Jeannette Winterson
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Mount Desert, ME am 27.12.2008
Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

Nach wie vor mein Lieblingsbuch von J. Winterson ist "The Passion" und danach kommen "Sexing the Cherry" and "Oranges are not the Only Fruit". Mir gefällt der Erzählstil und die Fantasie in den Büchern von Winterson.

'Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit' is a touching story about Jeannette, a young woman who tries to arrange her sexual preference for women with her life inside a strict Christian sect. The book is written with Jeannette as a first person narrator and tells more or less her life from her early childhood to the day, she returns home, after she had been casted out for her deviant sexuality. The narration is especially close to the end laced with two different stories, that of Sir Parceval on his journey to find the Holy Grail and that of Winnet, a girl who has some dealings with a wizard of some sorts. The language is easily understood, nothing to fancy. But the more time passes within the narration, the more difficult gets it to follow all the things happening in Jeannette's life, especially since some parts are simply omitted. It was also rather hard to imagine when the story was supposed to take place - ultimately my bet may be some time after the second world war, maybe mid fifties, early sixties? And well, in my humble opinion, there was just too much religion and religious motivated restrictions. I know I wouldn't have stood this much.
