Sleepwalkers I have nothing against a fast paced fright flick, but this Stephen King derived nonsense is too freshly scrubbed, too bright and modern The plot, about a new teenage boy in a small town who is a Sleepwalker sort of a cross between a vampire and a werewolf and who feeds on the blood of female virgins, begs for a mysterious, ambiguous treatment.

    One thought on “The Sleepwalker

    1. Nate D on said:

      Bleak and phantasmagoric, this plays out almost as a modernized The Other Side. A bunch of artists form an isolated community (here, as expats on the would-be utopia of a beautiful Greek island) but instead of productivity and freedom (or the slightest glimmer of happiness) they fall apart into personal problems, temporary loves, and all too often, death and dissolution (which becomes a kind of large-scale outside (divine?) apocalyptic force, as in the the plagues and collapse of The Other Side) [...]

      dreamersandco/2015/07/%CE%Την Μαργαρίτα Καραπάνου, την πρωτογνώρισα με το ιδιαιτέρως σκληρό και γκροτέσκο βιβλίο της Η Κασσάνδρα και ο Λύκος. Εδώ και καιρό είχα διαβάσει το βιβλίο της Ο υπνοβάτης, το οποίο είχε διακριθεί στη Γαλλία με το βραβείο του καλύτερου ξένου μυθιστορήματος το 198 [...]

      Disappointing. Strangely, what started out as gripping and impressive ended as a cartoon I was keen to be done with. Not that I dislike cartoons, but this one lacked weight, or self-consciousness. A shame, since the seed of something great was still there, but unpruned, gone to seed, left to run riot while Karapanou, I suspect, awaited the end as I did. My impression: a book that, free-growing and much-improvised as it was, then exhausted its author in the editing, which polished the first part [...]

      Δυστυχώς, παρόλο που γενικότερα μ'αρεσει η Καραπάνου, το συγκεκριμένο βιβλιο δεν το απόλαυσα καθόλου. Το γράψιμό της είναι γεμάτο και ο λόγος της χειμαρρώδης, στοιχεία που με κερδίζουν σε αλλα βιβλια αλλά εδώ ίσα ίσα με απομάκρυναν. Σε αυτό βοήθησε και η πλοκή του, που δεν τη [...]

      I would like to provide a few paragraphs from this beautifully written and translated book. The episode I'll excerpt struck me as particularly vivid (while sitting outside on a bazillion degree afternoon).It's from the end of the book, when the images were quickly shifting. -------Stephanos stood up, staggering, pulled the glass doors shut, locked them and put the key in his pocket. Then he went back to his chess game. In the closed space, the fans creaked unbearably, the music was deafening. Th [...]

      2.5 maybe. I feel like this book suffered because of unmatched expectations. The first chapter is so interesting (God vomits a new messiah) and then it's just 200 pages of sexually ambiguous hipster murder mystery. That might sound cool but it's not. Ending is kinda fun and weird. The chapter with Alfredo is good too. But the symbolic nature of the story kind of dominated the book at the expense of having actual, developed characters. I could hardly keep track of everyone—half of them are gay, [...]

      Amazing. It's hard to understand/accept this is a world where Karapanou isn't rabidly annointed or at least viciously condemned Anyway, I'm with the rabids. What a writer!

    8. Emily on said:

      Wow, this was a pretty crazy book! I . . . think I liked it? Oh, those Greeks. Composed of short chapters, little glimpses into the lives of the ragtag multilingual inhabitants of an unnamed Greek island, the majority of whom are trying to be writers or painters, the book covers the events following the arrival (although it seems he was already there, or at least everyone assumes that) of a new Messiah, sent down because God was bored. What follows is not what I expected. But it is very interest [...]

    9. Treasa on said:

      I continued reading because the writing was phenomenal. It was like nothing I'd read before for multiple reasons, one of them being how bizarre is was. The characters, the setting, the actions, all had a point and came together but I came close to putting it down. I get what it was trying to do/say and I think it's a very intruiging idea and message, but the way it got there was almost too strange for my taste. Strange sex, mostly.

    10. Torea Frey on said:

      I read about this little book on Words Without Borders (wordswithoutborders/book-r). Their review is better/more coherent than mine could hope to be, but I will say this: probably best not to read the harrowing, dystopic narrative while in a doctor's office waiting room.

    11. Constance on said:

      I found this book extraordinarily compelling, although I'm not really sure how much I really grasped it or whether or not I would recommend it.

    12. Sarah on said:

      Kind of like Francesca Lia Block, but not nearly as enjoyable. I find that books about artists are uninteresting. Just seems like their tour into unconventionality fails every time.
