  • Loved it!

    I got straight into this book from the start and kept turning the pages. There are so many highlights, that stand out for me. I enjoyed the history, also the snippets of world events that helped put time in perspective, and more. The characters were so real that I missed them and wanted to the stories to go on, long after the book had ended.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The Eighth Life

    A monumental saga covering decades of a family's women. Brilliant! Unable to put down, it became an obsession which will be in my memory for a long time.

  • Vast family saga

    This book is a family saga that takes place around a chocolate recipe. It begins with the Russian Revolution and continues for a century in which we will witness intrigues, love stories without a happy ending, successes and failures. The book is vast in both the literal and metaphorical sense. It portrays the vicissitudes of human experience, with its nuances, without judgments of moral value. Originally written in german I can only judge the english translation, and I will say it is beautiful. I'm giving it 3 stars because I don't tend to like reading a thousand pages books. This books require a lot of time and commitment on the readers end and I'm not sure if it's a reading for everyone.

    Thanks for your feedback!
