Definitely Maybe

Definitely Maybe

by Arkady Strugatsky

In its first-ever unexpurgated edition, a sci-fi landmark that's a comic and suspenseful tour-de-force, and puts distraction in a whole new light: It's not you, it's the universe!Boris and Arkady Strugatsky were the greatest science fiction writers of the Soviet era: their books were intellectually provocative and riotously funny, full of boldly imagined scenarios and veiledbut clearsocial criticism.

It tells the story of astrophysicist Dmitri Malianov, who has sent his wife and son off to her mothers house in Odessa so that he can work, free from distractions, on the project hes sure will win him the Nobel Prize.But hed have an easier time making progress if he wasnt being interrupted all the time: First, its the unexpected delivery of a crate of vodka and caviar.

natural?In this nail-bitingly suspenseful book, the Strugatsky brothers bravely and brilliantly question authority: an authority that starts with crates of vodka, but has lightning bolts in store for humans who refuse to be cowed.

What People Think about "Definitely Maybe"

I first read this book twenty-five years ago, but now ... it is a much better book. Think of a community of scientists and scholars in Leningrad, all on the point of making breakthroughs. The fragments in each case seem to indicate that a small excision, as from censorship, has occurred. Vecherovsky and Malianov, two of the scientists, resolve on different after their clear defeat before a "homeostatic universe" that resisted any significant change:He didn't say anything; he shrugged and filled his pipe.

Zira olmayan gerçeklii hayal etmek çok zor deildir ve hayal gücünüzün yardm ile sfrdan ina edersiniz. Hayat boyunca her alanda sanatsal ve sözel zekasn gelitirmi benim için çok zor oldu. Benim bu metinle ilgili en büyük skntm ise; zaten olayn ve anlatlann çok zor, karmak olduu bir kitapta neden isimler sadeletirilmemi. Stalker gibi bir filme kaynak olan bu yazarlarn dier eserlerini merak etmek çok normal ama benim çok sevmediim bir okuma tecrübesi oldu. Yoksa benim için 3 puan daha doru bir puanlamadr.

Okurken ise Fringevari bir tat aldm sürekli, nedense.

Bunu on dokuzuncu yüzylda bile biliyorlard -Vayngarten Her eyden önce, Kyamete Bir Milyar Yln alldk tarzda bir bilimkurgu olmadn söylemek mümkün. Bu yüzden, kolay hazmedilemeyen bir kitap olduunu söylemek pekala mümkün.

I have no idea why but best memories of my life are connected with abnormal heat, that's one of the reasons I loved the atmosphere of the book.

Hikayenin kendisi pek ilgi çekici deil bence ve çok yüzeysel anlatlm ama esas ilgi çekici olan kitabn yaymlanma hikayesi, sansür ve yasaklanma aamalar. Romann yazlmas srasnda destek veren yaynevi Aurora, roman tamamlandktan sonra romandaki eylemlerin kapitalist bir ülkeye (örnein ABD) yöneltilmesini talep ediyor. Hikayedeki gizli güçlerin yaratt belirsizlik, bilim adamlarndan birinin yürüttüü uzay çalmalarnn kim bilir neyi sembolize ediyor oluu ve homeopatik kainat, homeostatis gibi aibeli ifadelerle romanda devlet düzeninin gizlice eletiriliyor olma ihtimali sansür komitelerini rahatsz ediyor.

Ama okumak için zaman ayrmaya deer kesinlikle (belki).
