    Good Lord, this is one depressing book Page after page, story after story of the most awful things people have to bear It is dark and heavy, with most characters living lives that are hopeless, chaotic, and unstable.I echo the other reviewers who have praised author Ikonomou for so powerfully capturing the poverty, despair, and destitution people are experiencing in Greece s garbage economy But what struck me most about this book is how negatively women are portrayed always helpless, sad, borderline crazy They are abandoned and oblivious and, even though they are the ones keeping their families together, they still somehow come off as weak They are raped and whored out A LOT Even in the stories where they are the main and sometimes the only characters, they always play second fiddle to the men Is this a cultural thing Is this simply an accurate portrayal of how women are treated in Greece And is Ikonomou okay with it Or is he trying to make a point against it I m not sure But, yikes, it s bleak.Reading this book was depressing and eye opening If you read all the stories in one sitting, like I did, prepare to be overwhelmed with the sadness of it all I wish I had chosen to digest them bit by bit Instead, I zipped through itand then had to have a good cry afterward The book is powerful, but, wow, it s a lot to absorb.See of my reviews at www.BugBugBooks.com.

    Poignant profile of Greece in crisis, told through a series of short stories that leave your heart clenched I read this in English after my favorite local bookstore featured a series of books in translation and can t help but notice the disorientation of reading a work in your mother tongue displaced into the language you now use most.

    The protagonists of these stories are living the hell A hell of misunderstanding and extreme poverty Not a ray of light illuminating their lives, not the smallest hope These stories seem to be set in ancient times, when fate was a fearsome and powerful god, and instead are set in today Greece, the one of the times of the crisis.The only drawback there are many, too many At one point the reader gives a crash under such despair.Thank Archipelago Books and Netgalley for giving me a free copy in exchange for an honest review.I protagonisti di questi racconti vivono l inferno Un inferno di incomprensione e di estrema povert Non un raggio di luce rischiara le loro vite, non la pi piccola speranza Sembrano essere ambientati in tempi lontanissimi, quando il fato era un dio temibile e potente, e invece sono ambientati nella Grecia di oggi, quella dei tempi della crisi.Unico neo sono tanti, troppi A un certo punto il lettore cede di schianto sotto tanta disperazione.Ringrazio Archipelago Books e Netgalley per avermi fornito una copia gratuita in cambio di una recensione onesta.

    This was a real haul, and not because it was bad What is presented in these stories of unrelenting grimness is a realistic portrayal of life for the average person living in Greece and how ordinary lives are impacted by that country s financial collapse Visitors remember Greece as being sun drenched, steeped in history, cheerful For her citizens, however, it s as bad or worse than anything we are familiar with in our own country Plus, in all these stories, it seems to be raining already or about to One character remarks that even the rails on her balcony are weeping A real eye opener.

    Beautifully translated by Karen Emmerich, Something Will Happen, You ll See is a modern Greek tragedy Telling the stories of ordinary people whose lives have been destroyed by Greece s economic crisis, it echoes the classical tragedies in form, while using completely modern language that captures a moment of utter sorrow, betrayal and hopelessness.The smell of halva spreads through the house and for a moment disguises the smell of Friday and the smell of loneliness and the smell of the malicious poverty that is slowly and silently and confidently gnawing at Ellie s dreams and strength and life and those of anyone who lives to work, who is born and lives and dies for work For a handful of bills.The stories stand on their own, but read in their entirety they give a nuanced sense of the despair that invades the hearts and minds of the characters As they lose their jobs, their homes, their loved ones, or as they huddle together around a fire for warmth and companionship, or as they cling to each other in fear of the night and the coming storm of bankruptcy, the stories look inward, at their selfishness, and their helplessness A woman climbs into bed with a man shaped halva, eating him as revenge Five men tell stories around a fire as they try to escape the cold night and the fear that comes with it A man collects his father from jail A couple tells fairytales as their neighbors remove the walls of their home, stone by stone A young man stands watch over the neighborhood, guarding his mother and sister from threats of rape and murder As the desperation of poverty chips away at their humanity, the people cling to a sense of control over their own fate Meanwhile, a storm is coming the wind picks up, it starts to rain, and a Christmas tree is swept off a balcony.He s drenched, dripping all over as if every pore in his skin is an eye and every eye is crying It s raining harder Raining with hatred, like a punishment Lightning keeps flashing across the sky It s like there s a war on up there light warring with darkness A war Light battling to enter the world and someone battling to shut it out, to seal up all the cracks, to sink the world in darkness.The writing hooked me from the first page it is lyrical, poetic, and emotionally devastating Reminiscent of the greek chorus, motifs, phrases, and entire passages are echoed and repeated each time with new meaning and overwhelming effect The brewing storm, the repeated motif of fear of the night these images become charged with emotional symbolism that captures a moment of pain in a nation s psyche.And parents will tell their children stories about strange people who once lived and died for a handful of cash and the children will listen with their mouths hanging open and all these things will seem magical and unreal.The characters are easy to empathise with, although they are, for the most part, utterly unlikable Perhaps I didn t like them because they were too human, too flawed, too real This book felt unforgivingly honest As they feel betrayed by those who are supposed to protect them the officials who place useless recycling bins on the streets rather than working to solve the problems they face looking busy but failing to do anything real the characters resent those who are able to succeed, and claw at each other for scraps A stream of consciousness style makes the voices blend together into a single song of poverty The improvised nature of this makes it all the convincing it echoes the hysteria that is slowly brewing But there is also a thread of faith, of solidarity despite the fear So often, the voices change from I to We , from me to us , and the sense of community gives a semblance of hope.We talk and talk and the we talk the better I understand that what binds us together are the things we re afraid of and the things we hate How did we end up like this Where did all the hatred and fear come from, can you tell me And the time passes the worse things get Some days I see things that make me want to kill someone My lord I went through hell on the ships all those years but I never felt a thing like that Never But now it s too much I m drowning, you know Drowning.This is such a powerful, devastating little book I couldn t put it down it is an accident from which I could not tear myself away As the storm slowly blows in as the sun sets and the darkness creeps over the islands as the people stifle their sorrows in alcohol and cigarettes, or cling to each other out of fear as the world is destroyed, piece by piece, until nothing remains, the voices in this book cry to be heard It is definitely worth reading Read of my reviews at Literogo.comI received this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Really liked, of course, isn t quite right The book is heartrending what saves it from merely depressing the reader is the author s empathy with the down and out people he depicts He shows their despair but also their capacity to take in beauty and feel wonder in the worst of moments This capacity doesn t exactly save them from poverty and hunger, but it saves them from the impulse toward suicide mostly I feel I now know a lot about Greece and its crisis, its financial inequities, and the feelings of people at the bottom of the heap The style is Faulknerian sometimes annoyingly so lyrical and full of marvelous metaphors Above all, full of humanity Not knowing Greek, I can t judge this carefully, but Emmerich s translation seems excellent.

    This book is not a pick me up and may not be the light beach read you re looking for.Why you should still read it Iknomou has an amazing lyrical quality to his work Through this series of short stories, you can connect deeply with the characters, who are life like, warts and all This series gives faces, albeit fictional ones, to the economic crisis in Greece Ikonomou shows the power of fiction to share truths that no newspaper article has conveyed yet about the ongoing crisis there Must read.

    The first stories were a little stronger than the last, but all in all this was beautiful and devastating.
