The Twin (2006)
language
English
3.86 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I don't think it was just my yearning to be once again in the Dutch countryside that fostered my enjoyment of this book (although this book did help to ease that ache). There is a matter of factness to the writing that is intensely charming. Helmer does not speak often, but as we...

review 1: Okurken son derece zorlandığım klostrofobik bir kitap bu. Adı gibi döne döne yine aynı yere varıyor. Emily Dickinson'ın şiirleri içerisinde Hollanda'daki hayatından kaçıp İngiltere'de minicik bir hayat yaşamaya başlayan bir kadının öyküsü. Kadın yine aynı yöne doğru gidiyor ve ne...

review 1: The landscapes were beautifully described. and the animals, especially the donkeys and sheep. I liked the narrator and didn't even mind the nicely tied up ending, I thought it was time he had a nice something. I read this book super fast, I had a hard time putting it down, from t...

review 1: I can't believe I read the whole thing. Usually I quit quickly. In this case, though, the writer's voice seemed honest and straightforward (as it continued to be). Not trying to impress. I like that. But the big twin thing that we have been waiting for the whole book turns ou...
De omweg (2010)

review 1: This is a strange book. I don't really know what I think about it and I'm still not sure what happened at the end. It was a bizarre combination of intriguing, unsettling and tedious. I found it irritating and pretentious but, oddly, I felt compelled to finish it, possibly due to ...

review 1: This was an interesting book. Not the most captivating I have read, but it was an interesting read. First, we don't get to know the name of the main character until the two last chapters. It makes the book impersonal. But it also creates a mysterious effect around the character. ...
