2.0 von 5 Sternen a promising book that does not deliver
I am new to this author's work. The concerns he raises and the anthropological examples he uses were new to me three decades ago. The story he uses as a gimmick to present his arguments is so flat as to be a distraction. The main character is infuriating in his thickness--especially since he is supposed to have a doctorate! Of course he is using the main character as...

5.0 von 5 Sternen my ever fav Quinn, 15. Februar 2006
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Story of B (Taschenbuch)
TSOB gehört neben den beiden "Ismael" und "Ismaels Geheimnis" (original: "Ishmael" und "My Ishmael") zu der sogenannten Ishmael-Triologie. Leider wurde dieses Buch hier, der zweite Teil nie ins Deutsche übersetzt. Wer aber offen für die englische Sprache ist und gerne mehr über Daniel Quinns Gedankengänge erfahren will, wird sicher seinen Spaß an diesem Buch haben.
Allerdings sollten Leser von "Ismael" und/oder "Ismaels Geheimnis" wissen, dass TSOB ein völlig anderer Stil ist. Zwar gibt es dort auch eine Art Lehrer wie in den anderen beiden den Gorilla Ismael und es gibt auch hier viele Gespräche, die für uns alle wichtig sind. Aber was TSOB von den anderen beiden unterscheidet ist, dass es eine solide, mitreißende Handlung hat und das von vorne bis hinten. Das ist, was mancher bei den anderen beiden Ismael-Büchern möglicherweise vermisst (ich jedenfalls zum Teil). Der Priester Jared Osborne (aus dessen Sicht alles erzählt wird) erzählt so spannend und gut, dass man fast glauben mag, die Geschichte wäre wahr. Aber selbst wenn sie es nicht ist, was dahinter steckt geht jeden von uns etwas an und IST wahr.
Manches relevantes, was da besprochen wird, fließt als "secret teachings" unmittelbar in die Geschichte mit ein. Die sogenannten "public teachings", die Reden, die B hält, sind an die Geschichte angehängt. Das ist etwas, was das Buch besonders macht. Der Leser kann selbst entscheiden, ob er die Reden gleich liest, wie sie kommen, oder erst das Buch zu Ende bringt und dann alle Reden durch liest.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The nail in the coffin..., 26. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Story of B (Taschenbuch)
So you read Ishmael and you thought it was amazing. Then you read My Ishmael and everything started to clear up a bit... you sort of began to understand what it was DQ was talking about. Then you read Beyond Civilization and you were like, "That's it...I've got all I need!" Before you start thinking you know what's going on, read The Story of B. For in this book is where it all is. It is truly the 'nail in the coffin'. I sometimes think you could do away with all the others and still get it with The Story of B. But I challenge you, the reader, to do this. Read Ishmael, read My Ishamael, read Beyond Civilization and then hammer that nail in the coffin with The Story of B.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent companion to Ishmael, 27. April 2000
Von 
Marceau Ratard (Metairie, LA USA) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Story of B (Taschenbuch)
You should read Ishmael first, and then read the Story of B. It builds nicely on the basic concepts presented in Ishmael. There is a bit more of a story and the book's layout is strange. There is a section in the back that has the public teachings of B. This is kind of cool because you can skip the story and just read the sort of lectures. You end up jumping back and forth if you want to read everything in sequence. The Book is excellent. It makes some good points and goes further than Ishmael did. It really is one of those life changing books. It challenges you to think about the modern world. It does a good job of showing that the stock market and SUVs won't help to stop humanity from destroying itself. It does a good job of showing how relgion has aided in the degredation of the earth. There is also a very cool interpritation of the nature of the anti-christ in the book. Somebody with more religious convictions than I would probabally find this book more troubling, but I would recommend it to anybody. Read Ishmael and then read the Story of B. You may hate it (probabally not), but it will make you use your brain.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ripping down the curtain..., 7. März 2000
Von 
Alyssa Tuininga (New Hampshire) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Story of B (Taschenbuch)
The Story of B was by far the best and most difficult of Quinn's works for me. Ishmael and My Ishmael helped me to see the curtain that has been pulled over my eyes and the Story of B has ripped that curtian down. For those that say Ishmael and My Ishmael were too simplistic and "duh" (to quote a fellow reviewer)-- please try The Story of B. For me personally I am not sure I would have been able to get through B without the first 2. Growing up drenched in the culture of this society and hearing constantly not to question took a while to break down (that is what Ishmael and My Ishmael did for me). Above all I would say that read the book- you have nothing to loose, except humanity!

