Bekenntnisse des Hochstaplers Felix Krull Read ✓ 2 Thomas Mann ê 2 Read & download L appeared in a short story Mann wrote in 1911 The story wasn't published until 1936 in the book Stories of Three Decades along with 23 other stories written from 1896 to 1929 the year in which he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature Much later he expanded the original story into a novel managing to finish and publish Part 1 The Early Years of the Confessions of Felix Krull to great public success Due to Mann's death in 1955 the saga of the morally flexible and irresistible con man remains unfinish. WARNING This book review contains spoilersI would not recommend the book Confessions of Felix Krull by Thomas Mann to anyone I can honestly say it was one of the worst books I have ever readThe book is basically about a pretty boy who gets everything he wants in life I did enjoy the book at first but as the story progressed it became less believable and annoying Felix Krull the main character and narrator grew up in Germany As a child when Felix didn t want to go to school he would pretend to be sick so his parents wouldn t make him go Apparently he was so good at pretending to be sick that he actually gave himself legitimate symptoms such as a fever I admit that seemed like it was testing the limits of reality but I believed it for the sake of the story Felix s father owned a wine shop and Felix was a young adult his father s business went bankrupt Felix s family was evicted from their house so his father committed suicide This is where the book peaked for me Felix was distraught when his father died but his father s death did not seem to have much of a long term effect on Felix If my father killed himself I would never be the same Felix just continued to go about his life and hardly mentioned his father after his death A realistic situation would be if the tragic story of his father was his motivation for the rest of his life I was interested to see where Felix s life would take him at that point in the story The book had a lot of potential so far but Mann let me downAfter the death of Felix s father Felix s life continually and uickly took positive turns Felix s godfather Schimmelpreester got Felix a job as an elevator boy at a hotel in Paris and the manager of the restaurant at the hotel noticing how amicable Felix was with the guests gave Felix a job as a waiter As a waiter Felix continued to charm the guests with his intelligence and extraordinarily good looks He even befriended a wealthy guest named Louis Venosta Venosta s parents thought that Venosta s romantic interest in a girl named Zaza was too distracting for him so they decided to send him on a trip around the world to rid him of this distraction Venosta asked Felix to take the trip for him using his identity so that Venosta could stay in France with Zaza and Felix agreedNow Felix was assuming the identity of a man traveling the world who had money than he could possibly spend The first stop on the trip was Portugal Felix meets and falls in love with a young woman about his age named Zouzou Apparently Mann was horrible at coming up with original names Zouzou did not want to engage Felix romantically claiming that all men had a warped perception of what love really was I was very pleased at this point because Felix finally wasn t getting everything he wanted Unfortunately for me the book ends with Zouzou giving in and kissing Felix Of course The whole book is about how Felix EASILY went from being broke when his father died to living luxuriously in Portugal as Louis VenostaOther than the atrocious plot I was not satisfied with Confessions of Felix Krull because it was very wordy At times there would be many pages where there was no dialogue In these wide gaps Felix would use pretentious vocabulary to describe events in his life that had little connection to the plot I often found myself wondering what I was reading and why I was reading itPlease do not read this book It may make you angry

Bekenntnisse des Hochstaplers Felix Krull Read ✓ 2 Thomas Mann ê 2 Read & download Thomas Mann's final novel recounts the strange and entranced career of the gifted swindler Felix Krull through his childhood and early manhood Krull is a man unhampered by moral precepts that govern the conduct of ordinary mortals and this natural lack of scruple coupled with his formidable mental and physical endowments enables him to develop the arts of subterfuge and deception with astonishing success and to rise swiftly from poverty to affluence Following Krull along the shady paths his nature has de. I had a sudden thought about this book which I had read some time ago which was how curious it was that a writer s last work was focused on a confidence trickster and his trickery when what is writing but a confidence trick created with the collusion of the reader As a result this is a book about fantasy and invention in which we might be best advised to trust nothing and to believe lessI wondered how far the subject of the book was a confession on the part of the author the Patriarch with bad relations with many of his children the husband with a taste for same sex relationshipsthe non political man who ended up in exile for political reasons all the same we can see the author as one who played at different identities as much as his fictional herosuch anyway were my idle thoughts on my way to a hospital out patient appointment as I wondered if my shirt and underwear would pass muster as Felix s did before the conscription board

Review Bekenntnisse des Hochstaplers Felix Krull

Bekenntnisse des Hochstaplers Felix Krull Read ✓ 2 Thomas Mann ê 2 Read & download Stined him to take the reader moves through a world peopled by bizarre characters from the lowest to the highest reaches of European society Chameleon like Krull readily adapts himself to the situation of the moment and so adept in the practices of chicanery does he become that his victims almost seem to count themselves privileged And so it is too with the women who encounter the irresistible Krull for where Krull is the normal laws of human behavior are in suspenseOriginally the character of Felix Krul. There are few authors whose works bring me as much pleasure as Thomas Mann This continues to be the case with this all too short and all too incomplete book Mann was working on this when he died in 1955 I m sure this information is out there Mann is significant enough of a literary figure that like Joyce and Eliot and other titans of 20th century literature he is documented almost to the point of exhaustion though I ve yet to run across it I can t help but wondering what Mann intended for this book The Early Years designation would seem to suggest that this was the first entry of some sort of larger series even with this book clocking in at 384 pages it s not clear how long the work was intended to be I mean 384 pages is not necessarily a short book but it feels like Mann is just starting to hit his stride in the last 100 or so pages of the book his prose begins to become much philosophical and poetic as Krull begins to travel and from a narrative perspective it feels like he s barely begun to document Krull s life as a confidence man Krull is barely two months into his travels and just around a year into having left home The potential for expansion and continuation is fairly staggering The book itself ends abruptly though it manages to end on both a humorous beat as well as a nice cliff hanger for the avid reader and all I wanted there at the end was for it to continue to go on and as a reader I am sad that it will never be completeIt was only after I read this that I realized it was a continuation of a short story Mann had written once I recognized that I remembered that of all the stories in the Death in Venice collection that Vintage put out the story this is based on was the true standout of the collection In fact it would be a number of years after I read that collection that I would return to Mann as I found myself a bit underwhelmed by most of the stories It goes absolutely without saying but I ll say it anyways that I am overjoyed that I returned to Mann eventually as his oeuvre is simply stunning I cannot imagine my literary life without himI was worried starting this book that I would not like it as much without Woods as the translator but Mann s writing is as wonderful as ever here Mann himself was too talented of a writer to overly suffer a lesser translation so while this was not as good as the Woods stuff it is an accomplished enough work that it shines through But the real jewel of the book is the character of Krull himself his narrative voice is a joy to read he is funny witty and observant in a way that manages to disclose an overwhelming amount of details as Mann loves to do while always flowing at a brisk clip This book retains the compulsive readability and feeling of being over much too uickly that Mann s other later works Joseph and His Brothers Doctor Faustus also had and though it never rises to the heights of those later books it should still be considered an essential read for lovers of Mann Sleep soundly Dream of Being and of Life Dream of the whirling galaxies which since they are there bear with joy the labour of their existence Dream of the shapely arm with its ancient armature of bones and of the flowers of the field that are able aided by the sun to break up lifeless matter and incorporate it into their living bodies And don t forget to dream of stone of a mossy stone in a mountain brook that has lain for thousands upon thousands of years cooled bathed and scoured by foam and flood Look upon its existence with sympathy Being at its most alert gazing upon Being in its profoundest sleep and salute it in the name of Creation All s well when Being and Well Being are in some measure reconciled A very good night
