    1. Ανθρώπινο, πολύ ανθρώπινο. Και πολύ καλά μονταρισμένο. Το χρονικό των τελευταίων μηνὠν του Κάφκα.


    2. Cách kể chuyện của tác giả thiếu hẳn sự mượt mà và chiều sâu mà trong một chuyện tình cần có. Tác giả sa vào kể tủn mủn bệnh trạng của Kafka mà lại không làm cho người đọc nhận ra rõ sự chuyển biến tâm trạng của ông vào những ngày cuối đời, thế nên giọng văn thấy rõ là giọng của người ngoài. Nhân vật Dora, người yêu cuối cùng của Kafka cũng rất mờ nhạt, có lẽ vì tác giả [...]


    3. procitajto/2017/02/06/rasKažu da ptice u sutonu života najljepše pjevaju. Kažu da se, na samom svom zalasku, život najčešće probudi i pokaže u svoj svojoj punini. Valjda kako bi ustao u svoju obranu i prkosno se usprotivio neumoljivo nadolazećem svršetku. Kažu da smo mi, ljudi, u trenucima kada pred sviješću o vlastitoj smrtnosti ne možemo okretati glavu ili zatvarati oči, sposobni proživljavati najintenzivnije osjećaje. Kažu da nas upravo spoznaja o skorašnjem odlasku nagoni [...]


    4. Nu știu câți dintre cei care l-au citit pe Kafka s-au întrebat dacă și în ce fel acest scriitor complicat, autor al unor texte departe de a fi luminoase, s-a bucurat de iubire. Romanul Splendoarea vieții, publicat de germanul Michael Kumpfmüller (specialist în tot ce înseamnă Kafka, dar și autor de ficțiune) în anul 2011 și tradus în 2015 în română de Iulia Dondorici, pentru Editura Univers, este una dintre cărțile ce m-au surprins frumos, căci reconstituie ficțional tocm [...]


    5. A bit of advice for anyone who chooses to read this book:I wouldn't recommend reading die Herrlichkeit des Lebens while you're sick. I had a pretty rough cold and sore throat while I was finishing it — not that I would in any way compare that to the horror of dying of TB — and whenever I had to read about der Doktor's inability to swallow because of his swollen voicebox, I got some serious sympathy pain. Plus, I was lucky enough to have someone very dear to me around to take care of my sick [...]


    6. ليست هذه قصة مبهجة. تتحدث الرواية عن السنة الأخيرة من حياة كافكا، عن العلاقة العاطفية التي ربطته بدورا ديامنت، وعن تدهور صحته المريع بسبب مرض السل. تحمل اسم (روعة الحياة) اذ تبدو محاولات الكاتب لإظهار تلك اللحظات التي حملت السعادة والجمال للحبيبين، واستشعرا فيها روعة الحياة. [...]


    7. It has been two weeks since I finished this book, and I have had time to mull over this, but it has not changed my initial impressions.Kumpfmüller writes with style, if with an old-fashioned choice of words. The book tells the simple story of a dying Franz Kafka falling in love with a young woman called Dora, even if his being Franz Kafka is not apparent until we get to something like page 94 – at which point, at the first mention of his first name, I went like 'huh? Who the fuck is Franz?'.I [...]


    8. Ein wunderschön erzähltes Buch über die Liebe zwischen Franz Kafka und Dora Diamant, das durch seine Schlichtheit besticht. Kumpfmüller beschreibt Kafkas letztes Lebensjahr, beginnend mit dem Aufenthalt in Müritz an der Ostsee, wo er Dora, eine junge Ostjüdin, die als Köchin in einem Kinderheim arbeitet, kennen und lieben lernt. Der Roman wandelt mit erstaunlicher Leichtfüßigkeit perspektivisch zwischen den beiden hin und her, beschreibt die erste Begegnung und das Erstaunen darüber, w [...]


    9. ‘Wie Dora heeft gekend, weet wat liefde is,’ schreef hun gezamenlijke vriend Robert Klopstock aan de ouders van Kafka.Kort voort zijn dood ontmoet de Hongerkunstenaar de joodse Dora, die zijn laatste grote liefde zal worden, de enige vrouw met wie hij heeft samengewoond. Tussen hun ontmoeting aan de Oostzee in juli 1923 en zijn overlijden in een klein sanatorium nabij Wenen in juni 1924 liggen amper 11 maanden, maanden waarin niet alleen zijn fysieke lijdensweg moeizamer wordt maar ook de ec [...]


