Rezension bezieht sich auf: Vurt (Taschenbuch)
„Du kannst Ihr nicht helfen. Deine Schwester hat Curious Yellow genommen."
Mit der Erfindung von Fecundity 10 sind die genetischen Barrieren zwischen den Spezies gefallen. Ein buntes Gemisch von Hybridwesen vom Robohund bis zum Zombie hat Manchester ghettoweise unter sich aufgeteilt. Vurt-Federn sind die neue Droge: ein geniales Medium, auf dem sich Träume speichern und mitträumen lassen. Und alle bis auf die Bullen sind dem Vurt verfallen, einer immer realer werdenden Traumwelt, in der Dinge und Personen unwiederbringlich verschwinden. Scribble hat seine Schwester im Vurt verloren. Mit der Hilfe seiner abgefahrenen Freunde versucht er, sie zurückzuholen, doch das Vurt ist ein harter Gegner. Scribble hätte die Warnung der Game Cat ernstnehmen sollen: Seid vorsichtig. Seid sehr, sehr vorsichtig. Das Vurt ist nichts für die Schwachen!
Phantasie und Wortwitz, Thrillerdramaturgie, Straßenwissen und Lebensweisheit. Das Beste von Joyce, Tolkien, Phillip K. Dick und Robert Anton Wilson in einem Buch komprimiert. Wer das Vurt kennt, ist bereits süchtig. Und sollte sofort loszischen und sich je eine Ausgabe von „Pollen“, „Pixel Juice“ und „Nymphomation“ zulegen – die sind nämlich ähnlich geil. Möglichst im englischen Original zu konsumieren, die deutschen Surrogate sind (wenngleich gut übersetzt) nur ein fader Abgesang der gewaltigen Noonschen Sprachwelt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen excellent - a completely new set of ideas, 23. Juni 2001
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Vurt (Taschenbuch)
Vurt - virtual reality not outside / in cyberspace (there is not even a hint of "cyber" in the book) but inside: drug-induced experiences but the "dream" is manufactured, edited, interactive, industrialized just the same. Not since "Neuromancer" by W.Gibson so many years ago have I come across a book which had so many new ideas. It is almost like a sonata - playing with variations and mixtures of "pure" beings (e.g. shadowwoman, dogman, shadowvurt, ...) and emotions; there are dreams, fantasies, nightmares, suspense: the book has it all. great reading!

5.0 von 5 Sternen The most true-to-life science fiction ever, 5. August 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Vurt (Taschenbuch)
I am not the world's biggest science fiction fan, but Jeff Noon just may have converted me to his world. This book was just a little something I picked up to bide my time in the airport, and it quickly turned into something that rarely occurs in my life... a favorite book. Noon's portrayal of this bizarre world where feathers take you to alternate universes is not so far off from the truth, and the allegory of Vurt is so perfect in its expression and imagination that it's hard to escape the world of Vurt once you've put the book down. And you won't ever want to put it down. The characters are real and imaginary at the same time... reading into their lives is like falling in love with your fantasies. Read it now... it's cheaper than drugs and there's no come down. I promise.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A feather in your mouth:, 18. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Vurt (Taschenbuch)
Vurt, by Jeff Noon is one of the most creative books that I have read in the sf&f world. It seems almost like a combo of A Clockwork Orange (the way Jeff Noon invents words, deriving them from words already in existance; also the all night Vurt-You-Want is analagous to the Korova Milkbar), Neuromancer (the general style of writing, cyberpunk theme), and Alice's Adventure's in Wonderland (the sort of mysticism that surrounds the plot, how a child is chasing down something that seems trivial to others, how he encounters a strage and almost magical world, paralelling to reality), and finally of Tekwar (the theme deals with the solicitation of drugs that don't exist in the non fiction world, and the battling that goes along with them). The plotline is very simple when you strip it of detail, which is part of why it becomes such an intriguinging, such a simple plotline bears such a complex plot. I think that Jeff Noon did a commendable job on his first book, and look ! forward to reading more books by him.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A thoroughly satisfying read.., 28. März 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Vurt (Taschenbuch)
It always amazes me when an author can write a book about the future using a language of the future.. This book does just that.. Every chapter holds a some kind of new perspective described through some new verbiage.. The story begins with events that materialize in the brain as somewhat foriegn and hard to comprehend yet promoting a desire to keep reading just to see where you end up.. Very imaginative.. For those of you who are just a bit too conservative or unimaginative (like the poor whining soul below) I wouldn't recommend this book. For those of you who can't get enough of the fictionalized hyperrealistic cyber-culture that seems to be unfolding before us, I suggest you go get this book NOW..

