A few words

‘My name is Raphael Ignatius Phoenix and I am a hundred years old – or will be in ten days’ time, in the early hours of January 1st, 2000, when I kill myself…’ Raphael Ignatius Phoenix has had enough. Born at the beginning of the 20th century, he is determined to take his own life as the old millennium ends and the new one begins. But before he ends it all, he wants to get his affairs in order and put the record straight. That includes making sense of his own long life – a life that spanned the century. He decides to write it all down and, eschewing the more usual method of pen and paper, begins to record his story on the walls of the isolated castle that is his final home. Beginning with a fateful first adventure with Emily, the childhood friend who would become his constant companion, Raphael remembers the multitude of experiences, the myriad encounters and, of course, the ten murders he committed along the way . . . And so begins one man’s wholly unorthodox account of the twentieth century – or certainly his own riotous, often outrageous, somewhat unreliable and undoubtedly singular interpretation of it.

    Πρόκειται για ένα ιδιαιτέρως ευφάνταστο μυθιστόρημα, που κρατά αμείωτο το ενδιαφέρον του αναγνώστη και του προσφέρει κάποιο χαμόγελο που όμως θα μετατραπεί σε σμίξιμο των φρυδιών. Θεωρώ πως δεν προσέχτηκε όσο θα έπρεπε από το ελληνικό κοινό. Ίσως γιατί δεν έχουμε συνηθίσει ένα τόσο υποδόριο χιούμορ, όπως αυτό που διέθετε ο πρόωρα χαμένος βρετανός Πολ Σάσμαν
