Average rating 3. 62 ? 3, 236 ratings 137 reviews | Start your review of Windows on the World We know that none of the 1, 344 people trapped on the nineteen floors above survived. Obviously, this piece of information removes any element of suspense from this book. So much the better: this isn’t a thriller; it is simply an attempt?doomed, perhaps?to describe the indescribable. One of my reading resolutions for 2018 is to complete all of the past winners of the two premier prizes for literature in English translation - the Best Translated Book Award from the US and the Independent Foreign.. I couldn't decide on what star rating to give this. This is, at once, the most horribly self-indulgent book I've ever read, and one of the most insightful looks into today that I've ever seen. The author is an asshole, who blends himself with the fictional character constantly. But I've been reading a ton of French philosophy and perspectives on America recently. He's drawing a lot of it from that. This book is an attempt at the hyperreal novel. Where fiction becomes more real than reality. What.. Windows on the World is quite a depressing piece of French literature at times because of its subject matter, but it captures New York around the boom pre-9/11 perfectly, and its characters feel just like real people, making the book all the more powerful and memorable. This book introduced me to several issues I had never thought of regarding the WTC attack on 9/11. First off, I did not know that the people who were stuck in the floors above the level where the plane entered were stuck there for 2 hours before the tours collapsed. I also did not know there were no attempts to rescue them (thru helicopter, for example). So, this book deals with the sinister story of what might have happened to these people. And of course, this being Beigbeder, he also deals.. One of the disadvantages of preoccupying yourself seriously with writing is that the techniques start to shine through the art of the text, and you are constantly taken out of the fictional world the writer is trying to embed you in. I once heard a typographer complain that he could never watch period dramas because they always got the fonts wrong. I guess it's a little like that. Reading Murakami recently, arguably my favourite author once upon a time, I had a feeling of being cheated. I felt,.. A bit annoying in the beggining because of all the Anti-american talk, but after you pass that part, I found something incredible. A realistic technique of writing brought me tears. They call it fiction novel, but it's full of reality. They could've been saved and no one reacted. They were left to die in horrible torture and this most certainly is not fiction anymore. Everything is amazingly illustrated in words. If you want the book to have a bigger impact, i also suggest watching some.. It came back to me recently that I had read this book at some point in the last -- hmmm, I'm going to say 5-6 years; and it appears I never added or reviewed it here. I just read a bunch of others' reviews, and am reminded how the book slips back and forth between a modern-day examination of America by a Frenchman, and a fictionalized story of a father and his two sons who are visiting New York and having breakfast at the Windows on the World restaurant at the top of the North Tower when the.. Definitely a YES! I remember reading Beigbeder when I was a teen & when new dandyism was the actual trend in Paris… I was cut between hating his view on life -cynical, alcoholic, boho- and it's incredible quality on writing. But now, ten years later, it's a revelation: what kind of delicious character is that Beigbeder! He makes me think of Rousseau in the Confessions "total narcissism hidden on a sort of self indulgence, unbearable but so attractive! " I don't know if it was that book (the.. I read this book three years ago and all I remember is the description of a couple having sex while the building starts to collapse. Unnecessary provocation IMHO. Apparently this is the way a French person deals with trauma... Oh I'm sorry is it a stereotype? Well, kinda well deserved! Loved it. Beautiful and honest view of life. Amazing book. The best line: kids just want to eat, adults just want to fuck (but in spanish) Windows on the World Windows on the Plane. Windows on the Crash. Windows on the Smoke. BROKEN WINDOWS Read it in the original French a few years back in school. Hated it and loved it and back and forth as it went along. French author Frederic Beigbeder's novel "Windows on the World" has certainly garnered quite a wide range of reviews as posted on AmazonUSA. I came to this novel relatively late; six years after its initial publication in French and subsequent translation to English for sale in the US and the UK. I have never been able to read a work of fiction about the attacks of September 11th, 2001. I start them - and most are very good - but can never seem to stick with the book after the first chapter or.. This book was so eye opening for me. I know a lot about 9/11 I’ve seen so many documentaries on it, and yet I still learnt more throughout this book. The story goes into horrifying detail about what it would be like to be trapped in the tower, through the heat, the smells, the panic; it all felt so real. The words and phrases he uses to describe it really did make me feel like I had a sense of what it would be like to be trapped there. If you have been through a similar experience like this or.. This is quite possibly the most arrogant, pompous book I've ever read. How you can possibly make a book about the 9/11 attacks about you I have no idea but this book managed it and good god I did not enjoy it. There were parts that peaked my interest but they were overshadowed by the main character (who seems very much like the author himself) who I wanted to punch at almost ALL times. **SPOILERS** Also, the author somehow manages to put a chapter about him masturbating JUST before one of the.. I'm not sure what to do with this book. It's an uncomfortable read, but totally necessary. Not so much for the fictional story that unfolds inside-- the unlucky people trapped in the North Tower of the World Trade Center are basically stock characters: the self-absorbed, hedonistic divorced dad (of course he's a Texan! ) who is a shitty father to his two spoiled little hellions; the awful high-powered stock brokers carrying on an extra-marital affair. I never really bought any of them as.. While this book was pretty interesting, it wasn't as good as I'd hoped it'd be. It's my first read by Beigbeder, and I am a little dissapointed. What bothered me most was that Beigbeder felt the need to have two POVs in this book: one of an American, divorced fathern, Carhtex Yorston, who took his children up the Twin Towers at the moment of the attack, and then his own, one year later, in a restaurant in Paris. He must've felt like his own voice was a