I also can say that the author is extremely talented wordsmith. I didn’t like this book but it’s all a matter of taste’. Oskar Matzerath is een fascinerende vertelstem die grillig wisselt van perspectief, van eerste naar derde persoon en weer terug. He always identified himself as a Kashubian.

Admittedly, there were a few fleeting individual scenes that are excellent – dark and stomach-churning – but they did not lift my overall opinion. But then, there is Solzhenitsyn.

Maybe because I just let myself skim over parts that were boring me to tears? Perhaps I simply need to read it in German some day to grasp it Sincehe lived in West Germany, but in his fiction he frequently returned to the Danzig hoialata his childhood.
