Late period Henry James thinks too little happens in this book. Late period Dickens thinks this book might be just a tad too long.
Hemingway is a bit uncomfortable with the way women are depicted, even though half the book is told from a woman's perspective. So, put it in the "I wanted to like this way more than I did" pile. I would guess in word count it gets up towards the big Russians.
Nothing happens, and when something does happen, Late period Henry James thinks too little happens in this book. Nothing happens, and when something does happen, it's either ludicrous melodrama or dull love story. To give Saizarbitoria his due, it's technically impressive at times: using the present tense for that many pages, without it feeling ridiculous, is a unique feat; the weaving of history and present is very well done; there's just enough meta-commentary to keep it from sinking into a Eugenides'-Marriage-Plot, Franzen's-Freedom level of faux-naive tedium.
But the best things about the book are its lineation of character which shouldn't take this long and its sense of Basque identity and that region's and people's history, which is perversely ignored in favor of a doctor who gets it on with a hot American girl. Someone could write a solid grad school paper about the book's intertextuality, both explicit Frisch's equally dull Montauk and implicit as the doctor and girl suggest, there's a lot of James in here. Someone could write a good essay about Basque history, using the novel's characters.
But I can't imagine anyone wanting to read a book this long, and this uninteresting.
With one exception: there are, of course, people who love a good disappointing love story, and this is for them. If you only read one book about disappointing love in , make it this one, because it'll take you most of the year. Sign in. Watch now.
