    2. "الوحوش غير موجودة. الأشباح والإنسان الذئب والساحرات جميعها خرافات لتخويف الأغبياء مثلك. ينبغي أن تخاف من العِبَاد لا من الوحوش."ما إن بدأت بقراءة هذه الرواية حتى شعرت بأن فيها شيئًا يشبه السحر يشدّني إليها بقوة. فعدت بذاكرتي إلى تلك الأيام التي كنت فيها بسنّ ميكيلّي أميتران [...]

    3. I'm not sure how to describe this book. Is it a shattering of innocence, a coming of age story, a mystery, a suspense novel or is it all of these? I was drawn into the story immediately by the short terse prose, the descriptions of the countryside and the dialogue and actions of the young children in the story. Ammaniti, has captured with accuracy the actions and thoughts of a child who is caught in an adult situation. As the reader you are viewing the events from the eyes of nine year old Miche [...]

    4. A real horror. Evil is committed in pursuit of the "good", the victims are innocent and young, their innocence lost in the most painful way possible, and the story ends without any expectation of redemption or happiness for anyone.And what a unique and brilliant narration! The author inhabits the mind of a nine-year-old boy and tells the story like a real nine-year-old. Reminded me of Esther Freud's "Hideous Kinky" but with really something extraordinary: it doesn't take Niccolo Ammaniti whole p [...]

    5. جميل هو عالمنا القاسي المخادعحينما ننظر إليه بعيون طفلربما هذا ما نحتاجه حقا كي لا نفقد الشغف بهذه الحياةسنجد حتما ما يستحق الحياة لأجلهكأنها حكاية متصلة برواية آخذك وأحملك بعيداهو نفس ذلك العالم الذي يرويه لنا آمانيتي في حكايتهالحياة من منظور طفل صغيربكل ما تحمله روحه من [...]

    6. A poignant coming of age story about the loss of innocence of a rural Italian boy. The tale is told with enough balance as to be emotionally and intellectually engaging without being overly sentimental.The style comes across as so effortless and the plot is so well handled, that one almost feels as if this could very well really have happened, which makes the chilling and ironic conclusion feel even more shocking and resonantd since truth is stranger than fiction, who knows, perhaps it did happe [...]

    7. Set during the heat wave in the summer of 1978, in rural Italy nine year old Michele and his friends pretty much have the countryside to themselves. The parents stay in and try to alleviate the heat in whatever ways they can. Michele is only concerned about today, like most children and does not yet think about the wider picture, world events or other things that have affected his town. His only concern is having to drag his little sister everywhere, his friend Salvatore and the unelected leader [...]

    8. Despite its title, I’m scared and so is Michele, the 9-year-old narrator of this suspenseful story. It’s fast paced and wild, and you can’t help but be pulled in immediately and with full heart and soul.Ammaniti knows how to create a grim story that has a loveable, heroic boy at its center. And he knows how to keep you sitting on the edge of your seat. The book is scary, but addictive. It reads like a nightmarish fairytale. There’s good versus evil all over the place. There’s one small [...]

    9. ذات يوم من أيام الصيف مر "أمانيتي" بسيارته على حقول القمح بين بازليكاتا وبوليا ولاحظ صعوبة العيش بالنسبة للأطفال في تلك الحقول فكانت الرواية في بداية الرواية تحضر الحقول الصفراء، الحقول الصفراء الشاسعة الممتدة، فيكرس الكاتب هذا اللون في مشاهد البداية، الشمس، السنابل، القم [...]

    10. Well, he may not be scared but call me utterly terrifed. I find it hard to believe the book could be better or even equal to the film which I've seen twice and I wasn't any less scared the second time.I must confess that I've done no more than flick through the book and check the odd scene here and there. Sorry, book, but the visual spectacle of the film simply outdoes in spades anything you can do in words. The first thing I wanted to do when I saw this film was give it to my father. It was a s [...]

