Female. Slavic mind. Avid reader.

 I read across a broad range of book genres, with an emphasis on Aus/NZ lit, Russian and Ukrainian literature, Latin-American literature and European history.


Too Far Afield - Günter Grass This was a truly fine book to read, written masterfully. If you want to read a book which regards an immense dose of emotions, anecdotes and history in an assuaging manner, yet without compromising or making a semblance of these intangible aspects of life, then I would wholeheartedly recommend this book. I also took great enjoyment in reading the book, to such an extent I wasn't irritated by its formidable size, because of the large amount of insight it provided about key areas of German history that I've always found obscure. However, I really wish I had been better versed in German literature prior to taking on this novel.
