In a barracks on an abandoned military base, miles from the nearest road, Thomas watches as the man he has brought wakes up. Kev, a NASA astronaut, doesn't recognize his captor, though Thomas remembers him. Kev cries for help. He pulls at his chain. But the ocean is close by, and nobody can hear him over the waves and wind. Thomas apologizes. He didn't want to have to resort to this. But they really needed to have a conversation, and Kev didn't answer his messages. And now, if Kev can just stop yelling, Thomas has a few questions.… (mere)

A friend recommended the audio version of this book but I got the print version. I liked it a lot even in print. It's serious, angry, and funny (with a touch of what's good in George Saunders here and there, I think), and it resonated on a number of frequencies for me. It's also a quick read, one that I could imagine going back to sometime between other books. ( )

I was going to rate this a 4 but that ending was ridiculous.

The entire story was written in dialog where the protagonist is speaking either to those people he's seeking answers from or to himself while working things out. This format, albeit a little unusual, really works well as an audiobook. If you've ever listened to a "full cast audio" it was very similar to that format.

I was absolutely captivated by this story from the very beginning. I kept thinking that I really need to read some more of this author's books- --but then that ending; abrupt and without anything resembling resolution. It just .... stopped. That is one of my BIGGEST pet peeves.

Still, fascinating story & brilliant audio narration ( )

Dun boekje dat je in een mum van tijd uit hebt. Hoofdstukken hebben titels als Gebouw 55, Gebouw 52. De gebouwen staan op een verlaten militaire basis. In gebouw 52 houdt de hoofdpersoon Thomas een man gevangen; Kev, een astronaut. Thomas schijnt Kev te kennen van vroeger, maar Kev herinnert zich Thomas geheel niet. Thomas vuurt een aantal vragen op Kev af; hij wil antwoorden. Met elk hoofdstuk komen we een stukje meer van Thomas te weten.
Helaas blijft aan het eind ook veel onbeantwoord.... ( )

great writing when the author can make you empathize with a kidnapper - a sign of the times for sure when the world is such a mess and so many with no sense of purpose or community... ( )

This book is political only in the degraded way that cable news is political — it’s uninterested in the nuances of policy because it’s already certain of which side it’s on. In that way, it’s a fitting document of our current level of political discourse. If I want certainty these days, there are plenty of pundits willing to sell it to me. I turn to literature, though, because when done right it provides something much more honest.

Hoewel het thema van de gekwelde ziel die de wereld ter verantwoording roept interessant genoeg is, heeft dat in Uw vaderen, waar zijn zij? En de profeten, leven zij voor eeuwig? niet tot een boeiende roman geleid. De halfhartige pogingen tot discussie over maatschappelijke onderwerpen komen nooit van de grond. Thema's als politiek cynisme en de afwezigheid van vaderfiguren, ze worden even aangestipt en verdampen weer. Het schematische boek maakt zijn pretentieuze titel niet waar.

Eggers wil ideeën kwijt en hij zoekt daar deze keer de vorm van de dialoog voor. Hij wil de lezer confronteren, deze keer door met ze als het ware in gesprek te gaan.
Het boek is op veel vlakken mislukt omdat het een ideeënroman is die soms schuurt tegen de wetten van literatuur. Maar liever een boek dat niet helemaal geslaagd is maar waarvan de auteur wel risico’s neemt dan zo’n perfect kloppende roman waarbij alle eindjes aan elkaar geknoopt worden.
