I can't stop looking at this book.
it is difficult to say i liked this book. liking has very little to do with how the book impacts one. i am certain i would give this book five stars in the future. after more time. after a longer life. thomas bernhard has my respect. the book is tough and unwavering as most of his writing is. it does not aim to do anything other what its aims to do are. the whole thing could perhaps come off as repetitive if it weren't for the way in which that repetition slightly shifts to draw us into corners. corners of rothiemer's thoughts and the way in which they are being patched together by the paper's holder. for being so slim, the book is exhausting in a lot of ways, none of which are bad or trite. the book is exhausting because it is unrelenting in its pursuit of understanding the obsession of a genius who has come to have hung himself. this is not an easy thing to explore. to me thomas bernhard writes as only he can write. he writes of that which comes naturally to him to write. i do not mean that either of those statements should say that what he does is the easiest thing he can be doing. on the contrary, given the fuzzy and pervasive noise of people's best advice and the floating notion of what one ought to do this is damn tough.
Well folks, it turns out I am a closeted Jane Austin fan. Before, when I thought of this author my mouth automatically turned down at the corners in quite the sour expression, but after much humming and hawing, I read Pride and Prejudice. And I couldn't put it down. There were times when I was reading that I thought, 'Boy I certainly should be bored right now.' Instead I just kept turning those pages. Who would have thought I was so interested in books of manners?
I thought this was a fun and clever story. I liked that my kids were finally interested in something I read. However, I don't really enjoy graphic novels. I think I found the descriptions of the authors and the illustrator more amusing than the story itself.
