Dieser Roman erzählt von den zwei Westafrika Expeditionen des schottischen Entdeckers Mungo Park der sich um auf die Suche nach dem Niger macht. This is definitively Boyles best also first novel and it´s completely different than his other worksIn general Boyle is dark close to depressing and the jokes are the same good but uite kind of hardcore dark comedy style Water music is smooth funny clever and not in a 20th century setting as most of his other novels and I would be unable to say if it is the same author if I read this and one of his other novels after anotherIt criticizes colonialism racism white mans´ burden slavery and the mentality of the 18th century in a both funny and deep meaningful way and I guess Boyle could have reached like Matt Ruff and Christopher Moore much readers and fame if he would have stayed both funny and critical instead of becoming dark and critical Don´t get me wrong I like all of his works but they are really a downer and as seen in this work could be uppers insteadThe great social critiue he includes in his 20th century setting novels doesn´t get the appreciation it could have because nobody likes to be made sad and why he began writing like this especially with a background in creative writing makes no sense to meA wiki walk can be as refreshing to the mind as a walk through nature in this completely overrated real life outside books

Water MusicE beide Male in Begleitung eines ehemaligen Sklaven und Butlers Zugleich ist «Wassermusik» die Geschichte eines Londoner Trunkenbolds und Tric. Another one from Boyle that was immensely enjoyable funny witty bawdy and sometimes shocking Great writer This book was Boyle's first novel It's basically the story of Mungo Park the Scottish explorer who was the first European to see the Niger River in Africa During the first 34 of the novel the story switches from Mungo's adventures to the story of Ned Rise a thief scoundrel and all round con man in the filthy streets of late 18th century London Although I did really enjoy Mungo's adventures Ned Rise has to be one of Boyle's most unforgettable characters Just when he thinks he has the world by a string disaster always seems to hit but he somehow always lands on his feet he even survived his own hanging Boyle's use of the English language is a marvel to behold His vocabulary is never ending and his descriptive narrative is marvelous He can make you feel like you are experiencing a place by just talking about it For example his description of the streets of London during this time period makes you feel as if you are there At this time in history the streets of London were as foul feculent and disease ridden as a series of interconnected dunghills twice as dangerous as a battlefield and as infreuently maintained as the lower cells of an asylum dungeonThere was pigeonshit Mud coal dust ashes dead cats dogs rats scraps of cloth stained with excrement and worst of all open sewersGrim shopkeepers trudged out into the roadway to dump their chamberpots barmen limed the walls outside their establishments to deaden the reek of urine housekeepers flung buckets of nightsoil from second and third story windows not only was the pedestrian up to his ankles in human waste he also found himself dodging the airborne clods thrown up by the wheels of passing carriages All in all another highly entertaining story from Boyle High recommendation
