review 1: Deel 2 in de serie De grote eeuw.Broer Sverre gaat een hele andere kant uit dan de twee broers in deel 1.Zeer leuk boek voor wie zich interesseert in spoorwegen, tractoren, the Bloomsbury group, de impressionisten, ...Er komen weer heel wat (Engelse) geschiedkundige gebeurtenisse...

review 1: The pace of this adventure story might be plodding if not for the narrative unexpectedly skipping over many developments, most notably the brothers’ entire school career (revisited only briefly in flashbacks). Nonetheless it kept my attention to the end, although I frequently loo...

review 1: This was a good book - probably the best series so far from Guillou. He has toned down the super-heroism of the protagonists a bit (though they are still exceptional of course), and I like the well-researched historical thematics. The story becomes interesting thanks to all the h...

review 1: If someone had told me, a week and a half ago, that I would love a historical novel about engineering, bridge constructions in Norway and railway in Africa, I would have laughed out loud. However, as I have trust in Jan Guillou to write stuff that I like, I started. This book tur...

review 1: I can recommend this book as a relaxed way to learn about European colonialism in Africa; World War 1; the Europeans' belief in modernity at the beginning of the twentieth century and the building of railways. Guillou has been critisized for his flat female characters, which is a...

review 1: Every now and then it's nice to submerge into the lives of Guillou's superman protagonists. The stories mostly just surf along smoothly with no major obstructions and a substantial amount of great victories. The easygoing and light history lesson you as a reader receive is by no ...

review 1: Denna andra bok i romanserien är inte lika intressant som den första (Brobyggarna). Jag kan inte sätta fingret på den svaga punkten. Men som vanligt skriver J.G. med ett sällsynt flyt, och kastar in pärlor från världshistorien som kanske inte gemene man känner till. Jag är defini...

review 1: Evenals in de delen 1 (Bruggenbouwers) en 2 (Dandy uit het noorden) van de driedelige serie 'De grote eeuw' gebruikt Jan Guillou ook in het 3e deel (Tussen rood en zwart) omslachtige, gezwollen taal. De verschillende episodes uit het familie-epos zijn ondanks de weinige vaart toc...
