Doc You Gotta Have Balls: A Novel This book wandered around, sat down, had a cuppa, maybe a few bolls and wandered off again. Still not sure what the story was, but it certainly took me along for the ride. Other friends of mine who can't bother with a book that doesn't go anywhere would have given up before the girls even arrived in town. I stuck around though, even if just for the chance to wonder if the bolls cafe exists ......

Bestseller Ebook You Gotta Have Balls: A Novel Chuzpe steht u. a. für das Wort Dreistigkeit und das beschreibt die Handlung in einem Wort echt perfekt. Denn es gibt viele winzig kleine bis hin zu mega großen Dreistigkeiten, die Ruth ihrem siebenundachtzigjährigen Vater Edek durchgehen lässt. Das klingt schlimmer als es tatsächlich ist, denn Ruth liebt ihren Vater abgöttisch und keiner nimmt ihm im Grunde irgendetwas übel. Er ist ein sehr herzlicher Mensch und hat in seinem Leben viel durchmachen müssen. Edek hat als Jude den Holocaust überlebt. Seine Frau, Ruth’s Mutter, ist vor Jahren verstorben. Deshalb kümmert sich Ruth mehr und mehr um Edek. Er lebt inzwischen in der Stadt und arbeitet in ihrer Firma in der “Vorwärtsabteilung” – welche als eine Art Beschäftigung für ihn gedacht war, jedoch übt er diese Tätigkeit mit einer herrlichen Überzeugung und voller Engagement aus. Als die beiden nach Polen reisen, um sich die Gedenkstätte Auschwitz anzusehen und Vergangenes zu bewältigen, lernen sie zwei polnische Damen kennen. Von da an steht Ruth’s achso gutbürgerliches Leben auf dem Kopf: Ihr Vater will’s nochmal wissen. Frisch verliebt und voller Tatendrang stürzt er sich in sein neues Leben und baut ein “Klops-Imperium” auf.Noch nie habe ich bisher bei einem Hörbuch so viele Tränen gelacht & gleichzeitig Heißhunger verspürt: “Klops braucht der Mensch!”Fazit: Chuzpe ist ein wortwitziges und sehr unterhaltsames Hörbuch, bei dem man an der einen oder anderen Stelle in schallendes Gelächter ausbrechen kann. Hier einige grandioses Beispiele:1) “Ruthy, Ruthy, reg dich runter”, ein herrlicher Satz von Edek.2) Edek schickte seiner Tochter ein Paket mit 120!!! Klopapierrollen und begründete die absurt hohe Anzahl folgender Maßen: “Weil jedermann kann brauchen Klopapier … dieses Klopapier ist nicht von dieser Welt. … Es ist nicht so leicht zu finden, ein Klopapier wie dieses. Wenn du würdest suchen ein Klopapier was hat solche Linien, du würdest laufen von Bonzen bis zu Latex.” - Edek meinte natürlich die Redensart “Von Pontius zu Pilatus laufen”. :-)3) Snoby-Snoby-Restaurants4) “Etwas Klops braucht der Mensch” = “Etwas Grips braucht der Mensch”

  2. This book wandered around, sat down, had a cuppa, maybe a few bolls and wandered off again Still not sure what the story was, but it certainly took me along for the ride Other friends of mine who can t bother with a book that doesn t go anywhere would have given up before the girls even arrived in town I stuck around though, even if just for the chance to wonder if the bolls cafe exists


  3. Lily Brett, I bought this book thinking it would be a follow up on Too Many Men Seriously, what were you thinking This novel has the same characters, but suddenly they are living in an alternate reality There are references made to many events from the previous book but the timelines are wrong Suddenly this woman has 2 grown up children and the relationship that she had with her most recent ex partner which was so poignant in the last book, never happened This was a frustrating experience a rath [...]


  4. I really didn t enjoy this book I felt the author was tring to make some big life points about issues facing women mid life but it all went nowhere I found the acccent of the father really annoying and what was the point of her husband being away in Australia and what happened to the women s group she never really formed and the constant references to Zofia s breasts served what narrative purpose


  5. I laughed and I laughed and I laughed What else can I say Food, Manhattan, a neurotic Jewish daughter, a fun loving Jewish father, and some busty and lusty Polish women makes for one good read.


