It is the first book I read from this Romanian writer and I believe she got talent. Unfortunately this was the first novel she could publish before communism era.
After she had to change her style and adapt to the new regime. I am sure that if Romania would have stayed a free country she would produce more masterpieces in this genre. I liked most from this novel the fact that I could peak into Romania between the two world wars, see I really enjoyed this interesting novel from Cella Serghi.
I liked most from this novel the fact that I could peak into Romania between the two world wars, see how the society was structured at that time. Also the book shows a glimpse into Balcic, a sea-side resort now in Bulgaria. Dec 23, Cati rated it it was amazing. One of my favorite books! Jul 08, O rated it liked it. Well , overall , it was a good book. Kind of easy-reading and chick-lit-ish, but it did have some very veyr nice parts.
Description of Mangalia in Diana's point of view has something almost magical in it, and the sadness floating over the whole novel has its special kind of beauty.
Gave it a three-star though simply because i think that this story could have been a little bit more and it cannot be compared with the Great Literature. May 01, Avram Cristina rated it it was amazing Shelves: preferred. A marathon was this book. I could not stop reading.
Cella Sergei has a style of storytelling that does not let you leave the book in hand. Diana impressed me by her inner conflict, turmoil in her pursuit of happiness, justice, and also her father's portrait on the edge of comic and tragic dignity that still inspires earnest until the end of the novel. I really hope that same day this will be made a movie. Oct 30, Andres Andres added it. This is tyhe book of october on www. It's like I would've liked more of ilinca's toughts Anyway, it's a great and kind of sad story I often found myself in diana's thoughts, even if sometimes i didn't like her or i didn't agree with her choises.
Also, i loved the ending, unexpected but peaceful. Apr 14, Madalina Ion rated it it was amazing. Favourite romanian book of all times! You can feel and imagine the fresh spirit of Diana, the principal character and even smell the sea, omnipresent trough the reading. Mar 04, Alexandra Largu rated it really liked it. Such a delicate book, normalizing female vulnerability and female strength in a time when men were the relevant voices in society and women were decorative objects they took prinde in possessing.
Aug 14, Magda rated it really liked it. The charming account of becoming an accomplished young woman in spite of poverty, constant relocation and struggles to maintain appearence.
Inspired by the author's own life, it is real proof that the early years of one's life influences the way it is perceived later on, and the decision making process. The title of the book refers to the main character's destiny, which she perceives as unescapable, and sees herself as an insect stuck on the spiderweb and can never escape it.
The portrait of the m The charming account of becoming an accomplished young woman in spite of poverty, constant relocation and struggles to maintain appearence. The portrait of the main character, Diana Slavu, is built up through the contrast between how her best friend Ilinca sees her and her own account of how she really feels and the motives behind her actions.
The book is worth a read for the captivating descriptions of Mangalia and Balcic in the ss, when they were still just charming little villages, the locations of the two great romances of her youth. Jan 31, Miriam Cihodariu rated it really liked it Shelves: romania. This is like a really bad book, the equivalent of a soap opera in writing, but I really liked it, I swear to god, I'm sorry but couldn't help it.
I first started reading it out of boredom, while on a seaside vacation with nothing better to read, and then discovered that sentimental as it is, I can't help but resonate with part of the coming-of-age feelings described there. Maybe the location I was in contributed at well, since a huge part of the story takes place in seaside locations as well. An This is like a really bad book, the equivalent of a soap opera in writing, but I really liked it, I swear to god, I'm sorry but couldn't help it.
Anyway, enough excuses, I liked this book and I'm standing by it. Jan 27, Andrei rated it it was amazing Shelves: exquisite. A genuine romance novel about the struggles of a woman to find his true love. It has a good deal of lyricism without falling into bad taste. I learnt that it's not somebody you love, but something [still undefined] that you love in everybody. I always admire that lucid eye that can capture its becoming, that witness present in each of us eager to escape the spider web.
And you cannot forget the magic realm of Balcic and Mangalia Jul 03, Claudia BC marked it as to-read. Because I've heard only good things about this book and because next month I'll be in Balchik for the second time, third time in Bulgaria actually :D. However, it will go very well with the destination. Mar 11, Alta added it. Read about 30 years ago in Romanian. Sep 26, Diana added it.
Boring book, didn't like it at all. Nov 10, Ana Maria rated it really liked it. One of my favorite books, if not for the story itself then definitely for the writing style. Sad story, but very close to what life can feel like sometimes.
Nov 24, Madalina Melinda rated it it was amazing. Mar 21, Morarescu Martha rated it it was amazing. Jan 28, Maria rated it really liked it. I feel like Diana is some kind of mermaid, making men fall for her and then breaking their heart and hers at the same time I dont really know what to think about this I'm gonna think about this for a while.

I discovered the real Balchik only 6 years ago, and, surprisingly, it was like in my dreams, like in those evenings back then when my imagination had no boundaries and I felt each written line of the book like I was literally THERE. The book is mainly autobiographic, as Cella Serghi became a writer by chance after falling in love with the writer Camil Petrescu. I DO love every line of this book, it has such an incredible capacity of making you indulge in its world, you feel you are transported in that period, with those characters, you feel the sand and the salty air, you hear the waves and you, for sure, but FOR SURE, become Diana Slavu, the name Cella Serghi chose for herself in this book.
