    1. msarki.tumblr/post/1491949Spending the summer here at my cabin in northern Michigan forces me to relax and accept waiting as an art form. For the last week I have agonized over my running out of available bandwidth, and needing my ATT monthly service to flip over so an additional 30 GB would be available to use for downloading this particular Greed book review podcast I have been wanting to hear. Greed was a very hard book to read and I wanted an intelligent perspective before setting down my ow [...]

    2. I guess the question one needs to ask is not, why Elfriede Jelinek doesn’t handle subjects other than emotional exploitation, male sexual violation and middle age loneliness, rather it should be how many writers are capable of handling these things like she does. A man made useless lake, the lake is cold, no aquatic animals live there, nothing grows apart from weeds, it gets a ripple sometimes like the times when a dead body is thrown, it can’t hold that for long either, it returns that body [...]

    3. In an attempt to read GREED, I discovered that I was not nearly gluttonous enough for this kind of punishment.

    4. When I was reading this, I got the impression that the narrator(s) was stuck in her living room on an overcast day, bitter, lonely and twitching the curtains, so it was interesting to learn that Jelinek is severely agoraphobic. The writing draws you in like that.She's a clever cynic, and I'm not sure there's enough about. Read this book and you fall straight into her fussy, angry prose, but it never feels off-putting, only honest. Everything is anxious, taut and paranoid.Um not sure what more I [...]

    5. This book is like white noise. I don't honestly know how I got through it. It's a good book to read if you want to appear to be doing something but are in fact thinking deeply about what you're going to have for dinner.

    6. lmao @ all these pussies in reviews below moanin & gripin about the book being too hard, El Friede goes APESHIT on tha page and has u spitting out teeth when you go read it at 8am on way to work. i think the longest paragraph stretches across 8 pages, its nuts. hell yea its all over the place and Bless This Mess, sarcastic and sneery and just hte right amount of mess. peep:Cell phone on, call out, horrors already prepared, packed, frozen, and discovered by two persons.The fawn spilled out of [...]

    7. Astonishing novel, though not at all an easy read. In terms of what the author self-mockingly calls "narrative debris" relatively little (definitely) happens, though quite a few more things besides might have happened - - - only we're not sure because the author doesn't quite make that clear! In fact she goes off at tangents more or less all of the time: the fact that people drive too fast, treat one another with contempt, pollute the environment, undermine mountains with mining activities causi [...]

    8. I tried to read Elfriede Jelinek's The Piano Teacher a few years ago but found it to be written in a cold, unforgiving style that I wasn't in the mood for at the time. I had considered trying it again for GLM IV but saw a copy of Greed in my local library and thought I'd give that a go instead.Greed centres around a country policeman, Kurt Janisch and the various women with whom he's having affairs with. The story as such is simple and the main details are disclosed early in the novel. Kurt Jani [...]

    9. Elfriede Jelinek won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2004, but I had never read her work before. One of her previous novels, The Piano Teacher, was apparently made into a film that won several prizes in Cannes in 2001, but I have never seen it. So I had little to prepare me for Greed, her latest work to be translated into English. But I did have some preparation: last year, as a bet, I read James Joyce’s Ulysses. There are many similarities. If you like complex, stream-of-consciousness liter [...]

    10. Da kann die Sprache noch so interessant sein (dazu später ausführlich mehr), „Gier“ interessiert den Leser nicht im geringsten: aufgrund von Jelineks Erzählstil schaffen es die 462 Seiten nicht, mehr als 5 oder 6 Ereignisse im Gesamten zu erzählen. Warum? Jelinek entscheidet sich in diesem Buch für einen sehr ausufernden, fortschwemmenden (um an das Hauptmotiv des Wassers anzuknüpfen, mit der Geschwindigkeit von 20 Knoten, haha!) – das Bezugsthema schwimmt fort, und das Bezugsobjekt [...]

    11. I decided rereading Greed, after being scandalized in a recent conversation by the comparison someone dared make between Jelinek and Herta Mueller. I read Jelinek years ago, and only in German, and I would be ready to give in this much: the English translation doesn’t do her justice (I remember as my one personal literary ambition starting to translate Die Liebhaberinnen into Romanian in 2005, only to be detoured from my project and immensely disappointed by the translation published only mont [...]

    12. An odd little novel, nowhere near as funny or as dark as Jelinek's The Piano Teacher. Instead, this is an almost pure stream of consciousness, set in the backwoods of Austria. The writing is indeed stunning, and it is decidedly sinister and effective-- I'll think twice about woodland sex in the future-- but it's difficult to say how much I truly "enjoyed" reading it. Worthwhile, but at times arduous, this is something that will appeal to the handful of others who like modernist literature-- and [...]

    13. Did not withstand my 50-page test to catch my interest. Perhaps many things were lost in the translation, but I'm confused why the author was awarded a Nobel Prize for Literature. Was the criteria to cram every known word in the dictionary into 330 pages? I gave up around the time she started to dissect why women write to inmates. Not impressed.

    14. Powerful, grim, beautiful, chilling novel-length prose poem. Jelinek has a lot to say, on a lot of subjects, and she goes about saying it in a striking and original style. Sui generis.

    15. Intolerable. I'm 50% in and I just don't think I can take another step. I've dropped better books then this after fewer pages many times.Much, maybe most, of this book is incomprehensible. The only spots of light are when the author herself admits what crap it is she is writing. She discusses her inability to keep her characters straight, her desire to tell us things without just saying them (she considers herself a failure and the work no longer art when she does finally spell out a plot point [...]

    16. Elfriede Jelinek's Greed is supposedly her most accessible work. At least, it says so on the blurb. If this is accessible, I don't know what her other novels are like. It completely defeated me. Jelinek's prose is dense, long (paragraphs extending for pages), frequently unpunctuated; it roars in places, quivers with ferocious disdain for its characters (many of whom are unnamed). Nominally, this is about a country policeman who wants to amass property and so seduces every middle-aged landowning [...]

    17. Well, I wish I could say I enjoyed reading this book, but I can't. I did find it bold, in a way, and certainly irreverent. If an author can be credited with courage for saying to hell with editing, then Jelinek is certainly courageous. All 300 pages runs as a kind of unstructured, repetitive, running mental commentary - the kind of thing, in short, that I wrote when I was an overconfident preteen who thought that editing was for people who couldn't write. That aspect made it not pleasurable to r [...]

    18. I'm always troubled when reviewing books that were written in another language, partly because you know something is lost in the translation, but you can also tell that something is lost in the cultural translation. This book had layers upon layers of nuance and depth, but like the lake holding the body of the dead girl, I had a hard time getting the meaning out. Jelinek takes the familiar story that could have been cribbed from any B movie where the cop is a killer and uses it to discourse on A [...]

    19. L'argomento del sesso violento ed abusato, espressione di possesso e sottomissione, è troppo ripetitivo, quasi ossessivo. Nel romanzo i protagonisti non hanno un nome proprio, sono la donna e l'uomo, a sottolineare il modello assoluto di un rapporto in cui la donna è usata e oppressa. Il linguaggio è esclusivamente metaforico, ed evoca una successioni di immagini spesso scontate. Se si trattasse di un racconto sarebbe veramente geniale ed efficace: in poche pagine la Jelinek riesce alla perfe [...]

    20. One of the most trying books I've ever read. Fascinating that despite the fact that most of the book tries to deconstruct what the reader wants from a narrative and thus also refuses to give it, it's such a relief when - at the end - the narrator allows for these wants. Such a tease! Jelinek proves I'm a pleb.
