    " I wish I were Zorba, a passionate actor in life. I'm afraid I'm more of a scholar, the flip side of the Zorba coin. Would I prefer to confront injustice head on? Or read books and research the cause of injustice? I'd rather read about, not confront, injustice. I'm no Zorba, but I love him. Another great work by Kazantzakis. His writings scream with passion. Read him, for chrissake! "

    " This book has a valuable lesson for me; an English teacher in high school first recommended it to me. I didn't realize at the time what it was I was supposed to get out of the book. But since then I've read it several more times, and each time, I get more out of it; the older I get, the more I appreciate what Kazantzakis has to tell me through Zorba. ... "

    " An expansive read. Lots of everything. Good. I feel that I may need to re-read this at some point in the future to really absorb all that is here. I recommend. "

    " We all have a little Zorba in our hearts, but it's time to listen to it more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine | 1/21/2014

    " Not a book that I would give to a teenager- mainly because i read this when i was going through one of those deep, philosophical adolescent phases and it convinced me that i should really just go out and live it up a little. Still love it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Khaled | 1/10/2014

    " I've read this magnificent novel four times, and I'm in need to read once more!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa | 1/6/2014

    " I loved this novel. It's about loving life and living it without limits; about true and lasting friendships; about being courageous and undaunted. It is about enjoying life without judging yourself by other people's standards, without seeing yourself through their eyes, their judgments and their preconceived notions of what you ought to do and not do. I am surprised at how many found Zorba offensive and his views mysogynistic. Zorba's love and passion for life were child-like and spirited. Brimming! Filled to overflowing! Maybe living "in the moment" is not for all of us. It is certainly not for me. The choices I have made do not make that possible. So thank goodness, then, for people like Zorba the Greek. By way of this book, people like me can live vicariously through people like him. "

    " Did not enjoy this book a great deal, possibly because I found there was so little I could relate too. I found the characters greatly unsympathetic. Undeniably an excellent book though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fernanda Alves | 4/1/2013

    " My Favorite Book as of now. For sure. Just so great.. I love Zorba! "

    " This novel is the best ever "

    " he enjoyed the world as he is a child,he saw the beaty so pure...and he was simple...full of experiences which couldn't made him complicated!...in that book i saw the two opposite parts of Nikos Kazantzakis before eachother,living together...one is a writer..and the other is ZORBA!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ethan | 7/14/2009

    " The finest novel ever produced, not to mention the finest illustration of the Apollonian/Dionysian dichotomy in human nature. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nouran | 5/11/2008

    " Oh God! I LOVE this novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dan Hahn | 3/30/2008

    " Although I finished this book about a month or so ago, I keep thinking about it. This book makes you want to stop reading so much and go out and live life. Ain't it grand? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarialp7 | 9/1/2007

    " It was a good story but i can not say i was impressed with the writer's way of expressing, telling the story. I had to read many chapters twice or more. Maybe it was me, or the translation or both! Still, it was an okay book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mel | 12/12/2006

    " I found the portrait of Zorba, and the contrast with the narrator, compelling - even if I found the pace of events a bit slow (which weren't the point, but nonetheless...). Zorba's full experience and enjoyment of life is a joy and makes one think about one's own approach. Worth reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriel | 10/17/2006

    " Everything good and important about life is in this book. I will read it again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Martinxo | 8/7/2006

    " Oh, I started off enjoying this book but after a while it became a bit of a bore and then a drag and then just plain annoying. While there are some interesting insights, much of the writing is dull and the endless misogyny is tedious and dumb. It did make me want to visit Crete again though. "

    " Zorba was the most awesome hippie of his time. "
