    1. Well, the problem with new/young authors is always a second novel, specially if the first one was so good and such a huge bestseller (Usamljenost prostih brojeva, Dereta) We always expect that the second one will be as good, but that rarely happen actually I fell in love with his first novel after few pages And fought hard to find him publisher in Serbia And succeeded (and that is not easy with Italian books), and secured him a great translator And I was looking forward to his second novel He ch [...]


    2. A soldier will never cease being a soldier.A platoon of Italian soldiers is stationed at the Forward Operating Base, not far from Helmand Province, in Afghanistan. They suffer days and nights of boredom, loneliness and food poisoning. When violence does occur, it comes suddenly and with little warning. No one will leave the country untouched by what they've experienced.Giodano's story is fairly involving and I particularly enjoyed the first half of the book. For some reason, I have a strange fas [...]


    3. This tale of Italian soldiers on a remote base in the Afghan War worked some subtle magic on me. It felt like peering at an ant farm and seeing organized but apparently meaningless activity. Then we get to know some of the individual organisms, ordinary representatives of our human species. They try but largely fail to feel connected to their interrupted lives back home. The enemy is faceless, a source of periodic mortar strikes and perpetual risks of IEDs. Toxic boredom alternates with struggle [...]


    4. Paolo Giordano is one of my favorite authors. He’s written only three novels, and I found each to be beautifully written and introspective. In this novel, Giordano explores the impact of war on the basic military men. This novel’s war is in Afghanistan where Italian soldiers are ordered to provide a security bubble around an area that the American soldiers have “cleansed” of the Taliban. The reader follows the Third Platoon of the Sixty-sixth company of the seventh Alpine Regiment aka Ch [...]


    5. ”Sometimes he wonders where he’d be now, if what actually happened hadn’t happened there in the valley, if on a night like any other an Afghan driver, a man he didn’t know hadn’t decided to drive off in a diesel truck, if Angelo Torsu hadn’t been pitched out of a blown-up jeep, and Irene Sammartino hadn’t considered him responsible for that.  But they’re idle questions, and he quickly decides to put them to rest.”Senior officer Lieutenant Alessandro Egitto ponders these questi [...]


    6. I received my copy from the publisher's First To Read program.We were walking through Rome a few years ago, and came upon a protest camp. As we continued on our way we passed a group of men we guessed to be some element of authority, dressed in black uniforms that hinted at Special Forces or maybe some kind of SWAT team. They stood next to their vehicles, preening in clothes that were well fitted, down to the bulletproof vests. They were not in the least bit intimidating, and I could not help bu [...]


    7. 'Het menselijk lichaam' gaat over Italiaanse soldaten in de woestijn van Afghanistan. Het hoofdpersonage is een dokter, luitenant Egitto, met een hoop onverwerkte deuken in zijn zelfvertrouwen. Het verhaal speelt zich grotendeels af in Afghanistan, af en toe komen er flashbacks van Egitto's verleden aan bod.Langs de revue passeren de zware, maar voorspelbare onderwerpen die aan het leger worden gelinkt: de jeugdtrauma's van luitenant Egitto, het overspel met hoeren door Cederna, de conversatie's [...]


    8. Битката за човешкото тялоЦялото ревю тук: knijenpetar/2015/„Дори да ни върнеха този пейзаж от нашата младост, нямаше да знаем какво да правим с него.“Ерих Мария Ремарк, „На Западния фронт нищо ново“ Доста особена и разкрепостена книга е тази. Докато четях, си мислех за онези отдав [...]


    9. Corpul uman e, din partea mea, o metaforă strălucită. Războiul e despre corpuri, despre ce se vede; soldații se luptă cu arme reale și păstrează urme reale, palpabile. Dar asta vedem toți, în știrile de maximă audiență. Ceea ce nu se vede e umanul. Paolo Giordano face, deci, o radiografie superbă, deși groaznic de tristă, a umanității „jucăriilor” de luptă. Toate nimicurile pe care se ceartă soldații în avanpost, toate farsele prostești și supărările sunt pretext [...]


    10. For me it was worth it even just for the subtle clues for how our body relates to our minds. Modern soldiers were a perfect scene for such thoughts – there are rarely places in the Western societies where our animalistic roots and blind obedience are as welcome as rational thought.


