    1. un roman beton!mi-a fost târșe să scriu despre romanul ăsta, dar frate! deja a trecut o groază de timp și tre' să scriu, altfel o să uit de el total. am căutat ceva pe net, pe bloguri, dar cucu, nimeni n-a avut pân-acuși sânge-n barabule să scrie (excepția e aici, la valeriu gherghel) ce mi-a plăcut?1. e o carte plină de speranță, luminoasă - chiar dacă se petrece în evul mediu rusesc întunecat, de dinaintea lui ivan cel groaznic, unul plin de ciumă, de mizerie, dar și de [...]

    2. I hope this doesn't come across as meaningless hyperbole - this book is extraordinary and the translation is brilliant. There are some fine detailed reviews here already, notably those by Antonomasia (/review/show) and Paul Fulcher (/review/show), and I accidentally left my copy on a train just after finishing it, so I'll confine myself to a brief overview.This is the story of Arseny, a humble 15th century Russian who begins life as the orphaned grandson of a village healer. After his grandfathe [...]

    3. Un roman incredibil despre timp, despre vindecare și despre mântuire prin iubire, scris într-un sublim registru tarkovskian.După părerea mea, meritul cel mai important al acestei cărţi este că reuşeşte să se facă dezirabilă și digerabilă atât pentru evlavioşi cât şi pentru liber-cugetători, fiind lipsită de orice aroganță excesiv moralizatoare.Spun că este o carte despre timp, deoarece arată cum şi de ce anume nu există timp fizic, ci doar veşnicia. Pentru Creator nu [...]

    4. When I read Laurus in early 2013, I had no idea I’d ever translate the novel. I simply read the book, enjoying Eugene Vodolazkin’s mediaeval Russian setting and following the emotional and physical journeys of his main character, a man who seems to live four lives in one.The more I read, the more Laurus bewitched me, keeping me up at night with accounts of pestilence, apocalyptic thoughts, mediaeval winters and pilgrimage. It wasn’t just the plot that fascinated me though. Vodolazkin’s l [...]

    5. I loved this book when I read it last year and love it even more now that I'm translating it. Vodolazkin's medieval setting, humor, and mix of contemporary language and old language make for a fun and pretty indescribable book about a man who's a healer, holy fool, pilgrim, and monk.

    6. Rus GerçeküstücülüğüEugene Vodolazkin Rusya'da son yıllarda adını fazlasıyla duyuran başarılı bir yazar olduğunu uluslararası edebiyat dergilerinde okumuştum. Özellikle Vodolazkin'in Laurus başarısı ve Rusya'da çok prestijli olduğu ifade edilen 2 önemli ödül sahibi olması, uluslararası anlamda da eleştirmenlerce övülmesi bu kitaba karşı ilgimi üst seviyelere taşıdı.Vodolazkin, özellikle Ortaçağ Rusyası konusunda uzmanlaşmış bir tarihçi aslında. Bu ne [...]

    7. This is a surprising, deep and mystical novel; set largely in medieval Russia but branching out to different places and sometimes different times. We know that Arseny was born in 1440 and was brought up by his grandfather, Christofer. When his grandfather dies, Arseny becomes the local healer and, one day, brings into his humble home a young woman – Ustina. When she dies in childbirth, he begins a life travelling and trying to make atonement for her death.You will have to decide whether Arseny [...]

    8. “And then there is the fish with many legs. No matter what color stone it swims up to, it takes on that color: if it is white, it turns white, if it is green, it turns green. Some people, child, are the same: they are Christians with Christians and infidels with infidels.”Laurus is an unexpected conjunction of magic realism and hierography and the book is tragically poetical.“Ustina was not separate from his love for her. Ustina was love and love was Ustina. He carried it as if it were a c [...]

    9. A new Medieval Russian novel—well new for me and new considering seventy years of Communism has precluded this type of literature. When I first read about Laurus in a favorite book catalog I can’t begin to tell you how excited I was. Real literature has returned to Russia, and who knows how to write romantic (in the old sense of the word) travelogues like the Russians? C.S. Lewis would be thrilled. He might even bend his one-old-book-for-every-new-book rule in this case.Laurus is about one m [...]

    10. When I got to the end of Laurus I thought: "this is the best book I've ever read." I've had that feeling before with other novels and I hope I will have it again in the future but even so Laurus will remain one of the most perfect and memorable experiences of my reading life. It probably changed my experience to have read "The Confession of St. Patrick" before reading Laurus. Unlike Augustine's very Roman intellectualism, St. Patrick's confession describes a reality where the spiritual and the p [...]

