When lonely sixteen-year-old university student Blanche meets the dazzling Christa, she is swept off her feet. Christa, who talks freely of her impoverished background in the Eastern Belgian town of Malmedy, claims to work in a bar with her boyfriend, a David Bowie lookalike called Detlev. When Blanche’s mother, who finds her own daughter rather colourless, bookish and dull When lonely sixteen-year-old university student Blanche meets the dazzling Christa, she is swept off her feet.
When Blanche’s mother, who finds her own daughter rather colourless, bookish and dull, is also dazzled by Christa though, she soon invites her to stay at the family house. Suddenly Christa can do no wrong and, as Blanche’s parents scour their address books for long-lost friends to invite to dinner to meet the newcomer, their friendship sours and Blanche’s already negligible self-confidence goes into a steep decline.

Lists with This Book. Kako lijepih, tako i onih manje lijepih. Apr 01, Gabril rated it really liked it. Christa si insinua nella vita di Blanche occupando ben presto tutto lo spazio, fisico e affettivo. Importa la parola che suggestiona e ferisce, che apre delle crepe, che induce a colmare dei vuoti o a viverli. La storia non si conclude come ci ci aspetta, sebbene la protagonista-vittima abbia infine, come speriamo, la sua vendetta sulla carnefice.
Giustizia sembra fatta, dunque. View all 3 comments. L’ouvrage manque sa cible: Bref, passez votre chemin! Mal wieder ein Highlight. Ich bin begeistert, auch von dieser Geschichte und ich glaube, das ich mich noch lange daran erinnern werde.
Nein, al Mal wieder ein Highlight. Das schafft kein anderer Autor, den ich bisher gelesen habe. Nicht auf so wenigen Seiten. Jul 14, Mohsen. Lo odio con todas mis fuerzas.
Es todo puro narcisismo y autocomplacencia. De un maniqueismo alarmante. Cuenta una supuesta amistad entre dos adole ‘Antichrista’ es un libro horrible, uno de los peores que se han escrito nunca. Cuenta una supuesta amistad entre dos adolescentes: Ya es bien cierto que la peor literatura se hace con los mejores sentimientos e intenciones. Feb 03, Yasmin rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a story of my very own life.
Not that I ever had to live with a fucking Christa that would steal my parents or anything, but I have been bullied by such mean girls all my life.
They stole my pride and confidence, and pushed me back ten years. I think this book might be a big help to the young me,if I ever get a time machine. Es hat mir sehr gut gefallen und wird nicht mein letztes Buch von Amelie Nothomb gewesen sein. Jan 26, Joanne rated it did not like it. If I were to choose a word to describe the book, I would say “annoying”. The episodes from this book are most likely to happen in secondary school, not university.
Simply immature and stupid. I lowered my rating from 3 to 2 stars which might seem like a minor change to you but it’s a pretty significant one for me. That’s where I draw the line between a book that was just average overall but which I would still recommend, and a book that’s just subpar all around and could stay unread for all I care.
Upon reflecting on this read, I have to admit that Nothomb’s overarching message just left a bitter taste in my mouth; I honestly don’t need more authors pushing the messages of whitenes I lowered my rating from 3 to 2 stars which might seem like a minor change to you but it’s a pretty significant one for me.
Upon reflecting on this read, I have to admit that Nothomb’s overarching message just left a bitter taste in my mouth; I honestly don’t need more authors pushing the messages of whiteness equating goodness and purity.
Nothomb seems, mind my French, absolutely batshit crazy. Whenever I see an interview with her or watch a documentary on her creative process, I can’t help but shake my head. She seems like a self-invented art persona, not a real person. I’m usually not quick to judge people I don’t know but I’m really creeped out by her.
And honestly, if I ever saw her out in the open, I would run. The book is just such a bore. When I read Nothomb I want the crazy, I want things to be creepy and over-the-top; I’m not seeking a realistic portrayal of a conflict. It’s the story of the shy Blanche who has no friends at university and falls in with the popular girl Christa. It turns out that Christa has a dark side and tries to subjugate Blanche and take her place in her family.
The whole plot is ridiculously foreseeable and apart from a few initial moments of shock, it’s tediously tame. Yes, I can’t make that shit up.
‘Sixteen-year-old girl massacres parents’
And thus her story contains a lot of religious metaphors and analogies. I didn’t vibe with that interpretation at all because everything was way too fucking obvious: Blanche, our pure christ-like figure, Christa, the literal antichrist who’s trying to corrupt her, the kiss of Judas Thus the story becomes a typical coming of age story with teenage Blanche being her own worst enemy; she needs to free herself of her self-doubt and self-loathing to become a functional adult.
It’s still not a world-shaking read then, but at least it becomes bearable.
I’m definitely going to continue reading Nothomb, and hopefully find another gem such as Robert des Noms Propres. And remember, kids, don’t partake in any religious cults. C’est un livre que j’ai lu en marchant dans la rue ce qui m’arrive assez rarement. Jan 29, Lady-R rated it it was ok Shelves: Desde la primer persona del singular. La tal Christa no es odiosa.

No saca provecho de nadie ni de nada, no es repelente su comportamiento, ultimadamente, ella hace y deshace a quien se lo noghomb, donde se lo permiten: No estoy de acuerdo.
La novela logra sacarte un par de carcajadas. Lo que todos intentamos: View all 4 comments. Jul 12, Paolina Daniele rated it liked it. Una diabolica Christa, amata e ricercata da tutti, l’altra, Ameile, taciturna e solitaria. Tuttavia la ragazza appare molto misteriosa, racconta diverse akelie che verranno presto scoperte da Notomb e raccontate ai suoi genitori che volevano bene a Christa come una figlia.
This book made me so angry – but it is also creepy and absolutely fascinating! Antichrista mi pare davvero il romanzo emblema della Nothomb: Una trama da teen movie statunitense.
Con uno spiccato gusto post-moderno mi immagino perfettamente una trasposizione teatrale di questo romanzo: Personaggi detestabili, trama surreale. Per non parlare di Christa di cui non sappiamo mai niente eppure, per una volta, io vorrei davvero passare dentro la testa di tutte le Christa del mondo.
Mi incuriosisci, cara Amelie, ma non mi convinci mai. Aug 10, Aida rated it did not like it. Cateva remarci inteligente, doua personaje promitatoare si atat.
Lucrurile sunt destul de previzibile pana la sfarsit, cand personajul Blanche pare sa sufere o evolutie. Pare, pentru ca nu e cine stie ce – un sarut lesbi in public, wow, mare chestie! Ca sa nu mai spun ca nu-i vad rostul, as fi fost mai curioasa sa aflu ce i-a spus Antichristei, atunci s-ar fi vazut schimbarea – poate antichfista nu e.

Cartea nu e chiar asa de rea, e mai mult neterminata, ar avea nevoie de inca doua drafturi serioase, pentru completari e minusculatemperari si mici corectii sa-i dea mai multa credibilitate mai e cineva care crede ca o naveta de ore pe zi, timp de 20 de zile pe luna e mai ieftina decat chiria la camin?
