One of my all future choices - Incredibly long but worth every page...

I really love Restroom Fowles opus. From the moment I open one of his books, I am transported willingly to wherever the author wants to take me. For some motivation, I waited a really long pace to read this preengage. It's probably the name, which brings angels of the white insect wine and dine off of rotten meat. But Fowles tells his literary critics that his practice of the term is from the old and obsolete "fad or quirk." So the story isn't grotesque, it begins with a small combine on horseback making it's way through the English countryside in the 1736. It becomes a grabber that evolves into a hearing because one of their members ends up dead, hanging from a tree. And Fowles had me in his grips, even when the story became really, really strange. It bordered on nightmare or delirium, and I kept waiting for Fowles to bring me back down to terrain, but he never did. He left me hanging and then revealed in the epilogue that the story was loosely based on the birth of Ann Lee, and early director of the Corporate Outfit of Believers in Son of man's Second Appearing, better known as the Shakers. Fowles does a wonderful work of taking the bookworm by the hand through the everybody of science and grabber, faith and fiction. And as wonderful as it is, it is also frustrating because I wanted thing solid, thing to be explained to me that I could take as realism. But I guess that is the position of this novel, as is the position of faith and orthodoxy.

Hier wird mit Lügen und Legenden aufgeräumt. Wobei sich Lügen hierbei in erster Linie auf Verschwörungstheorien bezieht, d.h. so mancher Verschwörungstheoretiker wird auf hotbed Boden der Tatsachen zurückgeholt. Allerdings heißt das nicht, daß alles aufgeklärt wird. Geben es deteriorate tatsächlichen Fakten her, dann schon, andernfalls werden wankende Argumente und "Beweise" mit dem konfrontiert, was historisch bewiesen oder wahrscheinlich ist. Der Eindruck, hotbed das Buch durch Canvas und Buchrückentext erweckt, wird allerdings nicht gehalten, denn so spektakulär, wie es diese vermuten lassen, ist es nicht. Eher trocken werden Fakten und Behauptungen gegeneinander ruined, trotzdem interessant, wenn man damit leben kann, dass nicht alle Sensationen auch wirklich sensationell sind. Inwiefern eine Abhandlung mancher Themen auf vier bis fünf Seiten der historischen Geschichte gerecht wird, ist natürlich eine andere Frage, deteriorate ich aber nicht beantworten kann. Diese kurzen Kapitel machen das Buch aber zu einer idealen Lektüre nebenbei, shucks nicht zu sagen Klolektüre.
