  • I enjoyed Etgar Keret s short story collection, Suddenly, A Knock on the Door, so it was disappointing to find out The Nimrod Flip Out isn t nearly as good I really like Keret s casual use of magical realism in many of his stories My favourite one here was Fatso where a man discovers his girlfriend literally turns into a fat slob of a man at night before turning back into the woman he loves by morning Very amusing, imaginative stuff Unfortunately that s basically the only story that was any good [...]


  • after reading Right, here s the thing about short stories I just don t like them And here s why short stories like long stories are either good and you wonder why the writer didn t just keep writing because now you are really interested in these characters this scenario the voice whatever or they re not good, and you wonder why you wasted your time.I definitely put Etgar in the former category Many of these stories are really good Super good But this is the thing if Etgar can write a hundred tin [...]


  • This is most definitely a man s book The simplicity of emotion, the gentle confusion, the way things that make no sense somehow make absolute sense Keret is a gentle man His emotions, friendship, love, family, life, all effortless His writing is effortless It s witty and calm, poignant but simple, pleasurable without being overwhelming The kind of beautiful I imagine men feel when they feel the word beautiful Fear I felt the fear running through my body, from the hard part of my brain to the sof [...]

  • If you ve been friends with me on for long enough, you know that I obsess over the sheer hilarity and flippant style of Israeli writer Etgar Keret Despite suffering from what may be the most bizarre cover art in the history of literature please challenge me on this , The Nimrod Flipout is an excellent short story collection full of reality bending romps.The title story will be familiar to experienced Keret readers a bunch of young ish guys stuck in the doldrums of life, and you don t expect much [...]





  • Maybe this just got too built up for me or something, but I get it, the tone sounds flippant but it really isn t That gets kind of samey Shrug.


  • This is an utterly fantastic collection I ve long been meaning to read some Keret and am so glad that I ve finally gotten here He s capable of doing one of the most challenging things in writing with surprising ease and agility humor And not just a smile, but pure laughter, rising on accident, despite suppression and embarrassment at being in public with a bus full of people who don t speak your language.He gets there through situations It s not a single sentence that makes you laugh, not a one [...]



  • Barusan selesai baca bukunya Etgar Keret, The Nimrod Flip Out Saya suka banget sama Keret karena dia berhasil ngasih lihat kalau tulisan bagus itu enggak perlu panjang panjang Lewat cerpen cerpennya yang super pendek, Keret ngasih lihat tulisan bagus harus hemat dan efektif Kalau yang pengin diomongin bisa disampaikan lewat 500 kata, ya sudah, enggak usah dipanjang panjangin jadi 5.000 kata Tulisan panjang belum tentu berisi Sebaliknya, tulisan pendek juga kalau cara nulisnya enggak oke, enggak [...]

  • I both did and did not like this book I enjoyed it in the same way I enjoy viewing abstract avant garde art the premises and twists and turns in these short stories are so off the wall they open your mind in different directions, and that s usually a good thing However, often than not, these extremely short stories typically no than 3 pages long depend upon some perversion as their hook, which gets boring and predictable In many cases, a story starts out solidly with an almost tangible setting [...]


  • honestly, this writing style is not for everyone, but i loved his rapid fire pacing, the way he slams information into the stories line after line i even liked the freaky, surreal qualities and undeniable male dude ish perspectives reminded me of people who are good at telling stories at partiesd yes, for anyone who knows about how i spilled nyquil on this book, i did confess to the library, and they said it was ok they patted me on the back and i cried on their shoulders like a baby.



  • I reviewed this for a class I was in so I thought I d post my revieweven if it is a little to long Young Israeli men, their penises, lovers, pets, and business deals are the subjects of this collection of short and very short short stories Keret speeds through the lives of his lonely characters barely stopping for plot and refusing conclusions but making plenty of space for some phenomenally funny details of Israeli urban life His characters puke chopped liver and encounter a pest control man wh [...]


  • Within Israeli letters Etgar Keret apparently occupies a sphere of his own Kind of Raymond Carver like in not only his use of the short story but also in the somberness of tone and subject matter Keret also has definitely learned some things from the schools of magical realism and absurd fiction, and all to his benefit.Keret s stories, while not all equally brilliant are all substantive and intriguing as all hell Starting from a basic premise and giving it a simple but integral dark twist Keret [...]


  • The main plot from Tatia Rosenthal s 9.99 2008 is technically adapted from several of the short stories here I said technical because the attraction of Etgar Keret s short stories besides being ridiculously good looking for a writer is his ability to construct a fantasy that seems so palpable and possible, and as a result the film differs from it by taking another route into pure abstraction hmm, all the characters and props are the same, but somehow I feel like I m reading something completely [...]


  • Very strange but captivating stories brimming with assuredness, slyness, pessimism, and fantasy No yawners here Parents shrink in proportion to their son s growth, a man orders a talking fish at a restaurant, a man loves a woman who turns into a soccer loving guy by night I thoroughly enjoyed this collection, probably even so than a recent collection by Keret The Girl on the Fridge , which I also really liked I quite appreciated the short short ness of these stories, which I was able to read i [...]


  • Es incre ble la habilidad de keret para sacar historias de todos lados De las situaciones m s cotidianas saca fantas as que suelen ser bastante divertidas De el ser pareja, o no serlo, de los ni os, de los adultos, de todos lados parece encontrar humor y fantas as que a veces pueden ser aterradoras Pero siempre contadas con tal naturalidad que no saltan, sino que parecen hasta l gicas Porque a n cuando esta contando algo que parece no tener sentido, en el fondo parece estar d ndote un retrato de [...]


  • I read this at the same time as Aimee Bender s short story collections The Girl in the Flammable Skirt and Wilful Creatures They are both good with the surreal and accessible language but I prefer Etgar Keret s minimalist style in translation of course The stories are varied and much surprising I felt like I got Aimee Bender after a few stories and then the language themes got very predictable Not sure I need any of her books But I am still understanding Keret I want Much




  • Bilemiyorum Altan, bilemiyorum Belki de Keret in ilk d nem al malar benim i in de ildir Arada gayet g zelleri de yok de il ama genel olarak vasat bence bunlar Ama b rakmayaca m pe ini, kronolojik gitme abamdan kaynaklanan bir memnuniyetsizlik olabilir bu.


  • Not saying the book is perfect just that these are exactly the type of stories I love to read and try to tell Reminds me a lot of Paul Jennings, but for grown ups Read at Barnes and Noble over the course of several visits, knowing I d eventually just buy it anyway.
