Geachte heer M. (2014)
language
English
3.32 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Na 'Het diner' (het Zomerhuis heb ik niet gelezen) heeft Koch de lat natuurlijk hoog gelegd en is het moeilijk om dezelfde spanning, hilariteit en kwaliteit vast te houden. Wat mij betreft is dat bij Geachte heer M. dan ook niet gelukt. Wel mooi: de verschillende verhaallijnen en...

review 1: I was in heaven with this one... A mean, sarcastic narrator - a mean, saracastic doctor with nothing but contempt for his patients - hooray, it's like a visit to my GP! Just kidding, my GP is awesome (please don't ever retire, Dr S - you know you love my periodic visits where I...

review 1: I admit, I could NOT put this book down! It was dark and intriguing! The reason I only give it 3/5 starts? I did some research and discovered that the author had in mind "something like Autism" when he described the condition the father and son have that make them do cruel things...

review 1: Het boek zit leuk in elkaar, met verschillende oogpunten en vormstijlen, en verschillende verhaallijnen, zonder dat het ingewikkeld of gekunsteld wordt. 2 verhalen groeien naar elkaar toe, toevallig bijna, omdat de een de bovenbuurman is van de ander.Leest dus makkelijk weg maar ...

review 1: Should be 2.5 but no half marks here. strange book to review when you are reading it it flows , the twist works the characterisation is good but when you step away from the book it when considered seems to fall apart very easily. The Dinner is i think a better considered book but...

review 1: Mixed feelings. Koch again delivers in his characteristic style of the cynical middle class protagonist who believes themselves to be above everyone. Paul Lohman takes the guise of Marc Schlosser, a disillusioned doctor. There is something intoxicating about his prose and the tho...

review 1: First of all, this book is populated mostly with horrible people. Really, truly awful people. I don't have to like the characters to like a book, but if I don't like them, the rest of the book has to be interesting. Instead, this is just a long meander through horrible people doi...

review 1: I thought this book was great, unexpectedly thrilling with such bizarre twists in the characters and an terrifying glimpse into the mind of a sociopath. The plot basically centers around one night at dinner and something horrific that's happened between the sons of two brothers; ...
