"Hopscotch" by Julio Cortazar is a novel I read with pleasure and great interest. The plot line of this book is not direct. It is well written novel with a very distinguished style. A parallel could be drawn with classic masterpiece "The Sun Also Rises" by Ernest Hemingway. The main hero Horacio Oliveira is quite intelligent. His life style, his friends with long metaphysical discussions in the night Paris, his relationship with girlfriends- all of this attracted my attention, sympathy and understanding. It is really doesn't matter what personages of this novel do, but rather interesting how they think and what their internal world looks like. Julio Cortazar, through the well-written conversations, opens insight world of his heroes, their interests, and their view on life. Here, I could find some similarities between Hemingway and Cortazar. The difference, however, is in the described generations. The generation Cortazar talks about in his work are more close and understandable to me than generation shown in the Hemingway's novel. Self-analysis, or self-reflection of the main heroes in the "Hopscotch" is very similar to those of which I and my friends used to have. In my opinion, the novel "Hopscotch" is so attractive to many other people and me because Cortazar created metaphysical world of intellectual fantasies. I could not resist temptation to mention another novel placed on the same bookshelf with "The Sun Also Rises" and "Hopscotch" - the novel "Gantenbein" by Max Frisch.

Saying that Hopscotch is "Cortazar's masterpiece...the first great novel of Spanish America" (Times Literary Supplement) is putting it mildly - I would start with a mere "absolute literary classic of all times and spaces". The saga of Horacio Oliveira, the story's protagonist, is delivered as how-I-am-chez-moi and how-I-am-au-dehors, displaying at once the situation endured by many post-WWII Latin Americans who dreamed about changing world (and ended up constructing infinite realities of themselves elsewhere, in nostalgic and melancholic scenarios), while portraying such universal themes of past, present and future on one end, and identity, behaviour, dreams, hopes, illusions... And imagination, on the other. Cortázar's grandiosity, as shown in Hopscotch, is literature's first novel ever written in hypertextual (non-linear) prose (emphasis: this was way before the Internet), wherein the reader, more active than ever, is the very author of the perfect circles with no closure (or a Derridean abyss, if you will), set where conversation and jazz are what you hear, smoke and Buenos Aires are what you smell, liquor and Paris are what you taste, La Maga is what you touch, and dreams and surreality are what you see. In the (non)end, this universal classic is written to be whatever you want it to be - and you can grant it unlimited identities here, there, everywhere.

Sometimes, a reader has the pleasure and opportunity to read something truly great, something that changes the readers way of thinking permanently. I recently had such an opportunity. Julio Cortazars Hopscotch is a miraculous book bubbling over with allusions, philosophical digressions and, first and foremost, outstanding writing. The book's form is reminiscent of James Joyce, constantly exploring new ways of writing. To recall the mood of this book, imagine the cast of "The Sun also rises", throw in some Beckett absurdisms, metaphysics, Paris in the 50's, a lovestory and some jazz. This is one way of describing Hopscotch. But, the best way of getting to know this mind-changing novel is to order the book, log of the net and start reading. And, when youre done, read it again. And, by the way, this book is even more enjoyable with the accompanyment of either Mingus' "Blues and roots", Coltranes "Blue Train" or Miles' "Kind of Blue". I hope you all will get the same kind of joy out of this book as I did.

Von Ein Kunde am 7. Dezember 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
Cortazar is one of the most brilliant writers that has lived during this century. Hopscotch itself is considered by many critics, including Salman Rushdie, as the greatest novel of the 20th century. I still do not understand why he didn't win the Nobel Prize. More Latin Americans have won the Nobel Prize for literature then writers of any other place: Gabriela Mistral, Pablo Neruda, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Octavio Paz, Miguel Angel Asturias, etc. Could it be that too many Latin American writers have received it and the judging comitee has to give everyone a chance? Is this why Julio Cortazar was never given the Nobel Prize? All we can do is look at Jorge Luis Borges, another brilliant Latin American writer and know that the answer is obviously yes. For these two men could have taken on all the writers of the worldat the time and won. Who else can surpass them? These men were geniuses!

Reviews are often too general and vague, but the ones I've read here are almost as enticing as the actual text. Postmodern perspective, allegorical possibilities, existensialism, alienation factors, intellectual and transcendental qualities, a must-read-book, journeys, games, love, seduction, madness, all these present and pervasive.
Literary collage, that's the function. Cortazar wrote that if he had the means to publish his works, all would be written in this "hopscotch" form. In the words or Morelli, any book could be read in any order, and perhaps by some reader making a mistake of reading chapters in a "wrong" order, the book might become "perfect."
It is a life changing book.
