Kes tappis Otto Mülleri? by Birk Rohelend

See on väga hea Agatha Christie traditsioonis, aga kahe jalaga tänases Eestis toimuv kriminull, kirjutatud mõnevõrra filmilikumas stiilis ja mitmesuguste, siiski alati võimalike ja üldiselt usutavate saatuseliinide kokkujooksuna. Eriti tõstaksin esil ...more

Põlgus by Alberto Moravia

Otsest sündmustikku on selles meisterlikus romaanis vähe, ent lehekülgede kaupa ja taandridadeta jätkuvad minategelase eneseanalüüsid ning oma luhtuva abielu lahkamised on sellegipoolest pea sama köitvad kui mõne kriminulli pinev süžee. Romaani algus ...more

Hea dramaturgilise soone ja mõninga koomilise alatooniga tšehhovlik lugu vanast maa-aadlikust, tema keerulisest suguvõsast ja mitmekülgsest teenijaskonnast, ühelt poolt natuke puhast, aga põhjamaiselt vaoshoitud armastust, teiselt paras ports madalam ...more

Kirjad Buenos Airesest by Eia Uus
"Eia ütles kusagil: "Tunnen, et jõudsin selles raamatus lähemale iseenda päris häälele." Mulle tundub ka nii. Hingeline ja puudutav, sümpaatne oma aususes, eufoorias ja kuhtumises, naiivsuses ja kainenemises, aga mitte kunagi küüniline või kalk; autor" Read more of this review »

Quotes by Rein Raud  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Kõik, mis on täiuslik ja vastuoludeta, peab kaduma. Täiuslikuks saamise hetk on tema lõpp-punkt, edasi pole tal enam kohta. Muidugi ei tähenda see, et ta kohe otsa saaks - aga ta sureb paratamatult, elu lahkub temast, ükskõik, kui kaua ta füüsiliselt siin meie keskel ringi ka ei liiguks. Ja see ei ole see täiuslikkus, mida teil enda ümber vaja on, uskuge mind.”
Rein Raud, Hotell Amalfi

“Love springs from the ability to prefer imperfection over perfection.”
Rein Raud, Vend

“For what food is a name if it isn't tied up in a network, connected to faces over the span in time, discovered in the trails that could demarcate the world?”
Rein Raud, Vend

“Enda teha kõik. Ja mitte miski.
Maailm mängib keelte pilliga.
Olla elus - siin on õudset riski;
verd ja higi, puid ja lilli ka.”
Juhan Viiding

“Love of God is pure when joy and suffering inspire an equal degree of gratitude.”
Simone Weil, Gravity and Grace

“A concept is a brick. It can be used to build a courthouse of reason. Or it can be thrown through the window.”
Gilles Deleuze, A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia

“Whenever a theory appears to you as the only possible one, take this as a sign that you have neither understood the theory nor the problem which it was intended to solve.”
Karl Popper

“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”
Albert Camus
