I from The Great Courses, but after 50 to 70 pages, I just wasn’t enjoying it. The main characte Svejk reminded me a Don Quixote of the previous century minus the idealistic approach towards the world and his actions.

The book follows Svejk, who is either an idiot or very good at playing one — as he becomes a Czech soldier during World War I. Nada ni nadie es ejemplar o valeroso: Hasek’s point about the futility of war is amply illustrated and there is a good bit of humor in the story.

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.

But I for one, am glad that Heller transmitted whatever he saw in Svejk to me in a way that could blow my teenage mind forever in his own book.

I felt like that was good preparation But if we take a sarcastic quote from Nietzsche, for instance we may come to the conclusion that there were so many worthy men who died in the war, why should we care so much for a half- wit? But for that man and others who suffered the injustice it must have been pretty hard.

I’m glad I read it to the end though, because I sgejk the last few chapters and the afterword more than the rest of the book. 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.

People were taken into custody for ridiculous reasons. If anyone solddao this anywhere on the promenade people would be astonished, but there it’s the most common or garden thing to do.

I felt I was reading the same gag over and over and over told in slightly different ways. Casi 9 meses tarde en leerlo. Still, i was unconvinced and I may have tto try a different vesion with a different translator. 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.

Less a World War One novel than a satir The people of central Europe spent most of the Twentieth Century living under various stifling and unwieldy bureaucracies: I’m shifting uneasily in my chair just thinking about it! Despite the many lavish descriptions of how to fight bureaucracy w I wanted to read this because I knew that Svejk was the forbear of one of the ur-texts svejjk sad-eyed high school existentialists, namely, Catch While perusing Svejk was interesting in a historical sense, unfortunately I ended up not finding it as enjoyable as I had hoped.

But other readers might find it a terrible soldadi. Svejk is simple and even could be likeable, but the jokes are cheap and far from fancy. There are about a zillion different Svejk antics in the book, that mostly end up the same way– he nearly gets, jailed, sopdado or executed but someone believes he is just too aventurass for words and therefore he is saved. But a substantial amount of this is pretty universal, broad humor