    11. Jak někteří lidé v komentářích píší, Giordanova prvotinaOsamělost prvočíselbyla lepší. Protože ale mám jistou slabost pro knihy s válečnou tematikou, neumím Tělo nějak rozumně ohodnotit/zkritizovat a pokud vás příběhy současných vojáků taky zajímají, tak s chutí do toho. (Pokud byste chtěli o pobytu vojáků v Afghánistánu něco autobiografického, doporučuju od českého autora knihuDo temnoty .)


    12. The Human Body is not a war novel. It neither glorifies nor disparages the Afghanistan conflict. Rather, it is a novel about people – people who just so happen to be in Afghanistan trained as soldiers and prepared to combat insurgents. It is about their lives before, during, and after their tour of duty. It is about the ways they combat the boredom, the danger, and the scars left by what they face. Mostly, it is about the ongoing battle of being human and surviving not just a war zone but also [...]


    13. Right before the prologue, Paolo Giordano provides a helpful list of characters from the seventh alpine regiment and the third platoon. He needn’t have taken the trouble. The characters in The Human Body are so intricately rendered that each of them is impossible to forget.There’s medical officer Egirto who has willfully exchanged the war zone at home for the war zone overseas. Marshal and troup leader Antonio Rene, a male prostitute who has just learned that he is to become a father. Corpor [...]


    14. Praticamente siamo io e la madre di Paolo Giordano le uniche persone in questo mondo a cui piacciono i suoi libri.Come al solito ho letto una buona parte di recensioni negative ma, sapendo che La Solitudine dei Numeri Primi mi era piaciuto, non mi sono lasciata scoraggiare. Sarà che nei suoi libri c'è gente abbastanza depressa, alla costante ricerca di qualcosa e che non sa ancora qual è il suo posto nel mondo, ma io mi ci ritrovo.Stavolta siamo in Afghanistan, alla prima missione del plotone [...]


    15. Oh, Paolo Giordano. After the fabulous Solitude of prime numbers, I had my hopes up. I thought I would read another thoughtful, poignant novel. Judging from the blurb, I thought I was in for a read that will explore loss, pain, suffering - the devastation that war wreaks on the spirit of its participants, leaving the body as the sole survivor in the aftermath.Now forget the paragraph above. My anticipations have been based, unfortunately, in my overactive imagination. I see that the author put w [...]


    16. "De eenzaamheid van de priemgetallen". Zo heette het eerste boek van Paolo Giordano en kenners en media waren waanzinnig enthousiast. Ik niet. Ik vond het een oppervlakkig boek en meen mij te herinneren dat ik het 2 sterren gaf of zo.Nu heeft Giordano een nieuw boek uit en ik wou het een kans geven. "Het menselijk lichaam" zou nog beter zijn dan 's mans debuut, zo beloofden websites, blogs en kranten. Ha, misschien zou ik deze dan toch weten te smaken, dacht ik.Niets bleek minder waar. Het mense [...]


    17. I picked up Giordano's other book Solitude of Prime Numbers based on the strength of the title. I picked up The Human Body based on the strength of its predecessor. And it didn't disappoint. The Human Body is actually about human spirit, there is something profound in searching for meaning and beauty within the context of something as inherently ugly as a war. I don't normally read war stories, particularly not the modern wars, war is the sort of thing best viewed and explored in retrospect with [...]


    18. Novels about war, and particularly those closely following the lives of soldiers in that war, have always appealed to me. Perhaps to make some sense out of chaos? Who knows? It’s not for this review to determine. Like Matterhorn, written by Karl Marlantes, The Human Body strives to give readers a glimpse of war on a personal level and it also remarks upon the differences between those in command and the rank and file. For the most part he succeeds. We are given insight into certain characters [...]


    19. Giordano opět o osamělosti a "takových těch věcech" A zcela jinak než poprvé; tentokrát (tak trochu a spíše zpočátku) ve stylu Mendesova Mariňáka. Každopádně pokud platí ono okřídlené "že kvalitního spisovatele dělá až druhá kniha", tak je tedy definitivně stvrzeno to, co bylo stejně zcela očividné již po prvotině. A sice, že Giordano je jedním z největších talentů současné (nejen) evropské moderní prózy.


