    Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead

    -I received this book from the publisher in return for an honest review.- To read and understand a particular book like this one you need eyes capable of look beyond, otherwise the risk is to have a "normal" crime book in your hands. The main character of the novel, an old English teacher bizarre but also peculiar, as all the characters in this book, has the dual task of take the reader throughout the story, taking him far and wide among the snowy landscapes of Poland and the Czech Republic, to look for the clues necessary to understand the reason for the death of one of the member of the community, but at the same time, force him to stop and reflect on topics related to social, ethical, environmental and philosophical themes. This aspect is certainly what I appreciated most, because it completely amazed and impressed me, also because it's not easy to make the reader reflect in this way in front of a story that is basically a crime mystery, in fact once you finished the novel, the most important part concerns the lesson that can be drawn from the story.

    A dark thriller

    “It is at Dusk that the most interesting things occur, for that is when simple differences fade away. I could live in everlasting Dusk” Three people Oddball,Big Foot and Mrs.Janina Duszejko live year round in a small summer Czech village known as The Plateau. And now,Big Foot is dead. This disturbance interferes with Janina’s winter life of astrology, William Blake translations and caretaking other houses around her. After Big Foot, other bodies are found forcing the reclusive and cranky old woman to try to solve the case(s). Trouble is, will anyone actually believe her. Even if not written in English, this Man/Booker finalist and Noble Prize for Literature winner flows smoothly and has a wicked humor in it. But it isn’t an easy read. Tokarczk deserves the praise she has been given for both “Flights” and this one, whose title comes straight out of Blake. Recommended 4/5 [ disclaimer: I received this book from the library and chose to read and review it]
