The Goalie’s Anxiety at the Penalty Kick

The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick 1

  When I finished reading the novella “The Goalie’s Anxiety at the Penalty Kick,” I wasn’t sure how to approach this work by Peter Handke. Did I like this book or not? Should I have perhaps started with one of his more recent works, instead of one of his earliest…

Way of the Peaceful Warrior

Put mirnog ratnika Peaceful warrior

  This book and I go way back… there’s a lot of history there. How much, I wonder… about seven or eight years? Maybe a year more? When I first saw the book “Way of the Peaceful Warrior”, its title (including the cover) caught my attention, as did some quotes…

Looking for Alaska

U potrazi za Aljaskom

  Wow… I must admit, I found myself reflecting after finishing John Green’s “Looking for Alaska”. I reminisced about my time in elementary, high school (and even college, why not), thinking about the people I met during my schooling. Of course, encountering each person in our lives shapes and defines…

Silence

Silence 2

  By chance, while browsing IMDB, I stumbled upon a review of the film adaptation of Shusaku Endo’s book “Silence,” directed by Martin Scorsese. While some consider this to be Scorsese’s finest cinematic work, others deem it his longest and most tedious (though whether these critics have read the eponymous…

A Whole Life

A Whole Life 4

  “Wow“… that was all I could utter after finishing this short book. “A Whole Life” by Robert Seethaler caught my attention for two somewhat trivial reasons. First, because it received praises from the moment it appeared in our bookstores (though, honestly, I never paid much attention to media reviews/critiques)….

A Hologram for the King

Dejv Egers - Hologram za kralja hologram for the king

  Although I initially intended to read Dave Eggers’ “The Circle” first (rumored to be quite intriguing), I ended up with another of his books, “A Hologram for the King.” I remember in 2016 a film based on this book was released, starring Tom Hanks in the lead role. However,…
