4.0 out of 5 stars Everyone is in the Tartar steppe, 12 Nov. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: The Tartar Steppe (Paperback)
You read it and you will see that "Giovanni Drogo" is you. The story written by Buzzati is terribly true: the life of our main character in the fortress is a metaphora of our life. Drogo is waiting for a climax during his whole life, something that may give a meaning to his life and to his efforts. A life sacrificed to his carreer. People in the fortress are cast away from society waiting for a reward, they are like a community inside a prison where someone wants to escape and someone has given up any hope and feel unfit for the actual world. Nothing is happening, nothing will happen. When something that Drogo was waiting for his whole life is arriving, it' too late and his attention is now focusing on his life that is about to end. This book wakes you up and makes you think that maybe you are in the fortress waiting for something.Maybe you should get out before it is too late. This book will definitively give you a shake.