    10. Tác giả dùng lạm phát làm nền cho câu chuyện tình yêu của Kafka, trang điểm hoa hoét lên ngôi mồ tình yêu ấy bằng tí chủ nghĩa bài do thái ở Đức. Thật ra cũng ko có gì đặc sắc, motif tình yêu cũ xì. Cách tiếp cận câu chuyện nhạt nhẽo. Sau khi tác giả đưa Kafka vào cái quỹ đạo mà ai cũng biết (quan hệ gia đình) nhưng lại ko hề lý giải đc tại sao lại phải thế, độc thoại nội tâm cực k [...]


    11. I like the simpleness in the structure and the writing style of the book. Sometimes it even felt plain and tasteless to me, but the smooth and nice parts made up for it. Desire and love were so strong in some parts that it truly felt like they would need nothing more than the other to live on.I think if love could exist between a dying writer and a Jewish girl, in the city of Berlin, in such inflation time, through all the protest from families, then, it could exist anywhere. Franz, at the end, [...]



    12. Nažalost prekratak, ali izrazito bogat i zanimljiv život Franza Kafke poslužio je kao predložak za mnoga djela pa među njima i ovo. Kumpfmüller u ovom romanu govori o zadnjoj godini Kafkina života i odnosu s Dorom Diamant, njegovom posljednjom ljubavi, gradeći priču na ono malo poznatih činjenica. Teško je reći u kojoj je mjeri priča istinita, no to zapravo nije ni bitno jer autorova namjera nije bila napisati biografiju već ispričati jednu neobičnu priču. Promatrajući roman na [...]


    13. một câu chuyện cảm động về những ngày tháng, cho đến giây phút cuối đời của nhà văn yêu thích Franz Kafka, cùng mối tình của ông với Dora Diamant, và sự chăm sóc ân cần, tận tụy, hết mình của cô.nếu so với một quyển khác đọc trong thời gian gần đây về một nhà văn yêu thích khác, quyển Alabama Song, viết về F. Scott Fitzgerald, và vợ của ông, cũng là một văn sĩ, Zelda, thì thích quyển về [...]


    14. Beautifully crafted biographic fiction told in an old-fashioned but fascinatingly authentic tone, relating the story of Franz Kafka's last year dying slowly and agonizingly from Tuberculosis, but not without a hopeful heart under the light of his extraordinary relationship to young Dora Diamant, whom he meets during a holiday at sea. I liked the way not only the famous writer but also his last love are given voice by alternating perspectives here, woven into the political climate and difficultie [...]


    15. Đây là quyển sách tôi đã phải lòng ngay từ lần đầu tiên nhìn thấy ảnh bìa. Những con sóng đập vào ghềnh đá bọt tung trắng xóa. Mặt biển xanh thẫm bình lặng xa xa. Màu trời trắng nhờ như một buổi hoàng hôn u ám. Phút tráng lệ cuối đời, trong vẻ đẹp có nỗi buồn, lại vì buồn nên mới đẹp. Bìa rất hợp với tựa, tôi nghĩ thế, mãi đến sau này khi tình cờ trông thấy một bìa demo khá [...]


    16. Michael Kumpfmüllers Die Herrlichkeit des Lebens ist ein Liebesroman. Es handelt sich von Franz Kafka, ‘Der Doktor’, der Tuberkolose hat und zum ausruhen nach der Ostsee zieht. An der Ostsee lernt er über ein Mädchen Dora kennen und verliebt sich in sie. Der Roman folgt die Beziehung, wie sie nach Berlin umziehen und folgt sie letztendlich auch ins Sanatorium.Das Buch besteht aus drei Teile: kommen, bleiben und gehen. Es ist geschrieben in der dritte Person, was am Anfang eine sichere Dis [...]


    17. De Heerlijkheid van het Leven gaat over het laatste jaar van Franz Kafka, dat hij – tot aan zijn dood door tbc – doorbracht met zijn nieuwe geliefde, Dora Diamant. Elk lid van onze leesclub mag 3 boeken voordragen, waar we dan over stemmen om tot de leeslijst voor het hele jaar te komen. Ik stemde zeker op dit boek, het gegeven leek me prachtig. Er is over deze periode niet veel bekend: Dora nam na Kafka's dood hun brieven met zich mee, en die zijn later door de Gestapo in beslag genomen.Nu [...]


