    One thought on “Abril despedaçado”

    1. It does not have to be a horror book to be horrifying. I was shocked by this novel and I learned some facts about (some) Albanian people that scared the shit out of me. It made me read more about the country's history and present (and discuss it with an Albanian GR friend) in order to understand the context that lead to the existence of Gjakmarrja (blood feuds) so my review will be probably long. To come soon after I put my thoughts in order.

    2. This is a strange book. When I lived in eastern Europe, I was told there were two sorts of Eastern European countries, those which were highly-developed and industrialized (Czechoslovakia, Poland, Hungary) and those which were not (Bulgaria, Romania) as well as those which were a mix of the two (Yugoslavia, Soviet Union) but no one knew anything about Albania. Reading this book, it's like the land that time forgot because you're never quite sure where you are in history. (As it turns out, it's A [...]

    3. "Broken April" is a haunting story with an out of time charm. There are not many novels around with such a simple and yet powerfully evocative style. More than the plot in itself what counts here is the atmosphere Kadare is able to recreate.I actually perceived the mist and the cold as well as the brightless nights and the wind-swept landscapes where the novel takes place with an uncommon intensity.As a reader who gets easily distracted, "Broken April" meant an unusual business to me: this book [...]

    4. Una novela muy interesante, con unos personajes muy bien trabajados y que trata un tema que hace que la lectura sea muy amena: el Kanun.

    5. When reading this book I recalled "Blindness" of Saramago. Broken April is haunting, dark, disturbing and yet strangely attractive. The narration is so matter of fact yet the chill of death is looming in every word. It is the story of the relentless Kanun holding sway over the Albanian mountainsmen. The currency of the Kanunis death and so death seems as ever-present as money is in our society. There is always a sense of weirdness and unreality in the way the Mountainsmen deal with death, reveng [...]

    6. ‘Broken April' is a historical fiction novel based on true facts about Albania's past. However, I thought a particular plot device, an ancient book of laws and social mores which is the source of the problems that the main character, Gjorg Berisha, endures, was a fictional invention of the author. Ffs, what real-life culture would codify into their common law rules about ritual assassinations, a cascading continuation of murder after murder of selected individuals to be passed down from genera [...]

    7. وقـتی که خـون آدم مشـخـصی گریبان انسـان را بگیرد، غلبه بر آن دشوار اسـت، ولی با خونی که معلوم نبود از کجـا سرچشـمه می گـیرد و کجا خـشـک می شـود چـه می توان کـرد؟ این خونی ساده نبود، بلکه سیلابهای خون نسل های انسانی بود که در سراسر فلات جاری می شد، خون جوان و پیر، از سالها و قرن ه [...]

    8. Set in the interwar years, this haunting novel tells of an Albanian blood feud: Gyakmarrja, as it affects several people: Gjorg [George], the unwilling killer of his murdered brother's killer; Bessian and Diana, a honeymooning couple who want to see the mountain area of Albania and to investigate the customs firsthand; and Mark, the "steward of the blood" [He collects what is called a "blood-tax" from a murderer's family and maintains Book of the Blood, giving details of every blood feud going b [...]

    10. Jings. Just about the most depressing book I have ever read: powerful, bleak and timeless. It's sometime in post-Ottoman, pre-Hoxha Albania and a blood feud is playing itself out through the eyes of a young mountaineer, who is hopelessly caught in the game, while a couple of urban honeymooners are rubbernecking their way around the High Plateau. Then it gets a bit Passage to India as done by Kafka. And it's drizzling in the grey mountains, where the widow in black sits by the road above the vill [...]

    12. A visceral breakdown of emotions. A darkness of souls. A terrific relationship between the eye and the world. Beautiful climax. A film.

    13. I’m happy to say that my first contact with Albanian literature has been a success. I had no idea what to expect since I didn’t know anything about the plot, or Kadare, or, as a matter of fact, Albania. I thought I saw an Albanian movie once, but I just checked and it’s actually a Serbian film [not the Serbian film, if you know what I mean, I hope you don’t, don’t google it!]. Anyway, the story begins with a man lying behind a ridge, freezing his butt off, a rifle in his hands, waiting [...]

    14. Κεντρικό θέμα του αρκετά καταθλιπτικού μα συνάμα εξαιρετικά καλογραμμένου βιβλίου του Κανταρέ, είναι ο εντελώς παράλογος και ακατανόητος Αλβανικός κώδικας τιμής (και αίματος), ονόματι Κανούν. Δεν ήξερα τίποτα για το συγκεκριμένο θέμα, δυσκολεύτηκα πολύ να πιστέψω ότι τα γ [...]

    15. This is a beautifully written, bleak and haunting novel, set between the wars in the mountains of northern Albania. It is very short and I read it in a day. The story centres on a family caught up in the blood feuds of this region, which sadly still exist, according to recent newspaper reports. The book centres on a complicated etiquette of death included in the Kanun, a set of traditional laws. After one man kills to avenge an insult, a duty of revenge continues until all the men of a household [...]

