    2. För att vara rättvis mot boken har jag delat upp recensionen i två delar, det positiva och det negativa.Det positiva med den här boken:- titelnFantastisk så klart (innan man läst boken), det var framförallt den som övertalade mig att läsa boken- den korta historien i början om en koloni av döva En idyllisk bild av ett samhälle, intressant bild av dövhet- delar av beskrivningen av Vatikanens hemliga bibliotekFörmodligen mest eftersom delar av mig älskar en konspirationsteoriDet neg [...]

    3. Wow, I really wanted to like this book, it seemed that it would be intersting, and it almost was. It had the elements of a short story and it dragged because it was made into a novel. The characters were hollow accept for the "Hero" Barefoot, but even then The story telling was disjointed and confusing, I often had to double back in a chapter to see if I skipped a major event that was being discussed or I needed explanaiton that was skipped over. The non-sequesntial stroy telling can be done wel [...]

    4. I read this book on the original language (Swedish) and it really is one of the best books in Swedish literature for a very long time. It takes you through adventures both amazing and horrible and feelings of joy and despise. The reason it doesn't get five stars is that on occasion it gets somewhat pretentious but overall it is a great piece. It really is a shame about the title. I just know how a title like this puts me off reading the book and I would never have read it unless two colleagues o [...]

    5. Actual Rating: 3.5 starsI really liked this book. I thought it was great and it is a Swedish novel I would certainly recommend to everyone!The story follows our protagonist Hercule Barfuss. He is born a dwarf with a severely deformed body. He is deaf and cannot speak. However, he has been given the gift of being able to read other people's thoughts. An incredibly moving and at times horrendous story which follows Hercule's life over about 80 years.What really makes this book stand out, at least [...]

    6. This is a page turner, for sure. I couldn't really quit once I'd gotten a chapter or two into it. It reminded me of another carnivalesque "freak" novel, Geek Love. But I liked this one a lot better than Geek Love. Despite the fact that this novel sometimes seems to be "a series of unfortunate events" it has an underlying optimism and love for its characters that keep it from getting too bleak. And it does get bleak, yes indeedy do. Dickensian bleak without the Dickensian filter shielding us from [...]

    7. Ой, эта премилая скандинавская литература. Пролог рассказывает читателю о языке глухих, об универсальности языка чувств, о верности и преданности; потом следует удивительная история двух детей, родившихся в один день, таких разных, но истово преданных друг другу, а потом с [...]

    9. Etkileyici bir başlangıcı ve sonu olan bir romandı benim için. Ama ortalarındaki tekrardan hayli sıkıldım, hikayenin yönünü tahmin etmek de pek zor değildi. Sondaki sağır ve dilsizlerle ilgili verilen yaşamsal bilgiler kendi adıma romanın genelinden çok daha çarpıcıydı. Arka arkaya yaptığım çok iyi okumaların gazabına uğramış da olabilir.

    10. Läste 120 sidor, gav upp. Det enda jag tycker om är titeln och omslaget (Bonniers läsarfavoriter). Tycker inte om språket, fastnar inte för karaktärerna, historien är för långsam.

    13. Although the characters are quite one dimensional, and despite that the heroine is a damsel in distress dressed like an angel in white, and despite a few turns of the story that feel illogical and therefore disturb the flow of the story, I really enjoyed the book. Despite that the love Hercule feels for Henriette is manic and obsessive the book manages to say something important about love and hate and human nature. It's a brave book in the sense that it allows love to prevail over hate and sorr [...]

    14. orta çağ avrupası'nı veya rusyası'nı tarih kitaplarından değil de romanlardan okumak daha keyifli geliyor bana. işin içinde grotesk varlıklarla gerçeküstücülüğe göz kırpıyorsa tadından yenmiyor. bu kitap bir de üstüne görece yakın tarihe uzanıyor, vatikan'ın çürümüşlüğüne dokunuyor ve sağır-dilsiz dünyasının hiç bilmediğimiz önemli bilim insanlarının, sanatçılarının adını anıyor. bir de sonlara doğru kahramanın aşkının intikamını alacağ [...]

