"Aici, drag cititor, ma tem ca, fara sa vreau, iti voi da o grea lovitura. Si anume, n-o sa-ti povestesc si n-o sa-ti descriu nimic din ceea ce vad ca se intampla in patul dreptunghiular pe care acum, iesit din creierul cam incins al lui Vali - ... am uitat sa-ti spun ca asa se numea tanarul blond cu barba aurie - il vad in intreaga sa desfasurare,cu formele sale de relief ...more

Deși o carte subțirică, am ales „REM” de Mircea Cărtărescu datorită titlului. REM (=rapid eye movement) este momentul în care visăm, visul din timpul nopții, fiind conform psihologiei, o formă a imaginației.
Dar când se termină visul? Când se termină copilăria și unde?
Numele rusesc Svetlana înseamnă lumină, iar acest personaj și-a demonstrat cu siguranță capacitatea de a străluci altfel, de a vedea lucruri dincolo de prezent și mai mult decât atât, de a le păstra în minte. Toate întâmplările de l

"Vad precis cum se formeaza boaba de lacrima in ochii ei, cum creste, sprijinindu-se de marginea lucioasa a pleoapei de jos, cum aluneca de-a lungul obrazului."

"M-am trezit în plină noapte şi mi-am dat seama că sunt îndrăgostită. [...] M-au izbit deodată sutele de mii de stele răsfirate pe cer, arzând şi scânteind în toate culorile. Între ele, declinând pe boltă, marea cometă alburie îşi flutura pletele prevestitoare de cataclisme, potopuri, incendii, dezastre."

" E doar un sentiment, o strangere de inima in fata ruinarii tuturor lucrurilor, in fata a ceea ce-a fost si nu va mai fi niciodata. O amintire a amintirilor. REM-ul e, poate, nostalgia."
