Novel Insights’ February Review

I discovered a new author to love this month, and had a little taste of Hungarian literature. My top three books this month were;

Through The Wall, by Ludmilla Pertrushevskaya (5/5)

Through the Wall, by Ludmilla Petrushevskaya

“They are dark and melancholy stories but each has a resolution and tells of human resilience.”



Fateless, by Imre Kertsesz (4/5)

Fateless, by Imre Kertesz“…unique in the way that it addresses the experience of concentration camps.”



Children on Their Birthdays, by Truman Capote (4/5)

Children on Their Birthdays, Truman Capote, Penguin Modern Classics“…little observational pieces that capture a fleeting moment in time…”



I read Embers, by Sandor Marai and The Private Lives of Trees, by Alejandro Zambra. Reviews are coming soon.

I also finally got around to reviewing

The Slap, by Christos Tsiolkas (2.5/5)

“…the book…tried to cover too much ground, which made the middle to end section of the book really drawn out…”

What were your favourite reads this month?

  1. I’m going to cheat and say my favourite book was Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth even though I finished in March!
