Recommended to Fionnuala by: Who but Rabelais himself
There’s a wonderful scene towards the end of this narrative (which mostly takes place onboard ship during the course of a long sea journey) that caused me as a reader to sit up and take notice of the reading journey I myself was on. Up until then, I had been simply turning the pages in a somewhat automatic fashion as is easy to do in a book that contains a series of stories within stories, anecdotes that propel us onwards at speed from one tall tale to the next so that we scarcely pay attention ...more

Ei mielestäni yhtä eheä kokonaisuus kuin Pantagruelin kolmas kirja, joka pysyy suosikkinani tästä "sarjasta". Tyylillisesti neljännen kirjan matkakertomus vaikuttaa lähestyvän Pantagruelia, siis ensimmäistä, mutta naureskelu kohdistuu pierujen yms. lisäksi uskonnon harjoittamisen muotoihin.

Tekopyhyyden kritisoiminen toimii myös nykyaikana. Mieleeni jäi erään omalaatuisen saarelaisen suustaan päästämä lausahdus, että lähimmäistään pitää rakastaa, paitsi jos tämä on kerettiläinen.

Third book of the Pantagruel-series, this is dedicated to the woman. Many mythological references, which makes it rather difficult reading.
Fourth book: search for the Divine Bottle; the character of Panurge develops from rascal to frightened guy, a cheated deceiver. This contains mainly travel stories; exoticism at the top, but not so enjoyable.
The main characteristic of the work of Rabelais is unrestrainedness and exuberance.
