5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the greatest in my mind.
The magic of this story never fails to delight me. Steinbeck doesn't run along to long of a plotline, yet still fills a book with beauty. It's the place that is the magic here, with the scenery taking the role of a character all its own. The mastery is revelaed when you realize that you're soaking in the beauty of what is normally considered ugly: docks and a...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Just a LITTLE Favor
This book was so and so. One aspect of the book that I enjoyed was that the way Steinbach described evetything so vividly in detail. No detail escaped with out being mentioned. Overall the book was about a small place on the coast and the people that where living there. It first went into developing the characters and then gets into the main character, Doc. Doc is...

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the greatest in my mind., 30. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cannery Row (Taschenbuch)
The magic of this story never fails to delight me. Steinbeck doesn't run along to long of a plotline, yet still fills a book with beauty. It's the place that is the magic here, with the scenery taking the role of a character all its own. The mastery is revelaed when you realize that you're soaking in the beauty of what is normally considered ugly: docks and a cannery, the decaying part of a town, the homeless camps... But it all seems like the greatest pllace on earth. Steinbeck makes it seem like it's not where you are, but how you look at it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Steinbeck sollte man häufiger lesen, 16. Januar 2010
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cannery Row (Penguin Modern Classics) (Taschenbuch)
Sofern man über gute Englischkenntnisse verfügt, ist dieser amerikanische "Klassiker" unbedingt lesenswert, auch wenn man manche
vom Englischen abweichende Ausdrücke nicht kennt oder nicht im Lexikon findet. Die Mischung aus dem harten Leben zu Zeiten der großen Sardinenströme in Kalifornien mit seinenn schrägen und schrulligen Typen und der fast liebevollen Beschreibung teilweise skurriler
Begebenheiten und Mileus liest man mit größerem Interesse als manchen konstruierten Krimilangweiler.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Cannery Row, 13. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cannery Row (Taschenbuch)
Cannery Row is an over all good book and great for LA. projects. The title may make you wonder, but Cannery Row is a place in Monterey California where pimps, whores, and basically everybody lives. Lying among it is a sardine cannery, a grocery store, vacant lot, and a few buildings. John Steinbeck is an excellent author and you'll probably be interested how he describes the lives of those who inhabit Cannery Row. The way he describes it, Cannery Row is all squeezed into the book. The way he changes the scenes for every chapter won't let you be get bored. Read this, it'll help you accept and appreciate life as it is.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fatalism as Philosophy, 20. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cannery Row (Taschenbuch)
Cannery Row is much more than the short comic sentimental telling of a year in the life of a marginalized community that exists on such scraps as an industrialized society throws its way. It is also a sustained and almost completely successful protrayal of philosophic fatalism in action. Those who struggle to the top are wasting their lives while those who literally dance to Nature's rhythms can find a sense of joy in being completed. Sometimes that completion is available through death, sometimes through accepting one's lot in life, and sometimes there is an opportunity for a great party...but not if you try too hard to plan any of this.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Captivating tale of mystery and grace, 22. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cannery Row (Taschenbuch)
Novel by John Steinbeck, published in 1945. Like most of Steinbeck's postwar work, Cannery Row is sentimental in tone while retaining the author's characteristic social criticism. Peopled by stereotypical good-natured bums and warm-hearted prostitutes living on the fringes of Monterey, Calif., the picaresque novel celebrates lowlifes who are poor but happy. Synopsis Adventures of cannery workers living in the run-down waterfront section of Monterey, California.
