La Découverte du ciel

Novel by Harry Mulisch

Blurb

On a cold night in Holland, Max Delius - a hedonistic, yet brilliant astronomer who loves fast cars, nice clothes and women - picks up Onno Quist, a cerebral chaotic philologist who cannot bear the banalities of everyday life. They are like fire and water. But when they learn they were conceived on the same day, it is clear that something extraordinary is about to happen. Their worlds become inextricably intertwined, as they embark on a life's journey destined to change the course of human history. This title is a magnum opus that is also a masterful thriller.

Die Liebe, schon wieder die Liebe. Mulisch beschreibt eine Zeit, die Liebe, eine Dreiecksgeschichte und erzählt vom Scheitern.

Besonders anfangs eine Welt in die man sehr gerne eintaucht. Exotische Handlungsstränge, berührende und schöngeistige Dialoge, authentische Charaktere.. Später jedoch wird es etwas wirr, die Handlung verliert ein bisschen das Ziel, das Ende war für mich nur noch bizarr... Leider. Zu Beginn dachte ich noch dies wäre eins der besten Bücher die ich bisher gelesen habe, die Komplexität der Handlung war verzaubernd, hat dann jedoch später an Beweglichkeit eingebüst.
