    The epic journey of survival against all odds that moulds the identity of the nameless boy continues in this second installment of St fansson s trilogy, setting the perfect foreground tone for the fiercest struggle between man and the hostile wilderness of the Icelandic remote lands.Divided in two main sections the youthful main character ponders about the value of literature, getting acquainted with it in the first part of the narration and missing it acutely in the second one, where the extreme weather conditions become the main protagonist of the story, befogging the voice of the omniscient narrator with inner monologue, tragicomic dialogue and the incantatory poetry that breathes life into the menacing yet wondrous presence of the landscape that consumes it all.The boundaries separating Heaven and Hell, Sky and Earth, the Living and the Dead, dissipate into a muddled blankness that evokes the oblivion of non being.What is the use of printed pages in the face of the unbearable iciness that benumbs hearts and drowns men in the depths of the Polar Sea Why read Milton, ...

    Impressions through the clouded lens of snowflakes, the eponymous sorrow of angelsDeath, ever present, death Lurking in the murderous winter landscape, the roof of Hell Lurking in empty bellies and a cough that won t stop.Lingering in memories, dreams, and visions.The dead, entwine with the living, urging some to live, but luring others towards death Does one betray the dead by continuing to live How to bear the guilt of being alive and desiring life By the anchoring bonds with family and friends who live.By the power of promises, carried in hopeful hearts Life, tenacious but ephemeral, battles relentless hardship across the barren snow.For what Delivering letters Letters And the dead Optimism or idiocy what s the real difference Because Words are the seventh wonder of the world Words from one soul to another.Words to change the world.Assassins or saviours Bullets or rescue teams Words from beyond the grave.Words that may take postman Jens and the boy to theirs.And then, after agonising survival, an oddly comic, but possibly deadly descent At the end of the world, coffee warm as Heaven, black as Hell may save, but liquor can slay.There s a fiercely independent woman serving both, her generosity hidden beneath the wings of her raven s heart.And a boy, who doesn t want physical strength or reckless masculinity, but words and education.If he lives.Bodies dead bodies, lost bodies, bodies reaching out, ...

    Beklemmend mooi Het tweede deel van deze trilogie gaat voornamelijk over een barre tocht van de jongen met de postbode Jens, waarin hij zichzelf, de dood en het leven in allerlei facetten tegenkomt Het boek eindigt letterlijk op een cliffhanger Net als het eerste deel is dit weer een aanrader.

    Este segundo livro da trilogia Para so e Inferno relata uma viagem pica atrav s do inverno e das tempestades de neve e gelo nos fiordes do norte da Isl ndia Uma alegoria sobre as batalhas que o ser humano tem de travar com o mundo e consigo pr prio, e a expia o dos fardos que carrega.A parte inicial do romance, que antecede a viagem do rapaz e do carteiro Jens pareceu me estender se em demasia, tanto em n mero de p ginas como em detalhes e sobretudo no n mero de personagens fugazes com nomes impronunci veis e sem contributo relevante para o desenrolar na narrativa A partir do momento em que a viagem se inicia a leitura torna se mais fluida e interessante, e as personagens que vamos encontrando pelo caminho nunca s o desprovidas de significado No final o cliffhanger convida leitura do terceiro livro cuja edi o portuguesa ainda se aguarda Dois homens imersos nos seus pensamentos enquanto viajam sob um temporal daqueles n o uma coisa simples, tendo em conta que se tem de usar toda e energia apenas para continuar a caminhar em frente, ir de um lado para o outro sem morrer, o que signifi...

    It snows a great deal here and the sorrow of the heavens is beautiful, it s a cover protecting the earth from the frost and bringing light to a heavy winter, but it can also be cold and devoid of mercy The Sorrow of Angels, Jon K Stefansson The Sorrow of Angels strikes me as a lovely, poetic title for a novel set in Iceland In this second novel, Jon Stefansson continues the story of Heaven and Hell during the season when winter segues into spring, and tells it with the same philosophical and lyrical elegance The blinding beauty of snow, the ferocity of the winds, and the pitiless and overpowering force of wintry gales envelop everything that happens in this story I read this book while visiting Iceland this summer when the temperature hovered between 2 and at most 12 degrees Celsius I was also thrown off my feet once by exceedingly strong winds when trying to close the car door If this is summer, then I shudder to think what life is like in winter I read this novel then with a heightened awareness of the sorrow of angels, a phrase Stefansson uses to refer to snow angels weeping in Iceland When people live on the border of the habitable world, snow is merciless and potentially deadly Stefansson has myriad des...

    Depois de ter sido completamente arrebatada pelo primeiro volume Para so e Inferno , as minhas expectativas estavam bastante elevadas e Stef nsson n o me desiludiu A escrita maravilhosa, lembra me muito Saramago, frases bem constru das e uma economia de palavras para dizer tanto, mas tanto Neste volume, dividido em 4 partes, destaco a ltima parte em que o rapaz e o carteiro Jens s o enviados para o fim do mundo , no meio de uma tempestade, numa regi o t o in spita como a Isl ndia uma viagem pica de sobreviv ncia, homem contra natureza, que leva ao crescimento interior das personagens Temos tamb m o debate sobre as quest es da vida e da morte o que nos leva a lutar pela sobreviv ncia numa vida cheia de dor, com apenas alguns momentos escassos de felicidade Aguardo com grande expectat...
