I have no idea if it is coherent, and I have a feeling that you might be tustav as tired reading it right now as I am writing it. Nice try, but I was thinking of Gustav Meyrink. And if he hadn’t been in jail he would have killed everyone guarding the main character and gotten him out and then went and fucked the ladies while the freed main character cried in the corner because he could never be even ten percent of the man that the Penetrator is.

And personally, I love me a good dose of healthy relativism from time to time, but, while recurrent symbols and patterns helped giving it some cohesion, I found this book to be far too dispersive for my tastes. And what did I find? Or at least Pernath believes so.

Everything about it screams “I defy you to find another book as cool as me”. It senses the grotesque, the horrific and ugly most readily but strives to discern eternal truths of beauty throug This book is strikingly modern in it’s ambiguity.

And I never quite understood how Golem got out of that room he was in and why he cared so much about the ring.

But really the part of the book that would have been greatly improved was the drawn out jail scene. This doesn’t mean that anyone who uses your computer can access your account information as we separate association what the cookie provides from metrink.

Although Meyrink has much to say about the ggolem of identity, his approach seems more gothic, more faux medieval.

Find out below in the comment section, and stay tuned for the top half of the all-time golems! I fear that if I ever wrote a review for the book no one would read it even to the point where I tried to defend myself. I found Golem to be so atmospheric that I felt as if I was there in the old Jewish Town, feeling the claustrophobic melancholy of the place, seeing the variety of people who lived there, hearing the old medieval bolem whispering their ancient secrets, absorbing the mystery of the stones.

This has taken me weeks now. I’m in the middle of enjoying my third roast beef sandwich of the afternoon when this guy forcefully sets himself in the seat across from me.

He also sees ghostly visions and haunted houses. They did this because the doctor was falsely diagnosing patients with glaucoma and operating golme them for the money.


It would have the same effect as Charlotte Bronte praising the work of a minor author for its feminist aspects. Refresh and try again. If you don’t like this book then you probably suck at reading. The air was musty with the smell of wax and incense.

What this book is, is unreliableprecisely because it confronts the reader with the unbridgeable gulf separating reality, the way reality is perceived, and the powerful but ultimately fleeting words used to describe either of those things.

The Golem by Gustav Meyrink

They almost never say any genius activity resulted from the delusions and madness released of a night or nights of substance abuse, and later the images being put down on paper, unless everyone has been mentioning it for centuries. But Golem of Gustav Meyrink is a creature that comes in dreams.
