Ways of Going Home (2011)
language
English
3.78 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: The story here jumps back and forth between the story and an account of its writing. Back and forth between created characters and the voice of the author as he goes about his life, making decisions about how and when to work on the book, what to keep and what to leave. The res...

review 1: No me decepcionó pero me dejó con preguntas, y no sé si eso es bueno o malo. Quizás es porque refleja la vida, y siendo sinceros, no siempre se tienen todas las respuestas en ese juego. Me gustó el estilo de Zambra, me gustó el inicio conciso, sus juegos de palabras, me gustaron ...

review 1: Si le tuviéramos que exigir al libro una conexión con el panorama de la dictadura, quizás no lo lograría del todo bien. Pero quizás tampoco hay que exigírselo. Como todo Zambra, el libro es mucho más íntimo y el contexto no entra del todo en la historia de los personajes, funcion...
Manieren om naar huis terug te keren (2011)

review 1: Hoje se vai muito além do que disse Cortázar. Há sim romancistas que ganham por pontos, mas há também romancistas que ganham por nocaute e outros que ganham já no caminho do ringue. "No final, ela morre e ele fica sozinho...", diz a primeira frase de "Bonsai". À paranoia do spoil...
Formas de Voltar Para Casa (2011)
language
English

review 1: A masterful short novel within a novel with not a wasted word. It is clever without being clever-clever, never patronising the reader or over complicating things, but remaining intelligent, thought provoking and perceptive from beginning to end. I love how memory, time, place and...
Eve Dönmenin Yolları (2011)
language
English

review 1: I really was surprised when the title of this book actually revealed itself as very directly referring to the action – but it's not that simple. Duality in person and politics is examined during a tumultuous time in Chile's history inside this short novella. True to its south ame...
The Private Lives of Trees (2007)
language
English

review 1: I read it last week. Although I did not dislike it, I can't say much for it. Part of the thing is that short stories and novellas rarely work for me; I don't know why but it's not my thing. It was quickly read and quickly forgotten. I decided to read this book because of Ariana's...

review 1: I read this somewhat surprising novella when I was on a plane the other week, way above the clouds and my mind was full of celestial thoughts as a result of that.It’s interesting how such a simple story of ninety-eight pages, covering an evening with an individual, can sustain on...

review 1: não é tão sensacional, intocável e incrivelmente inspirador quanto "bonsai", mas ainda assim tem lá grandes trechos que fazem alejandro zambra ser melhor e inovador do que muita gente. é bonito (poderia ser lindo, mas não é) e agonizante (poderia ser muito desesperador, mas não é...
Het verborgen leven van bomen (2007)
language
English

review 1: Alejandro Zambra is magical. Not "magical realism," but pure magic. His two books available in English (this one and the also-superb Bonsai) are short, engaging, absorbing reads; his books are tremendously quotable, full of insights and the kind of succinct brilliance that is inc...
