  • Unforgetable

    This is book is peculiar but in an astounding. It waves tales with a writing style close to poetry sometimes, and it sticks with you. It is not for everybody, it features some mature content, but it has some of the most sublime sentences in contemporary literature. One of my favourite books.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fairytales and communism

    Deathless wasn't what I thought it would be or what I wanted it to be. Certainly, it was like nothing I've read before! It drew me in with its magical fairy tale first chapter - the writing was beautiful all the way through, but the chapters that used all the fairy tale motifs were my absolute favourites. I loved how the same thing would be repeated several times, in slightly different but parallel ways, how it would come up again later on. In a way, I wish the whole book would have been like that. The idea of mixing fairy tales with the Soviet Union and making the spirits adopt the soviet ideology was ingenious. At times funny, but always clever and somewhat striking. The plot was intriguing at times and it certainly kept me guessing, although it was also extremely bleak. A rather surprising ending too! I'm really torn between 4 and 5 stars. I feel like it deserves 5, but there were things I didn't like as much, so I'd lean towards 4 on personal preference. At times I almost felt like I was reading two different books at the same time. Like overlapping two images, but not aligning them, so it all gets a bit blurry. The nature of Marya and Koschei's relationship was a little disturbing at times. I can't personally see love as requiring you to give up your will to another and I didn't enjoy the ferocity of their physical relationship. Overall, it felt like a powerful book, one that you can't read lightly, but one that will stay with me for a long time.

    Thanks for your feedback!
