Art is the mirror of our betrayed ideals page 385 Still under the effects of the inebriating The Brothers K I thought the best way to overcome a book hungover was to get drunk again Reckless and foolish I knowMy head still spinning around and my heart wrenched into a tight ball as I write these lines The Golden notebook is not a kind bookIt has challenged my patience and tolerance with its apparent non direction I have even despised Anna the narrator of the story thinking her naive selfish and snobbishBut being a woman who dwells in constant contradiction I have irrevocably fallen under the spell of Lessing Anna s radical voice A woman writer and mother who says the unsayable thinks the unthinkable and puts it all down in her notebooks in all its raw emotional and intellectual chaosFour Notebooks pouring with self contempt full of disillusionment tolls for searching clues in her past in order to reconcile her unbearably miserable present The black recalls Anna s youth in wartime Rhodesia her initial involvement with the Communist Party and how her early experiences served as material for her later successful novel Also a retrospective insight in which Anna can t neither recognize herself nor her ingenuous expectations on women s independence and liberation What business has a novelist to cling to the memory of a smile or a look knowing so well the complexities behind them page 115 The red portrays her political doubts with shocking power and blistering honesty threading radical exploration of communism together with Anna s growing need for truth seeking rather than political ideologyI found her growing estrangement with The Party especially poignant when she starts feeling dubious about ends justifying means and the cynicism of some comrades Yet why do I have a home at all Because I wrote a book I am ashamed of and it made a lot of money Luck luck that s all And I hate all that my home my possessions my rights And yet come to the point where I m uncomfortable I fall back on it like everyone else Mine Property Possessions page 356 The yellow notebook was the one that struck me the most but at the same time also shined out with unexpected recognition Anna s futile effort to write as a third person naming her creation Ella in an attempt to distance herself from the inadeuacy and constant failures of her relationships with men reminded me strongly of DH Lawrence s reflections on sexuality morality and motherhoodAnna s reaffirmed feelings of independence reacting against the vanity egoism and insecurities of her usually married male partners contrast with her constant displays of traditional female behavior expecting to stop being the mistress to become the wife It all sounded so real and sincere to me that I felt Anna s sufferings and sorrows as my own I am unhappy because I have lost some kind of independence some freedom but my being free has nothing to do with writing a novel it has to do with my attitude towards a man and that has been proved dishonest because I am in pieces page 283 Finally the blue notebook appears as an accurate account of everyday life where intertwined switches of mood rambling thoughts and semi deranged descriptions of dreams become a crude testimony of existential doubts But isn t there something wrong with the fact that my sleep is satisfying exciting enjoyable than anything that happens to me awake page 217 Defragmented pieces of unconsciousness create the most truthful and frightening image of a woman who uestions the different versions of herself to find her long lost wholenessDoris Lessing addresses the conflicts between the maternal and erotic life of the difficulties to conduct a career or at least to try to while raising a child of the letdown that comes along with exploration of political ideologies of the hardships of facing a mental breakdown of the frustration of being a liberated woman but still be dependant on a masculine presence in her life And she does it all looking at the reader straight in the eye without blinkingAnd don t get me wrong I don t see Lessing as some sort of personal feminist hero I don t think that s the point But then as now being in my early thirties this novel has guided me towards which uestions to ask and which answers are better left unsoughtEverything Life love death the myriad beings buried deep inside me Everything has become Golden clear Because there has to be a crack in everything so that the light gets inThe failures and inadeuacies of my pastThe bleakness of my upcoming futureThe beauty and the futility of it all so worth the effort

