শুরুর গলপ থেকে একটু পরপর একেকটা ভয়াবহ জিনিস ছাড়ে, আমি নিতে পারি না, বনধুবানধবরে ইনটারনেটে সেই গলপ খুঁজে বের করে কই, পড়ো, পড়ো, আমি ত নিতে পারি নাই, তারা নিলে যদি ভার কিছু কমে, বাটোয়ারা করে নিলে পরে।
মজা নেয়া বাদ দিয়ে বলি, সেই। সব গলপ ভালো না একরকমের, আমার ত লাগে নাই, কিনতু কার সব গলপ ভালো হয়!
তাছাড়া বরাবর এত ভালো ভালো গলপ লেখা একঘেয়েমির বযাপার হবার কথা!
ভারতে পরকাশিত ইজরায়েলী বই - এইটা এক ধরনের আটপৌরে আননদ দিচছে। শাঁসালো আননদ গলপগুলিতেই। কী যে অদভূত।
১, ২, ৩, ৭, ১১, ১৩, ১৫, ১৬-১৮, ২৩, ২৫, এই গলপ কয়খা

Simply great stories. Enjoy the moment reading them without the effort to concentrate on the words. The stories just come out to you.

1st ever book that I finished reading in one sitting. A lot of amusing light-hearted stories that are fun to read and few are just a bit meaningless. Not a bad time pass for an hour ! There are often occasions where Etgar Keret impresses with brilliance of heart-touching writing and occasions where you can get drowned in your past and into nostalgia.

Stories that stood out for me are :-
The Story About a Bus Driver Who Wanted to be God, Siren, Katzenstein, Jetlag, Pipes & Crazy Glue.

A collection of stories with a quality like O'Henry's- all ending as a bit of a surprise. An assortment of tales that are funny, weird, astonishing, nonsensical and simply beautiful- but all heartfelt.
The use of grammar is very slick and the ideas are crisply, powerfully conveyed. My favorite from the lot are The bus driver who wanted to be God, Breaking the Pig and Crazyglue.

A book I instantly fell in love with. An easy going assortment of amusing and simple tales, which claim to be as commonplace and inconspicuous as entertaining they are. The tales are witty, crafty, comic and disturbing, and an unintended insight into the various faces of life in Israel.

Etgar Keret is a discovery that's gonna keep me happy for quite some time.

Collection of stories which will make you think...and make you laugh...and make you feel good and bad.....sorry, actually I did not get what were the feelings I got, when I finished reading each story in the book. The only thing I understand is that Keret got an unique style as everyone says...!!

If you are into short stories, Etgar Keret is one author you have to checkout.
This edition is one of the best collection of his stories.

My favorites: The bus driver..., Kazenstein, Breaking the Pig.

I could have given it a four star, the longest story in this collection kept me from doing so:I did not quite enjoy the longest story when I first read it, but maybe I will go back to this later and find a way to appreciate it. Overall a very decent past-time book for procrastinators like me.

Etgar Keret的短篇小說既幽默又cynical,他寫的也許不是一個個小故事,而是一個個的社會現象,人生裡有太多的事、太多的面相不是我們能改變的,所以Etgar Keret總是以嘲諷的口氣寫下他眼裡的人生百態。。。這本書是台灣出版社從Etgar Keret數本短篇小說裡精選出來集結成冊,所以篇篇精采。。。
