I read this book long ago, back in high school. It left a really deep mark on me, it changed the way I, a young teen, viewed the world - exactly the thing a good book is supposed to do. The author, Meša Selimović, along with Ivo Andrić, the famed Nobel Prize Winner, is one of the best 20th-century Bosnian writers. In this work he succeeded in capturing the "soul" of ordinary Bosnian folk.Selimović uses Ahmet Šabo, the novel's protagonist, to express himself about general things in life:Expe [...]

This book is phenomenal! Beautiful writing, brilliant character development, interesting story, smooth combination of philosophy and everyday life - ''The Fortress'' is one of those books you need to keep close and read random parts of it when you feel the need to be inspired. This is life in 380 pages. Just amazing! I enjoyed every word of it and will definitely buy a copy very soon and read it again.

Bolje od Dervisa, zalim sto je nisam pre procitao.

Išao sam sokacima, bez cilja, nikud, a našao se pred pocrnjelim zidovima svoje kuće, nigdje.

Why I feel compelled to include in all my 'reviews' some background on why I read a book, who recommended/gave it to me, etc: I write these primarily as an exercise/diary for my own benefit and it's nice for me to keep track of this.A couple days before I left for Europe, an old friend from high school with whom I have had only spotty contact for the last decade--Kemal--showed up at an ad hoc see-Ed-off gathering at Liquor Lyle's in Minneapolis. Kemal is Bosnian, he turned up in Minneapolis and [...]

I can't tell how this book's lines and sentences "sound" in English, but I really hope it's, as near as possible, close to original version, simply because almost every single sentence that Meša Selimović write is a little masterpiece- a message, an advice, something to hang on a wall, something to write on a piece of paper and carry in a pocket, something that you always thought of, but he said it much, much better than you ever would. It's just his unique ingeniousness."The Fortress" is full [...]

Hoće li ova moja djeca ići tim istim žalosnim putom, kad odrastu? Hoće li živjeti glupo kao i njihovi očevi? Vjerovatno hoće, ali u to neću da vjerujem. Neću da vjerujem, a ne mogu da se oslobodim strepnje.

Le recit d'une solitude ou rien ne compte que l'amour immense qui lie l'homme a une femme ou un autrehomme par les liens d'amitie ou le fragile et le precaire ne parviennent a briser l'unite de cet homme, et sa solidite. L'hymne a l'amour et a l'amitie qui sont les seules richesses que l'homme possede car ils lui donnent la force de resister a l'usure et l'a mort. Se battrre, l'ecrire aussi, dans sa solitude, sa forteresse. Le recit contre le desespoir. Lisez-le. Il est bien traduit comme la for [...]

''Kad mi je teško, bježim u samoću. Kad mi je još teže, tražim dobre ljude.''Definitely one of my favourite books ever!

Ahmet Shabo is a young man from 18th century Ottoman Bosnia, who returns to his native Sarajevo after experiencing all the horrors of war during battles in distant Russia. The war has a major psychological effect on him, and he seems unable or unwilling to rejoin the society. A kind friend offers him a decent job with which he'll be able to support himself and perhaps even advance in social circles. Things go wrong for Ahmet, however, after a party that he gets invited to thrown by some very imp [...]

Un bon roman, le résumé est un peu trompeur : on croit d'abord qu'il s'agit d'un roman policier sur l'évasion de Ramiz, en fait il s'agit d'un roman introspectif d'un homme, Ahmet, rentré de guerre, et de l'interrogation de sa conscience. Forteresse, celle de la loi du silence qu'il ne veut pas observer car il préfère être sincère, forteresse de l'amour aussi, mais lequel gagnera ? Pour ça il faut aller jusqu'à la fin. L'écoulement du temps du récit est différent de ce qu'on peut li [...]

An amazing book. Although it's set in Ottoman Empire, the plot can be applied to any time, which makes it so interesting to read. It's not an easy and fast read, you have to be patient with this book, but it's definitely worth it. I found myself reading one page over and over, trying to choose one quote to add to this review, but all thoughts were just so powerful.

Oduševljena sam načinom razmisljanja. Izvanredna knjiga.

Knjiga u kojoj su sadržane sve tajne svijeta, sva životna filozofija. Fenomenalno djelo!

Another of Selimović's masterpieces. In many ways it is a variation on the theme of Derviš i smrt, although its reputation as a great book in its own right is fully justified. Like its predecessor, it is set in medieval Bosnia, and its description of the intrigues and injustices of Ottoman rule are an allegory for Tito's Yugoslavia (although the book was never banned). The pure cynicism, unbridled greed and dark ambition of public servants in a totalitarian state is mercilessly exposed:“If t [...]

Neopisiva, neoprostiva, više nego odlična, kao i izvanredni Selimović. Jedva čekam da prođe vremena kako bih je ponovo pročitala. Strašno me zanima kako ću je doživljavati malo starija.

An amazing book. Perfectly written.

I cant believe there is an english translation

da me posjeti na domovinu.

But may God forgive you, your petty soul was none of your choosing, it was given to you. You were the last in the queue when there were no other, better ones left.

Sve mi je sto imam, i htio bih da joj to kazem, a bojim se da joj ne smetam Da nisam nasao tebe, bio bih ljut na zivot, pa ne bih imao nista, kao ni sada, ali ne bih znao sta je sreca.Moje zelje su bile maglovite i rasute, sad su sakupljene u jednom imenu, u jednom liku, stvarnijem i ljepsem od maste Nespokojan pred nesigurnoscu svega, siguran sam pred ljubavlju Zbog nje, iskljucive, i ljudi su mi postali blizi.Ne mogu da mu vjerujem, moje srce odbija njegovu beznadnu misao, protiv zivota je, i [...]

native of the former Yugoslavia, Selimovic is of Muslim descent and writes in Serbo-Croatian. Delving deep into the Bosnian past in this dense historical novel, he charts the 18th-century adventures of narrator Ahmet Shabo, who returns with a heavy heart to Sarajevo from the battle of Chocim, in Russia. Discovering that almost all of his family has died of the plague, Ahmet first works for Mula Ibrahim, a clerk he rescued in battle. The disaffected ex-soldier loses the job when he insults a powe [...]

The summary of this book in no way describes how beautiful it is. It's many stories, like fables, woven into a greater story Instead of morals, however, the stories illustrate gentle Koranic philosophy.The characters are vibrant, likeable, funny, tender.One of my favourite parts:"Man is surrounded my fear as by flame, drowned in it, as in water. He fears fate, the morrow, the law, a stronger man; and he isn't what he wants to be but what he has to be. He fawns before fate, prays to the morrow, b [...]

Do not judge this book by The Death and Dervish, this one is much easier to read and much easier to understand , maybe just because the main character also named AHMET (Nurrudin in The Death and Dervish) and Shabo in The Fortress is younger man than Nurrudin .Although they share the same name and both books are written by Meša Selimović , they are really different , you should not believe me , you should book on yourself!

comes by way of this american life 9/6/13, thisamericanlife/radio How I Got Into College, parts 2-3, by michael lewis about emir kamenica (and lauren ames) and the stories about ourselves that we tell ourselves.

One of the most beautiful books I've ever read. Great combination of philosophy and everyday life. Shows that one without another can't go. The plot is very simple, but the main focus is on characters and their fates. Selimovic is brilliant writer and as far as I am concerned this is his best book.

Wanted a book to slow my obsessional reading, so I could get on and do some work. This book worked a treat. I could barely pick it up for days on end.

Great and enchanting storytelling. Set in Bosnia some 500 years ago, but also timeless story, because not much has changed. I had pleasure reading it, it is beuatifully written.
