    Book review: The Lesson by Eugene Ionesco

    Book review of The Lesson by Eugene Ionesco This is actually a review of the script for a play. The play is a part of my reading challenge, where I read a play a week. My goal is to read 52 plays in a year and you can follow my progress right here and maybe even start your own! The Lesson by Eugene Ionesco The Lesson is a short play by Eugene Ionesco.

    Book review: The Chairs by Eugene Ionesco

    Book review: The Chairs by Eugene Ionesco “The Chairs” by Eugene Ionesco is a script and I read it as part of my ‘A play a week reading challenge‘. I read it in Danish, but will review it in English since it is an internationally known piece. I will not go into detail about the surrounding contexts of the play when Ionesco wrote it, or even the author themselves. This book review will be just a review of the reading experience from a dramaturg’s point of view. Let’s dive into it!

    Book review: Do androids dream of electric sheep?

    This is my book review of Do Androids Dream of Electrical Sheep by Philip K. Dick. Book review of Do Androids Dream of Electrical Sheep I borrowed the book from a co-worker, who also reviews books (in Danish) in this laidback podcast LæsDen.dk – check them out if you speak Danish!

    Book review: Little Women

    Book review of Little Women by Louisa May Alcott Here’s my book review of “Little Women”. I read this book as part of the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge and you can follow my progress right here. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott was originally published in two volumes in 1868 and 1869, on request from Alcotts publisher.

Other fragments of research tell me, that she wasn’t exactly enjoying the stories too much herself, but wrote it for her publisher because they needed something for young girls. (Google it if you want…

    Book review: The Comedy of Errors

    The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare The Comedy of Errors is a Shakespearean classic and here are my thoughts of it. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a book review as it is a play of a certain age. But as a part of the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge, and me being a thespian, I just had to read it! Summary In short, The Comedy of Errors is a typical twin-comedy-drama and very Shakespeare. Two sets of twins are separated by a heinous storm. Two of them end up in one place, the other two somewhere else and herein lies the premise of our plot. The pairs of twins then…
