Cathedral of the Sea by Ildefonso Falcones

I read 1/3 of this book and just couldn't finish. Despite all its historical accuracy, I found it boring, the characters underdeveloped and very black and white, the dialogue pretty low grade, the plot way too simple, the story too theatrical. It's s ...more

I had never heard about this Danish author until I read a review of his debut novel in The New York Times, and I must say that it didn't disappoint. Storytelling at it's very best, centered around the delightful performance artist and mathematician, ...more

Kaptajn Dinesen 2, "Til døden os skiller" by Tom Buk-Swienty
Rate this book
Clear rating
Dette andet bind i Dinesen biografien er en tand bedre end det foerste, som ellers ogsaa var rigtig godt. Det handler mindre om krige og mere om Wilhelms personlige liv med Ingeborg og boernene, livet som forfatter og politiker, og ikke mindst hans l ...more

Kaptajn Dinesen 1, "Ild og blod" by Tom Buk-Swienty
Rate this book
Clear rating
En fremragende biografi om Karen Blixens fars unge liv. Dette foerste bind er i sagens natur meget optaget af krige og der er en del gentagelser undervejs som nok kunne have vaeret luget ud, men det er stadig uhyre interessant laesning, der giver et ...more

Haruki Murakami
“We survived. You and I. And those who survive have a duty. Our duty is to do our best to keep on living. Even if our lives are not perfect.”
Haruki Murakami, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage

Haruki Murakami
“No matter how quiet and conformist a person’s life seems, there’s always a time in the past when they reached an impasse. A time when they went a little crazy. I guess people need that sort of stage in their lives.”
Haruki Murakami, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage

Maren Uthaug
“Når folk senere i livet hørte, at Risten havde nordnorske aner, spurgte de ofte, om nordlyset ikke var et fantastisk syn. Jo, svarede hun så og skyndte sig at skifte emne. Sandheden var, at hun aldrig havde set det. Hun var jo ikke idiot.”
Maren Uthaug

Steen Steensen Blicher
“Hvad ere en Naturbeskrivelse andet end en Oversaettelse? Endogså den meest vellykkede staaer ligesaalangt under Originalen som Himmelbjerget i Jylland under Himmelbjerget i Thibet. Derfor gunstige Læser! hav mig undskyldt, naar jeg ikke fortæller Dig alt hvad jeg her saae. Hvad jeg saae kunde jeg maaskee sige Dig: men hvorledes jeg saae det? Neppe! – Enkelthederne kunde jeg fremstille Dig een efter en anden, men Heelheden – alt paa eengang? – dertil – om “Du endog har Oere, har Tungen ikke Ord.” Min Pen er ingen Pensel. Rejs! Rejs selv til Himmelbjerget, og see!”
Steen Steensen Blicher

Cynthia Huntington
“It seems to me that the greatest adventure is to find a home in the world, particularly in the natural world, to earn a sense of belonging deeply to a place and to feel the deep response well up within you and become a part of you. When it is done, it can't be lost; the knowledge is as acute and sure as falling in love.”
Cynthia Huntington, The Salt House
