Somewhat special, somewhat very special. Gadda seems unable to tell a story. Descriptions, enumerations, adjectives, endless descriptions take the place of the story, if there has been a story to start with, or that would lead somewhere, beware!
Sometimes this is hilarious, violent, powerful, breathtaking. But it's also boring, ennoying and relentlessly slowing down your reading. It also makes you wonder sometimes, after another ten pages: what the f*ck have i been reading the last half an hour?
And then, on the verge of despair, there is chapter 5: such an intense personal description, such a beauty of a portrait. Yes, Gadda can write. Yes, it's autobiographic and thus moving. But please, Carlo, you could have written a complete book like this and you didn't! ( )

In die jaren, tussen 1925 en 1933, lieten de wetten van Maradagal, een land zonder veel natuurlijke rijkdommen, de grondbezitters de keuze om zich al dan niet aan te sluiten bij de provinciale nachtveiligheidsdiensten (Nistitúos provinciales de vigilancia para la noche), en wel vanuit de overweging dat ze toch al gebukt gingen onder buitengewone heffingen en uiteenlopende belastingen, waarvan de globale som in enkele gevallen gelijk was aan - of soms zelfs groter dan - de handelswaarde van de weinige banzavóis die de landerijen ieder schrikkeljaar met de zegen van Ceres en Pales kunnen opbrengen: met andere woorden het ene jaar van de vier waarin geen droogte, geen aanhoudende regens in zaai- en oogsttijd voorkwamen en niet de hele karavaan ziekten door het land was getrokken.
