    日熄 author Yan Lianke kindle  Paperback à tushnahram 日熄 author Yan LianI really liked the premise of this book but reading it felt like a chore Particularly annoying is the writer's tendency to repeat sentences or phrases For example In front of the shop everyone was nervous as though the air were too thin Out in the streets everyone was nervous as though the air were too thin Or certain dialogue is always said twice one after the other If this is supposed to be a literary style I am just not digging it Perhaps other people found merit in this book Maybe something got lost in tranlationediting I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

    日熄 author Yan Lianke kindle  Paperback à tushnahram 日熄 author Yan LianIt's an imaginative satire of modern China In a rural setting and over the course of one night people start dreamwalking carrying out activities that they were thinking about or doing before they went to sleep Slowly the night becomes chaotic and violent Lin is a 14 year old boy and his parents try to stem the tied and work to making the sun come up again and the night to endMy main criticism of this interesting interpretation of the dangers of modernisation the great dream of renewal is it seemed to meander repetitively for some time before something new was introduced The cheeky thoughts of Lin and how he viewed his world bef

    日熄 author Yan Lianke kindle  Paperback à tushnahram 日熄 author Yan LianRead for a book club assignment Almost every sentence in this book is expressed as a metaphor or simile Also the narrator and characters repeat themselves as though the reader won't understand unless without reading something multiple times It's interesting at first but soon grows tiring Perhaps this is a normal way of writing in Chinese but I found it got in the way of the storyThe story itself is an interesting way to present criticism of the government in a fictitious manner which I assume helps the author avoid punishment The concept of people reverting to their base instincts while dream walking is compelling The author makes fun of his own books in multiple ways throughout Firstly he make cameo appearances as a neighbor and uncle of the 14 year old narr
