    One thought on “The Visiting Professor”

    1. nice book, not too interesting, but just… The way it’s written, the expressions, the point of view on things, that kinda thing.

    2. για να είμαι ειλικρινείς, όταν η φίλη μου μου πρότεινε αυτό το βιβλίο και όντας λιγάκι αρνητικά προκατειλημμένη απο τον τίτλο- περίμενα κανα δευτεροκλασάτο λαβ στόρι, δεν ειχα καθόλου απαιτήσεις και φιλοδοξίες.ναι, με κατέλαβε εξ εξαπίνης.δεν με ενθουσίασε γιατί αφήνει κεν [...]

    3. Publisher's WeeklyForsaking his customary thriller territory, Littell ( The Revolutionist ) here finds fertile new ground in the farther reaches of mathematics, which prove a wellspring of rich and consistently surprising comedy. When Lemuel Falk, a Russian ''theoretical chaoticist on the lam from terrestrial chaos,'' arrives to take up his visiting fellowship at Backwater University, he is immediately confronted by a blizzard of Americana: is it absolute confusion or, as Lemuel suspects, merely [...]

    4. This is one of the more disliked books in Littell canon. I can see why most people who love his other books would dislike this one, and it's unfortunate. He's definitely going back to his satirical, black-comedy style like he was in "Sweet Reason" (his homage to "Catch 22", and another disliked one as well).If you loved "The Company", if you loved "The Revolutionist", you may not love this one. But I urge you to try it out, it's a short read, and quite entertaining. It has elements of Delillo's [...]

    5. Distractingly amusing, but not up to Robert Littell's usual levels of intrigue or espionage sophistication. For once, he displays himself a romantic (or at least all of his characters are). A further foible: I can't seem to place the American era in which this takes place, except to say it is post-Soviet. His American characters are at once classically American and sufficiently ageless to be caricatures themselves.

    6. I loved Littell"s The Company. And Legends, was pretty good. This book, however, was pretty bad EXCEPT for the character of Rain.
