    Castorp PDF EPUB ↠ Paperback castorp kindle, Castorp eBookI have been told by a friend on Facebook and some of her friends that Polish writing is not very good because Polish does not express itself well in the written form English on the other hand so they claim is wonderfully adapted for the written form so English books are far superior I can't argue with them because I can't read Polish sadly I'm the euivalent of an illiterate peasant which befits my roots Can it be that my appreciation of Polish literature has its roots in the fact that I am reading English translations Is the coarseness of Polish writing mystically reshaped into a perfect form through the process of Anglicisation I know that translation is always a compromise as the translator has to balance what is actually said in one languag

    Castorp PDF EPUB ↠ Paperback castorp kindle, Castorp eBookThis book is much better than the average rating on Goodreads 35 stars in Jan 18 if you read it the right wayFirst of all it is a preuel to The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann 1924 and it deals with one of the most important fictional characters German literature has Hans Castorp I read this book straight after reading The Magic Mountain and I have to say it was a great experience When you spend a lot of time reading the 1100 pages of Thomas Mann you will be a bit melancholic when you reach an end But then Mr Huelle offers you the possibility to meet your dear most average hero of all again in his study years in Danzig Both books draw you back in a time earlier than the World Wars and completely isolate you from todays world The inter

    Castorp PDF EPUB ↠ Paperback castorp kindle, Castorp eBookI'm always on the look out for the next Who Was David Weiser but thus far I haven't found another Huelle book that uite lives up to my expectations Castorp is meant to be a preuel to Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain Hans Castorp is a student in Gdansk at the time of this book before his adventures of Mann's novel As I haven't read Mann's book I'm not sure what Huelle's lends to it However I saw a review that calls Castorp a work of literary fan fiction which I like and which about sums it up I probably would have feelings for this had I read The Magic Mountain first but when I do eventually get around to reading it I'll be

    Castorp PDF EPUB ↠ Paperback castorp kindle, Castorp eBookThis is a preuel to The Magic Mountain but a Czech writer who imagines the life of Hans Castorp before he took the train up the Zauberberg He successfully mimics the tone and pace of Mann's own prose and manages to give a thought provoking look at the development of Castorp's character in the Polish then German city of GdanskDanzig where he attends University The landmarks of the area in that distant time are brought startlingly to life along with an assortment of memorable characters and aspects of historic importance like the early practices of psychotherapy Huelle's voice is confident and calm leading one into his premise with a voice we want to follo

    Castorp PDF EPUB ↠ Paperback castorp kindle, Castorp eBookI love the way Huelle perfectly captures the language and setting of a lot of early modern fiction You could have passed this book off as another Mann the story is based on a minor character from The Magic Mountain A critic's review on the jacket was good enough to repeat the scenes of the book are all pretty playful and silly but where you can see Huelle is making some allusions to post Magic Mountain EuroPolish history it's a lot serious