    20. Quando leggi questo libro trovi scritto quello che ti aspetti succeda veramente in una missione di pace in Afghanistan.Ti sembra di essere lì, soffri con quei soldati, oppure li disprezzi a seconda di quello che ti viene raccontato in quel momento.E' scritto bene; è profondo ed è una conferma della consistenza di Giordano.



    21. "Պարզ թվերի միայնությունը" վեպի հաջողությունից հետո սա Պաոլո Զիորդանոյի երկրորդ գիրքն է, որով անշուշտ պետք է ապացուցեր, որ ի վիճակի է գրել ոչ միայն սիրավեպ, այլև իսկական, ծանր վեպ: Դրա համար ընտրել է պատերազմական թեման: Վեպը իտալացի զինվորիների ծառայության մասին է Աֆղանստան [...]


    22. Ho trovato questa un'opera più matura rispetto al romanzo d'esordio. Giordano si è cimentato su una tematica già magistralmente affrontata dalla Fallaci nel suo 'Inshallah', ma lo fa in maniera fresca, originale, senza voler strafare e proprio per questo il racconto è godibile e coinvolgente. Lo consiglio anche a chi non conosce ancora l'autore.


    23. Leggere le parole di Paolo Giordano è come assistere ad un operazione chirurgica perfetta. Come con un bisturi incide i pensieri, le caratteristiche, le aspirazioni, le paure e le vite dei soldati di questo libro. È una storia straziante in senso figurato. Lo strazio non riguarda la morte, o per lo meno non solo quella, ma lo strazio riguarda la vita e le aspettative della vita. Sopratutto di chi sceglie di servire l’esercito. Perché questo libro insegna che prestare servizio militare signi [...]


    24. ,,Tačiau senasis skausmas nesislepia už naujojo. Šis pasilipa ant senojo pečių ir iš ten žiūri į tolį."


    25. Succede che verso la metà di ottobre del 2012 Mondadori fa uscire il secondo libro di Paolo Giordano, quello che aveva vinto il premio Strega qualche anno fa.Bene, che problema c’è? dico io. Nessuno, mi rispondo. Solamente un altro titolo nelle librerie e un’altra copertina di uno scrittore legato ad una grande casa editrice e che dunque troverò esposta in bella vista nelle vetrine di tutte le librerie, almeno per un mese o forse anche qualcosa di più.Una possibilità in più, da conside [...]


    26. Superb War Novel that Happens to be ItalianAlthough set in Afghanistan in the past decade or so, this magnificent war novel has the distinct advantage of being Italian, dealing with Italian troops serving with NATO. So one can read it without dragging in the political and patriotic factors that affect Americans reading of their own military. But on another level, being Italian makes no difference, for men (and one woman) at war are much the same, regardless of uniform and nationality; this is a [...]


    27. 4.5Cuando pasé cazando por las estanterías de la biblioteca universitaria, me encontré este libro y no dude en llevármelo a casa. La razón es simple: en 2011 leí su primera novela, La soledad de los húmeros primos, y si bien no conecté del todo con sus personajes, me dí cuenta que este autor tiene un talento que hay que tener en cuenta. Y con esta segunda experiencia que tengo con él, confirmo que este autor hay que tenerlo en cuenta.La compañía Charlie se compone de un grupo de sold [...]


    28. I am one of the few readers, it seems, who is not persuaded by The Human Body, either as to the boredom of men at war, nor as to war's tensions. It's as if Paolo Giordano, even with two tours as a reporter in Afghanistan, and plenty of observational material, could not enter the interior lives of his characters nearly as well as in his stunning The Solitude of Prime Numbers nor his quietly compelling Like Family.The Human Body comes with encomiums such as " a stunning exploration of war," "a gre [...]


    29. I was almost scared to read this book- after the power of The Solitude of Prime Numbers, the thought of a book by the same author about war in Afghanistan was almost overwhelming.In the end though, I felt like Giordano bit off more than he could chew with this book. Where Solitude was the story of two people, this was the story of 5 or more, and it jumped back and forth between perspectives and voices and in the end failed to win me over in spite of moments of brilliance and insight.I went from [...]
