Michael D. O'Brien is such a gifted author. When i heard he had released a new novel i wasted no time in buying it. Again i did not regret doing so. I spent the Advent season reading this book and i felt like I was in the skin of the main character, Josip Lasta. I could not put the book down; i was again so emotionally involved in one of O'Brien's main characters. I had to keep telling myself, "It's only a book". I shed so many tears I had to put the book away for a time and told myself to "forget about it". This book really helped me to prepare for the spirit of Christmas.

The Island of the World is set in the context of World War II and the entire region of Yugoslavia is torn by conflicting factions: German and Italian occupying armies, and the rebel forces that resist them--the fascist Ustashe, Serb nationalist Chetniks, and Communist Partisans. As events gather momentum, hell breaks loose, and the young and the innocent are caught in the path of great evils. The novel follows the agony and the rising of Josip Lasta, the main character. From Childhood to old age you follow Josip's life which is touched by both despair and by God's providential blessings. But the real story is Josip's spiritual journey. He has to learn to regain his faith in God, which was so strong as a child but lost as a result of the evil he encounters. We see him, through the course of the novel, struggling with anger and hatred towards the people who turned his childhood world into turmoil. The real climax is when he encounters a mysterious figure, a priest in St Peter's Square (who is really Christ) and as a result sees that God had indeed been with him even in the midst of deep evil.

Island of the World 21 janvier 2008
Par S. M. Norris - Publié sur

Michael D. O'Brien is truly a gifted writer. During the last several weeks that I spent reading this phenomonal book I felt like I was in the skin of the main character, Josip Lasta. I have rarely, if ever, been so emotionally involved in reading and had to keep telling myself, "it's only a book". I shed so many tears I had to put the book away for a time and told myself to "forgadbout it" (an expression of one of his many characters in the book).

Mr. O'Brien's descriptions of the agony and the rising of Josip Lasta are unparalleld in any book I've ever read and shows profound insight into the inner workings of his character's mind, body and spirit. This book deserves to be #1 on every bestseller list. I intend to gift several friends with a copy and to tell all the readers I know to read it.

A Powerful Read 18 juin 2008
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur

I wasn't sure what to expect from this large novel, but I didn't expect something that made me look at my own life a little closer.

O'Brien does a perfect job drawing the reader into the life of his characters. I found myself identifying with Josip Lasta even though we have very little in common. Throughout the entire novel, I couldn't wait to find out what happens to Josip next. I had to keep reading to find out if he finally achieves and keeps happiness.

The tales of life under a series of totalitarian regimes made me feel grateful for my freedoms, and reminded me to be more active in preserving them. Josip's grappling with faith was inspiring, and caused me to ponder my own spirituality at length. I tried--as best I could from a novel--to learn from how Josip interacted with the people in his life. All of it put together left me thinking, and wishing I could go right back into the book and recapture the joy of first discovery.

I highly recommend this book if you enjoy thought provoking, deep stories where the true meaning may take a bit of consideration to unearth.

Excellent! Should become a classic. I have read all of his other novels and they are also excellent. He is the greatest novelist and storyteller of our times and Josip Lasta (the main character)is an example of moral courage and character in overcoming life's trials. Should be assigned reading for all high school students.

Life-changing 14 août 2008
Par K. Thom - Publié sur

The Island of the World is so much more than a wonderful
read. It is life-changing. The story of the earthly journey
of the soul of Croatian Josip Lasta is so beautiful that
there were times I wept.

There is nothing more I can add to indicate the profound
power of this book. Read it.

The field of heaven 9 mars 2008
Par George Thatcher - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The remote, edenic Coatian village of Rajska Polja, translated, "the field of heaven," is the initial setting of a magnificent story, beginning in 1933, of one human's suffering through a violently cruel century, concluding in today's world. Beautifully written, the epic (839 pages) is the latest of six earlier books by an author who cares for his characters, experiencing their trials. It is, in a way, a modern morality play brimful of allegorical drama and poetic words, a book the reader will long remember.
