    1. Amacı ve kapsamı bakımından oldukça ilginç bilgiler içeren, adından da anlaşılacağı üzere edebiyat dünyasının magazinini yapan bir kitap bu. İçerisinde bulunan hikayelerin ve anekdotların yarısını biliyordum ama tekrardan hatırlamaktan keyif aldım. İlk kez duyduklarımı ise büyük bir açlıkla okudum. Malum dedikodu ata sporumuz:) Metinden bağımsız, yazarların hayatlarını çok ilginç bulan ve bunları çoğu zaman araştıran bir okur olarak beni tatmin eden bi [...]

    2. Cine-ar fi zis că marii scriitori au fost atât de duși cu pluta? Cu siguranță, nu eu :))Informativă și haioasă foc! Recomand!

    3. Entertaining and highly educational. If you've ever thought to yourself, "hey, I wonder how many famous authors had really freaky sex lives?" (answer: a lot) then this is the book for you.Here's some other useful tidbits of information I learned from this book, all of which I'll be sure to bring up in every English class I ever take from now on: -Lord Byron kept snippets of his girlfriends' pubic hair in envelopes. And he had a lot of girlfriends (250 in Venice in one year alone). -The Bronte si [...]

    4. Biografii neconvenționale interesante. Vieți și creiere complicate, marcate de boală, viciu sau genetică, încât m-am întrebat deseori cum și când au reușit să creeze atâtea capodopere.Mai puțin can-can decât anunță coperta. ;)

    5. Тъй като в своите почти 300 страници побира кратка биография и любопитни случки за над 40 хора на перото, не може да се очаква някаква задълбоченост и изчерпателност. "Жълта" по съществото си, тази книга обаче е написана изключително добронамерено и с приятно чувство за хумор [...]

    6. Secret Lives of Great Authors is the kind of book that you should read in the company of others. It’s filled with odd bits of trivia that you want to share with someone the instant you read them, and without sharing the trivia seems to fly right out of your head.I was going to come here and write all kinds of witty little things about all the secrets that I learned while reading the book and it seems that I have forgotten a lot of them. The overall impression that I got from this book is that [...]

    7. O carte scrisă pe un ton amuzant despre unii din cei mai mari scriitori americani și europeni. Obiceiuri proaste, caractere nobile sau, din contră, infecte, întâmplări memorabile, morți dubioase, o întreagă panoplie de ciudățenii, poate exagerate, sau poate nu, care completează biografiile oficiale. De citit pe apucate și de râs pe înfundate.

    8. So according to this book, most authors were drunks, drug addicts, adulterers, crazy and depressed. Boy do I have a long way to go!

    9. N-am început cartea asta cu prea mari așteptări, speram că va fi o lectură ușurică și amuzantă, dar abia - abia am terminat-o. Tonul răutăcios m-a cam iritat, am avut constant senzația că autorul se străduiește prea tare să ne strice impresia despre scriitori. OK, unii erau nebuni, alții afurisiți, alții perverși șamd, dar asta nu înseamnă că trebuie să uităm că ne-au adus, totuși, opere valoroase și nici nu justifică tonul superior în care mi s-a părut scrisă î [...]

    10. Editia romaneasca a acestei carti mi-a atras atentia in primul rand prin culori. Cartea are o imagine vesela, parca e pusa pe sotii tot timpul. Aspectul vizual al acestei carti o evidentiaza cu usurinta, indiferent de felul cartilor de langa ea. De multa vreme nu am mai vazut pe piata o carte brosata atat de placuta ochiului. Coperta e identica cu cea a editiei originale, si este o mare ispita pentru cel care o vede prima oara pe raft.Continuarea pe:descopera/robert-schna

    11. Majoritatea celor prezentați sunt americani, nu e destul de reprezentativă pentru toți „marii scriitori”.

    12. Viața secretă a marilor scriitori este o încântare pentru toate simțurile. De la poveștile savuroase – cunoscute și mai puțin cunoscute – despre autorii iconici din Renaștere până în zilele noastre, la ilustrațiile haioase, calitatea hârtiei și designul paginilor, acest volum este o mică bijuterie ce nu trebuie să lipsească din biblioteca unui cititor împătimit. bookishstyle/tag/viata-

    13. If you're a literary nerd, this book is definitely for you. Beware, though, because if you already like to do research about authors like myself, there will be things in here that you already know. Having said that, there are also things that I've never heard of before. It's such a quick read where you can read one author's story, put the book down and then pick it up again later. Insightful and humorous, it reminded me that my favorite authors have flaws (some of which are BIG!), but it just ma [...]

    14. Lepšie klepy ako z Blesku a Nového Času dohromady xDNevedela som sa od tejto knihy odrthnúť - Odhliadnúc od pravdivostnej hodnoty niektorých tvrdení (Niektoré menšie chybičky som tam našla aj ja, ale zas nič vážne ;)) je to skvelý matroš na výuku. Podľa mňa najlepšia cesta ako "donútiť" puberťákov čítať povinnú literatúru. Dáte im autora, ktorý je fakt "hustý", dozvedia sa o ňom snáď aj to, čo ani on sám nevedel a už sú len krôčik od toho, aby začali č [...]

