After reading so many books most of them do not provide any surprise.
Of course now I demand from a book much more than I required a few years ago. And it was spectacular that “Schadenfreude” by Chris Kelso has astonished me positively. It is a book that don’t leave me indifferent – one great good thing!
“Books are well written or badly written. That is all.” – “Schadenfreude” by Chris Kelso is well written, period.
And why it continues on my bedside table to be re-read from time to time? As Kafka said “I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us. If the book we are reading doesn’t wake us up with a blow on the head, what are we reading it for? …” – that’s why!
It was one of the best purchases of this year.
