an unusual lovestory,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Harold and Maude (Taschenbuch)
The book, "Harold and Maude", written in 1971 by Colin Higgins is an amusing but
at the same time a serious and a philosophic one. When I first read the summary on the paperback cover, I thought that this book wouldn`t be worth the money.
But I was wrong! Colin Higgins did create an unusaul lovestory which deals with love between young and old , immature and mature and one that is averse and one that loves life . These are absolute contrasts and the writer didn't only cope to create a lovestory, but he did create a - for me - incredible lovestory, which isn't only about love. The book was written in a way that one doesn`t notice they were loving each other. I think the author did that on purpose, to make it more interesting for readers, who usually don't like typical lovestories.
Collectively I would say that it is a book for everyone, because if you are not interested in love, then you will be at least interested in a 20-year-old man-child who spends his time at funerals and commits fake suicides to make his mother display hysteric.