5.0 von 5 Sternen ELEGANT AND AWE INSPIRING, 12. November 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Story of B (Taschenbuch)
What can I say about a book that single handedly renders every major world religion impotent, then explains the root of every major societal ill all in three hundred pages. Quinn maps out incredibly simple and credible hypotheses about the origins of human intelligence, language and religion that hinge on some simple assumptions and evolutionary theory. The author also outlines how, when and where western culture developed its catastrophic method of "subduing" the earth and its inhabitants. I am the last person to fatuously subscribe to far flung theories that might prove impossible to verify. But Quinn's vast general knowledge coupled with his mastery of scientific reasoning and inductive logic are a nearly incorruptible combination. This book can change your worldview if you leave your mind open and put some thought into it.
The only problem I have with "B" is Quinn's lack of facility with narrative and developing characters. The main chracter is infuriatingly obtuse and by implication, the reader too is supposed to be equally comfounded by Quinn's message. At times the tone of condescension is almost unbearable. Quinn should abandon the use of the novel as a teaching method and present his ideas in a nonfictional context.
Overall, though, I would implore the reader to plow through some of the plot points and absorb the information contained therein. It is revolutionary in its implications and overwhelmingly enjoyable.

2.0 von 5 Sternen a promising book that does not deliver, 27. Juli 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Story of B (Taschenbuch)
I am new to this author's work. The concerns he raises and the anthropological examples he uses were new to me three decades ago. The story he uses as a gimmick to present his arguments is so flat as to be a distraction. The main character is infuriating in his thickness--especially since he is supposed to have a doctorate! Of course he is using the main character as a strawman for his ecological argument but he is so dumb that he is a destraction. He also makes assumptions about Catholic theology that are shallow, further reducing the credibility of the main character.
He offers animism as a healthier worldview than our present agricultural based worldview. Now I have a great respect for the animistic worldview, as I have seen aspects of it up close among non-Western people. He hinted at some of the beauty of this worldview but really didn't do it much justice--for a book that is supposed to be proposing it as the alternative to the existing Western vision. N! either does he explain why so many non-western people turn away from that vision today in the face of Western technology and goodies.
The frustration is that I agree with many of the points he is trying to make but he just doesn't follow through on his thoughts with any depth. He seems to be "angelizing" animism as a world vision. Yet, he doesn't seen to grasp that vision at a level that is lived. He doesn't convey well the vision he is promoting.

5.0 von 5 Sternen wow, 6. Juli 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Story of B (Taschenbuch)
this book revolutionized my thought process completely. if you read "kirkus" review, don't listen to it, becuase in the book it very clearly explains (the main character is an absolute dunce, so everything is explained over suficiently)that the anti-christ will not be at all like what we imagine the anti-christ to be (casting spells, world domination etc.), becuase if he was then people wouldn't listen to him (most people are more intelligent than religious leaders of yore who taught this anti-christ thought them to be)and he(she) wouldn't be an affective anti-christ. don't read it if you are looking for action or thick, involved plot. the book is more teachings than story, but the story is exciting too. anyway READ IT, we need to have these ideas become a pop-culture phenomenon.

5.0 von 5 Sternen thought provoking, must read, 10. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Story of B (Taschenbuch)
A philosophical journey that every person should take. Those who would criticize his methods are missing the fundamental point of Quinn's teachings. The story of a catholic priest, who by his own admission has somewhat nominal beliefs, is sent to investigate a potential "Antichrist". This candidate is not preaching what one would expect of the Antichrist. B, as he is known, attempts to show his listeners that our culture is destroying the world in which we live. The story provides a fascinating vehicle for Quinn . The basis of his arguments is compelling. I would put it to anyone to read this book and not have their beliefs affected.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very good - once you have read Ishmael, 20. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Story of B (Taschenbuch)
The Story of B really hammered home the ideas first presented in Quinn's Ishmael. Quinn himself comments on how religion is "taught" on a weekly basis, the ideas constantly being thrown at the worshipper. Along the same lines, this book takes Ishmael's concepts and reinforces them through an interesting plot. Not as good as the first, but still worth it.
