4.0 von 5 Sternen A forgotten classic of Faulkner
It seems every modernist attempted to write a great work concerning the great war (except fitzgerald, who didnt get to go himself). Faulkner's attempt may be second only to Hemingway's "A Farwell to Arms." "A Fable" is classic, which won the pulitzer prize,has long been overlooked simply because it represents a change from Faulkner'susual subject...

2.0 von 5 Sternen A reader's defeat
As the past reviewer I did not arrive to the page with THE END printed on it, and I really hate to be unable to finish a book. Anecdote aside, I am aware that my review lacks proper grounds, but since there is so much to read and too little time, I strongly suggest you to look for other works of this author. During the first chapter I seems to be going great, the drama...

4.0 von 5 Sternen A forgotten classic of Faulkner, 24. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Fable (Vintage) (Taschenbuch)
It seems every modernist attempted to write a great work concerning the great war (except fitzgerald, who didnt get to go himself). Faulkner's attempt may be second only to Hemingway's "A Farwell to Arms." "A Fable" is classic, which won the pulitzer prize,has long been overlooked simply because it represents a change from Faulkner'susual subject matter. In reality though, it may be his second greatest work behind "the sound and the fury." THis work is a brillian anti-war novel that looks at wars affects both on soldiers and civilians, and even on religion. A must read for any fan of Faulkner or modernism.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A reader's defeat, 16. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Fable (Vintage) (Taschenbuch)
As the past reviewer I did not arrive to the page with THE END printed on it, and I really hate to be unable to finish a book. Anecdote aside, I am aware that my review lacks proper grounds, but since there is so much to read and too little time, I strongly suggest you to look for other works of this author. During the first chapter I seems to be going great, the drama was cleaver and catchy. But suddenly in the second chapter it just stops and all the events seem to be going nowhere. Besides the construction of the language is boring and confusing. It feels like the author worked in this novel for a while, then left it during some years locked in a closet and one fine day decided to complete it, but without being at ease doing so.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A Turgid, Pretentious Anti-War Allegory, 21. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Fable (Vintage) (Taschenbuch)
No wonder there is so little said about this award-winning Faulkner work. It is a chore to read. Only in a few passages does the reader have the sense that the writer can tell a good story. Worse than that, the characters are like Rorschak blots with the Christian mythology mixed in. Stick with Faulkner's southern writings for characters who remain in your memory and images that are profound.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Shockingly unengrossing., 20. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Fable (Vintage) (Taschenbuch)
Like the previous 2 star interviewer, I found this novel to be unnervingly boring. While Faulkner paints some scenes, neither the characters nor any of the situations has the spark that makes his other works unique. Simply stated, this book is far too controlled.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Masterpiece, 11. November 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Fable (Vintage) (Taschenbuch)
One of Faulkner's finest achievements of almost Dostoevskian intensity, second only to "Absalom, Absalom!", this anti-war novel is a must read for anyone wishing to understand our century.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Faulkner 1, Reader 0, 15. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: A Fable (Vintage) (Taschenbuch)
I generally like and admire Faulkner's work, but this novel (or whatever it is) got the better of me. Usually I make myself finish any book I read no matter how difficult, but with "A Fable" I simply couldn't do it (and I've managed the entirety of James Joyce's "Ulysses" and Proust's "Remembrance of Things Past".) I may have a Master's Degree in English, but I still had great trouble following what was going on in the book, much less appreciating what it was trying to say. It's amazing to me that the Pulitzer Prize committee could even manage to get through this thing, much less give it an award. I haven't given up on Faulkner, but for the first time since I was a college undergraduate, I've given up on a book. It took "A Fable" to bring me to my knees.