5.0 von 5 Sternen First rate debut for Jeff Noon, 2. Februar 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Vurt (Taschenbuch)
Move over Virtual Reality - this is Vurt, a state of mind, an existence between reality and dreamland, solidly unreal, a way of life for the unpure, the ultimate combination of altered states and computer games. To enter Vurt requires a feather, the flights coloured: blue is pleasure, legal and safe; black is horror and/or love, illegal and dangerous; pink is for porno in all its forms; silver is for the makers of feathers, used as a tool; and yellow, no escape, play to the end or die.
Original is too insipid an adjective to describe Jeff Noon's first novel - seminal, promethean, the prototype of a new genre of science fiction. The style of writing is reminiscent of Gibson, clear, sharp, and immediate. Explicit, concrete and ultimately real images contrast with the confusion of the protagonist Scribbles, from whose perspective we search through the world and creatures of Vurt for his sister, Desdemona. He is assisted or obstructed by a mongrel caste of single-minded characters whose roles are determined by the nature of their involvement with Vurt.
The world depicted in the novel is disturbing, psychotic and insidious, and the overall impression is as psychedelic as the cover. A fractal read, addictive and highly recommended

(REAL NAME)   
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Vurt (Gebundene Ausgabe)
In a genre that is constantly begging accreditation, it is refreshing to read someone like Noon who obviously has a great handle on the uses of warped reality for teaching something about the world we live in. Noon's great gift for driving prose does not quite reach the emotional validity of Jonathan Lethem, but far surpasses the general meaningless trash-sci-fi that clutters up the bookstore shelves and makes it embarrassing to claim one's self as a sci-fi reader/writer. Vurt definitely belongs in the library of the Clockwork Orange lover. Reading it is a lot like entering a vurt -- a life-sized videogame that has no fatal holes -- it makes real life seem somewhat mundane once you finish. You end with the realization that, much like playing a well-made, involving game, the second time won't be as pleasurable (because it is so plot-driven), but not reading it anymore will leave you bereft of all those great, flashing, driving images. The worst part of a free fall is that nasty stop at the end.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the very few writers breaking new ground, 28. September 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Vurt (Taschenbuch)
A truly immense work of imagination. Set in a Manchester that the Legge bill clearly never reached. The human race has evolved into an admixture of weird beings - half Crustie, half Alsation - centred around a mythic Lost Domaine landscape reached via the ingestion of Vurt - totally feathered up. A fin de siecle Castaneda / Huxley hybrid of a novel that you will still be reading long after Mary Ann Hobbs has gone to bed. Daily Mail readers will find this book deeply offensive and frightenly subversive - Curious Yellow's favourite book of 1996. 'A blue feather had landed on the stomach of the The Thing From Outer Space. One of his tentacles reached out for it. His spiky fingers took a hold, and a hole opened up in his flesh, a greasy orifice. He turned the feather and then stroked it in, direct, to the hole. He started to change . I wasn't sure which feather he'd loaded, but from the way he was moving his feelers I guess he was swimming with the Thermo Fish.'

5.0 von 5 Sternen A mind-blowing book!, 17. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Vurt (Taschenbuch)
Personally I am not a regular science fiction reader -- I had heard good reviews about Noon's Automated Alice, and while on the prowl for it at a local library, I ran into Vurt instead. The story sucked me in right off the bat, and I finished it in three days. Noon creates another world entirely without having to bring about drastic changes between real-life Manchester and his of 1998. The differences are subtle, but enough to paint an entirely different portrait -- the characters and memorable and likeable, despite various unusual and often taboo quirks he gave them. I can't completely explain why I liked this book so much. Noon's voice for the narrator and lead character Scribble was one that the reader felt empathy for; the situations and feathers were painted with such detail that they were impossible not to picture. Best of all, when I was done, I thought about the book for days. A definate must read -- you have to read it to even brush getting the gist of it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen It's the Vurt-U-Want, 3. Januar 1996
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Vurt (Taschenbuch)
Vurt is a wild ride across the dreamscape of the mind. An
excellent first novel, that promises the reader both excitement
for this work and for future works by Mr. Noon.

The characters are fairly well developed, and the landscape
both visual and surreal. The storyline involves a futuristic
drug, a thing from outer space, a "gang" and a lost love.

The drug causes the usual societal problems, crime, sex,
violence, and lack of respect for police. But it also leads
the protaganist on a journey of learning, longing and
metaphysical discovery. Not bad for a brightly colored
feather and a bunch of Dog People, Robots, humans and various
combinations of those.

While I wouldn't want to call it, like the book jacket does,
the "Clockwork Orange of the '90's," it is a futuristic,
rampaging youth, thriller that performs well.

I look forward to reading more from Mr. Noon.
