Essay on “The Demons in Paradise”
I was waiting for this book. I waited until it comes out, until then reach to me. Then I read it. Read quickly Lipskerova slowly read simply impossible. And then six months trying to formulate their impressions of the text into something more or less digestible.
The trouble here is that the impression of the book is directly dependent on whether you read Lipskerova to it or not.
If you have not read, then “Demons in paradise” you are likely to enjoy. Solid social realism with a slight touch of mystique, cheesy humor and strongest plot, best characterized by the word “dashing”. Fascinating weaves the life paths of the characters just do not give off the text, forcing to the last turn and turn the pages, sacrificing sleep and food.
But if to “Demon …” you read in Lipskerova something earlier, such as “Autumn will never”, then this book you do not like. Absolutely. In it everything that was good in lipskerovskoy prose, became noticeably worse. Socialist Realism and Sots too too realism fotografichen to the field, almost vulgar. Mystical realism not quite mystical and not convincing. One gets the impression that a single daemon, acting in a novel, write there out of habit, so the reader is not confused, whom he still reads. Humor as something very much below the belt. There remains only the plot. Here Dmitry Mikhailovich did not blunder, probably due to the dramatic training. But not a single story alive reader.
As a result, the idea that the more diagonal billboard with a book, the lower the value of this book, “Demons in Paradise” categorically confirm. I’m unlikely to read the next book Lipskerova and the Reading is not recommended. Try your best to something early.
