Heb net eerste deel in paar dagen uitgelezen. Fascinerend, goed geschreven, echt weer een typisch Oek de Jong boek. Verheug me op het tweede deel !

Great book, wonderful sad story. For me Philida is the best book of the whole Booker prize long list.

Style and writing is very well done, but it does not work for me. Too much construction and technicalities.

Loved the book and the unfolding story. Nicely written and original. Very good especially when you are on a walking holiday in England !

Easy and quick holiday read. Humorous but not very original. For me certainly no booker prize candidate.

Fascinating and frightening story, written in a gripping style. Glad I read the book, thanks to the longlist bookerprize.

Liked the story line, the characters and the history of it. But on the whole I could not really get into the book. On the whole for me not convincing.
