Amok – Richard Bachman (Stephen King) (Buchrezension)

Charles Decker scheint auf den ersten Blick ein normaler Jugendlicher zu sein, weder besonders beliebt noch unbeliebt. Er versteht sich besser mit seiner Mutter, reiste aber auch schon mit seinem Vater auf Jagdausflüge. Er ist intelligent und hätte gute Zukunftsaussichten, wenn er nicht eines Tages in sein Klassenzimmer marschiert wäre, zwei Lehrer erschossen hätte und all seine Mitschüler als Geiseln nahm. Charles Decker läuft Amok.

In der heutigen Zeit muss man unweigerlich erstmal schlucken, wenn man dieses Thema irgendwo näher beleuchtet vorfindet, da Massaker, von Jugendlichen verübt, immer häufiger aufzutreten scheinen. Wenn ein Buch dann auch noch aus der Sicht des Täters geschrieben wird muss ein Autor schon großes Talent besitzen um dies nicht als Verherrlichung eines Massenmordes hinzustellen. Richard Bachman alias Stephen King hat dies allemal.

Charles kommt eines Tages an seine Grenzen und erschießt erst seine Lehrerin und dann kurz darauf auch noch einen weiteren Lehrkörper, der zufällig in die Szene hineinkommt. Seine Mitschüler als Geiseln nehmend beginnt im Klassenzimmer ein perfides Psychospiel, dass schon bald Bahnen nimmt, die man zu Beginn so nicht erwartet hätte. Mehr möchte ich zur Handlung auch nicht verraten, da ich sonst zuviel vorwegnehmen würde.

Das Buch ist in der Ich-Perspektive geschrieben, was mich hier erstaunlicherweise überhaupt nicht gestört hat. Im Gegenteil, man fühlt sich ziemlich schnell in Charles Decker hineinversetzt und beginnt ihn nach und nach zu verstehen. Zu keiner Zeit heißt man seine Taten gut, aber man versteht eben, warum es soweit gekommen ist.
Typisch für Kings Alter-Ego Bachman ist dies alles sehr hart, direkt und schonungslos beschrieben und man muss hin und wieder schon schlucken und bekommt Kost vorgesetzt, die zum Verdauen länger braucht als die reine Lesezeit. Gerade den Schluss fand ich doch etwas verstörend und ich bin mir bis jetzt nicht sicher, ob ich ihn wirklich zu 100% verstanden habe. Ich denke immer noch darüber nach.

Ich möchte noch soviel sagen, aber auch nicht zuviel verraten, deswegen will ich dieses Buch einfach nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen, da es mich sehr begeistern konnte. Bachman ist auch für alle Leser etwas, denen Stephen King vielleicht zu ausschweifend, zu langatmig ist. Sein Schreibtalent auf Bachman-Art ist einfach hart, direkt, brutal, schonungslos und mit einem Ende versehen, dass nachhallt. Keine Sonnenscheinkost, aber sehr schmackhaft.

“Amok” von Richard Bachman (Stephen King) aus dem Heyne Verlag, 220 Seiten, ISBN-13: 978-3453025547 (wird nicht mehr verlegt, ist nur noch gebraucht zu erhalten)

    Definitiv eine Geschichte, auf die man sich einlassen muss. Sonst funktioniert sie nicht. Ich glaube, King hat hier enorm viele Elemente aus seiner eigenen Schulzeit mit einfließen lassen. Egal ob aus der Zeit als er selbst die Schulbank drückte, oder als er als Lehrer unterwegs war.

    Auf den ersten Blick ist es für viele Leser sicherlich verwunderlich, warum das Buch auf Kings Wunsch hin nicht mehr verlegt wurde, aber ich glaube, King trifft den Nerv vieler Jugendlicher, die sich missverstanden oder misshandelt fühlen und auf Grund ihrer vermeintlichen Ähnlichkeit mit Decker nur die Nachahmung seiner Taten als Ausweg sehen. Für mich aus eben diesem Grund enorm faszinierend und ein weiterer Grund, warum ich King als Autor so extrem schätze.

      Auf der Lesung in Hamburg meinte er zu einer Zuschauerfrage sinngemäß auch, dass jemand, der seine Schulzeit nicht als Hölle erlebt hat, nicht ganz richtig sein kann.
      Ich mochte das Buch auch sehr, kann aber nach den Amokläufen, bei denen eben jenes Buch in den Spinden der Attentäter gefunden wurde, verstehen, warum er es nicht mehr verlegt sehen möchte.

      I was dubious about a remake of Straw Dogs, although until now I was unaware Lurie was behind it. Now I definitely think I’ll check it out, because I admired his work with The Contender (one of the best films about politics I’ve ever seen) and think his stated slant on the concept might just bring the story into a modern context. Great interview, Eric. Well done.

      It seems to me, as a non-expert, that there are two basic issues here. 1) Since ecomode is not defined, it cannot be a useful term for classifying anything. 2) If someone offered a workable definition of ecomode, the definition ought to include what sort of data can be used to determine that a species belongs to any particular ecomode. Until those issues are addressed, I think the discussion is moot.

Of course, we live in a 1928 brick building with steam heat where even with most of our radiators turned off at the floor it’s pretty much always above 70 degrees F in every room of the house for the whole winter.

      I can see from Russell Dee’s comment that this whole Romney tax thing has evolved into full fledged liberal looney conspiracy territory. I guess the 9/11 Truther crowd needed something else to focus their attention towards.Can I play?I think Mitt Romney’s taxes show that he tried to deduct his secret midget mud wrestling tournaments he held at his mansion. Oh, and he tried to deduct his baby seal hunting expeditions with Rick Santorum. Also, Mitt doesn’t look like he gets much sun. I think he’s a vampire.

    I can’t add anything much on the subject of agents, but what I did take away from the evening was that what made the difference in Imran’s case (apart, of course, from the obvious point that he had a fantastic product to offer) were his extraordinary reserves of self-belief and persistence, which enabled him to stick at it until the odds finally tipped his way. My favourite anecdote was the one about him sending a copy of his book to every member of parliament, only to have Anne Widdecombe to nominate it as her book of the year. Now who’d have guessed that one?

    This is a struggle for me right now. My children are 7, 5, 2 & 2 – I have put writing on the back burner since becoming a mom (well, to be honest, I’ve dabbled a little) – but now I don’t want to wait any longer. On one hand it feels selfish to want this for myself, after all, my children are still very young, but, on the other hand, I want to live out my passions in front of my children and show them how to reach for their own. This means writing during naps and bedtime – for now.
