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 (Les Miserables)."


  1. This category was a free choice for me because I've decided against reading any classics in my native language for this challenge, so I picked a classic I wanted to read for ages, Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh. -Anahit

  2. Somebody I respect told me that a person that really likes to drink doesn't need a reason to drink, but it always bugged me that Waugh never specifies in Brideshead Revisited why Sebastian drinks. Recently it bugged me that in The Steppe Checkhov does not say why the uncle and priest let the kid travel with the rough-neck drovers and shepherds. Details, details.....
