when i felt 
I felt swamp of passive negativity pull me down until I was choking desperately Why did I finish itMaybe I ave a streak of masochism in me like the narrator of the novel Maybe I secretly identify with er loss of identity in a world where she can only exist as a foil for the men that can only exist as a foil for the men that it around er Maybe I am stubborn to the point of self destructive behaviour wanting to finish each task no matter Code Name Princess SEAL and Code Name how idiotic it seems at times That personality trait definitely gave me my PhD degree and made me choose my profession and become uite decent at project management but it al The name alone suffices to be in the world Malina is one of those novels that feels completely natural to me arising almost like an organism without pretense or premeditated designs Its easy playful voice keeps me reading despite the somber themes that run underneath It is a particularly difficult novel for me to describe as it tackles many serious topics war post war timeistory personal relationships men and women yet when you pull back its main thrust is elusive What is this book about Who even is Malina I Hitler's Army Soldiers Nazis and War in the Third Reich have no answers and in a way the answers don t really matter Yes I read the afterword with some pretty convincing angles And some of itas validityWhat matters to me is that it is enjoyable at every juncture And it feels so right just in my bones like I buy everything it says Just the whole damn thing seems so necessary and true like a lived thing It seems less a novel and a byproduct of someone s Yoshikawa Eiji Hito to sekai having been aliveOnce oneas survived something then survival itself interferes with understanding p146 It s disgusting to put all this misery on the market just adding to what s already there these books are all absolutely loathsome What kind of obsession is this anyway all this gloom everything s always sad and these books make it even worse in folio editions Malina is an incredibly complex tragedy on the nature of insanity and to read it especially in the beginning is uite a labour A woman believes that she is a writer and all uietThe Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking her men are fruits ofer sick consciousness or personages of er unwritten book or alter egos of er cracked mind And fragment after fragment Samantha An American Girl The American Girls CollectionBoxed Set her consciousness keeps deteriorating and but the end shatters everything once again so all thatas been Letters of Rennyo happening comes up in absolutely different light and changes the meaning of reality Malina is an anagram of animal and it isn t accidental but symbolic to the entire surrealistic and existential substance of the book Malina is a uniue and utterly fabulous novelaving many layers of narration and elucidation Dense fraught and at times stunningly beautiful prose A narrator in love with er own performance and at times too melodramatic for complete empathy A fascinating attempt to combine the world of the personal with the political and the conflicts of gender I only wish she ad been able to finish Neophytes of the Stone her planned cycle of novels I cannot say that I enjoyed it and doubt I will re read it but would notesitate to recommend it 1 Vienna crumbling between behind and beneath the lines2 delicate cruel funny sad beautiful strange eart tugging pushing pulling boxing kissing scratching3 Bachmann understands about the preverbal4 Fading into the wal.
