    1. Gárgaras con alquitrán trascurre entre la postguerra (WWII) y la rebelión checoslovaca de 1969, conocida como la Primavera de Praga. Quien narra los hechos es Illja, un niño alojado en un hogar para huérfanos llamado Hogar, y le permite contar los hechos en forma aparentemente caótica (como lo vería un niño), sin tener en cuenta el contexto histórico, y sin tener posturas a favor de ninguno de las partes. Este lenguaje infantil está dotado de un vocabulario de arrabal, por lo cual la t [...]

    2. Actually 4.5 stars.I really like this one: very well written (a very good Hebrew translation to this very complicated use of language), puts you in a unique atmosphere so to speak, an interesting story with added symbolic depth to it.The first third of the book (with all the upheavals of life in the strange establishment) was dazzling – very smart writing, an interesting protagonist with a distinct voice. The rest wasn't boring as well and very well written, only at some point it became a bit [...]

    4. Jáchym Topol. Adiós a la inocencia y otras historias checasPor dónde nos habíamos quedado… En 1997 muere Bohumil Hrabal. En 2000, Milan Kundera publica su última novela hasta la fecha, es decir, La ignorancia. Sigue vivo, quizás esperando el Premio Nobel de Literatura. Jaroslav Seifert murió hace veintisiete años. Treinta y tres su amigo, Vladimir Holan. Václav Havel cumplió irónicamente con su destino y nos abandonó a todos hace un par de años. Podríamos seguir en una triste let [...]

    5. very sprawling, messy, chaotic account of war and trauma. found my mind wandering quite a lot but there were some parts that very affecting and/or powerful. i liked that the title image kept returning more and more towards the end of the book. it had strangely fantastical elements, it was difficult to tell if it was real or fantasy or invented memory.

    6. Jsem tak trochu v rozpacích z toho, co jsem to vlastně právě, respektive minulou noc, dočetl. Podobně nejistý jsem si byl naposled u Murakamiho Kafky na pobřeží, jenže tehdy šlo o něco úplně jiného - nebyl jsem si jistý, jestli se mi podařilo vstřebat z knihy všechno (jakože teď už vím, že zcela určitě ne a že si ji budu muset jednou přečíst znovu). Kdežto Kloktat dehet ve mně vyvolává otázku, s jakým záměrem Topol svůj příběh vlastně psal. A nevím."K [...]

    7. Dziecko. Jak widzi świat? Mniej więcej wiemy. Przecież sami byliśmy dziećmi. Ale jak postrzega wojnę? Tutaj już obraz jest nieco inny, choć nie pozbawiony "niewinnych" spostrzeżeń. Topol postanowił opisać przygody chłopca o przezwisku Ilja. Mieszkał on w domu, który dzisiaj nazwalibyśmy poprawczym, albo przynajmniej sierocińcem o niskich standardach. Młody bohater zostaje brutalnie wepchnięty w sam środek konfliktu czesko-sowieckiego. Niewinność odchodzi w zapomnienie, czas [...]

    8. Dans la campagne tchèque, un orphelinat tenu par des bonnes sœurs (qui passent au goudron la bouche des petits menteurs) tombe aux mains d’éducateurs musclés, formés à l’école de la « Grande guerre patriotique » et des camps soviétiques. Les garçons, dont le jeune héros, Ilia, recevront une éducation paramilitaire sommaire, avant d’être confrontés à l’invasion du pays par les troupes du Pacte de Varsovie. Alors que la population organise la résistance, Ilia est enrôlé [...]

    9. Interesting in places. I guess the pseudo-mystical aspects of the book, mixed in with some of the portrayals of psychological trauma, are harder to understand in translation (and also more in the Czech literary tradition of writers like Kundera that makes it more difficult for readers from other cultures to understand as well or deeply as Czechs). I do think the whole tramping about of the Soviet forces in the Sirem area depicted in the book went on for an unbearably long time. There was so much [...]

    10. Libro difícil de notar. Me aburrió mucho desde el comienzo hasta los tres cuartos. Lo terminé simplemente porque era corto, y menos mal me forcé. Hacia el final tiene un aumento de ritmo que le da otro aire al libro y es muy interesante leerlo. Este libro narra la trágica historia checa desde el punto de vista de un niño durante la ocupación Soviética. Interesante pero siempre será difícil escribir un buen libro desde el punto de vista de un niño-adolescente

    11. I found this book at a local used bookstore and broke a rule and bought it because the cover looked interesting. I was glued at the beginning and the very end but aside from that I wasn't impressed. I agree with another reviewer that the Soviet maneuverings around Sírem went on far too long. I enjoyed it overall but probably wouldn't recommend it.

    13. Het boek 'spoelen met teerzeep' schetst het beeld van een jongen zonder toevluchtsoord in de totale chaos van oorlog en geweld en de desondanks schitterende tragiek die daaruit voortvloeit.Topol is subliem.

    15. Parts of this I liked but much of it left me cold. It is an interesting exploration of tumult in Czechoslovakia when the Russians invaded in 68, but I did not warm to any of the characters at all.

    17. Lecture intéressante du fait de l'époque à laquelle se déroule l'action, mais à part ça, je n'ai pas trop aimé ce livre.
