    Book review: To be taught if fortunate

    Book review of To be taught if fortunate To be taught if fortunate is a short sci-fi novel by Becky Chambers. I found it via looking through my friends reads on Goodreads, and it looked enticing. Technically, it is categorized as a space opera. Whatever that means. (A quick online search tells me; “a novel, film, or television programme set in outer space, typically of a simplistic and melodramatic nature” – which doesn’t really say anything) To be taught if fortunate by Becky Chambers “In the future, instead of terraforming planets to sustain human life, explorers of the galaxy transform themselves. At the turn of the twenty-second century, scientists make…

    Book review: The Necrophiliac by Gabrielle Wittkop

    Book review of The Necrophiliac by Gabrielle Wittkop This book review of The Necrophiliac will perhaps be weird and surprising. As art has a tendency to do, conflicting emotions appeared when reading The Necrophiliac. The subject in itself is quite morbid and disturbing, but here’s what the book did! The Necrophiliac by Gabrielle Wittkop “A Parisian antique dealer with a lust for corpses indulges his macabre fetish in this faux shocking novella by the late Wittkop (1920–2002). It’s written in a diary format that plainly records the thoughts and actions of Lucien, a middle-aged man of some means who suffers a terrible loneliness that can only be assuaged by having…

    Book review: Kafka on the shore

    Book review of Kafka on the Shore This is my book review of Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami. I have read “Hardboiled wonderland and the end of the world” before, as my first Murakami book.

Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami “Kafka Tamura runs away from home at fifteen, under the shadow of his father’s dark prophecy. The ageing Nakata, tracker of lost cats, who never recovered from a bizarre childhood affliction, finds his pleasantly simplified life suddenly turned upside…