    11. I read this book for my Italian class. Reading in another language, especially it being my first time reading a full-length novel in Italian in this case, was a really rewarding experience and it allowed me to experience one of my favorite activities in a completely different way. I read this with a pencil in hand and circled all of the words I didn't understand (there were quite a few). I hope to do this again in the near future, with Italian and other languages, because I really enjoyed the ch [...]

    12. Sizzling story of a childhood and the horrid events that changed the aspects of the growing up process in one boy's eyes!Great story telling

    13. This is one of the best thrillers I have read this year. This book is translated from the Italian version. The suspense in this book was not overpowering. It’s not one of those fast pace modern day thrillers. It opens in a small isolated Italian town where a 10 year old boy discovers a secret in an abandoned farmhouse. He struggles to keep it a secret and to make sense out of what he has discovered. The descriptions of the prairie and the region are so wonderful that I could actually imagine b [...]

    14. القراءة الأولي لـ نيكولو أمانيتي ولا أدري لماذا بدأت معك بهذه الرواية ، بعد أن كان مقرراً لي أن ابدا معك بروايتك الأشهر : أخذك وأحملك بعيداً في البداية جذبتني الرواية للغاية فحين تري الدنيا والأحداث وتفسر المواقف بعيون وعقل طفل في التاسعة من العمر تري الأمر حقا بعيون جديدة ب [...]

    15. Perfect for the learner, as this is written from a child's viewpoint which means the language is not too precious or over literary and you get to learn some of the earthy expletives (but not the truly disgusting ones) that barely figure in polite beginners' books. On top of that, it is extremely exciting, so tense that you are forced to push on to find out what happens. After the first couple of chapters I blithely ignored all that precious vocabulary that I didn't know and really ought to look [...]

    16. I'd been looking forward to reading this book for quite a while. Knowing it was about a young child who discovers a boy being kept hostage/prisoner in a hole and and what unfolds next was enough to significantly grab my attention.Reading it however was a completely different experience and a major disappointment. Set in Italy, the translation from Italian to English is extremely noticeable and often interrupts the natural flow of the descriptive sections of the novel. The setting and location fe [...]

    17. “Stop all this talk about monsters, Michele. Monsters don’t exist. It’s men you should be afraid of, not monsters.”This coming of age story is translated from the Italian by Jonathan Hunt. A bunch of kids are out riding their bikes in a tiny village in Southern Italy. On a dare one of them enters an abandoned farmhouse and stumbles upon something horrible. The protagonist of this story is a nine year old boy, and themes explored include the loss of childhood innocence, and the confusion [...]

    18. Svaki puta kada uzmem knjigu od Niccola Ammanitia u ruke, budem doslovno iznenađena nenadmašnom snagom njegovog pisanja. Ni jedna njegova knjiga me nije ostavila ravnodušnom, pa tako ni ova. Uvijek mi se sviđaju njegovi likovi koje on vješto opisuje . Od onih negativnih( kojih u ovoj knjizi ima podosta), pa do pozitivaca koji izgledaju kao da se ne mogu sasvim uklopiti u surovi svijet oko sebe.Mene osobno najviše pogađa zlostavljanje i otmica djece, a ovdje se upravo o tome i radi.U malen [...]

    19. حين أكون في مزاج سيء أهرب الى السحر الايطالي فأي شيء يأتي من هناك جميل وروحي تواقة اليه ، اخترت هذه الرواية عن سبق اصرار لمعرفتي بأسلوب الكاتب اللين الجذاب ليكون اللقاء الثاني الذي يجمعني به بعد رائعته آخذك وآحملك بعيدا يروقني جدا هذا النوع من الروايات أحب هذا المزيج من الاث [...]

