about

Écrivain alcoolique, grand amateur de femmes, Charles Bukowski a tracé son propre portrait à travers le personnage principal de son livre intitulé Women. Henri Chinaski, poète en vogue, crie son mal de vivre dans ce récit où les femmes défilent comme des véritables créatures imaginées par le cinéaste italien Fellini. Mots orduriers, ivresse de la débauche sexuelle composent un récit choc comme un désir sans cesse renaissant de tendresse et de sexe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whilst it can be tedious at times, nevertheless a great read. This may not be Bukowski's best effort (I appreciate his poetry more so than his prose), yet if one sticks with the book, it does have its shares of rewards (including the ending, which, like most of Bukowski's novels, brings about a great share of satisfaction). Not perfect by any measure, but nothing to discard either.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Raw yet repetitive This book gives a rare insight into the twisted mind of Charles Bukowski. The first 1/3 of the book is a page turner as you want to find out more about Henry. However, the endless stream of women quickly falls into repetition.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Interesting at first, but soon becomes repetitive Written in first-person, Women by Charles Bukowski starts off interest, but soon you realise that that the protagonist's life consists of two main things: drinking and women. After that, it is noticeable that the entire novel is based on those two things. The beginning is interesting, but about more than two-thirds of the novel is uninteresting, and I was hoping that the story would end. If you have read Post Office before reading Women, then you will not find the humour greatly amusing. You will find the protagonist unchanging, and the story repetitive because of the many women that the protagonist deals with. The protagonist, Henry Chinaski, a recluse, drinks all day long and somehow or another, even though he is his fifties, he ends up with a lot of women, most of which admire his writing. Henry has a problem, however, that he cannot settle for just one woman. Thus, you will notice that there are many different women involved throughout the novel, some of which make one appearance, while others make a few. Henry cannot stay sober, so he drinks all day long. He cannot stay faithful to one woman at a time, so he sleeps with many different women, and causes himself problems. Women is written as though it was an autobiography, which I believe it is. The protagonist, Henry Chinaski, was born in 1920 and is German, which is the same as the author. Henry used to work at the post office, and now is a writer of poetry, novels, and short stories, which is exactly what the author did. Of course, when you are reading such works that are based on real life, you should not expect a proper plot or very much character development. There is just a trace of some development in Henry on the last few pages. All in all, I recommend reading either Post Office or Women, but not both. I greatly enjoyed Post Office better, and it was shorter too. 2/5