necessary addition to his book - it wasn't... "I do not know why I decided to write this book. Maybe because I saw no interest in writing about anything else. What else to write about? The only interesting subjects are the ones that are taboo. We have to write what is forbidden. '' Brutal, easy, hyperreal, and officially one of the best things I've read so far. I could go on about how great this novel is but, first of all, it's 9/11 and second, I guess that much can be deduced by the opening line: You know how it ends: everybody dies. If.. I read several reviews comparing this book to Ian McEwan's Saturday and Jonathan Safran Foer's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. All address September 11 or its aftermath in some way. I planned to read all three. I got through Windows and Saturday, but could not get past chapter one of Extremely Loud. This book was published in France well over a year before the translation was available in the U. S. It caused quite an uproar, undeservedly in my opinion. What I find most interesting about.. This was: a very good (but imperfect) book. It does some cool things with form- one chapter for every minute from when the plane hit the first tower to when it collapsed. It has a compelling critique of capitalism and US Imperialism that suddenly goes soft at the end - but perhaps that’s partly excused because of when it was published (relatively soon after the attacks)? The ending is bad and kind of hokey. Still, I highly recommend it. I'm still not quite sure what I think about this book. The chapters run minute by minute, and alternate between the thoughts of the gentleman who is trapped in the north tower with his young boys, and the thoughts of the Author.... I found this a bit distracting. That being said, this book managed to both break my heart, and make me chuckle. Not an easy feat considering the subject matter! I'm glad I read this, it's very different. The idea I liked and found in this book: the break in the life of generation. Generation of 50-a, 60-s, 80-s, 90-s. All of them have their own story. It form their personality, it makes them to be different. What is the break of 2000 generation? Does the collapse of American world contributed to the change of our picture of the world. I amn’t sure. less offended by the subject matter (recreating last hour of 9/11 atop WTC) or even the jokey tone - than the piss-poor quality of the prose itself this is a really shitty book, irrespective of its 'transgressive' nature more evidence that the degeneration of the Arts is pandemic (Windows won the Prix Interallie) This book is an unique addition to the dozens of things written on 9/11. It is different--I like it. It is written from two very different people who live countries apart and I think this is what makes it stand apart from other things I've read. It is interesting that the author puts in his own opinions here and there. Sometimes it's a bit unnecessary and a bit a whole, though, nice! One must be shameless to write such a book. Beigb

CBS Ten years - it's not long enough to heal the scars of that day. But it may be long enough to see how spirits so wounded on September 11 have begun to lift again. Martha Teichner reports: "It's much homier being down, you know, at this level, and really being able to see something as naturally beautiful as Central Park, " said Michael Lomonaco. The difference between the view out these windows and Windows on the World is telling. "At Windows, the view from the 107th floor was otherworldly, it was beyond description, " he said. Lomonaco was executive chef at Windows on the World, the restaurant that occupied the 106th and 107th floors of the North Tower of the World Trade Center - so high up that when it opened in 1976, a critic wrote,. "everything to hate and fear is invisible. " We know now, that wasn't true. Ten years after 9/11, are we all closer to the ground somehow, still seeking comfort? It took Lomonaco five years to find a reassuring space for his new restaurant, Porterhouse N. Y. "I wake up every day and I'm really grateful to be here, " he said, "And at the same time, I dedicate my restaurant work to my lost colleagues, because it was what they were doing on that day that I do today. " Lomonaco is alive because he decided not to go straight up to his office that morning. When the first plane hit, he was able to get out. In 2001, he told Teichner, "I saw a fireball. I'm completely sorry that I witnessed any of this. I mean to say that it was just a terrible thing to see. I immediately began to make a mental note of who I thought would be there - Who's there? Who's up there? " You can watch Martha Teichner's 2001 report by clicking on the video player below. It was a question that ricocheted around the city in the days after the attack - a question repeated until there were no words left, only names on lists... faces on walls smiling snapshot smiles. In 2001 we followed Elizabeth Ortiz, human resources director for Windows on the World, and her assistant as they searched. Until a few weeks ago, she'd never been back to the places she'd looked, those streets of sorrow. "I don't know that you can put into words how difficult it was, ' Ortiz said today. "I mean, there's hundreds, or, I mean, there's thousands of families that had to deal with it differently. But I think for us, there was a sense of responsibility of working with the families... you had to be strong for the families. But, you know, I couldn't be alone at night, because it was just too... scary, too sad. " Just struggling to comprehend that "missing" meant dead. Out of 450 Windows employees, 72 died. Two days after the attack, Eulogia Hernandez couldn't speak. Her husband Norberto was a pastry chef at Windows on the World. Family members talk about Norberto: "He called his sister at 9:00, 9:03, he said there was an explosion in the building in front of them. " Norberto Hernandez was from Puerto Rico. Banquet waiter Muhamed Saladeen Chowdhury was from Bangladesh. Windows employees came from more than 60 nations. The end of this terrible story would bring the beginning of another, better one: Almost exactly 48 hours after Chowdhury died, his wife Baraheen Ashrafi gave birth to the son he would never see, Farqad - the first of the post-9/11 babies. Michael Lomonaco couldn't get Farqad out of his mind, as he helped set up the Windows of Hope family relief fund. It raised $22 million to provide emergency assistance to the families of food service workers who died in the attack, and to educate their children through college. The fund pays Farqad Chowdhury's tuition at a private school in Oklahoma City. Baraheen Ashrafi moved nearby to be close to her sister. In 2004, she became a U. S. citizen. "It's my country now, " she told Teichner. "My kids born here, my husband, you know, his soul and his body's in here. So I started feeling love for staying in here. " © 2011 CBS Interactive Inc.
