Five Star Novels

In 2014 I started writing my blog BooksandLiliane. So far I have rewarded only four books with five stars.

John Williams

A beautiful novel about an average man. We follow him from college on to his death. His life is not exciting, there are no thrilling events - just beautiful words and sentences. I loved every minute of it.

McEwan brilliant novel about a judge ruling and thereby influencing the lives of children and by and by that of herself and her husband.

Eimear McBride

***** No doubt the most disturbing novel I read in a long time. Mostly due to the fact that through the use of stream of consciousness you get literally sucked into the mind and emotions of the main character. I literally had to put away A Girl at times because I just could not go on. I was dragged into the story, McBride captivated me and I kept on reading. Enjoying it would not be the right word, maybe experiencing every word and emotion.

***** In één woord geweldig! In het begin was het even je verstand erbij houden omdat alle informatie uit meerdere hoeken tot je komt. Desondanks bleef ik geïntrigeerd doorlezen. Ik wilde weten wat er nu gebeurd was en wat al die mensen met elkaar te maken hadden. Catton strooit vervolgens 800 pagina's lang brokjes informatie op haar lezers af.
