Milorad Pavic: The Star Mantle

To create some mystic air of the Summer Solstice I have chosen the novel “The Star Mantle” (2000) which Milorad Pavic presented as a brief astrological reference for whose who are unfamiliar with it. I remember when I was choosing this book in the shop, I was attracted with a chance to learn more about the Astrology…Nevertheless, Milorad turned out to be more cunning: his book is a real novel about inter-astrological relationship.

You already know my favourite writer: no book of his is ordinary or similar to the previous one. In fact, they cannot be compared with anything at all. So, “The Stat Mantle” can be read as a complete novel, as a set of stories or as a single story…No matter the style of your reading you will be satisfied. Milorad offers us following astrological love combinations: Leo & Cancer, Scorpio & Aquarius, Aries & Capricorn, Sagittarius & Piscis, Virgo & Gemini, Taurus & Libra. As a bonus you get a chance to invert your own end of the novel…

And finally the quote welcoming a new Reader at the very first page: “You must discover your own Past in time as it also has the expiration date, so it can expire…”😎😋

  2. Super description of the book, Maria. As a Gemini, I can’t say I have known any Virgos, but I will keep my eyes open. 😁
