A brilliant novel about love, life, and the crushing, terrible horror of war. ( )
  illmunkeys | Apr 22, 2021 |
Der junge australische Arzt Dorrigo Evans gerät im zweiten Weltkrieg in japanische Kriegsgefangenschaft und wird beim Bau der Thailand-Burma-Eisenbahn, umgangssprachlich aufgrund der im Zuge des Baus begangenen Kriegsverbrechen als Todeseisenbahn bezeichnet, wider Willen zum Helden und Vorbild.

Flanagans Roman schildert nicht nur Evans Zeit in japanischer Kriegsgefangenschaft, der Roman erzählt Evans ganzes Leben, welches neben den Kriegserfahrungen von einer obsessiven Liebesbeziehung geprägt ist. Gekonnt integriert Flanagan aber auch die Schicksale anderer am Bau der Todeseisenbahn beteilgter Personen, deren Umgang mit Schuld und Leid sowie die Aufarbeitung der Kriegsverbrechen.

Flanagan beschönigt nichts und überzeugt so vor allem in seiner drastischen und realistischen Schilderung des Lagerhorrors im Dschungel Siams. Doch auch seine Betrachtung der weiteren Entwicklung der Täter und Opfer ist so wie der Genremix zwischen Dokumentation der Kriegsverbrechen, Antikriegs- und Abenteuerroman, Entwicklungs- und Liebesgeschichte ist äußerst gelungen.

This was a love story and a WWII story not very well combined. I listened to this as an audiobook and found it very disjointed. The first 4 hours was nothing more than a conversation between the main character, Dorrigo Evans, and his uncle's wife, with whom he was having an affair. The next 6 hours was the story of Dorrigo's platoon being captured by the Japanese and marched to Burma to begin building the railroad; somewhat better then first section. It focused mostly on how different soldiers responded to the deprivation of food and cruelty (very gory). The last section was told from the perspective of the Japanese captors, which I felt was already told in section 2; by then I did not care a whit about this story. I guess I was expecting more from a Man-Booker Prize winner. I almost quit 2-3 times, but forced myself to continue. I did skim the last third of the book. When I read the description of the book I thought it sounded like The Bridge Over the River Kwai, which was much better, IMHO. This was just too impressionistic for my tastes. (and too long!) 467 pages ( )

I don't think reading books that win the Man Booker Prize are for me. The language of this is flowery which doesn't usually bother me, but when paired with the plot of the story, the language seemed over the top and unnecessary. The characters are well developed with many chances for the reader to get to know their faults and understand why they do the things they do - however, this made every character difficult to like or root for. It helped me understand why events unfolded and why people made certain decisions, but when pairing all these aspects together, I just didn't care about any aspect of the book. ( )

WOW! This is some of the finest writing I've ever encountered.

This is the story of Australian POWs in Burma, centered around Dorrigo Evans. Just before being shipped out, Dr. Evans fell in love with Amy, a young woman married to his uncle. Through flashbacks, we see their early relationship, as well as that of Dr. Evans with his fiancée, Ella. We also get to know many of the POWs and the Japanese and Korean camp officers.

What makes this story extraordinary is the writing. As one prisoner is struggling to walk after an injury, I actually hoped he would die to end his suffering. The writing is so vivid that it made the scenes of torture hard to read, yet I couldn't stop. The descriptions of love, of Amy's mannerisms....just tugged me into the story. Several times, I went back and re-read certain scenes as new information was revealed.

I liked that we had the perspectives of the Japanese and Korean soldiers. I liked the strong sense among POWs that they had to survive collectively -- we and us being the operating principle. I liked the descriptions of how Dorrigo felt about Ella vs Amy vs other women -- with all the subtleties and nuances.

Read this! ( )

This novel would have been far more powerful and coherent if Amy were excised from the story. It is the story of Dorrigo, as one man among many P.O.W.’s in the Asian jungle, that is the beating heart of this book: an excruciating, terrifying, life-altering story that is an indelible fictional testament to the prisoners there. Taken by themselves, these chapters create a slim, compelling story: Odysseus’s perseverance through a bloody war and his return home at last to Penelope (in this case, Ella) and his efforts, like his fellow soldiers’, to see if he can put the horrors and suffering of war in the rearview mirror, and somehow construct a fulfilling Act II to a broken life.
