4.0 out of 5 stars Zorba still dances., 5 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zorba the Greek (FF Classics) (Paperback)
When Mark Twain wrote that the secret to life and happiness was to, "Dance like no one was watching, sing like nobody's listening and love like you've never been hurt", he may have had in mind a great spirit like Alexis Zorbas (Zorba the Greek). There is no more life-affirming novel than Nikos Kazantzakis's great tale and no more life-affirming character in all of literature, with the possible exception of Huckleberry Finn, than Zorba as he leads his grieving and bewildered "Boss" towards the light . It is the great spiritual masterpiece of the twentieth century and I turn to it about every seven years or so simply to remind myself that life is worth living and that giving of oneself, which also necessitates the ability to take graciously what is offered, is all.
