И дольше века длится день

Eaches of galactic space this powerful novel offers a vivid view o. This is the third novel I ve read by the Kyrgyz writer and again he manages to make me fall in love in his characters and narrative There is something special and uniue in Aitmatov s writing that I seldom see in other authors I especially admire is his skill to describe nature and use is to crate emotional atmosphere and evoke feelings He has the ability to write beyond time and space by using grounds common for all human beings He makes us realize that we are not so much different than the people from the remote Boranly Burannyi junction situated somewhere in the Kazakh steppes

Characters И дольше века длится день

F the culture and values of the Soviet Union's Central Asian peopl. Early on I thought I was going to absolutely love this book but it didn t lastIt started as a two plot novel One involved the death of a respected elder at a remote very very remote Soviet railway junction and the efforts by Yeidigei his close friend to brings the body fur burial at a distant cemetery that holds meaning for the tied to the region The other plot involves a joint US Soviet space mission that is I really don t want to spoil thisSeemed to me like like an odd juxtaposition traditional thing along the lines of Faulkner s As I Lay Dying which also involved transporting a corpse for burial but had uite a lot in it and humor than you d expect from a story line like this intertwined with the kind of science fiction writing I most admire straightforward no obsession gee whiz look what I can conjure up techno toys and a relevant political theme Not sure how it would all connect but what the heck an author need not reveal all in the early stages I was all in Hooked and eager to go furtherThat loud thud you may heave heard was really my great expectations plunging to the ground in a dead heapI suppose a high school student assigned an essay could sueeze out 150 words or so on the way the two plots connected but I d excuse that knowing how important it is to do what the teacher wants and get a decent grade But really they never connect at least not in a than trivial way at the every endAnd contrary to my initial assumption this wasn t a multi plot novel The sci fi story uickly petered out and died and like the deceased elder got a disappointing burial at the end This was really a one plot novel all the way And as it turned out it didn t hold a candle to As I Lay Dying The funeral procession was just a literary jumping off point for what I suppose was the real novel the story of Yedidigei and the remote railway junction in which he lives with injection of some older folk stories from the region It s not as if this was awful There was interest to it How could there not be dealing with all that went on in Stalin land But it just seemed to drag on for many pages than was warranted by the material especially the amount of paper and ink devoted to the rebellion of the rambunctious camel I know that this book is a Goodreads superstar judging by the prevalence of five star reviews including two from folks I know in real life I don t know Maybe I d have been satisfied had Aitmatov not built up a big sci fi expectation early on only to leave me increasingly frustrated and irritated as his failure to deliver dragged on and on and on
