Living in Berlin during the 1980's, with no plans other than to pass time working in a bar Herr Lehmann lives one day at a time with no commitments. Originally written in German and titled Herr Lehmann this story represents life in Berlin, for the twenty-something’s, before the wall came down. With no responsibility or sense of short-coming Herr Lehmann has embarked on a career; a career as a bartender. Even when questioned by others he does not see bartending as an interim job, this is something that he has spent time perfecting.

Berlin Blues is a richly entertaining evocation of life in the city and a classic of modern-day decadence. Books related to Berlin Blues.

It's 1989 and, whenever he isn't hanging out in the local bars, Herr Lehmann lives entirely free of responsibility in the bohemian Berlin district of Kreuzberg. Through years of judicious sidestepping and heroic indolence, this barman has successfully avoided the demands of parents, landlords, neighbours and women. But suddenly one unforeseen incident after another seems to threaten his idyllic and rather peaceable existence. He has an encounter with a decidedly unfriendly dog, his parents threaten to descend on Berlin from the provinces, and he meets a dangerously attractive woman who throws his emotional life into confusion. Berlin Blues is a richly entertaining evocation of life in the city and a classic of modern-day decadence.

5 stars for the delivery, but the book is AWFUL. Purely unimaginative and ordinary. It all comes to an anticlimactic end, like much of the book itself. It’s full of meaningless dialog that seems to be a cheap measure to make the book longer. He goes on and on about his hatred for breakfast in an attempt to make himself seem more cultured than other Berliners. The plot itself takes place over the span of a month in Lehmann’s life: an alcoholic that neglects his best friend and swoons over a woman that makes good rost beef. In the end, he finds himself alone and having an internal battle about whether or not to buy a TV. There ya go! That’s it! No need to read it because I can assure you that there’s nothing interesting about it.

great story, loved the book and the immersive feel into that era that it has. recommended

This story was alright. I don't connect to male characters very much, and I didn't really get into this as much as Woman in Berlin.

One of my favorite books. You might get more out of it if you understand a bit about German culture.

Calling someone "Mr." and using the informal version of you is a contradiction in German. Combination of formal and informal. When Frank's friends start calling him Mr. Lehmann when he turns 30, it is a bit joke.

I highly recommend watching the movie (Herr Lehmann). One of those few examples where the movie really represents the book well. Plus, it has a great soundtrack! Herr Lehmann [ NON-USA FORMAT, PAL, Reg.2 Import - Germany ]

This book is not for everybody -- if you don't have a sense of humor, or if you don't like trying new things, or you're offended by profanity -- you may not like this book.

That said, this book is AWESOME. It'll have you absolutely crying with laughter. Frank Lehmann is one of the best main characters I've ever read. His honesty gives him a uniquely interesting perspective and insight.

The only problem is that the quality of the translation is not quite what it should be.

Not much to say. I got this boo for a German Lit class, and I actually liked it. One of the few I did. It's worth a read for anyone who is interested in Germany, or just Historical Fiction.

I bought the book in anticipation of an upcoming trip to Berlin. It takes place in 1980's West Berlin, but doesn't have much local context. Instead the book is a 20-something bartending narrator's self-absorbed tribulations that will inevitably end in some coming-of-age climax, but I didn't stick around to find out. If you like this genre, stick with High Fidelity.
I've seen the movie a couple of times and read the book (in German) and wanted to share it with friends who didn't speak German. I read through it and the translation kept bothering me, but I feel translations seldom live up to the original. An artful translation, after all, is something that only truly be appreciated by someone who doesn't need it. It would be five stars with a better translation.

The book is still great, especially for anybody who has spent any time in Berlin, but if you're giving it as a gift to a Germanophone recipient, buy the original text. The informal style and writing also make the German version suitable for people who are still learning German.
