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 (Madame Bovary)."

  1. I was in the mood for something bizarre so I chose Franz Kafka's 'The Trial.' I'm pleased to have finally finished it, as it has been on my shelves forever!

  2. The Journals of Kierkegaard was quite the interesting book- I look forward to re-reading it!

  3. I chose Anna Karenina, and enjoyed it a lot. I wish I'd got stuck into the Russian classics years ago :)

    1. For some reason the link didn't stay. I re-posted it above.

  6. Perhaps because I had to listen to this book rather than read it I found it much harder than Volume One which was my book in translation for the 2017 challenge. Sigrid Unset was a wonderful writer.
