Deel 1 had ik in 2013 gelezen, ruim zes jaar geleden, en daarmee was het moeilijk in het verhaal te komen. Wie zijn al die mensen ook weer? Allengs werd de wereld helderder en ging ik meer onthouden wie wie was. Toen werd het een heel boeiend ...more

The Power and the Glory by Graham Greene

Being a catholic priest in Mexico in the 1920's is dangerous. The communists are in power (I didn't know that), and they can lock you up and kill you. Or they force you to marry, making you unbelievable as a priest.

The Power and the Glory by Graham Greene
"Reading this book made me question the way literature is being taught in the Dutch schools. I read this book for school when I was a teenager. But only reading it again as a grown up I could really appreciate it, and also appreciate how it was was..." Read more of this review »

A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan

Clear rating
An engaging report of a scientific expedition for dragons. Not very 'lady-like' according to the norms of the time, harking back to our 19th century. Luckily the main character Lady Trent does not care what society thinks.

Het verhaal van een jongen die in zichzelf toverkracht ontdekt, en volwassen moet worden en uitvinden waar hij nu eigenlijk tegen moet vechten. Als je weet wie je echte vijand is, heb je het halve gevecht gewonnen.

Maurits van Rees and 2 other people liked Johan Haneveld's review of Titanium:
Titanium by Mara van Ness
"9+ Dat ik betrokken ben bij de serie 'De zwijgende aarde' zal wellicht mijn mening over dit boek kleuren, maar wat in elk geval vaststaat is dat ik er erg van heb genoten. Net als de eerste twee delen van de reeks die al waren verschenen, 'Revolte..." Read more of this review »
Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb
"I had forgotten how good this book by Robin Hobb was! And on this second read through I think I even appreciated it more than 10 years ago. Knowing what follows in the next trilogies, I see the groundwork she does here, setting up intrigues and st..." Read more of this review »
