Med stor humor og ironi lader Pontoppidan den noget naive og romantiske jegfortæller i romanen indse, at fantasierne har spillet ham et puds, og hans idealforestillinger om livet og de kvinder, han møder på et fynsk badehotel, viser sig som rene illusioner. Den romantiske kærlighed afsløres som basalt driftsbegær. På badehotellet, hvor jegfortælleren for en stund har forladt de dagligdags borgerlige rammer, bryder de urgamle basale driftsinstinkter igennem på bekostning af moral og fornuft. Den desillusionerede jegfortæller finder et alternativ til dette liv i den asketiske livsførelse han møder hos den kloge og kyniske Dr. Levin, men hvilken livsførelse, der er at foretrække, lader Pontoppidan som vanligt stå åbent.

In this powerful, epic biography, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David McCullough unfolds the adventurous life-journey of John Adams, the brilliant, fiercely independent, often irascible, always honest Yankee patriot who spared nothing in his zeal for the American Revolution. Adams thought, wrote, and spoke out for the ´´Great Cause´´ come what might; he traveled far and wide in all seasons and often at extreme risk; he rose to become the second president of the United States and saved the country from blundering into an unnecessary war; he was rightly celebrated for his integrity, and regarded by some as ´´out of his senses´´; and his marriage to the wise and valiant Abigail Adams is one of the most moving love stories in American history. Much about Adams´ life will come as a surprise to many. His rocky relationship with friend and eventual archrival Thomas Jefferson, his courageous voyage on the frigate Boston in the winter of 1778 and his later trek over the Pyrenees are exploits few would have dared and that few listeners will ever forget. McCullough´s John Adams has the sweep and vitality of a great novel. This is history on a grand scale - an audiobook about politics, war, and social issues, but also about human nature, love, religious faith, virtue, ambition, friendship and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas. Above all, it is an enthralling, often surprising story of one of the most important and fascinating Americans who ever lived. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Edward Herrmann.
