    Imagine your heart is a sheet of paper and Mller's words, the needle ? and then, let the typewriter go berserk. Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang. The words hit you, one after another, and her ink doesn?t run dry. The angst, the rage, the lament, the despair takes on unstoppable...

    The killing fields and the wheatgrass, the children playing and the smell. The field has a sweet kind of stink, when you think about it GOD'S ACRE really ought to mean a wheat field. They say a good person is as good as a piece of bread, at least that's what the teachers teach the c...

    Perhaps I was expecting a bit much of this book in imagining it would touch my soul in a most profound and resonating way. See, The Fox Was Ever the Hunter is the story of a teacher's life (1) during the last few year's of Ceausescu's communist regime (2; 1980s - place and decade of my...

    i read this hot on the heels of The Land of Green Plums, which was written two years later, in 1994. Fox is being translated into english for the first time, by a different translator from the one who translated Plums. this makes it all the more striking that mller's language sounds,...

    I had recently moved to Europe in 1989 and was celebrating my first Christmas there when Ceausescu was killed. I was in Western Europe, and so watched from afar, but still, the mood was different than it was in the states, with seemingly daily revolutions somewhere in Eastern Europe. I...

    A Poet of Despair Looking back at my review the only other Herta Mller book I have read, The Land of Green Plums, I see that it made me resolve never to read anything by her again. But I had pretty much forgotten this when I saw The Fox? in the library; it was short, it looked a...

    Less a novel and more a very long prose poem, I can understand how some might love it. I?m not one of them but the final chapters gave me mixed feelings. Atmospherics and imagery about life behind the Iron Curtain dominate the story. It has promise. I get it. I just didn?t apprecia...

    I diligently read the first 180 pages trying to wait for it all to gel together, but it never did. It took 120 pages before I recognised anything from the blurb, which gives the impression that this is a story with a bit of a suspenseful mystery, however, the more important but very la...

    The books of Herta Muller always start like an opera of Janacek. We are in a village drama. We expect loves secret, with illegitimate births. But very early the tragedy is here. The tinman commits suicide by hanging. And then there is the underhand dictatorship. It penetrates everywher...

    I am reading all of Herta Muller's books that have been translated into English, given her status as a displaced German originally living in Romania and, frankly, also as a Nobel Prize winner. (Nobel Prize committee as reviewers of the first order.) Though fiction, Muller's books provi...

    This was an incredible semi-autobiographical book about a couple living in Romania under Ceausescu's totalitarian regime. There's lots to pick apart here and I can easily see why Mller won the Nobel Prize for her work. Longer review forthcoming once I've had more time to digest it. ...

    Oj oj oj, sprket! Jag hade undvikit Herta Mller fr att jag hade hrt att hon var "svr". Har inte haft mental energi fr ngon tung lsning p sistone, men det hr kan man ju drunkna i! Mllers poetiska anslag r s klockrent att det inte gr ngot om jag p flera si...

    This was the May June pick for the read around the world club that focuses on women authors from a different country every month. Herta Muller is one of the few women authors who has won the Nobel Prize for Literature so I was keen to try some of her work but I?m not sure that this w...

    A dramatic chronicle of the end of comunism in Romania, seen through the eyes of a young teacher in Timisoara. It took me a while to accomodate to the writer's stream-of-consciousness narrating style and to get used to the characters. But in the last half of the book I just couldn'...

    surely I am missing the point here as to why this book won the nobelprize for literature, but never has there been a book that I could connect with so little, that has such an unfavourable ration of story to babbles, and that is so unpleasant to read, as this one. It us a bit like a...

    Interesting story of life during the totalitarian reign of Nicolae Ceau?escu. I enjoyed the insight but found the novel a little descriptive for my liking and the characters a little flat ...

    Not much of a plot here despite the jacket note picking out what plot there was. That blurb had attracted me in the first place. The plot didn't actually begin until around page 111; why is a fox pelt in the heroine's home cut up little by little? A warning from the secret police? It i...

    "The Fox Was Ever the Hunter" follows several characters but mostly the main character is Adina, a woman who believes that the Romanian secret police are following her at the end of the totalitarian regime of Ceausescu. I was fascinated by this look at a history that I was not all that...

