Rezension:

" Some years, very good books win the Man Booker Prize but this year a masterpiece has won it" ( A.C. Grayling, Chair of Judges, Man Booker Prize 2014)

"A novel of extraordinary power, deftly told and hugely affecting. A classic in the making... Masterful" ( Observer)

" Devastatingly beautiful" ( Sunday Times)

"Utterly convincing... A grand examination of what it is to be a good man and a bad man in the one flesh, and, above all, of how it is to live after survival... To say Flanagan creates a rich tapestry is to overly praise tapestries" (Thomas Keneally Guardian)

"Elegantly wrought, measured and without an ounce of melodrama, Flanagan's novel is nothing short of a masterpiece" ( Financial Times)

"Considered by many to be the finest Australian novelist of his generation... A journey of loss and discovery, this is a novel replete with scenes that stay with the reader long after the final page… Never sentimental or overwritten, Flanagan explores human reactions, large and small... The book Mr Flanagan was born to write" ( The Economist)

" An absolutely almighty book and unfailingly beautifully written" (Neel Mukherjee)

"An unforgettable story of men at war... Flanagan's prose is richly innovative and captures perfectly the Australian demotic... He evokes Evans' affair with Amy, and his subsequent soulless wanderings, with an intensity and beauty that is as poetic as the classical Japanese literature that peppers this novel" (Melissa Katsoulis The Times)

"Flanagan’s novel [has] grace and unfathomability… Flanagan’s writing courses like a river, sometimes black with mud, sludge and corpses, sometimes bright with moonlight… The stories of these casualties of fate catch at the soul" (Catherine Taylor Sunday Telegraph)

"Powerful, often brutal love story… His feel for language, history’s persistent undercurrent and subtle detail sets his fiction apart. There isn’t a false note in this book. He can evoke emotion without a trace of sentimentality or bathos... One of the finest novels published in English this year" (Eileen Battersby Irish Times)

Rezension:

" Some years, very good books win the Man Booker Prize but this year a masterpiece has won it" ( A.C. Grayling, Chair of Judges, Man Booker Prize 2014)

"Flanagan is a fine writer and through the voices of a broad cast of characters, he takes us deep into the secret heat of the war… In less capable hands these scenes might be mawkish; Flanagan imbues them with extraordinary power... A novel of extraordinary power, deftly told and hugely affecting. A classic in the making... Masterful" (Alex Preston The Observer)

"Elegantly wrought, measured and without an ounce of melodrama, Flanagan's novel is nothing short of a masterpiece" ( Financial Times)

"The poetry in this novel isn’t just by Japanese poets. It is in the prose: strong, muscular, rhythmic, sometimes biblical in its resonances, and charged with a hypnotic power… devastatingly beautiful" (Christina Patterson The Sunday Times)

"Nothing could have prepared us for this immense achievement... The Narrow Road to the Deep North is beyond comparison... Intensely moving" ( The Australian)

Neuware - WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2014 Forever after, there were for them only two sorts of men: the men who were on the Line, and the rest of humanity, who were not. In the despair of a Japanese POW camp on the Burma Death Railway, surgeon Dorrigo Evans is haunted by his love affair with his uncle's young wife two years earlier. Struggling to save the men under his command from starvation, from cholera, from beatings, he receives a letter that will change his life forever. This is a story about the many forms of love and death, of war and truth, as one man comes of age, prospers, only to discover all that he has lost. 464 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9780099593584
