A story about a guy (Pietro Paladini, protagonist in [Kalme Chaos]) who's life falls to pieces after some events, partially outside of his will, partially not wanting to know, not willing to see. But does it really falls to pieces? Or do the pieces actually come together like they never did before?
Veronesi wrote this "sequel" to [Kalme Chaos] because he was surprised, so did he tell himself on the occassion of a visit to Brussels bookshop Passa Porta, that 95% of the people only saw one aspect of Paladini's character or behaviour in that book. And he wanted to explicit the other side.
Now, this seems far fetched for me, it really looked as a kind of marketing stunt to promote this new book, but that was maybe because i myself was also so sucked into the "standard" recognition of the Paladini character.
Anyhow. This [Zeldzame Aarden] is a very nice book, at the start it looks like a mixture of the absurdity typical for [[Niccolo Ammaniti]] mixed with some cheap Italian action movie, but slowly it evolves towards the possible double twists, double layers, and certainly possible double interpretations that are so strongly present in other books by Veronesi. (see [XY] as best example)
Read this book: it contains again some very beautiful written passages, the end of the book is incredibly strong, it made me think about my own life and the people around me and it leaves you in astonishment: do we ever really know who we truly are? ( )
