Amintiri din copilarie. Cu o singura precizare: baiatul, un evreu polonez, traieste intr-un lagar din Siberia si nu tine minte sa fi cunoscut vreodata o viata mai blanda. Si totusi, in ochii lui incap frumusetea, curajul, admiratia, prietenia, mici bucurii inocente, cum ar fi procurarea unui tricou de marinar, sau mari bucurii, ca tainuirea unei Biblii. Iar cand mama lui g ...more

BELLA E LE BESTIE
Che ci fa Pietia Champagnerossovic, figlio dello champagne rosso, perché sua madre lo aveva concepito dopo averne bevuto, Pietia che aveva due splendidi cigni bianchi negli occhi, che ci fa in quel posto dove si vive solo di fame?
E che ci fa sua madre Bella in un posto dove se muori, ma non hai scontato tutta la condanna, non torni a essere libero di essere sepolto in una bara fabbricata col cuore, ma rimani un prigioniero e come tale sei sepolto senza nome e senza tomba insiem

Povestea în sine este înduioșătoare, dar stilul narațiunii nu m-a mișcat. Este foarte probabil că dacă aş fi mai religioasă m-aş fi ataşat mai mult de această carte, dar nu sunt. Merită totuși citită pentru a-ţi crea o idee despre dificultăţile unei copilării în Siberia ca inamic al Unuinii Sovietice.

J’avais craqué sur ce livre lors d’une de mes nombreuses visites chez Virgin… (Entre parenthèse qu’est ce que ça me manque…), mais je n’avais pas pris le temps de le lire. C’éra una Volta a choisi ce livre dans ma PAL, pour le challenge livra’deux pour Pal’addict, auquel on participe toutes les deux en binôme, et par conséquent, le mal est réparé, j’ai enfin pu découvrir ce court roman autobiographique.

Ce livre est un petit bijou à découvrir, il est construit à la façon d’un recueil de nouvelles

Ce livre est une partition de souvenirs d’un enfant de 8 ans – Petia – vivant dans l’enfer blanc du Goulag, plus précisément dans la région de Kolyma célèbre pour ses camps de travails soviétique qui furent légion durant la période stalinienne.
On se prend d’affection pour cet enfant imaginatif et artiste dans l’âme. Sa mère, Beauté, fait penser à certain de ces saints catholiques, résigné face à la souffrance et à la douleur. L’enfant et sa mère forme un couple puissant et véritablement intéres

This is a book I really liked. You can feel the emotions floating through the pages, the anger, the pain and the resentment.
I find that the end is interesting, has a twist but that it's a bit rushed, maybe?
All in all I enjoyed the book.

Piotr Bednarski was born in 1934 in Horeszkowce, a town in Eastern Poland invaded by the Soviets in September 1939.
