Çok iyi bir başlangıç yapıp, ortalara doğru bocalayan; finaliyle batırıp bir hışımla televizyonu kapattığınız ya da sinema salonundan çıkarken "Buna mı para verdim?" diye söylendiğiniz ortalama bir Hollywood aksiyon filmi gibiydi, Hanna'yı Beklerken.
Tek fark bunun bir kitap olması. Sloven edebiyatı üstelik. İlginç.

Adını dahi bilmediğimiz esas adamı sevdim. Ama sayfalar ilerledikçe başlarda sıra dışı gelen bu karakter biraz sıradanlaştı. Konu bazen su gibi aktı, bazen yolunu bulamadı.

Superb! The protagonist is dangerous: creepy, violent, a murderer. However, his internal dialog makes you laugh-out-loud at unexpected times. His complicated yet fragile nature evokes pity despite his violence. There is an underlying current of Good and Evil - and the reader is left to contemplate whether one exists solely without the other.

Really great, lots of fun, worth the smallish print and narrow margins; I wouldn't mind seeing more books featuring our nameless hero. It's a very good thing that my friend sent this book to me to borrow, my library and its partners have nothing to offer from this worthy author.

Mladost ima dve utvari: prva je, da začenja na novo in ni nadaljevanje prejšnjih življenj; druga pa, da lahko zadeve pušča odprte.

A lot is going on here which is good. There are so many well written moments. I finished this about a week ago and am still trying to figure out if I liked it, which in a weird way says a lot about the book. It was definitely worth the time I spent reading it.

My friend Tammy is responsible for publishing this book in the US. With her help, I was able to meet and talk with the author. If you're looking to gain a different perspective on the world, try reading Miha's books.

Sama vsebina me ni navdušila, je pa pripoved odlično napisana.
