Taken from the book buffet - usually anything related to Berlin is a must-read for me!

(just realised this was even on my wishlist! My lucky day :D)

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Strangely fascinating, although the story (or actually the lack thereof) was a bit exhausting... There were a million things crammed into this book but hardly any proper storyline to follow. Kind of like real life, come to think of it :D Also, knowing most places that he mentiones in Berlin made me feel nicely nostalgic.

Moving on via Authors from unusual countries -sweepstakes; perhaps not the most unusual country but the best I could come up with this time, so hopefully the recipient will enjoy it :)

Woo hoo, I'm the decoy! Thanks for the lovely surprise. Although The Netherlands isn't that far away, reading a book from a Dutch author is very unusual for me, the only one I can think of is Anne Frank. So thanks for introducing me to this one. :-)

My favourite part of this book was where the main character was spending time with his friends. I really like eavesdropping on their conversations! I don't think I would have come across this book if it wasn't for Bookcrossing so thanks very much for sending it to me Sakirmo.

Coincidentally I recently finished reading Paul Auster's ' The Book of Illusions' in which, as with this novel, the central character had recently lost in his family in an aeroplane crash. Now although I didn't feel that Auster's book is a particularly great one I do feel that he manages to demonstrate the daily sufferings following untimely loss far better than Nooteboom does.

This book was not originally written in English so I am willing to admit that it is possible that something was lost in translation. Therefore, if I happen to stumble across another of the author's works I will be willing to give it a go.

Wondered who on earth was knocking on our door at 10.30 at night to find it was our neighbour with a parcel of books and not an axe murderer 😂

16 Oct 2020 - I picked this book up and flicked through quickly groaning as I spotted paragraphs that were more than a page long! I The started reading, got around 20 pages in but kept getting distracted as it was a bust week. I put it down and read something else until the weekend when life calmed down and I had time to try and get into it properly. And although those fist twenty or so pages did sink in second time round I’m not sure I should of bothered. This just wasn’t my sort of book. And although there was the odd sentence that stood out as thought provoking, I just didn’t care for any of the characters, and the story line didn’t really hold any interest.
