3.0 von 5 Sternen Definitely 100 pages too long
Yes, it is a fascinating novel with brilliant characters, curious situations, and many thoughts worth to be thought. I enjoyed it, but I also did get tired of it ... At times, I wanted to know what it all leads up to and instead yet another 10 pages demonstrating how much Harry Mulish knows about German literature or Italian architecture.

This is a brilliant book. One of the most entertanining and intelligent books that I have read in a long, long time. The story begins with the meeting of of Max Delius and Onno Quist (which is a coincidence engineered by heaven) who become best friends and have some rather wonderful conversations about life, the universe and everything. Max then meets a girl caled Ada and from there the trouble starts but I won't ruin the story on you. This book will keep you thinking and pondering for long after you have read it. But why should I tell you that, buy it to-day. You won't be disappointed!

2.0 von 5 Sternen 100 pages too long, 23. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Discovery of Heaven (Taschenbuch)
This week a colleague informed me that her husband was having exactly the same problem with this book as I had experienced: about a hundred pages before the ending I completely lost interest. I didn't finish it, and I didn't feel sorry, neither for not finishing it, neither for reading until reaching the moment of laying it aside. Something similar happened to me reading Pirsigs "Lila". Cana book that you couldn't stomach to finish be a good book ? Other readers with this experience with Harry "mulles is vulles" Mulisch magna opera ?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very well-written and intensely intriguing. A must-read!, 28. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Discovery of Heaven (Taschenbuch)
The Discovery of Heaven is indeed one of the best works of fiction I have ever read, with an intricately fashioned plot, and characters that come to life, making you wish that you could share in the friendship that exists between Max Delius and Onno Quist. The story guides you on a quest throughout Europe, eventually leading you to one of the greatest treasures mankind will ever know. It presents scenarios that inspire love, hate, sorrow, joy, and a multitude of others that draw you in from page one! Being a theologian, it was difficult, if not angersome, to come to terms with several of the religious aspects of the novel, but that's what great literature does--it inspires emotion. This book exceeds that goal. After reading this novel--and I hope you do lest you miss out on one of the greatest masterpieces of the century--you will have found that The Discovery of Heaven is truly the discovery of a lifetime.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best novel I've read in a loooooong time..., 23. Juli 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Discovery of Heaven (Taschenbuch)
I consider myself to be quite the fan of philosophical novels. From Hesse to Camus to just about anything with a commentary on life or mankind, I tend to devour the content. But this book had me overwhelmed. The diversity of its focus, the wittiness of the dialogue, and the profundity of its observations had me hooked from the first page. Because I work a job that allows many hours of reading time, I polished this off in 3 days. I find myself pining for Ada and wishing to contribute my own observations to a conversation with Max and Onno. The sign of an exceptional book, to me, is a feeling of emptiness when you reach the last page. That emptiness is upon me now and I'm hoping it will be filled with another of Mr. Mulisch's novels.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Boring, tedious, pompous..., 27. Oktober 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Discovery of Heaven (Taschenbuch)
Terrible book, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Very pompous, chauvinistic, lenghty. The real plot is written in between a whole lot of crappy ideas that aren't developed. It could have been done in 250 pages at the most. Waste of time.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderful philosophical journey..., 30. Januar 2000
Von 
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Discovery of Heaven (Taschenbuch)
One of the best books I've read in many years!   Mulisch, a Dutchman, tells a fascinating, very European story about the convergence of the heavens to bring to life an unusual boy.   Conceived and raised collectively, his parents, Max, Onno, Ada, and Sophia (you must read to understand) are four of the more interesting personalities you'll find in any novel.  The novel is carefully divided into four parts (from the Beginning of the beginning to the End of the end) and is chock full of mystery and philosophical riddles.  Most important is the "mission" that this young man is destined to accomplish.  In a series of travels and impulses, the boy, in search of his father (to some extent) and something greater, seeks to find the realities to his architectural and spiritual visions in places like Rome and Jerusalem.  The Washington Post called this, "One of the most entertaining and profound philosophical novels ever written."  I highly recommend it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Divine Intelligence requires endurance..., 18. November 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Discovery of Heaven (Taschenbuch)
Mulisch's "The Discovery of Heaven" is a beautiful novel... takes a good while to read and absorb the overflowing imagery and mindblowing brushes with the Dutch intellectuals, but to be simply put, it is inspiring. Max Delius and Onno Quist: bosom buddies (as you will learn upon reading) = the definition of true friedship, or as one may call it, Camaraderie. The travel, theology, science and history contained... enlightening. I may still be overwhelmed by the technique and detail that Mulisch had used to create this masterpiece. For any who have picked this novel up and put it down, I would highly recommend capturing what you have once let slip through your fingers. For potential readers skimming through the Amazon, you will be all the wiser for reading "The Discovery of Heaven".