    11. I was very surprised to realize that this book has been published only recently, because the writing is consistent with an end of the 18th century style, and not only in its mimetic qualities, but rather in its actual construction. The author chose a medieval character and a travel across Russia towards the Holy Land in order to talk about God and the belief in God. The writing is exquisite, an absolute pleasure to read, and the characters are very, very nicely developed.P.S.: Many thanks should [...]

    12. I loved it. Simple and brilliant, this novel is one of those you don't get to read every day. It's one huge metaphor of time and human life itself, but at the same time it's a chronicle of life of the particular human. And it breaks your heart and makes you smile at the same time. The language is easy and beautiful, and the trick of using Old Russian language mixed together with modern words gives an extraordinary effect, sometimes puzzling, sometimes comical. Strongly recommended.

    13. A book in a genre I've hardly read since my age hit double figures: stories of the saints. Laurus, the life of a fictional fifteenth-century Russian folk healer, holy fool, pilgrim and eventual monk is essentially an invented example; baptised Arseny, he adopts a number of names through the phases of his life, culminating in 'Laurus'. Miracles and prophetic visions are presented as a matter of course, as in the life of a saint, not the mode of fantasy or magic realism familiar to non-religious E [...]

    14. This book was not what I expected and my expectations of its quality were high. So when I began to travel along with the pilgrim, Arseny, I was initially left scratching my head at all the seemingly strange events that did not seem to be building toward anything. But then I read this quote from the author, Vodolazkin: "There are two ways to write about modernity: the first is by writing about the things we have; the second, by writing about those things we no longer have." "Laurus" is a book abo [...]

    15. Spicuiri din recenzia finala care se gaseste pe blogul meuAm cugetat la titlul romanului care spune din start că este un roman neistoric, Vodolazkin subliniind că a pus o sticlă de plastic într-o pădure din Evul Mediu pentru a sublinia faptul că Laur nu este un roman istoric. Da, Laur este un roman anistoric. La fel și Laur/Arseni/Ustin/Ambrozie. Plutesc deasupra timpului, sunt prezenți lângă tine, sunt prezentul rememorând trecutul și viitorul. Anistoric nu în sensul gândit și pr [...]

    16. This is an impressive read. In 15th Century Rus', Arseny becomes a healer, spiritualist and holy man. The book charts the four parts of his life - as an orphan living with his Grandfather who is also a healer and then lives with Ustina who dies in child birth, he then wanders and becomes a holy man, he journeys to Jerusalem, years later he returns to his birth place.Through this there is humour, naturopathy, old language, debates on time and when the world will end, prophecies, jumps to future e [...]

    17. IT’S HARD TO WRITE saintly characters. Alyosha in The Brothers Karamazov is the least interesting of the brothers. Everybody reads the Inferno, but how many make it to Paradise? Yet Eugene Vodolazkin, whose second novel, Laurus, won both Russia’s Big Book and Yasnaya Polyana prizes in 2013, succeeds gloriously, giving us not just goodliness but an actual saint — a fictional wonderworker in the 15th century. A scholar of medieval literature at St. Petersburg’s Pushkin House, the Institute [...]

    18. "There were, however, those who did not want to come to terms with death but also reflected on ways to overcome it, even in the case of a universal end. It was among these people that a rumour began to spread, saying Amvrosy possessed the elixir of immortality. That Amvrosy, when he was still Arseny, had allegedly brought that elixir from Jerusalem. Fearing that there would not be enough elixir for everyone when the time came, some people settled by the monastery walls and built themselves some [...]

    19. Методологический метаисторизм автора вполне пинчоновский (и заебали уже сравнивать с "Цветочным крестом" Колядиной, это пошло и поверхностно, а связи между ними никакой - та книжка тоже была хороша и тоже про условное русское средневековье, но написана совсем из другого и [...]

    20. Acest roman pur si simplu te marcheaza! Acum, ca l-am terminat, ma incearca o intensa fericire datorita faptului ca l-am citit! Una dintre cele mai subtile si frumoase carti pe care mi-a fost data s-o citesc! Multumesc, draga prietena, pentru recomandare!

    21. Прекрасная книга, и прекрасная не особой изобретательностью сюжета или мощностью его развития (нет там этого), а свободой и юмором игры с языком. Стиль здесь - не внешний фактор, а движущая сила, и это великолепно.

