    PDF/EPUB La pell freda review La pell freda I loved this book It was creepy and unflinchingly bizarre It is a fun compulsive and at times genuinely scary read but also a great exploration of xenophobia the fear of the unknown as well as what makes us human I think the author very much deserves his comparisons to Lovecraft although I think it is one of those stories that you will enjoy most if you know very little about it so I will leave it at that and w

read Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Albert Sánchez Piñol La pell freda review  3 Albert Sánchez Piñol ✓ 3 free download Sur un îlot perdu de l'Atlantiue sud deux hommes barricadés dans un phare repoussent les assauts de créatures à la peau froide Ils sont frères par la seule force de la mitraille tant l'extravagante culture humaniste de l'un le dispute au pragmatisme. We are never very far from those we hate For this very reason we shall never be truly close to those we love With those words Catalan author Albert Sanchez Pi ol begins his tale of a young man who takes a position as a weather official on a remote island out of the normal shipping lanes along the coast of Antarctica He is the unnamed narrator of this tale and has opted for this position to exile himself from the rest of the world needing some time and space to negotiate between the devastating failures that came before and utter darkness that is on its way Upon landing he is startled to find that there is no sign of the previous weather official who is to return to the world on the very same ship Not only is he absent from his cabin but the inside of his uarters is in complete disarray with additional signs of abandon and neglect Hoping to find the missing man accompanied by the captain the narrator walks to the only other structure there the lighthouse There they find a man Gruner in charge of keeping the signal going who refuses to answer any uestions Refusing the captain s offer of leaving the island the narrator returns to his cabin and begins to put his new life in order Things are fine that first day but when the night comes the narrator finds himself under attack from something not human a group of beings who call the island home Barricading himself within the cabin he fights back with what little he has Mercifully the nights are very short and when the daylight arrives he realizes that his survival will depend on getting to the lighthouse and securing the cooperation of Gruner as well This will be easier said than done as Gruner has his owns reasons for remaining isolated The rest of the novel details their survival not only against these odd creatures but also against each other and themselves individuallyThis is a very vague synopsis but to say would be to ruin it for anyone who might want to read this novel If you carefully consider Nietzsche s statement about he who fights with monsters you ve got the very essence of the novel It seems at first to read as a sci fi or speculative fiction novel and reminded me a great deal of the work of HP Lovecraft but it can also and should be read as an allegorical reflection on our fear and distrust of anything we perceive as Other It s also an examination of the human capacity for brutality as well as a look at the perils of self imposed isolation that can change an ordinary human being into the worst sort of monster The ending although purposefully vague shores up the idea that life is or less cyclical and leaves it to the reader to contemplate whether or not there is any hope for the futureIf ever there was a case for don t judge a book by its first few pages Cold Skin is it I was scarcely into it when the first Antarctic nightfall came the attacks began and I thought well I m done with this one as I m not really big on books with monsters unless they re the Lovecraftian sort that live tucked away on the fringes of other dimensions threatening to make their presence known when the conditions are right But I reread the back cover noticed that the book had won some kind of literary award and figured that they don t give out literary awards for simple monster stories so there must be something I m missing And there was Once I was determined to get back to the book I couldn t put it down While I won t call the writing brilliant and this may be a translation issue who knows it was good enough to keep me reading all the time wondering what was going to happen nextRecommended with caution while on one level it s a horror story but not just because of the creatures who inhabit the sea so people interested in Cold Skin for its sci fihorror aspects might be a bit disappointed in its philosophical bent People who read mainly literary fiction might be turned off due to its focus on said creatures but will probably get the most out of the novel one further note A movie project is in the works and if the filmmakers don t screw up the adaptation it could be a good one

An alternately brilliant and frustrating novel COLD SKIN reads like a fever dream Pi ol has lots to say about war colonialism the cyclical nature of history and man s inhumanity to man and woman in this allegory of a mostly deserted island being attacked nightly by strangely humanoid sea creatures I enjoyed the novel very much but I found myself stymied at times by two important elements First the prose is often too spare for its own good which may or may not be a translation issue Pi ol is an excellent writer freuently utilizing delightful or deeply profound turns of phrase However there are also times when I felt the thinness of the prose left certain important themes actions and motivations less deeply explored than I would have liked The second is that our protagonist a nameless first person narrator is no better than the antagonist the madman Gruner with whom he is trapped on the island It left me with little to root for other than the sea creatures themselves which may have been Pi ol s point I felt this way until the novel s absolutely perfect ending which to my surprise relies on this very moral disconnect to work so perfectly In the end COLD SKIN is one of those novels that stays with you and keeps you thinking about it for days afterward It s extremely well written despite the spareness of the prose and worthy of its praise from authors like David Mitchell and Yann Martel Highly recommended to anyone interested
