Stela and 25 other people liked Algernon (Darth Anyan)'s review of The Witch Elm:
The Witch Elm by Tana French
"
Lord, we know what we are, but know not what we may be.

Why start a crime novel with a quote from 'Hamlet'? I glossed over the epigraph, eager to dig into this standalone novel from one of my new favorite authors, but after the last page I came b..." Read more of this review »
Stela and 13 other people liked Arwen56's review of Colpa delle stelle:
Colpa delle stelle by John Green
"Okay? Okay.

Okay un cazzo, tanto per usare un francesismo. Mai lette tante baggianate tutte assieme. Sarà che piove in continuazione, ma qua gli pseudofilosofi spuntano come funghi. Come se già non bastassero (e avanzassero) scrittori come Coelho o..." Read more of this review »

Confesiunile unui cafegiu (ca să mă exprim cacofonic) e scrisă enervant de prost, mi-am dat seama după primele pagini, ceea ce nu m-a împiedicat s-o citesc din scoarţă-n scoarţă. Motivul e probabil cel invocat de Cosmin Ciotloş în recenzia sa din

“When they go low, we go high.”

How these Michelle Obama’s words, which I think are the quintessence of this amazing woman’s personality, sound truer and truer lately! I so needed her memoir (which was all I’ve expected it to be and more – the story o

Bleak House by Charles Dickens
"Is a lawsuit justice, when it goes on and on ....and on, seemingly in perpetuity ? In Bleak House located in the countryside outside of London, that is the center of the story, years pass too many to count, the lawyers are happy the employed judge..." Read more of this review »

The Beautiful Absurdity of the Game


I knew nothing, shame, shame on me!, of Bohumil Hrabal when I received Harlequin’s Millions as a birthday present from my best friend. Until then, for me Czech literature began with Karel Čapek and finished with M

The Purple Patch


It is amazing how a little novel like The Color Purple manages to cover many controversial aspects of our society – racism, colonialism, sexuality, feminism – without appearing one-sided, or sacrificing art for ideology, or becoming

Colette
“Tu es comme l’odeur des roses (…) tu ôtes l’appétit.”
Colette, La Chatte

Camil Petrescu
“O iubire mare e mai curând un proces de autosugestie, trebuie timp și trebuie complicitate pentru formarea ei.”
Camil Petrescu, Ultima noapte de dragoste, întâia noapte de război

Umberto Eco
“The book has to give the idea of another kind of newspaper, has to show how I labored away for a year to create a model of journalism independent of all pressure, implying that the venture failed because it was impossible to have a free voice”
Umberto Eco, Numero zero

Margaret Atwood
“You can't keep a cool head when you're drowning in love. You just thrash around a lot and scream, and wear yourself out.”
Margaret Atwood, The Robber Bride

“Attorno a noi ci sono colori che prima non avevo mai notato. Il blu dei pavimenti. L’azzurro degli infissi. Il giallo ocra nelle ombre. Le sfumature viola sui soffitti, e dentro agli occhi della gente. Gli aloni verdi dei nostri destini. E le sbarre: all’improvviso sono dappertutto. Sulle porte, alle finestre, tra i nostri comuni pensieri. Il vecchio frenocomio non mi era mai sembrato tanto vivo, e presente, come da quando abbiamo ucciso il suo passato. Prima, gli echi delle sue storie erano molto più forti. Adesso, le nostre vi si sono sovrapposte. Difficile stabilire a chi appartengano le grida che si odono di notte. Mi chiedo se forse non siamo tutti connessi – noi, che restiamo, e coloro che hanno perso l’occasione per andare – nel nostro sentirci dimenticati da chi amiamo. Ma forse è solo quello che succede in ogni parte della terra. In fondo, siamo tutti prigionieri di qualcosa. Di una stanza. Di noi stessi. Non c’è peggior luogo di reclusione di un cuore abbandonato. E non c’è peggiore abbandono di quello di chi si abbandona da solo.”
Sara Zelda Mazzini, I Dissidenti
