The Last Day of Paradise Apr 2, 2007
I absolutely enjoyed reading this book! Once I had started, I couldn't put it down. I loved the humorous, witty and sometimes sarcastic language which Kiki Denis uses to portray the lives of an older generation of Greeks. I often found myself laughing aloud at the hillarious descriptions of certain characters' daily routines ( see Mr Calliga's scatological experience). I believe Kiki Denis is a very talented writer and I highly recommend her book.
Great writting! Oct 26, 2006
A captivating book that celebrates life with all its joy and conflicts written with sharp, honest humor that has no mercy for petty behavior and social conventions. It will make you laugh all the way, touch your heart when you least expect it and keep you turning the pages looking for more!
Paradise Oct 24, 2006
Kiki Deni's book is a solid literary work for scholars of the Mediterranean pride-, honor-, shame-, blood-, kinship-, and gender- notions. It locates the "unbearable lightness of being" in soft touches and promises; heavy consciences and losses. The writer's Edenic wanderings are diachronic: it is only at the end we realize that the last day is, indeed, the first day of paradise.
not bad for the first book Oct 23, 2006
The language is over-simplified and repetitive. No sophisticated and/or between-line images. It gave me a general disappointment about current generation's interests and world outlook. Not bad for the first book though...
A very good book! Oct 19, 2006
Apart from the rough language and the funny situations dispersed in the plot that make the book an easy and entertaining read, the philosophy and the writer's thoughts are underlined making it also a great literature.
