    Apák könyve [Pdf Read] I don't read much translated contemporary literature but this was a treat I'm not sure what I was expecting perhaps some kind of science fiction like story line where the ability of the first born in the family line is able to use their unusual gift to pull off amazing and unexplanable feats? Anyway what I got was an extremely interesting guided tour through the family history of a mostly unremarkable clan The ebb and flow of the writing

    Apák könyve [Pdf Read] I was disappointed that I struggled so much with this book Following twelve generations through three centuries is no easy feat especially when dealing with Hungarian vernacular While it was a well rendered story I found my lack of sympathy for the characters led to confusion when referencing prior patriarchs though the family tree provided some guidance in keeping the first born sons straight There seemed to me to be a disconnect between

Read & download ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Miklós Vámos Apák könyve Characters ð E-book, or Kindle E-pub Litto mondiale allo stalinismo dalle leggi razziali e dai campi di sterminio alla seconda guerra fino al 1999 Ricollegandosi con straordinaria capacità inventiva alla tradizione del romanzo famigliare ottocentesco Vámos ha creato una polifonia di voci che resistono col loro umanissimo timbro alla spietata indifferenza del tempo e della mor. This Hungarian family saga which starts around the end of the seventeenth century tells the unlikely story both personally and politically through the nightmare of Hungarian history of a sort of Jewish family The events recorded rape pillaging fire execution kicking to death abandonment maiming suicide wasting away are so hideous that survival even to the age of 45 or so is a grotesuely funny accomplishment In fact the guggle to zatch uality of the saga reminds me of Thurber s improbably funny short novel The 13 Clocks Even if they end up fed to the ducks the family through several name changes leaves a record Ten terrible tales of The Book of Fathers written by ten fathers of the twelve included are doled out in a rich and not always chronological framework Their stories are distinctive and memorable paradoxically because of strong family resemblances The story of the twelve fathers continues even when a World War II survivor burns these horrifying treasures refuses to acknowledge the past to his own son and consigns to the latrine a little time piece that had followed his fathers for generations If the War is a great cleavage that made history impossible for that generation nevertheless those of us following do not know who we are if we cannot reclaim our history So as if by transmigration of souls who recycle every 150 years the story continues through generations and by careful archival workThis is a beautifully constructed work and even in translation one can see that the author tried to use contemporary expressions throughout I can t tell if I would put it up there with Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky Only time will tell

I m glad I own a copy of this book for this is a novel that is worth a reread if there ever was one The only reason why I didn t give it five stars is because I didn t feel like I have established a deeper connection with this author That happens sometimes even when you truly enjoy the book you re reading and I believe me I immensely enjoyed reading this novel It is an interesting thought provoking and brilliantly written family saga I didn t feel it was one of those life changing books but that doesn t mean I don t think highly of it Honestly the novel itself is uite spectacular The writing is simply brilliant I remember my first reading experience of this book uite clearly For some reason I was sure that I was going to like this novel even before I know what it was about The cover attracted me as much as the time When I ve read the opening lines I was positive that I d enjoy this one I was right The book dragged me in and took me for uite a ride This is a well rounded epic story spending over centuries following lives of one Hungarian family Perhaps the most fascinating premise is the one about the ability to look into the past A magical sort of ability in a way However the author makes it seem so credible The idea is this men from this family can look into the past of their ancestors Isn t that something we d all love to do The firstborn sons at some time in their life receive the books of Fathers but they inherit something even unusual than centuries old diary The firstborn sons develop the ability to see into the past of their predecessors and sometimes also to get a glimpse of future This leads to all kind of adventures as you might imagineWhat does this remind me of I d have to say Dune yes the brilliant SF saga Taken that I absolutely love Dune that is an obvious plus in my book I always felt like Dune covered the theme of prescience so well The issue of prescience is masterfully tackled here as well Can we escape the future if we can see it What can the knowledge of history bring to us What dangers and what benefits What else to say but this is a wonderful wonderful wonderful historical novel Did I mention that I love history When people ask me whether I like historical fiction I m not sure what to answer It depends on the book really I ve read both historical fiction that I liked and disliked Some others are better than others at recreating that feeling of history This author is simply brilliant at it Vamos takes us into past with his writing he really does In addition he does it so effortless That s what impressed me the most the ease with which he writes and connects all of his numerous first born protagonists It is fascinating how well the story develops managing to connect past times with present The challenges of life in general remain very similar as do those of family life and fatherhood but times are very different and these changes manifest as the story develops Some thins change while others don t Vamos has a great eye for detail and he captures it well The writer is very successful in recreating past times He has a sense for history and realizes that different times bring different customs philosophy way of thinking Unlike some writers whose historical novels have nothing to do with history That s the kind of historical writing I don t like the kind where you basically have the present day mentality like you ve gathered a group of people and put them into historical costumes and called it history Vamos is too good of an author to fall into that trap I know I only read one of his novels but in this novel he really does a great job of tackling historical writingWhat else to say The only down side is that some people might find it confusing with the changes of protagonists Personally I uite liked that That s actually one of my favourite things about this novel all the different points of view However you ll need to pay attention while you re reading so that you don t get yourself lost in different POV Yes concentration is indeed needed while reading because sometimes things change uite rapidly Moreover there are so many things happening sometimes at the same time so many trains of thoughts and action to follow You never know what to expect with this one as unexpected events tragedies and strokes of luck always seem to be behind the corner History is always an eventful place isn t This writer keeps its reader on its toes and sometimes so much is happening that you risk to lose track of what person s life you re following at the moment I say almost because all the family members described are very uniue and that makes following their history easier Often it is the case that the son is completely unlike his father in character appearance and spirit Often the apple does fall far away from the three Yet there is something that links all the man of this family but it is not easy to define what exactly it is Personally I loved how uniue all the characters are To conclude I do recommend this novel If you like dynamic novels with a changing POV this is the perfect novel of you As for those of you who are particularly interested in European or Hungarian history well you might enjoy it even It is an original and intelligent family saga that manged to be both imaginative and convincing Highly recommended