    A dramatic chronicle of the end of comunism in Romania, seen through the eyes of a young teacher in Timisoara. It took me a while to accomodate to the writer's stream-of-consciousness narrating style and to get used to the characters. But in the last half of the book I just couldn'...

    surely I am missing the point here as to why this book won the nobelprize for literature, but never has there been a book that I could connect with so little, that has such an unfavourable ration of story to babbles, and that is so unpleasant to read, as this one. It us a bit like a...

    Interesting story of life during the totalitarian reign of Nicolae Ceau?escu. I enjoyed the insight but found the novel a little descriptive for my liking and the characters a little flat ...

    Not much of a plot here despite the jacket note picking out what plot there was. That blurb had attracted me in the first place. The plot didn't actually begin until around page 111; why is a fox pelt in the heroine's home cut up little by little? A warning from the secret police? It i...

    "The Fox Was Ever the Hunter" follows several characters but mostly the main character is Adina, a woman who believes that the Romanian secret police are following her at the end of the totalitarian regime of Ceausescu. I was fascinated by this look at a history that I was not all that...

    1. I bought this first thousand of the first and small original Edition in pristine condition for a few Euros at my favorite used book store. For a Nobel price winner, Herta Mller certainly is not a collector's darling. 2. As with all her other books, 90% of the author's merit is ...

    Imagine your heart is a sheet of paper and Mller's words, the needle ? and then, let the typewriter go berserk. Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang. The words hit you, one after another, and her ink doesn?t run dry. The angst, the rage, the lament, the despair takes on unstoppable...

    The killing fields and the wheatgrass, the children playing and the smell. The field has a sweet kind of stink, when you think about it GOD'S ACRE really ought to mean a wheat field. They say a good person is as good as a piece of bread, at least that's what the teachers teach the c...

    Perhaps I was expecting a bit much of this book in imagining it would touch my soul in a most profound and resonating way. See, The Fox Was Ever the Hunter is the story of a teacher's life (1) during the last few year's of Ceausescu's communist regime (2; 1980s - place and decade of my...

    i read this hot on the heels of The Land of Green Plums, which was written two years later, in 1994. Fox is being translated into english for the first time, by a different translator from the one who translated Plums. this makes it all the more striking that mller's language sounds,...

    I had recently moved to Europe in 1989 and was celebrating my first Christmas there when Ceausescu was killed. I was in Western Europe, and so watched from afar, but still, the mood was different than it was in the states, with seemingly daily revolutions somewhere in Eastern Europe. I...

    Less a novel and more a very long prose poem, I can understand how some might love it. I?m not one of them but the final chapters gave me mixed feelings. Atmospherics and imagery about life behind the Iron Curtain dominate the story. It has promise. I get it. I just didn?t apprecia...

    The books of Herta Muller always start like an opera of Janacek. We are in a village drama. We expect loves secret, with illegitimate births. But very early the tragedy is here. The tinman commits suicide by hanging. And then there is the underhand dictatorship. It penetrates everywher...

    I had recently moved to Europe in 1989 and was celebrating my first Christmas there when Ceausescu was killed. I was in Western Europe, and so watched from afar, but still, the mood was different than it was in the states, with seemingly daily revolutions somewhere in Eastern Europe. I...

    The books of Herta Muller always start like an opera of Janacek. We are in a village drama. We expect loves secret, with illegitimate births. But very early the tragedy is here. The tinman commits suicide by hanging. And then there is the underhand dictatorship. It penetrates everywher...

    Imagine your heart is a sheet of paper and Mller's words, the needle ? and then, let the typewriter go berserk. Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang, Bang. The words hit you, one after another, and her ink doesn?t run dry. The angst, the rage, the lament, the despair takes on unstoppable...

    This was the May June pick for the read around the world club that focuses on women authors from a different country every month. Herta Muller is one of the few women authors who has won the Nobel Prize for Literature so I was keen to try some of her work but I?m not sure that this w...

    A dramatic chronicle of the end of comunism in Romania, seen through the eyes of a young teacher in Timisoara. It took me a while to accomodate to the writer's stream-of-consciousness narrating style and to get used to the characters. But in the last half of the book I just couldn'...

    surely I am missing the point here as to why this book won the nobelprize for literature, but never has there been a book that I could connect with so little, that has such an unfavourable ration of story to babbles, and that is so unpleasant to read, as this one. It us a bit like a...

    1. I bought this first thousand of the first and small original Edition in pristine condition for a few Euros at my favorite used book store. For a Nobel price winner, Herta Mller certainly is not a collector's darling. 2. As with all her other books, 90% of the author's merit is ...
