Ever since I read Smilla s Sense of Snow years ago, I wanted to readby this author, but none of his books were available at my local library in those days Last year I treated myself to plenty of online buying of used books, and this was one of quite a few Peter H eg titles I purchased It is not an easy book to read The style is complex and a little confusing, with the narrator using I , you , and one interchangeably but always meaning I Onc
Peter HoegOnce you have realized that there is no objective external world to be found, that what you know is only a filtered and processed version, then it is only a short step to the thought that, in that case, other people, too, are nothing but a processed shadow.This is the experiment There is no objective reality Whatever we see is edited by our senses, what we see is nothing but our perception of it The world exists because we are looking at it And even other people aren t real, they a Peter HoegOnce you have realized that there is no objective external world to be found, that what you know is only a filtered and processed version, then it is only a short step to the thought that, in that case, other people, too, are nothing but a processed shadow.This is the experiment There is no objective reality Whatever we see is edited by our senses, what we see is nothing but our perception of it The world exists because we are looking at it And even other people aren t real, they
Nearly finished Enjoying most of all the peculiar leakage between moments in the textual flow which disturbs any idea of a neat linear process The novel is about the tyranny of time, and has some aphoristic points to make, as would any writer dealing with time as content Neatly done A flatness of delivery, possibly reverberating with the emotional numbness which affects each character in different ways, then standing out here and there an image, or a sentence or two of vivid clarity.The teat Nearly finished Enjoying most of all the peculiar leakage between moments in the textual flow which disturbs any idea of a neat linear process The novel is about the tyranny of time, and has some aphoristic points to make, as would any writer dealing with time as content Neatly done A flatness of delivery, possibly reverberating with the emotional numbness which affects each character in different ways, then standing out here and there an image, or a sentence or two of vivid clarity.The teatise on time towards the end is very bald but succinct accurate too I wonder whether the intention of the theory was to present an exemplar of how coh
When you have children, you find out that you have so much to learn Not all of it makes sense at first One of the things I ve had to learn, was how to praise my child That if your child has climbed high up on top of something and she says look at me , you re not supposed to say oh how good you are but rather, oh look how high you ve climbed You do this to praise the action, not the child itself, so the child doesn t think it has to do such things to have value I think.In part, t

CapolavoroQuando chi ama leggere si imbatte in un libro come questo, si sente come se fosse stato baciato dalla fortuna Un passaggio, tra i moltissimi indimenticabiliIl tempo lineare inevitabile, uno dei modi per restare aggrappati al passato, come punti su una linea, la battaglia di Poitiers, Lutero a Wittenberg, la decapitazione di Struensee nel 1772 Anche quello che scrivo qui, questa parte della mia vita, ricordato in questo modo Ma non l unico La coscienza ricorda anche campi CapolavoroQuando chi ama leggere si imbatte in un libro come
I d liked Smilla s Sense of Snow, so thought I d try Hoeg s next book Dark and frightening, it is the fictional tale although there are big hints of autobiography of Peter, without parents, in and out of various Danish schools for children in abnormal circumstances, without families, without supposed normal intelligence Turns out that Biehl s Academy, where time and space are clearly defined and monitored, is actually part of

Ci sono dei libri finiti sembrerebbe nel dimenticatoio, seppelliti dalla mille cose che nel frattempo ci hanno riempito la vita Alcuni di loro, li leggi e non gridi al miracolo, e invece il giorno dopo, una settimana dopo, un anno dopo, eccoli l , con la forza delle frasi, forse solo una, una soltanto, ma ritorna, ingigantisce, diventa il libro intero e tu ti dici che quello stato proprio un romanzo memorabile, e improvvisamente senti il bisogno di dirlo a tutti Ecco, per I quasi adatti Ci sono dei libri finiti sembrerebbe nel dimenticatoio, seppelliti dalla mille cose che nel frattempo ci hanno riempito la vita Alcuni di loro, li leggi e non gridi al miracolo, e invece il giorno dopo, una settimana dopo, un anno dopo, eccoli l , con la forza delle frasi, forse solo una, una soltanto, ma r
