    One thought on “The Snail on the Slope”

    1. First of all I need to mention that this is not similar to better known Roadside Picnic in any sense This book is completely dissimilar and it shows a completely new side of masters of science fiction from the Soviet Union.There are two different and practically independent plot lines There is a mysterious forest somewhere One part of the book is spend on Pepper POV who is the guy working in the research institute right outside of the forest with another POV by Kandid who used to be an employee [...]

    7. Eh I don t know what to really say about this one.I get that it s trying to make an analogy of insane bureaucracy in soviet Russia, but I just don t find the story or writing that compelling.The two main characters, Pepper and Kandid, are on the two sides of this eternal struggle one in the insanely bureaucratic Forest Directorate which seems to have something to do with the nearby alien forest clearing, studying, destroying, keeping guard of, invading, all of the above and the other one of the [...]

    8. After finishing the book it becomes clear why authors considered this story their most perfect and accomplished on The story is literally pierced with allegories and referenced to the various topics those are Soviet Union and its bureaucracy, ecology, living against the nature, human will etc.I believe, and it is pity, that some of the ideas and references were omitted by me due to the lack of clarification and maybe lack of some life experience, the book after all was written in 1968 Despite th [...]

    9. This review will be a bit fun I wrote it for a Soviet Russia history class in August 1983 I m happy to say my writing has improved a great deal since then I transposed it to my laptop computer from the original manual typewritten pages There were a lot of errors in it, but I ve left it mostly uncorrected There are spoilers, so you may want to skip it Join me and step into my time machineThe Snail on the Slope is the best novel I have read in years, possibly ever I didn t come to that conclusion [...]

    11. This is a book about a forest an immense, unexplored, unconquered biome that an organization called the Directorate is attempting to penetrate, research, guard, and eradicate simultaneously The story alternates between the viewpoints of two characters Pepper, who is obsessed with entering the forest, and Kandid, who is trying to get out of it.The Directorate is a dystopian organization that gets darker and surreal as Pepper becomes and tangled in its bureaucracy, but never ceases to be absurd [...]

    12. So was this allegory for communism and idiotic bureaucracy Perhaps The first half reminds me of absurd drama I don t like absurd drama And even though the criticism is still on point in many countries doing paperwork for the sake of doing paperwork that doesn t make it a good story There are some interesting passages, but the stuff in between them is a slog to get through The whole premise of the book is sort of boring if you think about it One of the heroes wants to just leave the station and i [...]

    13. I have not read many books by the Strugatsky brothers, so it was a bit difficult for me to kickstart this one But once all disbelief was suspended, what I found was a clever, profound and interesting view on the world, on people and progress, on society and on different ways to interact with it It is, for me, a very actual book and a true jewel everyone needs to read Give it a shot, even though the first pages are a bit tough for you.

    14. I shelved this one as science fiction for no other reason than that I intend to do so with all books of the Strugatzky bros Only it reads like a Kafka Novel A bit lengthy too I must confess I was a little bit proud of having made it through the whole story many years ago fter finishing hence only 3 stars.

    15. za to, o, za to ste tedili papir gospodo iz kentaura gdje druga polovina ovog romana koji je slutio na dobro ljuta sam.

Probabil ca daca nu as fi citit alte carti scrise de bossii Strugatki, mi ar fi fost greu sa interpretez mesajul si stilul criptic din carte Recunosc ca datorez o parte din elucidarea misterului cartii si lui Liviu Radu, care face o excelenta analiza a tuturor operelor AB Strugatki in postfata de la finalul acestui roman.Romanul prezinta doua povesti paralele dar complementare Orasul institutul care studiaza padurea si padurea propriu zisa Cei doi protagonisti incearca fiecare, pe cont propriu p [...]

    18. Two main characters with weird names, Perets and Candid, are fascinated by the Forest The Forest is drawing them like a magnet, they are desperately trying to reach it and reveal it s secrets What makes their desire for change so strong Maybe their failed attempts to find common sense in people around them and willingness to see life from another angle.The plot partly reminds The Castle by Franz Kafka as well as K Perets faces bureaucracy and absurdity all around, which he attempts, without any [...]

    19. This is an awesome, deep, thoughtful, intellectual book I would recommend it to everyone, because it can answer dozens of questions, which we usually keep asking ourselves all life long.

Read at Fragments of a hologram dystopia.tumblrVote 7,5 The story is divided in two narrative threads, and both are connected to the Forest, a mysterious and alien place with strange creatures, even stranger plants and weird inhabitants.One follows the actions of Pepper, a linguist who asked the permission to work at the Directorate, the kafkian bureocratic organization who deals with the Forest Pepper would like to visit the Forest, but he s denied permission every time, and he feels that his [...]
