Auch wenn sich seine pubertierende Tochter Becka immer mehr hinter ihrer Gitarre ihren Rastalocken und einem Polster überschüssiger Pfunde versteckt bleibt sie für ihn das schönste Mädchen auf der Welt Er liebt seine Familie sein Haus und seine Arbeit wie nichts sonst auf der Welt Und doch steht er eines Tages auf und geht fort Nicht weil er möchte sondern weil er muss Weil ihn nichts mehr halten kann Er macht sich auf den Weg hinaus ins Freie Doch es wird kein Aufbruch hin zu neuen Horizonten Es wird ein Abstieg in die Abgründe seines Ichs und so sehr seine Frau au. If you took the scenes from Forrest Gump where Tom Hanks runs across the country several times and mixed that with some sections of The Time Travelers Wife you d have an idea of what this book is likeTim Farnsworth is a successful lawyer and he lives with his wife Jane and their daughter Becka in upper middle class splendor Becka has some weight issues and general case of teenage angst but overall they re living the American dream However Tim has an odd problem He has twice endured periods of time when he compulsively walks When in the grips of one of these attacks Tim will just start walking and is unable to stop himself After the walks end he falls into a deep sleep no matter where he is This can be a tad dangerous if for example Tim happens to walk out into freezing temperatures and he isn t wearing his mittensThe walking compulsion had vanished before but it returns as the book begins Since they ve been through this twice Tim and Jane know that doctors and psychiatrists can t help Tim and efforts to drug or restrain him just make matters worse With almost no hope of recovery or answers Tim desperately tries to hang onto his job and Jane s tries to help as they both struggle to maintain some semblance of a life But the toll of dealing with Tim s condition is making life miserable for them and things are about to get worseThis was an interesting story but a very depressing read Tim and Jane are nice people who know they have it good and are grateful and content with their lives Reading about how this weird walking compulsion steals their happiness and normality is about as much fun as watching a sack full of puppies get drowned

Upgrading from 3 to 4 stars because for some reason I keep thinking about this book even though I read it like a year ago and because I fucking love the audacity of the opening sentenceWhat an odd bookThe first section really is magnificent instantly hooking you with descriptions of the bizarre illness alluded to in the title as well as vivid sketches of the sufferer s life at home and at work Some early office set scenes actually do offer an interesting echo with Ferris Then We Came to the End containing the book s sole nods toward humor although Ferris loses interest in the work thread pretty uickly a symptom of his surprising lack of focus in this novel All the pieces are in place for Ferris to pull off a wrenching tragedy As is my wont I was imagining the cinematic possibilities a man wakes up in an unfamiliar place alone and disoriented he shakes the sleep from his body and waits for his mind to follow suit takes out his phone and then we cut to the car ride home with his wife all tense silences and lens flares Later an unbroken shot of the man walking walking over bridges and along sides of highways walking and then stopping and then cut back to the wake call ride ritual The blinking editing rhythms plunging us into his vicious cycle of involuntary escape and shameful return If nothing else this first section could make a fine piece of elliptical filmmaking And of course it works on its own as a study of a family under catastrophic duress the wife and daughter just as compelling as the manAnd then shit gets weird In what I can only assume is a show of solidarity with his perambulatory protagonist Ferris ditches the sharp sense of purpose he had in the first section and starts wandering aimlessly in the narrative hinterlands Wife and daughter recede into the background plot elements introduced earlier fail to pay off even cursorily different thematicphilosophical hats are tried on none purchased Voice and tone become crushingly inconsistent It s established that the characters don t know what causes the man s condition but does Ferris know Did he have any sort of endgame or overarching design in mind It feels like he was just winging it But line by line the book remains fascinating and although the shift in conflict from external to internal cuts off too much of the reader s air supply it s an understandable choice and a gutsy one One thing Ferris doesn t lack is balls The Unnamed is a long way from the fully realized masterpiece that was Then We Came to the End but I still recommend it and I think it confirms that Ferris is a writer of conseuence and substance who could develop into one of our interesting prestige novelists Contrary to the Goodreaders disappointed over Ferris departure from comedy I applaud him for trying

Ch versucht ihm dabei beizustehen ist es am Ende doch ein Weg den er ganz alleine gehen mussGesellschaftsroman Eheroman Psychodrama »Ins Freie« ist ein ebenso beeindruckendes wie verstörendes Buch über die Zwänge der Gesellschaft und die apokalyptischen Kräfte in uns selbst Es ist ein Buch über eine dunkle Obsession die einen Menschen am Ende dazu bringt das zu zerstören was er liebt Es ist die bewegende Geschichte eines Paares das sein glückliches Leben als Selbstverständlichkeit betrachtet bis von einem Tag auf den anderen alles unwiederbringlich auseinanderbric. The Unnamed is a fascinating account of a man literally at war with himself a character torn between compulsion and resistance body and mind It is a complex and heartbreaking novel about the effects of disease both physical and psychological on a person s humanity and his relationship with others Joshua Ferris proves once again that he is a skilled and nuanced writer who posits thought provoking uestions without feeling the need to give tidy answers or even at times the semblance of a solution Now that I ve gotten the well deserved praise out of the way though I do have to say that the novel for all its strengths falls slightly short of both its promise and its premise My biggest problem with the book is its lack of narrative consistency The first parts of the book are brisk and multifaceted an amazing cross section of not only the main character and his illness but also of the world and people around him The latter part of the book is told as a meandering odyssey although this tortuous homecoming is beautifully reflective of the main character s illness it plays with time and narrative style in a way that feels contrary or at odds with the earlier parts of the novel Moreover there are a number of very interesting plot elements a murder case and a major character s struggles with alcoholism that are simply abandoned Again I don t necessarily want tidy endings for all plot points but they do need to seem purposeful rather than just reuisite inciting events or complications As a whole The Unnamed was a strange and compelling book that for me fell short of its promise

    Gah I hated this stupid book I knew I hated it after the first twenty pages and I only finished it out of spite I am a big enough person to admit that I was expecting to hate this as I always hate anything that's too hyped too anticipated too next big thing so obvs I may not have given it an honest chance but whatever It still was a weird uneven mostly bad book On the good side Gone was the gimmickry of Then

    Joshua Ferris’s The Unnamed is a purposeless relentlessly depressing book I get the sense Ferris was chugging balls out on the downer path because he didn’t want to minimize the darkness but I think he lost his way when he chose to focus nearly exclusively on the worst moments of strained marriages and mental illness Listen I’ve gone through dark stretches in my existence I imagine most of us have but not every

    Tim Farnsworth has a problem At times he is overwhelmed by an irresistable urge to walk Not just around the block a time or two but to the point of exhaustion regardless of the weather regardless of whatever else demands his time like his job as a lawyer his comfortable suburban home his family His wandering can go on for days at a time a sort of sober bender until he is felled by exhaustion His wife Jane manages as best she can helping hi

    If I could give this than five stars I would I don't think I've been this affected by a novel in years Above all it is a novel of great compassionThe premise seemed both abstract and far fetched a man is afflicted with a disease or a condition which causes him to walk suddenly unable to stop until he eventually drops from exhaustion But Joshua Ferris makes this than a conceptual conundrum He makes it the deta

    I listened to Joshua Ferris read this his second novel I hadn't read his first the lauded Then We Came to The End but I heard good things about this one And from the very first moments I loved it There's two things an author can do with his characters—one is to present every moment of their lives and try to make them round and three dimensional and all that crap; or present them in certain moments and allow the reader
