3.0 étoiles sur 5 JK Jerome's 'On...' Aspects of Life. 27 juin 2013
Par M. DeKalb - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Published in 1886 this is Jerome's `On...' philosophy. Through the course of the work he covers the topics of: idleness, love, the blues, being hard up (e.g. broke), vanity, getting on in the world, the weather, cats and dogs, being shy, babies, eating and drinking, furnished apartments, dress and deportment and finally upon memory.

These, Jerome's musings, are incredibly entertaining in that they've retained their pertinence through the years (127, precisely) and are presented in the most modern of fashions. This is his fight against `the best hundred books' (18) and while he presents a sequence of gloomy comedic thoughts and suggestions that are a bit morose, the observations carry a ring of truth - a series of tried and true world perspectives. Making it easy to relate to by selecting items that many people carry opinions about, Jerome draws you in and asks if you can relate.

The one major annoyance - sometimes Jerome attempts to be poetic, and offer to the reader flourishing, long-winded ravings that have the vaguest connection to the point he is attempting to make. It's very easy to drift off at these points. He performs better when he presents his material in his usual straight-forward fashion.

Some of the more quote-worthy items:

On Love:
`Both are astonished at the falling off in the other one, but neither sees their own change. If they did they would not suffer as they do.' (151)
`...we are so blind to our own shortcomings, so wide awake to those of others. Everything that happens to us is always the other person's fault.' (153)
`Chivalry is not dead: it only sleeps for want of work to do.' (194)
`... flattery is it's very life-blood.' (451)

On The Blues:
They just happen; can't be accounted for and are troublesome for anybody who is around someone with them.
`When a man or woman loves to brood over a sorrow and takes care to keep it green in their memory, you may be sure it is no longer a pain to them.' (264)

`There have been a good many funny things said and written about hardupishness, but the reality is not funny, for all that.' (328)
`It is easy enough to say that poverty is no crime. No; if it were men wouldn't be ashamed of it.' (337)

On Vanity:
We are all vain.
`It is in our faults and failings, not in our virtues, that we touch one another and find sympathy.' (434)
`... vanity is truly the motive-power that moves humanity, and it is flattery that greases the wheels.' (443)
`Let us be vain, not of our trousers and hair, but of brave hearts and working hands, of truth, of purity, of nobility.' (482)

`... fighting the battle of life is fighting against fearful odds' (519)
`It is in the petty details, not in the great results, that the interest of existence lies.' (526)
`The weather is like the government - always in the wrong.' (600)

`Swearing has the same soothing effect upon our angry passions that smashing the furniture... is so well known to exercise; added to which it is much cheaper.' (719)
`So long as the foolish people can be made comfortable the world, as a whole, will get on tolerably well.' (768)

On Being Shy:
`Shyness simply means extreme sensibility, and has nothing whatever to do with self-consciousness or with conceit...' (899)

On Babies:
`They are a deal of trouble, and they make a place untidy and they cost a lot of money...' (1040)

J.K. Jerome is a master craftsman of light fiction. This book is more a stream of consciousness than anything. I can imagine the author before the hearth smoking his pipe and thinking his thoughts....

I have been on a Jerome Jerome kick lately, reading everything. This is one of the better ones. Mostly clever and humorous and still relavent 100+ yrs. later.

Now-a-days I am regularly reading different types of literature especially under the genre HUMOR and SATIRE.When I saw the title
'Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow' by Jerome K. Jerome while browsing for good books, I immediately ordered for it. I was fully satisfied as I got what expected from this book. I look forward for many such worth reading articles in future also.

Love the author's take on the simplest of things in life. The personality of a cat and its style for interacting with humans, the description of beds, sleep, tobacco, smoking, frugal living, vanity, shy people, dressing sense. I don't think a lot of people will not like reading this and I can understand where they are coming from, but I love it even though some bits get extremely boring, and finishing the whole thing is quite a task.
