The brooding, bold and brilliant first novel from the Man Booker- and Bailey's Prize-shortlisted author of A Little Life.
In 1950, a young doctor called Norton Perina signs on with the anthropologist Paul Tallent for an expedition to the remote Micronesian island of Ivu'ivu in search of a rumoured lost tribe. They succeed, finding not only that tribe but also a group of forest dwellers they dub 'The Dreamers', who turn out to be fantastically long-lived but progressively more senile. Perina suspects the source of their longevity is a hard-to-find turtle; unable to resist the possibility of eternal life, he kills one and smuggles some meat back to the States. He scientifically proves his thesis, earning worldwide fame and the Nobel Prize, but he soon discovers that its miraculous property comes at a terrible price…

The ending somehow makes me sad!

👎Možete propustiti

Чёт хз, очень странные впечатления от книги. Не понравилось описание джунглей, большинство героев довольно плоские

Like most children, we assumed all adults were naturally imbued with a sense of intimidation, of authority.
to fear death, you must first have something to tether you to life
(Our mother’s sight was fine, but she often behaved as a blind person would; she moved through the world as a sleepwalker.)
