Oh I just loved it!! A quick eloquent read. That little rat was my best friend and I wish I had never had to leave him in those pages. ( )

Un llibre agradable sobre filosofia i amor a la literatura.

Immaginiamo una Messina in mezzo al Mediterraneo così come Shakespeare se la poteva immaginare: esotica, viva, crocevia di magheggi, che avrebbero fatto di una festa nuziale il complicato intreccio per una giostra degli intrichi. Immaginiamola seguendo con le orecchie la parlata di quei personaggi che, nel vivo di un dialetto carico di umori e ambiguità, dipana le trame di una vicenda originariamente semplice, ma dai risvolti complicatissimi. Immaginiamo che tutto ciò sia il frutto di un carattere tipicamente mediterraneo, se non propriamente siciliano, ed ecco che potremo anche credere, anche solo per una volta, che William Shakespeare, di Stratford, sia potuto essere quel tale Michele Agnolo Florio Crollalanza partito in fuga da Messina. Poiché non c'è nulla di più meravigliosamente siciliano che il poter complicare, da un dato semplice, una vicenda fino a farla diventare surreale. Ecco, questo 'Troppu traffici ppi nenti' è il modello eterno di un carattere terribilmente semplice, come quello siciliano, che ama complicarsi l'esistenza in un continuo arrovugliarsi su se stesso.

I must say that, on first place, I chose to read that book because of its cover. Among the hundreds of book in the book shop, this one drew my attention*. A skinny, with big, fallen ears and expressive, pitiful, almost human eyes rat was looking at we from the bookshelf. And I couldn't resist its charm.

The book didn't disappoint me. Firmin turned out to be as human as the one on the cover. At least inside. Born in the basement of a bookshop, soon he developed a deep relationship with books. But from the outside, he was still a rat. A pretty stunted one, much to his regret. A book with the adventures of a rat doesn't sound that interesting at the beginning, but Firmin will steal your heart after a few pages. Misunderstood by both humans and rats, the book book becomes a too gloomy in some parts, but it's a book that I'd definitively recommend.

*Not this one. I bought the "Seix Barral, Biblioteca Formentor", Spanish edition. ( )

Un relato de humor negro sobre el poder de la literatura.Nacido en una pequeña librería en un decadente barrio de Boston, Firmin aprende a leer digiriendo su nido hecho de un libro cortado a tiras. Pero rápidamente comprende que una rata culta es una rata solitaria. Marginada de su familia, busca la amistad de su héroe, el librero, y de un escritor de ciencia ficción fracasado. A medida que Firmin navega por las calles sombrías en busca de amor y comprensión, su soledad y su miedo se tornan humanos e irremediablemente conmovedores

One day Chuang Tzu fell asleep, and while he slept he dreamed that he was a butterfly, flying happily about.
And this butterfly did not know that it was Chuang
Tzu dreaming. Then he awoke, to all appearances
himself again, but now he did not know whether he
was a man dreaming that he was a butterfly or a
butterfly dreaming that he was a man.
The Teachings of Chuang Tzu
Had he kept a pain diary, the only entrywould have been one word: Myself.

I had always imagined that my life story, if and when I wrote it, would have a great first line: something lyric like Nabokov's "Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins"; or if I could not do lyric, then something sweeping like Tolstoy's "All happy familes are alike, but every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."

If you are lonely, I think it helps to be a little crazy as long as you don't overdo it.
Jerry used to say that if you didn't want to live your life over again, then you had wasted it.
And you don't have to believe stories to love them. I love all stories. I love the progression of beginning, middle, and end. I love the slow accumulation of meaning, the misty landscapes of the imagination, the mazy walks, the wooded slopes, the reflecting pools, the tragic twists and comic stumbles. (page 39, Delta trade, 2009)
It was soon painfully clear that when he looked at me what he mainly saw was a cute animal, clownish and a little stupid, something like a very small dog with buckteeth. He had no inkling of my true character, that I was in fact grossly cynical, moderately vicious, and a melancholy genius, or that I had read more books than he had.
