    One thought on “Bonsái ”

    1. ‘What's the purpose of being with someone if they don't change your life?’There are some books that can be consumed in a singular hour, yet remain within you to be digested by the intellect for days or weeks. Alejandro Zambra’s Bonsai is such a book. The precise simplicity of the novel makes it a difficult book to talk as the novella feels as fragile as an intricately colored moth’s wing—admire its beauty but don’t touch it lest it turn to dust. There is a feeling of weightlessness t [...]

    2. And better still after the third reading. If anyone is interested in reading this one and needs a copy of Macedonio Fernandez's Tantalia, feel free to give me a shout and I'll email you the 5-page story pronto.*************************Even better after the second reading.The world is of tantalic inspiration.So begins Macedonio Fernandez’s fantastic story Tantalia. Zambra makes reference to it. I encourage readers to get a copy and read it—bizarre and an incredible complement to this novella [...]

    3. Bonsai is the first piece of literature that I read in Spanish. It was the right choice for me from the language point of view. The narrative was simple and the vocabulary did not raise many difficulties. I definitely recommend it if you are an intermediate Spanish learner and want to learn by reading. However, this novella did not stir any feelings in me. It was like I was reading a textbook. I though it might be that I was reading in Spanish but I do not think so. Alejandro Zambra is young Chi [...]

    4. 2.5 "perplexed, indifferent, what-is-the-fuss-all-about ?!" stars. I am at a loss as how this book won Chile’s Literary Critics’ Award for Best Novel. Was it a very bad year? Were there no other novels published? Were the critics all first year double majors in post-modern literature and philosophy? I don't get it!!Don't get me wrongis is not a poor book but I found nothing that interesting, or moving, or interesting, or profound, or interesting, or humorous, or interesting, or meaningful, o [...]

    5. What does a resonating journal do? Arrest us in the powerful aura of words? Dispatch us to the comforting cocoon of our memories? Render a blanket of dignity to our failures? Exhort our fledgling dreams to a palpable fruition? Cast a succor net on our isolated struggles? Attest our timidity as a prelude to stronger days?For me, it's essentially about reading about a distant 'me', the identity of this 'me' to be an inhabitant of past corridors or a tenant of future roads being inconsequential. As [...]

    6. “What's the purpose of being with someone if they don't change your life” Alejandro Zambra, BonsaïAlejandro Zambra’s, Bonsai, is as delicate as the miniature tree it’s named after. It is a stunning accomplishment. Zambra accomplishes in 86 pages what other writers take hundreds of pages to accomplish. Just as the silence between notes in a musical composition can define a work so too do the silences in Bonsai define this work. Bonsai is the story of Julio and Emilia, a young Chilean cou [...]

    7. A bonsai has to be nurtured and truly loved or else it will die; likewise, unless one does the same thing with human love, that will also die.This is a philosophical, thought provoking novella (so I have a tautology here but I like it even though it’s extraneous as it adds necessary substance to the wording) and I was charmed and delighted by it all.This is not really a novella but a short story and it can be read in little more than an hour. Nevertheless, in spite of its brevity, it runs the [...]

    8. "She and he, Macedonio’s characters, had and lost a little plant of love. Emilia and Julio—who are not exactly characters, though maybe it’s convenient to think of them as characters—have been reading before shagging for months, it is very pleasant, they think, and sometimes they think it at the same time: it is very pleasant, it is beautiful to read and talk about the reading just before tangling legs. It’s like doing exercise.It isn’t always easy to find, in the texts, some impetus [...]

    9. Kitap hakkında yazacaklarımı düşünürken, kitabı sandığımdan daha çok beğendiğimi fark ettim. Zambra en sonda söylemesi gerektiğini bazen başta, bazen ortalarda söylüyor. Sonra bir ileri bir geri sara sara ipleri örüyor kurguyu. Aslında bu tam olarak kurgu mu bilmiyorum. Sanki onun bambaşka bir tekniği var. "An" gibi tam da. Bi sabah rüyadan kalkıp yüzünü unuttuğumuz birinin görüntülerinin zihnimizde saliselik şimşekler halinde çakması gibi. Sonra bir duygu. T [...]

