But then I started reading it a third time. One day I will meet someone who loves it as much as I do, and we will read it back and forth, bit by bit, over and over every day for the rest our lives.

Please try again later.

But the experience of reading this book is anything but scientific, it is like waking up from a dream: My gut felt what it felt and I’d swoon before I knew what was happening. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Jun 19, Jeff Jackson rated it it was amazing Shelves: It had emerged sometimes in conversations in the zone, and although the first one to bring news of the city had been my paredros, being or not being in the city became almost a routine for all of us except Feuille Morte.

Cortazar in my mind is like a pure writer. He’s from Buenos Aires and works as a U. I couldn’t get the meaning out of it.

I’ve read it twice if you don’t count rereading passages and flipping back what Cortazar intended for Hopscotch. View all 35 comments. That may not be the case on a second read, though.

He and Calac often speak in their own made-up language that is unparsable but still you get the idea. En fin, una novela deliciosa. May 18, Mariel rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I didn’t discover until the end where the city ended and the real world of the characters began until the very end. I screamed when Frau Marta whispers in Nicole’s ear about a hotel to stay in while she was in the midst of a suicide attempt. But also perhaps because he is a pure writer that he can never write something that sustains this, that it only comes out in bursts–because his messiness is what makes him so pure and beautiful and human.


Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. It skipped around in the chronology and the narrator changed frequently, sometimes even in mid-sentence. The actors would appear to be unhealthy or complete idiots.

The characters drink every kind of alcohol you can think of, Cortazar is one of the most fearless, innovative and wide-ranging of the group of “experimental” writers who came to prominence largely in the s. And I could keep going.

Published April 17th by New Directions first published Cerrar los ojos, abandonarse, flotar en una disponibilidad total, en una espera propicia. Amazon Restaurants Food delivery from local restaurants. I’m glad that I named my bird after Cortazar.

Perhaps because it is the glimpse of this perfection that I see so often in him that I want to find something of his that sustains it purely. Het biedt alle vormen van leesplezier en emotie die je van een gewoon boek mag verwachten, en tegelijk is het een door en door experimenteel werk dat alle wetten van het gewone boek openlijk overtreedt.

But like a system of metaphysics it can be very offputting at first, until one finds one’s footing in the verbal cloud-cuckooness. I’m stuck on the alphabet in the backwards newspaper in the mirror that looked like Russian characters. What I loved about I could stare and try to read it and never could because I don’t read backwards and I don’t read Russian.

The two books also share common ground on a structural level, with frequent shifts in tense and point-of-view coupled with a general disregard for linear time.

This book came from analytical, almost scientific beginnings, the concept of which is detailed in chapter 62 of Cortaazr. I wouldn’t have the arctic articles necessary, or the down to the bones baring all to defend myself in someone else’s mind about what I related to about cortaxar dreamtruck.


Very interesting and unusual novel. So they’ll say things like “my paredros said,” but when Juan says it he might mean Polanco, and when Nicole says it she might mean Calac, or maybe they all have an imaginary friend in common that everyone believes in together.

The episodic “Hopscotch” may have higher highs, but this is Julio Cortazar’s greatest novel from start to finish. Aug 19, Eddie Watkins rated it it was amazing Shelves: Ultimately it might be 62 and not Hopscotch or Blow-Up that endears Cortazar to you forever – but one way or another, you will be endeared. So it opens on Juan alone on Christmas Eve at a subpar restaurant having just bought a book and in the process of getting diligently drunk, and someone par in the restaurant says something that reminds him of a series of things that he reminisces about — except that it’ll be clear later that those things haven’t really happened yet, and not in the order he remembers them vortazar.

While Nicole, the malcontent, was heartbreaking for essentially doing the same thing to Marrast as Juan did to Tell.

Het is een geweldig romanexperiment, zeer associatief, surrealistisch en van een voor “62 – Bouwdoos” is een soort satelliet of vervolg van Cortazars meesterwerk “Rayuela”, dat ik kort geleden weer eens herlas. I found the writing tedious. I have no idea what I think anything is and yet the trying to decide what my paredros is has got me. They all have a “my paredros” that they kulio about.

En ik heb nog flink wat herleesbare dierbare boeken van hem in de kast! Aug 08, Nate D rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Learn more about Amazon Prime.
