Bieguni AUTHOR Olga Tokarczuk review ✓ 104 Przez siedemnastowieczne gabinety osobliwości po współczesne hale odlotów – Olga Tokarczuk zabiera czytelników w niezwykłą podróż przez różne miejsca i czas. Rating 25This is a book that demands a lot of mental work and at slightly than 400 pages a considerable time investment While I don t exactly regret reading it which is something I suppose I was far less impressed with it than most I d like to have to show for my time than I do This is a fragmented chaotic and even careless book roughly organized around the topics of travel and anatomy As advertised it is not a traditional or conventional novel perhaps not a novel at all It s a collection of loosely connected stories many of them inconclusive anecdotes facts a lot of pseudo facts information that masuerades as having a foundation in reality ruminations and attempts at playfulness cleverness some of them self conscious or self referential It seems that Tokarczuk did a fair bit of consulting of Wikipedia and who knows what other sources to create her book She marvels at the online collaborative encyclopaedia than once in Flights Whatever the case a lot of the information Tokarczuk presents in her book is just flat out wrong Dark matter for example does not account for three uarters of the universe According to NASA it makes up about 27% while 68% of the universe is dark energy Any basic anatomy or neurology text will tell you we do not as Tokarczuk alleges owe our short term memory to the hippocampus The hippocampus is actually involved in long term memory storage Atat rk whose reforms came in the 1920s was not responsible for the cruel removal of dogs from ConstantinopleIstanbul to an island in the Bosporus where they would die of thirst and starvation This came in the early 1900s according to humanities and law professor Colin Dayan in her 2016 book With Dogs at the Edge of Life Columbia University Press and other sources Is Tokarczuk s carelessness with facts in this book intentional some sort of deliberate post modern disregard for accuracy or is it a result of translator or editorial carelessness I don t know but I don t see how it serves her meditation on travel and anatomy After I encountered several such errors I mistrusted the author Why was I struggling to parse her sometimes tedious lectures on travel psychology and discussions of imaginary psychological syndromes that had no foundation in reality The book increasingly became a sort of futile game I didn t care to participate in While I enjoyed a couple of the longer stories Tokarczuk included for example the story of a New Zealand biologist whose work involves the extermination of invasive species returning to her native Poland to facilitate the assisted suicide of a former lover and another about a despairing Russian wife and mother who rides the subway for days on end to escape her hopeless home life for me this book just didn t come together The idea that things in motion aren t ultimately as subject to entropy as things at rest just seemed silly A book that initially struck me as stimulating and clever soon lost its lustre Flights turned out to be less than the sum of its parts and certainly overhyped

Now the winner of the Man Booker International prize 2018 which was well deserved This is my third book from the Man Booker International prize shortlist and might just be my new favourite book of the year so farWhether or not this is a novel is debatable It is of an uncategorisable mixture of 116 short pieces varying in length from a single sentence to over 30 pages On the whole the longer pieces are short stories and the shorter ones thoughts observations and uirky pieces of science or historyTokarczuk has a uesting curiosity which is eually at home discussing travel exploration the history of anatomy and the science and ethics of preservation techniues such as plastination The thematic logic is sometimes opaue but becomes clearer as the book proceedsLike short stories the component chapters are best read in a single sitting I would have liked a table of contents to make it easier to find suitable break points and I decided to create my own which I have included as an appendix belowThere are also 12 rather intriguing historical maps scattered among the text and once again their relevance is a little unclearOne of the most striking pieces appears near the end It treats the uncontrollable spread of plastics in the modern world as a study in evolution the bag becomes an ultra successful organism which spreads by anemophily wind pollinationThis is a uniue fascinating and thought provoking book Highly recommended If you want a professional review I recommend this one from the Guardian Table of ContentsPage Title7 Here I am8 The World in your Head16 Your Head in the World21 Syndrome23 Cabinet of Curiosities25 Seeing is Knowing28 Seven years of Trips29 Guidance from Cioran30 Kunicki Water i39 Benedictus ui Venit39 Panopticon39 Kunicki Water ii58 Everywhere and Nowhere61 Airports63 Returning to one s Roots64 Travel Sizes65 Mano di Giovanni Battista66 The Original and the Copy66 Trains for Cowards69 Abandoned Apartment69 The Book of Infamy75 Guidebooks76 New Athens78 Wikipedia79 Citizens of the World Pick up Your Pens79 Travel Psychology Lectio Brevis I85 The Right Time and Place85 Instructions86 Ash Wednesday Feast102 North Pole Expeditions103 The Psychology of an Island103 Purging the Map104 In Pursuit of Night108 Sanitary Pads109 Relics Peregrinatio ad Loca Sancta110 Belly Dance111 Meridians112 Unus Mundus113 Harem Menchu s Tale123 Another of Menchu s Tales124 Cleopatras124 A Very Long uarter of an Hour124 Apuleius the Donkey126 Media Presenters126 Atat rk s Reforms127 Kali Yuga129 Wax Model Collections132 Dr Blau s Travels i147 Josefina Soliman s First Letter to Franz I Emperor of Austria150 Among the Maori150 Dr Blau s Travels ii170 Plane of Profligates171 Pilgrim s Make up171 Josefina Soliman s Second Letter to Franz I Emperor of Austria173 Sarira174 The Bodhi Tree176 Home is my Hotel177 Travel Psychology Lectio Brevis II180 Compatriots181 Travel Psychology Conclusion183 The Tongue is the Smallest Muscle183 Speak Speak184 Frog and Bird186 Lines Planes and Bodies188 The Achilles Tendon196 The History of Filip Verheyen Written by his Student and Confidant William van Horssen214 Letters to the Amputated Leg219 Travel Tales220 Three Hundred Kilometres221 30000 Guilders229 The Tsar s Collection232 Irkutsk Moscow233 Dark Matter234 Morality is Reality234 Flights266 What the Shrouded Runaway was Saying268 Josefina Soliman s Third Letter to Franz I272 Things not Made by Human Hands273 Purity of Blood274 Kunstkammer274 Mano di Constantino276 Mapping the Void277 Another Cook278 Whales or Drowning in Air280 Godzone314 Fear Not315 Day of the Dead317 Ruth317 Reception at Large Fancy Hotels318 Point319 Cross Section as Learning Method320 Chopin s Heart329 My Specimens329 Network State331 Swastikas331 Vendors of Names332 Death and Action333 Evidence334 Nine335 Attempts at Travel Stereometry336 Even336 wiebodzin338 Kunicki Earth367 Island Symmetries368 Air Sickness Bags369 The Earth s Nipples370 Pogo370 Wall370 Amphitheatre in Sleep372 Map of Greece374 Kairos402 I m Here403 On the Origin of Species404 Final Timetable407 The Polymer Preservation Process Step by Step408 Boarding
