The Songlines von Bruce Chatwin
The Songlines von Bruce Chatwin
5.0 von 5 Sternen Philisophical Travelogue, 6. Dezember 1999
Bruce Chatwin's novel traces his search for a definition of human nature among the aboriginal people of Australia. Chatwin's basic tenet is that the human race has adopted a sedentary existence that destroys the creative process and fosters an agressiveness toward our fellow man. While his pitch is certainly difficult to accept, Chatwin writes beautifully and woven into the story are journal entries, observations and quotes Chatwin stumbled across all around the globe that stimulate an intense inner-dialogue. Ultimately, the book will appeal to people who love philosophical thought without the existentialist edge.

The Sound and the Fury (Vintage International) von William Faulkner
5.0 von 5 Sternen Don't Listen to Idiots, 6. Dezember 1999
As one of the most eminent authors of the 20th century, Faulkner blends time and thought into one entity with an ability that rivals Joyce and sets him apart throughout American fiction. The outcome is a masterpiece that is ultimately the tale of the fall of the Southern aristocracy. The novel is extremely difficult to grasp but I urge all who attempt the challenge to expect to spend a great deal of time to understand the true meaning of the text.
