Que se mueran los feos es una de las novelas que Boris Vian tradujo desde los originales del norteamericano negro Vernon Sullivan. En una época en la que los escritores negros no abundaban precisamante el hallazgo de Vian era una pequeña joya.

Si acaso el tal Vernon Sullivan hubiese existido en realidad, claro. Porque no se trataba más que de un pseudónimo inventado por el propio Vian para poder publicar sin el incordio de la moralina bien pensante que velaba por las buenas costumbres. Y es que Q...more

Ve Bütün Çirkinler Öldürülecek

Çeviri yüzünden odaklanmada sorun yaşadım. Başlar iyiydi ama ortalarda biraz sıkıldım sonu ise gerçekten iyiydi, gülerek kapattım kitabı.

Disappointingly bad. A magnificently handsome young man gets involved in a plot by a mad scientist to clone only beautiful people on some faraway island. Along the way our guy, who wanted to keep his virginity, is forced to have sex with lavishly beautiful women. The book reaches its finale when the hero gets to take part in an FBI rescue mission to infiltrate the secret island base, which is also infested with equally beautiful and continuously naked youngsters who fornicate 24/7.

Sounds like th...more

The genius of Boris Vian never tires. He lived five lives in one - and one of his great identities is Vernon Sullivan. Vian's love of pulp literature is an outlet of his terror fantasies of what America is at the time of the writing of this novel - late 1940's. This book reads like a Hardy Boys young adult novel with sex and mixed in the soup great pulp science fiction touches. A remarkable entertaining read. Oh and i published it!

Rocky, un jeune homme de 19 ans, est l’apollon de sa génération. Sa plus grande préoccupation est celle de rester vierge jusqu’à l’âge fatidique de ses 20 ans. Seulement voilà, un enchaînement d’évènements étranges mettra en péril sa volonté. Tour à tour forcé à se reproduire avec des clones humaines et séduit par de belles jeunes femmes bien réelles, Rocky résistera-t-il ?

Étrangement mêlé à un crime, Rocky et son ami décideront d’enquêter sur ces meurtres qui les concernent. Ils découvriront qu...more

RESPECT AND RULES!

Στην αρχή διαβάζοντας Boris Vian σκέφτηκα " φίλε μου κάτι δεν πάει καλά με αυτό τον άνθρωπο" ..
Αυτό ήταν το πρώτο του Βιβλίο που διάβασα και μετά τα πτώματα που έχουν το ίδιο χρώμα - που το θεωρώ καλύτερο- νομίζω ότι είναι από τα πιο ευκολοδιάβαστα(!) του. Και δηλώνω φανατική αναγνώστης του.
Δεν εχω λέξεις να περιγράψω ..
Σκεφτείτε έναν πινάκα του Νταλί φτιαγμένο από λέξεις η την εβδόμη συμφωνία του Μπετόβεν φτιαγμένη από εικόνες... Αυτό δημιουργεί ο Βίαν.!

Stefanie Beghein
An entertaining and frivolous detective story starring a mad scientist on an island and an irresistibly attractive male virgin. Through the lightness of the story, Boris Vian questions the obsessive pursuit of physical perfection – 66 years after its first publication, Et on tuera tous les affreux is still highly actual (and enjoyable, especially for those who like Austin Powers).
David
Boris Vian is bonkers. As far as entertaining his whimsy he is perhaps only slightly less committed than Raymond Roussel. Read it in one sitting, completely naked, sipping cognac, the glow of explosions from Arnie's Commando (1985) muted in the background to maximise the effect. Enjoy!

Lo suficientemente loca,como para ser una novela muy entretenida.
Sin pretensiones y amena. Perfecta para verano

¿qué cosa acabo de leer? en el buen sentido xD
Que se mueran los feos es una cosa extraña y divertida, una locura, pero me ha gustado
jajaja y al parecer, los feos dominarán el mundo
Amanda Davies
a very fast read. not as funny as other boris vian works, but it definitely cracked me up.
Katherine Fernández
Extraña, inclasificable y divertida.
Una afortunada mezcla de surrealismo y novela negra, brutal. Me apunto con otra novela de Vian.
Carles
Tenía muy buenos recuerdos de mi primera lectura. No debí volver a leerlo.

ich war gespannt, nach so viel hype... boris vian - die kaputten berliner bohemians, die ich in den späten 90ern in kreuzberg kennenlernte waren alle riesenfans von ihm - tja, leider muss ich schreiben: dieses buch braucht nicht gelesen werden. es ist schlicht langweilig. vielleicht konnte in den 60ern noch ein bissl ein skandal damit befördert werden, aber heutzutage. vielleicht sollt ich noch ein anderes von ihm lesen...

"I'm woken by Andy Sigman, whose big hands are vigorously shaking me about. I was dreaming about having sex with a giraffe, and Andy pulled me away at just the right time because I was about to do something really stupid. I thank him, and then we start preparing for our jump down onto the island."


It's pretty safe to say Boris Vian was a better literary promoter than writer, and also, I assume, translator.

¡Hay que ver qué suerte tengo! Que se mueran los feos ha sido siempre mi himno particular. Había oído la expresión con anterioridad y no la asociaba ni remotamente a una novela, sino más bien a un dicho popular o algo por el estilo.
Un experimento interesante, a ver si algún día me seleccionan a mi también para un experimento parecido.
Eugenesia en clave de humor.

"Je déteste le pudding à l'avoine; ma mère m'en faisait manger des kilos quand j'avait onze ans et j'étais obligé d'aller me chatouiller le gosier avec la queue du chat pour restituer à Dieu la part du pauvre."

Si Vian s'était contenté de rester sur sa ligne conductrice du début, plutôt que de relater une suite d'orgie sexuelle (pas tout à fait mais c'en est pas loin), le livre aurait été plus digeste.
Francisco
Primera novela de Boris Vian. Cruda, brutal, magistral. Tensa, alocada... Muy recomendable, aunque no llega al poder poético de otras de sus obras.
Julie Boudreau
Ah ce cher Vian!
Un surprenant roman "à l'américaine" mettant en vedette le pauvre, pauvre Rock Belley. Que la vie est dure!

j'adore comme d'habitude le style de Boris Vian mais la trame m'a beaucoup déçue, ce côté Sullivan, je n'adhère pas
Jacinto Pérez
Siempre genial Boris Vian, hiciera lo que hiciera, mezcla de surrealismo y novela negra, o viceversa.
Lorena
I really liked it. It was a hillarious book which combined jazz musicians and crazy doctors.
Will E
Very funny and outlandish parody of pulp, including noir, sci-fi, and porno.
moceanu
I'm aware of the irony and subtext, but it's just not an interesting story.

Como la Isla del Dr. Moreau... pero moderna, más bonita y cargada de porno.

Boris Vian was a French polymath: writer, poet, musician, singer, translator, critic, actor, inventor and engineer. He is best remembered for novels such as L’Écume des jours and L'Arrache-cœur (translated into English as Froth on the Daydream and Heartsnatcher, respectively). He is also known for highly controversial "criminal" fiction released under the pseudonym Vernon Sullivan and some of his...more
