Şimdi bir daha asla başka bir Anne Rice romanı almamam gerekiyor. Bunu okumaya çalıştım, ama yarı yolda ve hala droning ile sıkıldım, bıraktım. Bir iş arkadaşının dediği gibi, artık okulda değiliz, bizi yakalayamayacak ve eğlendirmeyecek kitapları okumak zorunda değiliz. Daha iyi bir kitaba geçelim.
Brilliant book, turned me on to King's work and I haven't looked back!
Originally I felt like his style was bugging me a little bit, with what came across as a repeated habit of sentence structure, and I almost thought that story was a bit dull, with not a whole lot of action or drama. But by half-way through I was really starting to see “DeLillo’s World” as he was conveying it, full of anxiety, nervousness, panic, fear, and lots and lots of distractions that seem to leave the important things in life all distorted in “a wash of noise.” It took completion of the novel for me to really appreciate his metaphors and his character’s struggles, and I think that they have only grown stronger as I have grown older. Who wouldn’t love a pill to stave off death or the fear of it? Who can stop thinking about their own mortality? How far would we go if we knew/thought we could do something to stop it? Who never thinks about a disaster hitting their home street? They may seem like fleeting thoughts to many people, but I think they occupy space in a lot more people’s brains than we truly realize, whether we discuss them, recognize them, or repress them.
Un roman doux et généreux. C'est l'histoire d'une famille qui se retrouve pour l'anniversaire du patriarche. Chacun porte des valises trop lourdes, en quelques jours ce ne sera pas non plus le déballage des grosses affaires qui rendent rancuniers et amers. On assiste plutôt à de l'introspection, sans forcément conclure sur de grandes décisions qui feraient tout basculer. J'ai aimé le climat et l'ambiance. C'est chaleureux et réconfortant. Il y a infiniment de tendresse, même derrière le dépit et la rancoeur. C'est un roman sur les secrets de famille qui ne revendique aucune prétention, et je l'aime pour ça.
