M-a frapat partea legată de scenariul apocaliptic - axa Pământului se schimbă, ne vom scufunda precum Atlantida, șamd. Parcă am mai auzit asta undeva... Ceva cu mayașii parcă? Hehe.

O carte foarte scurtă, foarte bună, foarte Eliade- adică reușește să vorbească despre misticism, yoga, și India printr-o întâmplare plină de suspans, în care păstrează un limbaj plastic și totodată limpede. Asta spre deosebire de majoritatea scriitorilor/adepților misticismului de azi, care pică în ridicol una-două,

Curious tales in the classic supernatural mode. India here is mystical than usual, seen through the eyes of westerners, who look for profoundness even in the simple act of a plebeian sitting near a river.

o capodopera. eliade ma fascineaza, fiind unul dintre putinii autori romani capabili sa imi capteze atentia total iar cu ,,Secretul doctorului Honigberger" reuseste sa faca asta fara cel mai mic efort.
This book was a Christmas gift from my friends in Romania. The author was a gifted Romanian, one who possessed a flair for the occult and a writing style that is rich and formal. I couldn't put the book down.

Hadn't read anything like this before, just devoured it in one sitting. Wonderfully crafted mysteries with a dose of eastern mysticism.
the mysteries of yoga and tantra in a fictional framework by one of the most interesting and profound thinkers on religion.

made me want to visit india and think about a dimensional life in such a traditional way .. it's amazing
povestiri cu suspans, dar incheiate cu o explicatie mistica/orientala vagă
