Start your review of Roman o Londonu. Nov 19, Vit Babenco rated it it was amazing. To me this powerful, brilliantly written, psychologically deep novel about a suffering man and an indifferent town was a true page-turner.
Russian Prince Nikolai Radinovich Ryepnin — a very controversial protagonist — was thrown by revolution into the alien world where there is no place for him. A born aristocrat, raised on high ideals he is too proud to bow down before life. His idealism and arrogance bar his way to the success in this world where everything seems to be strange. A man is alone in poverty. Man's happiness is now in money.
London indifferently passes by those who had fallen into a gutter, goes by any separate man as if it passes by a midden. The hero slowly turns into a fatalist and his own enemy and he irrevocability proceeds to the bitter end. View all 4 comments. View 2 comments. Roman sa velikim R. Ipak, takav da, sa izvesne vremenske distance, malo gubi na aktuelnosti. Eh, moj Rjepnine Oct 21, Dragana rated it really liked it. Takes us back to the time after the October revolution in Russia, portraing the life of nobel emigrants in London.
Strugles they go through, pain of losing ones home and the destruction of a society that had existed for a long time. There are no more flashing parties, no wealth just the same numbness every day, paintfull, heartacheing.
Vitious circle that can be ended only by death. Apr 25, Milica rated it it was amazing. Big disappointment. Pathetically trying to be original at least in something, Crnjanski uses commas almost after every word I counted 90 on a randomly chosen page. Such style is ok for a sentence or two every now and then, to emphasize this or that, this way it's almost idiotic. Characterization is zero if telling us one thousand times that the main character is thinking about suicide and that he doesn't like anything about London or its people is telling me anything about him, then it's my f Big disappointment.
Characterization is zero if telling us one thousand times that the main character is thinking about suicide and that he doesn't like anything about London or its people is telling me anything about him, then it's my fault , story could be told in a few sentences. The rest is just filling up the pages, and it's mostly Crnjanski showing off, flaunting.
And pretending to understand even Lobachevski, which he obviously doesn't. In short: presumptuous writing and hollow content.
