This review is from: The Malady of Death (Duras, Marguerite) (Paperback)
This is a book for those that want to understand the pain of the human soul. It tells a story of a person that had died inside, but still continues to exist in the world of the living.
He desperately tries to love in order to live again, but fails, because he is ill. His illness has a name, it is called - "The Malady of Death". I assure you, this is not just another french book. This book is written by Marguerite Duras.
If you have ever read anything of hers, you would know what I mean. She writes with thoughts instead of sentences, and that alone captivates reader's imagination. This particular creation will inevitably leave a trace in your memory, because her work is not only unforgetable, it is at times disturbing.
She knows the other, unknown side to the human soul, and she carries her message across skillfully. If you are one of the people that questions and desires to understand - this is a book for you. Every word has it's place, every sentence has it's mission. Indulge.
