Review Estoril ratni roman

Junak romana može biti i građevina„Estoril“ je čuveno letovalište kraj Lisabona koji je tokom Drugog svetskog rata zahvaljujući portugalskoj neutralnosti bio centar nekih od sudbinskih događaja po Evropu i svet ali i stecište najvažnijih poznatih i anonimnih aktera vekaNeposlušnost jednog portugalskog konzula spasla je smrti hiljade ljudi pred Hitlerovim nacizmom Tako je Lisabon kao tada najveći izbeglički logor za razliku od onih – koncentracionih privremeno udomio ljude svih nacionalnosti kako bi im obezbedio put za Ameriku Među. From A to Z around the World S is for Serbia I know the order is all over the place but I will get to start from A eventually I was looking forward to this novel I was attracted to it immediately after I read the synopsis and was sure I would love it I enjoyed it but not as much as I wanted The novel is set in Portugal during the WWII For the ones who did not know such as me Portugal was neutral in the Great War which led to a numerous influx of refugees of all sorts In this novel we will get to see glimpses from the life of Hotel Palacio Estoril s visitors Its hallways were inhabited by the rich and famous who had to escape their countries spies of different orientation diplomats famous artists All these characters are connected through the personality of the hotel and a little Jewish boy who waits for his family and befriends or at least converse with most of the fleeing characters I enjoyed that we get to meet real historical personalities such as the Polish pianist Jan Paderewski Ian Fleming French writer and flyer Antoine de St Exupery Two of the characters interested me directly as they were the ex king of Romania Carol II and his mistress Elena Lupescu Although he is not a personality too much loved in our country it was interesting to read about him It was emotional to be reminded of the Romanian crown which was made from the iron of a cannon captured in battle The crown is well printed in our recent memory as our last king Mihai the son of Carol II recently died and the whole country mourned and many of us were on the streets to guide him on his last journey The crown accompanied the king and the funeral procession The novel is structured as a series of mingled stories of different colorful historical figures and invented characters about the reason of their exile their hopes for the future their role in the war and the everyday life on the Portuguese Riviera The tone is light hearted many times entertaining but in the same time it does not allow us to forget about the horrors of the War Many thanks to Netgalley and Head of Zeus for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

Estoril ratni roman

Njima su se našli špijuni svih zaraćenih strana avanturisti diplomate vagabundi bivši kraljevi sirotani i bogataši – Estoril ratni eBook #214 sve do porodica Rotšild i HabzburgGlavni jugoslovenskisrpski lik je dvostruki tajni agent koji bi se mogao ovako predstaviti „Zovem se Popov Duško Popov“ Asocijacija na Džejmsa Bonda je ispravna – to je istorijska ličnost čovek po kojem je Jan Fleming stvorio lik o Džejmsu Bondu Reč je o nemačko britanskom dvostrukom agentu koji je imao jednu od najvažnijih uloga u događajima pred japans. I was very keen to read this novel as the coastline between Lisbon and Sintra is my favourite place for holidays where the abandoned or ruined villas around Estoril seem so out of keeping with a thriving resort and which form a testimony to the novel s setting This era of Portuguese history has fascinated me ever since reading Night Train to Lisbon although the version of the period portrayed here is light hearted and whimsical recalling the style of Wes Anderson s The Grand Budapest Hotel The motley collection of guests at the hotel some real some imagined provide an intriguing cast of characters to illustrate the divisions of society at the outbreak of the Second World War where asylum seekers of all kinds and countries flocked to escape the Nazi threatThanks to the publisher for ARC via NetGalley
