      Re read 29 Jan 2012This book is the Princess Diana of precious literature A dainty little princess, frangible, kind hearted, captivating but ultimately hollow and deeply uninteresting Imagine taking Diana out for dinner She would present herself at your door in a bone hugging black dress, holding out a dainty hand as you guide her into the limo You fear too much pressure on her fingers might splinter the bones below, so you tweezer grip her pinkie, place a gentle thumbnail on her waist to help [...]

      Someone dead and marginally famous once said, The surest form of flattery is to take your favorite book by an author and scissor it to shreds, until the resulting carnage forms an elaborate meshing of brittle die cuts that, if carefully fingered through, convey in amputated words, phrases and punctuation, something like a prose poem And that s exactly what happened to Bruno Schulz s collection of short stories, Street of Crocodiles, when pseudo literary savant Jonathan Safran Foer famous for his [...]

      I skimmed several dozen reviews of this book and it would seem this book is incredibly divisive, in a way You either seriously despise this book as pretentious and gimmicky and pomo which I think are the three most used words in the hater reviews or you think it is brilliant Usually the battle lines are drawn in terms of whether you hate or love Foer s work I have to say I did not want to read it because I have not been able to finish either of Foer s wildly popular novels, so that makes me not [...]

      I emailed Karen to put a copy of this book aside for me yesterday For whatever reason that didn t work out because the first floor felt the need to steal every copy, so when I went in greg told me that I could get a copy on the first floor Anyway, I was up on the 4th floor picking up the books I needed to buy, such as Steve Lowe s book, last year s best European, and sadly Kirk Jones book hadn t made it in yet Anyway after I finished advertising for the bizarre authors I went to the first floor [...]

      Update Re read this piece after reading the original piece that it s based off of, Bruno Schulz s Street of Crocodiles, and love it all the He has created a piece of art separate from the original work, while keeping Schulz s beauty in words and phrases I would highly recommend giving Street of Crocodiles a read and then re reading this piece, since it gives you a complete appreciation of the work I love how the Mother is a ephemeral figure in this book, while in Street of Crocodiles it was t [...]

    7. Michael Bohli on said:

      Ist Tree Of Codes noch ein Buch, oder sind wir hier bereits in einer anderen Form der Kunst gelandet Denn Autor Jonathan Safran Foer hat sich hierf r nicht eine komplett eigene Geschichte ausgedacht, er hat dieses Buch aus der Erz hlung The Streets Of Crocodiles von Bruno Schulz herausgeschnitten Und genauso darf man diesen herausgefilterten Text auch lesen Denn das Buch besteht vor allem aus L chern in den Seiten, nur wenige W rter sind noch im Gerippe vorhanden ein wahres Fest f r B cherfreund [...]

      I ve had Tree of Codes on my night stand for about two months There s a coffee mug stain on the cover it s very faint but raised and I no longer recall if it came with the book It suits it nonetheless Let me start with my first impressions The copyright page explains succinctly the method that Safran Foer used to create Tree of Codes from Bruno Schulz s The Street of Crocodiles if you haven t read this, do so without further delay It does not mention to my disappointment which translation was us [...]

    9. Lydia on said:

      You could call this book pretentious and gimmicky You wouldn t necessarily be wrong.I really enjoyed it.I need to re read it a few times now.

    10. Alexandra on said:

      If there were lots of other books made in the same way, I m not sure that Tree of Codes would have had the same impact its uniqueness is undoubtedly part of its appeal I admit I bought it mainly because of its novelty value, and because I d been given book vouchers I m a poor student, and don t usually have a spare 25 to spend on a 134 page paperback Anyway, I ve been showing it to friends whenever they ve been in my room, and the general consensus is, Ooh, this is cool , but today I finally sto [...]

    11. Derek Emerson on said:

      Jonathan Safran Foer s novel, Tree of Codes, is an unusual work As opposed to creating a novel from scratch, Foer takes his favorite book, The Street of Crocodiles by the Polish Jewish writer, Bruno Schulz, and cuts away that text to create a new novel.It is a unique idea and raises the philosophical questions of what makes a novel, what is authorship, and even what is morally acceptable in taking work from others Foer gives no authorial credit to Schulz, presumably because he sees this as his o [...]

      Where to begin Well, I ve only just finished my first read through, and I m sure there will be it takes only 30 minutes start to finish , so my thoughts are sort of an initial reaction I have loved Jonathan Safran Foer s work, so my expectations for this were very high The physical book is beautiful The cut out pages create a collage of type that simultaneously drew me in and made me feel I wasn t quite smart enough to know how to read it I figured out that you have to lift each page as you rea [...]

    14. Katie Parker on said:

      The book is of a structural piece of art than a piece of fiction Die cut from Bruno Schulz s Street of Crocodiles, Foer came up with a completely different story from the original work And that story was actually rather hard for me to follow They way the words were chosen and strung together, I felt like I was reading especially eloquent magnetic poetry That s not to say that it wasn t good, but the actual plot is just a little difficult to make sense of due to the highly poetic feel Only a few [...]

    15. Anna on said:

      I mainly give Tree of Codes this middle of the road rating, not as a testament to the book which I feel might actually be too personal of a reading experience to really rate and explain why to others but because I feel that it requires time, rereading, before I can give it a really thoughtful star or two, one way or the other It took me about as long to figure out how to read the story as it did for me to actually read the story somewhat of a unique experience, but one that I find is actually [...]

