    1. The Nazi occupation was horrible, and then they were defeated, the Communists took over, and their rule was also horrible. There! I gave you the gist of the book, so you don't have to read the pointless story. The concept of The Fall of the Stone City is interesting. There are two doctors, both named Gurameto, in the same city of Gjirokastër. One of them gives a dinner to the Nazi officer in charge of the occupying force, and gets all the hostages set free. How and why does he does this is the [...]

    2. This brief novel by the Albanian author Ismail Kadare encompasses much about the history of the land of his birth and the rest of the world that used to be ruled by communist regimes. As with many of his other novels, the author writes succinctly and clearly, expressing feelings and ideas with skilful economy of language. In 170 pages he has expressed what many other authors would only manage in a book with at least twice as many pages.The story follows the fate of 'Big' Dr Gurameto, a senior do [...]

    3. I initially found this novel, the latest from Kadare, to be a Bridge on the Drina for the 1940s. The tics and hisses of History occur just off-camera. Barely audible. Life in the provinces continues. There is considerable traction made at the expense of the various groups within the titular town of Gjirokastër, which serves as stand-in for the Balkans as a disjointed whole. The story progresses from the Italian capitulation through the Nazi Occupation and ultimately into the postwar period wher [...]

    4. This book reminded me of Saramago's Blindness, and I really, really hated that book.I didn't hate Kadare's book, it just annoyed me from page one and had me completely uninterested in everything and everyone in it. It sounds like it should be an interesting story, but I like stories with characters in them. Not these names/representations/ideas that walk around, especially when they live in personified cities (the city was arrogant, the city felt this and that, the city complained about). Why do [...]

    5. Ismail Kadare is an Albanian author who came to the world’s attention when he won the inaugural Man Booker International Prize in 2005. Since then he has also won the highly prestigious 2009 Principe de Asturias de las Letras in Spain as well and his novels have been translated around the world. I’ve read three of his books, The Accident and The Siege (and The Palace of Dreams before I started this blog) and I have four more on the TBR so you can count me as an enthusiast. I was delighted wh [...]

    6. This book has, as contrast to my last, had mystical, magical elements that confused and bamboozled for a moment, but were easily explained and logical. This book is a story of two doctors in a large stone walled city in Albania, and mainly around a night that the Nazi's came knocking. The majority of the book is about the aftermath of this night. This involved many a story, intrigue and folklore. Unfortunately as the world moves from War to Communism, these things are less tolerated and need to [...]

    7. Set in Kadare's home town, this is a thrilling tale, enigmatic and compelling, of a secret meeting in wartime Europe that changes the political course of a great city.Many will look upon their meeting as a meeting of treason. A meeting of dining and music with the celebrated Albanian doctor and a German, is not what others would like to hear.He does have a history with the guest back to his college days when they were something else before they became what they were.The author incorporates in th [...]

    8. Evenimentele din "Cina blestemată" se derulează în Gjirokastra, un oraș-fortăreață aflat în partea de sud a Albaniei, foarte aproape de granița cu Grecia. În Gjirokastra - un oraș arogant care se consideră uneori mai deștept decât toată țara la un loc -, bârfa, discuțiile și supozițiile sunt la loc de cinste. Localnicii analizează minuțios evoluțiile pe scena politicii europene, raportând jocurile de putere la relațiile dintre doi medici ai orașului - care, fără a fi [...]

    9. Kadare writes interesting novels. This one is part fable, part history, part a commentary on the impact of successive domination of various empires who had commanded over Albania. It is also a commentary on men who use the opportunity to use their power provided by an idealogical regime as a means to demonstrate their manliness.1943, Germany invades Albania. In Gjirokaster, the invasion is met by a few shots from someone. The Germans take hostages and will kill them if the shooter(s) do not come [...]

    10. Hoe moet je dit boek nu omschrijven? Het is een vrij gruwelijk sprookje, magisch-realistisch, maar ook met feiten uit de geschiedenis van Albanië en het communistische verleden van heel Oost-Europa en de 2e wereldoorlog in Albanië. Daarnaast speelt het zich af in Gjirokaster en als je daar al eens geweest bent, herken je plaatsen in het stadje die in dit boek beschreven worden. Het verhaal loopt in een soort van merkwaardige cirkel: het verhaal eindigt deels zoals het begint, maar dan met een [...]