We were neither of us at all clever we were too happy 3 12 stars Another book where a five star rating system is woefully inadeuate 3 12 stars doesn t even begin to explain all the thoughts I had while reading The Golden Notebook There were parts that I loved I must have collected several dozen uotes on women and human nature that just seemed so fresh and insightful uite unlike anything I d read before Then there were other parts that were so laborious I wondered how anyone had managed to push through it This inconsistency is to be expected I suppose because of the book s format In that it is separated into the four notebooks kept by Anna each pertaining to a different aspect of her lifeThis fragmentation is a central theme of the novel Anna s life and mental health fracture the Communist Party she was long a member of is falling apart women s place in society and the way they think about sex and marriage is changing These are not fleeting touches but are analysed in depth over the course of the novelAnna s notebooks are an attempt to get a grip on her life and yet they may be perpetuating the problem She documents and reviews her experiences in Southern Rhodesia in a black notebook records her disillusionment with the Communist Party in a red notebook writes a novel mirroring her own life and relationship upheaval in a yellow notebook and keeps an inconsistent diary in a blue notebook The final golden notebook is an attempt to bring all these fragments of her life togetherIt is essentially the story of a woman trying to unite many contradicting aspects of her identity a story which also parallels the broken society that existed during the Cold War Era Fighting the colour bar and class struggles in Southern Rhodesia whilst simultaneously embodying cliches of British colonialism The Communist Party violating human rights whilst attempting to empower the people Women falling desperately in love whilst being the new kind of free women You know I think writing this review has really helped me understand how interesting I found certain parts of this book I m just not sure how much the fascinating themes really justify the length of this novel and the other 50 60% that wasn t so fascinating Some slog to get to the goods is of course forgivable but I also now fully understand why several of my friends reacted to my reading The Golden Notebook with good luck I never finished that oneIt s a slow complex meandering tale that captures so much about being a woman in Britain during this strange and changing time There were times when I was just hoping it would end and yet when it did I couldn t stop thinking about itFacebook Instagram

I am full of a deep manic relief at being released from the reading of this book I feel the need to skip to jump joyfully into the air to cry out to the world I did it I did it And I never have to do it again A few years ago I read Doris Lessing s debut novel The Grass is Singing which I adored It doesn t necessarily mean that I should therefore adore this her much lauded much revered feminist but don t let her hear you call it that 1962 masterpiece But I did hope The thing is they are both two radically different animals The Grass is Singing is a novel a great one The Golden Notebook is something completely different altogether I might say it s a test of one s endurance It definitely tested mineI didn t get off to a good start The first part which lasts 230 small typed pages was SO dry So dry I started to feel panicky the way I feel when I ve been very thirsty for far too long and I start to doubt I will ever see water again And then someone hands me a glass of CINNAMON to gulp down That s how dry I thought I just might die reading these pages But I chastised myself and told myself to give it a fair chance Robin this is Doris Lessing for goodness sake she s so ridiculously smart she s terrifying and you could learn a thing or two from her Plus you ve got two male friends here on Goodreads who seem to have gotten her Glenn s review and Alex s review so why the hell can t youSo I started part two with renewed vigour and damn I was hooked I was IN my little grey cells were tingling the book moved with me through my day I was interested in the notebooks in the search for self in the struggle men and women have with each other I loved the character of Anna who lives freely has sex with whomever she pleases always striving to be truthful to her convictions I was in awe of the uniue demanding structure too I was not however so interested in her communist ramblings the psychoanalytic ramblings her very strange attitude towards homosexuality or anything that she had to say that was in a paragraph that lasted 5 pagesThen as I was rounding the bend into the final section I was again engulfed in dryness In repetition in a didactic Sahara in an overly intellectual self absorbed voice that I wanted so badly to stop And now that I m finished I m left wishing that I could really understand what was the point of it all In her introduction to the novel Doris Lessing is very grumpy with what critics have said about the book She says it s not feminist It s not about finding the perfect man or woman either It s she says about breakdowns as a path to healing I see that in Anna s gradual descent towards madness in Tommy s journey too Mainly though what I took away from this novel is that we are all just lost kids searching for a way to make sense of ourselves and the world all in the absurd constructs of society It gets messy really messy And we can t fix it all But we can pick up our feet and take the next step pick up the phone and call our best friend pick up our pen and write the next word roll that boulder a uarter inch up the hill That s all we can do And it takes a hell of a lot of courage some days It s a small painful courage which is at the root of every life because injustice and cruelty is at the root of life Huh that s pretty deep I don t disagree Doris I just wish you could have said it in a lot less pages
