Pidän Solnitin tekstistä ja Satu Paavola oli erinomainen valinta lukijaksi. Kuuntelin tämän välipalana enkä keskittynyt mitenkään erityisesti, joten kuten tavallista, en muista sisällöstä paljoakaan. Kuuntelen esseitä tajunnanvirtana joka tulee ja menee kuin ajatus, usein jättämättä juuri muistijälkiä. Voin siis kuunntella niitä aina uudelleen. ( )

Flowery and erudite in a way I found totally palatable, though there were a couple essays that didn't feel quite as strong. Mostly, though, this collection was pretty resonant. ( )

I am not sure why I had this book in my reading list. I must have read a review somewhere and added it without much thought. Then, I sometimes feel I should rest from fiction and should include the odd non-fiction book in my reading – like sorbet to cleanse the palate.

So I didn't know what to expect from these essays. I guess I anticipated something in the lines of Joan Didion or Anna Quindlen, essays grounded in journalism and social critique. But Rebecca Solnit delivered something new. It is not that Didion and Quindlen don’t add a very personal perspective and expand their subjects into the philosophical sphere, they do. Yet Rebecca Solnit brings a metaphysical quality to her essays that I have not encountered before.

Other reviewers mention the rambling characteristics of her writing. Some liked and some disliked it, but it worked for me. I felt at times led through a maze of thoughts and images without a true notion of the destination, but the whole path was interesting, full of stories and questionings, painted with dabs of erudition and sensitivity, and most definitely worth of the journey.

I also wanted to mention an instant of serendipity while I was reading it. I just happened to browse a list of “best fiction of 2014” where it mentioned [b:The Moor's Account|20262502|The Moor's Account|Laila Lalami|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1395943524s/20262502.jpg|28096057], a book about the saga of Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca, which I never heard of before but decided I should try and read it (full confession, it was the name “Cabeza de Vaca” or “Cow’s Head” that I found the most intriguing). Then, not even a couple of hours after I added it to my to read list, I read about Cabeza de Vaca in one of Solnit’s essays. Some will consider it not much more than coincidence, and problably it is, but I am nevertheless surprised enough when these coincidences happen to question if they carry a bigger meaning. If life and books are leading me somewhere…

I am sorry for the diversion, but somehow I felt it reflected the reading experience of reading Rebecca Solnit’s essays: This feeling of being lead along to some greater meaning, even if it is a bit beyond my reach.

Unfortunately, I had to take a long break when I was about a quarter of the way through the book, so that disrupted my processing and enjoyment of the book. But, that being said, I did enjoy reading it. Even though it sometimes seemed to jump around from one thought to another, and even though there were things that I didn't quite agree with or fully follow, what I did quite like about the book is that it caused me to want to think more. And more than that, I felt encouraged to try and think differently about the world and things that happened to me and around me in ways I might not normally. I think in the future I'd like to either revisit this book, or many try another of this author's works. ( )