    18. Estate 1923. Franz Kafka, ormai gravemente malato di tubercolosi, raggiunge la sorella Ellie presso la stazione balneare di Muritz, sul mar Baltico. Lì conosce Dora Diamont, una ragazza di circa venti anni più giovane di lui, ed è amore a prima vista. Il Dottore (verrà chiamato spesso così nell’opera) e la donna decidono di convivere a Berlino. Trascorrono mesi nei quali l’amore è il vero protagonista delle loro vite sino a quando Franz continua a peggiorare ed è costretto a numerosi [...]


    19. Kafka på stranden kunne Michael Kumpfmüllers roman også have heddet. Hvis altså ikke Murakami havde snuppet den titel til en helt anden slags bog.I Kumpfmüllers roman handler det imidlertid om “den rigtige” Kafka, Franz K. ham selv. Og om hans store kærlighed i sit sidste leveår i 1923-24, Dora Diamant.Kumpfmüller har angiveligt lavet grundig research som grundlag for bogen, og det fremgår af efterordet, at han også har haft en række “Kafka-eksperter” til at læse manuskriptet [...]



    20. Een prachtig geschreven, bijna romantisch, verhaal over het laatste levensjaar van Franz Kafka. In dat jaar ontmoet hij een jonge vrouw, Dora Diamant en trekt na de vakantie met haar naar Berlijn. Daar wordt zijn tuberculose steeds erger en hij moet naar een ander klimaat. Uiteindelijk komen ze in wenen terecht en hij sterft er slotte aan keeltuberculose. Op het eind kan hij niet meer praten noch eten of drinken. Nietbepaald eenprettig einde.Het is een prachitg geschreven boek. De schrijver zal [...]


    21. Dieses Buch ist traurig-schön, man lernt Franz Kafka von einer ganz anderen Seite kennen. In Die Herrlichkeit des Lebens ist er einmal nicht der ewige Sohn, sondern ein Mann, der wahrhaftige Gefühle entwickelt und diese auch erwidert bekommt.Kumpfmüller beeindruckt mit einem Schreibstil, der fast gänzlich auf wörtliche Rede verzichtet und doch schafft er es, dem Leser einen Eindruck von der Gefühlswelt der verschiedenen Charaktere zu vermitteln.Ich gebe zu, gegen Ende hin musste ich ein we [...]


    22. La meraviglia della vita è un amore che può illuminare anche la sofferenza più cupa, come accade quando Franz Kafka incontra Dora Diamant in una località sul mare. La malattia dello scrittore, la consapevolezza da parte di Dora della fine non lontana, li portano a concentrarsi sui piccoli gesti, sulle sfumature, che questo romanzo coglie con grande finezza introspettiva. Malinconico, ma molto intenso.


    23. Nakonec to nebylo špatné, ale nadšení se zkrátka nedostavilo. Možná by mi pomohlo být obeznámenější s Kafkovým dílem (přeci jen zdaleka jsem nezachytila všechna díla, o kterých byla v knize zmínka). V každém případě jako milostný román na mě příběh příliš nefungoval, připadalo mi to celé takové zvláštně upjaté a emoce z knihy na mě příliš nedoléhaly. Až poslední třetina mě vtáhla a dost vylepšila můj celkový dojem. Nebylo to ale špatné čten [...]


    24. Franz Kafkas letztes Jahr - einfühlsam und vorstellbar rekonstruiert. So könnte es wirklich gewesen sein, ein schreckliches und zugleich herrliches Jahr, denn der damals weitgehend unbekannte Autor hatte endlich die große Liebe gefunden. Mir hat diese ruhige Erzählung Kafka überhaupt zum ersten Mal etwas näher gebracht, denn ich wusste über seine Person und sein Leben bisher so gut wie nichts.


    25. Great and somehow modest, unpretentious written novel that not only captures the love of Kafka and Dora, but also that period of time in a poignant way.


    26. Kafka traieste "splendoarea vietii" prin iubire in ultimul an al vietii sale. O carte frumoasa ca un poem.
