Ota Benga (Italian Edition)

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Il libro sembra finire prima ancora di cominciare. Ad ogni capitolo nuovo, ti aspetti che inizi la storia, ma non inizia mai. Non si capisce chi e' il/la protagonista: Ota Benga o la signora dalle origini greche? E' il dramma di Ota Benga a fare da tema conduttore o la contorta figura della signora greca?
Onestamente non mi e' piaciuto.

3.0 out of 5 stars I surely got the idea that such a man has nothing to teach to anybody but just had and has a great fantasy in creating soulless, 18 Feb. 2015
I just read by chance O caminho de Santiago (because I wanted to improve my Portuguese) and now by another chance (because I found the book on the shelves) I read this biography. So I did not know anything about Paulo Coelho nor I had any opinion on this writer. Honestly while reading this book I felt chilled for the high cowardice of the man, for a slum life history, for a "nothing man": exactly the way the critics attacked Coelho in Brazil at his first appearance on the scene. Well aware of the Evangelical taught not to judge, I surely got the idea that such a man has nothing to teach to anybody but just had and has a great fantasy in creating soulless novels. Reading is always a good exercise; so if Coelho contributed to increase the number of readers...
Congratulation to him who allowed his biography (not a wonder) to be published. (Just for money, I suspect?)

2.0 out of 5 stars fine with little children, 7 Jan. 2015

They are too small: fine with little children, not fully suitable for adults; the quality also not excellent: some of them not well filed with risk of causing injury.

they leave the color on the tongue: you should take time to explain the patient (or anxious parents) that it is not poisonous nor causing harm. To avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars As a grandpa you can imagine how I was delighted. Apart from the personal feeling, 7 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read these simple and short tales to my grandson before sleeping: it was marvelous. How I was surprised by my small grandson who was trying to make his conclusions before reading the author's one. As a grandpa you can imagine how I was delighted. Apart from the personal feeling, this demonstrate that Esopus is still teaching after some thousand of years.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is of a pleasant reading: while not describing anything extraordinary, it is very well written on a daily life undertakings. A normal family facing the trouble to live in a far different environment. The author is never wearing the dress of a writer, but dealing very well in his writing. In the book there are not big or exciting adventures but it is well depicted the simple way of living. One very good thing: the book shows how with simple mind and common sense you can meet different culture and share your lives. Good job.

Yevu:
Ho letto questo libro con una aspettativa di imprese eroiche da parte di missionari e volontari.
La mente dei „bianchi“ è geneticamente orientata a concepire il mondo in bianco e nero: con una freccia che ha una sola direzione: dal bianco al nero. Così ci hanno insegnato e condizionato a pensare.
Nello scorrere della lettura di Yevu, ho provato disagio, ho sentito quasi una ribellione dentro di me: una reazione immunitaria. Qaalcosa non quadrava.
Il mondo in questo libro è posto su un livello unico senza frecce di direzione.
Cadono i prototipi di „buono e cattivo“, „bianco e nero“ „bravo o farabutto“.
Il libro mi ha „scombussolato“ i miei princìpi. Mi aspettavo un libro scritto a misura delle mie aspettative.
Quando l‘ho finito, non ho trovato eroi o diavoli ma mi sono come sentito liberato da una gabbia mentale ed ho cominciato a pensare che il mondo dovrebbe essere più uguale.
Complimenti all‘autore che ha tradotto esistenzialmente il concetto di uguaglianza.

5.0 out of 5 stars easy to be read, 24 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I did not finish reading it yet, but the book looks courageous, as well as his writer. The book is well written, easy to be read, offering lot of points for reflection.
The style is also different from books on similar topic: the whole story takes steps from an uncommon background.
It is also interesting to note that the writer, an African himself from South Africa, has an appalling approach the the Real Africa, as if he is coming from a different continent.
It is a pleasant book however while posing philosophical dilemmas.
I recommend it.
