A vent'anni, Karl Ove decide di trasferirsi a Bergen per seguire i corsi di una prestigiosa accademia di scrittura. Come studente più giovane mai ammesso, è eccitato e pieno di aspirazioni. Presto però si sente defraudato delle sue illusioni giovanili. A disagio in compagnia e senza speranza con le donne, si dà al bere e alla musica rock. Poi, pian piano, le cose prendono una piega più luminosa. Si innamora, lascia perdere lo scrivere e si concentra sulla più gratificante critica letteraria, e il principio di una vita adulta prende forma. Questo, fino a quando i suoi demoni, le sbronze e l'irresistibile esca della battaglia dello scrittore lo richiamano all'ordine. Nel quinto volume del ciclo de "La mia battaglia", Karl Ove Knausgård rivela la sua personale e spesso vergognosa lotta contro l'introversione, l'abuso di alcol, l'infedeltà e le ambizioni artistiche, e ci riporta tutto il dramma quotidiano dell'esistenza, in un romanzo in equilibrio tra il disperato desiderio di essere buono e il terribile potere della trasgressione.

Posted at Heradas Review “What was consciousness other than the surface of the soul’s ocean?” Book five details Karl Ove’s life from around age nineteen to thirty-three, but in a lot of ways it feels like the closing chapter of My Struggle. Of course there is still one more book coming in the pipelin Leggi tutto
You’ve heard about Karl Ove Knausgaard’s six-volume My Struggle series. If you've been avoiding the annual hype since 2012 but now for some weird reason think you're maybe KOK curious, these reviews of Books One , Two , Three , and Four will get you up to speed. OK. Now that you're all caught up: Book Leggi tutto
[from Min kamp 4] Looking at the other reviews here of volume 5, I see a good deal about the plot and some interesting notes on connections with Knausgård's real life. What's striking, given that the book is being sold as a novel, is how little people say about its qualities as a piece of literature. Leggi tutto
"...the silence of the living is quite different from the silence of the dead" - Karl Ove Knausgaard, My Struggle: Book 5 Book 5: Some Rain Must Fall First, just a quick observation. I'm a little perplexed by the photo on the cover of the Archipelago English edition. Isn't that Robert Smithson's Spira Leggi tutto
Really, really excellent, and in many ways closes the circle of narrative, resolving threads that K.O. was setting up as early as book 1 and covering a huge amount of temporal ground (ages 19-32, roughly). It most resembles book 4, in that it's relatively linear and contained by place instead of the Leggi tutto

Karl Ove Knausgaard - a painfully open book I had never heard of Knausgaard, a Norwegian author, best known for his 6-volume autobiography My Struggle . When it was recommended to me I was a little curious as to whether listening (I experienced this via audio format) to 21.5 hours about this guy w
Volume 5 of Knausgård's My Struggle takes place as he is attempting to become an adult while living for fourteen years in Bergen, Sweden. It is, as all the other books, fast-paced and chock-full of descriptive language and pitiless self-observation. It is an absolutely remarkable book. During this s Leggi tutto
Oh Knausgård, this is, in my opinion the best part in your "My Struggle" series. A very strong five stars to this one. How I loved it. I want to, as always, write that it doesn't matter in which order you read the books in this series. They are made to be read independently from each other, the books Leggi tutto
Νιώθω πως ξέρω τον Καρλ Ούβε καλύτερα κι από τους φίλους μου. Έχω περάσει όλες αυτές τις μέρες διαβάζοντας αυτή τη μυθιστορηματική αυτοβιογραφία του κι έφτασα αισίως στην τελευταία σελίδα του πέμπτου βιβλίου. Θα μου λείψει... Πώς είναι δυνατόν να μην έχει η ζωή μου καμία απολύτως σχέση με τη ζωή του Κ Leggi tutto