    16. The Albanian highlands are a gloomy place where hard-nosed and hard-scrabble peasants eke out a precarious living farming corn. Even the mountain fairies in their tales seem to be hard-nosed and hard-scrabble. What glamour there is in the peasants' lives derives from their participation in self-perpetuating blood-feuds, regulated (like everything else) by the ancient set of oral laws known as the Kanun.What sort of person goes there on his honeymoon? A fool, if you ask me. A somewhat romantic fo [...]

    17. „წყარო“, „აღმოცენება“, „ჩქეფა“, „გაფურჩქნა“, „ყლორტი“, „შობა“, „დასაბამი“ - ეს ის სიტყვებია, რასაც ინგლისური „Spring“ აღნიშნავს და, მართალია, ლინგვისტი არ ვარ და გადაუმოწმებელ რამეს ვამბობ, მაინ [...]

    18. The version I read was in English. It was a translation of the French translation of the original Albanian. I feel that the story has not suffered because of this double translation.This haunting tale, which revolves around the Law of Lek, the codification of feuding in traditional Albania, is brief but brilliant. As in his other works, Ismail Kadare captures a great deal with a few words.Read this and anything else by this author.

    19. არ მეგონა სვანეთის გარდა სისხლის აღების ტრადიცია სხვაგანაც თუ იყო სადმე. თურმე ყოფილა ალბანეთის მთიანეთში. კარგი რომანია. მძიმე, დეპრესიული. მთავარი გმირის ფიქრებით კანუნის უაზრობაზე, მა [...]

    21. I realize that I should like this book - lots of people like this book. I read the ending twice and it just didn't happen. I didn't like the ending, although I can grasp the "poeticness" (yes, I just made up that word) of it. I struggled with the story, with a story line that was intriguing, but bloody. It was just a painful read all the way around and I pushed myself to get through this relatively short book. I wouldn't recommend it and maybe after we discuss it at book club I will appreciate i [...]

    23. In "Broken April", Ismael Kadare, Albania's best-known writer, focuses on the blood feud traditions of his country's uplands. The Albanian blood feud is far beyond the angry impulse that compels even the studious Hamlet to revenge his father; instead, its rituals are laid down in the law that governs this part of Albania. The intent of the law is to regulate the blood feud, to channel it in a way that keeps it from raging out of control, but the practical effect is to create a landscape of night [...]

    24. An amazing work of fiction that explains a dismal, distressing, oppressive, and highly ritualized code of revenge in an obscure area of Albania. Much to my dismay, this code of revenge is fact. (I googled it.) Perhaps this is Kadare's point. The book, hands down, is my favorite "dark" book because it so explictly depicts the karmic absurdity of revenge.One wonders if revenge is actually a natural response or perhaps a form of defensive behavior gone wrong. At any rate, our desires for revenge de [...]

    25. Esta breve pero intensa novela de Kadaré es simplemente adictiva. Contiene lo mejor de la literatura de viajes, rigor histórico y ficción. Kadaré recrea a la perfección el ambiente rural, místico y cultural de las zonas montañosas de Albania, donde se vive de forma paralela al resto de la vida 'urbana'. Incluye muchos nombres y conceptos en albanés, pero no agobian, sino todo lo contrario. La palabra de honor que rige en las montañas albanesas se nos presenta aquí a través de diferent [...]

    26. I absolutely loved this book-- a well-written bittersweet love story that is set in Albania. The novel really explores the lifestyle of those who lived on the high plateaus of the country in the early 20th century and their code of ethics, (namely the never-ending blood feuds that allow a death for a death, with family constantly having to sacrifice one of their own).

    27. Last year, I made a goal of “reading around the world,” an effort to read at least one book from every country. I'm not working down the list regionally or alphabetically. I'm not oversaturating my reading list all at once with these titles. I'm just making a conscious effort to explore the world through books as I'm able.Broken April is perhaps the most eye-opening view of a world I knew nothing about. Set in mountains of Albania, Broken April is the story of a man bound to an extremely str [...]

    28. Haunting and powerful novel set in the remote mountains of Albania. Gjorg has killed the murderer of his brother, in accordance with theKanunan ancient and complex code that governs the lives of the mountain people. He is subject to a truce of thirty days, and then can be killed in his turn. This is how the blood feud continues between the families involved.Bessian, a writer, and his wife Diana are visiting the area on honeymoon. They briefly encounter Gjorg, and the impact of this passing momen [...]

    29. I read my first Ismail Kadare novel, Broken April, for the Albania stop of my Around the World in Eighty Books challenge. I've wanted to read his work for quite a while, and am pleased to report that I was entirely swept away with this novel, so much so that the extended review which I was planning to write went out of the window rather early on. The translation here is smooth and accessible, and the writing is often quite beautiful in an understated way. Broken April is filled with fascinating [...]