    22. What a trip! I loved this book but how to describe why. Well, first there is the gorgeous dust jacket - there are some books, like some wines, that just have to be bought because of cover/label. And when you start with a good impression, you have a positive frame of mind right from the start. The cover, besides being red, has the look of an icon to it. And that created the perfect mindset to start this book which is riddled with orthodoxy, i.e the Orthodox Church. And I do so love icons. I once [...]

    23. L.E. O carte pe care am ocolit-o ceva vreme, partial nu stiu de ce, partial dintr-un sentiment care imi spunea ca ar fi o carte trista. Pana duminica asta cand intrand intr-o librarie cu gandul de a cumpara ceva ca sa-mi trec timpul cateva ore, am ales-o intr-o fractiune de secunda fara sa-mi fie clar de ce (depasea oricum cu mult suma pe care aveam de gand s-o dau pe o carte in ziua respectiva).Dupa asta, aproape ca n-am mai lasat-o din mana, am citit-o acasa, in parc, la serviciu si, ceea ce e [...]

    24. An unusual and interesting, but finally unsuccessful book, I think.Laurus has been compared by at least one critic to The Name of the Rose and by another to (of all things) Canterbury Tales, but it seems to have nothing in common with these beyond the fact that it too is set in the Middle Ages. As a fictional portrait of a medieval saint, Laurus might be better compared with Frederick Buechner’s Godric. As a work of fiction written by a medievalist (and hence with a whiff of authenticity to it [...]

    25. 3.5"There is vanity in excess penance. You must have sustenance -Sr Monica Joan-Call the MidwifeI am afraid Arseny found the vanity of repentance. I am not Orthodox but since I have friends who are I am hesitant to be too critical lest I hurt their feelings. Did I enjoy reading this? Yes. I liked the style and the flow. I enjoyed reading about someone's life even though fictional and I liked Arseny-Laurus. I especially liked the idea that his name changed over and over again because he was diffe [...]

    26. Extras din recenzia care se găsește aici: mihaelaburuiana/cartisicalParcursul lui Laur îmbină realul cu fantasticul, sacrul cu profanul, puterea cu slăbiciunea, dar peste toate domnește dragostea. Drumul lui inițiatic se desfășoară pe fundalul unei Rusii primitive, marcate de numeroasele superstiții și credințe populare din Evul Mediu, de necunoașterea unor reguli elementare de igienă și de un respect amestecat cu teamă față de vraci și de nebunii întru Hristos care rostesc [...]

    27. Unlike any book I've ever read. Reviewers compare it to Eco's The Name of the Rose or Gabriel Garcia Marquez's magical realism. Yes, those comparisons are valid. Laurus flits around the timeline in an unpredictable way — zooming from the late medieval cemetery to a helicopter planting a huge cross atop a church; the cumulative effect is a very magical, porous narrative that connects myth with reality with rumor with sainthood.The protagonist — the heartbroken Arseny — has that most rare of [...]

    28. lapunkt/2015/01/26/atemCa și Ludmila Ulițkaia, Evheni Vodolazkin este un scriitor rus contemporan care m-a surprins într-un mod mai mult decât plăcut. Romanul acestuia publicat în urmă cu doi ani în Rusia – Laur – recent tradus (extrem de expresiv, cu atât mai mult cu cât nu puține vor fi fost dificultățile) în limba română de Adriana Liciu pentru Humanitas Fiction, este o poveste stranie și frumoasă ce va contraria poate cititorii pasionați de proza contemporană. Chiar [...]

    29. This novel harked back to pre-Soviet fiction plus a large dollop of Russian Orthodox spirituality. In 15th century Russia, Christofer, the grandfather of a young man, Arseny, teaches him the secrets of herbal healing. Also, Arseny learns the power of undying love from a young woman, Ustina, who arrives at his hut one day. After her death in childbirth and that of their son, out of self-blame for their deaths, he becomes a wanderer and fool-for-Christ. He becomes clairvoyant, with eccentric behav [...]

    30. Ambientato nella Russia del XV secolo, tra izbe e fitti boschi e monasteri ortodossi, narra la vita intera di un medico dotato di particolari poteri taumaturgici che diverrà poi, per colpa e per amore, asceta, "pazzo di Dio", guaritore di vastissima fama, pellegrino, monaco.Lo stile è particolare, per me inconsueto: mi ha ricordato quello delle fiabe russe ma anche delle Sacre Scritture, essenziale e lento e martellante, intriso di misticismo e di prodigi, di delicata visionarietà.Una prosa c [...]
