Anđeli će samo zaspati: napisala Merita Arslani


Vidjela sam na kiosku ovu knjigu i odmah sam je kupila iz više razloga, primjerica lijepa naslovnica, nagrada Kiklop i činjenica kako ju je napisala mlada spisateljica, a mislim kako treba poticati naše mlade spisateljske snage...No, moram priznati kako me razočarala u popriličnoj mjeri, a nije da sam očekivala neko remek djelo, ali jednostavno očekivala sam više ili veću količinu spisateljskog talenta.

Ideja, koncept što već priče mi je zanimljiv ( mladu ženu anđeo priprema na smrt)  iako se ne može reći kako nije već viđen. Radnja se jako sporo odvija, likovi su nezamljivi, a glavni lik mi je poprilično iritantan, ono nešto malo filozofskih misli se stalno ponavlja i ponavlja, a zaista nema ničega za zadržati pažnju ili puno toga oko čega bi se moglo zamisliti, svakako ničega što bi prominjenilo vaše viđenje svijeta.

Jedina iznimka među suhoparnim likovima mi je Danijel, taj anđeo, i to u određenim djelovima, inače i on kao lik pun je nelogičnosti, npr. mrtav je već 32 godine, a po svemu se čini generacijski blizak nama, ostavio je curu jer je htio putovati s svijetom s ekipom, igrati paintball (a toga je bilo tada?) itd....

Ne znam opisati kako je pisanje suhoparno, to je nekakav stvarno hrvatski bez okusa i mirisa. Dijalozi jako loše i neprirodno zvuče, to mi je još i najgori dio...a nikad im kraja, često o istim stvarima. 

Kao što rekoh, divna naslovnica, a cijena samog romana je bila niska, danas se ne sjećam gdje mi stoji u kući, ali barem ju je lijepo vidjeti.

Tako, moje je mišljenje kako netko jednostavno ne zna pisati ili možda zna pisati, ali ne razini na koju sam navikla. Međutim, kad bi imala više dara za pisanje, mislim kako bi napisala zanimljivu knjigu...Moguće je da bi uz dobrog urednika ova knjiga zaista bila dobro, ali i to je ako....

Može se osjetiti maštivost negdje u konceptu, ali nije realizirana, isto tako može se nasluti toplina negdje u ovoj romanu, tu i tamo ima čak i ponešto humora, ali daleko od toga da me dirnula ova ljudska priča...jednostavno previše nedostataka u formi.

The Lagoon, a short story by Joseph Conrad (book review and recommendation)

Published in 1987, this story is one of the shortest works by Joseph Conrad. Like many of Conrad's other works, The Lagoon is a framed narrative. Before I continue this review, and explain what the book is about, there is something I need to comment on. Most publishers and sites I've come across describe Lagoon as a story about a white man called Tuan, but I personally can't agree with that description. 
This short story doesopen up with a white man, but the story is really, for most part, about the man's Malaysian friend Arsat. Perhaps the most accurate thing to say is that the story is about both of them.  Another thing worth noting is that we never do learn the name of the white man. Tuan is just a word that means 'sir' in the native language of the inhabitans. When other characters address the narrator as Tuan, they are calling him 'mister' or 'sir'.




The opening lines of The Lagoon are quite descriptive, not only setting the tone but introduc…

All the King's Men,a novel by Robert Penn Warren ( Book Review and Recommendation)

THE DARING INTRODUCTION THAT REVEALS A BRILLIANT WRITING TALENT
All the King’s Men opens sharply, throwing the reader into the midst of things. Jack Burden, a young ex-reporter/ writer, a guy who walked out on his PhD, finds himself in the service of Willie, a raising political force. Willie, whose background doesn’t promise a successful politician, but who is ready to fight against the odds. Jack is there by Willie’s side, not because of the money, not because of the power, not because of anything like that. Why is Jack there? Jack isn’t sure himself. It is a complex question, one that keeps popping through the novel, one that gets answered many times and yet remains open to interpretations. Willie, who is commonly called the boss, says that it is because it is in Jack’s nature? Is it so? But what kind of nature are we talking about?
THE NARRATOR OF THE STORY IS OFTEN THE FORCE BEHIND THE EVENTS
Jack Burden is, true to his surname, a burdened man. Burdened with both his and his future p…

BOOK REVIEW: THE TIME OF INDIFFERENCE, A NOVEL BY ALBERTO MORAVIA

Finally the time has come for me to sit down and prepare a review of one of Moravia's book. The Time of Indifference is a beautiful and complex novel. I read and reviewed this book last year, but for some reason I forgot to review it here as well. My review will be very similar to the one I have already shared on goodreads, I'm just going to add up a bit of commentary. Reflecting on this book gives me great joY, because it is truly a fascinating novel. I'm a big fan of this Italian writer. Moravia was,  in my opinion, an excellent novelist, one of the best. His portrayal of characters is always very human but at the same time very detailed and precise. In many ways, Moravia reminds me of great Russian novelists. Psychological realism is definitely one of my favourite genres. Anyhow,  I listened to an audio version of Gli Indifferenti, so I don't have photographs of this book. I do have photographs I took of another Moravia's book, so I decided to use those ones fo…
