  1. I thought that I would see if anyone out there in BGO-land has read this book. I was given an English translation by a friend a while ago and got around to reading it relatively recently. Sadly, he later asked me what I thought of it and in his words, I didn't like it. It is not often that I actually get to read, never mind finish, a book that I don't like but I just couldn't make up my mind. It has the feel of something slightly of Kafka but is written in that kind of style ( at least in translation I admit) that I would expect from a screen play from the 30s or 40s. It is clever no doubt and I am sure that something is lost in translation but to me it was just a bit too much '60s ( it was published in '66 in Greece and '69 in the UK). My Greek history is not good but I am sure that it has been fermented using live political cultures. So why is it I don't like it? I guess it's a mystery (no pun on the plot). Is there anyone out there who can either tell me that I am mistaken and that it is a good book or otherwise tell me that I am right and perhaps tell me why I am right?
