See raamat on k ige parem siis, kui sa teda parasjagu ei loe.
I once saw the words border state in a newspaper That was how they labeled the country from which I came It was a political term Very appropriate, by the way A border state is nonexistent There is something on one side and something on the other side of the border, but there is no border There is a highway, and a field of gratin with a farmhouse under tall, thirsty trees, but where is the border between them It s invisible And if you should happen to stand on the border, then you too are invisib [...]
Borders are not just a geopolitical matter they are also a part of human nature Our lonely anti hero found a way to cross the border from an Eastern European country to go seek better luck and fulfilled life in the West, but he kept the borders within himself and he was never able to abandon those Oh, there are countries in Eastern Europe where you could easily hear capital W in West when East talked about it and looked up to the West as an example of decent life secure from political whims or [...]

Pograni ni teritorij prvo je Onnepaluovo djelo, i ujedno najzaslu nije za njegov status najcijenjenijeg suvremenog estonskog knji evnika U pitanju je epistolarni roman sastavljen od nikad poslanih pisama koje neimenovani autor pi e Angelu, svom poznaniku prijatelju ljubavniku Ve u prvom pismu spominje se zlo in i ostatak romana nam malo po malo otkriva o kakvom je zlo inu rije i opisuje detalje koji su do njega doveli Ipak, ovdje nije rije o nikakvom kriminalisti kom romanu Spomenuti zlo in slu [...]
The fuck did I just read It wasn t bad, but it was so confusing Sometimes s he started to talk about things that didn t even make sense in that part of the story.And I wrote s he, because I don t know if it s a woman or a man, who writes these letters to this guy called Angelo First I thought it s a man with a friend called Franz But then I found out they were than friends and s he wanted to taste his semen So from then on, I imagined s he as a she But then a cleaning lady greets her with Monsi [...]
I recently finished reading Border State , and while I found it interesting enough to read it until the end, I have mixed feelings about it I have always been fascinated with Eastern Europe, and the premise of the book, which is the experience of an Eastern European gay man in Western Europe, sounded really good Border State is a series of letters the narrator, a gay translator from an unnamed Eastern European nation, wrote to Angelo However, does this narrator really exist Is Angelo a real or i [...]

Letto ai tempi del Liceo per via di un progetto Italia Estonia organizzato dalla mia scuola in collaborazione con la Fondazione Maria e Goffredo Bellonci sui nuovi Paesi membri dell UE Il ricordo che ne ho piuttosto vago, quel che certo che lo trovai irrimediabilmente orribile Sar pure colpa della traduzione estone tedesco italiano glielo concedo se lo stile scarso, ma la storia in s stessa davvero pessima Abbiamo gi abbastanza paccottiglia letteraria in Italia, che bisogno c di importarla anche [...]
Kohati oli tunne, et kirjanikul oli depressioon.
Flaptekst Een jonge, naamloze ik figuur, afkomstig uit Estland, onthult in korte brieven zijn opmerkelijke leven.
Certainly a thinker surreal, dreamlike I was swept away into the stories feeling like I was occupying the role of Angelo Nothing is explained There are no outcomes it just is and it is very good.
Ich hab das Buch 2mal gelesenzum ersten Mal 2007 w hrend meiner Zeit in Estland und dann nachdem ich Terezia Moras Alle Tage gelesen hatte, weil mich ihr Protagonist Abel Nema stellenweise an den Namenlosen aus Border State erinnerte.Der Ich Erz hler kommt aus einer l ndlichen estnischen Gegend in die europ ische Metropole Frankreich, lebt dort mit seinem franz sischen Geliebten und schreibt Briefe oder besser Bekenntnisse an einen imaginierten Mann namens Angelo Ziemlich intensiv beschreibt er [...]
This brief novel or is it a novella was my first introduction to Estonian literature, and I hope to find authors as interesting as Onnepalu.Border State is epistolary, written as a journal, with the narrator addressing Angelo, a male love interest whom we never meet but is constantly referenced It describes the narrator s life, mostly in Paris, with his wealthy lover, Franz, whom he eventually murders Descriptions of the Parisian days are frequently interrupted by digressions normally memories [...]
This book is a little bit confusing and sad if I could say Don t know the right word but somehow it s not that bad I liked some of the parts story.
This touching, somehow familiar, blurry stream of thoughts within the pages left me feeling very light and moved I can t believe how intimate thoughts I was allowed to follow, and how beautifully and accurately written they were Even the darkest themes were described in the true life flavors, which to me, at least, are melancholically beautiful, just as these frosty northern countries where some of the story took place I have my varying ideas of what could have actually happened, but at the same [...]
This short, poetically intense novel is composed of a collection of letters about the narrator s aimless roaming in Paris s streets, parks, museums, book shops and cafes But we soon question the reliability of the narrator and even the existence of Angelo, the recipient of the letters, as the writing fluctuates between fantasy and reality, hope and despair.The border state of the title is multidimensional the narrator comes from a border state his entire life in Paris is lived on the margin of s [...]

Con un inicio de lectura complicad,o poco a poco vas entrando en el mundo de su protagonista Sin ser un gran libro te llama la atenci n a medida que lo lees Gana con las paginas aunque no llega a explotar Resulta que fue uno de los primeros libros de la literatura moderna de estonia, significante que es uno de los libros mas traducidos de esa lengua, aunque el libro esta ubicado sobretodo en Par s, el pensamiento estonio siempre esta presente en cada una de las l neas del libro.
Surrealistic and dripping with alienation, ennui, the unreliable narrator portrays himself as a man cast adrift in a Europe newly opened to citizens formerly trapped behind the Iron Curtain Estonian author Onnepalu never identifies his country as his protagonist s homeland rather he inhabits a border state which renders him invisible in the new Europe Where does he belong and with whom and does he really exist at all in this limbo state where dreams and reality intersect.
In de eerste persoon geschreven, nogal uitzichtloze en gelaten brievenroman van een Baltische homofiel, die herinneringen ophaalt aan zijn jeugd en aan zijn ongelukkige liefde met Franz in Amsterdam en Parijs.Een wat futloos en somber boek dat wel een aantal mooie observaties bevat.
Ma ei tea, kuidas ma elasin k ik see aeg nnepalu lugemata.
This book was actually read for an Estonian culture history class I was taking at college.
See ei ole Paradiis Pani mind pisut Pariisi igatsema Eks Harjutused sinna takka v ib samamoodi m juda.
An enjoyable book The portrayal of post soviet Estonia and its contrast with western Europe was quite interesting.
Actualy don t remember much about this book but I know I have read it and It was ok I used it s idea in my final high school essay Estonia as a border country in european union.