    16. Charlotte on said:

      This was a fascinating read Not only is the work original physically, but what s written inside is just spectacular Every word was so carefully chosen to create this story And from every individual sentence such powerful images and ideas came to mind It was incredible This is not only a literary piece, it s also a work of art.While reading I took notes of the phrases and sentences that spoke to me, or were just beautifully phrased.This is a definite must read You will learn to appreciate literat [...]

    17. Hanaa on said:

      This is a masterpiece in so many ways To take one s favorite book and make physical art out of it is such a beautiful thing The language of the original Street of Crocodiles is the most poetic and beautiful thing ever, and this book Tree of Codes is the most beautiful book physically I have ever come across to make art out of punctuation and random words is just mind blowing.

      precitane, hned dvakrat A ja v podstate neviem o com ta kniha je, unikol mi pri tomto spracovani celok, bolo tam vsak niekolko myslienok, ktore ma chytili a prinutili na chvilu sa zamysliet Necakany a neopakovatelny citatelsky zazitok

    19. Mcecilia on said:

      la verit che questo libro non lo legger mai, almeno finch non me ne regaleranno una seconda copia da maneggiare con meno cura, visto che questo lo tengo in teca come oggetto d arte.

      I have not decided what is getting kicked off the top ten list but something is definitely getting kicked off the list after reading this, this, amazing thing Book is not a word appropriate enough.It can t be described except to call it a literal work of art, not like the writing is so beautiful it reminds one of fine art No it is actually an art piece, something to be appreciated over and over again, Die Cuts I believe this is what this type of book is called is a foreign concept to me, and it [...]

    21. ✰☽✰RaeleighReads✰☾✰ on said:

      Reality is as thin as paper Only the small section immediately before us is able to endure It feels wrong somehow to give this book a rating It is highly conceptual a narrative derived from removing parts of another work Safran Foer achieved this surreal and architectural feat by erasing chunks from his favorite book, The Street of Crocodiles by Bruno Schulz Literally whole chunks are missing from the work so that when you look at the first page you can see bits and pieces of the rest of the wor [...]

      This book was so fun to read And I really enjoyed the story as well Definitely recommend this to everyone

    23. Allie on said:

      This book is so extraordinary The story itself is haunting, and the book is a really beautiful and precious object.

    24. Myra on said:

      such a strange and wonderful reading experience This is a book made from another book Each sentence is die cut from the pages of The Street of Crocodiles by Bruno Schulz It feels like a thousand butterflies just burst into my face, some beautiful, some razorsharp and I am left with meaning than understanding I am on my way to see a ballet based on this book performed by the Paris Opera Ballet with stage design by Olafur Eliasson I am glad that I had the chance to read Tree of Codes first and ga [...]

    25. Nate on said:

      The physical book gets a very solid 5 stars The prose within that physical book gets a very low 1 star Utter garbage Law of averages give this book 3 stars even though it does not deserve them.

    26. Cintia Andrade on said:

      How do you begin to talk about a book whose creative process is in fact a process of erasure I have always been curious about Tree of codes because Jonathan Safran Foer is my literary equivalent of Kurt Cobain and I have a ridiculous literary crush on him and maybe it isn t just a literary crush.At the same time, I doubted the power of a work of literature whose words were not the author s own, but rather borrowed and rearranged ones It only took a couple of pages, however, for Safran Foer to co [...]

      Mashup A Musical JokeAlone in my room on a winter evening a half decade ago or so, I first heard the music genre titled mashup The band, Girl Talk, sampled multiple songs and layered them into a complex and new composition While enjoyable, mashup never entered the realm of my favorite music In my opinion, the genre feels too gimmicky I am certain if I were to go clubbing, I would prefer the stylings of mashup to provide the rhythm to my dancing.But I don t dance I don t club On the whole, then, [...]

    28. Nicola on said:

      It feels fateful that I received this book as a gift on the same week that I finally moved Mark Z Danielewski s Only Revolutions off my to read shelf and onto my GTFO of my life shelf , deciding that I am not the type of person who can be bothered wrangling meaning from an epic, free verse poem written from two contradictory perspectives about a time traveller.Jonathan Safran Foer s Tree of Codes is similarly gimmicky Foer has cut extraneous material out of his favourite book, Bruno Schulz s The [...]

    29. Sara on said:

      It s very hard to rate this book It took about an hour to finish it and it was worth getting it from the library instead of pumping out all that money to buy my own copy, though i wouldn t mind having it in my bookshelf, but there s rarely any book i would mind having there Basically the story is hollow and boring and not really that interesting I guess that it s a lot better if you ve read the original text Street of Crocodiles and then read this and compared the two or something Maybe it s wor [...]

      I m not giving the book a rating because I didn t read the whole thing, but I wanted to talk about the 30 or so pages I did read, maybe give some curious people a general idea of the book.There s no denying this book looks awesome It is definitely a work of art just in the mere printing, cutting words out of the pages, leaving holes and producing pages with less than ten or so words It s cool to look at and touch The concept isn t new though Collage, in the sense of repurposing art, has seen thi [...]
