I opened ‘Wetlands’ expecting something terrible. Charlotte Roche – Heldin meiner Jugend – schreibt ein Buch und ich muss es lesen!
She whiles away the time by plotting to get her divorced parents back together, sharing with the reader her many fetishes, most of which are fairly gross, and spreading her own bacteria from various intimate parts of her body around the hospital I listened to this in German as an audiobook and was thankful that it wasn’t likely anyone overhearing would understand. This book is about an 18 year old girl with some very unconventional views on hygiene to say the least.
You are eating – seriously. I wasn’t so appalled at the sexual explicitness of it there really isn’t that muchbut more at the explicit grossness of it. Why do we cry until tears stream down our faces and into our mouths but shudder at the thought of letting snot do the same? In Germany, Feuchtgebiete caused a huge hype when it first came out and was hailed by some — most of all, by Charlotte Roche herself — as the arrival of a new generation of feminists, but more or less ferociously criticised by others.
I’m embarrassed that I got sucked in by the chatter: And even more, I loved that Helen was in control of her sexuality, and having all the sex she wanted, when she wanted, with a thirst for the feeling part of life that she was determined to slake her own way — and that way was through her nearly shameless embracing of sex and her sexuality.
Ich kann dem Buch nichts abgewinnen. I finally understood the blurb on the front that compared this novel to ‘Catcher in the Rye’. Ten years ago, when this book was first published, everyone was talking about it.
Feuchtgebiete by Charlotte Roche
It’s about our relationship with our environment, and our relationship with our past, and leaving that past behind. Notify me of new comments via email. Notify me of new posts via email. I would love to read a book which pushes these boundaries and truly explores what it means to be a woman today; however Wetlands is not this book. Think not for this, however, the poor treason Of my stout blood against my staggering brain, I shall remember you with love, or season My scorn with pity, —let me make it plain: Du musst menstruieren, zonss sie auch menstruiert.
Someone had to do it! It’s not really a tale, so much as a glimpse into a disturbed soul. She was in control. It isn’t so much the sexual exploits that are outrageous as the relationship she has with her own and other people’s fluids, private parts, and most of all bacteria.

A highly weird and entertaining read for those with a strong stomach. As English-language publishers are engaged in a bidding war for Feuchtgebiete, Granta contributing editor Philip Oltermann caught up with Roche for an interview.
She wants love; she wants her parents together. Not minelike a lion cub taking its first forays into game territory: Crazy Helen — I am unsure how to feel about the crazier bits of Helen.
There followed a period where she undertook anything that would shock and offend people — self mutilation in order to paint with blood, drug experiments, or shaving her head. The first line of the book is about hemorrhoids. This eventually leads Helen to sterilize herself as a late teen and nearly kill herself in an attempt to stay in the hospital long enough to bring her parents back together.
The aim is no longer to scandalise the reader with Helen’s lack of hygiene but to open her heart to the world. Dear readers, Do not be deterred by the negative reviews Books by Charlotte Roche. Es wurde verrissen, missverstanden, in den Himmel gelobt und als Befreiungsschlag gefeiert.
And maybe there is bravery in screaming that out to a world that is so keen to keep a guard up. Originally I wanted to write a non-fiction book.
Well, that probably means you aren’t a feminist. From the way you talk about Feuchtgebiete, it sounds more like a manifesto than a novel. Where the narrative learns you sic that life is a pile of shite, and then But, so long as they wipe, aren’t deliberately walking around with dried semen under their fingernails, and don’t ever land in the hospital because the complete stranger who usually shaves their anus is unavailable one day, leading them to cut themselves in a delicate area that quickly becomes infected – you have done a splendid job.
Yes, there could have been better ways to break through the barriers of these taboo subjects, but I think Roche is successful in treating these subjects as everyday occurances – though perhaps in a rather exagerrated fashion. As to the beginning: There were some parts that actually had me laughing out loud though, kind of in a Laurie Notaro-ridiculousness kind of way.
You don’t have time to finish it in one sitting – if you put it down, it will be a struggle to pick it back up. It’s a pretty good book.
Preview — Feuchtgebiete by Charlotte Roche. You are ill – this book is not soothing, it will not make you feel better. I charltote wanted to like this, but actually it cyarlotte rubbish.
I wanted to write in a creative way about the female body: I know it’s fashionable to like this book, but try as I might, I just couldn’t get excited by it. While other reviewers have dismissed this book as a “gross-out” novel which it is pretty grossI goche quite a bit of merit in it. Helen also likes to eat her own scabs and snot — and all sorts of other things not found on any sort of menu.
I’ll give the book one star just in case something was lost in translation, but the writing was horrible, there is no plot, and is trying to shock just for the cheap shock value. Facebook Twitter Google Pinterest. To ask other readers questions about Feuchtgebieteplease sign up.
