      ForwardDictionary of the Khazars is a work of fiction written by Milorad Pavic relating to the factual khanate of the Khazars, the actual, yet debatable and certainly obscure, conversion of the Khazars to Judaism and the mysterious remnants of the Khazar civilisation ChristianityWorld religion to which the Khazars did not convert to Christian sources form one part of the potentially annoying Dictionary of the Khazars.ConversionProcess of change from one state to another typically undergone by th [...]

      Dictionary of the Khazars is a heap of a novel or, probably, even a mountain everything religion, mythology, history, mysticism, faith, beliefs and superstitions are packed in a huge pile and every reader must sort it out one s own way.Avram Brankovich s second, younger son was at the time stretched out somewhere in Bachka behind a motley stove built like a church, and he was suffering It was rud that the devil had pissed on him and that the child would get up at night, flee from the house, and [...]

      I am doing a project in which I read all 1001 of the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die as stated by a book in this stupid and arbitrary series of different stuff you have to do before you die It is dumb and I will never finish it, but now that I started, I am pretty set on continuing.The thing that makes it the most dumb is that these books are chosen by someone who has like, really different taste from me I hated Naked Lunch Now I plan to pretty much hate this book, but I guess it could a [...]

      Recommended to me after I d talked up Mark Z Danielewski s House of Leaves, this book could be, and often has been, cited as one of Danielewski s predecessors It s one of those books you could spend a whole year with, unpacking it, taking notes, analyzing and cross referencing, or you could just read and enjoy.The book is divided into three dictionaries focused around exploring The Khazar Polemic, a fictionalized account of the mass conversion of the Khazar people in which the representatives of [...]

      A bird foraging for food in the swamps and marshes sinks rapidly if it doesn t move It has to keep pulling its feet out of the mire to move on, regardless of whether it has caught something or not And the same applies to us and to our love We have to move on, we can t stay where we are, because we ll sink.This is less a novel, than shards of story reduced to a taxonomy The bird metaphor does reflect on the precariousness of the parsing Sifting through such, the reader coalesces the data, breathe [...]

      The recomendation system first brought the Dictionary of the Khazars to my attention,and for that I am glad Having been intrigued by the premise I was lucky enough to come across a cheap copy only a short while later, and it was with hope that I advanced The introduction part of the book, mind tells us that we can read in any way or order we please,I in my cowardice plumped for habit and went from front to back The book is ostensibly mainly concerned with the mass conversion of the Khazars to on [...]

      Dictionary of the Khazars by Milorad Pavic, A Lexicon Novel in 100,000 Words, is a lyrical description of the events surrounding the so called Khazar Polemic and conversion of the Khazar people Written as an encyclopedia containing cross referenced entries between three different sections Christian, Muslim, Jewish , it relates the efforts of various scholars to pin down exactly what happened at the Khazar court when the Khagan invited representatives from the three religions to hold a discussion [...]

    17. WordsBeyondBorders on said:

      Where does one start with trying to explain what the Dictionary of Khazars is about and how does one try to explain it as coherently as possible even if he makes a start at some point The novel itself is structured in such a way that it does not lend to the conventional ways of telling about it So, instead I will try to just write down my thoughts on this, however abstract they may appear I look at this novel from 3 view points, which I think as a whole enhances the impact of it.Borges wrote in [...]

    18. Harry Collier IV on said:

      Dictionary of the Khazars aims to reimagine where books stories begin and end Pavic makes no secret of his desire to allow the story to become fluid and have the reader explore that which is of interest to him since this is the female version of his book perhaps we should say that which is of interest to her.I like this idea and on previous readings of this book I have been surprised by how interesting it all was I don t believe I ever completed a whole section without skipping to another to fin [...]

    19. Paul Fulcher on said:

      A wonderful book and one I will return to with pleasure in future years.The basis for the novel is the true story of the Khazars a semi nomadic people that rapidly created a powerful empire in the 7th Century and then just as rapidly disappeared in the 10th They left behind relatively little reliable historic records, and the vacuum has been filled by myth this novel is an imaginative contribution to their reconstructured history.The centre of the novel is an event that is recorded in history al [...]

    20. Bob on said:

      The Dictionary of the Khazars is a fabulous work in the style of Borges a largely invented history though including references to real people and places with a largely invented scholarly apparatus in the footnotes and cross references to support it The formal innovation is casting it as a series of alphabetically organized encyclopedia entries, but in three parts with some entries repeated in all three but many not There are several stories told and re told in many variations and while the autho [...]

      I don t understand why finding this book on a borrowing shelf was the first I d ever heard of it It seems like something absolutely timeless and classic, and it completely floored me with its simultaneous complexity and simplicity It s written with such confidence that its unusual structure feels obvious and logical, and, whilst I m sure you could read it in all the ways the introduction suggests and get much from it, going the traditional beginning to end way does indeed also work very well I [...]

      I don t know if I am actually done or not, but this book just keeps blowing my mind Very bizarre at times but entirely fascinating I am actually reading the female edition When we read, it is not ours to absorb all that is written Our thoughts are jealous and they constantly black out the thoughts of others, for there is not room enough in us for two scents at one time Those under the sing of the Holy Trinity, a masculine sign, take in only the odd sentences of their books when they read, wherea [...]

      I really wanted to like this book because its esoteric subject sounded awesome, but honestly I knew that I was in trouble when I read the words eschewing conventional narrative and plot on the back cover I m pretty fond of conventional narrative and plot, actually They ve been working pretty well for storytelling for quite a while now, and they re good enough for me I just couldn t get through it The narration really was all over the place and my inability to tie the threads together put me off [...]
