Max Power Power de Karanovac, Bosnia and Herzegovina
This book is full of humor and drama. I enjoyed his writing style. It's interesting to learn about a holistic sanitarium in Michigan in 1907.
The metaphors are ripe in this book even as the language is plain. Or, maybe there aren't any metaphors at all. The book tells a compelling story that just so happens to rail against government bureaucracy, the taboos of society, and the modern idea of 'work' in an unsubtle yet tragically comic way. Since I tend to agree with all of these sentiments, I enjoyed the book. I would be curious what its tendency would be on those who don't feel the same way. As a sailor without papers in Europe, the protagonist watches the post-Great War milieu with a sardonic and sarcastic attitude. Somehow the story told feels surprising modern, despite the copyright date and setting.
