antique pompadour and in that brilliant moment Daniel Woodrell announced his intention to entertain a readership. Predictably Mr. Cobb did not survive that novel, Mr. Woodrell has gone on to publish eight of them and become a leading contender for the title of Most Underappreciated Writer in America (campaigning in the heavyweight division).

It may be that the very voices decrying Woodrell's lack of popular acceptance are at least partly responsible for it. The laudatory reviews, and they are finally numerous, tend toward the use of adjectives like 'dark,' and 'bleak,' and, 'lyrical,' and these suggest literary heavy sledding, reading reminiscent of a high school English assignment. It must be conceded that Woodrell is a serious writer, a purveyor of social outrage and dismay at the human condition, but not a page of his work passes without something to laugh at, cringe from, fret over--in other words the vicarious experience that is the stuff of ENTERTAINMENT.

In 'Winter's Bone' Woodrell continues to make good on his old promise. Though 'Bone' is not as consistently funny as some of his previous books it is a glistening showcase of an ever maturing and deepening compassion. America has no patience for her poor and feels it is in the poorest taste when the underclass is anything but invisible. Classism remains our most pervasive and acceptable prejudice. It is into the teeth of this nasty attitude that Woodrell flings the wonderful, large humanity of his people. Ree Dolly is the latest and most finely drawn of these Woodrellian characters. To read 'Winter's Bone' is to be instructed and ennobled, but really Woodrell means no harm by it. His trick, his art, is to make the hard lesson savory.

HASH(0xa66b6bdc) von 5 Sternen The best unknown writer 4. Februar 2007
Von David Beck - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Why Daniel Woodrell is not a household name says much about literacy in America. Having read most of his books, I can't help thinking, Why don't more people know him? Why don't bookstores carry his novels? Why doesn't someone turn this book into a movie?

Anyway, Winter Bones is one of his best. It is a novel about a young girl who is on a journey of discovery, a discovery not just about her meth lab cooker dad but about herself. It is a picaresque novel, much like Portis's True Grit. She finds "justice" at a cost, but her determination and heart, to keep her family from homelessness, makes her one of America's most down-on-her-luck, inspirational characters in contemporary lit.

Woodrell fills his novels with great descriptions and dialogue. He creates characters whom you wouldn't want necessarily to meet, but are still intriguing, sympathetic and compelling.

Great book! Great author! Read Winter Bones and all of Woodrell's books. Maybe the word will get out, so that authors like Woodrell will be more well-known and praised like a lot of less-worthy authors.

HASH(0xa64becd8) von 5 Sternen Rich, gorgeous, alive language 10. Januar 2007
Von D. Munro - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Daniel Woodrell has a way with words, and if you're a fan of his work it's the language that seduces you. His plots are earthy, celebrate the lives of those whose values are bent by the fires of hard luck. He has the magic of voice in earlier novels, speaking in the first person, giving his characters an innocent honesty combined with intelligence and ignorance in just the right tragic mix.
Winter's bone starts at a slower pace than his other books. Sixteen year old Ree Dolly, of the infamous no-good Dollys, a poor and violent outlaw clan, is the center of the story, and it's told from the third person. At first you wonder if Woodrell can get this thing rolling, but before you know it the vernacular has crept in and the situation and the girl are compelling, you've got to find out what happens. It gets pretty grisly, in a satisfying way. I mean to say it gets rough, more or less true to life rough, though spiffed up for dramatic effect.
There are so many good lines in this book you could genuinely call it a great poem, in the same club with Ted Hughs's "Crow". What makes the language so great is what Woodrell is so good at, mixing the vernacular with high language, with close observation, with humor and surprising but apt connections, with music in the sounds and light and shadow in the images, with affection for all of creation, no matter how low.
Winter's Bone has you shivering in the heavy snow with Ree in her grandma's coat and bare legs, trying to keep the family together, give her little brothers a chance for a better life.
To my mind, this is great art, though I will say I think Woodrell's plots are mainly scaffolds to hang the words and characters on. I am rarely satisfied by his plots, but I don't think the plots are what's important in Woodrell's work. He butts you up against life's essence so close you can smell skin and feel heat.

HASH(0xa64cd4b0) von 5 Sternen Intense 23. September 2010
Von Fable - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The former English major in me recognized that this novel is beautifully written, with an evocative setting in the rural Ozarks. The characters are well-developed, especially the strong female protagonist, 16-year-old Ree, and the protagonist's quest carries the plot along well. However, the "other" me, the woman who doesn't watch the news because it is too disturbing, avoids intense and violent books, and tends to prefer comedy and musical films (can you say escapist?) found this novel very difficult going indeed. It was relentlessly depressing--crank cooker dad who is out of the picture, insane mom, teen left with the care of two younger siblings, beating, rape--it just goes on and on. The last chapter is unbelievably grisly. But if you are a reader who likes gritty realism, look back at all the "English major" reasons why you might choose Winter's Bone.
