Buchclub Extra: Troposphere von Scarlett Thomas

Willkommen beim nächsten Buchclub Extra

Für alle, denen die Zeit bis zur nächsten Leserunde zu lang wird, bieten wir wieder ein Intermezzo an:

Troposphere von Scarlett Thomas

Die Studentin Ariel findet in einem Bücherantiquariat ein Exemplar eines sehr seltenen Buches von Thomas Lumas, dessen Werk sie im Rahmen ihrer Arbeit liest. Das Buch steht im Ruf, verflucht zu sein - alle, die es gelesen haben, konnten sich nicht sehr lange an dem darin enthaltenen Wissen erfreuen...

Neugierig geworden? Ab 1. Mai kann darüber diskutiert werden, wir freuen uns auf alle Mitleser!

Eine Leseprobe des deutschen Ebooks gibt es wie immer bei Amazon, wer möchte, kann natürlich auch die englische Originalausgabe lesen: The End of Mr Y.

Ich bin schon sehr gespannt, die Leseprobe hatte mir damals gut gefallen.

Buch habe ich mir gerade gekauft. Es kann also ab dem 1. Mai losgehen.

Auf mich wartet ein Stück toter Baum, was im Allgemeinen heißt, dass ich es nicht erst gestern gekauft habe.

So, Amazon (böse, böse ) hat nun meinen festen Vorsatz, mein deutsches Taschenbuch zu lesen, mit dem heutigen Kindle Daily Deal unterwandert:

The End of Mr Y.

Wie es aussieht, werde ich das Buch nun doch im Original lesen, es ist schon auf dem Paperwhite. Allerdings werde ich erst am Wochenende anfangen, da mir mein eigenes Chaos langsam doch etwas zu viel wird, d. h. ich muss vorher noch was "abarbeiten" bzw. fertig lesen.

Ich habe heute Abend begonnen, da ich Morgen unterwegs bin. Es gefällt mir bis jetzt richtig gut.

Da ihr ohnehin etwas mehr liest, wie mir scheint, müsste das ganz gut passen, wenn ich etwas Vorsprung habe.

Ich habe gestern 10 % des Buches gelesen und wie gesagt, finde ich es bisher sehr interessant, obwohl ich nicht die leiseste Ahnung habe, in welche Richtung sich die Geschichte entwickeln wird.

Was ich immer sehr gerne mag, ist diese Form eine Geschichte in einer Geschichte zu erzählen. Es sind also zwei Handlungsebenen, die Studentin die ein sehr seltenes Buch entdeckt, auf dem ein Fluch liegt und die des Buches selber.

Fluch hört sich jetzt etwas nach einer trivialen Geschichte an, das ist es ganz und gar nicht. Die Autorin hat deutlich die Absicht uns hier eine Geschichte mit starkem philosophischen Charakter zu präsentieren.

Ich wäre vermutlich auch mit dem englischen Original nicht zurechtgekommen, weil es sprachlich und inhaltlich anspruchsvoller ist als das Cover vermuten lies, aber ich hatte ja schon durch die Leseprobe einen guten ersten Eindruck.

Also weiter...

Ich bin dann gestern noch ein gutes Stück weitergekommen und etwa bei 30%.

Ich habe die Befürchtung, dass die Autorin das Buch etwas überfrachtet. Da gab es jetzt Einschübe über die Relativitätstheorie und Homöopathie, die zwar für mich interessant waren, aber das Buch dann doch etwas von der eigentlichen Handlung wegführen.

Es wirkt als wenn die Autorin sich diese Themen angelesen hat und sie unbedingt im Buch unterbringen musste. Gerade die physikalischen Erklärungen hätten etwas kürzer sein können, so bleibt bei mir davon nicht wirklich etwas hängen.

Ich muss auch sagen, dass die sexuelle Komponente mir in dem Buch nicht gefällt, aber das ist vermutlich eine Frage der persönlichen Ausrichtung. Ich hätte dann doch lieber ganz darauf verzichtet.

Das klingt jetzt alles etwas kritisch, aber es ist weiterhin ein Buch, das ich gerne weiterlese.

Ich bin total begeistert von dem Buch (knapp zur Hälfte durch, wozu Arztwartezimmer doch alles gut sind) und finde es ganz schön krass was sich da hinter dieser glattgebügelten Mainstream-Cover Fassade verbirgt.
Wenn du jetzt nicht so explizit auf die Infodumps hingewiesen hättest wären sie mir wahrscheinlich in dieser Form gar nicht aufgefallen, und der recht unverblümte Umgang mit Sex ist wahrscheinlich wirklich Geschmackssache. Ich finde es passt ganz gut zur Hauptdarstellerin und solange es nicht noch mehr unappetitliche Details gibt...

Muss jetzt erstmal in die Apotheke und zu den Katholen
Spoiler:
Wollte ja schon immer mal Mäuschen spielen

Ich habe es jetzt auch zur Hälfte durch, lese es wirklich gerne, aber etwas irre ist es schon.

Spoiler:
Ich bin gerade etwas fassungslos, das mit dem Mausegott hatte ich nun gar nicht erwartet. Es wird immer verrückter, wo mag das noch hinführen...


Jetzt gibt es Abendbrot und dann muss ich noch etwas weiterlesen.

Edit:

Noch was ganz anderes. Als ich längere Zeit den kursiven Text gelesen hatte, erschien mir der normale Text nach links zu kippen. Geht euch das auch so oder muss ich das untersuchen lassen?

Was, ihr seid schon halb durch und ich hab noch nicht mal angefangen?

Wir haben doch erst den 2. Mai!

Ich muss vorher noch Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookshop fertig lesen (das kann ich jetzt unmöglich unterbrechen, bin bei 83%), aber dann geht es los, vielleicht schon morgen Abend.

Das habe ich auch, bin gespannt auf deine Einschätzung. Danach entscheide ich, ob es noch gelesen wird?
