having done read it - Calvino snacked on my brain.

If on a Winter's Night a Traveler If on a Winter's Night a Traveler by Italo Calvino


My review


rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is a trip. If you can handle displacement, vagueness, wild supposition and fantasy - the kind of fantasy that takes place only within thought, not within a castle with dragons, silly - then you will truly enjoy this book.



Calvino lures you into his web and then snacks on your soul while you let him because it was your idea in the first place, right?



[semi-spoiler aside for those who've read this: my next book is Farenheit 451 which i'd picked before picking up this calvino... making the calvino more pertinent and potent, no?]
