I can't say that I hate this book because I absolutely loath it! the ideea of the book is ok - a young girl that becomes the victim of her mother's ambition....and ends up being a piano teacher instead of a great artist recognised world wide - but the way in which it is written, all the cheap wannabe erotic s**t.....horrible!! I finished it only out of CURIOSITY...I just wanted to figure out why in God's name was this woman ever proposed for the Nobel Prize....I haven't figured it out yet..
I'd be interested in reader's comments about their own experience of adulthood, and cultural apprenticeships (both wanting to 'learn' art, music, literature, and being forced to practicing), and also of growing up in Central Europe in the 1950s and 1960s as compared to today.
A strange novel, I didn't really like the plot although at some points I was captivated. But the author's style is something very different from what I've read so far, quite poetical, abstract and sometimes difficult to follow.
it's indeed a strange novel but that doesn't make it less interesting.....it's a novel where prejudice/appearance plays a great part and yet you should let your prejudice aside while reading it.....all in all it's worth reading it if you want to discover something that is somewhat new....good luck with your reading!
