Il Male Inutile raccoglie le testimonianze di guerra di un reporter “di lungo corso”, inviato speciale e corrispondente in molte aree difficili del Pianeta, che nel frenetico flusso mediatico dell’informazione abbiamo quasi sempre già colpevolmente archiviato, anche se si collocano dietro l’angolo dell’attualità e della storia. Guerre e massacri dimenticati trovano in ques ...more

(English review at the bottom)

Ho ricevuto una copia dall'autore in cambio di una recensione onesta. La valutazione vera sarebbe 3,5, ma purtroppo qui non ci sono le mezze stelline.

Non è un libro da leggere tutto d'un fiato. Più di una volta mi sono dovuta fermare per alcuni giorni perché l'argomento mi stava deprimendo. Il libro contiene alcuni reportage scritti dall'autore, inviato speciale in zone di guerra, che parlano di guerre poco conosciute. Leggere di tutte quelle carneficine, della soff

L'inutilità della guerra, il "male inutile ma necessario" di sempre, spiegato in un libro che è amaro, forte, brutale e splendidamente veritiero.
Lupis merita molto più di cinque stelle, merita un applauso e un grande ringraziamento per aver trovato la forza e il coraggio di donare al mondo un libro come questo.

Mi è difficile parlare di questo libro, un libro molto denso, che mostra il male in diverse delle sue sfaccettature.
Posso cominciare con il dire che è un libro necessario, perché non si perda la memoria di tante morti e sofferenze. L'autore è un reporter di guerra e ha raccolto i suoi articoli e reportage su guerre e stragi avvenute in varie parti del mondo. Ogni capitolo consente di vedere, di riga in riga, cosa gli uomini (ci si chiede se il termine sia corretto, in questi casi) sono stati e

Cinque stelle meritatissime per un libro forte come un pugno nello stomaco, realistico e bello che apre gli occhi sul mondo contemporaneo e fa riflettere.
Mi chiedo perché non lo facciano leggere a scuola!

Che bel libro, finalmente!
Lupis mi ha colpito davvero positivamente con questo suo libro intenso e profondo, dove nulla è lasciato al caso.
Davvero un'ottima lettura.

“The truck takes off again on Jalan 15 Oktober, in a cloud of dust, papers and tatters. A half-naked boy, coming out of nowhere, waves at us as if nothing had happened. For a moment, it almost feels like life could go on, just as it always does. But that’s not the case. There’s no time for life here anymore.” 0 likes
“The Americans gave it a name, PTSD — Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I had heard about it before: it was something that had to do with army men coming back from the frontline, veterans who had been under a lot of stress. Or survivors of terrorist attacks, bombings, massacres, or big accidents. What I didn’t know was that journalists were also considered a category ‘at risk,’ particularly the ones who had covered conflict or reported in war zones crisis zones. All those who had witnessed episodes of violence, killings, traumatic events, and who had learnt to work and live coping with the anxiety from nearby fighting and constant danger. I saw many of my colleagues devastated — broken — by what they had seen, which often I had seen too. Some never managed to really go back to their normal lives and once, after a crisis that had hit them harder than the many others, decided they had had enough. Among many terrible news came those of the suicide of Stephanie Vaessen’s husband and cameraman — him and Stephanie were two of the people I had shared the tragic days in East Timor with.
No worries though. I was doing just fine, as I’d tell myself. At the end of the day, I genuinely believed it: I never really took as many risks as many of the colleagues I had met or shared the most traumatic experiences in the field with, hence I had probably been exposed to a lot less stress.
