characters EisTau AUTHOR Ilija Trojanow ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ros turísticos ue viajan a la Antártida ansiando encontrar en el último rincón natural del planeta el silencio cargado de verdad ue tanto anhela Ni siuiera entre los amantes de la naturaleza encuentra un alma geme. An interesting mashup of a narrative and an experimental book that felt like an art form than an easy read The first few pages of the narrative followed Zeno a disgruntled misanthrope and aging expedition leader on a cruise to the Antarctic Bemoaning humanity and its ravages of the world Zeno fails in his duties numerous times and seems focused on his lover a Filipina waitress on the same cruise In a final fit of insanity he hijacks the ship when he and only one other person are onboard The last page or so of each chapter is a mash up of words almost like word jazz that eschew punctuation and logic It almost felt like flipping frantically through TV channels some pornographic and catching just snippets of things that made sense each ends with an alert about the ship s status post hijacking in capital letters In the end the hijacking feels almost poetic It happens during the staging of a live art piece the crew and guests forming the letters S O S on the ice originally intended as commentary on climate change as the ship sails away I have mixed feelings about this book It s impressive that it was translated from German and yet it still felt very nuanced In hindsight I realize that the mash up of information in the last page or so of each paragraph is mostly from the rescuers and news shows following the hijacking and wonder if you can t read each section together as a bit of a puzzle to make it all make sense The text after the capital letter alerts for example when read together say and nevertheless keep it up nothing will help except a complete reboot I ll be sittin when the evening comes wastin time nothing else matters all ablaze now it s time to roll up your sleeves again and now for something completely different is in large measure suspect that came off marvelously on and on without end which kind of sounds like a weird song lyric Still this creative format was a bit too out there for me Maybe because I wasn t expecting it or maybe because I m a book traditionalist The plot was interesting the jazzy chapter endings were a bit too strange for my taste Took awhile to get a feel for it and really dig into this book As a conseuence it took over 15 days to finish this 159 page book

characters EisTau AUTHOR Ilija Trojanow ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB En un mundo en paulatina destrucción por la acción del hombre el profesor Zeno Hintermeier vive la desaparición de “su” glaciar como una pérdida propia Decide dejar su cátedra y embarcarse como guía en cruce. Zeno has an environmental problem He cares too much about it His ex wife told him this his intensity of feeling and enthusiasm came across as anger and shoutingZeno is a German scientist who did his doctoral work studying a glacier in the Alps He fell in love with his glacier and with ice Now 40 years later he never visits it All that is left of the majestic glacier are scattered chunks of ice the size of desks Now Zeno gives lectures on an Antarctic cruise ship and leads walking tours to see the penguins He knows his scientific stuff but he s such a downer about the calamity that is occurring that he has to be told to lighten up We actually get very little science just his observations He holds the tourists in a kind of contempt They re overweight and interested in their checkoff lists than in the wildlife and natural beauty They sit in the warmth of the ship and watch the scenery go by the windows as if it s a documentary on a TV screen Zeno is torn about his own role in all this is he contributing to their education and ultimate preservation of nature or is he contributing to its destruction His paranoia makes him believe that the half dozen scientific research stations maintained by various nations are there just waiting to be allowed to exploit the oil that s probably under the ice He gave up his glacier scientist role because he felt that it was like being a hospice doctor comforting dying patients If education is working why is nothing happening to improve the global warming situationWhile on the cruise he plots and carries out a dramatic action that brings world wide news attention to his causeHe has a woman friend like many of the crew a Filipina whom he sees just three months a year on the cruises which are held only during the short Antarctic summer So the cruise story is interspersed with lovemaking with his woman with reflections back on his student days studying the glacier and with episodes from the days when his marriage was dying Each chapter ends with a few paragraphs of stream of consciousness passages like a brain dump of his dayThere s good writing my beard is straggling toward retirement no one can teach the art of complaining as well as rich people the words kept limping at the end of every sentence like a bad leg Of his bank advisor the title says it all the man advises his bank at the cost of his client He tries to fob off on him securities and what a phony word that is right up there with insurance I have the impression time and again that glaciers are putting on the last act of a bad play A good book that kept moving short almost a novella less than 150 pages The author is a Bulgarian born writer b 1965 who now lives in Vienna and writes in German He has also lived in Nairobi Paris Munich Cape Town and Mumbai With than a couple of dozen works he is a prolific author but only a few of his works have been translated into English He had his 15 minutes of fame in 2013 after a flap in which he was denied entry to the US to attend a literary conference He blamed it on a magazine article he wrote critical of NSA surveillance techniues although his visa processing would have also occurred during a federal government shutdown There s a story here photo from wanderlustcoukMiddle photo from sciencemagazineorgThe author from itb berlincom
