De Zwarte met het Witte Hart by Arthur Japin. Fine dutch literature :)

My grandfather gave me a biography about Nietzsche the other day which I'm planning to read when I finish the book I'm currently reading.

I didn't like Arthur Japin's De Grote Wereld..is that one better?

Een Schitterend Gebrek is supposed to be loads better..so maybe I'll read that some other time :)

Currently re-reading Nescio..

Nescio is about 2 leagues higher than Japin will ever be :D

Come on, name me one good "Boekenweekgeschenk" from the last decade :) (especially "Gala" was absolute bollocks, gg Gip)

Anyway, De Zwarte.. is indeed a lot better. KDF couldn't stop talking about it when I told him I was reading it.

I just finished reading 1984 by George Orwell. Definitively one of the most inspiring novels I've read in years.

A couple of years ago I've seen the film Equlibrium which is a nice film if you want more after reading 1984. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0238380/

George Orwell :)
1984 is one of the better ones, rather then Animal Farm. Also ... good film ^^


I still haven't started reading the book I mentioned in the last post g*

You saw that with me! \o/
I wanted to rent it again yesterday but I rented 'Hitchhiker's Guide'

..still currently reading 'Max Havelaar' which is some revolutionary book, that was not only important to Dutch literature, but something which also launched the whole idea of 'fair trade' etc. :)