    10. Pfff. A menudo se habla sobre que la simplicidad es amiga del arte. Sin embargo, me he encontrado con muchos autores que utilizan la simpleza como recurso explícito a fin de ocultar no tener nada (importante) que decir. Bonsái, en mi opinión, es uno de esos libros que palidecen ante su falta de sustancia. No me animo a decir que Bonsái sea una pésima obra, pero no logró en ningún momento provocar algo bueno en mí como lector. Noté un intento de tapar dicha falta de sustancia con ardides [...]

    11. Πως γίνεται μια τόσο ολοκληρωμένη ιστορία να χώρεσε σε λιγότερες από 100 σελίδες;Πως γίνεται μια τέτοια ιστορία, τόσο απλή και καθημερινή, να σε γεμίζει με τόσες σκέψεις και συναισθήματα;Πως γίνεται μια απλή ιστορία να μην σου προξενεί απορίες όπως "τι έγινε μετά; τι έγινε πρ [...]

    12. this is mighty short but very nice. there are some really prettily-written moments within. not life-changing, but a good half hour read.

    13. ”Um romance terno e delicado como um Bonsai literário.”Não gosto de bonsais que, para mim, não passam de uns arbustos torcidos e sem graça, que vivem atrofiados num vaso; plantinhas frágeis que exigem dos seus protectores uma atenção permanente para que não cresçam nem morram. Já fui ama-seca de alguns, nas férias dos “pais”, e passei por grandes aflições; um dia voou-me um da janela (porque as criaturas precisam de uma nesga de sol) e quase fui presa por tentativa de homic [...]

    14. ”Bonsai” (2006) é o primeiro romance do poeta e escritor chileno Alejandro Zambra (n. 1975).Efectivamente o romance ou a novela de Alejandro Zambra tem muitas semelhanças com um bonsai - uma arte ancestral japonesa que através de uma primorosa técnica florestal cria uma “árvore” em miniatura, como uma réplica, semelhante a uma árvore que se desenvolve na natureza -, porque são ambos incontestavelmente pequenos; o romance ou a novela tem apenas 79 páginas; percebendo-se a designa [...]

    15. Σε αντίθεση με τον 'Τρόποι να γυρίζεις σπιτι' που το μίσησα και πραγματικά έκλαψα τα λεφτά μου,αυτό είναι καλό. Όχι τίποτα το σπουδαίο αλλά με άγγιξε κάπως συναισθηματικά και ήθελα να μάθω τι θα γίνει στο τέλος. Το μέγεθος του υπέροχο μόλις 102 σελίδες, το διάβασα μέσα σε μια ωρ [...]

    16. for a slim novella, bonsai sure has attracted considerable attention. penned by a thirty-something chilean poet, the brief work was awarded the 2006 chilean critics award for best novel of the year. despite its wide accolades, it is also not without its share of ardent detractors. unsurprisingly, one would be hard pressed to find a single review that does not in some way compare or contrast zambra to his late countryman roberto bolaño. other than a motherland, however, there seems to be no conn [...]

    17. More of a short story than a novella, but who would spend $13 on a short story? I probably would.In any event, the story's first paragraph is enough to pull even the most reluctant reader in. How's this for a promise?"In the end she dies and he remains alone, although in truth he was alone some years before her death, Emilia's death. Let's say that she is called or was called Emilia and that he is called, was called, and continues to be called Julio. Julio and Emilia. In the end Emilia dies and [...]

    18. Μια κοινή ιστορία. Μια λιτή αφήγηση. Φράσεις απλές, οι οποίες ωστόσο βρίσκουν κατευθείαν στόχο στο κέντρο της καρδιάς. Και τις ξαναδιαβάζεις. Και τις ξαναδιαβάζεις. Και η ιστορία δεν αφορά πια τον Χούλιο και την Εμίλια. Ένα βιβλίο που δε λέει πολλά και τα λέει όλα. Υπέροχο.

