Hit and run

“I didn’t need any God to make the revolution.” We chose to include this book in the calendar of the “Stazione BooktoMi 2022” review well before it reached the right popularity because it was selected among the finalists of the Strega Award; this already makes us understand our opinion on Bertante’s new work. In the form of a novel, the birth of one of the best-known terrorist groups is told: the Brigate Rosse. But don’t...

Zainab takes New York

“FRIDAY DI-VERSO” “So, my dear, what is it that prevents you from creating the life you want?” We stroll around New York with Zainab, looking for an answer to this question. The novel itself is a long walk through the end of adolescence, the sprint gives us the discovery of an immense and unknown city (at least, for the protagonist) like New York. Zainab comes to us from Ghana, confident, full of expectations and full of...

In the sign of the moth

“When you know each other since childhood and growing old together, friendship is something indefinable, precious.” A book halfway between thriller and adventure, with a sprinkling of sociology on the surface and a filling of history. Too demanding? No, far from it, very enthusiastic. The protagonist of the second appointment of the “Stazione BooktoMi 2022” review, the reading of the book quickly turned from a duty to a pleasure. With the greatest merit of having...

70 times Vasco

“We were fine, even if we had little. And maybe that’s not bad...” We chose this book to open the second season of the “Stazione BooktoMi” festival because it is the one that more than any other new release in the last period makes the desire to return to the normal life we knew until March 2020 at its best: being together, hugging and sing at a concert until you have no more voice. Focused...

The Fall of the King

“FRIDAY DI-VERSO” “The nights are long and restless for the lonely, for the defenseless.“   What if the hundred years of solitude hadn’t passed in remote Macondo but a little further north, among the fjords of a dazzling and fabulous Denmark? Wars, lovers, apparitions, landscapes so poignant as to be unreal and yet there they are, in front of our eyes, bright. Hearts devoured by passions that are cold as ice and burn like ice; characters...

The girl who erased memories

“Could lies bring happiness?” Dichotomous review, one aspect we liked very much, another much less. An interesting contrast on which we stopped to think perhaps more than necessary, so much so that it took us two days to read the book, over a week to write these words. On the one hand the story told, on the other the author’s stylistic code. But let’s go in order. The story told is that of Olga, a...

Each creature is an island

The books chosen by Andrea Salonia This review is available only in the original language _________________________________________________________________________ Non sempre la stranezza è espressione di qualità, come pure di bello. Così, strano non equivale per forza a interessante. Invece, Andrea De Spirt ha scritto Ogni creatura è un’isola, pubblicato per i tipi de il Saggiatore, e a buon diritto possiamo dire che il suo è un romanzo davvero originale, insolito e curioso. Ma anche sorprendente, eccentrico e...

Next

“Nobody knows anything about time, but everyone enjoys giving it a voice.” Book dedicated and directed to the world of adolescents. The writer of this review has left their late teens for a few years, so not being in the target audience of the text, they may not have fully appreciated what a young person’s book of life will be (until they grow up). Read in an afternoon without excessive effort, the text is a...
