Sep 23, Terry Sheehan rated it it was amazing. What a gem!! Sep 20, Christian Engler rated it it was amazing.

Blue, a Catholic novella, by Myles Connolly, is a very unique work of fiction and one that I thoroughly found pleasure in, because it portrays the adherence of faith and doctrine not as an obligation that bit-by-bit brings about mental burdensome affliction, but rather, it is presented as an exciting chllange that goes against the current social and political tide of what popular culture deems to be in vogue or the right way.

It is a short work of nervy fiction that not only goes against the Mr. It is a short work of nervy fiction that not only goes against the flow of what is thought to be acceptable in an age of thoughtless go-and-get-it modernism, but it addresses the core of ourselves and the very small universe which we temporarily occupy.

Through Mr. Blue's religious unearthing of the one-and-only ultimate truth-Holy Church-a new freedom is thus discovered and hence, fully embraced, which in turn redefines life and living-with all its tumultuous struggles and assorted agonies, as something mysteriously beautiful and special.

Blue was written in , three years after F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote the incomparable literary classic, The Great Gatsby. And the paralles, especially in characterization, between the two works are indeed quite amazing, and yet, the novella Mr.

Blue, never received the full global attention that The Great Gatsby eventually did. It remained in the shadows, like a relic, whose message was deemed only for an antiquated bygone period.

Perhaps it was so, because it conveyed a message that no one wanted to hear or were too afraid to live out. For gluttony and self-indulgence, if allowed to happen, can indeed destroy the God-given gifts of character, ethics and religious and moral conviction, et cetera, et cetera.

In Connolly's novel, Mr. Blue is an aberration, an anomaly for the bulk of those who bear witness to what he utters and lives out: goodness, sacrifices, an uncompromising faith, the gem of suffering and full understanding that there is one who knows, one who went before all of us.

And Mr. Blue is blatant in his expression of that fact, that Jesus the Christ: " When God became man, he made you and me and the rest of us pretty important people.

He not only redemmed us, he saved us from the terrible burden of infinity. Perhaps the greatest example of living out the religious life as a lay person was the very author himself-Myles Connolly-a former Hollywood screenwriter who never deviated from the gem of Truth within himself.

In a way, he held up the mirror to ourselves and showed us that indeed, we, all humanity, in a compliance to that joyful and painful Truth, have a little of Mr.

Blue in us, too; we're just not aware of it yet. Mar 09, Liz rated it really liked it Shelves: zmmm-challenge. It is a toss-up for me between 3 and 4 stars Blue did strike a cord in me.

I should have guessed that this was a religious book because it is a Loyola Classic and was part of Em's high school reading It did help with my own journey into the Catholic faith - since the journey will always be continuous.

I don't think that I could follow the footsteps of Mr. Blue - live in poverty and fi It is a toss-up for me between 3 and 4 stars Blue - live in poverty and find happiness.

I would, however, like to emulate Mr. Blue in finding happiness in whatever situation I am in. I was particularly drawn in with Mr. Blue's proposed tombstone inscription - Never was there a worse sinner, And never was God kinder to one.

I have read that somewhere before Either way, the premise of the book was extremely thought-provoking and helpful to me personally.

Jun 09, Lawrence Lam rated it it was amazing. This is a great novella that has unfortunately been out of print for some time, despite the back cover saying it has been in print for decades.

Its audience has likely been fenced in to " Catholic" audiences but it is not a Catholic book. This has appeal to anyone who enjoys the natural beauty of the world and delights in regular human experience.

Blue personifies the ideal optimist, smiling and extracting childlike joy from the mundane to the absurd. Connolly has given us a reminder of how much This is a great novella that has unfortunately been out of print for some time, despite the back cover saying it has been in print for decades.

Connolly has given us a reminder of how much fun life can still be in spite of our hardships and sufferings and personifies in Blue a credible example of one who can embrace even those things.

In this book there are beautiful viewpoints worth revisiting today, 86 years since publication…presented teasingly from a distance, as even the narrator distances himself from Blue's opinions, but the radicalism of such crazy ideas just might be the sanest pill for today's culture.

Jul 27, John Pappas rated it liked it. Connolly's J. Blue, a "holy fool", is the antithesis of Jay Gatsby. When he receives his fortune, he does not seek to mingle with other rich and famous people, nor gain full admittance to the elite social world of the rich.

