kindle ´ De ontdekking van de hemel µ Harry Mulisch

De ontdekking van de hemel ´ They share responsibility for the birth of a remarkable and radiant boy who embarks on a mandated uest that takes the reader all over Europe and to the land where De o A highlight of Dutch literature but a bit uneven in uality The first 400 pages are sublime especially in the drawing of the love triangle Onno Ada Max Every page is a gem and the situation sketches sometimes are very ingenious But then the story falters starting with the comatose state of Ada the suspense slips; the Bildungsroman that follows around uinten is uite readable but the detective story with which the novel ends in the final chapter to me was an anti climax Just like Hugo Claus the king of Flemish literature Mulisch the king of literature in the Netherlands seems to lapse into automatisms often pedanticly boasting with his knowledge and insights often also too verbose and inserting personal experiences in a too obvious wayNevertheless this is absolutely worth reading 35 stars kindle ´ De ontdekking van de hemel µ Harry Mulisch
