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.
