    A highly allegorical but at the same time viscerally disturbing novel by Iván Repila translated into English by Sophie Hug

    This book disturbed me far than I thought it would The plot in itself is not a happy one two children brothers named Big and Small are down a well Why are they there? Who did this? What happened? These are uestions that the author gives hints at but isn't the meat of the fable The narrative is moved forward by their increasing desperation to survive and the pitiful acts they must commit Everything is exaggerated and described in

    almost disturbing than the pervasive darkness of this book are the small glimpses of lucidity that appear apparently at random like the clouds opening for a moment to let a hot burning ray of sunlight through and then closing again forever

    A short allegorical novel which could be described as magical realist or as a modern fable Clear precise language and intense vivid descriptions with very spare and compelling language On first reading one breezes through the book in a very short time ideas of revolution rebellion independence creativity social ineuality oppression and freedom are clear but the text begs to be reread to explore and refine on

'It looks impossible to get out' he says And also 'But we'll get out'Two brothers Big and Small are trapped at the bottom of a well They have no food and little chan. Note This review is in English and in Dutch Nederlandse lezers scroll omlaag voor de Nederlandse recensie Good things come in small packages or in this case thin books can tell impressive stories That this book surprised me is an understatement the story stayed on my mind for several days and during that time I reread the book a couple of times to get a better grasp of its message I m still undecided but that s immediately one of the strongest points of this book it s open to multiple interpretations and you as the reader can decide for yourself which is the real oneBut I m going too fast The Boy who Stole Attila s Horse is at its very foundation the tale of two brothers Big and Small who are trapped in a well We don t get to know their real names or how they got in the well and why because the book s title is not the answer to that uestion The boys whom I picture are around 11 and 7 years old both soon realize that the situation is hopeless and try to deal with it in their own way Big keeps thinking of an escape plan and exercises to keep himself strong but Small uickly falls prey to fever and descends into madness Soon he starts holding lengthy orations about the human race the fine taste of worms or the outside world As the clocks ticks and the amount of water and insects shrinks tensions inside the well grow Will Big succeedRepila s writing style is unlike anything I have read before His prose is precise beautiful and detached He balances harsh words that tell us exactly how famine and the heat affect the brother s relationship and their sanity with humoristic descriptions of the brother s attempts to keep themselves healthy The narrative often changes from the boys in the well to the humans living in the outside world who in some way suffer in the same way as the boys This makes the story read like a dark fairy tale where allegories and realism tell a story about survival sibling rivalry and how rage can keep you alive The first time I read the book I didn t pay much attention to the allegories which are most present in Small s ramblings The suffering of the brothers and Big s escape plan for Small were heart breaking and powerful enough for that I already give the book three starsHowever it wasn t until another reviewer pointed it out to me that I noticed the two political economical uotes from Bertolt Brecht and Margaret Thatcher that are printed at the beginning of this novel Thatcher s uote drew my attention She tells us that under capitalism poor people are not poor because others are rich if others became less rich the poor would in all probability still become poorerThose uotes shone a whole new light on the novel which immediately made me reread it with a open mind and now I discovered the multiple layers hidden in Repila s book For example this conversation between the brothers about life outside the well made a lot sense They needed space up there Big answers whenever Small asks why they live in such a rotten place Are there many of them up there No very few of them So above is small No It s very big I don t understand Up there is where they hold the power Big Once we are up there we ll throw a party A party Yes The kind with balloons and lights and cakes No The kind with rocks torches and gallows But although the story could be about the unfair treatment of developed and undeveloped countries it can also be read as a metaphor for children growing into adulthood in which the well stands for a womb as a long rage against injustice see Brecht s uote for this or to show the strength of the human mind in times of survival One thing that I want to mention is the hidden mathematical twist to the story I d like to thank Goodreader Tonymess for this who pointed out that the chapters are numbered as the primes beginning with 0 2 3 5 7 Further during one of his feverish ramblings Small says that every number could correspond to a word and that one day he would be capable of expressing himself only through numbers Later he whispers to Big Forty three Forty one Seventy one Twenty three Thirteen Twenty nine Eleven Eighty three Two Sixty seven Again thanks to Tonymess I found out how to decode the numbers and discovered the hidden message which refers to the theme of rage and to an important promise between the metaphorical brothers Amazingly enough this code also works in my Dutch translation so my compliments go to translator Irene van der Mheen view spoiler How to decode the message look up the xth word of the xth chapter At the end you ll get the sentence Rescue him from the well in anger back to life hide spoiler
