Again, one of the best stories I’ve ever read. Great story, bad writing or maybe bad translation? I was given this book to read through a GoodReads giveaway.
Quotes from Elijahova stolica. Richter is a writer who upon separating from his wife, moves back in with the aunt who raised him.
Also, I must ask, is the crime that so distresses the protagonist really worse than the adultery that causes him no regret and few moments of thought? Not exactly a feel good read as it is a war setting and follows a man discovering his messed up family lineage. I get the wish igoe be literary, but you also have to tell a story, and you can’t wait until the middle of a book to begin telling it.
While the story is interesting in its mystery and occasional plot twists, the narrative is sometimes slow and plodding, failing to achieve the suspense that it could have delivered. Alas, in my opinion the book did justice neither to the war nor our main protagonist’s story of mental and moral anguish. I am guessing in the original language it read better. Full of despair and unhappiness, but it was a worthwhile read.
Published by Arhipelag, Beograd first published It’s wonderfully atmospheric, with a fascinating story line that grows more complex with every chapter.
I liked the book’s call for humanity and civic engagement – and was fascinated by the portrayal of that war as harbinger of new nationalism, anti-democratic developments, anti-refugee sentiments, religious warfare, etc. Also, I would have liked to see more development of the actual city and war, as if the author could have ventured out more than he did into the depth of the struggle and given it equal footing to his own struggles.
Open Preview See a Problem? The Judgment of Richard Richter is one such gem.
The reason for the character’s despair became crystal clear and I could hardly put it down. Got this as a Kindle First release; was interested in it because it was set in Sarajevo duringand I was once good friends with some people from the former Yugoslavia.
Was worth the read. Unusual twists and lots of irony.

It is a work of true literary fiction, in the style of Dostoevsky and Joyce, with long descriptive sentences, which often contemplate on the ideas of fate, war, destiny, and identity. Jane OSullivan rated it it was ok Stolics 22, Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
Interesting, a bit weird, not too obvious but just enough to make me guess the “thing” before it was actually revealed.
The book is slow at times and very verbose, but I found myself still compelled by the story, the characters, and the city of Sarajevo itself. From the beginning you sensed the main character was going to take his life so it was no surprise.
