Ortaokul, ortaokuldan bir sürü hatıra getirdim. O zamanlar bu duyguların ne kadar önemli olduğuna çok fazla güldüm. Yazar, küçük bir kasabada dönemi ve duyguları çok iyi yakalamış gibiydi.
Bu kitabı çok beğendim. İyi örneklerle hızlı.
TRITE! Can you imagine One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest meeting Mills and Boon? Well, it happened in this book. This terrible, mawkish sentimental story is set in an insane asylum where the nurse falls in love with the patient, who, if he wasn't insane, you would have to conclude is the most extravagant bullshitter on the face of the earth. I blame the author. It is basically cheating to put a large part of the story into the mouth of a character who is insane because then you can abdicate all responsibility for the fact that it doesn't make any sense. It is further cheating to abandon any notion of 'point of view' so that the character telling the story - about himself - is also telling you things that he could not possibly know - like what other characters are thinking. Furthermore, it is ridiculous to suggest that a SPANISH doctor could not work out (from his accent alone) that his patient is CANADIAN. It is ridiculous to suggest that a female nurse would be swimming naked while her patient watched. It is ridiculous to suggest that a psychiatric nurse would be so baffled by all the patient's mumbo-jumbo that she begins to attribute some sort of magical powers to him. I mean, how did he manage to get Federica to make him a cup of coffee every day? Wow. Spooky. Please, I beg you, don't read this book if you know ANYTHING about psychiatry. Or literature. Or, for that matter, reality. Because you will probably hate this book as much as I did.
