Bayangkan … ada orang yang memiliki kekuatan istimewa untuk memengaruhi pikiran dan perasaan kita saat kita membaca buku. Mereka bukanlah penulis yang bukunya sedang dibaca, melainkan para Lector—anggota perkumpulan rahasia. Mereka bisa menggoda kita dengan cerita mengagumkan, menjadikan dunia yang ada dalam buku terasa begitu nyata. Namun, mereka juga bisa menjerumuskan k ...more

When evaluating a book, or indeed any sort of artistic expression, the first and often unconscious step is establishing the thresholds or criteria against which it should be fairly judged. Not all plays ought be held against the standard of Shakespeare, nor all novels Dostoevsky. From the moment you first pick up a book, thoughtfully heft its weight in your hand, absorb the cover art and typeface, and casually skim the publisher blurbs and reviewer call-quotes, you begin a process of shaping exp ...more
I really wanted to like this book more than I did. The concept is so original and I am a great lover of books. I believe that books do have power for their readers. Making this more than metaphor within a fantasy context is ingenious.

I loved the way the paranormal reading experience is described. We get into the minds of the characters as they are exercising their abilities. I would have liked more engagement with the specific texts. I wanted to know more about how the particular books played th

Certo che è così facile rimanere delusi da un libro dalle alte aspettative, pompato dall'editore come un nuovo trascendentale talento contemporaneo!

Che accozzaglia di nefandezze, gente! Credo che la cosa che mi rimarrà impressa di questo libro (?) sia solo "[Il Protagonista] unisce le mani con uno scrocchio", ripetuto credo qualche decina di volte qua e là per il libro. Probabilmente in Danimarca hanno problemi di artrite molto seri, sarà il freddo.

Fatto sta che a me ad ogni scrocchio mi aumenta

It was an okay-book, but I expected more from it. The cover was SO promising - Is it possible to die for reading? As a total book nerd I wanted to scream "yes!", grab this book and read it at once.

Okay, it might be exactly what I did. And though I enjoyed the idea (seriously, The Library of Shadows? Existing next to us for more than 2400 years? What could be more exciting?!), the book felt very flat. All of the characters felt flat and kinda one-sided and I couldn't associate myself with them. A

Mungkin saya termasuk salah satu orang yang tidak bisa lepas dari buku. Buku adalah penghibur, pembuka jendela ilmu, penuntun khayalan yang tak berbatas, sampai yang sederhana: sebagai pengisi waktu saat harus menunggu atau mengantri.

Tapi bagaimana jika kegiatan membaca buku ternyata tidak sekadar menikmati sebuah cerita? Bagaimana jika buku yang kaubaca keras-keras bisa memengaruhi orang yang mendengarnya hingga mau menuruti keinginanmu? Sebaliknya, bagaimana jika kau, sebagai pendengar, bisa m
What a great book! I got it for Christmas and I'm not even sure what I thought it was about, but I was very wrong.

It's well-written, although the language isn't perhaps always the most interesting, but the characters are believable and there are some fantastic descriptions. What really sells the whole thing is that it's about BOOKS!

Let me put it like this:
What if reading was a superpower? What if by reading out loud you could change people's experience of a story, enhance their emotions and ev

Buku memang mempunyai kekuatan yang dapat menjadi dahsyat. Buku dapat membawa kita bahagia, marah, sedih, hingga tergugu bercucuran air mata. Buku bahkan dapat membawa kita melompat menjadi bagian dari plot cerita sebagai pelaku. Buku tertentu pun dapat membuat kita serasa ingin cepat-cepat mengetahui akhir cerita sekaligus berlambat-lambat menahan diri karena tak ingin segera berpisah.

Oh my god I adored this book. How it only has an average of three stars is beyond me. I do not think I have ever read a crime/thriller book before (I'm not really counting The Da Vinci Code in this). This was gripping, it was suspenseful and it draws you in like no other. Given the content of the book it was amazing that it had a hold over me. It would be a disappointment if a book of this nature, about this kind of thing was uninteresting and could be put down, but this I had to drag myself awa ...more

To my surprise, this book turned out to be a fantasy! The plot is about a fight between two groups of readers with superpower or Lectors.

The protagonist is a lawyer with no interest in book business until his father, a well-respected shopowner, died (murdered). He inherits the shop and discovers a new secret world, in which reading has the power to alter people's mind. Lectors were divided into 2 groups after an incident in his family. And now, when they were close to unite again, violent actio

buku yang berbeda dari buku yang ada selama ini, buku yang bercerita tentang buku. dan buku yang seakan ditulis olah seorang pembaca, bukan seorang penulis seperti yang kita temukan pada buku-buku kebanyakan.

mengapa buku ini ditulis oleh seorang pembaca? karena pencerita mampu 'menggenggam' pembaca dan mempertahankan na untuk tetap mengikuti bacaan yang ada di hadapan na. seakan memahami sungguh dimana titik bosan atau titik lelah pembaca dan ketika pembaca siap untuk menutup bu

Questo romanzo è una cretinata a trecentosessanta gradi. Nonostante il tema affrontato sia assai diverso, probabilmente per il tipo di scrittura Birkegaard si è ispirato a Dan Brown o a Faletti. O meglio, a Dan Brown o a Faletti quando andavano in prima elementare, ammesso e non concesso che l’abbiano mai frequentata. Personalmente, dati i successivi risultati letterari, propendo per il no. Figuratevi dunque cosa può essere lo stile.

