    One thought on “The Door in the Wall

    1. Mümin

      Tam olarak beklediğim tadı alamasam da ilginç öyküler bulunuyor kitapta. Özellikle "Kristal Yumurta" adlı öyküyü beğendim. Diğerleri de kurgusal olarak olmasa bile imgesel olarak oldukça etkileyici . "Duvardaki Kapı" bu anlamda epey güçlü. "Sihirli Dükkan" ise anlatımıyla eğlenceli bir öykü vaat ediyor. Üç yıldız mı versem, dört yıldız mı derken yazıldığı tarihi göz önünde bulundurup torpil geçtim. Kısacası okumanızı tavsiye edeceğim kısa bir kitap.

    2. Kandice

      This book was written with clear talent. The story is unraveled in a very entertaining way, but when we finally get the whole tale it turns out to be pretty blah. One star for story, five stars for style, for an average of three.So what?

      Borges'in Babil Kitaplığına dahil olan Wells'in bu kitabındaki 5 öykünün hepsi birbirinden güzel ve eminim bir çok çağdaş esere esin periliği yapmış. Elimden bırakamadan hızla okudum. Örneğin birinci öykü Duvardaki Kapı, Narnia Günlükleri'ne kapı açmış bence hatta bazı maceraları Wells'in öyküsünün bir devamı niteliğinde. Plattner Hikayesi ile Son Mr. Elvesham'ın Hikayesi en etkileyenler oldu. En çok da Wells'in üslubu, şahit olduğu inanılmaz olayları b [...]

      A man of worldly affairs recently deceased had told his friend a most extraordinary tale just before his death. All his life he had seen glimpses of, and once as a young child entered into, a strange green door.The door opened into a lush garden, 'into peace, into delight, into a beauty beyond dreaming, a kindness no man on earth can know', inhabited by playful children, friendly animals and a lady with a magical picture book.Straight forward, sweetly told short story from Wells about the disenc [...]

      Interesante. Este relato breve vino en un libro que incluía El País de los Ciegos. La verdad es que tiene un poder insondable en cuanto a lo ineluctable del destino. Es la narración de una persona por parte de su mejor amigo, el cual desde pequeño imagina una puerta, a la que entra y se halla dentro de un enorme jardín. La persona pasa toda su vida buscando indicios de la existencia de la puerta, hasta que por cuestiones diversas de la vida, la encuentra como 4 veces sin embargo, el destino [...]

      (Original review date: 3 May 2014)I bought this collection on a whim a couple of years ago, and it languished on my shelf, unread. I had tried reading Wells before, back in college,War of the Worlds andThe Time Machine, and was fairly unimpressed. His language was stuffy and old-fashioned, I thought, and his allegories tortured. So even though I like short stories as a form, I really wasn't expecting much when I picked this up.I love being wrong in that way. It's one of my favorite things about [...]

      H.G. Wells is known as the father of Modern Science Fiction and is best known for his science fiction fantasies like The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man it's only recently I realised that some of his short fiction, although less known, are equally great.The Door in the Wall will probably be considered as one of his fantastic tales, I personally feel there's more to it. The story is a vague recollection by a man in his forties, a successful British politician, of an experie [...]

      S obzirom da SciFi definitivno nije moj žanr, ove kratke pričice sa jakom Twilight zone atmosferom su verovatno početak i kraj onoga što bih ja mogla da svarim.Da se podsetimo:Ordinary people find themselves in extraordinarily astounding situations, which they each try to solve in a remarkable manner. Nije da nisam pokušala ( ponela sam i Stanislava Lema, pao mi šećer posle dve stranice).Prijatno čitanje na moru, solidne ideje , možda ponešto slabija realizacija.Vrata u zidu je istovre [...]

      Olağanüstü, sihirli hikayelerin anlatıldığı bir kitaptı. Bir kristal taşın içinden gözetlenen Marslılar, genç insanların bedenlerini ele geçirerek ölümsüz olmaya çalışan bir filozof, hakiki bir sihirli dükkana giren baba ve oğlun yaşadıkları ürpertici oyunlar. Monoton hikayelerden sıkıldıysanız Babil kitaplığı farklılık arayışınız için bire bir.

      It is difficult, as a reader, not to feel influenced by the doubts and mistrust that Redmond openly expresses about the story and the protagonist at the beginning and at the end of the story. Since Redmond is the narrator, we have nothing but to trust on his words. The story is an allegory about the conflict of humankind with themselves and society while repressing their dreams or natural feelings in order to fulfill the expectations of the society. The presence of the door during different peri [...]

      Una historia sencilla y amena de leer. Me ha gustado y ha despertado ternura y tristeza. Es un cuento breve narrado por el amigo del protagonista, en donde se mezcla su recuerdo y la historia en primera persona.Si bien es fantasía lo que en estas páginas se relata, aún así nos lleva a reflexionar sobre las cosas que perdermos por hacer lo correcto socialmente.Si les gusta este tipo de relatos no olviden darle una oportunidad

      Sihirli dukkan haricindeki tum hikayeleri dikkat cekici ve akici buldum. Duvardaki kapi oykusu the lost room'u hatirlatti. Derinligi hosuma gitti. Renkli tozlarla baska evrene ve baska bedene gecme hikayeleri keyifliydi. Kure hikayesi de fena degildi.