    11. In a non linear narrative, in a style that reminds me of our late Saramago, Kadare shows the confusion of war times and the effects multiple regimes had in the city of Gjirokastër and its people. It is also a tale of the abuses and euphoria said regimes caused and the reaping of the consequences. With a touch of mystery, this is a novel for those that wish to discover the not so visible repercussions of WWII. If you are not comfortable with a non linear narrative style you might want to skip th [...]

    12. My goal at the moment is to read more books by non-Western writers so I was delighted to come across Ann Morgan's blog 'A Year of Reading the World' recently and discover a whole list of reading options. I picked Ismail Kadare to try first as I visited Albania in July 2015 and was enchanted by this long impenetrable country and its otherworldliness. In a Europe that is increasingly becoming homogenised and gentrified, Albania stands out as a country that is rough and ready to reward pioneering t [...]

    13. I realised Ismail Kadare was a great writer when I read his novel Broken April, which tells the story of blood feuds in the mountains of Albania. I've been waiting for him to win the Nobel Prize for Literature ever since.The Fall of the Stone City is set in Gjirokastër, Albania, birthplace of both Kadare himself and the Albanian communist leader Enver Hoxha. The story starts in September 1943 as Nazi troops prepare to bombard the city. However, something stops them and it turns out that the Naz [...]

    14. Strano libro questo.Parte benissimo, con una prosa chiara e la descrizione perfetta di luogo, contesto storico e personaggi.Man mano si perde nei rivoli di una sorta di realismo magico che mi ha disorientata, e nemmeno tanto lasciata agganciata alla storia e alla lettura. La cosa interessante di questo libro per me è stato l'aspetto storico e geografico. L'Albania che storia ha avuto? Cosa sappiamo di questo popolo?Leggendo scopro che in Albania si rifugiarono ebrei ungheresi e polacchi per sfu [...]

    15. I liked this; brutal, satirical, pointed, and very political.“I don’t understand this,” said a patient on crutches. “Say it straight. What’s this new time you’re talking about?”“It’s called a new order. It’s what happens when the system changes. The first day is usually called zero hour. Then the numbering starts, one, two, three and so on. When they gave us the anaesthetic it was, let’s say, a certain time on such-and-such a day. We went under, and out of time. But time pa [...]

    16. A little masterpiece: history and fate condensed as never before. Reminds me of Marquez but stays very central European because of its humorous touch.

    17. After re-reading this novel I've come away with a totally different experience. Yes, it is a ghost story (they seem inhabit all of Kadare's novels) but it is a novel filled with terror. It begins with the Nazi occupation of Albania following Italy's defeat and early withdrawal from the war, in September 1943. The city of Gjirokastër, an ancient medieval city, is threatened with destruction when German forces are fired on as they arrive to occupy the city. The local surgeon, Big Dr Gurameto usin [...]

    18. The people of Gjirokastër spend their days speculating on the rivalry between two doctors; Big Dr Gurameto with his German connections and Little Dr Gurameto with his Italian. When, in 1943, the Nazis roll up to the city gates, a group of citizens fire upon them. Whilst the city folk fear the implications of this rebellion, Big Dr Gurameto recognises an old college friend in the Colonel and invites him and his men to dinner. Soon rumours are flying.The Albanian city of Gjirokastër is a charact [...]

    19. The Fall of the Stone City by Ismail Kadare, translated by John Hodgson In The Fall of the Stone City, Kadare blends Albanian history and fiction. It is 1943 and Mussolini has just withdrawn from Albania. Now German Commander Colonel Fritz von Schwabe enters its capitol city, Gjirokaster, from Greece. He has blanketed the town with fliers proclaiming his arrival as that of a friend of Albania but has been fired upon. No one claims credit for this, neither the Albanians nor the communists.Von Sch [...]

