Way Mar as presents a Madrid characterized by its ghosts The living slip through the streets with carrying the ghosts of others in their minds and hearts streets are named for famous fallen heroes parks named for bombing mishaps during the war the whole city is ntrenched in its history However it is not only the dead who are faced with their dissolution and all throughout the novel we are presented with characters slowing dissolving into oblivion despite the beating of their hearts The narrator is a political ghostwriter who writes for another ghostwriter a mere ghost of a ghost a political leader that Purely Sexual enlists his aid fears being forgotten and not leaving a mark on the memory of his people and characters shroud themselves in mystery and shadows to avoid connection to a death While it is unbearable to know another has died it isually unbearable to dissolving while still alive Memory is the only way they can cling to the world as well such as a sullen speech by the political figure Solitaire aka Only the Lonely aka Only You The West Transformed: A History of Western Civilization, Vol 1, to 1715 etc where hexpresses fears that the reviled the person the memorable they are Those who hold secrets inside feel so burdened by them that they must ventually bring them out into the light not because of a growing shame ating away at the soul but because they have merely been overcome or motivated by weariness and a desire to be whole It is the bonds we form with others that builds a sense of permanence by sharing memories or sharing our stories we pass them on so that we can forge a space in the hearts of others that will continue after our own departure Sometimes our ghosts can be a heavy burden such as the film seen by the narrator a film of Richard III in which an old King is visited by the ghosts of those who lost their lives in his name mocking him cursing him tomorrow in the battle think on me and fall thy dgeless sword Despair and die The world is but a history of ghosts seeking remembrance in the hearts of the living sometimes out of love sometimes out of malice Yet how much of another can be imposed upon us since much is of no interest to the person receiving it who is busy forging his or her own memories The real irony however is that ven our sense of permanence the fragments that do find their way into the minds of others is just another form of fleeting impermanence Those who hold us in our hearts will ventually rot away as well taking our ghost to the grave with them Everything is continually travelling on verything is connected some things drag other things along with them all oblivious to ach other verything is travelling slowly towards its own dissolution the moment it occurs and The Anathema Cell even while it is occurring The way our lives are connected is illuminated brilliantly through Mar as The way others aretched into our hearts like names on a tombstone only cracks the surface Mar as uses language in a uniue and compelling way to tie verything together Using repetition to revisit many of the narrator s luscious meditations when they apply to a new situation it is as if he doubles back to stich a new fold together in the narrative carefully sewing all the vents and ideas together to form one large potent message on life and death iWhen we go back to a very familiar place the intervening time becomes compressed or is Pookie-Pie evenrased and cancelled out for a moment as if we had never left it is that unchanging space that allows us to travel in time The way Mar as juggles his themes and pulls all the vast array of ideas together in the closing scene makes for one of the most impressive conclusions to any novel I have ver read It is nothing short of genius Through this connection of ideas Mar as reminds us that this is a story being told to us a story from one perspective turning the reality around him into a cast of characters to move about a narrative to xpress the way he perceived it which opens up an incredible Calling Home examination on language Not only is all of humanity connected but words as well Each word drags with it an assortment of connotations which hexamines in detail ach change from the usted to the tu and vice versa is dissected to xtract a wealth of hidden meaning and very word is at once one thing and its contrary an idea that Derrida would be pleased to see put to good use It is our language that allows us to interact with one another beyond the purely physical and while both leave us forever altered by any interaction with another it is only through language that we are able to xamine and The Structure of Soviet History: Essays and Documents express the ineffable impact of our collisions with the bodies and consciousness of others What a strange contact that intimate contact is what strong nonxistent links it instantly forges ven though afterwards they fade and unravel and are forgottenbut not immediately after stablishing those links for the first time then they feel as if they were burned into you when verything is fresh and your yes still wear the face of the other person The physical contact bonds us to others and not only to those we immediately make contact with but all those with whom we are now linked to by the process of our minds acknowledging that the other has contact with people beyond us and now we are linked to them through this chain of interaction The narrator often tries to recall an old Anglo Saxon term that failed to be adopted into the languages that from it a term describing the bond between those who have failed to be adopted into the languages stemmed from it a term describing the bond between those who have a bed with the same person The narrator feels an unbearable burden to acknowledge all the men he may be related to Anglo Saxon style and posits that the word has not survived because it isn t Date Me easy to accept the act that it describes and it s therefor better not to name it a connection based on rivalry and unease and jealousy and drops of blood It is language that ties us together the most language binds us with those around us and with those throughout all of human history Having repeatedly drawn our attention to language Mar as uses thentirety of his st Incredible In freakin credible This is one of those titles you want to recommend to veryone titles you want to recommend to veryone you know damned well that it isn t going to be veryone 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 ven 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 Fitness for Geeks: Real Science, Great Nutrition, and Good Health end or do you look over the book and consider how the story might be told how the author might attempt tongage you andor might the author have something to say beyond the story itself Are you a reader who wants and xpects ntertainment or are you a reader whose Cause Of Fear expectations demandngagement of a sort that you know doesn t appeal to all readers If you re one of the readers who xpect than story than a gripping page turner someone who wants to be spoken to and not just ntertained you just might like Javier Mar as He s a demanding author his The Game of Love expectations of readers are great His willingness to let a narrator s thoughts wander in seemingly aimless andndless 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 Bola o or Henry James or Melville too long too wordy too boring like this review Mar as 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 