"Winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2011Beginning with an unlikely stowaway's account of life on board Noah's Ark, A History of the World in 10 Chapters presents a surprising and subversive fictional-history of earth told from several kaleidoscopic perspectives. Noah disembarks from his ark but he and his Voyage are not forgotten- they are revisited in on other centuries and other climes - by a Victorian spinster mourning her father, by an American astronaut on an obsessive personal mission. We journey to the Titanic, to the Amazon, to the raft of the Medusa, and to an ecclesiastical court in medieval France where a bizarre case is about to begin... This is no ordinary history, but something stranger; a challenge and a delight for the reader's imagination. Ambitious yet accessible, witty and playfully serious, this is the work of a brilliant novelist."… (més)

This is a weird book for me. It came highly recommended, and I was excited to read it, but it took me a long time to get through what is a pretty short book. It's not history (though sometimes it's history-ish) and not always quite fiction. It's not quite a short story collection but also not quite a novel. The writing by and large isn't beautiful, but neither is it unbeautiful. It is I believe by design largely a book rooted in contradiction, which is likely part of why I'm unable to classify it in a straightforward way. It is certainly a book of ideas. I liked a lot of it and loved the last chapter. One day I'd like to read it again at a time when I'm less busy and can read it more closely over the course of two or three nights rather than scattered over several weeks. ( )

Well worth reading for the last chapter alone. ( )

Immediate irrevocable dislike. Despite the fact that I generally like his older books. Despite flicking through it and trying to start it somewhere other than the beginning. Then again, to be fair it's been quite a while since I read one AND liked it. Maybe I am simply no longer a Barnes reader. Whatever that is.

I have a small pile of books in a shelf in the kitchen. It's my 'to-get-rid-of' shelf. This book is now sitting on top of a particularly lacklustre vegetarian cookbook I picked up on general principles: there is always a recipe in a cookbook that makes it worthwhile, only to find my principle dashed. It's British. Why would I have had such expectations of a British vegetarian cookbook, I wonder? Unfortunately I've missed the Christmas book fair at our local church which would have been just the ticket for both of them.

These are grand words. We must make sure we deserve them. Listen to them again: 'I love you.' Subject, verb, object: the unadorned impregnable sentence. The subject is a short word, implying the self-effacement of the lover. The verb is longer but unambiguous, a demonstrative moment as the tongue flicks anxiously away from the palate to release the vowel. The object, like the subject, has no consonants, and is attained by pushing the lips forward as if for a kiss. 'I love you.' How serious, how weighted, how freighted it sounds.
Here the manuscript ... breaks off, without giving details of the annual penance ... It appears from the condition of the parchment that in the course of the last four and a half centuries it has been attacked, perhaps on more than one occasion, by some species of termite, which has devoured the closing words of the juge d'Eglise.
