    Jonathan Coe, as he has demonstrated many times, is an agile and humane writer, and this book is perfectly readable and fitfully affecting However, it s not the complex masterpiece it s touted as being What has been described as an intricate structure is, in reality, a protracted series of coincidences that carries on right to the end The central plot twist can be seen coming a mile away, and the four or five main characters lives intersect in so many ways that you d think they were the only people on earth It s like one of those nineteenth century operas in which someone puts on a mask or switches clothing, and suddenly nobody recognizes him any But at least in opera, there s the music.Coe handles the alternating chapter format gracefully, and I like the conceit of the sleep clinic it s the reason I got hold of the book to begin with The execution doesn t live up to the idea, though, and even a mad scientist can t perk it up rather the reverse I had high hopes for the missing film masterpiece plot thread, too but Coe, having brought it up, doesn t do much with it Some missed opportunities here, I d say.

    The House of Sleep provides a unique reading experience, that s for sure Its very structure resembles sleep, as the chapters are named after the stages one goes through when sleeping Hence, reading it, you actually feel like sinking into a restless sleep full of dreams Coe has made a hell of a job with the characters Each has their own path to follow, their own issues, fears and complications Yet they affect each other s lives in extraordinary manners One thing they all have in common though, is that none of them is entirely happy with who they are The narrative is a bit tricky and you have to be really thorough in order not to miss important plot points That s something I generally like in books and films, that is when the creators treat their audience as thinking, intelligent people However, I d be lying if I said that it left me with no questions I m convinced that it was Coe s intention to leave some things up to the reader s judgement Like how come the very building that housed the protagonists school years was turned into the sleep disorder clinic that would bring them back together And it s not just that The coincidences are just too many, while some of them give the story a metaphysical feeling Like the one with the photo and Robert s dream those of you who ve read it know what I m talking about Or some recurring events that shouldn t be recurring But wait that reminds me of something

    Un romanzo che si dipana attraverso il tempo e attorno ai suoi personaggi come le onde dei mari inglesi che descrive, toccando la giovent di un gruppo di studenti universitari, per poi distruggerla e ritrovarsi a svolgere la loro maturit , ad anni e paesaggi di distanza Un originale cornice narrativa che emula le fasi del sonno e della veglia, tema come il titolo stesso suggerisce centrale del libro, che viene sviscerato nelle sue molteplici manifestazioni Tra i protagonisti, infatti, vi sono una maestra d elementari narcolettica, un direttore di centro psicologico specializzato sulle malattie del sonno, un critico cinematografico che vive senza dormire da anni e una psicologa che lavora nel centro di cui prima Una lettura senza pretese, ma non per questo banale, anzi coinvolgente sin dalle prime pagine evidente la cura con cui il romanzo e la sua struttura sono stati progettati, vista la minuzia con cui ogni tassello occupa, pagina per pagina, il proprio posto all interno della storia.Sarebbe un 4.5, ma mannaggia a Goodreads che permette solo i voti interi.

    Ho trovato questo libro estremamente irritante le motivazioni sono le stesse che, invece, la stragrande maggioranza dei lettori almeno sulla base delle recensioni che ho letto su GR elenca per definire La casa del sonno un capolavoro L occasione mi fa riflettere ancora una volta, se mai ce ne fosse bisogno, su quanto sia soggettiva l interpretazione dei medesimi fatti.L intreccio, in cui nulla casuale, mi sembrato forzato e non sono riuscita a immedesimarmi nella vicenda Tutti i personaggi sono legati tra loro, anche quello che sembra essere un semplice passante in realt gioca un ruolo fondamentale Ogni cosa che accade, ogni frase detta avr il suo peso nel corso degli anni Sicuramente questa capacit di non lasciare nulla in sospeso ma di collegare tutto parte dell innegabile abilit di Coe, ma in questo romanzo portata alle estreme conseguenze In certi passaggi ho avuto l impressione di trovarmi di fronte a una di quelle soap opera in cui anche i personaggi morti apparentemente da anni in realt non lo sono per nulla perch erano naufragati in lontane isole deserte o in coma da anni e poi resuscitano tornando a pretendere il loro spazio I personaggi sono abbozzati, in alcuni casi ridotti a caricature Le vicende, articolate su due piani temporali met anni 80 e met anni 90 , sono descritte con dovizia di particolari ma poco o nulla sappiamo dei personaggi prima del periodo considerato dall autore view spoiler Gregory, in particolare, presentato come una persona disturbata sin dalla sua prima apparizione ma Coe non si sofferma a raccontare le vicende del suo passato che aiuterebbero il lettore a capire il suo comportamento hide spoiler

    Sometimes I think there must be something broken inside my head, for often as I read books which are labeled funny , hilarious , silly I find myself rarely cracking a smile during my reading In fact, I am often so distracted by the idea that it is labeled as such that I am downright disturbed that anyone would find humor in the work This is one of those books.Maybe to some sleep disorders are funny, maybe narcoleptics say and do funny things losing ones job due to narcolepsy must be the hilarious bit the San Francisco Chronicle was referring to on the front cover , and maybe I just don t know any different Personally I don t find any sort of disability quite so witty.Anyway, the story is about four friends from college Sarah, the narcoleptic Gregory, the obsessive and freaky boyfriend who wants to be a sleep doctor Terry, the obsessive and not so freaky film buff and Robert, the obsessive and probably highly confused fan of Sarah s Other characters come and go, the plot alternates chapter by chapter between the past and the present whatever, the nineties present, as the book was published in 97 , there are all sorts of heavy connections between all of the characters from beginning to end which makes for a fairly interesting read to see how it all comes around in a giant circle.If O Henry wrote darker, ironic stories, this might qualify Except it s not O Henry so therefore immediately isn t deemed to be as good I bounced back and forth while reading one page made me think it rated as a 3 star book, the next page made me want to rate it as a 2 star book I think the first half wasn t quite as good as the second part, but really my biggest complaint are the characters I just couldn t care about them all the time I wanted to, but some of them are so stupid Gregory or so pointless Terry , and really the only semi decent parts really involved Sarah and her lesbian phase with Veronica I just wanted .But I will say the sleep clinic freaked me the hell out.
