Severské listy je nejlépe přečíst hned po návratu ze severu... Jen tak vidíme, kolik z Čapkova cestopisu je stále platné. Samozřejmě, změnilo se toho spoustu, Čapek ale krásně vystihl jak charakter seveřanů, tak velkolepost tamější krajiny. Střídají se pasáže melancholické, až snad patetické s pasážemi svižnými plnými vtipných a trefných postřehů. U vyprávění o plavbě s americkou náboženskou sektou se můžeme zasmát opravdu srdečně.

One of Čapek's short travelogues (roughly the size of novella), now about 75 years old, so some of the descriptions are massively outdated, while some others remain surprisingly relevant. Long sentences divided by semicolons are little disturbing while reading and electronic version misses the illustrations, which really is a pity, but overall this book made me want to explore the North even more than before :)

Po krásných Anglických listech mi toto přišlo vyloženě slabé - snad je to tím, že byla kniha proložena verši, či tím na můj vkus až přehnaných melancholickým lyrickým líčením jinak věřím určitě překrásné severské krajiny a přírody. Tři hvězdy za plavbu na titerném parníku a amerického pastora s jeho vírou :o)
