PAPER WALLS - LINDQVIST, JOHN A.
Just a soft breath of fear to break down those certainties, and we realize how weak they can be our beliefs, our habits. Our ability to reason, our rationality, Paper Walls.
The writer turns up a bit 'nose in the face of story collections, let alone a trovarsene of 477 p. But having enjoyed the previous Lindqvist I opened the book with excitement and enthusiasm I've leafed through the pages without getting frustrated.
A reading enjoyable, pleasant. The author gives us a ride in his Sweden, presents a host of characters who find themselves in strange situations. We find here the characters of Let the Right , so you understand what's happened, we find a controller of the trams, a witness to the happiness of a married couple, linked by a sad story, we learn of a security officer of the port which has odd manias and the ability to hear the thoughts and anxieties of others, we meet a man who goes mad after his shipwreck, we encounter fear, joy, magic, the supernatural, death.
The stories are developed slowly, Lindqvist makes us witnesses of the various events with objectivity, it creates anxiety in the reader, but the story builds slowly so as to create the proper tension needed to keep reading.
The certainty that you have in life are for us a refuge, a warm shelter from the anxieties, the things that sconosciamo. E 'can be in contact with the supernatural? the boundary between fiction is reality, reason and madness is really well defined? Either we are only protected by walls of paper?
The author concentrates here the themes dear to him, and aside from a few flashes and zombesco strictly horror, he worked hard on the daily lives of characters on real life events that intersect with the paranormal, without exaggeration, sometimes without even esplicitarne too how, as if he only wanted to show the evil and madness that surrounds us without the possibility of rebellion.
"Stories that I wrote on my paper walls, the thin walls that separate us from all that we can not explain the other. They are tales of love and death. They talk about how we react when love and death collide and monsters emerge from their hiding places. Happy reading! "John Ajvide Lindqvist