      3 short stories: The Door In The Wall, The Sea Raiders and The Moth. All are mysterious and suspenseful and in a handy edition for a train ride when you don't want to carry a big book with you.

      La experiencia de Wallace (el protagonista de la historia) es más común de lo que creemos en nuestros días. Solemos hacer cosas y funcionar en torno a ellas, pero, muchas veces, al final del día nos preguntamos si lo que hacemos es lo que imaginamos que haríamos cuando niños. Hay una puerta en el muro para cada uno, algunos hemos pasado por alto muchas veces, incluso pensando que nunca volveremos a ver ese jardín al que le llamábamos "concretar tus sueños".Queda la pregunta, ¿qué hare [...]

      — Ты когда-нибудь играл со мной в «северо-западный проход»? Нет, в то время мы не были в дружбе с тобой. Это была такая игра, продолжал он, в которую каждый ребенок, наделенный живым воображением, готов играть целые дни напролет. Требовалось отыскать «северо-западный проход» [...]

      I adored this story, and wrote a lengthy review of it here. But lost the text when I tried to submit. I don't have the heart to rewrite the whole thing. But I highly recommend this story. The voice and tone are both a bit dated, but otherwise this strikes me as an allegory about death that easily stands the test of time and transcends any particular "religious" view about that 'borne' from which no traveller returns For the era in which it was written, this religiously-neutral (mostly) aspect o [...]

      I read The Door In The Wall, a short story written by H.G Wells. The narrating style is the story within a story. I think this short story has so many symbolic meaning. So many metaphor. The door itself could be the entrance between reality and fantasy. It is also related to Wallace’s lonely life. In reality, Wallace is bullied. The world behind the door is his way to escape reality. I really like this story, especially the ending. read more: readingwonderland.tumblr

      A collection of stories by one of the founders and masters of the genre. It's these 8 stories that give a creative and whimsical glimpse into what Science Fiction was like half a century ago.The title story is my favorite - The Door in the Wall. It's a metaphor for missed choices and how following your dreams should be a mission, not a wish. I thought about this lesson for a long time after reading. It made me more vigilant about looking for those doors I normally pass.

      Bu serideki hiçbir kitabı bir diğerine değişemiyorum. Kitaplar ve yazarlar değil de öyküler üzerinden oluyor değerlendirmem, hepsinin ayrı bir tadı var, bu nedenle sanırım en sonunda tüm seriye verdiğim yıldız sayısını 3'ten 4'e çıkartacağım.

    21. Brian Harmon

      I just read this collection of short stories by HG Wells. His imagination and ability to evoke images in the mind, never cease to amaze me. The stories have many different tones, some rather dark, but all very engrossing. it's a quick read, but does not lack in depth. I heartily recommend!!

    22. Sara

      A young boys goes through a door in the wall, and discovered paradise. Thoughout his life, the memory of this garden has haunted him and he strives to find it one last time. I liked this because it was a bit dark.

    23. Annie

      It’s very Poe-ish. Very different voice from the Wells of Dr Moreau/Invisible Man/Time Machine/etc. Dreamy and dreadful (as in “full of dread”) with heavy ironic Christian imagery.

    24. Bettie☯

      Enchanted gardens with spotted panthers - that'll do me. A short story, very short indeed but good and thought-provoking.

    25. Irene

      I love it how someone can write stories short but so deep in its meaning. It's an adorable talent. This story is about second chance, third, fourth, and several more chances that are wasted away to escape from this dull world and to enter into an utopian world, a heavenly garden. Wasted because the person is busy tied up in his present world, the world which he actually does not enjoy living in, and that he has, ever since his first visit to the garden, been dreaming of going back to it. But aga [...]

      The door in the wall is a short volume collection three short stories by H.G. Wells. These are "The door in the wall", "The Sea Raiders", and "The Moth". Of the stories in this volume, I enjoyed "The door in the wall" the most. I loved the sense of lost opertunity, the question if it was real, the commentary on the way the preasure of adulthood and life and achievement robs us of the simple pleasure of existing. "The Sea Raiders" is a more typical story from the sea monster genre - featuing a ma [...]

    27. Lorena

      This was such an interesting tale! It reminded me, in style, a bit of Frankenstein. The words were beautiful, and the idea of someone traveling to a holding place beyond this life that is peaceful for humans and animals, where someone has complete joy and access to a book that has in it a record of one's life is very intriguing. The world sounded to me like an inbetween state (after death, not quite entered into the presence of the Father). I thought the book was a bit repetitive in the middle. [...]

      Everyone has vague memories or lost moments from their childhood. This short story explores both the danger and excitement in chasing them down later on in life. Would things be as we remember? Have they changed as drastically as we have? What if there was a perfect and peaceful garden you remember visiting as a carefree, wide-eyed youngster? What if you tried to go there as a serious, responsibility-having adult? A beautifully-written, evocative tale about time.
