A fervent tale that reveals just how real how surreal how drastic the gap is between modern and traditional lifestyles The prose the imagery and the outcome of this story transport me to a discarded burnt out rusting hull of a train plane or submarine at the banks of a receding sea invisible radiation raining down the last pick of cotton long gone from an abused land How far is it then to find beauty in a simple hut or the explosion of fresh yogurt on your tongue

И дольше века длится деньRe дольше века длится PDF #180 and values of the Soviet Union's Central Asian peopl. This is exactly the sort of book I was hoping to find when I started my world fiction challenge a truly excellent and accessible novel that deserves to be much widely read Fiction in translation covers a wide spectrum sometimes feeling very foreign and bizarre but there’s something wonderful and life affirming about finding a book like this that’s perfectly relatable and understandable despite for most English speaking readers an enormous cultural gapThe book is about an old man named Yedigei who works at a tiny railway junction out in the empty steppe of Kazakhstan His oldest friend Kazangap dies at the beginning of the book and Yedigei leads the other men of the junction out to an ancient cemetery for the burial On their trip to the cemetery he reminisces about his life particularly about an ill fated family he grew close to in the 1950s There are also a couple of folk tales included as well as a science fiction subplot about a first contact with an alien civilization Which may sound like a lot but it all comes together very well even the sci fi bit which seemed clumsy until its thematic reason for being in the story became clearOverall this is simply an excellent book It’s a compelling story featuring interesting three dimensional characters The evocative writing brings to life a remote corner of the world and the translation including the dialogue is very readable without being dumbed down The author incorporates a lot of 20th century Soviet history while still keeping the focus on the characters It’s also definitely a “big ideas” kind of book with a lot to say about cultural memory international relations and the Soviet system among other things but again Aitmatov manages this in a subtle nondidactic way keeping the primary focus on the characters and their storyI regret that my Russian isn’t nearly up to reading novels because had I read this in the original it likely would have gotten 5 stars As is the language is uite good and so it’s a very solid 45 It would have been nice had the foreword been about providing the reader with helpful background information like where in Kazakhstan this actually takes place and less about its writer showing off but as for the novel itself I have no complaints Definitely recommended if you can get your hands on a copy