Anche a voler tentare un minimo di commento, almeno sui contenu

This story was absolutely AMAZING! Also fascinating, spell-binding and heart-poundingly gripping. This is Mr. Birkegaard's first novel and I sincerely hope that we will be treated to another book very soon. It's an outstanding story in which I found myself avidly involved and the postulations are not that far-fetched. By that I mean when I read a book ~ especially one that's got my undivided attention ~ it very much plays like a movie. But that's all I'll say.

Toute personne passionnée par les livres s’est sans aucun doute posé, un jour, la question du pouvoir de la lecture. Et si elle était capable d’emporter les gens bien plus loin qu’ils ne le pensent ? Et de créer des évènements aussi terribles qu’inexplicables.
Dans la libraire des ombres, Mikkel Birkegaard nous emmène dans un monde fascinant, où certains personnages ont des capacités qui leur permettent d’influencer la perception des autres lorsqu’ils lisent, un pouvoir tout simplement exceptionn

Very entertaining thriller about books as magic. Set mostly in today's Copenhagen and featuring Lectors who really transform books and reading into magic, the novel is a page turner with very endearing characters and a very clean and readable style.

Fairly predictable in plot and with without too many nuances, heroes being heroic and villains being villainous so to speak, the novel succeeds because of its "book worship" setting and the endearing characters.

Highly recommended for any book lover a

„Imprevizibilă. Da, acesta e cuvântul potrivit. Suspans, mult, mult suspans, răsturnări de situații, personaje pe care îți vine să le strângi de gât câteodată. O lectură ușoară, dar superbă. Citind, nu mai eram eu și cartea, era doar textul care mi se revărsa prin toată ființa, eram doar litere, cuvinte, fraze.”

Masih ingatkah kita akan pengalaman masa kecil ketika kita sedang dibacakan cerita oleh orang tua kita ? Tentunya sangat mengasikan karena biasanya kita akan terpukau oleh ceritanya sehingga kita seolah-olah berada dalam kisah yang sedang kita dengar itu.

Namun pernahkah terpikirkan oleh kita bahwa sebuah buku yang dibacakan akan memberi pengaruh yang lebih dahsyat lagi? Bukan hanya sekedar memukau pendengarnya dan menjadikan apa yang ada dalam buku terasa begitu nyata melainkan dapat mempengaruh

Judul : Libri di Luca
Penulis : Mikkel Birkegaard
Penerbit : Serambi Ilmu Semesta
Cetakan : I, November 2009
Tebal : 588 hlm
Dari abad ke abad buku terus menerus dihasilkan dan dibaca. Tak jarang buku dibakar dan penulisnya ditumpas. Toh buku terus ada. Tak ada jegalan yang mampu menghalangi lahirnya dan dimaknainya sebuah buku. Inilah yang menarik dari novel Libri di Luca; sebuah novel yang mengisahkan buku yang terus bicara.

Esperava mais, mas o autor criou uma teoria muito interessante, nunca antes vista. Dou-lhe pontos pela originalidade. (

A Biblioteca das Sombras sempre foi um livro, que desde o seu lançamento, me suscitou muito interesse. Como uma verdadeira bibliófila, um livro que fale sobre livros exerce um grande fascínio sobre mim. Embora sejam poucas as obras com esta temática, que já tenha lido, é certo também que nunca consigo resistir aos mesmos.
Por isso mesmo,

Caramba! uma pessoa lê a sinopse dum livro que com 50% de desconto, consulta o Goodreads para ver a classificação e a opinião das outras pessoas, repara que, dos seus amigos nenhum leu o livro e acaba por arriscar. E depois, em vez de despachar as coisas que tem para fazer num determinado domingo, fica no sofá umas horas seguidas a acabar de ler o livro simplesmente porque não o consegue largar. Sim, isto foi o que me aconteceu com este livro.

Ésta novela nos presenta, con algunas pinceladas de ficcion y efectos especiales, lo que ya es sabido por todos los bibliofilos: el poder de los libros. Como todos sabemos, siempre se ha prohibido su lectura, se han ocultado y hasta quemados ' todo esto por el temor sabido del poder que tienen los libros sobre quienes los leen.

Când ne gândim la literatura nordică, ne vine în minte mai întâi genul poliţist sobru, bine construit, de apreciat prin modul în care revigorează un domeniu intens speculat. Aşa că atunci când am început romanul Biblioteca umbrelor, mă aşteptam la un thriller de acest gen, deşi celălalt roman al lui Mikkel Birkegaard, Condamnat la moarte, se remarca printr-o structură vizibil diferită – fără a fi dark, Condamnat la moarte reuşea să îmbine armonios suspansul tipic unei cărţi poliţiste cu fluidita ...more
