Inhaltsangabe zu „To Rise Again at a Decent Hour“ von Joshua Ferris

A big, brilliant, profoundly observed novel about the mysteries of modern life by National Book Award Finalist Joshua Ferris, one of the most exciting voices of his generation §Paul O'Rourke is a man made of contradictions: he loves the world, but doesn't know how to live in it. He's a Luddite addicted to his iPhone, a dentist with a nicotine habit, a rabid Red Sox fan devastated by their victories, and an atheist not quite willing to let go of God. §Then someone begins to impersonate Paul online, and he watches in horror as a website, a Facebook page, and a Twitter account are created in his name. What begins as an outrageous violation of his privacy soon becomes something more soul-frightening: the possibility that the online "Paul" might be a better version of the real thing. As Paul's quest to learn why his identity has been stolen deepens, he is forced to confront his troubled past and his uncertain future in a life disturbingly split between the real and the virtual. §At once laugh-out-loud funny about the absurdities of the modern world, and indelibly profound about the eternal questions of the meaning of life, love and truth, TO RISE AGAIN AT A DECENT HOUR is a deeply moving and constantly surprising tour de force.

Gutes Buch, hatte aber auch ein paar Längen.

Was man von hier aus sehen kann

Romantisch und skurril, an manchen Stellen unfassbar alltäglich, bewegend und traumhaft. Ein bisschen wie die Fabelhafte Welt der Amelie

Vom Ende an

Story gut, Umsetzung schlecht. Als hätte die Autorin nur den groben Plot zum abdrucken gegeben.
