East Dane Designer Men's Fashion. The protagonist is a young adult of 17 years but this is more an adult than a young adult book. Jun 30, Klaudia rated it really liked it Shelves: This is the latest Europa Edition that I've read, and I must say it wasn't a disappointment. I thought Bronsky's debut novel "Broken Glass Park" was a page turner, and a very quick read.
I'm a real sucker for immigrant stories, especially ones written about post communist immigrants living in the West. I've never stumbled upon narratives of immigrant life in Germany, or in any of the Western European countries for that matter, until I picked up Bronsky's works. Frankly, I don't think "hard life" narratives are cliche; maybe because at least a billion people live under the poverty line in this world, and a few more billion live just above it. What I think is particularly interesting about this novel is the type of lifestyle that is portrayed in a Russian ghetto in Germany it's insightful , and the type of problems Sascha and her family face.
I felt that aside from a few "amazing" coincidences, this novel is somewhat real in subject matter; there are parts of it where you actually question how reliable the narrator really is and wonder if she's going insane, and I like that about Bronsky's style of writing. The ending could have been better, but it was more realistic than I thought it would be, so I don't have many qualms about it. Sep 10, Patrick O'Neil rated it really liked it. Alina Bronsky's stunning debut novel, Broken Glass Park , is a total first person narrative.
The reader hears year old Sascha's voice as she plots murder, dissects relationships, threatens thugs, has sex, and describes her neighborhood's squalor and the drudgery of her life. It's all tell, no show, and surprisingly it works. Yet Sascha's not playing the sympathy card, and her mother was murdered, in front of her, by her stepfather, the man she wants to kill, the scumbag loser she told her moth Alina Bronsky's stunning debut novel, Broken Glass Park , is a total first person narrative.

Yet Sascha's not playing the sympathy card, and her mother was murdered, in front of her, by her stepfather, the man she wants to kill, the scumbag loser she told her mother to leave, but her mother wouldn't listen. Bronsky writes at breakneck speed, like she's possessed and has to get the whole story down on paper before somehow it gets away. There's an urgency that's contagious. And although the plot is very dark, there's beauty in the sadness, and there's a method to the sense of futility. And it all comes out of the mouth of a year old Russian girl in a decrepit Berlin tenement with bloodstains on the floor.
Jul 26, Lisa Hayden Espenschade rated it liked it Recommends it for: People interested in crime, difficulties for immigrants, or the effects of violence. Broken Glass Park has many of the elements I love to find in fiction: Perhaps it was Bronsky's success in creating settings and people that made her narrative feel weak: I felt the book lacked structure. Though Bronsky packs in lots of events and interesting scenes, I came away feeling I'd read a portrait rather than a novel with a beginning and an end.
That's not always a bad thing, I suppose, but I found the book a little disappointing because I thought more shape would have made it a very, very good and absolutely devastating book rather than just a good and memorable book.
I wrote about the book on my blog here. Aug 05, Alycia rated it did not like it. This book starts so interesting and it just completely loses it once she takes the train to Frankfurt which would take almost five hours and gets to talk to everyone at the newspaper right away. It really just went off the rails.
I want to say something got lost in translation but this author is supposed to be a wunderkind? Not from this book! Alina Bronsky has such a great literary voice. There is so much sadness, anger and pain in this book. English Title is Broken Glass Park, highly recommend it. Ihre Taten werden aneinandergereiht und dann wieder komplett vergessen.

Es gibt weder irgendwelchen Reaktionen und schon gar keine Konsequenzen. Mar 09, Nick rated it really liked it. There is no doubt much to be said economic, and social constraints on that account, and perhaps something about male narcissism as well. Sascha Naimann is a fierce, intelligent heroine for our time, a Russian immigrant to Germany, her family shattered by domestic violence.
Like Holden Caulfield she is haunted by death and hungry to find out what is genuine and what counterfeit—finding mostly the latter, of course. Sascha is intense and sardonic, yes, but utterly herself. She is give the chance to escape, to leave the cramped apartment building and seedy neighborhood where she lives with siblings and aunt, and enter the milieu of well-heeled families in large, silent, almost empty mansions. Instead she brings those two worlds together.
And then leaves them both. Ci sono quei libri che ti fanno pensare: Sasha a 1 Ci sono quei libri che ti fanno pensare: Sasha ha due desideri: This revenge novel opens with a Russian girl who wants to murder her step-father, who killed her mother and her mother's boyfriend two years ago.

I wasn't wowed by the structure and I sometimes found the stream of consciousness style unfocused. There was a lot of information delivered the first 20 pages or so and at times the narrative felt overwhelming - too much going on, too many characters introduced, characters dropped in favor of advancing other characters - BUT this style felt right for the book. Sascha has had a lot of turmoil and upheaval in her life. Und dann sehe ich, wie in einem Fenster auf dem Bildschirm ein Text entsteht.
Lebst du dein Leben? Er schiebt mir die Tastatur zu. Ich denke kurz nach und tippe: Komm nicht auf die Idee dich mit mir zu vergleichen. Wenn man auf den letzten Seiten immer langsamer liest, weil man einfach nicht will, dass es zu Ende geht.
Aug 16, Jason Furman rated it it was amazing Shelves: A stunning novel, everyone should read it. This is Alina Bronsky's first novel.

Sascha is brilliant, both cruel and kind, both strong and helpless.
