Challenge Link-Up Post: Classic in Translation


Please link your reviews for your Classic in Translation here.  This is only for the Classic in Translation category.  These should all be classics that were originally written in a language other than your primary language; that is, if you are a native English speaker, it should be a classic written in another language other than English.  If you are not a native English speaker, it could be in English (or any other language, other than your primary language). If you want to read the book in its original language, that's fine too!

If you do not have a blog, or somewhere public on the internet where you post book reviews, please write your mini-review/thoughts in the comments section.  If you like, you can include the name of your blog and/or the title of the book in your link, like this: "Karen K. @ Books and Chocolate (Germinal)."

  5. Here I am with something Egyptian for you - though some may be disappointed to find that the novel isn't set in Ancient Egypt, but during World War II. Originally written in Arabic, I read it in English translation. Enjoy my review!

    I reckon that next time I read something Egyptian I should go for "The Book of Thoth" (the original, not Aleister Crowley's !!!) - that would be a classic! ;-)

  8. And here's a second contribution for this category (I intend to make it two in all) - a less-known Japanese classic from 1935 written by a woman from the point of view of a man. I hope that my review will give you an idea!

  11. "The Fortunes of the Rougons" by Emile Zola. I had to do a bit of historical research as I was reading this book. I learned a lot but I am not sure I will be reading the other 19 volumes of this series.
