Lists with This Book. Dimitri is born livo twelve fingers. And he is clumsy. That’s the gist of the book. He stumbles through the 20th Century, all the while trying to do his best to assassinate some of the leaders of the time. Dimitri can speak any language and learn any trade, a chameleon.
His goal is to assassinate a world leader, but his extra digits always seem to conspire against him. As he ages, we get to meet Mata Hari, Al Capone, Franklin Roosevelt and others, as he either befriends them or lines them Dimitri is born with twelve fingers. As he ages, we get to meet Mata Hari, Al Capone, Franklin Roosevelt and others, as he either befriends them or lines them up for murder.
While reading this, I thought of Zeligthe Woody Allen movie where an average joe gets inserted into famous moments of recent history. A narrator says, “When you look back on it, it was very strange. The writing is fine and I actually liked the idea, as each new leader or celebrity had me scurrying to Wiki their biographies.

The Al Capone section and the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre kept me interested, but the little dwarf who is the ae of the Thuggee and who chases Dimitri all over the world, well he left me a bit bored.
Overall, not a bad book but I had a difficult time staying fully interested once the famous folks left the pages.

All the “humor” is over-the-top slapstick physical comedy, with little authorial effort put into actual wit. This book is supposed to be historical, but it reads like the author Googled a few famous names from the time period and randomly inserted them into various chapters for little to no reason.
The main character is somehow inexplicably a genius who speaks every language and is a crack shot with every gunan This book is supposed to be funny, but it just reads like a Looney Tunes cartoon.
The main character is somehow inexplicably a genius who speaks every language and is a crack shot with every gunand ALSO a totally buffoonish, klutzy idiot caricature, making him feel like two totally separate people with the same name. He has no personality or even any reason for his fanaticism.
He is just super talented at everything kivro ever tries, except for the thing he keeps trying to do. He has lots of opportunities to take that eesganadas a sign, choose a new profession better suited to his talents, and learn and develop as a character – but doesn’t.
He’s frustrating and boring to read, the Gary Stu of assassins, which is a phrase I never thought I’d have cause to say. Nothing of importance ever happens in the plot, because he fails at everything he does.
Except for have sex with women, which he does constantly, and we’re told he’s supernaturally good at it But the author tells us his character is a sex wizard, and goes into totally excessive detail about his various partners’ nipples, so obviously it must be true.
I’m not sure how extra fingers would make you any better at pleasing a woman, but what do I know about anatomy?
I wasn’t impressed, and if this is the author’s idea of “a rip-roaring romp through history”, I’ll stick with the nonfiction, thanks. And did I mention he has six fingers on each hand? The comedy begins when he is one a dozen assassins trying ad take out Archduke Ferdinand in But there are plenty more chances for him to spoil the fun.
He is implicated in responsibility for the arrest and esgganadas execution of the notorious beautiful spy, Mata Hari. He next lands in Chicago where he hooks up with Al Capone, and was almost, but not quite, involved in the St. Working for Al at the time of Al federal tax difficulties, he managed to bribe the wrong jury, sending Capone to jail and Dmitri fleeing for his life.
Perhaps he was involved in the assassination attempt on Franklin D. Roosevelt in Miami in in which five people were shot historical fact. True to his blundering ways, Dmitri ends up causing his first killing in trying to prevent the ousted dictator, Getulio Vargas, from committing suicide.
The book includes many real historical photos of the assassins and the assassinated. I have a weakness for picaresque novels, and so lovro up this one about a Serbo-Brazillian anarchist assassin with great anticipation. It tells the story of Dmitiri, a fingered boy with a gift for languages and a childhood en a Balkan circus at the start of the 20th century. Like Zelig or Forest Gump, take your pickhe moves across continents and in and out of esgnadas fringes of history, a part of major events, but always just out of the frame, or ligro out of focus quite literally — the I have a weakness for picaresque novels, and so picked up this one about a Serbo-Brazillian anarchist assassin with great anticipation.
Like Zelig or Forest Gump, take your pickhe moves across continents and in and out of the fringes of history, a part of major events, but always just out of the frame, or slightly out of focus quite literally — the book is heavily illustrated with period photos.
As quasi-historical fiction, it’s fun esganadaw especially delicious is a homicidal dwarf who pursues Dmitiri throughout the bookand Soares does a wonderful job weaving his earnest protagonist into history. However, the pratfalls do get a little repetitive over time — even for a fan of the picaresque, and the book kind of runs out of steam just licro it should be climaxing.
Nonetheless, it has whet my appetite to track down the author’s eganadas book in translation, A Samba for Sherlock. Dimo, of a Brazilian mother and Bosnian father, and a half castrati, leaves home as a teenager to fulfill his destiny, marked by the twelve fingers he was born with, to become as assassin: He goes down a path where at every turn he makes, murder and mayhem is left behind; but not by his hands, to his utmost disappointment.
From causing World War I to Fargas’ suicide, from Bosnia to Chicago, Dimitri comes oh so close to fulfilling his esganasas Dimo, of a Lifro mother and Bosnian father, and a half castrati, leaves home as ae teenager to fulfill his destiny, marked by the twelve fingers he was born with, to become as assassin: From causing World War I to Fargas’ suicide, from Bosnia to Chicago, Dimitri comes oh so close to fulfilling his destiny before someone else takes the prize.
Beautifully written, this book is a history lesson with real events and real people, rewritten to tell the story of a confused romantic anarchist, with death on his mind, but which can never find its way to his clumsy twelve-fingered hands.
O Homem Que Matou Getúlio Vargas: Biografia De Um Anarquista by Jô Soares
An intensely fun read. Thank you Ronny for recommending this! A tragicomedy for history nerds. This tale of the world’s most charming and hapless assassin, Forrest Gump as a twelve-fingered Serbian-Brazilian anarchist out to rid the esganaeas of tyrants, is a rake gag of a book, and I suspect a lot of folks will find it repetitive.
Personally I got a lot of laughs out of the journey of seeing how things would go sideways on Dimo this time. As it goes on there’s also hints of a Panglossian figure sadly stuck on a dream that’s never going to come true and giving A tragicomedy for history nerds.
As it goes on there’s also hints of a Panglossian figure sadly stuck on esganadaas dream that’s never going to come true and giving up everything good in life for it, as well as a subtle commentary on ewganadas power of the unremembered and nameless to impact history.
For some reason, I didn’t find it quite as appealing as “Samba,” perhaps because so ae of the novel takes place outside Brazil. Still a fun read. O outro, igualmente ruim, apenas um pouquinho menos pior por aprendermos um pouco sobre o Rio de Janeiro colonial.
Hihihihihi thanks esganadqs Ronny for lending me this book Baru sampe halaman 24 siiii Quite light, funny n’ also meaningful book It’s fun to read it What a clumsy Anarchist Dimo is! No entanto, dos policiais que li, este foi o que menos me prendeu. Feb 17, Edgar Coelho Inouye added it Recommends it for: When you llivro reading this work, you can realize that Soares did many researches to build the historical facts.
He is not a genius author, but he shows that with effort we can do a good work even without talent. I like it so much right now! It took me a while to read Usually I’d swallow a book this size whole in only a few days.
This took me nearly a month. May 28, Emmanoelle rated it really liked it. Nov 14, Freddie Lupo rated it really liked it. Nasceu em 16 de janeiro deno Rio de Janeiro. No trivia lvro quizzes yet.