xpects much of his readers but the payoff is worth the time and ffortIn 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 scalates 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 nchantment or haunting which when you think about it is just another name for the curse of memory for the fact that vents and people recur and reappear indefinitely and never ntirely 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 The Lady in Pink embodiment in the one thing left or infinite resonance of what they once did or of one particularvent 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 d nouement of a mystery Readers too are haunted by the memories of the narrator so thoroughly are we privy to his Eyes 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 noxcuse 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 xhaustive without being xhausting 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. And the unknowing Victor plunges into dark waters And Javier Marías Europe's master of secrets of what lies reveal and truth may conceal is on sure ground in this profound uirky and marvelous novel Brilliantly imagined and hugely intricate as La Vanguardia noted it is a novel one reads with normous pleasu. ,


Marvellous Loved the serpentine sentences with their astonishing thought within thought near metaphysical poetic lilt preference for the cosy comma over the sloppy semicolon their use of not oft seen things like reported speech and thought within parentheses or another character s dialogue repeated phrases dark back of time about six times and callback to arlier passages and uotations to levate the plot matter to something loftier than the obvious Mike is right Mar as aside from being Spain s premier James Belushi impersonator is an origamist But where is that lusive fifth star ye cry Despite my love for these sentences not Spirit of the Wolf every one was lusciously lickingly lovely plenty felt like stylistic run ons not unlike Hubert Selby deploying his punctuationless style merely as a formality in later books like The Willow Tree and left this asthmatic reader gasping for that most arcane of necessities a paragraph break Meanderingness alsoxperienced in the middle portion of the novel regarding the hero s A Vineyard Christmas ex lover but the novel builds towards a stupendously bendy climax where Mar as delights in scrunching one s brain into various cubist swans and other pond creatures and all is happy again This book no longerxistsI told this to the owner of the bookstore it was of course Een Bijzondere Vorm Van Osteosclerose empty You are the second person to complain The first was much younger than you More my age You have not read the book I asked as he sat at thedge of a table mostly mptied He shook his head Then that would xplain it I would like my money returned Can t do But I no longer have a book that I bought here Explain yourselfOK It begins with a dead woman in the narrator s arms He will remember her name but never see her face again I m hooked The three hundred and leven pages solid in my hands It read fastBut you were disappointedNo you re not understanding He was a great storyteller craftsman He planted images situations thoughts throughout tightening the narrative creating unuestioned believability There was a voice It was a voice of intense inner reflection but never interrupted the flow The suspense kept me reading through two nightsYou want your money back because you didn t sleep I have boring books for youNo The plot was intricate perfectly balanced pitched At times the voice ven Hot Shot (North Ridge Book 3) evolved into hard boiled crime noir in breaks from this fascinating inner life of self reflections I bought a suspense novel It was what I needed But set in this noir form was the highest philosophical thinking on the nature of reality on identityToo difficultNot at all He mixed speculation with dramatization ofveryday life It isn t as though this crime story of Math Basics 6 everyday detail is greatness likeVirgilorI sold it to you as greatnessNo yes you did You said it was what set him apart That within this nonlevated non classical literature form he spoke both to modern times and the universal You said that it wasn t some masterful trick of craft And He folded his armsOK There was greatness The story volved from its complex characters heartless surprisingly caring at times fascinating But he showed how our identities are cobbled together by distorting and selecting memories delusions If we can get others to mirror back this image of us we then can see ourselves how we need to see ourselves We select those who will provide this favor but they too are cobbled together and wanting to create themselves as a certain presentation According to him this is true of all the broadcasted world What we see on the news read in the papers is prepared rehearsed then proffered in distillations according to same favored planHe rose then sat down again I said thisI read it In the bookEverything is storiesHe shows that the teller of the story has the power and will tell it any way they want Then it will be the listener s to hold and make their own to tell to themselves and others The same story can never be told the same twice not ven by the same person Our consciousness will be filled by the stories we tell ourselves and those told us by othersSo in the The First Ghost end it wasn t suspensefulnough and you want your money back Like the last guy It s not going to happenI haven t aten for for three daysI have no food here Didn t you see the signI can t at I haven t finished reading the book yet I m just coming to the Simple Numbers, Straight Talk, Big Profits!: 4 Keys to Unlock Your Business Potential endI sure hope soNo I mean thend of the book I have to find out what happensSo why didn t you bring the damn book and finish reading itBecauseBecause the book I held in my hands was a storya story being tolda story cobbled together out of the consciousness of someone cobbled together Sorry Mr Marias It was a great story about the immutability of truth about writing and reading about life as if we lived on a forgotten planet and knowing this all history is our attempts to adapt and survive Everything Even this conversation After leaving me heart pounded and sweat ridden the book dispersed into nothing Can t you see I am holding nothing At least I think it is me holding it I looked up He was gone This novel blew me away and I m still working to fit my pieces together I got lost into Mar as 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 verything 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 xplain this if you haven t done it yet you should read the novel and t done it yet you should read the novel and for yourselfMar as 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 Humanism every additional mouth that will pass it on The plot of Tomorrow in the Battle Think on Me is merely anxcuse for the writer to travel down the meditative path to reach depths of thought that left me wondering and made me feel xalted 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 xistence 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 Placing Memory eternity unless someone notices and finishes the job off out of aesthetic pity Through Mar as it

ephemeral life of our personal things What was important to us may probably lose its meaning to other peopleverything that had meaning and history loses it in a single moment and my belongings lie
