I didn't actually read it; I listened to it. And the problem may very well have been the narrator rather than the story. As I listened, I suspected that her careful enunciation took all humor and charm out of the telling of the story. ( )
  KittyCunningham | Apr 26, 2021 |
A magnificent work of Russian folklore for grown-ups. It is both grim and sensuous as it winds the tropes of the genre with the upheaval of post-revolutionary Russia. A horrifying and lovely fairy tale. ( )
  Zoes_Human | Apr 24, 2021 |
A sensuous, yet bleak, lively and dynamic, yet grim book. ( )

what the fuck? ( )

Is interesting and well written but I don't care for the style ( )

Deathless performs the highest function of a problematic novel. It reveals more about the writer's technique and strengths than a polished, impregnable work might.
tilføjet af Jannes | RedigerStrange Horizons, Erin Horáková (Jul 25, 2011)
 
Another intricate fantasy from Valente, based on what feels like the entire panoply of Russian folktales. ...scenes, people, myths and history intertwine. It's dazzling but intensely self-involved.

From the year nineteen forty
I look out on everything as if from a high tower
As if bidding farewell
To that from which I long ago parted.
As if crossing myself
And descending beneath dark arches.
—Anna Akhmatova

Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
In a city by the sea which was once called St. Petersburg, then Petrograd, then Leningrad, then, much later, St. Petersburg again, there stood a long, thin house on a long, thin street. By a long, thin window, a child in a pale blue dress and pale green slippers waited for a bird to marry her.
“That's how you get deathless, volchitsa. Walk the same tale over and over, until you wear a groove in the world, until even if you vanished, the tale would keep turning, keep playing, like a phonograph, and you'd have to get up again, even with a bullet through your eye, to play your part and say your lines.”
The rapt pupil will be forgiven for assuming the Tsar of Death to be wicked and the Tsar of Life to be virtuous. Let the truth be told: There is no virtue anywhere. Life is sly and unscrupulous, a blackguard, wolfish, severe. In service to itself, it will commit any offence. So, too, is Death possessed of infinite strategies and a gaunt nature- but also mercy, also grace and tenderness. In his own country, Death can be kind.
Morality is more dependent on the state of one's stomach than of one's nation.
Death is not like that. [...] You will live as you live anywhere. With difficulty, and grief. Yes, you are dead. And I and my family and everyone, always, forever. All dead like stones. But what does it matter? You still have to go to work in the morning. You still have to live.
