    This is a brief and deceptively simple novel about the real life story of one of the world s greatest runners of all time, Emil Z topek Narrated with gusto and charisma, it almost reads like a fable of sorts Very enjoyable.

    Echenoz wrote ironics biographie He choose an historic person and he applied a method no empathy for him, a certain distance and benevolence He accentuates their greatnesses and meanness There was Ravel, Telsa Here it is Zatopeck Easy to read, funny, fast forgotten.

    An excellent, brief portrait of the life of a top athlete in communist Czechoslovakia Echenoz chronicles Emil Zatopek s rise from a non athletic teen working in a shoe factory to an enthusiastic runner and a true sensation of international competition For many years Zatopek was one of the best known celebrity s in his country, though his life took a sad turn after his vocal support of Alexander Dubcek s liberalizing but short lived reforms in the late 1960s.Echenoz adopts a conversational and An excellent, brief portrait of the life of a top athlete in communist Czechoslovakia Echenoz chronicles Emil Zatopek s rise from a non athletic teen working in a shoe factory to an enthusiastic runner and a true sensation of international competition For many years Zatopek was one of the best known celebrity s in his country, though his life took a sad turn after his vocal support of Alexander Dubcek s liberalizing but short lived reforms in the late 1960s.Echenoz adopts a conversational and often casual tone Reading this book, it s easy to imagine that Echenoz constructed a couple of particular narrative vantage points and then worked at creating a style allowing him to slip fluidly between them Trying to pin these vantage points down, I began picturing the narrator as, perhaps, sometimes a close personal friend and sometimes an anonymous countryman who has followed Zatopek s career closely and with great relish And though Zatopek s famous competitions accumulate quickly in this small book, there is never any monotony to the races, since Echenoz has a great talent for pulling the unique spectacle out of every scene.Finally, I should note that the narrative in this book isrelaxed, breathes a bit , than in some of Echenoz s novels And though it is not quite as challenging as, say, Chopin s Move, the novel is nonetheless a very engaging read

    While it does not have nearly as many wonderfully magical touches that Lightning does, one must expect the tone of a book to match it s subject Although Emil Zatopec was a colourful character, the world he lived in was pretty grey and this oppressive atmosphere seeps its way into the story This dark element is balanced against Echenoz s light touch and charming conversational style, and I find this blend of dark and light fascinating Beneath the main narrative of Emil s athletic feats there i While it does not have nearly as many wonderfully magical touches that Lightning does, one must expect the tone of a book to match it s subject Although Emil Zatopec was a colourful character, the world he lived in was pretty grey and this oppressive atmosphere seeps its way into the story This dark element is balanced against Echenoz s light touch and charming conversational style, and I find this blend of dark and light fascinating Beneath the main narrative of Emil s athletic feats there is the story of Czechoslovakia s political history from the Nazi invasion all the way through to the Soviet s crushing of the Prague Spring, and Echenoz deftly ties these two strands together at the end

    Had a hard time deciding what to rate this book I am a runner and so therefore, find most running stories interesting to some extent I enjoyed reading about Emil s training methods, race victories and even, inevitable race failures later in his career However, the writing was poor It was choppy, in by that I mean there were times that many details were missing between chapters and even sometimes between paragraphs so much so that on many occasions I found myself double checking that I had Had a hard time deciding what to rate this book I am a runner and so therefore, find most running stories interesting to some extent I enjoyed reading about Emil s training methods, race victories and even, inevitable race failures later in his career However, the writing was poor It was choppy, in by that I mean there were times that many details were missing between chapters and even sometimes between paragraphs so much so that on many occasions I found myself double checking that I hadn t missed a few chapters or pages somehow Just one of many examples is when it went from how he agreed with his father that running was a waste of time and in no way enjoyable to him enjoying runs with his buddies There were also times that it read as a biography, sometimes when it read as a fiction story and then other times where I felt like I was simply reading Wikipedia

    I am not sure what to make of the style At times it reads like a transcript from a documentary on Emil Zatopek Yet, it was engaging At times, it read as if a favorite uncle or storyteller was bringing us back to the time of a running hero, the story being told in present tense It s hard to say how much I miss through the translation, but I always trust that the translator has tried to maintain the voice of the author I am curious and will ponder the style for a while It is definitely a gre I am not sure what to make of the style At times it reads like a transcript from a documentary on Emil Zatopek Yet, it was engaging At times, it read as if a favorite uncle or storyteller was bringing us back to the time of a running hero, the story being told in present tense It s hard to say how much I miss through the translation, but I always trust that the translator has tried to maintain the voice of the author I am curious and will ponder the style for a while It is definitely a great read for runners and former runners and tells of time before the sport was stolen from true athletes by corporate sponsored performance enhancing drugs

    To and through empty with Emil.

    Wish I could have read this in its original French But interesting enough.

  9. says:

    Interesting novel about a Czech long distance runner during the Communist era and the physical and political challenges he faced Echenoz is a wonderful writer.

    A random selection from available library books Translated, with an abrupt ending, but still interesting to read about Emil Z potek s rise to stardom in the running world during and after WW2.
