商品の説明

内容紹介

Azaro is a spirit child. He made a pact with his spirit companions that when he was born he would die at the first oppurtunity, but after his birth, he broke the pact and continued to live. His spirit companions threatend to send seven spirits to reclaim him. So far, five have tried and failed, but the remaining two are the most dangerous of all. This continuation of the story of Azaro is rich with allegorical vision, and interwoven with the politics of Nigeria.

レビュー

"His most apocalyptic, explosive vision yet" (Scotsman)

"A novel of paradoxes and impossibilities, conceived poetically and carrying readers along as though on a fast-flowing stream...I admire it hugely" (Literary Review)

"A potent combination of political, metaphorical and mythical storytelling...pure celebration" (Scotsman)

"A deliberate and important piece of writing" (Times Literary Supplement)

"Okri's writing is hailed for its intelligent, tenderness, poeticism and luminosity" (Financial Times) --このテキストは、ペーパーバック版に関連付けられています。

5つ星のうち 1.0 Brutally boring and repetitive compared to The Famished Road 2014/4/11
投稿者 J. Strachan - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
This book was brutally boring and repetitive compared to The Famished Road, which I loved. Paragraph after paragraph seem like they could have be written by robots given a rigid vocabulary and a set structure in which to use the chosen words. "Insert fanciful animal hallucination with body part x like semi-precious stone x of color x as big as animal x flying through a sky of color x chased by fanciful animal x holding item x...." And so on for a couple hundred pages. I couldn't wait for it to be over. I find it hard to believe the Famished Road author actually penned this book. I'd guess a publisher hired a cheap ghost-writer, gave them an outline and commanded, "Write it like Okri!"

5つ星のうち 5.0 If the dreams came true 2011/4/1
投稿者 Jan Faerk - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
"Infinite Riches" is the third and last part of the series about the spirit child Azaro. His father is put in jail without any charges or sentence. The imprisonment leads to a rebellion of women in the city led by the mother af Azaro. As the father - the champion boxer Tyger - is not subdued by torture but stubbornly maintains his political and spiritual visions, he is relased from jail at great relief of the policemen as they fear he might also provoke a rebellion within the jail.

The long ending of the story concentrates on the election meeting before the first elections in Nigeria. The meeting ends in turmoil but the media report only wide support for the Party of the Rich. As if everything just took place in a dream. Madame Koto dies during the election meeting.

Sometimes we are more awake during our dreams, we listen to the whispers of the spirits, seeing what the gods are seeing in our lives and we turn up to be what we really are - these are some of wise thoughts of Ben Okri in the last chapters. If only we dared to start dreaming and trying in solidarity to realise our dreams of a beter live for all, the world would be filled with infinite riches.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Infinite Psychedelia 2000/11/1
投稿者 Edith de Vries - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
The language is truly beautiful in this book. Reading it feels like walking in a mysterious and luxurient tropical forest. Hoots, beeps, deep shades of green, flashing reds and yellows, sudden appearances - that is the undercurrent in this book. And just like in a rainforest, I got increasingly nervous the further I got and wanted to find a way out. The narrator in this story is a visionary young boy, who describes a couple of threatening happenings in his town. His father is aquitted for a murder he didn't commit, his mother rages through town to find him, the forest is being cut down and life flees from it. The fate of the two opposing characters - the black African Queen-like figure and the white Ambassador - is ornamented by the threatening and dreamlike (en)chanted events. A psychedelic combination.
