mobi Å Goodbye to Berlin ´ Christopher Isherwood

I Globul de Aur în Berlinul interbelic un oraş decadent plin de cabarete şi cafenele un oraş grotesc populat de păsări de noapte un oraş al m I believe at one point this novel was going to be called Miserable Mopey English Sod has Absolutely No Fun in Berlin which would have left the reader in no doubt I am not so silly as to have expected Two Ladies or The Gorilla Song in Goodbye to Berlin as I have discovered since I read Oliver Twist that sometimes they make up songs and add them randomly into the story when they film these books But I did expect to be reading about Sally Bowles and her exploits at the Kit Kat Club – after all in Dickens Fagin doesn’t sing You’ve Got to Pick a Pocket or Two but he is there for the duration so what a disappointment when Sally turns up only for 66 pages and it’s just kind of mentioned that she’s a got a 2 week gig as a nightclub singer and there’s no Kit Kat Club at all so no outrageous MC and no camp drag acts and after 66 pages no Sally Bowles And while she’s around all she does is irritate by moaning about how she’s always spending too much time with the wrong gentlemen and drinking prairie oysters which Isherwood mentions like a million times Right at the end he trawls around a few Berlin night spots and one gay bar is mentioned in one paragraph and that I guess paragraph was pounced upon by the scriptwriters as their excuse to invent the Kit Kat Club Nothing happens in this novel because it’s a thinly fictionalised diary and not that fictionalised either because he gives his own character the name Christopher Isherwood which is a bit of a give away So we just get a dreary succession of Berlin characters who are kind of there for a bit and then not there just like people are in life It’s all a bit bleurhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhWhen this was turned into a play it was re titled I Am a Camera and a critic came up with a great one line review Me no Leica which is one of two one line reviews I can remember the other being of Pink Floyd's movie The Wall All in all it's just another flick to appal Oh well What use is sitting alone in your roomReading Goodbye to Berlin Life is a cabaret old chumSo sling it and let’s get a drink

book Goodbye to Berlin

Goodbye to BerlinAgnaţilor şi al lumii interlope un oraş plin de pericole unde ameninţarea tăcută a nazismului se va transforma curând într o realitate atroc This was not uite what I expected and I wish I had ended up liking it than I did The famous sentence from the first page is “I am a camera with its shutter open uite passive recording not thinking Christopher Isherwood created the novel out of his diaries he kept in Berlin in the early 1930s Towards the end Hitler was rising the city gradually changing and the writer decided to leave Berlin for good This is the section I really liked The rest excepting the character of Sally Bowles played by Liza Minelli in the movie Cabaret left me rather indifferent I acknowledge the writing honest and clear but the camera was way too passive and distant
