Incredible In freakin’ credible This is one of those titles you want to recommend to everyone but you know damned well that it isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea—one of those novels that folds up on itself into something origami like—a piece of paper manipulated into a work of art something like this even if your own look like this my paper birds have wings that flapWhy do you read Why do you read what you read When you pick up a novel for the first time do you think ‘this looks good’ and wonder how it will end or do you look over the book and consider how the story might be told how the author might attempt to engage you andor might the author have something to say beyond the story itself Are you a reader who wants and expects entertainment or are you a reader whose expectations demand engagement of a sort that you know doesn’t appeal to all readers If you’re one of the readers who expect than story than a gripping page turner someone who wants to be spoken to and not just entertained you just might like Javier Marías He’s a demanding author—his expectations of readers are great His willingness to let a narrator’s thoughts wander in seemingly aimless and endless directions and to subjects that may or may not seem to speak to the story itself will slam covers closed for many readers If you find Saramago or Bolaño or Henry James or Melville too long too wordy too ‘boring’ like this review Marías might be an author best avoided—one left to the die hards the critics the snobs and the award committees His paragraphs might go on for pages while his sentences can feel almost as long He expects much of his readers but the payoff is worth the time and effortIn TITBTOM the narrator a perhaps unreliable narrator aren’t almost all first person narrators unreliable recounts the night he spent with a married woman as they have dinner and anticipate making love once her small child finally falls asleep but her physical distress escalates or degenerates culminating in her death while her young son witnesses his partially dressed mother and the narrator in his parents’ bedroom and the narrator considers what might be happening in other parts of the city and world before returning the child to his bed removing all traces of his having been in the dead woman’s apartment considering voices on the woman’s answering machine attempting to provide for the child before abandoning the apartment and then later attempting to learn the fate of the child the identities of the callers and if his presence in the apartment has been detected a longwinded sentence not uncharacteristic of the text of the novel though much less compelling or artful Check out Chris’ much better review synopsis here TITBTOM is than a story of an untimely death than a story about how that death affects other characters—it’s as much about how what we don’t know affects us as much as what we do know and how the dead live on; the narrator considers the link between himself and the dead motherPerhaps the link was merely that a kind of enchantment or haunting which when you think about it is just another name for the curse of memory for the fact that events and people recur and reappear indefinitely and never entirely go away they may never completely leave or abandon us and after a certain point they live in or inhabit our minds awake and asleep they lodge there for lack of anywhere comfortable struggling against their own dissolution and waiting to find embodiment in the one thing left or infinite resonance of what they once did or of one particular event infinite but increasingly weary and tenuous I had become that connecting thread The story is haunting It builds slowly making connections between characters and memories tightening a circle that reads like the dénouement of a mystery Readers too are haunted by the memories of the narrator—so thoroughly are we privy to his every thought The narrator can be compassionate in protecting the secrets of living and the dead; he can also be humorous “I was drunk but that’s no excuse you can be drunk in as many different ways as you can be sober” TITBTOM isn’t a long book but it’s slow going dense; it’s a novel that is exhaustive without being exhausting This is one for the few those willing to work for their reward I've never been one for publisher loyalty but I'm batting close to 1000 with NDP

Mañana en la batalla piensa en míLa piensa en PDF or permanentemente sobre o ue distingue a en la batalla piensa en PDF or vida e a morteAinda mais ue noutros romances seus Javier Marías revela nos uma narrativa caprichosa acerca das várias uestões ue a todos nos consomem o segredo as acções e as intenções as vontades ue ficam por cumprir a rejeição o esuecimento a indecisão a despedida e acima de tudo o engano ue uiçá é «a nossa condição natural e na realidade não deveria magoar nos tanto». This novel blew me away and I'm still working to fit my pieces together I got lost into Marías' winding train of thoughts and I'm still trying to find my way back to reality What was it that I liked so much about this novel Well everything the plot the subtle humor the flow of words the ideas the profound pondering I found and lost myself at the same time and I really can't explain this; if you haven't done it yet you should read the novel and see for yourselfMarías talks about death about memory about guilt about the power of names He also talks about the life of a story prone to be transformed with every additional mouth that will pass it on The plot of Tomorrow in the Battle Think on Me is merely an excuse for the writer to travel down the meditative path to reach depths of thought that left me wondering and made me feel exalted So many truths that I haven't thought of before so many approaches that now seem obvious He made me look at my possessions and ask myself do these objects hold any interest to other people or is it just me who justifies their existence and utility And do I really need all these things around meThere's death in this novel unexpected and ludicrous as in dying in your socks or at the barber’s still wearing a voluminous smock or in a whorehouse or at the dentist’s; or dying in the middle of shaving with one cheek still covered in foam half shaven for all eternity unless someone notices and finishes the job off out of aesthetic pity Through Marías it suddenly becomes easier to look in the face of the life's worst enemy to laugh at it and even embrace its possibility a littleAfter we are dead our memory ceases to exist along with the ephemeral life of our personal things What was important to us may probably lose its meaning to other people everything that had meaning and history loses it in a single moment and my belongings lie there inert suddenly incapable of revealing their past and their origins Our smell might persist for a while if windows are not opened and clothes are not washed But our bodies will travel towards dissolution like all things that are never repeated or happen so often that tend to fall into non existence Just as the unwanted belongings our bodies will suddenly become useless prone to be discarded like all the scraps that will rot Our faces will become foggy but our names will forever be remembered by those who once knew us Raw plain reality that we'd better be able to confront It isn't just the minuscule history of objects that will disappear in that single moment it’s also everything I know and have learned all my memories and everything I've ever seen– my memories which like so many of my belongings are only of use to me and become useless if I die what disappears is not only who I am but who I have been not only me poor Marta but my whole memory a ragged discontinuous never completed ever changing scrap of fabric But how does memory work Even the King also known as One and Only Solo Solitaire Lone Ranger Only the Lonely and Only You is worried that he won't go down in history with some identifiable traits of character He is ready to invent such traits so that people could remember him easily But he is not aware that famous figures benefit from the power of myth that comes with the passage of centuries and sometimes from their vile feats While some are forgotten and lost in the mists of time others are perpetuated and become legends But the vast majority of people is sentenced to a life of ghosts lurking in the shadows never uite stepping into light Looking at their last achievement and denying their past people believe they pass through important transformation but are they really changed into a new completely different personEven if this was my first novel by Javier Marías his works are etched in my mind so I could notice that throughout the narration he used phrases that later were to become titles of other novels What a disgrace it is to me to remember your name though I may not know your face tomorrow; who is going to hurl us over on to the reverse side of time on to its dark back; Tomorrow in the battle think on me think on me when I was mortal There are so many other things here that are worth discussing but I've already written too much The novel's only fault may be that the characters' voices are not uite distinct the narrator and the cheated husband talk in the same way and it's a bit hard to believe in such a chance encounter between two meditative people But I chose not spoil the joy of devouring Marías' words and imagined instead that everything was filtered through the narrator's voice thus becoming his story But wait this must be it and it makes sense it is his story now told in his own words in his own style