  6. Cute I picked it because of the title, as I often do There s a guy in it whose second language is English The accent is portrayed well in the writing, but that part gets annoying.


  7. Ein tolles, ber hrendes Buch ber M nner und Frauen, ber Sprache, Essen, ber die Nachkommen von Holocaust berlebenden und ber einen ganz besonderen, lebenslustigen Holocaust berlebenden Ich bin froh, die Autorin f r mich entdeckt zu haben und es macht mich gl cklich zu wissen, dass es solch berw ltigende Menschen wie Edek tats chlich gibt.



  8. I was sad when I had finished Lily Brett s You gotta have balls, it was a wonderful look at life and family As for the introspection and anxiety I felt as if Lily had been spying on me and my friends, and we are Australian women raised as Christians.It was all a bit larger than life, but then so is life Some reviewers said nothing much happens well that is lifelike too lots happen in a nothing happens way Still, I adore Anita Brookner s books, and she is the queen of the long lonely Sunday after [...]


  9. I read it for a book club, otherwise I would have stopped after about 30 pages.The main character Ruth is a very neurotic person that constantly worries about everything She talks a few times about trying to change, but never really does The novel ends appruptly with her still being worried her 87 yo father is getting married taking acid reflux tablets.I didn t care for any other of the characters either At least the kids of Ruth seemed somewhat normal Also her husband s name is Garth Ruth and G [...]


  10. Not really anything like Too Many Men, this was much lighter and fairly predictable Lily Brett spends a lot of time taling about words and word association, which gets a bit monotonous Not a lot really happened in the story well not a lot of much substance I waited to see if there was going to be anything about her mother s lost son, and the adopted boy spoken about in Too Many Men, but there was nothing further added about this in this book.Ruth s father has come to live in NY, and after drivi [...]


  11. Witzig, ein bissle skuril und Edec oder wie immer der sich schreibt muss man einfach lieben Reg Dich runter werde ich in meinen eigenen Sprachgebrauch aufnehmen, glaub ich Und auch, wenn die Story vielleicht ein bissle arg Fried Freude Fleischkl sschen ist, war es doch ein echter H rgenuss sehr gut gelesen auch Jemand, der New York gut kennt und mag, h tte wahrscheinlich noch mehr Freude an dem Buch.


  12. I m not often really disappointed with a book, but I was with this one I was looking forward to a great read but the dialogue did my head in Yes it s probably meant to be written in an ethnic, NY way, but for me the strange overuse of particular words spoken by the father really didn t make sense I just couldn t get past this grating factor and I tried, I read a quarter of the book before finally succumbing to frustration and putting it down.


  13. Picked this up for 4 at a Rotary store My first foray into life in Lily Brett land And I loved it Set in New York and with plenty of food references which appeals to me The neurotic main character is well neurotic and not that likeable I thought but the other characters especially Edek are well drawn and interesting I will be searching out Brett.


  14. Funny but insightful as well Daughter, Ruthie is 54 when her father, 87 decides to open up a balls restaurant with two women 67 69 from Poland The trios thought process and resulting restaurant are not what the daughter thinks is best but she lets them try You Gotta Have Balls in ways than one as you will see when you read this book.


  15. A joyous book filled with vivid, larger than life characters and the most deliciously imagined meatball meals The contrast with the rigid, controlling life of the narrator is a nice, edgy tension through the book.


  16. Got this free when I bought another book by the same author second hand The story was nice, it s just not really my thing Maybe it s because I m considerably younger than the protagonist and struggles to relate to them I dunno.


  17. Got it from a friend who exactle knew I would love it It is so funny and sometimes witty I would not have bought it because of the title sounds so easy reading but the German title is Chuzpe , what I prefer.


  18. Kurzweiliges Buch Etwas sinnlos, okay, etwas sehr sinnlos Ich habe st ndig darauf gewartet, dass etwas passiert vergeblich Wieso das zum Welttag des Buches 2012 ausgew hlt wurde, entzieht sich meinem Verst ndnis.


  19. I picked this up because of the title, and found myself quickly immersed in Ruthies world I enjoyed the trials and tribulations of Ruthie in the dealings with her father and his friends





  20. Very neurotic but funny I have to say I read it right through the recipes included at the end How could I not I loved it Not a genius book, but a great way to waste the day.
