    PDF/EPUB anniecroona.co ↠ Sestra PDF ò sestra mobile, Sestra PDF/EPUBMan was I glad to put this book down This was too clever for me City Sister Silver is the Czech euivalent of Trainspotting only the historical setting is a little serious Set in the Czech Republic just after the Germans have left it's about Potok and his search for meaning to his life in this new style of country Except he searches for meaning by running dodgy trades with the Far East drinking too much taking a truck load of hallucinogens and then talking to his friends about the ridiculous dreams he has After the first few pages of the novel when he's aware of the Germans being shipped off the dreams are really the only hint that any of the characters have any kind of social conscience but the trip they take to Auschwitz in one of these dreams is painfully done and heavy handed It also lasts for everIn the second part of the book the business is destroyed and Potok finds his Sistersoulmate an ex c

    PDF/EPUB anniecroona.co ↠ Sestra PDF ò sestra mobile, Sestra PDF/EPUBSet around the time that the wall came down some parts of the book are really good things that I wasn't aware of The number of people who travelled into the west as soon as they could and Topol's description of the chaos There are sections that seem like dream seuences the Laotians living in the apartment block the dissappearances and the sections dealing with Cerna in particular Had to concentrate to make sense of thisWould like to have given it stars but for the confusing jumble of thoughts and descriptions It's possible it's a book you need to read twice to understand

    PDF/EPUB anniecroona.co ↠ Sestra PDF ò sestra mobile, Sestra PDF/EPUBIn reading the translator's Alex Zucker notes and Ali's review I can see why this would be considered difficult Like a literary jig saw puzzle seemingly random scenes flit across the pages From World Literature Today The action of the novel begins before the Velvet Revolution in November 1989 and ends probably in 1993 The narrator of the bizarre story is Potok a former actor in an underground theaterFinished after forcing myself through the middle section hate to give up and it is worth the read just for the feel of Prague during that time period

    PDF/EPUB anniecroona.co ↠ Sestra PDF ò sestra mobile, Sestra PDF/EPUBSome books are difficult to read A very select few are like City Sister Silver which are so challenging that you almost give up trying to decipher it from the get go and attempt to simply go with the flow I don't believe you would make it through City Sister Silver if you need to understand everything Apart from the obvious difficulties like obtuse use of punctuation endless sentences lack of paragraphs and switches in perspectives Topol's epic rambling dark novel also refuses to make sense and whenever it pretends to shakes off that sense and smothers it in dreamscapes confu

    PDF/EPUB anniecroona.co ↠ Sestra PDF ò sestra mobile, Sestra PDF/EPUBI can see this is an amazing book but I didn't have a clue what was going on most of the time The rise and fall of a young man in Czechoslovakia in the years following the fall of communism with a lot of confusing language and some magical realism I think The first part was the hardest to follow I think you'd have to have been there at the time to understand that part It got easier later slightly and some parts were uite charming But then others were horrible
