    1. Finished About a bridge, a beautiful bridge Through this bridge one finds hope But the book is also about the passage of time and the folly of man and the peoples and cultures of the Balkans One percieves the smallness of man There are no clear answers Is it foolish to hope for a better future, and what is better How does one judge progress If there is kindness isn t life good People are weak and mean and foolish, but at the same time they are kind and good and hard working Both are true, and bo [...]



    2. Images and myths purport to the mythic Ivo Andric crafted a monument to those expectations in his novel of stories He challenges the eternal with a construct, much as engineers spanned the natural with bridges Once present, the innovations often appear eternal, timeless It is a sincere hope that The Bridge on the Drina enjoys that privilege.It remains unclear whether I have finished this novel before Scenes like the impalement and the flood were rooted firmly in my memory The instances and intru [...]

    4. Between the fear that something would happen and the hope that still it wouldn t, there is much space than one thinks On that narrow, hard, bare and dark space a lot of us spend our lives Ivo Andri Published in 1945 but written earlier, probably during the war years when Nobel Prize winner Andri had given up his diplomatic work and was living as quietly as anyone could in Belgrade during those years of upheaval, The Bridge Over the Drina is the rather unusually told history of the town of Vi eg [...]



    5. Beautiful stories centered around one bridge, following the society and individual fates throughout centuries It made me feel nostalgic and melancholic like most Bosnian authors make me feel It reminded me of writings of Me a Selimovi , who is one of my favorite authors I admire Ivo Andri ability to shape and describe characters, they felt so alive and so deeply tragic Some of the stories were too heart breaking for me to handle, and I have to admit that the description of torture and execution [...]







    6. Stunning, sweeping and awesome fiction book that gives the history of the Balkans through the lens of the life of a bridge from the 16th century to the World War II by the Nobel Prize winning author Ivo Andric A must read for anyone who wants to understand the complexity of Balkan conflict A tragic story, but very touching and beautifully written.


    7. About five years ago, an American friend of mine, whose book taste I completely respected, told me about this book He was so enthusiastic I knew someday I would read it, even though I had never heard of the author, never heard of the book, and knew nothing about Bosnia I never suspected then, that I would eventually be living in Istanbul someday, be familiar with Ottoman history up close, and have walked a historic Mimar Sinan stone bridge with my very own feet What a book What an author And wha [...]

    9. A partire dal 1500 fino alle soglie della Prima Guerra Mondiale, il romanzo ci accompagna lungo quattrocento anni di storia, e sebbene il teatro delle vicende sia una piccola cittadina della Bosnia Visegrad , il racconto ha una dimensione universale.Con il suo stile sobrio, senza fronzoli, ma dal respiro epico, Andric narra l intrecciarsi di destini, commerci, religioni, culture, ed evoca i racconti e le leggende connessi con l origine e la costruzione del ponte, nei quali si mescolano e si intr [...]

    14. A remarkable book with a grand sweep of almost 500 years from the building of the bridge over the Drina in the 1560s to the First World War There are human stories throughout interwoven with the political upheavals with various factions gaining and losing ascendancy In the town Turks, Serbs and Bosnians mix, as do Christians and Muslims The centre of the bridge is wider and this kapia becomes the meeting point for parts of the community over the centuries It is the lives, loves and tragedies of [...]



    15. Quando scrisse questo libro, a met strada tra romanzo e analisi storica, Andri non poteva sapere quali drammatici eventi la Bosnia avrebbe vissuto Eppure in queste pagine, se ne intravedono i prodromi Sul ponte ci si chiede cosa vuol dire essere turco, musulmano, ebreo, serbo Ci si chiede cos l Europa, da dove nasce, dove va Un ponte che sembra dividere, dunque, eppure in quasi quattro secoli di storia ci sono stati anche momenti sereni, di unione, dove piccole storie si incrociavano con grandi [...]

    17. A case of putting in one s mouth than what he can swallow Or, maybe precisely, swallowing than what his stomach can digest.This book ends in the year 1914 and starts some three hundred years before, just before this great stone bridge was built on the powerful river named Drina Three hundred fourteen pages of three hundred or so years, roughly one page per year not that the author actually attempted to feature each year of these three centuries many he just skipped by fast forwarding the pass [...]