    19. basit kelimeler yan yana dizili aradaki kısımlarda da çok yoğun duygularvar. yazdığı aslında kitapta görünen cümleler değil de görünmeyen duygular sanki

    20. Ο Αλεχάντρο Σάμπρα με χειρουργικό νυστέρι αφαιρεί καθετί περιττό. Το μόνο που μένει είναι η ουσία της ιστορίας, που δίνεται αποσπασματικά, μέσα από θραύσματα, σχεδόν ποιητικά θα έλεγε κανείς. Ένα κείμενο ελλειπτικό, που ισορροπεί ανάμεσα σε κενά και αποσιωπήσεις.Μέσα από μ [...]

    21. A book that reads like a quote on life. A book that starts with a seed and grows into miniature version of a giant tree - an apt metaphor for the content Zambra put in this tiny novella that many authors take volumes to express. "Bonsai" is a fitting title for the story that Zambra narrates and the elegant beauty that is the book itself. We follow Julio and Emilia - the two people who in the span of less than hundred pages became people I was more than acquainted with. Zambra pulls you into the [...]

    22. OMG I loved this book. It was a total cover buy and I read the German translation. I really couldn't put it down!The way the author talks about and describes the characters is so great, not to serious but loving and the same time. The story about love and loss and the connection between sex and literature is heartbreaking and true.I can only recommend this to anyone.

    23. Bu eserlere roman demek haksızlık bence, kısacık hikayelerle oluşturulmuş uzun öykü demek daha doğru. Zambra da “ Montana Hastalığı”na yakalanmaktan ucundan kurtarmış. Şaka bir yana bol edebiyatçı vurgulu, krolojik sıra izlemeksizin ileri- geri sarılan film gibi yazılmış, arada çarpıcı saptamalar serpiştirilmiş (M. Proust okuma yalanı gibi) kolay okunan ve hızla bitirilen bir kitap. Eve Dönüş Yolları’na göre zayıf buldum.

    24. El final, el último párrafo para ser más precisa, me estremeció. Buen relato, entretenido. Me sorprendió encontrar a Gazmuri en el libro. Recomendable.

    25. It was ok así tal cual.No sé qué pensar de este libro. Quise leerlo porque vi una reseña que me llamó la atención, a la chica no le gustaba y decía sus "por qué", luego un amigo me comentó que no estaba tan mal y quise leerlo, pero sinceramente no sé qué me esperaba.Creo que el libro estuvo bien, pero no me entregó nada. Es todo tan trivial y poco definido, el lector debe adivinar aquellas historias que quedan inconclusas y que es mejor olvidar para no quedarse en blanco pensando qu [...]

    26. This was pretty flimsy to lay any claim on being a novel. I vastly preferred Ways of Going Home which had a little more heft to it and more developed meta-fictional themes. But really not bad for a book that you can read before breakfast. From reading Zambra it would seem that this sort of short 40 page novel is a common occurrence in Chilean literature but his are the first I have encountered and for now at least get the benefit of the doubt in my mind for their unique form.

    27. An anti-story. Elements of the characters' lives are almost maliciously withheld, and what remains is the suggestion of a story. It also seems to me - after having read 'Ways of Going Home' too - that Zambra has only one story to tell, that of young love, and knowing this limitation, his work is in essence an exercise in never really telling that story.

    28. No se si esto alcanza a calificar como novella. Más bien, yo diria directamente que es simplemente un cuento. Leerlo toma cerca de media hora."Bonsai" cuenta de manera algo disgregada algunos acontecimientos en las vida de dos jovenes chilenos, durante los estudios de literatura en la universidad y un poco después. La mayor parte transcurre en Santiago, unas pocas partes en Madrid. Desde el primer parrafo del libro nos cuentan que la mujer, Emilia, morirá joven, y que ahí se acaba la histori [...]

    29. I don't know where to start with this one. The fact that it's called Bonsai, since the novella is a compressed form of the novel. How the author equates taking care of a bonsai with writing. The characters and how they became my favorite literary couple right away. The literary name-dropping. That I read it in less than an hour. That it will stay with me forever.
