Las aventuras del buen soldado Švejk

But a substantial soldaxo of this is pretty universal, broad humor The latter’s dream, where he and an army of shattered soldier’s corpses go to Heaven is truly moving and the book’s funniest moments come from them and their relationships. His long winded stories which drive the other characters to distraction are rarely funny and your sympathy is more often with whoever is listening.

I from The Great Courses, but after 50 to 70 pages, I just wasn’t enjoying it. Casi 9 meses tarde en leerlo. Acknowledging that humour can be difficult to translate, this book still drags on and on and on. I’m not sure if this book could be recommended to any specific type of person. Thanks for telling us about the problem. People were taken into custody for ridiculous reasons.

This is a shame because there are fragments of a great novel here and there. He was a journalist, bohemian, and practical joker. The big difference here is that 1 there’s no shift from avenuras witty one-liners and to serious plot stuff at the end and 2 the fast witty one-liners avsnturas not fast or one-liners. I enjoyed what I read, but never I had recently done some reading around WW1 topics, so when I saw this on the shelves I thought it would be a good time to get around to this.

Hasek’s point about the futility of war is amply illustrated and there is a good bit of humor in the story. I thought I was going to love it, obviously. A lesson in dead horse beating.

Unless you’re looking for primary source documents from the end of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, I’d recommend reading a middle chapter or so for the flavor, then finding pas better to spend your time on.

But then he does seem thick. Refresh and try again. For about the first pages or so. The people of central Europe spent most of the Twentieth Century living under various stifling and unwieldy bureaucracies: View all 4 comments. In spite of it all though, some of the situational comedy did come through. To view it, click here.

When svrjk comical does occur, it’s generally of the pratfall variety, and over too quickly to be entertaining, followed by another 50 pages of pointless explication. While perusing Svejk was interesting in a historical sense, unfortunately I ended up not finding it as enjoyable as I had hoped.

But other readers might find it a terrible slog.

The main character could not hook me by his traits or lack of thereof. I feel it has way too many lapses and potential points of boredome to be a reliably liked by anyone as a recommended book. The book follows Svejk, who is either an idiot or very good at playing one — as he becomes a Czech soldier during World War I.

There are about a zillion different Svejk antics in the book, that mostly end up the same way– he nearly gets, jailed, committed or exe It was hard to pick a rating for Jaroslav Hasek’s novel “The Good Soldier Svejk.

The beginning – attractive and active, but pages into the book I was lost and angry. Joseph Heller said he could never have written his surreal epic without having read this WWI picaresque by Hasek.

Rel could be that the humour was too straightforward in Svejk. By then it was beginning to pall and there was still pages to go. Lists with This Book.


I would have given aventutas if the book didn’t satisfy a few reading challenges, including my AtW challenge Czech Republic. I wanted to read this because I knew that Svejk was the forbear of one of the ur-texts of sad-eyed high school existentialists, namely, Catch I hate to have to say it but I’m glad he died before finishing this aventudas or I don’t know if I would have been able to cope.

If only he had died sooner.

The same goes for Svejk, who is the innocent, if foolish victim of abuses and unlucky turns of events. It just came to me, a joke with him that I heard: To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. I am just being sarcastic, svej, obviously there are many occasions when Svejk comes out all right and more intelligent than the dumb officers who are supposed to lead armies, but do not know what their ordinance is doing.

But we know he’s already a veteran of previous war s. afenturas

Svejk was really dim 2. Was gamely going along with this until the why is it inevitable? Still, i was unconvinced and I may have tto try a different vesion with a different translator.

The seemingly brainless Svejk who was called up to ‘do his duty’ in WWI spent all of his time winding up the more pompous of his fellow men usually officers and bureaucrats and the occasional woman too. However, I liked his storytelling skills and could find Svejk a good communicator and nice guy to talk about headlines of our current days may be until I got asleep. And, by the way, I could not manage to read a whole Don Quixote as well.
