It's all in here: death, grief, pain, violence and most of all - memory
von Carolin am 13.10.2011
Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

It's a very poetic book, though very depressive and sad at the same time. Max, who lost his wive a short time ago, decides to go back to the summer holiday town of his childhood, where he rents a room in the house in which his first love(s) lived.

Max, who lost his wive a short time ago, decides to go back to the summer holiday town of his childhood, where he rents a room in the house in which his first love(s) lived. He tries to get over his wive's death while he remembers the old time. USA Today says about The Sea that it's a "meditation on mortality, grief, death, childhood and memory..." and I agree with that. It gives an idea about the whole book, though I would definitely add violence and cruelty, which are in my opinion two main themes of the story. Violence and cruelty in Max' life, in his love, in his lovers but also violence against animals and other kids and of course the cruelty of diseases as well as of memories. The author uses a very poetic style, as I already mentioned above, which is expressed by lots of wonderful stylistic elements. And he also uses very detailed descriptions and down to the last tiny bit written down thoughts, which was sometimes helpful to understand Max but sometimes it was all too much. I didn't like the hypochondrical thoughts, that came up from time to time. And there were some other memories I would have preferred not to read about...but well. It's a difficult book, difficult in many ways, but the most difficult thing for me now is to tell if I liked it or not. And I simply can't :) After reading the whole 195 pages I still don't know. Maybe it's like a piece of art: Sometimes you like it, sometimes you hate it and sometimes you just don't know.
