      Toisessa osassa on paljon sellaista mik elokuvassa vilahtaa vain ohitse Mielenkiintoinen ja ehk viel pys ytt v mpi kuin ykk sosa joten kai tuo kolmas pit samaan hy myyn lukea.

      Niiin hyv Itse pid n juuri sis llissotaa yhten kiinnostavimmista Suomen historian k nnekohdista, ja t ss se nousi hyvin esiin vaikkakin hiukan puolueellisesti Enimm kseen eritt in surullinen teos, mutta ilon hetki kin l ytyi Kolmannen osan aloitan v h n haikein mielin.

      Upea, massiivinen kirja, joka opetti minulle enemm n sis llissodasta kuin yksik n historian tunti N k kulma on tavallisen kansan, p osin punakaartilaisen ja herraa pelk m tt m n torppari Akselin, joka onkin suosikkihahmoni koko tarinassa Paljon synkempi ja raaempi kuin edellinen osa, mutta my skin hitaampi ja vaikeampi kuunnella nikirjana 4,5 t hte yl sp in py rist en.

      A historical novel that covers a bleak period in Finnish history Russia gets rid of the Tsar, Finland declares independence and at the grassroots the tenant farmers have had enough A short and brutal civil war erupts The Whites representing the gentry and farm owners , backed by Sweden and Germany, defeated the Reds the workers with few rights , backed by Russia which was wracked by its own civil war The Reds were no match and at the end of the Civil War, revenge and retribution was swift, many [...]

      The second book in the Linna s trilogy follows the course of the Finnish civil war, which raged after the Russian Revolution In Finland the Whites, backed by Sweden and Germany, defeated the Reds, backed by Russia However the story revealed in the book roots this civil war, not in national politics and ideology, but in the outraged sense of justice of ordinary people in Finland The battle cry Shoemakers advance reflects precisely the prosaic reality of ordinary people, feeling oppressed, angry, [...]

      Continue reading from the first book, I had no expectation for book two The title, The Uprising describes nothing for me, or else, it s me who cared not.As I mentioned in my review for the first book, the characters weren t capturing my interest and this could be the reason of my difficulty to continue the book in the early chapters I was pretty sure this book worthed a three star.Nonetheless, the twist, which the first book was lacked of, gave a fresh air to the story The pain of the characters [...]

      As a rule I don t like novels about war but this one showed it without pathos It was also really moving because I have got to know the characters and to like many of them and then had to see the civil war claim the lives of so many of them And even though I should be used to it by now, the cruelty of people described by Linna still shook me.

    9. Leaflet on said:

      The understated emotions of the Finns are poignant and heart wrenching It made the ending of this second volume all the moving.

    10. Jean on said:

      Slow going, but give very interesting insight into the Finnish culture.
