Let's talk about a book about which to praise anyone becomes a pleonasm. The work in question entitled "O Silêncio dos Livros" deserves a different review, totally out of any conventionality.
The author Fausto Luciano Panicacci created a plot that brings interesting combinations between things that we have already read in other books and spaces for the unpublished (creative). Finding suitable words to express the meaning and value of this work is an arduous, but pleasurable task.
Due to the mysterious character found in its pages, it is advisable not to carry out a merely explanatory review, but we must bring words that represent our emotions when reading. In “O Silêncio dos Livros”, we have the perfect mix between the sensorial and the abstract.
As the girl's actions unfold, we understand what this prohibition means. At that moment, we must restrain ourselves from describing to you, the readers, who read this review the details of the events, because everything is revealed gradually. These gradual discoveries are a pleasure to read. I advance that at the beginning, we see a hideous scene, and what strikes us is the discovery of the agents of such action.
In the midst of the narrative, a new character emerges, an adult man whose life has already emerged with some mysteries. The word mystery permeates the entire plot. The key term “Investigative Process” summarizes the book's proposal well. The reader finds himself involved with curious questions that bind him to each page. We are in a situation where leaving the work is a total displeasure. Mysteries and more mysteries are emerging. Some bring their solutions in advance, others remain and there are still those that generate more mysteries.
The plot does not follow a linear script, because from the present, we go to the past, and then, we go back to the previous time to better understand what is going on. Another valuable feature of the book is the reflections that its pages provide us. The considerations given to us are not locked into the narrator's lines of thought or the actions of the characters in the books. Every reflective process has a high reach that dialogues with our real world, especially when we think about contemporary facts.
We can digress about many things as we read. If we have the opportunity to meet with other readers, the considerations become rich. The work, although set in a futuristic world, makes us aware of current issues and almost forces us to think of solutions for them.
From this comes the richness of this reading: it is not enough to know the difficulties that permeate us, it is necessary to see the solutions to put them into practice.
Indirectly or directly, this depends on the reader's point of view, the work shows that the silence of books is not limited to prohibitions, but they start from the interior of the human being. We see prohibitions on reading in some corners of the world, but we also notice that the human being already has inner prohibitions, translated by his lack of interest in reading. Today's society is already banning books from their lives when they stop reading, stop going to libraries and stop buying books. Many people already look down on regular readers with contempt, and even make fun of them. This already shows us the silence of books in a subtle way.
We could say that the work environment, although it is futuristic, is not only related to that time, but also reflects on the past and the present. In these pages of futuristic ambiance, we also find a hint of medieval thoughts. Historians will understand better what we are referring to in terms of medieval thoughts.
About the work “O Silêncio dos Livros”, there is much to talk about. But we will not extend. One of the reasons for this omission was already told at the beginning of this review. The goal is not to spoil the reader's discovery process. The other reason is that to talk about all aspects of the book, we would need many pages, or practically, to write another work with all the analysis of our reading.
This work that deserves FIVE STARS is recommended to readers hungry for an excellent book, to students of letters, especially to those who enjoy the study of Literary Theory. In “O Silêncio dos Livros”, we have a fiction with great touches of reality. The prohibitions and facts highlighted in the work are not far from our current world.
