View all 4 comments. Reading for me is far more than a diversion from my life. Amazon Music Stream millions of songs.

I barely made 15 pages.

On almost every page men and women being caught up in superficial looks and pretentious appearances are shown as contagious diseases prevalent throughout our consumer-driven societies. But I wouldn’t go ahead and build on it if I were you.

She wants the young man Michael and not the rest of what comes with him. I’m still willing to give Jelinek, and even this book, another chance — I do like hateful writers and I do tend to like Austrians, so this book goes back to my shelf instead of back to the book store. AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally. This novel makes me think.

Jelinek has created a powerful and ddeseo narrative voice which I believe only a woman is capable of having. Lust by Elfriede Jelinek.

Deseo / Desire

Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. You are wading into a dangerous water, you might end up despising everything in life and everybody in the world! Age is not kind, and life simply wears one out. You might, at most, smirk at the thought of castrating someone. Apr 09, Troy rated it liked it Shelves: In matters of sexual behaviors Jelinek goes well over the line in order to be herself appropriately absurd. She is anything but taciturn in her sometimes disgusting assaults so perversely avowed.

Deceit and covert affronts of power are expressly not my cup of tea. The protagonist is a elfrieede who gets sexuelly exploited in any way immaginable without the faintest hope for a happy ending.

Deseo : Elfriede Jelinek :

La mujer le llama. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Der Belohnung folgt Strafe, auf Strafe folgt Belohnung Gerti, his housewife, is sexually exploited by Hermann on daily basis. Gerti is not asked how she feels about the use Hermann puts her to.

Lust by Elfriede Jelinek

Si esta es la novela de una autora feminista, sobre una mujer abusada en una jeliek auto-represiva, no hay forma de que sea agradable al lector. Sometimes it’s ok, but the writing needs to blow me away — or at least be funny — in order to keep me turning the page. The sad thing is that is it amazingly relevant as the mind-sets described in the book are perfectly represented by Donald Trump, a view of sex as a right earned through money and power, as sex as a violent way to demonstrate power, and the capitalist system that cultivates those type of relationships.


Lo que nos cuenta. If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? Sep 12, Bob Lopez nelinek it really liked it. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. It’s easy to be tempted to think that the book is an absurd exaggeration, even misrepresentation of reality.

Uno de los momentos ascendentes de la novela, en que tal vez exista una salida positiva, es cuando Gerti se encuentra con ese otro hombre, el estudiante Michael. The relationships are all antagonistic and power-based. The language of porn, the story of modern slavery. Write a customer review.
