it was amazing
bookshelves: 1994, german, male-writers
Read in January, 1994

I'd swear that I've reviewed this ages ago, but apparently I didn't.

Homo Faber is one of my favourite books from the many books we read in school (and I often felt that reading something in school has the potential to make you hate every book, because no matter how good, over-analyzation is a killjoy).

But Homo Faber, well, I love everything about it. I love its major theme, the whole fate versus coincidence question. I love how it is symbolized, or maybe rather broken down to smaller subjects choice, freewill, technology, control against predestination and belief... it raises questions are very present in my personal values and beliefs throughout the whole book.

I have to admit that apart from Andorra, which I for some reason saw at least twice in a theatre, I'm not really familiar with Max Frisch's other works. I have Gantenbein on my to-read bookshelf, though, and I'm sure that I will be in the mood to read it some day soon.
