    One thought on “Кракатит”

    1. Cartea propriu-zisă e formată acum din trei bucăţi, la propriu. Am adormit de vreo 5 ori cu dansa-n mână. Pentru cine l-a mai citit pe Capek, începutul îi este caracteristic: aceeaşi aura ştiinţifică, personaje de asemenea natură şi abruptul firului epic. Pe de altă parte, romanul de faţă iese din tiparele autorului: personajul principal, Prokop, trece prin cinci planuri, primele patru constituindu-se şi bazându-se pe analiza personajului în diferite ipostaze. Al cincilea, de [...]

    2. Невероятен сборник с антиутопии, които отдавна са се превърнали в класика. Тук можете да прочетете "Ние" на Евгений Замятин, книга, която вдъхновява Оруел за "1984". Ако се питате къде е използвана думата "робот" за първи път, отговорът се крие в "Р.У.Р." на Чапек. "Фермата" на живот [...]

    3. Probably the weirdest book I've ever read. Found it at a thrift store and was intended to make a secret compartment for my liquor bottle in it, but decided to read it instead. The first twenty pages or so is like reading how "Scream" by Edward Munch feels like. And then it gets weirder and more confusing. Maybe it would be better if I read it a second time

    4. Dávám Krakatitu plný počet, přestože mě konec hodně zklamal. (Spoiler! Doslova deus ex machina.)Dost mě překvapily Čapkovy romantické scény, místy jsem měla pocit, že čtu spíš červenou knihovnu a to nás na to češtinářka kdysi na nižším gymplu upozorňovala

    5. Met veel plezier en bewondering heb ik zojuist "Krakatiet" uitgelezen, een vergeten klassieker uit 1924 van de geniale Karel Capek (1890-1938). Ik vond het geloof ik nog mooier dan "Oorlog met de salamanders", en het is typisch zo'n boek waardoor mijn leesjaar (2016) meteen al geslaagd is, zelfs als ik vanaf nu alleen maar de Donald Duck te lezen krijg.Het onnavolgbaar grillige en groteske verhaal wordt in beweging gezet door de maffe scheikundig ingenieur Prokop, die een alles verwoestende spri [...]

    6. In high school, they tell you how this book is about internal struggle and how the abuse of scientific advances can put the world peace at risk. Hogwash. I wonder whether my lit teacher has actually read this. This is a story of a delusional inventor, who has nothing better to do than to walk around, be an ass to everyone and feel like a martyr. Much like Holden or Botchan, but boring and making even less sense than two those morons. I seriously can't relate to a single character in this book an [...]

    7. I don't know how I feel about this book - it was very strange, and the character's dreams and hallucinations were more than the story itself. He acted like some kind of an animal, impulsively and primarily, and was always turned on (which was very funny, because he always felt dizzy and was going to faint, obviously his body can't deal with so much passion) - he fell in "love" more times for a few months than I did my whole life.

    8. This was my book of books when I was in the teens and could not imagine anything better then working in a chemical laboratory. The hero of the story, Prokop a chemical engineer, was most definitively my hero and Karel Čapek my favorite writer. The scene when Prokop wakes up from a meningitis delirium in the house of a Czech country doctor and addresses his daughter in Homeric Greek, as Nausicaa, by reciting to her a verse from The Odyssey, is still with me.

    9. This is story about human's internal struggle in its essence. Science advancement, pressure to get it for military purposes on one side and desire of the scientist - still being a human - for simple pleasures of life and finding woman to love.

    10. A story that will hug you at the beginning, smash your brains through each chapter and only the end will kindly release you with a big OU. Heavy loaded with philosophic thoughts, inner person battles and doubts, together with general fight between good and bad.

    11. Ve škole do nás lili rozumy, jako že se kniha věnuje otázce zneužití vědy ve prospěch válečných účelů, či co. Přitom je to celý jen o ženských

    12. Velice věrně popsaní lidé a jejich snaha ovládnout svět a jeden druhého navzájem. Ale Čapek byl optimista a takhle kniha nakonec končí s nadějí.

