"From internationally bestselling author Benedict Wells, a sweeping, heartbreaking novel of friendship, memory, and the lives we never get to live "[D]azzling storytelling ... The End of Loneliness is both affecting and accomplished -- and eternal."--John Irving At eleven years old, Jules Moreau loses his parents in a tragic accident, and in an instant, his childhood is shattered. Leaving a comfortable home in Munich and holidays in the south of France far behind, he and his siblings, Marty and Liz, are enrolled in a bleak boarding school, where the trio begin to lose each other, as well as themselves. Marty throws himself into academic life; Liz is drawn to dark forms of escapism; and Jules, though once vivacious and fearless, turns inward, becoming a ghost of his former self ... until he meets Alva. Shy, intelligent, and enigmatic, and concealing a dark childhood of her own, Alva pulls Jules out of his shell and the two bond over books and writing, always with an unspoken understanding of the other's pain. Eight years later, at the precipice of their friendship becoming more, Alva abruptly turns her back, and the two leave school on separate paths. As they enter adulthood, Jules, Marty, and Liz, still strangers to one another, struggle to contend with who they are becoming. Jules is adrift, growing into a directionless young man, anchored only by two desires: to be a writer, and to have Alva back in his life. It isn't until Liz hits rock bottom that the three siblings finally find their footing as a family, and Jules finds the nerve to reach out to Alva -- fifteen years after they last spoke. Invited by Alva to join her and her husband, an esteemed author, at their home in Switzerland, Jules finds his way back to his own writing, and to his closest friend. As life begins to fall into place, just as it seems that they can make amends for time wasted, the past catches up with them, and fate -- or chance -- once again intervenes. A kaleidoscopic and heartfelt family saga, as well as a deeply felt meditation on the power of memory, The End of Loneliness explores the invisible forces and currents that can change our lives in an instant, and asks us all to consider, If you spend all your life running in the wrong direction, could it be the right one after all?"-- "A kaleidoscopic and heartfelt family saga, as well as a deeply felt meditation on the power of memory, The End of Loneliness explores the invisible forces and currents that can change our lives in an instant, and asks us all to consider, If you spend all your life running in the wrong direction, could it be the right one after all?"--… (mais)

Sehr viel Gutes hatte ich über dieses Buch und auch den Autor gehört. Endlich habe ich es gelesen. Bzw. gehört. Als mein erstes Buch des neuen Jahres 2019. Es war ein gutes Buch, aber kein überragendes. Vielleicht waren auch meine Erwartungen ein klein wenig zu hoch. Wie auch immer. Es geht um Jules, der eines Tages nach einem Motorradunfall im Krankenhaus aufwacht. Langsam kommt die Erinnerung zurück, wie es dazu kam. Im Grunde bereits in der Kindheit.
Wir erfahren in Rückblicken die Geschichte von Jules und seiner Familie, beginnen damit in den 1980er Jahren. Die Eltern sterben, als die Kinder (zwei Jungs, ein Mädchen) noch klein sind. Dieses Erlebnis verändert jeden der Geschwister auf seine Weise. Vor allem Jules scheint nicht so recht einen Platz im Leben zu finden. Hat Schuldgefühle. Trifft falsche Entscheidungen. Und dann ist da noch seine Mitschülerin Alva. Beste Freundin? Große Liebe? Nur mysteriöse Weggefährtin?
Mich hat der Roman in vielen Teilen sehr berührt, aber in letzter Konsequenz nicht vollständig überzeugt. Er schien mir irgendwie ein wenig "zerpflückt" manchmal. Unfokussiert. Zudem wird so einiges angedeutet, von dem man hofft, dass man mehr darüber erfährt. Tut man aber nicht. Handlungsfäden, die interessant werden könnten, bleiben auf der Strecke. Nun muss ja nicht immer jeder lose Faden einer Geschichte auch am Ende verknüpft werden. Aber hier erschienen sie manchmal wie entweder vergessen oder dem Autor ist dazu nichts weiter eingefallen. Auch die Geschichte von Alwa hat mich ein wenig unbefriedigt zurückgelassen.
Und trotzdem fand ich das Buch insgesamt lesenswert und ich kann auch die von vielen negativen Bewertungen bemängelte arge Kitschigkeit oder Klischeehaftigkeit oder banale Sprache nicht so wirklich nachvollziehen. Ich habe für mich sogar einige Passagen gefunden, die ich mir - wäre es ein Hardcover gewesen - angestrichen oder gekenntzeichnet hätte, weil sie mich angesprochen haben. Allerdings erschließen sich mir persönlich auch die vielen Literaturauszeichnungen nicht, die der Roman erhalten hat. Für mich liegt er irgendwo zwischen 3.5 und 4 Sternen, also vergebe ich hier wohlgemeinte 4.
Noch kurz ein Wort zum Hörbuch: es wurde gelesen von Robert Stadlober, und dies in guter Manier. Seine Stimme passte m. E. sehr gut zu dem Ich-Erzähler Jules. Auch wenn er nicht jedem Charakter eine "eigene Stimme" verlieh, waren die einzelnen Personen doch gut voneinander zu unterscheiden. Ich mochte, dass er Toni, dem Freund der Geschwister, einen authentischen österreichischen Akzent verleihen konnte :-) ( )

Jules und seine beiden Geschwister wachsen behütet auf, bis ihre Eltern bei einem Unfall ums Leben kommen. Als Erwachsene glauben sie, diesen Schicksalsschlag überwunden zu haben. Doch dann holt sie die Vergangenheit wieder ein. Ein berührender Roman über das Überwinden von Verlust und Einsamkeit und über die Frage, was in einem Menschen unveränderlich ist. Und vor allem: eine große Liebesgeschichte. ( )
