English
4.12 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Otra novela de Zweig. El tipo no decepciona. Aquí nos presenta a un viejo librero que pasa sus días absorto en la más absoluta concentración, leyendo al rítmico vaivén de su cuerpo, hipnotizado en la gracia de la abstracción literaria. Uno de esos personajes extraordinarios que s...

review 1: I knew that Wes Anderson felt inspired by the work of Stefan Zweig in his recent film The Grand Budapest Hotel, but I didn't recognize any specific Zweig work in the plot of the movie. It's clear, though, that what Anderson liked about Zweig was his tendency to nestle a narrative...

review 1: ALEGATO CONTRA LA GUERRAGran historia conmovedora. Me ha recordado a 2 novelas: “Una partida de ajedrez” de Zweig donde retrata otra obsesión, y “Bartebly, el escribiente” de Melville, donde una persona ajena a la realidad, llega a ser destruida por la sociedad. Mendel, y como ca...

review 1: Journey Into the Past is a wonderful lament on time, memory and relationships. The delivery and structure of the novel is deceptively simple. Written in the first person without timeshifts other than the recollection of memories it presents as a simple love story. However through...

review 1: "Oh, dieses Geheimnis, das ich immer und überall spüre, wenn ich unter Erwachsenen bin, vor dem sie die Türe zuschließen in der Nacht, das sie in leises Gespräch versenken, trete ich unversehens herein, dieses große Geheimnis, das mir jetzt seit Tagen nahe ist, hart vor den Hände...

review 1: The effortless fluidity and emotional depth of Zweig's story-telling is present in all his work, but I can understand why this wasn't published during his lifetime. I found the story basic; familiar, yet lacking resolve. It's a story of interrupted love, prolonged longing, and co...

review 1: Beautifully written, but there was nothing more than this for me. Didn't feel connected to any of the characters and this love story was just too melancholic and obsessive. I wasn't enjoying my time while reading this novella till the point that I forgot I was reading it at all.I...
