For five years, Enn Padrik has postponed the investigation into the apparently religiously inspired suicide of his daughter and her friends at a commune near Viljandi, but now he cannot do it any longer He has to travel all over Estonia and even to France to talk to those who might remember anything relevant Some of these people seem to have been waiting for him, othersFor five years, Enn Padrik has postponed the investigation into the apparently religiously inspired suicide of his daughter and her friends at a commune near Viljandi, but now he cannot do it any longer He has to travel all over Estonia and even to France to talk to those who might remember anything relevant Some of these people seem to have been waiting for him, others refuse to talk And little by little, a bigger and quite unexpected picture starts to emerge.From the late 1970s through 2011, the book spans the lives of two generations, the changes in the world at large and the Estonian society in particular, the transition from a world of rights and wrongs to a world where most things are neither, but the yearning for absolute truths still won t go away.

Comments The Reconstruction (Estonian Literature)

  • Melissa

    Enn Padrick, the narrator of The Reconstruction begins writing in a journal in order to catalog his private investigation into his young, adult daughter’s bizarre death: “I didn’t know it when I began, but I do now: I don’t want to blame anyone or anything; or if I do, then only myself. But I needed clarity. I don’t want to find fault; I want to find out—if I only can.” Enn’s daughter, Anni, had been living in a quasi-religious commune with three other friends, all of whom died i [...]

    ei ole oluline, kas see, mida me usume, on tingimata tõsi Oluline on see, milliseks see meid teeb. Ma ei suuda hukka mõista ei tahtmist enda vastu jäägitult ausaks jääda ega kompromissitut soovi minna lõpuni. Aga kohe, kui nende taga tõstavad pead halastanatus ja põlgus - ning kui mängus on mõni jumal, noor või vana, ja ükskõik kui ilusat ligimesearmastust jutlustav, aga selline, kes meid jäägitult endale nõuab, siis juhtub see tingimata -, on minu jaoks piir ületatud. Ainuke u [...]

    I knew very little about Estonia when I started reading The Reconstruction, but visited the country part-way through and started to get more into it after learning more about Estonian history. However, I then lost my way with this novel a bit. Being more familiar with Estonia might have helped, I expect. Whilst I felt invested in the stories of the narrator, his daughter, and a couple of other characters, there were too many others whose journeys and philosophies I struggled to follow or care ab [...]

    Ei suutnud lõpuni lugeda. Rein Raud on minu arust väga tark mees ning kirjanikuna ka täitsa nauditav, kuid selles raamatus oli natukene raske tegevusega kaasa minna. Tekst kippus olema laialivalguv, kuid see-eest oli huvitav lugu. 3.5/5, kuid ümardan seekord hinde neljaks. :)

    Hyvä kuvaus ihmisen ajattelusta. Henkilöhahmot uskottavia, tosin (naiviuttani kai) ihmettelin jatkuvaa ryyppäämistä. Viron lähimenneisyys miljöönä kiinnostaa aina. Pariisikin oli kuvattu hyvin. Teemaksi näkisin ehkä suljetun idealismin ja sen vaarat. Henkinen ja hengellinen etsintä kääntyy teoksessa lahkolaisuudeksi. Mielestäni Raud kuvaa tätä prosessia muuten onnistuneesti, mutta syvään hengellisyyteen kuuluva irrationaalinen pyhyyden kokemus jää pois. Raudin henkilöt ovat [...]


  • Andrei

    Rein Raua kirjastiil on tavapäraselt sümpaatne ja intelligentne, kuid sisulist haaravust ja tihedust napib. Lugesin täpselt poole peale, leidmata enda jaoks ühtki head põhjust edasi minna. Hõreda-, aeglase- ja laialivalguvavõitu.

    Olipa vangitseva ja monitahoinen kirja.
