U Zlatarovu zlatu postoje zapravo dvije usporedne fabule, međusobno toliko isprepletene da jedna sudbinski utječe na drugu: sukob silnika Stjepka Gregorijanca i zagrebačkih građana oko vlasništva nad Medvedgradom i okolnim posjedima i »nemoguća« ljubav Stjepkova sina Pavla i djevojke Dore, kćeri uglednoga građanina, zlatara Petra Krupića. Ta je ljubav nemoguća jer su među ...more

It's good to read it before bed-time because it is boring. Although, it's made on some local legends and history characters.

The WORST.

Considered the first Croatian historical novel, Goldsmith's Treasure, was an instant hit when it was first published in 1871 in the Croatian newspaper Vienac in episodes (which was a usual way of publishing novels back in those days). Its success led to a book edition a few years later.

The story is set in 16th century Zagreb, a few years after the Peasants' Revolt of 1573 led by Matija Gubec. It has two parallel stories, the historical one, a dispute between the citizens of Gradec (Zagreb) and

Too detailed descriptions, too much characters to follow (in history part), too much confusing latin phrases which make your eyes wonder across the book to find meaning and makes you lose focus. And, yeah, it's way too boring.

Ovu knjigu u isto vrijeme volim i mrzim.
Svi koji me barem malo poznaju znaju da volim povijest, oni koji me poznaju bolje znaju da mrzim ljubavnu patetiku i "pravu ljubav" među ljudima koji su razminili doslovno dvi riči u životu.
Jedino Zagorka ne spada u tu skupinu, ali ona je oduvik bila posebna priča.

Uglavnom, vratimo se na Šenou.
Kao i uvijek, njegov stil pisanja i prepričavanje su istovremeno prekrasni i iritantno dosadni.
Na nekim sam djelovima doslovno preskakala nekoliko stranica, bacila

For the last few years, top 10 the most popular names for girls in Croatia have been: Lana, Lucija, Petra, Ana, Ema, Nika, Dora, Sara, Lara and Mia. The most popular male name is still Luka. Then Ivan, Marko, Filip and Karlo. This book is widely 'guilty' for the name Dora. When you think about name Dora, then it has these connotations: sweet and soft, summerish, purity, hardworking, girl from the next door.

Because Dora Krupić from this book was like that. She adored her father and she was the p

I'm giving it two stars because it was very tiresome and full of historical facts that went in and out of my head like a wild river. Even though I know the literary value of the story and the thing Šenoa tried to accomplish with it (to the extent of there being a statue of one of the characters in Zagreb), I look at this book with a look of indifference for it left almost no impact on me whatsoever. There WERE, however, a couple of scenes in the story that resulted in a surge of emotions and I m ...more

Also had to read this for school. It is a very famous and old novel written by one of the most popular writers of all the time, August Šenoa.

Wasn't as bad and boring as I thought it was gonna be but still I found the historical part a bit too much for me and I skipped a lot of paragraphs because of it :P

Povijesni dijelovi su donekle zanimljivi, dok je ljubavna radnja prilično ''prozirna''...također sam početak je dosadan, ali sa protom radnje knjiga ipak uspijeva postaviti određenu razinu zanimljivosti...

Malo me razočarala knjiga, više sam očekivao od ovog Šenoina romana...

Surprisingly quality writing with rather interesting characters. The two plotlines are interwoven well although I could have done with a little less politics and a little more action. The end is sad and fitting, I think, for a historical novel.

Historical novel filled with love – very powerful book showing us how much of a violent place this world can be. If you want to save yourself, go and love.

Jedva uspjela pročitati do kraja. Po meni, jako dosadna knjiga. Ljubavna radnja nije zaanimljiva, a ni povijesna.

Prošlo je dosta godina od prvog i jedinog čitanja...valjalo bi je obnoviti..a tri zvezdice po sećanju.

I loved it!

I particularly enjoyed finding Šenoa's comments about historical accuracy of his own work.

Why did I not read this when I was a teenager?

Ne mogu dati jednu zvjezdicu zato jer knjiga nije toliko loša, ali većinu knjige bilo mi je dosadno i ne bih je ponovo pročitala ni da mi netko plati
