Fahrenheit 451- Ray Bradbury reviewed

Having used Fahrenheit 451 for my Bachelor’s thesis on Dystopian fiction, I spent a lot of time analyzing the book. It’s one of my favorite books- probably my favorite of Ray Bradbury’s, beating out even the magical Dandelion wine. Summary and review after the jump.

The Dinner- Herman Koch reviewed

My cousin recommended The Dinner a while back, so I was looking around for it for a while. However, Dutch books are pretty expensive compared to their English counterparts –which I find crazy since I live in the Netherlands yet they keep their own books pricier over other language books-, and I was determined to read the novel in its original Dutch version. Luckily, as I was scouring through boxes of books on the market one day I came across a copy for 2 Euros, and I immediately picked it up. That was already a few months back. I finally got round to reading it. Review and summary after the jump.
