Due giovani amanti. Una camera da letto. La notte, che distende la sua coltre di buio e silenzio. Lui vorrebbe dirle che è finita, che la loro relazione è giunta al capolinea, ma non trova le parole. Lei si prende amorevolmente cura di lui, gli offre le sue carezzevoli nudità. Entrambi si lasciano andare voluttuosamente, fumano dell’erba. All’improvviso ha inizio per lui u...more

Recommends it for: the cast of Degrassi when they graduate to Lifetime movies of the week
Recommended to Mariel by: I'm too bored to remember
I didn't care about this book. This guy gets high instead of breaking up with his girlfriend. It reminded me of watching someone else play a video game. Or reading a pamphlet about the effects of hallucinogenic drugs. Or reading a pamphlet about a man who doesn't know what he wants. If he had it he'd stare at it in his hands and say to the waitress, whose phone number sits forgotten in his pocket from just five minutes before, "I didn't order this." I didn't care. If you tried to define the word...more

Péter Nádas (1942) è oggi annoverato tra i più importanti scrittori ungheresi contemporanei. Ha vinto numerosi premi, soprattutto in area mitteleuropea, e negli ultimi anni è stato costantemente sul punto di vincere il Nobel per la letteratura. Ma il riconoscimento internazionale è relativamente recente, e giunge dopo lunghi anni nei quali la sua produzione era ignorata in patria. All’inizio della sua carriera letteraria, d’altro canto, il rifiuto di collaborare con i ser...more

A reflection from the inside of time withheld, suspended, frozen, like a photographer's image, in which my wife, jokingly, kept asking 'Eva' -- 'Yes, dear' -- 'What time is it?' -- 'It's half past twelve, dear'.

But this joke is not so far from the truth. The sheer interior monologue fills up pages and pages (about 100) in which time does not seem to move. Is he making fun of Proust or honouring him?

Te lang durende bespiegelingen van een man onder invloed van wiet. Elke seconde wordt minitiuus beschreven. De angst van de hoofdpersoon om de werkelijkheid te verliezen is beklemmend, maar door het circulaire karakter van de stream of consciousness wordt het verhaal eerder saai dan spannend, en het einde is een sof.

Recommends it for: some*only.
"It would be nice to decide what belongs to imagination and what to reality."
"My story is stripped down to its bare essentials: between existence and nonexistence.
"I'd like to believe in wat i m seeing! But do I really see what I see, or merely imagine that I do?"
*interesting like a bad drug trip.

I would rather smoke marijuana myself than read about someone else's interior experiences (because nothing is really happening, I think) while high. Oh, and I don't even enjoy marijuana.
Chris
A superb descriptive and intense writing style, however a rather weak and disturbing story.
Lindsay
This seemed to be a dramatic story of drug use, not love.
Jehan
Thoughtful, but also an extremely tiring read.
