This book takes place in a remote town and mountain resort named only as W but apparently based on the actual resort of SinaiaRomania itself is located in South eastern and Central Europe North of the Balkan Peninsula on the Lower Danube within and outside the Carpathian arch bordering on the Black Sea The country shares a border with Hungary and Serbia to the west Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova to the north east and Bulgaria to the southInterestingly the oldest modern human remains in Europe were discovered in the Cave With Bones in present day Romania The remains are approximately 42000 years old and as Europe s oldest remains of Homo sapiens they may represent the first such people to have entered the continentThis is perhaps a fitting snipet of information for Little Fingers by then debut novelist Filip Florian The main premise of this work revolves around a huge pit containing a significant number of human remains found as the result of a recent excavation of a fort on the outskirts of the town Added to this premise is the strange fact that the little fingers of these skeletons appear to be missing or are going missingThis discovery acts as a catalyst to bring out a number of underlying tensions within the town and one assumes Romania as a whole Views are polarised the Chief of Police is convinced that these are proof of a recent atrocity under Communist rule the main protagonist of the novel the archaeologist Petrus whose excavation is postponed due to the discovery believes them to be the remains of plague victims and the visionary local priest links them to his visions of the Virgin Mary as a divine intervention of sortsIt must be said however that this description and that given by the publishers is in danger of painting a picture of a coherent narrative than actually exists Rather this initial scenario acts as a focal point to hang a number of very disparate and unconnected portraits of key figures within the town Petrus account probably comes nearest to a narrative account depicting his boredom at his enforced absence from the archaeological site and his blossoming relationship with a daughter of one of his Aunt s friends in the town Elsewhere in this work however things are much less structured ranging from an effectively comical account of the life of a photographers camel through to a long some might say overlong account of the history of the local priest Onufrie The arrival late on in the novel of a group of Argentinean experts intent on ascertaining if these remains really are the result of a recent governmental massacre is obviously intended to bring in a degree of political satire in relating the recent Argentinean junta to that of Romania s recent Communist past but I have to say much of this intent went over my headThat said despite the fractured narrative I did enjoy this book it was well written had some interesting characters and depicted life in post Ceau escu Romania well albeit in the confines of a small mountain resort The characters were uniformly fascinating and diverse and Florian maintained a rich vein of humour throughout British Jihadism years old and as Europe s oldest remains of Homo

Little Fingers aka Degete Mici by Filip FlorianFirst surprise trying to find this book on Goodreads was to see the variety of reactions that Degete Mici has provoked On the jacket of the book there were positive comments but that makes sense even if I think I recall seeing some authority praising the book On Goodreads I have seen ratings with two and others with 4 stars It made me uncomfortable to see a writer I like and facebook friend of mine not that this means much than nothing rating this book with only two stars Little Fingers made a strong impression on me even if I was reading under difficult circumstances and I tend to be less and less captivated by a book which is not extraordinary The first part even up to the last uarter caught my full attention After that I became distracted but that is my fault not the books The book has humor there is even a dromedary camel which proved positive emotions in me The author takes us far To Argentina no less because the plot involves a small team of Argentineans visiting the local crime scene Filip Florian is very knowledgeable and a very nice calm peaceful likeable man I saw him on TV in a talk with a critic and he emitted positive energy and he was so Buddhist like in appearance that I thought I d like to have a friend like this so talented modest warm Well I became a fan and through his book I connected somehow in an imaginary worldI enjoyed the book very much
