Description du produit

Revue de presse

The Finkler Question is a marvellous book: very funny, of course, but also very clever, very sad and very subtle. It is all that it seems to be and much more than it seems to be. A completely worthy winner of this great prize. --Andrew Motion, chair of the Man Booker judges

The Finkler Question is wonderful. A blistering portrayal of a funny man who at last confronts the darkness of the world --Beryl Bainbridge

A real giant. A great, great writer --Jonathan Safran Foer --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Présentation de l'éditeur

Julian Treslove, ein zurückhaltender Reporter und Sam Finkler, ein berühmter jüdischer Philosoph sind alte Schulfreunde. Trotz der langen Zeitspanne haben sie nie den Kontakt zueinander verloren - genau wie den zu ihrem Lehrer Libor Sevick. Der Abend, an dem sie sich zum Essen treffen wird zu einer Nacht voll bittersüßer Erinnerungen. Auf dem Heimweg wird Treslove brutal überfallen... --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Trois amis, deux hommes dans leur cinquantaine et leur ancien prof, deux veufs et un troisième incapable de rester avec une femme, deux juifs et un troisième qui rêve d'être un aussi! Une réflexion sur la judaïté, sur l'amour en couple, sur le succès, sur la paternité - et tout cela raconté par un personnage qui fait penser à Woody Allen. A recommander vivement!

Il n'y a pas d'action, il y a simplement un homme qui pose des questions et change son avis sans cesse.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Identity and Connections 3 janvier 2011
Par Stanley C. Diamond - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is in some ways a puzzling book. It has two primary aspects, an internal dialogue of several characters about the meaning and nature of being Jewish in England today where so much anti-semitism is extant and where so much negative feeling is evoked regarding the Zionist-Palestinian question, and a marvelous working of the connections between the three main charactters- two Jews (one self-hating) and their gentile friend who is fascinated by Jewishness. The title itself is a euphemism for "the Jewish Question." The interplay among the three and the development of these characters is worth the price of the book although perhaps not the Man Booker Prize which it received. The dialogue is clever, intellectual and quite thorough. I am not sure that aspect of the writing might be perceived as highly relevant by a non-Jew however. At the same time, there is an element of universality to it as well.

The book is extremely well-written. This talented author has tackled two subplots with skill and humor. The women in this book assume a more peripheral role in the lives of the characters but they are still essential to the story even though two of them are no longer present by the time the book unfolds. I did find the book easy to read and rather fast moving and I also found the discussions quite interesting but I would not call it a prize winner. For those interested in the depth of connections between people, it is a humorous and serious treatment of the subject. It is only toward the end of the book when the true power of the bond that links the main characters is finally and fully developed.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Finished. At last! 2 janvier 2013
Par MMRudy - Publié sur

This is a slightly amusing book that seems as pointless as the history it tells. It is the story of three adult Englishmen, friends, in contemporary London. Two are widowers and Jews and one is unmarried and not, but maybe wants to be, a Jew and/or married. The men seem to wander through life without much purpose or intent. Both separately and together, they rehearse Israel's right to exist, and anti-Semitism as it apparently exists in England. The meaning of Judaism as a religion or philosophy or guideline for living is largely lost.

The women who are peripheral to the male protagonists are more interesting although, I suppose, stereotyped: a Jewish "mother"; two somewhat neurotic, thin lipped, dare I write it, WASPs; a woman who converts to Judaism; the wife held in memory as an ideal partner. Of course, at least two of them are dead, so we see them through the eyes of their husbands and lovers. Still, the women seem more human, more purposeful, than the men they support.

The book becomes more intriguing about three quarters of the way through. The story quickens and develops into semi-tragedy. Then, it simply ends, with nothing resolved, little learned, and a dim future on the horizon. Frankly, if this wasn't a book group assignment, I would have quit after the first few chapters (or parts thereof).

After finishing the last pages, I checked out the reviews and the study questions. Got more of a chuckle from them then from the book. It's obvious to me that literary novels are not (cliche ahead) my cup of tea. Curses, I may have to quit the book group. I'll miss our delicious lunches.

This book is a very sad and funny depiction of a conundrum that people face. Some people have no idea who they are and don't know what to do with themselves. They enjoy freedom, but do not know how to interact with others in a meaningful way. Others have a very strong identity that frames their response to the human condition and gives them a medium by which they can connect with others. And while this is a blessing, this identity comes with historical baggage that can at times, prove lethal or at least a threat to their ability to flourish.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Finkler Question 6 mars 2013
Par Arlyne J Lepie - Publié sur

I particularly liked the language that Howard Jacobson used in the book. I found his sense of humor to be incredible. However, it does help if you are Jewish with some background. This enhances your ability to appreciate how over the top some of his things were, especially as regards the area of circumcision. The main character is juxtaposed with two Jewish chaps that he attempts to understand as "Finklers" or in relationship to their particular Jewishness or lack of it. The author presents all sides of these male figures and their sexual appetites. The further you get into the novel, the more it grows on you. Just remember to think in terms of "tongue and cheek" as you attempt to master the craziness that transpires in the lives of the characters.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Really? The Man Booker? 8 novembre 2010
Par Joseph Landes - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I admit that I have never read anything else by Jacobson and in fact I am glad I did read this. However, given the impressive list of books short-listed for the Man Booker this year, I was somewhat surprised that The Finkler Question emerged victorious.

There were several memorable scenes and quotes--some of which as a practiciting Jew hit home hard. The notion of having to openly express your condemnation of the Holocaust at every moment possible makes you step back and think for a moment-"Should I be more proactive in seeking out opportunities to do this?" The reader will likewis ebe amused with the almost constant virility of the geriatric cast of characters; giving hope to us "youngsters" that all is not lost as we age.

The Libor character was often frustrating with Treslove being more entertaining--likely the intent of the author. Overall a good read.
