How Do We Looke - Mary Beard

When the more recent Civilization was shown on PBS, they edited it a bit from the British version because we can’t have nice things in America since we elected an orange.  But they edited out much Mary Beard which is so not right.

 

                Really not right.

 

                So if you are wondering why Mary Beard wrote a book that functions as a companion to the series that’s why.  The book is  a look at how the viewer interacts with art.  She focuses on ancient and religious art.  There are some cool bits about the ancient world, and her comments about the statues of pharaohs are worthy of thought.   

 

                It is worth well quick read.

Dear Zoe - Philip Beard

Mi aspettavo... di più. L'idea fin da subito mi era sembrata eccellente e intrigante, perfetta per creare il giusto mood, la giusta introspezione, per raccontarci una storia forte e commovente focalizzandoci sui sentimenti e le emozioni di chi rimane in vita, di chi si sente colpevole per una morte così ingiusta, crudele e senza senso. Un'occasione perfetta che è stata alle solite rovinata. La scelta della narrazione era inusuale e perfetta, la storia con la sua idea di base perfetta ma la resa lascia a desiderare. Mi sarei aspettata di empatizzare fin da subito con la protagonista, sentire il suo dolore e sofferenza invece niente... la vicenda va avanti a singhiozzo raccontandoci dettagli della vita della giovane di cui a nessuno può fregare qualcosa esempio il primo ciclo mestruale e i traumi a esso connessi che... con tutto l'affetto... cavolo ci frega?! Per metà libro ci si riduce ai discorsi tipici di una adolescente che si lamenta del mondo e della famiglia gettando di tanto in tanto al lettore qualche frase fatta e riflessione scontata e triste del tipo "il mondo è brutto e cattivo, la terapia è inutile, la mia sorellina è morta a nessuno frega niente, la vita è brutta e orribile e tutti siamo destinati a morire male come gli Stark!!" Ok... diciamo che le citazioni sono migliori e anche carine, che ti rimangono in testa esempio

"Credo che il motivo per cui gli adulti pensavo che una terapia regolare funzioni è perché, mentre la fanno, il tempo passa. Non stanno meglio perché ne parlano. Stanno meglio perché il tempo trascorre e loro imparano a vivere le loro vite perché devono farlo. Dobbiamo farlo" 

Oppure 

"La mamma, David e io ci sentivamo come incollati insieme finché non ci fu Em. Lei condivideva il sangue di tutti noi e ci rese una vera famiglia. Lei chiuse una specie di cerchio e quando arrivasti tu, ti ci ponesti proprio nel mezzo. Adesso è diverso. Adesso sembra che noi siamo semplicemente il cerchio senza niente in mezzo." 

Belle citazioni ma nulla di più. Le leggi, te le segni e stop... non c'è un vero coinvolgimento emotivo, una riflessione profonda, sono belle citazioni messe lì a caso per riempire il vuoto e ricordarti che la ragazza è traumatizzata dal mondo e si sente in colpa e stop. Di fatto Zoe è quasi invisibile nel romanzo e viene citata solo per dare un minimo di senso e struttura alla storia e ricordarci il trauma di Tess ed è questo che rovina a mio avviso il libro. Come YA sarebbe anche carino, la ragazza con un trauma che incontra un bravo ragazzo, si innamora e grazie all'amore riesce a perdonare se stessa per quello che è successo alla sorellina. Peccato che il libro ti viene presentato come elaborazione del lutto, con al centro Zoe, con Zoe come protagonista, ti aspetti quindi dettagli su Zoe, sul suo passato, racconti di momenti speciali tra le sorelle, ti aspetti di conoscere ogni singolo dettaglio della sua vita invece a malapena a fine romanzo scopri come è morta ed è questo che mi ha demoralizzata... come YA funziona, la storia d'amore un po' tragica e strappalacrime funziona tutto il resto no... il fatto che per l'ennesima volta un buon libro sia stato presentato male illudendo il lettore è triste ed è il motivo per cui non merita 5 stelline... mi sento di consigliarlo solo a chi cerca uno YA un po' diverso rispetto al solito e a cui non importa troppo scoprire i mille retroscena su Zoe e sulla sua breve vita, in tal caso potrete emozionarvi e anche provare affetto per la coppietta in caso contrario girare al largo per evitare la cocente delusione.
