really liked it
Read in February, 2009 — I own a copy

Søren Kierkegaard is a strange one. He writes not just under pseudonyms, but in characters. I'm not sure I ever dug to the heart of what I thought he actually felt about Repetition. But I know what the two characters in the book think. Which is his view? Who knows? A very strange read.

Also, on a much more technical/practical note, I hate endnotes. This edition/translation has lots and lots of notes and they are all end-notes, a half a book away from the thing they are referencing.

I love footnotes. You can't put notes in there without me reading them. But if I have to go all the way to the end of the book to read them, that's quite distracting. At the bottom of the page is much nicer.
