Recenzie ,,Astept Raspuns”

Astept Raspuns

Se spune ca lucrurile mari vin in pachete mici. E cel mai bun mod de a descrie cartea de debut a Ralucai Sandu: “Astept Raspuns”, scrisa in perioada adolescentei (mai exact intre 16 si 18 ani). Scepticii ar putea critica indrazneala si curajul acestei noi, dar foarte promitatoare autoare. Cu siguranta, cititorul va fi surprins de usurinta cu care acest roman de dimensiuni mici il va prinde in vraja sa, vraja care va fi ridicata doar cu ultima fraza a povestii magice dintre cei doi tineri indragostiti. Paola di Bartolo este personajul principal, fiind defapt proiectia insasi a autoarei intr-o alta epoca, si anume Roma secolului XVII. Aceasta adolescent simpla se indragoseste de “un inger cu ochii verzi”, isi infrunta mama, asteapta cu rabdare intoarcerea logodnicului ei de pe front, se castoreste, este rapita, si in final, da nastere unei fetite, toate intr-un roman de numai 70 de pagini. Foarte multa actiune inglobata in aceasta poveste, bogata cu evenimente care pe alocuri sunt lapidare in descriere si necesitau poate o mai buna dezvoltare. Totusi, cartea lasa cititorul de multe ori cu sufletul la gura, oferindu-I putine momente de rasuflare. M-au impresionat in mod special rimele strecurate in locuri potrivite in paginile carti, dand o generala senzatie de piesa cantata la opera scrierii, ce il determina pe cititor sa fredoneze incet aceste rime alaturi de personaje. In sfarsit, reusita combinatia creata de Raluca Sandu cu un rezultat final impresionant pentru o carte de debut. Va sugerez sa stati cu ochii pe urmatoarele aparitii ale autoarei. Nu veti regreta!

Waiting for an answer

They say big things come in small packages. That is the best way to describe Raluca Sandu’s debut novel “Waiting for an answer”. Being written when she was only 16 through 18, one can judge the courage and dare of this fresh and very promising author. I can assure you, you will be pleasantly surprised by the easiness with which this novel grabs you in its magic only to let go in the last line. Paola di Bartolo, the main character, is the projected image of the author in another time period, XVII century Rome that is. This simple girl falls in love, confronts her parents (only the evil adoptive mother in the beginning, later on finding her real parents), patiently awaits for her the love of her life (while he is forcefully sent in the army), gets married, gets kidnapped and has a child, all in a 70 page book. Allot of action going on, at some point lacking in details unfortunately, and in need of more development, but still daring and exciting. I would call it a bedside table book, perfect to read before slipping into dreamland or, why not, a simple and fun summer read. I particularly enjoyed the abundance of rimes during the novel which gave the overall book a feel of a play or symphony, causing the reader to hum the songs alongside the characters. This mix enhances it, making the story more pleasurable to read and easier to fly through the pages. Enjoy the book and keep an eye on future releases by this author. You won’t regret it!

Ii multumesc pentru aceste cuvinte colegei mele Vasile Adelina, cu increderea ca este o viitoare specialista in critica literara. In prezent lucreaza la proiectul sau de critica a seriei Amurg de Stephany Mayer. Ii doresc si pe aceasta cale succes si sa auzim de ea cat mai des si cat mai repede 🙂