Synopsis Drawing characters based on his memories of real inhabitants of Monterey, Steinbeck interweaves the stories of Doc, Henri, Mack, and his boys, in a world where only the fittest survive, in a novel that focuses on the acceptance of life as it is--a story at once humorous and poignant. --This text refers to the paperback edition of this title
Synopsis Cannery Row focuses on the acceptance of life as is--both the exuberance of community and the loneliness of the individual. Creating characters based on his memories of real inhabitants of Monterey, California, Steinbeck interweaves the stories of Doc, Henri, Mack, and the boys in a world where only the fittest survive. 2 cassettes. --This text refers to the audio cassette edition of this titl

5.0 von 5 Sternen Steinbeck at his best, 21. März 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Cannery Row is one of the most amazing literary achievements of all time. Steinbeck's words paint such a vivid picture of the people and places surrounding a vacant lot in Monterey that you will almost smell the fish rotting on the beach and hear the music coming from the lobby of the Bear Flag Hotel. The people of Cannery Row don't do much all day, and they never really achieve anything, but Steinbeck portrays them so magically that by the end of the story they have become archetypal heroes of greatness, honor, and beauty. This is the book that convinced me that I had to read everything ever written by John Steinbeck.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Steinbeck once again explores the life of the common man, 30. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cannery Row (Taschenbuch)
Like many of his other books Cannery Row is full of colorful characters that shape the novel and capture the reader's attention. I could not help but feel piy for Mack and the boys at their attempt to be good men, but at there continuous mistakes and lapses into the vices of booze, women, and more booze. Doc too was quite interesting being the only educated man in town who tried to help the others and displayed incredible patience in putting up with the townspeople. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and Steinbeck's dry sense of humor.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Steinbeck classic, 16. Juli 2000
Von 
D. Roberts "Hadrian12" (Battle Creek, Michigan United States) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cannery Row (Taschenbuch)
The only other Steinbeck book I have read was "Of Mice And Men." Although I liked it, I much preferred the much less well-known "Cannery Row."
One thing I like about Steinbeck is that his novels are straightforward. There is none of the stream-of-consciousness experiments or literary time warps & wormholes that you will find in so many other 20th century writers (such as William Faulkner and Hermann Broch). While he is perhaps not in the same league as Earnest Hemingway in writing this style, he is none-theless a very talented author.
"Cannery Row" is about a blue-collar community of people who lead simple lives. However, as Dr. Keating says in "Dead Poets Society," simple does not and need not necessarily = oridinary. I found myself falling in love with many of the characters, with their aww-shucks mentality & sleepy-eyed approach to life.
One thing which differentiates this novels from most other 20th century works is that it is actually, for the most part, an upbeat story. It lacks the morose undertones of the majority of novels written in the past 100-150 years. It is a book about the risks of trying to fulfill one's dreams...and the heartaches and pleasures that this crazy life has to offer. A wonderful book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful, 30. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cannery Row (Taschenbuch)
Cannery Row is like a painting. Created with a careful hand and wise heart, it is a simple portrait about a very eccentric and eclectic community that lives by the sea. The characters are foolish and their lives often are ridiculous but there is a familiarity. These are people that we know. These are sensibilities and personal virtues that we understand and share. They are us on our worst days and our best. If we had the chance to observe our lives from a far off place, we may see a story that unfolds like this book. Written in a style that is both lyrical in its efficiency and beautiful in simplicity, it is an easily accesible work that can be appreciated by everyone. This book does lack the gravity of other Steinbeck novels. Often presenting the plight of man immersed in modern society, drowning in the consequences of modern ideology, Steinbeck takes a softer, more humorous approach in this portrail of the human spirit. This book reads more like poetry about the daily rhythms of everyday life. This book is not going to rock nations, shatter governments, or upsurpt the foundation of any belief system that you adhere to but it will leave you with a private smile and a warm feeling for a small seaside community that exists somewhere at sometime.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good follow-up to Tortilla Flat, 16. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cannery Row (Taschenbuch)
John Steinbeck created a novel that shows not only wit and literary aptitude, but also illuminates some of the gray areas of human nature. He does this with a humor and poignancy that endears the reader. Particularly fantastic is his use of narrative, and in that narrative, a patois with a life of its own. He includes in Cannery Row a number of allegorical stories and vignettes with varying degrees of lucidity. Chapter 2, for example, makes a few excellent, though not altogether original, points about society, but is altogether disparate with the greater body of this work. Chapter 31, in contrast, is a simple, detailed and lucid allegory that fits within the frame of the book. Aside from a few minor tangents, the book is fantastic. The characters, like those of Tortilla Flat, are wildly absurd and hilarious. Chapter 17 is one of the funniest chapters I have read in years. The stories that Steinbeck tells are rich and unpredictable in detail and plot. Tortilla Flat may have been a little better, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading Cannery Row. Bottom line: Read it.
