Good literature Hercules Barefoot must ave been eavily inspired by Patrick S skind s Perfume but unlike the latter this book leaves me with a little rather than a little less faith in mankind Well the writing was a bit too expressionistic "For Me A Bit Crumbled "me a bit crumbled overlapping Still the premise was rather good The year is 1813 and on a stormy night two babies are born to two prostitues in a brothel The one is a perfectly formed girl and the other is a deformed boy whose mother dies immediatly after e comes into this worldThe boy is deaf mute ABC has no arms ears or noseis tongue is split like a snake s Odd Man In heas a Palace Intrigue (A Medieval Tale hunchback that is full ofair and is only around one metr Wow I really wanted to like this book it seemed that it would be intersting and it almost was It Parking Lot Rules 75 Other Ideas for Raising Amazing Children had the elements of a short story and it dragged because it was made into a novel The characters wereollow accept for the Hero Barefoot but even then The story telling was disjointed and confusing I often Carlyle Marney had to double back in a chapter to see if I skipped a major event that was being discussed or I needed explanaiton that was skipped over The non seuesntial stroy telling can be done well this was not I don t know why Iave even ranked this book with two stars except to say that there is some exceptionally beautiful sections in this book the words and the way they are written is stunning The book starts very well the first two chapters I was eager to see where this was going but when I got there I realized that I just didn t care Maybe I am just an idiot but this was

review Den vidunderliga kärlekens istoriaI read this book on the original language Swedish and it really is one of the best books in Swedish literature for a very long time It takes you through adventures both amazing and orrible and feelings of joy and despise The reason it doesn t get five stars is that on occasion it gets somewhat pretentious but overall it is a great piece It really is a shame about the title I just know ow a title
LIKE THIS PUTS ME OFF READINGthis puts me off reading book and I would never ave read it unless two colleagues of mine recommended it Therefore please ignore the "title and enjoy the great adventures of ercule "and enjoy the great adventures of Hercule will not regret it Actual Rating 35 starsI really liked this book I thought it was great and it is a Swedish novel I would certainly recommend to everyoneThe story follows our protagonist Hercule Barfuss He is born a dwarf with a severely deformed body He is deaf and cannot speak However e Biz Talk-2 has been given the gift of being able to read other people s thoughts An incredibly moving and at timesorrendous story which follows Hercule s life over about 80 yearsWhat really makes this book stand out at least to me is the extensive imagery The language is so full of pictures and metafors similes and symbols and while that at many times really added to the story it sometimes became a little too much We as readers could loose ourself in the images and nearly miss what Vallgren wanted to say With that said the imagery is one of this book s great strengths The intricacies of the writing style and the use different techniues definitely makes this book suitable for re reading in the futureFurther the book discusses a range of interesting topics religion language emotion love Ricky Ricottas Mighty Robot vs the Stupid Stinkbugs from Saturn (Ricky Ricotta, hate and so much However one of the reasons to why I did not rate this bookigher than 35 is partly due to the epilogue As the last part it is the feeling from that episode you bring with you after finishing the novel Unfortunately I found the epilogue to be incredibly dry and in general just unnecessary It left me feeling bored and just kind of meh With that said as a whole I think this book is really great With a very strong imagery and interesting writing style Vallgren manages to really capture the reader s attention and tell a story about longing love A Historical Atlas of Tibet hate and the cruelty of theuman kind Although the characters are uite one dimensional and despite that the The Last Awakening (Curse of the Phoenix, heroine is a damsel in distress dressed like an angel in white and despite a few turns of the story that feel illogical and therefore disturb the flow of the story I really enjoyed the book Despite that the love Hercule feels for Henriette is manic and obsessive the book manages to say something important about love andate and Italian Warships Of World War II human nature It s a brave book in the sense that it allows love to prevail overate and sorrow while it aims for igher literary grounds in a time when undying love and appy endings are banned from. Horrific Sufferings of the Mind Reading Monster Hercules Barefoot is the picaresue fable of the love that grows between the mute telepathic Critical Social Theory and the End of Work human monstrosity Hercules and the beautiful Henriette a love that will entwine their fates forever Author Carl Johan Vallgren creates an unforgettable
