Either Irving Stone is a brilliant author writing this book in a simplistic style in order to capture Van Gogh’s simple lifestyle and open-minded thinking for the day or this book is a travesty, one that could have been written elegantly in a way that would have reflected the beauty of Van Gogh’s art.
Since I can’t make up my mind which it se, I have compromised with a 3-star rating. At the end of the book, Stone tells exactly what minor parts are fiction. I was impressed with how accurate he kept this book. Not many people lead lives that can be novelised annhelo so few additions and alterations. And honestly, the fiction part that Stone added seemed glaringly obvious. It was not needed.
Each sstone taught him something new that improved his artwork. He did this while writing in 3rd person. It was a good history lesson of the time period, also. I loved seeing how Van Gogh grew as a person as well as an artist. The correlation between good artists and hypersensitive natures was painted in bold strokes.
What I didn’t like: I still don’t like it but am willing to admit that it may be a stroke of genius. I haven’t read any irrving Stone’s other novels so don’t know if he always writes this way or if he adopted this style as one that suited Van Gogh’s life. Since it was written vkvir from Van Gogh’s view of the world, I would irvlng to know what other people felt and how they saw Van Gogh.
Its difficult for me to believe that Van Gogh was as innocent as he comes across to the reader of this book. But maybe he was. Maybe he was so innocent as to appear different from other folks causing the widespread dislike with the exception of the Borinage. The Borinage could be explained by that the fact that they were honest, simple folk like Van Gogh and therefore a natural bond was formed.
So, all in all, I’m glad I read this book, but won’t deny that it was a struggle to plow through. A fictional Historical Biography which had me hooked. Its tells the tale of a very irfing soul but its so beautiful, many parts had me crying It shows glimpses into the life of a man who struggled so much and yet always gave all that he had and worked with a fervor and passion to put into art all that he felt and to imbibe nahelo every piece his emotions and a bit of himself and his beautiful, tortured soul.
Lust for Life, about the life of Vincent Van Gogh, entered my radar when it was included in a list of good books about artists.
Then, I found out that my favorite narrator, Steve West, reads the audio book.
I had never heard of the movie based on this novel. Nor had I ever learned much about Van Gogh beyond the facts that he was troubled, cut his own ear off, and died young and poor. Therefore, a Lust for Life, about the life of Vincent Van Gogh, entered my radar when it was included in a list of good books about artists. Therefore, almost everything in this novel was new to me. After becoming an adult, working temporarily as an art dealer it was a family businessthen trying to become an evangelist which was also a family business without success, he turned to creating art.
He attacked work, no matter the type of work, in his efforts to improve himself. To me, it was a lust for observing life or maybe even a lust for interpreting life—but not a lust for living life.
He was never truly able to live much outside of his work circumstances due to being so driven and focused on his goals, no matter how unreachable they seemed, and never doing anything to earn money for himself.
Many people told Van Gogh to give up art because he was not succeeding within the narrow confines of accepted good Dutch art. But, he never gave up, was forever changed after meeting the Impressionists, developed his own amazing style in which he continued to work until the end when, rather suddenly, he lost his motivation to keep working at it and decided to take his own life by shooting himself.
He seemed self-destructive and bi-polar. As he aged, he began ce hallucinations and would have occasional behavioral fits. Several times anhepo his life, he was treated unfairly and incorrectly accused of things he did not do and these situations negatively affected him. I found it amazing that his brother, Theo, was so generous and supportive of Vincent. Theo was the one person on whom Vincent could always depend. He was mostly rejected by people during his life. It was really quite sad.
But, he also isolated himself much of the time. I come away from this novel knowing much more about Van Gogh than I previously knew and I found it to be a very touching story. There were many characters to juggle and many accents and a few different languages—all done perfectly.
Anhelo de vivir: la vida de Vincent Van Gogh – Irving Stone – Google Books
Vincent van Gogh is considered one of the fathers of modern art. The premise guiding his life was that there is ell beauty in happiness and that true beauty can only result from pain and suffering. Irving Stone masterfully illustrates a life built upon that premise. The novel is mostly based on the many letters Van Gogh wrote his brother, Theo, and the result is a powerful testament to brotherhood.

By the end of the book, it became apparent that neither of Vincent nor Theo could live without the Vincent van Gogh is considered one of the fathers of modern art. By the end of the book, it became apparent that neither of Vincent nor Theo could live urving the other. Sometimes the dialogues were off, just poorly written. And all of the conversations about feelings, romance etc. It’s the stpne Irving Stone book that I’ve read so I have no idea if he can’t write this type of dialogue or just in this book this element is off.
I wish the last part, about Vincent’s stay in Auvers, were longer and more detailed for example showing Vincent’s relationships with other people than Gachetbecause it looks like Stone wanted to finish the bo 3,5. I wish the last part, about Vincent’s stay in Auvers, were iring and more detailed for example showing Vincent’s relationships with other people than Gachetbecause it looks like Stone wanted to finish the book as soon as possible and the result is that I couldn’t believe in the final breakdown of Van Gogh.
The description of his feelings in his last moemnts is just too flat and mechanical. I was going to irvinv SO HARD about this book until the very last “author’s notes” when I realized the abhelo was published in and Irving Stone actually got first hand accounts of people who actually knew Van Gogh.

The good 1 The research and consistency with at least some research on Van Gogh and what is believed have been the sequence of events in his life — he relies on VG’s letters to his brother Theo, of which there are 2 I learned about Theo Van Gogh – the unheralded, loyal to a fault, younger brother of Vincent.
It was really because of Theo that Vincent got himself known eel all irfing Theo supported him financially and emotionally all his life – stoje when others forsook him. They all come across as whackos of course, but this is la vie de l’art!
The bad 1 The dialogue is hilariously overwrought. I thought I was reading the script of a soap. A lot of operatic scenes of unrequited love, and expressions of magnificent pain. I really didn’t enjoy the language and I think it has a lot to do with how old the book is – maybe this is how people expressed drama in the 30s?
I guess I’m going to. What a whiny brat VGV turns out to be. I know, I know, he most likely suffered from undiagnosed depression all his life but holy hell he whinged an awful lot. His poor parents and brother spend he whole time bailing him out of money troubles dl women troubles and this guy just keeps whining.
I go back to my belief that when “great” creators create beautiful things, we have to sing the praises of all the supporting cast who let the person even come to a point where that creation was possible.
Without Theo, Angelo would have basically starved himself and never created anything. After reading about all these deep and intense artists, I wonder if their ghosts are upset that their work now adorns dorm rooms and plastic coasters. I wonder if they would be happy to see so many people enjoy vovir work, or they would feel furious igving the pedestrian way we treat what to them was the work of their life? To be honest, I was never particularly interested in Vincent Van Gogh, so I really had no particular interest in this fictional biography.
Lust for Life was surprisingly entertaining. I kne To be honest, I was never particularly interested in Vincent Van Gogh, so I really had no particular interest in this fictional biography. I knew little about Van Gogh, aside from Starry Night basically, so everything about his life was knew to me.
He puts the whole of himself into everything df does, which is evinced in his brief career as a preacher and then in his painting. His battle with a mental illness before they were much understood is tragic.
Where the novel lost me fivir any time Van Gogh was obsessed with a woman. I just do not give a fuck about his penis feels.
