Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

To many, Bill Murray is the star of movies like Ghostbusters (reissued with certain scenes deleted and a Mystery Science Theatre-style commentary in 1999). But to golf aficionados, Murray is the clown in godawful "Hee-Haw-aiian" golf garb who plays shamelessly to the crowds at charity tee-offs from Pebble Beach to the Greater Milwaukee Open. And there is only one Bill Murray role, the gopher-snuffing, turf-smoking greenskeeper Carl Spackler in Caddyshack, whose fantasy of golf heroism gives this book its title. "This crowd has gone deadly silent," Spackler mutters with club in hand and no crowd in sight, "a Cinderella story outta nowhere--former greenskeeper and now about to become the Masters champion!"

Cinderella Story is really two books. The first is a string of outrageously digressive anecdotes about Murray's club-wielding adventures with Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer ("Incandescent ... he and Patton were born to lead armies"), Mike Ditka, John Denver, Chi Chi Rodriguez ("He had more fun playing golf than any person I'd ever seen."), Clint Eastwood, and Michael Jordan ("Relax," Murray tells himself, "his nickname is 'air,' not 'sand.'"). The prose style is mock-hepcat, insanely allusive, and very smart, like his screen persona.

This book is also the amusing, affecting autobiography of a kid who started out caddying for 60 cents a half-hour with his brothers--they got busted for giving a blind golfer three hole-in-one trophies--and wound up in showbiz. There are lots of showbiz anecdotes too, especially about Caddyshack, "arguably the greatest film ever made, although perhaps that's a drunken argument," as Murray observes. He'll get no argument from golfers, who will thrill to his expert ridicule of their mutual passion. --Tim Appelo -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

Pressestimmen

"Murray plays the funny, daffy guy with all the verve he gives to that role in his movies. If he's had a staid moment in his golfing life, it isn't told here."
--Washington Post

"No one has ever provided a sport with more comic relief than Bill Murray does golf."
--Christian Science Monitor

"A book infused with gentle humor and even poetic insight. The style is breezy, anecdotal and deadpan...like one of Murray's comic routines."
--Denver Post

Bill Murray und Golf - seit "CADDYSHACK" bilden sie die perfekte Symbiose !

Dieses Buch ist ein wie ich finde ein literarischer Leckerbissen.
Man sollte natürlich der englischen Sprache mehr als mächtig sein, und es wäre auch hilfreich, sich ein wenig mit der Welt der Golf-technischen Fachausdrücke auszukennen.

Wenn man diese Kriterien einigermaßen erfüllt, erwartet einen ein Buch, wie es wirklich nur Bill Murray fabrizieren konnte !
Geschichten voll schrägem und aus dem Leben gegriffenem Humor, wundervoll beobachtet, rund um die berühmtesten Golfplätze und -turniere der USA, und aus jedem Satz schlägt einem der pure Murray entgegen, man kann ihn sich regelrecht bildlich vorstellen - was für ein Genuß für Fans dieses Ausnahme-Komödianten !
Hier und da ein paar Anekdoten aus seinem privaten Leben und seiner Kindheit !
Obendrein noch reichhaltig bebildert !

Wer die Privatperson Bill Murray kennenlernen und verstehen möchte, findet den Schlüssel dazu über den Sport des Golfs.
Und das hier IST der Schlüssel !

Eine absolute Empfehlung !!!!

The old saying about *assuming* goes a long way in Bill Murray's "Cinderella Story."
In the hundred or so celeb penned books I've read one can usually see the author speaking their words. I assumed such here. Unfortunately, finding Bill was a tad difficult. Readers will hear him in his retorts to friends & colleagues and in the reminisces of family times with brothers Ed & Brian. Otherwise, Bill is buried and rarely surfaces.
Convoluted and confusing, the book jumps from one thought thread to the next never allowing the reader to knit an entire understandable story. Think Carl Spackler without his medication. On his meds, Carl may have made a more humorous read.
Not making this any easier to digest were the numerous editorial errors. Grammatical mistakes & typos hindered this work tremendously. I spent more time re-reading sentences hoping it was my fault and not Doubleday's. They've either got to start paying these copy folks more money or hire people who can edit with some actual sense of ability.
Too much of co-author George Peper? Perhaps. Not on par. Definately.

I thought this was a terrific book. It stands head and shoulders over most of the books that comic actors churn out that amount to little more than monologues posing as chapters. This book is a must for any Bill Murray fan, or, judging by some of these reviews, it's at least a must for Bill Murray fans who are capable of weeding through Bill's elliptical anecdotes. Sure, his stream-of-conciousness style may require a little patience, but the payoffs are worth the patience, I assure you. After reading it, I felt like I just spent the afternoon on Bill's back porch hearing all of his best stories, from his escapades on the links to his days growing up in Illinois to grand tales about making "Caddyshack." One of my favorite stories was about he wound up going to head to head in a golf tournament against John Denver, and how he tried to break Denver's concentration by exhorting the crowd to belt out some Rocky Mountain High harmonies. Great read.

This is the first book that Bill Murray has written. I must say that Murray has really done a good job! He's funny, kinda touching and appealing all the way! He talks about his life in golf from his chilhood to the present. From being a caddy, then starring in the greatest golf movie ever made, Caddyshack; and finally become a golfer himself. Some great stories about playing golf with Michael Jordan, Clint Eastwood, Scott Simpson, and Kevin Costnar, etc. Murray also talks about his family and his will to be in show business. There're occasionally some special sections with other people's comments on Bill like Chevy Chase, etc. Furthermore, you can see some pictures of baby Murray and Murray as Pat Boone! You don't have to be a Bill Murray fan to like this book. This is a book for those who are interested in humor, movies, golf, comedy, and biography!! Read this! I enjoy every page of the book and so would you!

If you are a fan of Bill Murray's and a golfer you want to like this book a lot. Little disappoints in this volumn and it is a lot of fun to read. I laughed out loud at least once in every chapter. The remarkable thing about this book is just how much a part of Bill Murray's life golf really is -- and just how much a part of golf Bill Murray has become. This is by no means a literary masterpiece, in fact, in several spots the reader is sure to wonder if any one proof-read this for continuity. However, this book does a great job in bringing the reader into the "never a dull moment" golf-life of Bill Murray. I'm left to wonder what would a Bill Murray celebrity pro-am be like -- probably a "caddy challenge match" and more fun people have had in years. A good read, that leaves you happier, if not better, for having read it.

Without a doubt Bill Murray comes off as the sexiest man alive in this book. Women who read this will be thrown into a wild Bill-desiring frenzy and probably tear their clothes off in public. Whoever would have thought that this Cinderella groundskeeper, just a drip from the bush leagues, would ever make it to playing foursomes with Michael Jordan, Hunter Thompson, Ethel Merman, Klaus von Bulow and Yoda, not to mention Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice? A rollicking romp down the green in a giant earth-devouring threshing machine could not be more fun than reading this book. You will desire this book more than sex or cigarettes once you have completed it. I know I do
