Enduring love – Ian McEwan

A balloon starts a storm. Intense feelings that show their endurance when at the two ends forces pull with full strength.
A book that encourages introspection and a passionate search for the answer to the question: how should an enduring love be? Are we sure that our perception is the correct one?

A broad leaf. So broad that it can endure the siege of heavy raindrops that powerfully strike it, creating a corny rhythm, and yet so magical. And the Moon. Yes, It. Surrounded by that hallo of luminous dust, which so generously often borrows to others. A broad green leaf and a Moon hallo. A light breeze, abounding of wet herbs.

Everyone has their own sandglass – Haralamb Zincă

This book caught my interest from the very beginning due to a story about Vlad Mușatescu. And then, I was allured by the superb narrations of somewhat familiar far-off places. Somehow, it seems that the passing of time does not affect the nature of people.
Haralamb Zincă ardently writes about the people he met during the Second World War, when he voluntarily joined the Soviet army.

Family, memories and friends are the main characters. And all of them are dominated by that invisible sandglass, keeping the score of our days. A super-hero is mother, presented in the last pages of the novel. But what if the sandglass does not carry us, and it’s the other way around?!