Instead, he gives most of it away, burning through millions in order to follow the example of St. Francis and Jesus, but in Boston and New York.

Blue refuses to accept compromise and never conforms to the values, mores and roles society and the narrator expect of him.

His n Connolly's J. His naked sincerity and total commitment alternately impress and terrify the narrator. Both the character of Blue and this novel are very didactic and strange, but no more so than the relentless pursuit of money that strikes most contemporaries of Connolly as normal and worthy.

Mar 13, Pamg rated it really liked it. I first read Mr. Blue almost 50 years ago. I adored it with the passion that is only possible in an idealistic 12 year old and read it, wept over it, multiple times before age and cynicism finally claimed me.

The beat down copy from that era is still tucked away someplace safe where I could grab it quick in the event of natural or unnatural disaster.

That said, it has been many years since I opened it, and my life has meandered far from that 60s-flavored Christian ideal, and my memories of youth I first read Mr.

That said, it has been many years since I opened it, and my life has meandered far from that 60s-flavored Christian ideal, and my memories of youthful Catholic idealism and the wonderful priest who introduced us to Mr.

Blue have been tarnished not only by my own failure to live up to those ideals but by the sad and bad failures of the Church itself. Hence the four star rating for a book I really did find amazing.

Maybe it's time to pull it out again. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Readers also enjoyed. Literary Fiction. About Myles Connolly.

Columbus died in chains. Joan or Arc was burned at the stake. Let us all live snugly -- and life will soon be little more than a thick, gelatinous stream of comfortability and ignorance.

The art that would do that tomorrow, he maintained, was the art of the motion picture. Then came the printed word to spread confusion, to throw a twilight over the world in which men became little more than shadows chasing shadows.

But now, we have a new art, luminous, vivid, simple, stirring, persuasive, direct, universal, illimitable—the animated picture. It can create a new people, gracious and graceful, sensitive, kindly, religious, a people discovering in beauty the happiest revelation of God.

No art has ever had the future the motion picture has. If it fails, no art shall have had as great and lamentable a failure.

He is a young man in New England who takes the commands of Jesus seriously, to sell everything you have and give to the poor, to forsake the normal path of security and comfort for a greater purpose.

Blue to Jay Gatsby. To me, Blue just seems incomplete. Dec 18, Lenny rated it really liked it Shelves: read. A story about a selfless man with a beautiful outlook on God, love, and the world around us.

A lot could be learned from a man named Blue. This is really really boring. Oct 16, Graychin rated it it was ok. There are a few good passages, mostly toward the beginning.

But it reads too much like a notebook Connolly might have kept for a novel he wanted to write but never really got around to. Connolly indulges in some cheap moves.

He does a lot of telling us, adjectivally, what kind of person Blue is, but not a lot of showing. The narrator is problematic in a similar way.

Jan 02, Clement rated it it was amazing. Myles Connolly's book Mr. Blue is a strange little book. I originally gave this four stars thinking in my mind that it deserved three and a half but, after a few days, I still haven't been able to get certain passages from Mr.

Blue or the reckless enthusiasm, passion, and dreams of the main character, J. Blue, out of my mind.

In retrospect, I think, the problem is that I wanted J. Blue, the character, to be a perfect manifestation of Christ or of what I think a saint should be right from the s Myles Connolly's book Mr.

Blue, the character, to be a perfect manifestation of Christ or of what I think a saint should be right from the start of the novel but, Connolly frustratingly and, ultimately, rightly makes him so human.

Blue's reckless enthusiasm, passion, joy, and dreams are not only admirable but, also contagious and desirable; however, his lack of responsibility, little petty selfish moments, and his critical nature in the early chapters of the book were so frustrating but, perhaps that's because Connolly knew and was trying to detail the winding journey it takes to become a saint, the how of J.

Blue's reckless enthusiasm, passion, joy, and dreams ultimately bearing saintly fruit in a practical humble manifestation that actually demonstrates Christ's love as seen in the last chapters of the novel.

Blue is a book I will revisit someday, if only just for J. Blue's awesome science-fiction motion picture plot idea that he shares in the third chapter of the novel to the novel's narrator, and, for the fact that it has made me wrestle, I've now given it five stars.
