Rate this book
Clear rating
The only reason I was hesitant to give the full five stars is because I already gave her second novel five stars and I didn't want to come across as the fanboy that I've become.
The distant, dispassionate writing of Rooney is a strong reason why this

De Penis by Piet Hoebeke
Rate this book
Clear rating
"Everything you always wanted to know about the penis* (*but were afraid to ask)", als ik als zoveelste, Woody Allen mag verbasteren. Al klopt die omschrijving wel. Hoebeke heeft --samen met Tim F. Mensbrugghe-- een zeer toegankelijk, maar grondig bo ...more

Rate this book

"De verwachtingen waren hooggespannen, maar werden niet volledig ingelost. Beetje teveel clichés naar mijn goesting."

At times you have to remind yourself that this is non-fiction (well, autobiographical embellished non-fiction). Jahren succeeds --effortlessly it seems-- in captivating her audience by alternating the more tedious stuff (if you can call any of this t ...more
