Your eyes just keep getting drawn back to it. Charlotte Roche is playful, though. You are eating - seriously. For Roche's novel to work, we have to believe several things. Wetlands feels like a bit of a throwback to that to me. But there are so many other places to turn — luscious pictures, lascivious blogs, lewd classics.
Things have happened to my body and my soul that made me retreat so far up in myself I was not sure I was there any more and I have to look for external signs of my existence: Inher three brothers died in a car crash on the way to her wedding.
Roche left home in and founded with three female friends the garage rock group The Dubinskis. And if Helen is supposed to serve as a symbol of "taking back sexuality" and to bring women's body issues to the forefront, than I'm not buying it.
I'm shitting and pissing and greasy and weird and dreamy and there's blood and there's boils and I'm here! It's been a while since I've read anything I wanted to end so badly and I am surely not looking back. Rose Magee rated it really liked it Jun 19, Sure, it reads like a writing exercise.
Charlotte Roche Two-Book Collection: Wetlands and Wrecked
I'm going to take Philip Roth's Portnoy's Complaint off the bookshelf to remind myself that there is a proper way to combine smut, humour and making love to food.
Sep 12, Rhianon rated it really liked it. I can't say I liked this book, I can't even say I hated it.
Wetlands is set entirely in a hospital room, with wet,ands flashbacks. Trying to meet all your book preview and review needs.
Heres cheers to wetlanfs endings. We certainly have enough kinky filmmakers and visual artists — perhaps that's the problem: The hospital environment is a brilliant vehicle for debut novelist Charlotte Roche to show what it's like to be young and female and damaged, to be both pitiless and powerless and on display.
Startled by her request, he goes on to tell a friend of his, and then tells Helen that the friend called her an exhibitionist. But Helen doesn't just want to celebrate novel ways with boiled eggs.
If history has taught us anything, it's that no good can come of a foreigner trying to out-German the Germans. Wetlands has already sold over half-a- million copies in Germany, where the young Charlotte emigrated, and where she is a famous TV presenter. Oh, and Liz, I so agree about Sex and the Citywhich is so deeply conventional, but I hardly see it as the feminist endgame.
And suddenly all that cringe makes sense. I can only recommend this book to those with a strong constitution and possibly an even stronger stomach.
Feuchtgebiete by Charlotte Roche
This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Wetlands is deeply unerotic, but I do like what she's saying, however unsubtly, about the whitewashing of women's sexuality. It immediately became a literar. Roche left home in and founded with three female friends the garage rock group The Dubinskis.
Yes, things can get a little gross, but its not like the main character's behavior is completely unnatural. Not minelike a lion cub taking its first forays into game territory: Certainly it wouldn't have received the attention and the sales it's generating.
