One of my favorite thing about all books is the way you can be immersed in a completely different world regardless of your own surrounds Buses filled with people noisy people outside or even your daunting to do list all melt away for as long as you can let them And with an ever growing To Be Read pile I have in the last few years adhered to the fifty page rule If a book doesn’t hook me within its first fifty pages I set it aside This usually happens about three or four times a year and this book marks the third and hopefully last book of 2013 that I could not bring myself to finish Like Kent Wascom’s The Blood of Heaven and A L Kennedy’s The Blue Book even getting to that fifty page mark became something of a struggle Perhaps my frustration with the novel lies at the feet of the translator Originally written in German this English version uses words in the rambling prose that greatly contrast with the clearer language in its dialogue Though not all blame should be placed on the translator The concept of a fictional country set in the Cold War era somewhere in the Transylvanian Mountains is disorienting with real authentic facts and locales mentioned alongside this faux background Marketed as a coming of age novel its overall point of view is that of an older Pavel looking back on these events which really takes away from that “coming of age” feel This coupled with an inconsistent verb tense an entire village of characters all shallowly described and the odd use of vocabulary all make this book difficult to connect with on any level Maybe someday I will try this one again it certainly seems to have received some rave reviews from other readers but for now I just can’t make myself look at it
