HASH(0x935d169c) out of 5 stars A beautiful book 14 Dec. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm used to divide good books in two categories: the first category includes nice books that are well written, with an interesting texture; they provide the reader with all the details leaving no space to my fantasy and my imagination. The second category of books put my mind in a new dimension, they help me to discover new ideas and emotions. "Yesterday" from Agota Kristof belongs to that category, it is written in a very essential way, with the minimal set of words, no a single paragraph can be removed, neither a single word without destroying it. If you think that reading a book is a different experience than watching a movie, this book is for you. The few words of "Yesterday" can drive you to discover new sensations, new emotions, and unknown places of your mind. In my opinion, it's definitively a very good book.

HASH(0x935ce258) out of 5 stars once you start, you can't leave it till you finish reading it! 22 Sept. 2011
By hilda sitges - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had read Agota Kristof's The Notebook which i found outstanding! so when i knew she had this other book i had to have it.
It was worth the effort of having it sent from England through Amazon, it was cheap and arrived very fast, earlier than even expected.
It's a book you can read in one afternoon or night depending on your reading habbits.
It's a good story and you can tell that some of the situations are similar to the ones in The Notebook. The atmosphere created by the
author is fantastic! but still this book compared to the other one is just a nice story. I strongly recommend to read The Notebook it
surely is the masterpiece of Kristof. However, to have an overview of her, its important to read as much as possible of her work.

HASH(0x935ce1b0) out of 5 stars A love story hard as stone 17 Sept. 2011
By Letizia Sechi - Published on
Format: Paperback
A love story hard as stone because despite how much they love each other they can't be together. Because despite she's married to a mediocre husband something insurmountable prevents them to stay together. And yet their love is so clear and simple that no heart could resist reading this story. But don't be wrong: Agota Kristof tells us about Tobias and Line without fuss or easy tricks. This story is crude, dry, direct. Like a stone.
