Read full description of the books:



Cinco pontos para cinco estrelas:

1. As personagens
Uma tão egoísta que nem nos seus momentos de maior sofrimento me despertou qualquer misericórdia; outra tão terna e generosa que me quebrou o coração de pena e saudade.

2. A narrativa
Que me angustiou e fez temer as páginas seguintes.

3. O choque
Que me obrigou a reler e reler por não querer acreditar no que os meus olhos liam.

4. A curiosidade
Que me arrastou para uma leitura compulsiva.

5. A lógica do absurdo
Nunca duvidei da "veracidade" dos acontecimentos narrados - por mais estranhos e surpreendentes que sejam - porque sei que a natureza humana não se rege por regras matemáticas e toda a gente, em dado momento, tem comportamentos absurdos. No entanto, durante a leitura, algumas vezes, me questionei como é que David Vann ousava escrever certas coisas. Encontrei a explicação, posteriormente, ao pesquisar os seus dados biográficos*.
E tudo, tudo me fez sentido. Ah, o poder da culpa e do arrependimento (como no poema de Larkin) pelo "bem não feito, pelo amor não dado"...

*Quando David Vann tinha 13 anos o seu pai, um homem depressivo, convidou-o para ir passar um ano com ele ao Alaska. David recusou e o pai suicida-se duas semanas depois.
