شب مادر پنجمین تجربه ونه گات خوانیم بود. به خاطر فضای جنگ جهانی دومی که داره کمی یادآور @سلاخ خانه شماره پنج@ ه...داستان با همون طنز همیشگی و لحن سرخوشانه ونه گات روایت میشه ولی تو این کتاب، برخلاف سه اثر فیکشن قبلی که از ونه گات خوندم از نشانه های آخرالزمانی یا علمی تخیلی اثری نیست

داستان جالبی داره.مردی اصالتا امریکایی ولی بزرگ شده ی آلمان در طول جنگ جهانی دوم صدای رایش رو از طریق رادیو به مردم انتقال میده و با شهرت و محبوبیتی که نزد ملت آلمان کسب کرده ازطریق پیام ها و سخنرانی های شورانگیزش ، ملت رو برای شرکت و ادامه جنگ تحریک می کنه. اما کاری که در واقع در حال انجامش بوده جاسوسی برای امریکا و ارسال اطلاعات از طریق سرفه و عطسه و تغییر لحن و ...است. حال سال ها بعد از پایان جنگ، بی هویت و بی پشت و پناه در حالی که بخش عظیمی از زندگی، خوشی، کار، هنر و عشقش رو از دست داده، در یکی از زندان های اسرائیل منتظر محاکمه و مشغول نوشتن خاطراتشه...

پیام کتاب همون جمله ای که ونه گات در ابتدای کتاب و حتی قبل از شروع داستان صریح و مستقیم می نویسه: مراقب باشید که به چی تظاهر می کنید چون در واقع شما همون چیزی هستید که بهش تظاهر می کنید

سوال کتاب اینجاست: اخلاقیات و درستی و نادرستی اعمال ما رو کی مشخص می کنه؟ شخصیت اول قصه آدم خوبه س یا آدم بده؟

The thing I love best about Kurt Vonnegut is that he was both the ultimate cynic and the ultimate humanist. What better character for him to create to embody those views than a Nazi with good intentions?

Howard W. Campbell Jr. was an American citizen who grew up in Germany and became a prominent Nazi thanks to his virulent anti-Semitic propaganda. However, Howard had actually been recruited before the war began to be an American spy who provided vital intelligence to the Allies via codes hidden in his frequent radio broadcasts. Years after the war has ended, Howard recounts the story as he is being held in Israel awaiting trial for war crimes. As he explains what happened before, during and after the war Howard repeatedly touches on the unasked question that haunts his life: Does pretending to be evil in the service of a good cause still make you evil?

I had always felt alone in thinking that his was actually Vonnegut’s best book so I was happy to be validated by the comments of several other Goodreaders sharing the same thought.

Vonnegut’s gift was looking at the world with clear gaze and acknowledging that people were pretty much shit, but still having enough compassion and empathy to look for moments of dignity. He did it with that that unique bittersweet sense of humor that allowed him to write about the horrors of something like the Holocaust and give it a tone of a very wise man shaking his head with a bitter chuckle at a dark, sick joke.

Probably Vonnegut will never be one of my favourite writers. However, I must say that @Mother [email protected] is a good novel. Howard W. Campbell Junior is an American playwright emigrated to Germany of the Third Reich, become the symbol as well as the radio personality of Nazi propaganda. Campbell Junior brings us his memories from an Israeli jail, waiting to be tried for crimes against humanity.The tragicomic story that comes out gives us totally grotesque characters, motivated by the most diverse ideals. The personal reflection about the war by the author is interesting, and the protagonists mental paths that define the epilogue of the novel are interesting too.

Vote: 7.

Probabilmente Vonnegut non è e non sarà mai uno dei miei autori preferiti. Tuttavia devo ammettere che Madre Notte è un bel romanzo. Howard W. Campbell Junior, commediografo americano emigrato nella Germania del terzo Reich, simbolo nonché voce radiofonica della propaganda nazista, ci narra le sue memorie da un carcere israeliano, in attesa di essere processato per crimini contro lumanità. Il racconto tragicomico che ne viene fuori ci consegna personaggi decisamente grotteschi, mossi dagli ideali più disparati. La riflessione personale sulla guerra da parte dellautore è interessante, e interessanti sono i percorsi mentali del protagonista che definiscono lepilogo del romanzo.

Vastly underrated piece of black comedy, about a World War 2 double agent whose cover is a Nazi propagandist in the style of Lord Haw-Haw. Vonnegut says in the preface that this is the only one of his books where he knows what the moral is. You are what you pretend to be, so be careful about who you pretend to be. For my money, Vonneguts second best book, running Cats Cradle very close.

Its not just me - the great Doris Lessing also wrote once that she couldnt quite understand why this book wasnt more famous. Her speculation was that the literary world simply refuses to take anything seriously that is first published in paperback. Now that shes finally received the Nobel Prize, maybe people will listen more carefully :)
