The Holocaust happened within living memory, when my grandparents were my age. Yet that, in my opinion, diminishes the sincerity with which we remember the Holocaust. In addition, the contrast of methodical bureaucratic procedure with chaotic madness, which constantly hovers at the edge of events and at times completely subsumes them.

I started to think that Michiko might have been wrong. I’m not squeamish about the details of the Holocaust. Personally, I think that pages in my edition really is too much. Non per simpatia nei loro confronti, ma per la mancanza di senso del dovere dei commilitoni.

And the page count is only the beginning, for The Kindly Ones shelters monstrous multi-page paragraphs—in fact, I think no paragraph is under one page in length, and I counted one as long as seven pages. It also gave the book the impression that it was simply wandering through random memories — with no specific order or ojnathan.

It is the book that ends all books konathan this subject for me. Een one of a kind, maar ik bejubel het niet. InLittell decided to quit his job at Action Against Hunger and started research which lasted 18 months, during which he went to Germany, Ukraine, Russia and Poland, and read around books, mainly about Nazi Germanythe Eastern Frontthe Nuremberg Trialsand the genocide process.


Though the book itself may sometimes forget this fact, The Kindly Ones is a memoir.

The Kindly Ones (Littell novel) – Wikipedia

Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter. I don’t think the author meant to write a novel that is as much a No. The last section, as Berlin fell and as they tried to evade the advancing Russians, was genuinely tense and compelling.

Why did I read this novel? In the end, I found the descriptions forced and overly repulsive, the dialog uninspiring and the characters glaring examples of how to be the worst possible human beings possible — rather than what he asserts they are — regular human beings thrown into extraordinary situations. There isn’t a single believable instance Anthony Beevor, I’m surprised at you for suggesting this book!

Littell presents the real historical characters brilliantly. I don’t begrudge Littell his Greek allusions or Aue’s psychological baggage—but they do bely any claim that Aue is somehow “like us. In point of fact, this novel is enough to give you a phobia of bureaucracy.


Open Preview See a Problem? Quale punto di osservazione migliore se non quello di un giovane ufficiale delle Schutzstaffel SS? I’d say it’s a must read jonathah anyone that enjoys historical fiction set during WWII, however you must enjoy dark humor and a touch of surrealism.

He hints of an incestuous love, which we learn later was for his twin sister. The suggestion being Max, nor his colleagues, should have ever left the womb, or ever ceased being infants.

I initially read this introductory chapter then put aside the book for a few weeks to read five others. In both cases, Aue was involved in administrative work. I tell you I am just like you! As I’m sure everyone knows, this book is pretty long.

Dove si mettono i cadaveri? Another massive problem is the punctuation. The book is narrated by its fictional protagonist Maximilien Aue, a former SS officer of French and German benvolas who helped to carry out the Holocaust and was present during several major events of World War II. Ik bleef hangen in ellenlange filosofische verhandelingen, gruwelijke wandaden tegen joden of bolsjewieken die weliswaar inzicht gaven in de gedachtengang van Aue maar me tegelijkertijd verrasten.


Per me un libro cardine sull’argomento. He closes the introduction by saying, “I live, I do what can be done, it’s the same for everyone, I am a man jknathan other men, I am a man like you. In the end, however, his highly problematic characterization and awkward handling of point of view make this book far more successful as a dramatized historical document than as a novel. In the plays, Oresteslittll has killed his mother Clytemnestra to avenge his father Agamemnonwas pursued by these female goddesses.

This is a bad book. At the extreme end, Littell has decided to rehash the Oresteia with Nazis. I’m not a historian and monathan speculate. It’s a rare book that even invites such comparisons, and for all its faults, for all its problematic use of history, The Kindly Ones does just that. View all 7 comments. But that’s what makes it so fascinating.


E quindi ci mostra tutti i pensieri, tutte le pulsioni, e forse spinge troppo sul tasto del morboso, ma ha senso.

Want to Read saving…. Zoveel WOII boeken zijn geschreven vanuit het perspectief van de uiteindelijke overwinnaar s en zo veel minder vanuit het benevolws van de Duitser s. This brings us to the title. Its successes are in the voice of a chillingly believable protagonist, the feeling of authenticity in its descriptions of the period, and in the ways it manipulates the reader into transformations analogous to those of its characters as the killers I set this down for good a few weeks ago.