    20. Writing over at The Modern Novel – a blog, the author (who only appears to be identified by the initials ‘TMN’) talks at length about Kadare’s writing. He has read over twenty of Kadare’s novels including those only available in French at the moment (Kadare writes in Albanian and then the works are translated into French and then from the French into English). In the article TMN has this to say about Kadare’s book:[D]espite Canongate’s The much anticipated new novel, I doubt if The [...]

    21. I haven't read any books by Albanian writers before THE FALL OF THE STONE CITY, but I will be reading more of Ismail Kadare. This novel was a wild ride through the Nazi occupation of Albania, one fateful dinner between a doctor and his supposed long-ago university friend, and the brutal communist oppression of Albania in the 1950s. It's a slim book, 168 pages, but packed with the evocative imagery of one doctor caught in a Kafka-like web of Nazis, and then, Stalin's secret service police. One wa [...]

    22. Almost novella-like, this story is classic Kadare: surreal and irrational characters and actions are thrown together to puzzle the mind about what life really could have been like in the Balkans during WWII and in the communist era that followed it. At the same time, it feels vague and unfocused, with a lot of threads left hanging. A key scene at the beginning is being referred to over and over throughout the book, yet its significance is never fully explained. With some unnecessary tangents and [...]

    23. Kατα τυχη αυτο ηταν το δευτερο στη σειρα βιβλιο Αλβανου συγγραφεα που διαβασα αυτες τις μερες. Εχω την αισθηση απο αυτο το μικρο δειγμα των 2 μονο βιβλιων που διαβασα, οτι η γραφη των γειτονων φανταζει περιεργη στον ελληνα αναγνωστη. Δε νομιζω οτι ειναι τοσο θεμα μεταφρασης, [...]

    24. This is good. Kadare has never let me down so far. I can't say as this one left a great impression on me, as did The Pyramid. But it was certainly compelling enough while reading it. I think Kadare generally walks a remarkably fine line. So elliptical and mysterious that one might feel disappointed, after buying into the questions raised in his stories, he seems always to provide just precisely enough answers and no more. Rather extraordinary now that I think about it.

    25. Although I had heard of it, I had to look Albania up on a map as I started reading this short novel. The story of a doctor and a fateful dinner, the tale is by turns fantastical, highly political and a fable. I enjoyed the opportunity to get another perspective on the world in which we live.

    26. "Um Jantar a Mais" é a escolha de Março do projecto World Book Tour, onde o grupo viajou até à Albânia através das páginas. Tido por muitos como um dos autores que há muito já deveria ter sido consagrado com um Nobel da Literatura, Ismail Kadaré traz-nos uma obra que vinca pelos seus ideais e posições reflexivas, sob um olhar escrutinador perante a História da Europa e as repercussões tidas na Albânia, o seu país natal.Este livro é uma parábola, tragico-cómica e alegórica que [...]

    27. doctor's dinner dooms duoI wonder if Ismail Kadare is capable of writing a bad book. Mixing myth, allegory, history, and a kind of wry humor, he has produced an amazing genre over the years as yet unrewarded by the Nobel Prize committee, who often choose writers half as talented. If his work seems dark and somehow menacing, like a sudden view of an approaching storm, Albania's fate might have something to do with it. Emerging from centuries of Ottoman rule in 1912, this small country went throug [...]

    28. To me The Fall of the Stone City falls short of Kadare’s best works because it lacks focus, instead it’s a disjointed journey through certain scenes in Albanian history (mainly its occupations during World War II and the rise of Communist rule) strung together by focusing on the protagonist, an Albanian doctor named Gurametos. The Dr. Gurametos plays a pivotal role during the German occupation by hosting a dinner, which many years later leads to the doctor being investigated, and it’s thes [...]

    29. Despite the middling review, I do think this was a book worth reading. It is a novel of great ambiguity, which is central to Kadaré's themes. The boundaries between fascism and authoritarian communism are often crossed and at points meld into one. The characters do the same, presented as good, bad or both. Kadaré does some great work of weaving Albanian history and folklore into what is essentially a politcal (or social) critique while also throwing in historical facts as background and a thri [...]
