Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

It's been hailed as a masterpiece and reviled as trash, but A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole has never been lightly dismissed. By creating Ignatius J. Reilly, a bigger-than-life bag of wind stuffed with some of the most comically outrageous and disturbingly insightful opinions ever put to paper, Toole made an indelible mark on the landscape of American literature--a feat recognized with the posthumous publication of this novel, followed by a Pulitzer Prize. Forced to wade the lower depths of New Orleans society, the gargantuan Ignatius, his poor mother in tow, takes us on a tour de force through the back alleys and juke joints of the French Quarter of New Orleans as he implores the gods, railing against the hypocrisy of contemporary politics and the crushing weight of late capitalism. "The luminous years ... dimmed into dross; Fortuna's wheel had turned ... Having once been so high, humanity fell so low. What had once been dedicated to the soul was now dedicated to the sale." Toole's suicide at 32 silenced a uniquely promising literary voice, denying his critics and fans the opportunity to determine whether his talent was a flash in the pan or a first spark of genius. Read A Confederacy of Dunces and you'll no doubt have formed your own inflexible opinion, which you'll defend tenaciously against all reason. --George Laney, Amazon.com

I don't really recall how i got this title on my list of books to read someday. I finally arrived to it and decided to get it for the kindle, before going out on vacation. The beginning was a little slow, but after 20 minutes reading it, i couldn't stop! It is a weird mixture of comedy and drama... haven't read something like this in a long time (or perhaps ever).. makes you really wonder if the book takes itself seriously or is a full-on comedy... behind all that you'll find characters that are thoroughly elaborated and with a lot of personality, which will make you love and/or hate more than one of them... it's a small novel, so you can devour it fast.

Dies ist eines meiner Lieblingsbücher. Im Orginal sprich in englisch noch lustiger als in deutsch. Der Hauptdarsteller ist so ein komischer Kauz und sein Leben so abstrus das resultiert in allerlei urkomischen Situationen. Ignaz ist ein unbequemer Typ und keiner den man in sein (Leser)Herz schliessen wird. Aber gelacht habe ich trotzdem ausgiebig bei dem Buch. Ich fand es in gewisser Weise auch spannend, weil ich wissen wollte wo das am Ende alles hinführt. Interessanterweise hab ich nur Leute getroffen die das Buch entweder heiss und innig lieben oder komplett hassen. Anscheinend polarisiert der Hauptdarsteller. Ich sage nur lest selbst- es gibt nur dieses eine Buch von John Toole, er ist leider viel zu früh gestorben.

This is a very funny book, full of characters with such combined stupidity index that nothing is normal. Extremely good use of speech levels: one can easily identify who is speaking from the language used. A classic book.

One day two of my band mates came along citing from this book with the effect that we all have been laughing tears between rehearsing. I read this book in a few days or better say nights as I couldn't stop reading and laughing. Wonderful characters, fantastically written, sarcastically analysing 60ies american society. English teachers: get your students to read it!
This Pulitzer price novel should bring more people to laugh and cite passages by dear Ignatius.

John Kennedy Toole killed himself because nobody would publish this book. His efforts had gone unnoticed, thought he; he was a failure. History proves him wrong, as we have seen A Confederacy of Dunces go on to win the Pulitzer and has reached and entertained countless readers. The book itself is sheer genius, as was the man behind it.
There is not a moment where this book lags. Every sentence keeps popping fresh bubbles. The imagery is hilarious and the word choice and sentence structure is exquisite! Some parts of the book make you laugh outright at the sheer insanity of the writer's humor. The characters seem to come alive as you read.
Ignatius Reilly is a 300 lb. lovable goof who lives with his mother. Throughout the book, we see him combatting every thing and every person he encounters. He is a martyr to non-conformity and to his ego. Very set in his ways, he goes from job to job, angering people to the point of insanity! Yet, he simply doesn't care. His poor mother! All you think about during this book is what will Ignatius do next?
John Kennedy Toole was a also martyr, not only to his art but, like Ignatius Reilly, also to his own ego. He breathed life into his characters and it was too much for him to bear that nobody could see them alive and performing right before our very eyes, and so the tragedy occured which planted the seed for a generation of readers to harvest his great humor and style. While he is not alive to reap the benefits he so desired, the book is a gift to a multitude of readers. One can only hope that the John Kennedy Toole's of today are not overlooked.

Initially, one is tempted to regard the protagonist Ignatius as a vile, offensive slob, but as you continue, you come to admire him for his gall, his meanness, his bloated self-confidence and his overwhelming self-righteousness. The plaisir du texte is of course, enhanced by the wonderful interweaving web of plot and subplots, and by the colourful array of characters. This is one of those rare novels that becomes so addictive that you compulsively read on between the fits of hysterical laughter. Not one word is unnecessary, not once sentence is superfluous. It is in fact, absolutely brilliant and for someone like myself who has no intention of reading Rabelais or Cervantes, it is sufficient. I recommend it also as a very effective cure for depression.

Format: Taschenbuch
This book is either loved or hated. Five stars or one, and not much in between. I understand where the haters are coming from . . . being one myself. What I don't understand is what makes this book so incredibly funny in the eyes of so many people. It is slow, bland, and evenly irritating throughout. I've never read a book where I wished so much that the main character would get hit by a truck. The endless streams of wordy nonsense from this bum's mouth is madening. I hate this book, and it IS NOT FUNNY in the least, EVER. Who are these five star people anyway?

I bought the book because I learned about the tragic of its author. Also I found out in a research that the plot was and is to be transfered into a motion picture. However, all attempts so far failed because of somekind of "negative charma" of the whole stuff.

However, the book is hillariously written and I gave many good laughs while reading it. Reading the novel is suggested to those who have a fine sense of humor and a vivid imagination for visualizing the described characters.
