I had been wanting to read this book ever since I visited Morocco and wandered through the streets and market of Marrakesh. It's quite a short book and very atmospheric, but I didn't think it was particularly well written, given that Elias Canetti was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1981. ...
A vivid, eloquent and well-written account of a nomadic, rather privileged childhood, told by a narrator smug, snobbish and self-righteous to the point of nausea.
I did not enjoy this third part of the memoirs of Elias Canetti as much as the first two, but nonetheless a very well-written book. Too much reportage in this third, name-dropping the norm, but still the ending was well worth my time.
Another great segment in the trilogy. It was rewarding to read as Canetti matured. The next, and last book, should be a knockout as he becomes the writer he has worked so hard to be. This was a man who read everything he possibly could and his self-study was remarkable in its expansive ideal.
