Ο Κανέτι στην αυτοβιογραφία του ''Πάρτι και αερομαχίες'' περιγράφει με αιχμηρή ειλικρίνεια καταστάσεις και πρόσωπα που τον συνόδεψαν στην προσωπική του ζωή. Παρόλο που το μεγαλύτερο μέρος των ανθρώπων που περιγράφονται, καθώς στην αρχή και ο ίδιος ο συγγραφέας μου ήταν άγνωστοι, η κομψή αλλά και σκληρή του γλώσσα με έκανε να μην θέλω να σταματήσω την ανάγνωση. Στο μέλλον σίγουρα θα διαβάσω και άλλα έργα του ίδιου συγγραφέα!

The book is a page-turner. Elias Canetti wrote about those years he had spent in Great Britain during World War II and just after it. He brought whole gallery of people he had met in London and towns where he lived in after he had to leave London cause of Luftwaffe bombings.
Βάζω 3 αστέρια γιατί το συγκεκριμένο βιβλίο περιγράφει την εμπειρία του Κανετι από την ζωή του στην Αγγλία. Θα μου άρεσε να διάβαζα κάτι άλλο του ίδιου (την "Τύφλωση" ή το "Μάζα και εξουσία") για να κατανοήσω τον συγγραφέα καλύτερα. Το ύφος του και το γράψιμο του Κανετι γενικά μου άρεσαν και ακόμα και στο "Πάρτι και Αερομαχίες" το βιβλίο κυλούσε αβίαστα.

If you don't like T.S. Eliot, Iris Murdoch, Wittgenstein, Herbert Read, Bertrand Russell or brits in general, this is the book for you. Hard to believe there was so much ill will in one person. He finally put it all down, just before he died--probably the best time to vent.
A warning: unless you have interests in or animosity towards Brit intellectual life of the 40-50, this could be a bore.
Non se lo meritava Canetti, che gli facessero questo scherzo. E chi l'ha amato non dovrebbe leggere questo libro: perché non ne ha bisogno, Canetti ci ha già lasciato tutto quello che avremmo dovuto sapere, e perché, forse, lo amerebbe un po' di meno.

Canetti was an egoist, but he has come stories to tell. I loved the old-London atmosphere that pervades it. The tale of the Scottish Laird and his wife and their Parisian dresses is worth the price alone.
