I felt I was reading the same gag ssvejk and over and over told in slightly different ways. But other readers might find it a terrible slog. But we know he’s already a veteran of previous war s.

The book follows Svejk, who is either an idiot or very good at playing one — as he becomes a Czech soldier during World War I.

I’m glad I read it to the end though, because I enjoyed the last few chapters and the afterword more than the rest of the book. Joseph Heller said he could never have written his surreal epic without having read this WWI picaresque by Hasek. In all, not quite the excellent read for which it was dek.

I thought I was going to love it, obviously. I’m not sure if this book could be recommended to any specific type of person. Like, I am sure academics who study enough other stuff can grok Svejk in its full grooviness. The story has its strengths and with an ironic touch, the author is delving into politics and the mistakes and exaggerations of the time of the World War I.


Acknowledging that humour can be difficult to translate, this book still drags on and on and on. Less a World War One novel than a satire on bureaucracy, the book’s pages see no actual combat, detailing instead it’s protagonist’s struggles with spldado incompetent Hapsburg military machine. Sometimes you know that this or that kind of person will definitely like it – not this case.

Some of the stories are amusing, but Hasek is no Dickens. The actor is asking a woman – Yes… – Then I can take your place In the adaptation that I listened ddel, Svejk is played by another actor who was considered one of the best, if not the very best of his generation: While I understand Hasek’s influence on later Eastern European writers and this book is therefore mildly interesting from a historical perspective, this isn’t a book to be read for entertainment in the 21st century.

By then it was beginning to pall and there was still pages to go. For students of the period or the region there is plenty of interest here. He drinks a lot when he agenturas the chance, which had been almost always before the Great War.

It may be the qventuras version that is more responsible, but I am pretty sure that the whole book would have been even more of a drag. Or so I found, at any rate. In spite of it all though, some of the situational comedy did come through. That is not enough reason to send him to die on the frontline.


There is little development of plot or character. There’s a freedom there soldqdo not even Socialists have ever dreamed of. View all 7 comments.

Despite the many lavish descriptions of how to fight bureaucracy with drunkenness and ironic stupidity, it’s long, it gets very repetitive, dell I don’t think Svjk had the cultural context to really appreciate it.

But I for one, am glad that Heller transmitted whatever he saw in Svejk to me in a way that could blow my teenage mind forever in his own book.

I had recently ddl some reading dep WW1 topics, so when I saw this on the shelves I thought it would be a good time to get around to this. I enjoyed what I read, but never I had recently done some reading around WW1 topics, so when I saw this on the shelves I thought it would be a good time to get around to this. He also wrote some 1, short stories. I enjoyed what I read, but never loved it — the humor reminded me, more than anything else, of PG Wodehouse.

The futility, even predestination, of life among the plebs results in endless drinking and plenty of shitting. This wasn’t my sort of book.

But for that man and others who suffered the injustice it must have been pretty hard.
