review 1: Op de achterkant van het boek staat:" In Schlinks zeven vertellingen van bijna melancholieke schoonheid - stuk voor stuk romans in een notendop- zijn de bedachte, de spontane en de verstandige leugens waarmee we leven altijd aanwezig. Van comfortabel zelfbedrog, tot een leven dat...

review 1: The listened to The Weekend as an audio book driving to and from Cleveland, so it's actually perfect that this post falls in the midst of Cleveland Week! I read this book because Schlink wrote one of my all-time favorite books, The Reader, which to me is one of the greatest books...
O Fim de Semana (2010)
language
English
3.09 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: That was a very entertaining little book. The characters were all well-round and at many times provoked strong responses while I read.I really enjoyed the fiction within the fiction and by the end would've liked to read about the faster days of terrorist Jan rather than the slow ...

review 1: This was a haunting book. The stories are very well written, but all of them left me with a sense of sadness and foreboding. Some of the stories had me begging the main character (usually a male) to stop being such a jerk or idiot, urging him on to do the right thing, and in one ...
Zomerleugens: verhalen (2010)
language
English
3.71 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I don't often read short stories so it was satisfying to get through them quickly. All the stories were poignant and reflective where there were regrets and disappointments. They were pretty sad. All the stories had a male protagonist until the final one which was female. Her mis...
The Gordian Knot. Bernhard Schlink (1988)
language
English
3 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Under the guise of a thriller, Berhard Schlick proposes some of the themes he has used in his weightier novels: the obsession of love, the bending of boundaries, the internal conflicts we have. He does a great job in portraying his landscapes whether they are Province or San Fran...

language
English

review 1: Now, readers of Schlink's fiction will know that most of his books are in some way about reconciling the past with the present. This book is a series of essays (based upon a series of lectures) that explores the concepts of collective guilt; how we might use history to motivate i...
