There is little development of plot or character. I enjoyed what I read, but aventurws loved it — the humor reminded me, more than anything else, of PG Wodehouse.
The author was an anarchist and the book was a seemingly incoherent mess which actually concealed a definite underlying structure. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. 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.
It was also frustrating not knowing where all the places mentioned are as it made difficult to follow his movements.
If anyone did this anywhere on the promenade people would be astonished, but there it’s the most common or garden thing to do. To view it, click here.
Svejk reminded me a Don Quixote of the previous century minus the idealistic approach towards the world and his actions.
While I understand Hasek’s influence on later Eastern European writers and this book is therefore mildly interesting from a historical perspective, this isn’t a book to be read for entertainment in the 21st century. I believe there is so much more better literature and, don’t get me wrong, I consider myself a person who is really amused by a good and sensible humour.
I have listened to an adapted version the other day and did not find it all that funny. 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.
Lists with This Book. The futility, even predestination, of life among the plebs results in endless drinking and plenty of shitting. Yes, I feel pity for him. While perusing Svejk was interesting in a historical sense, unfortunately I ended up not finding it as enjoyable as I had hoped. But then he does seem thick. Apparently an enigma – is he an idiot or cannily playing the part to survive? I from The Great Courses, but after 50 to 70 pages, I just wasn’t enjoying it.
Also like Catch, there are too many characters, and the absurdist tone starts out entertaining but grows tiresome. I’m glad I read it to the end though, because I enjoyed the last few chapters and the afterword more than the rest of the book. I’m shifting uneasily in my chair just thinking about it! The story has its strengths and with an ironic touch, the author is delving into politics and the mistakes and exaggerations of the time of the World War I.
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.
I am just being sarcastic, and 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.
It could be that the humour was too straightforward in Svejk. This is a shame because dep are fragments of a great novel here and there. I would have given up if the book didn’t satisfy a few reading challenges, including my AtW challenge Czech Republic. But for that man and others who suffered the injustice it must have been pretty hard. The people of central Europe spent most of the Twentieth Century living under various stifling and unwieldy bureaucracies: It’s not that it was bad, it was that it was so overly long and repetitive that the mild humour became overshadowed by the ‘oh here we go again’ as the anti hero launched into one of his innumerable tales about dog only knows what until my eyes glazed over, my brain melted out my ears and I thought of about 10 other books bbuen I could be reading right now instead of this.

In all, not quite the excellent avemturas for which it was recommended. I wanted to read it, because it was recommended by teachers on W. Hasek’s point about the futility of war is amply illustrated and there is a good bit of humor in the story.
For about the first pages or so.

But we know he’s already a veteran of previous war s. Quotes from Las aventuras del Refresh and try again.
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. Sometimes you know that this or that kind of person will definitely like it – not this case. He was a journalist, bohemian, and practical joker.
His vaenturas winded stories which drive the other characters to distraction are rarely funny and your sympathy is more often with whoever is listening.

But I for one, am glad that Heller transmitted whatever he saw in Svejk to me in a way sventuras could blow my teenage mind forever in his own book. The big difference here is that 1 there’s no shift from fast witty one-liners and to serious plot stuff at the end and 2 the fast witty one-liners are not fast or one-liners. I found this book quite a difficult read mostly because the main narrative is often interrupted by anecdotes told by Svejk.
By then it was beginning to pall and there was still pages to go. Nada ni nadie es ejemplar o valeroso:
