D set up they search through theirast to find some attern that will give meaning to their fate. Whimsical and intriguing at first this one eventually became a drag sorry Elisa Some fun turns and assages "But A Lot Of It "a lot of it me wondering about translation artifacts I am not Elisa Some fun turns and Brainwashing of the German Nation passages but a lot of it had me wondering about translation artifacts I am not sure how I came toick up this book Encounters with Rauschenberg: (A Lavishly Illustrated Lecture) probably a recommendation from someone or other I am also not sure how to describe the book a group ofolitical risoners willing away their final night on earth By Telling The Stories telling the stories how they became embroiled in the olitical struggle having unbeknowing to them a traitor in their midst and thus unwittingly give up their biggest secret and the revolution s biggest asset the identity of their leader Then again it could also be that they did know of the risoner lanted in their midst to spy on them that the stories they told were scraps of false information sparsed out in order to divert suspicion from the real leader to someone else Maybe it was all a big Social Media and Social Movements: The Transformation of Communication Patterns ploy to get rid of aolitical rival Or maybe they were fooled after all Difficult to say Maybe it is the reader that was fooled halfway through I was getting impatient with the characters if I had figured out that the rebel leader sharing their cell encouraging them to tell stories was too good to be true why couldn t they Then again they might have Oh confusing But for whatever reason the book did not thrill me More than a bit obscure Though apparently highly rated this book left me a bit cold Gesualdo Bufalino was Sicilian like other favorites of mine Leonardo Sciascia and Giovanni Verga Night s Lies takes Boccaccio s Decameron as a model But instead of young aristocrats escaping the Black Death in the convenient uarantine of a country estate outside Florence the narrators are four liberals friends men inspired by the French Revolution who now await the guillotine in rison for sedition They are the baron the soldier the student and the oet They are given a choice by the Ouroboros prison warden Should just one among them give up the name of their leader known only by the code name God the Father they may all go free if no one does off with their heads Therose when not admirably flat as in the early going can turn bombastic It s in these moments swelling like some heroic tale that I disliked it the most But it s compulsively readable There s something here of the Aeneid Hollendartida i Norge: 1550–1750 perhaps not surprisingly and something of the old chivalric tales which Cervantes so ablyarodied The ending is truly a clinic of a jigsaw A literary thriller At 157 p you can read it in one sitting The lace of confinement is an island fortress It is known as an island but ought to be called a rock For it is nothing than a stack of volcanic tufa heaped up into the form of an en.
