4.0 von 5 Sternen Very impressive characters in an engaging story, 9. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Bleeding London (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I had severe reservations about buying this book. Although being disuaded by the photo of the author on the cover is not reason enough, the thought of another book wrapped up in romantic idealism about any city, let alone London, is enough to make anyone reconsider the purchase. Fortunately I was clearly destined to read it. As a Londoner I was desperate to find a reason to dislike this book, yet I could not. The characters are totally original, easy to relate to and incredibley funny. They would probably carry the weakest of story lines anyway, yet Nicholsons dark, paranoid and twisting story makes this a book even better I ever hoped, even the most cynical reader would totally love it. Personally I think that London is probably the greatest city in world, and this book does nothing to negate that. Only in London could the dangerous, brooding situations that arise seem so ridiculously hilarious. Even a Londoner looking for something a little bit different will love it - just don`t judge a book by the picture of the author.

4.0 von 5 Sternen London Calling, 9. Februar 2000

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Bleeding London (Taschenbuch)
This wonderful novel is ideally enjoyed while living in or visiting London, seeing as how the city is a central character in it. With his typical offbeat humor, Nicholson weaves together the lives and stories of three of its denizens. Stuart is the owner of a company that does walking tours of London; burned out, he has decided to walk every single street in London in a quest for fulfillment and meaning. Julie is a native Londoner, although half-Japanese and thus is constantly being forced to prove herself a native. She keeps detailed maps of the locations of all her sexual encounters, as well as those of her partners. Mick is a Sheffielder whose stripper girlfriend was gang-raped by six well-to-do Londoners. He's come down to the unfamiliar city he hates in order to mete out some revenge. Both these and the supporting cast are wonderfully drawn characters, their paths through London are a treat.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Throughly engrossing and entertaining, 14. November 1998

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Bleeding London (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I just finished an uncorrected proof of this book. I had a hard time putting it down. Mr. Nicholson's writing is very visual. The characters were so well written (even the minor ones) that I not only could picture them in my mind I felt that I have actually met a few of them in my lifetime. I could not say that the book was wickedly funny. But I did found myself reacting out loud on the subway. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves cities. This book doesn't only describe people's love and or hate of London but touches upon emotions felt by anyone who has spent some time if not all their lives in a large city. I have never heard of Geoff Nicholson before but look forward to running into (maybe seeking out) his work again.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Funny, sexy and highly entertaining., 15. Januar 2000

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Bleeding London (Taschenbuch)
I have never been to London nor am I interested in the city. However, I don't feel lost at all when reading this superb fiction. This isn't a book about London per se. It doesn't feel like a travel book at all. The stories could easily take place elsewhere in the world, New York, Los Angeles, Paris... I've read Footsucker by Nicholson which, by the way, is also a highly enjoyable book. Bleeding London, in comparison with Footsucker, is more complex and more involved. Three seemingly unrelated eccentric characters are manifesting their eccentricities in parallel, and sometimes their path are crossed. Nicholson is quite skillful in writing black comedies. If you're interested in his books, this is a good starting point.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Bleeding London (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I read this on my return from my first trip to London, so much of the geography meant something to me. The premise behind this book, assorted individuals taking on London on their own for their own reasons, is great. The switching between and intermingling of characters is well-done. There's some dark comedy here. Mick is quite a charcter, in both the literary and comedic sense. The ending was a shocker...who would've thought! If you find it, pick it up...Bleeding London is thoroughly entertaining.

Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Bleeding London (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Surprisingly meaty and captivating enough to engage this London fan...the character of Mick is exceptional and there are some very funny moments. Wouldn't have seen that ending coming either...yes, read it, all of you! Definately entertaining.
