Ou get to know the criminal Franz Biberkopf who tries his best to be honest He really does But he does not have talent for 10 Mindsets That Can Cause Drug and Alcohol Addiction and Mess up Sobriety life than Keith in London Fields and eveness talent at darts Also he happens to be born into an era which could have made a better man fail And what could you possibly expect of Biberkopf then not being a better man Not even good Or passableAnd Martin Amis I all of a sudden realise that you did not only steal the plot from ovely Muriel Spark s The Driver s Seat you stole the main character from Berlin Alexanderplatz and just dressed it up and made it bigger and changed some Kneipes into English pubs But what else could I expect Those are the times And that is how it works In stories featuring big criminals the plots have to be stolen and dealt under the table as well Franz Biberkopf would have done the same As would Keith Talent And Sparks Lise would not have hesitated one single moment to grab hold of London or Berlin if she had needed either one of those cities to find her criminalI wish I had thought of Biberkopf when I read London Fields I would have oved it straight awayAnd thanks Matt for bringing Berlin Alexanderplatz to my attention again It brought back memories that helped me ike another book that kept poking at me with a dart Strange maze of books I am wandering through Like a big city full of opportunities chance meetings and stories This book is said to be one of the reuired readings for high school students in Germany When it was published in 1929 it became a monstrous hit and the book s popularity has been sustained all these yearsReason this is the first German book that used the stream of consciousness style of James Joyce This was also one of the reasons why I tried hard to first read Ulysses serialized from 1918 to 1920 prior to cracking this one up I found this easier to read despite the fact that I used a guide book while reading Ulysses I think the reason was that the English translation of Eugene Jolas is just readable Although just ike Ulysses also not always understandable Honestly I think I only understood 34 of what the author Alfred Doblin 1878 1957 was trying to tell But still The Alchemy of Color Knitting: The Art and Technique of Mastering Exquisite Palettes like Ulysses I guess it does not really matter The reason is that this modernist work does not want to be fully understood since it is multiayered with its internal rather than external as in most contemporary books conflicts Thus the book can be interpreted into so many ways that you don t know if what you think of it is right or wrong Just Pathfinder Player Companion: Alchemy Manual like in some hypothetical uestions there are just no right and wrong answersHowever the gist is somethingike this and please do correct me if I got anything incorrect because as I said I only understood 34 of it Frank Biberkopf is an ex convict case manslaughter When he steps out from prison Nazism is on the rise in Germany Frank wants to have a decent AFRICAN AMERICAN URBAN life as he sees his release as his secondife He tries on several jobs only to experience the harsh realities because Berlin at the time is unforgiving for ex convicts ike him He oses his arm from a foiled robbery he becomes a pimp he is framed for murder by his friend turned foe Reinhold but because he is not bad The Gnostic Religion looking he also falls inove at one time It s just that the woman was untrue to him so in the end Frank feels that his Computational Molecular Biology: An Algorithmic Approach (Computational Molecular Biology) life inside the prison is better that what he feels outside I felt that claustrophobic atmosphere while reading the book The irony of that feeling when you seem to be inside a prison when in fact you areiving free in an outside world is very evidentI think this book deserves a 5 star rating The only problem is that it is hard to understand Maybe it is easy to understand if it is read by a German in German Mocktails language However my advice to those who want to read this in English is to just keep on reading Doblin just goes on and on and sometimes you don t know who among the present characters in the scene is talking since the spoken parts enclosed in uotes are without references to their owners However there are many beautifully arresting passages that will keep you interested At some point extremely interested Reading this isike Clojure In Action listening to conversations where the participants are pouring their thoughts out no holds barred It reminded me of the time when I was in stilliving in our hometown ocated in a Pacific island I used to hear the conversations of my father and his buddies while they drank beer until THEY DID NOT KNOW WHAT THEY did not know what they doing They sang the debated they aughed in total abandon They discussed a BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *2 (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *2: Billionaires Secret Baby (BWWM Secret Baby Romance Contemporary Romance) lot of different interesting topics and since they had too much to drink they had the tendency to say their innermost thoughts some of them very interesting some were mundane some were really nonsense There were times that they even had ourocal priest Catholic with them and the priest could be an rowdy as my father and his friends As they say sometimes you will know the real person once he or she gets real drunk The fish is caught by its mouthThis book is BWWM (An African American Romance) (BWWM Paranormal Scifi Romance) like that The characters are mouthing their innermost thoughts and since it was Berlin at the time of Hitler s rise some of what they were saying could cause theirives or reveal what they really think about their religion as told in the Bible So some of them contained those in their minds but Doblin African Literature: Overview and Bibliography let you hear them This for me made this book very interesting Also if you want to know how was it toive in Alexanderplatz downtown Berlin in the 1920s this book is for you The place is pictured here as dark and discriminatory and yet we all ove European cities no matter in which century they were Europe was the old world and the center of

for sending his sweetheart to an early grave by way of cracking her skull and inflicting an assortment of other nasty injuriesAlfred D blin s expressionist prose reads Fall for You like mile Zola s naturalism on crack and speed as if nearly every man and woman in its five hundred pages has the jazz driven energy andan and irreverence of a Henry Miller or a Charles Bukowski And such ualities include the omniscient narrator who inserts jingles and songs headlines and screamers slogans and catchphrases as well as an array of other verbal flotsam that invade a reader s five senses as if one

Ngly trips him up New York Review Books deserves the highest praise for republishing this German iterary classic in Michael Hofmann s stunning translation Mr Hofmann also furnishes an extensive Afterward wherein he expatiates on the ife and times of Alfred D blin the history of Berlin Alexanderplatz and the challenges of translating the author s vibrant Nicholas Flamels First Codex language into EnglishActually it s Michael Hofmann s observations onanguage I found most helpful and for good reason in all the many novels I ve read over the years I have never been as keenly aware of the role of a translator as when reading Berlin Alexanderplatz I know I know Berlin in the 1920s was a special time and a special place but I had the sense all the many depictions portrayals sketches and most especially the words of Franz Biberkopf and others could have also been from a bustling current day international metropolis say London New York or Los Angeles This to say D blin s novel is as alive today for readers as it was back when Berliners gobbled it up when first publishedAnd such crisp colorful Alien language There have been freuent comparisons to James Joyce s Ulysses a novel D blin greatly admired and stream of consciousness but if there is one aspect of Berlin Alexanderplatz I wouldike to stress it is this I never had the need to go back and reread any passage or bit of dialogue nor when istening did I replay any part of the audio book the writing is that clear and accessibleSo what manner of man is Franz Biberkopf now that he s out of prison and returns to Berlin At one point he s described as a slick dude hey Franz is as hip as any hip hop artist Here s a passage that comes at a reader as part of one unending gush This Franz Biberkopf previously cement worker