    20. Ammaniti chooses a 9 year old boy as narrator and hero of his story of a ‘kidnapping gone wrong’ in a rural part of southern Italy in a hot summer of the late 1970s.We could do whatever we liked. No cars ever went by. There were no dangers. And the grown-ups stayed shut up indoors, like toads waiting for the heat to die down.Of great appeal is what goes on in the mind of a boy of that age. It is story of innocence lost, as he is just beginning to sort out right from wrong, and real fears fro [...]

    21. طفلان في نفس العمر، أحدهم مخطوف، أوحى لهُ خاطِفوه بأنه ميت و هو الآن مدفون، أو ربما هكذا فهم هو من تلقاء نفسه، المهم أنه هو على يقين تام بموته و موت كل من لهم صله به ، يردد كلاماً غريباً بصوره أليه ، تستشف منها أنه تم تلقينه بشكل جيد، درجة الانصياع لديه عاليه جداً؛ فلمجرد عصب عي [...]

    22. Nine-year-old Michele is the narrator. He lives in Southern Italy in a small settlement of four houses surrounded by farmland. He has a small circle of friends, his family is poor but he and his sister live in a loving home.Michele stumbles upon a boy of his own age who has been kidnapped. What follows is Michele coming to grips with a boy being kept in a hole. Somehow there is an apparent normality as the entire settlement seems to be involved. Written in the first person and narrated by a nine [...]

    24. Spaventoso. Non c'è altra parola per descrivere il romanzo di Niccolò Ammaniti. Io non ho paura afferma il titolo, ma non è vero. Il protagonista è impaurito e lo siamo anche noi.Il romanzo si svolge durante gli anni di piombo. Il narratore Michele è un bambino di nove anni che vive con la sua famiglia nel mezzogiorno d'Italia in un piccolo paese chiamato Acqua Traverse. Ma è un nome ironico perché c'è solo una cisterna e non ha piovuto per tutta l'estate. È l'estate più calda del seco [...]

    25. A small-town kidnapping tale, told from the POV of an ickle boy. What vexes me about narrators close to the child's perspective is that the narrator is usually a grown-up narrating their childhood from twenty or so years on. The same is true here: the grown-up Michele is narrating his childhood twenty-odd years later. My question: why would a grown-up write his story with such a close childhood POV unless he was a writer who had consciously taken that decision to sustain such a narrative positio [...]

    26. This book is a coming of age tale about a young boy who stumbles upon a dark secret with links to his family. I hate to give away too much because the book is short and the plot should be a surprise.It is well written with a beautiful sense of time, place and characterization. The main character of the story is a nine year old boy enjoying a sweltering summer with his friend's and younger sister who is torn by the things he learns. He makes choices that I thought were very realistically written [...]

    27. كيف من الممكن أن تتشابك خطط الآباء وقراراتهم بما يراهُ أطفالهم بأنه الأصح؟ ودون أن يُصاب في هذه الرحلة كلّا الطرفين بأيّ أذى غير مقصود!إنها رواية ممتع. وتحتاج إلى الدقة والتركيز في القراءة. فالكلام الممتلئ بين السطور، ليس سهل التلقي؛ بل يحتاج منك عونًا ليظهر أمام عينيك فتفهم [...]

    28. Ho rimandato forever la recensione di questo libro, colpevolmente ma non del tutto intenzionalmente (la stupida tastiera del mio pc ha smesso di funzionare e scrivere recensioni senza L né Z né maiuscole tende ad essere complesso), e quindi ora ovviamente la spinta iniziale si è esaurita. All'indomani della lettura avrei potuto scrivere un papiro credo più lungo del romanzo stesso per recensirlo, ormai è passato un mese, per cui mi contengo, ma le piacevolissime sensazioni provate durante l [...]

    29. Ik was eigenlijk niet zo in de mood voor dit boek. Misschien op een later moment nog eens lezen, dan is m'n beoordeling misschien hoger.

    30. Una novela brutal desarrollada en un entorno desolador y duro. Unos niños y el fin de la inocencia. El descubrimiento de que los monstruos existen y tienen forma humana.