    13. La considero una muy buena novela. Čapek es un gran intelectual con la particularidad de ver el futuro, de alguna forma. La novela fue escrita en 1924, unos 20 años antes del desarrollo de la bomba atómica; y, si bien no sólo desarrolla un conflicto al rededor del impacto mundial de una sustancia con el poder de acabar con el mundo, logra entrever los conflictos que hemos tenido por el poder que genera la posesión de armamento nuclear actualmente y durante la Guerra Fría. Sin embargo, Čap [...]

    14. Krakatit se mi moc líbil, jedna z mála knih, kdy ať jí otevřu kdykoliv, tak na ní mám chuť. Od začátku do konce je to zajímavá změť Prokopových chemických monologů, snových úryvků a zajímavého komentáře světa po 1. světové válce. Kniha se čte prakticky sama, má supr energii - 4.5/5

    15. Verschenen in STAALKAART #32Krakatiet van Karel Čapek, een knaller van een klassieker- Laurent De MaertelaerStel u voor: u vindt kort na de Eerste Wereldoorlog een explosief uit dat duizenden keren krachtiger is dan dynamiet. U noemt uw uitvinding ‘krakatiet’, naar de vulkaan Krakatau die in 1883 explodeerde met een kracht van 4 kernbommen. U beseft het potentieel gevaar voor de mensheid en slaat op de vlucht om de formule uit handen te houden van lieden met slechte bedoelingen. Wel, dit al [...]

    16. H.G. Wells meets Franz Kafka. In 2012 won een vertaling van De Oolog met de Salamanders de Groene Watermanprijs, door mijn favoriete boekhandel jaarlijks uit te reiken aan “een pareltje dat over het over hoofd werd gezien in de mainstream boekenmedia”, en nu is er dus de vertaling van Krakatiet, het boek uit 1924 dat als het meesterwerk van Karel Capek beschouwd wordt. Deze intrigerende Tsjech schreef tijdens het interbellum visionaire werken met knotsgekken plots, maar ook met een fijn gevo [...]

    17. takuto experimentalnu haluz som veru necakal. v alegorickej rovine sa tam da nahmatat celkom zaujimava ideova koncepcia, ale to, co sa deje v tej prvej, je cisty naladovy bordel bez miery, a luskat sa cezen bolo pre mna miestami utrpenim. asi si to neudrzatelne roztekanie pribehu (a tym postupnu stratu pevnych bodov) uvedomoval i autor, a aj preto zvolil ten rozpravkovo-vykladovy zaver (nie, zeby to bol v pripade autora vynimocny jav, v tomto pripade som mal vsak silny pocit, ze slo o z nudze cn [...]

    18. Po přečtení mám bohužel dost ambivalentní pociti. Jakkoliv mi to přišlo, jako nepropracověnější (a nejdelší) dílo, které jsem od Čapka přečetl, tak mne zklamal konec. Takhle 3.5 hvězdičky, víc dát nemohu.(view spoiler)[Chápu, že to takhle asi skončit muselo, ale přeci jen zamrzelo, že se člověk nedozvěděl, jak to dopadne s Anči, co se stane s Princeznou a tak pdobně (hide spoiler)].

    19. I was fairly dissapointed by this book. All through was a tension, expectations, but in the end, no denouement. I had a feeling that autor wanted to finish it quickly, because he got to tangled with the story and all the characters.

    20. Proč nejsem komunistou:Pokuste se soudit svět bez brutálních generalizací; za chvilku vám nezůstane z vašich zásad ani šňupkaJeden z nejnemorálnějších darů lidského ducha je dar generalizace; místo aby shrnoval zkušenosti, hledí je prostě nahradit.

    21. klasické a silné čapkovské téma tentokrát autor rozmělnil zdlouhavými románky, které mu vůbec nesedí

    22. De emotionele zieleroerselen van de hoofdpersoon zijn nogal over the top, maar verder weer een aangenaam Capek-boek. Laten we de wereld maar niet willen verbeteren, en al helemaal niet met explosies.
