Son zamanlarda okuduğum en zorlayıcı ve zevksiz kitaplardan biri oldu. Kitabın uzun ve serbest bilinç akışı yöntemi ile yazılmış olmadı okunurluğu azaltıyor.

Yazar kendi hayatından kesitleri gerçeklerle harmanlayarak, farklı şehirlerde geçen hayatını ve kitabını nasıl yazdığını anlatıyor.

It was thrilling. It was absolute drivel. I can't talk about it. Let me tell you everything about it. Wonderful. Awful. There is no sense in it. There is a whole world of sense in it. I can't explain how thrilling it is. I can't describe how maddeningly boring it is. I only skimmed a few pages. I read the whole books many times.

Il y a comme trois livres en un ; il y a beaucoup de choses et c'était à la fois intéressant et agréable. Seul sentiment négatif : le possible dévoilement de traits de personnalité, d'anecdotes, de point ...more

Flawed, with brilliant passages interspersed with more mundane ones.

Great book! Great author! Major journey of mind, senses, consciousness...all in one place.

Brilliant, wide-eyed in its scope, the best book I've read about writing so far. Sign me up for more Handke.
