It felt like a completely different book from the last time. Once I'm amazed at the way books can mean very different things, depending on who we are when we read them.This time for me The Blizzard was about how what one thinks is important in life turns out to be not important at all. It's about how even our

In this case, The Blizzard is the first that I've ever not appreciated/felt/enjoyed a Russian author. Russian (and Romanian, obviously, and in general Eastern European) literature molds, reflects, illuminates, and inspires my soul, because it is born in a unique landscape that was also my childhood, my source of personal myths and ways of looking at things. This nostal

    Метель E–book/E–pub Whenever I review of foreign language work of speculative fiction, I find myself including a statement reflecting my certainty that readers of the work in its original language – Russian, Spanish, Estonian, whatever – have a fuller experience of its subtleties, humor, and imagery than I. That statement usually comes towards the end of the review, but with Vladimir Sorokin’s The Blizzard, I have d

Take Vladimir Sorokin's The Blizzard: A Novel could very well be set in the 19th century except for a cellphone at one point and a mention that Stalin happened a long time ago.The story has a dramatic start. Platon Ilich Garin is a physician traveling during a major blizzard with vaccinations against the Bolivian Black Plague, which has bro

A doctor's struggle to deliver a vaccine to a remote village during a blizzard. Features tiny (and huge) horses, mind altering drugs and giants. What's not to like?

The Blizzard is thoroughly stylized to the Russian classical fiction of the nineteenth century with an exception of the one little twist And this little twist is a grand shift in reality Now the lot of ye we gonna go for a drive Crouper asked his horses and they neighed even louderThe younger ones reared and bucked the shaft horses and the steppe horses snorted shook their manes and nodded Crouper lowered his large rough hand still holding the piece of bread in the other and began petting the horses His fingers caressed their backs stroked their manes and they neighed tossing their heads and stretching their necks They playfully nipped his hand with their tiny teeth and pressed their warm nostrils against his fingers Each horse was no bigger than a partridge He knew every single one of them and could tell you what its story was where it was from and how he got it how it worked who its parents were and describe its likes and dislikes its personalityThere are normal sized horses and there are tiny horses And there are tremendous horses as wellThere are normal sized people and there are midgets And there are also giantsThen the plot starts developing as in the famous Alexander Pushkin s poem Devils On and on our coach advances Little bell goes din din din Round are vast unknown expanses Terror terror is within Faster coachman Can t sir sorry Horses sir are nearly dead I am blinded all is blurry All snowed up can t see ahead Sir I tell you on the level We have strayed we ve lost the trail What can we do when a devil Drives us whirls us round the vale So it goes but slowly the story turns into a kind of barbaric dystopia with a piuant flavor of an exotic horror taleThe huge wide object was completely covered in snow and rose up and up Throwing his travel bags down in the snow the doctor wiped his pince nez with his scarf and tilted his head back He couldn t understand what was in front of him At first he thought it was a pointed haystack covered in snow But he touched it and realized that it wasn t made of hay just snow His eyes agog the doctor stepped farther back Suddenly at the top of the strange vast snowy shape he made out the likeness of a human face He realized that he was standing in front of a snowman of monstrous proportions with a huge erect phallus of snowSomewhere deep inside in every modern man his prehistoric origins are hidden sleeping and they may awaken any moment

I guess as they say there s a first for everything In this case The Blizzard is the first that I ve ever not appreciatedfeltenjoyed a Russian author Russian and Romanian obviously and in general Eastern European literature molds reflects illuminates and inspires my soul because it is born in a uniue landscape that was also my childhood my source of personal myths and ways of looking at things This nostalgia for childhood is nothing special in my case reading RussianEastern European lit is just how I go back So usually I love it all sticking to the Russians for now from Solzhenitsyn s systematic and descriptive analytics to Dostoevsky s masterful psychoanalyses to Bulgakov s absurd whimsical surrealism to Petrushevskaya s heart wrenching portraits of humanity in pain to Tolstoy s romanticism Within all this variety there is a certain Russian nessEastern European ness spirit imbuing all these works Which is what The Blizzard seemed for me to be missing and which is why it didn t uite facilitate my going back despite Sorokin s heavy use of Russian motifs such as the furious snowstorm the vodka the brilliant whimsy etcAs I uestioned my reaction it didn t take me long to realize the essential ingredient that I value above all others and that threads all the aforementioned works the humor You will not meet anyone dead pan than an Eastern European especially not one born in that era Some of us are basically living dead pan you really can t take anything we say seriously because we don t ourselves and yet somehow we are often taken most seriously of all It s a bit like Communist Zen one learns to detach and to view the whole fiasco from a distance At which point of course it all looks absurd and it s clear that nothing is real In The Blizzard Sorokin seems to attempt this effect through cosmetics introducing for example a uite bizarre world of tiny horses the size of a partridge and humongous men the size of a three story house Still these insertions of the absurd did not serve any purpose did not give any broader meaning to the narrative did not convey any particular mood nor did they inspire contemplation I m not sure how to articulate properly at this point reflection needed for now I felt I was reading an ideas soup of ingredients picked up from The Greats that did not uite work out because the broth used fell apartseparatedotherwise ruined everything But perhaps I am wrong I am very conflicted Perhaps I misunderstood the whole thing I should like or probably like love Sorokin if precedent is to be trusted So this review may change in the future