    15. Deeply layered, rich characters, dark and foreboding, yet full of hope. Incredibly researched. Imaginative, seductive, surprising, a dream of a book from which I did not want to awaken.

    16. This one was fairly grotesque and hard to handle in parts (the description of the protagonist gives me the serious willies, par example), but as you all may have started to learn about me, I like reading about grodie stuff in books. I thought the pacing was interesting (a.k.a. kinda bad) in that the author was very quick about moving the action from one major event to another, yet he tends to expound excessively on some of the more mundane details of the story. I liked the ending; I liked the da [...]

    17. Cuenta una historia interesante, curiosa y original. A pesar de ser un libro que no me ha enganchado, y en el que algunas partes se me han hecho un poco pesadas, la curiosidad por saber más me hacía continuar. Creo que le falta algo para terminar de ser un libro increible. Siento que no empaticé con los personajes y perdía interés en los saltos de la historia o al introducir a nuevos personajes porque rompía el ritmo.Aún asi me ha gustado (no mucho ni muchisimo pero ha estado bien), y cre [...]

    18. This was a pretty weird book. Not bad weird, but it was definitely not what I was expecting. Much like Life of Pi, it was extremely gory in parts, which seemed unnecessary but definitely added to the whole idea of the intensity of the main character's hatred. It reminded me a little of The Count of Monte Cristo's a book about revenge and forgiveness. It also reminded me of The Hunchback of Notre Dame (though I'm going off the Disney movie since I've never read the book). The main female characte [...]

    19. 19.yy Almanya'sında geçen bu hikaye, aşktan ziyade dönemin insanlarındaki yozlaşmaya,eşitsizlik ve adaletsizliğe, kutsal adledilen şeylere gösterilen saygısızlığa ve çıkarlar doğrultusunda nasıl kullanıldığına, alt sınıftaki insanların yaşadıklarına dikkat çekiyor. İnsanların en büyük sorunlarından biridir belki de, farklı olanı ötekileştirmek,yargılamak,kabul etmemek hatta kötü ilan etmek. Herkül'de bu saçma yaklaşımdan fazlasıyla payını alıyor. [...]

    20. This book takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of emotions. While the book captures the essence of Hercules' character it also leaves the reader with a sense of pessimistic optimism. Hercules, the mind reading monster, gets the only thing he wanted--love, from the only person he wanted it from--Henrietta. However, circumstances lead Hercules on a search for revenge. This book is truly heart-breaking. One finds oneself filled with self-disgust. It brings out the fact that humanity is so unsa [...]

    21. Bir Garip Aşk Öyküsü gizli saklı kalmış gün ışığına çıkmamış ama çok dokunaklı bir hikayenin anlatıldığı okunulası bir roman Dünyaya gelirken neredeyse her türlü insanı vasıftan yoksun olan sağır, dilsiz ve hatta ucube bir hilkat garibesinin aşkının peşinden koşmasını anlatıyor kitap. Sağırken bile herkesten çok duyabilmesini aynı zamanda. İsveç edebiyatıyla tanışmış oldum bu roman sayesinde, yazarın dilimize çevrilmiş tek kitabı buymuş, bir [...]

    22. This Swedish novel had the perfect elements and settings which could have made it an extraordinary book: a deformed mind-reading "hero", overwhelmed by love and hate, living his life in a bordello, a freak show, a Jesuit monastery, an asylum and many more. Although the storyline and its characters remained too shallow for me to fully appreciate, the book wasn't bad and was definitely fun to read.

    23. film gibi kitap! ötekileştirmek ve içselleştirmek karşıtlığı ekseninde 1800 ler Avrupası fonunda eğlenceli bilgi tazeleyici bir aşk ve intikam romanı

    24. Jag slutade läsa efter ett ganska långt tag, men jag tyckte boken blev alldeles för svammlig i min smak, säkert en bra bok men inte min typ

    25. Though tragic in the extreme, this was so well written, so extraordinary, & such a fascinating exploration of human behavior, I recommend it.

    26. Interesting historical story about a boy, born with sever physical defects but with psychic/telepathiuc abilities. Also some interesting perspectives on deafness and sign language. A love story, too.
