text ✓ Das Parfum Die Geschichte eines Mörders Ï Patrick Süskind

E gift an absolute sense of smell As a boy he lives to decipher the odors of Paris and apprentices himself to a prominent perfumer who teaches him the ancient art of mixing precious oils and herbs But Grenouille's genius is such that he is not satisfied to stop there and he becomes obsessed with capturing the smells o I want my last 2 weeks back I dove into this book expecting a hell of a lot than I dragged out of it From the very beginning I did not like the author's writing style and should have known then that this book just wouldn't be for meThis book is set in the mid 1700's France and centers around a horrid man who has no redeeming ualities other than the fact that he has likely the most perfect sense of smell in the history of mankind But he uses this skill for selfish and evil purposes and we get to come along for the story of his life if you could call it thatThe premise of the story seemed interesting enough and of course the title tells us that there is going to be murder so that always makes for interesting reading But I just found it to be extremely boring and tiresomeThe author obviously did his research relating to all things perfume the methods involved in it's creation both chemically and artistically and the importance of it's purpose in that point in history But he goes overboard with list after exhaustive list of ingredients or steps within a process or varieties to be found He can't help but describe every minute detail not just of perfume but of the landscape or the people I love descriptive writing I truly do but I do also like to have an exciting plot to keep me involved By the time he finished describing a scene I forgot why we were thereThis book lulled me to sleep and caused me to welcome distractions rather than turning the page so it took me a lot longer than a book of this length normally would I know that it is loved by many and was recommended to me by several whose opinions I value But this one just didn't cut it Even when the action picked up in the last 50 pages or so it became extremely bizarre and made me wonder what the heck the point was exactly

Das Parfum Die Geschichte eines MördersAn acclaimed bestseller and international sensation Patrick Suskind's classic novel provokes a terrifying examination of what happens when one man's indulgence in his greatest passion his sense of smell leads to murderIn the slums of eighteenth century France the infant Jean Baptiste Grenouille is born with one sublim “He possessed the power He held it in his hand A power stronger than the power of money or the power of terror or the power of death the invincible power to command the love of mankind There was only one thing that power could not do it could not make him able to smell himself” Perfume is a story about social isolation; it’s a story about not belonging in the world and the negative effects this can wrought on one’s mind It’s also a story about obsession a singular pursuit for perfection regardless of the costs Conseuences simply do not matter for Jean He is completely detached from reality; he lives in his own world of scent invisible to all others Murder means nothing to him because he does not fully understand what he is murdering He has no feelings He cannot comprehend what it is to snuff out a life because he is not truly alive himself He is dead inside and numb to all else in his differentness “He realized that all his life he had been a nobody to everyone What he now felt was the fear of his own oblivion It was as though he did not exist”“He had withdrawn solely for his own personal pleasure only to be near to himself No longer distracted by anything external he basked in his own existence and found it splendid”As such befalls misery for all those that meet him His talent is remarkable and his motivation when roused is unstoppable His singular pursuit for his goal is uncompromising and he will stop at nothing to achieve the most perfect of scents The secret ingredient he has been looking for comes his way and he cannot rest until he has it Innocence is a mighty hard thing to harvest though it is the missing piece he has been looking for; it will give his perfume the power to inspire love it will be irresistibleHowever as the tale of Icarus taught us those who fly too high will burn As such the ending of this is simply perfection The moment captures the heart of the book in one beautifully horrific frenzy of emotions and desire The delivery is masterful I knew it was coming I’d seen the film many years previously though I don’t think the film could every uite capture the intensity and euphoric nature of the situation The only reason I have not given this five stars is because I found it rambled a little in places I think the story could have been cut back and made tighter and effective though I loved the prose and the plot Jean makes for an interesting character study for sureYou can connect with me on social media via My Linktree
