Read full description of the books Le dictateur et le hamac:Not full 4 stars, to be honest, more a 3.5 to my first Pennac's book
This was a really unexpected book, and endearing meta-novel.
I received it as a gift for my birthday back last May, but I did not read it until now because: a)I did not have time and b)when I had read the plot I immediately knew that I would have needed the right mood to read it. And so, now, here I am.
The first 50 pages or so were quite... strange. I really do not know any other way to describe it. The story of this agoraphobic dictator seems unreal, not only because its events are bizarre, but also because of the way they are described, in the dimension of the "perhaps": there is nothing that appears to be certain, everything seems to be still defined.
However, reading on, I started to appreciate the atmosphere of the novel, its indefiniteness, in particular thanks to the continuous transitions from the world of fantasy (the one with the story of the agoraphobic dictator) in the world of reality (the one from which the author is inspired, that is his own life). This journey inside the story of the dictator Pereira and its creation soon becomes an intimate journey inside Pennac himself, with Brazil as background, and the mechanisms that are set in motion in the moment of the creation of the novel.
As a reader, I always wonder what helps the author to create his new universe, and Pennac gives an answer to this, quickly underlining how real life and imagination can easily blend within each other. In fact, it becomes harder and harder to tell which elements are invented by the author and which ones really happened. The characters of the Double and Sofia are the perfect examples for this.
I recommend this book, even though it may need time to be fully caught in the rhythm and the sense of the narration.