    15. An enjoyable read on a favorite topic. The entry for each author begins with a checklist of information including nationality, Zodiac sign, major works, contemporaries & rivals, and literary style. The remainder is a collection of "secrets" of his/her life. Humorous illustrations help bring them to life. A definite must on my reread list.

    16. Informații interesante, un stil de a spune lucrurile amuzant și care îți menține interesul pe tot parcursul lecturii și o selecție de autori despre care îmi doream să știu mai multe. Asta da carte pe gustul meu.

    17. Bu kitapta çok önemli yazarların iğrençlikleri, saçmalıkları, korkuları, inatları, kabalıkları ve daha bunlara benzer pek çok insanî taraflarını göreceksiniz! Yazar kültü üzerinden insanın aşağılıklığına, acziyetine ve varoluş mücadelesine şahitlik edeceksiniz. Bu bakımdan kitabın bir magazin derlemesinden daha fazlası olduğunu düşünüyorum. Dostoyevski'nin olmayışına bir hayli içerlesem de okunmaya değer bir kitap. Okumadan önce dikkat edin, içinden [...]

    18. This is the perfect book for getting yourself out of a reading (and writing) rut. Featuring fascinating facts about the lives of well-known authors made me want to read their work, especially the lesser-known works that fall off the standard canon, as well as realising these people were just as flawed as we are today. Naturally with any collection like this, there are big decisions made as to who is included and who isn’t (and this is briefly touched on in the introduction) however I would say [...]

    19. I picked this up the other day & I've been enjoying it ever since. The layout of each chapter being a different author or set of authors is nice, since it makes for a good bathroom book or a nice book to read before you go to sleep. I'm not sure if all of the facts are true (as said by one of the other reviewers), but they make for good reading. My only complaint is that the book is set up very strangely. The book's pages are rather thick & stiff, which puts me at constant fear of the sp [...]

    20. The most important thing to say about this book: it's the perfect bathroom reading! Apart from this. I picked this up because I was curious but while I was reading I realized that I didn't want to know half of the stuff that was written on it. I realized that everyone is entitled to have is one weirdness and no one should make fun of it. Yeah, maybe that was the problem: the tone in which the author described his little trivia. It was as if he felt himself to be too superior to every one else an [...]

    21. Un volum pe care l-am citit plină de încântare! O combinație foarte reușită între ilustrațiile amuzante și textul foarte bine scris de Robert Schnakenber, cu tentă la fel de amuzantă. Recunosc, despre unii scriitori mai știam ciudățenii, însă habar n-aveam de majoritatea lucrurilor pe care Schnakenberg le dezvăluie despre ei în această carte. „Viața secretă” merită citită fără grabă și cu mintea deschisă. Garantat vă veți distra pe parcurs!***recenzia la link-ul [...]

    22. "Тайният живот на великите автори" е една забавна книжка с много добри комиксови илюстрации. Върши страхотна работа за запълване на свободното време - казва по нещо ново и естествено повтаря вече казани неща. Авторът не е известен в България, но като че ли не е такъв и в чужби [...]

    23. Kitabda internetdə tapılmayacaq heç nə yoxdur. Müəllif bir az yumor qatıb və yazıçıların adi insanlardan daha dəli, çılğın və anormal olduqlarını, ən əsası ideallaşdırdığımız kimi olmadıqlarını vurğulayıb. Dedi-qodu formasında yazılıb. Vaxt itkisidir. Vaxt itkisi olmasa belə, pul verib almağa dəyməz.

    24. Bu puanı kitabın kendi kalitesinden çok elimdeki baskının kalitesine veriyorum. Çeviri kötü, bin tane hata var, baskı özensiz. Bir yerden sonra sadece göz gezdirdim kitaba, o da sırf bitirmeden bırakmış olmamak için.

    25. Скандальная и увлекательная - таблоид в твердом переплете. Одна из тех книг, которая обязательно должна быть в школьной программе, чтобы привить ученикам любовь к литературе, но которая никогда там не окажется.

    26. ситурно е достоверна. Причина? Защото, ,,тайният" им живот не е толкова шокиращ Освен Уилям Бъроуз!!!! Поздрав!!! youtube/watch?v=1Pfd3O - Бъроуз и Кобейн

    27. Salacious or irreverent? Over-the-top or merely saucy? Your reaction to “Secret Lives of Great Authors” will largely hinge on your own perspective of how we should view the so-called “great writers.” (The 41 authors are so well known that you recognize them by their last names—Shakespeare, Poe, Tolstoy, Woolf, Kafka, Sartre, Hemingway, Salinger, etc.) Does a book like this increase your empathy for these authors as folks who are just like us with their share of human foibles? Or does i [...]
