    This is the book The best book for me I don t say it s the best book for everyone But for me, it is my mainstay, my main man, my mainsail Kazantzakis has made a work of stunning genius Simple Funny And true as Zorba I first read this book when I had leukemia and was being poisoned by chemo for one solid week 24 hours a day of it for one week, and this book kept me sane and my heart pure It s about life How does one live it How does one deal with the vicissitudes of it The tragedies the failures Does one stand on the sidelines of life and never jump in does one fear getting married or fear having children or fear doing any activity that could fail or come to naught Zorba tells us what to do And in the end, when the whole bloody mess comes falling down around us, and all our plans and schemes are for naught, what do you do Dance Dance as hard and as wild as you can Spit and fume and sing and smash your heels into the dirt And laugh at it all the absurdity of worry and wondering The joy of just being an...

    I m glad I read this book so that in the future I can tell people just how awful it is.Of course I ve heard of the author s reputation, along with that of the movie version of the book, so I was very eager to read and savor this book to find out exactly how wonderful it really was.Here s my summary privileged, naval gazing student meets presumptuous windbag, believes him to be answer to his navel gazing problems, women are denigrated left and right, reader is left awed at how this ever became popular.Really, it just is astonishingly bad to contemporary sensibilities Maybe when this was first published in 1946 then in English in 1951 2 it was a breath of fresh air narrative, but whatever was hailed as inspiring or positive about the Zorba character has, 65 years later, been lost to time and he s now reduced to a caricature of someone who is so chauvinistic that nothing is redeemable at all, even if one or two of the things he says are aphorism worthy.But the other 99.9% isn t worth anything Want to know what his views on women are They re weak, they don t know anything, they re easily won over if you grab their breasts really , all a woman needs is a man between her legs especially if they re widows , and in fact they re happy and grateful and melt if any man gives them any attention which they should be grate...

    I finally read this after it was in my TBR pile for many years I m glad I did as it is a pretty good read I ll structure the review in terms of themes A wealthy young man thirtyish , whom Zorba calls boss, hires Zorba to run his coal mine and tree harvesting business on the Greek island of Crete Zorba not only runs the entire business and the hiring and supervision but even the financing as well as doing physical labor I looked at Zorba in the light of the moon and admired the jauntiness and simplicity with which he adapted himself to the world around him, the way his body and soul formed one harmonious whole, and all things women, bread, water, meat, sleep blended happily with his flesh and became Zorba I had never seen such a friendly accord between a man and the universe He Zorba interrogates himself with the same amazement when he sees a man, a tree in blossom, a glass of cold water Zorba sees everything every day as if for the first time Zorba has traveled all over the world He has a wife and children somewhere As a former soldier, he has killed Turks in Greece and Bulgars in the Balkans Now that he is over 60 hi...

    I read Zorba the Greek, originally titled Alexis Zorba, by Nikos Kazantzakis as part of my 2017 classic bingo challenge Considered the 20th century Greek novel most known to American audiences, Zorba chronicles the lives of two unlikely friends as they attempt to build a mining empire in Crete Later a movie starring Anthony Quinn, Zorba is an impassioned novel detailing Greek culture while also going in depth into the souls of two complex men Our narrator first meets Zorba at a tavern in Piraeus Although he has traveled all over Europe and is about to embark for Crete to begin a mining expedition there, he is known by sailors as a book worm While his miners toil, the narrator is content pouring over a manuscript or reading the teachings of the Buddha At first glance it is apparent that he is not well versed in the ways of the world, and, amidst the teasing of his companions, Zorba appears and insists on leading the team of miners The two set sail for Crete, and both an adventure and deep friendship commence While copper mining is the premise for this Greek classic, the novel centers on the title character Zorba...
