    Zoran ivkovi s The Fourth Circle was originally published in 1994, This Edition is the Ministry of Whimsy hardcover edition In the afterword ivkovic tells about the problems and issues of writing his first novel.The kind of book that beggs re reading.

    Sa ivkovi evim delom sam se prvi put susreo pre par godina, u dva dana pro itav i obe zbirke Nemogu ih pri a Njegov suv, introvertan stil me je ba ubio, nije da mi se nije svideo, nego sam preterao sa dozom I od tada sam re io da izmedju njegovih knjiga bude makar 5 nekih drugih etvrti krug potvrdjuje njegovo majstorstvo da gotovo bez dijaloga, kratko i turo opi e dogadjaje koje se grani e sa naukom i realno u Reference na ljude i dogadjaje koristi gotovo spartanski,koliko da zaokruzi radnju i o [...]

    A wonderful, surreal, multi layered novel, which includes as part of its fourth circle a splendid Sherlock Holmes pastiche.Zivkovic is one hellishly original and talented writer.

    Tesko je bilo odrzati paznju i ubediti se da istrajem do krajaMada je interesantan koncept i na momente jasna ideja cak ni kraj nije popravio utisak i opravdao ocekivanja Mozda je delo namenjeno uzem krugu ili meni samo nije leglo Ima Zivkovic mnogo citljivijih dela sa pricama koje zelim da pratim od pocetka do kraja bez kredita na osnovu imena Ipak moj naklon ovom velikom piscu
