Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. He had a very interesting life. I didn’t like him by reading it, but I did understand more about why he cut off his ear, and why he committed suicide.
He drank a lot, smoked a lot, hooked up with prostitutes, and lived off his brother –or others. He wasn’t even a very nice person from what I could tell. I felt sorry for Theo for loving him so much.
He might have lived a long, happy life. I enjoyed the part when Vincent was with the coal miners. I thought he did a lot of go It was OK.
Anhelo de vivir
I thought he did a lot of good then, or at least tried. He did have a vincsnt for life. It was more an obsession with whatever he did. I am not sure he would even be accepted by society today if he lived the way he did then.
A quanto pare il verdetto del cincent editore a cui Irving Stone propose il manoscritto di questo romanzo fu “A long, dull novel about an artist. Io mi sono sforzata, ma non riesco proprio a dargli torto. Le cose migliorano un po’ dal soggiorno a Parigi in avanti, ma che fatica. Ma il tormento esistenziale di un artista temo che abbia poco a che vedere con quello dell’annoiamento di un lettore.
Consigliato lz a chi vuole un gran bene a Vincent.
Irving Stone is a poor writer. The movie by the same name is even more ridiculous than the book, but enjoyable for it’s kitsch appeal.
I did learn some new things about Van Gogh, his life, painting, and his infamous ear mutilation. But it lacked the authenticity that Agony had. It makes for a very long book vincenr you start hating Van Gogh by the end of the Prologue!
Although, I am interested to read more from this author! But not another artist. I was really interested in Vincent Van Gogh’s life as a novel, but this was kind of heavy and slow and I’m not in the mood for it.
Little bit of difficulty getting through the book because of some pacing issues. Also the whole time I was reading it I questioned the authenticity of the things that happened in the book.
Didn’t really dig how the book was written in a form of a story, complete with full dialogue by the people in it No way to know how those conversations really went, right? I guess you just have to take it with a grain of salt and think of it as a fictional story based on the life of Van Gogh.
Constantly seco Little bit of difficulty getting through the book because of some pacing issues. Constantly second-guessing the author doesn’t really lead to a great reading experience. Who knows, maybe it all more or less happened like it is told here as the author claims. Maybe this is the only way to really write this kind of a story where the only source are the letters of Van Gogh. I’m looking forward to reading the collected letters of Vincent Van Gogh and see how I feel about this book afterwards.
Couldn’t hardly stand him in the middle, and felt so sad and sorry for him at the end. I think since I tend to be painfully practical, I have a hard time understanding people who act I impractically like letting his brother send him money to live on his entire life, because he couldn’t work because he just had to paint. I was so annoyed and wanted to yell at him to stop being to selfish and such a taker and just work for himself!
Especially since he’s not one of my favorite artists, it drove me crazy that he spent his whole life doing something that he was so passionate about, yet mediocre at. But hearing about how he was so tormented at the end, softened my heart to him.
I’m trying not to feel guilty giving a book like this the same rating I give a much lesser one, as I can’t even imagine all that went into its creation. But reading it was quite a bit of work.

The writing style is odd, sort of simplistic and choppy I felt removed from the characters, not really in the story. I already knew the basic outline of Vincent’s life, so maybe that was also part of the problem, no suspense or surprise, of course that isn’t the book’s fault. At any rate I finished it, but breathed a sigh of relief when it was done. Although this is a biography, it’s usually found under “fiction” in bookstores and libraries. This is because Stone had to take some poetic licence in order to make a coherent and interesting novel.
After the book ends, Stone has a section called “Notes”, where he admits to the reader that a couple of the scenes such as Van Gogh’s meeting with Paul Cezanne were clearly a product of his imagination.
Read “Lust for Life” with a large grain of salt and a book of Van Gogh’s artworks within reach. T Although this is a biography, it’s usually found under “fiction” in bookstores and libraries. This will help illustrate many of the great works of art described in the book. Everyone else seems to have loved this book, but I found it depressing.
He stressed me out. Maybe that’s just how he was, but it did not make for nice reading or any sort of character empathy. Also, the writing felt overwrought and heavy-handed. And what do we have to show for it? Few authors have this sort of impact. Having little knowledge of this artist, I was not prepared for the plot of this biography. I do not tend to like his art and knowing more about his life led me to believe that he had a wasted life.
He could not seem to love those that loved him and took advantage of his dear brother and the women who loved him. He must truly have been mentally ill–a tip to understanding his art.
If my memory serves, it was more novel than biography; however, the use of letters gives some basis in factif not interpreted too broadly. It was ok, only read half of the book. Simplistically written book about an extremely complex artist. I wasn’t the biggest fan of this book, but I think it was more because Van Gough pissed me off than that the author was not engaging.
The author did a nice job considering what he was going off of. Interesting bio fiction of Vincent Van Gogh. I don’t know how true it is, but it’s a good read anyway. I read dear Theo at the same time and perhaps it colored my view of this fictional interpretation of Van Gogh’s life.

When at home, Stone relied upon the research facilities and expertise made available to him by Esther Euler InStone received his bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Berkeley.
When at home, Stone relied upon the research facilities and expertise made available to him by Esther Euler, head research librarian of the University of California at Los Angeles, to whom he dedicated and thanked, in addition to many others, in several of his works. Stone enjoyed a long marriage to his wife and editor on many of his works, Jean Stone. The Stones lived primarily in Los Angeles, California.
During their lifetime, Stone and his wife funded a foundation to support charitable causes they believed in. Stone’s main source for Lust for Life, as noted in the afterword, were Van Gogh’s letters to his brother Theo.
It seems probable that Vincent’s letters to and from his own brother Theo provided a foundation for Adversary in the House.
