Day 20 / A Book That Understands Me

Aktualisiert: 27. Dez 2018


On Day 20, we wanted to know if you ever met a book that fully understood you. See your inspiring and poetic inputs below.



- Astrid Lindgren - "No robbers in the woods" (Im Wald sind keine Räuber). When reading this book I could switch to an imaginary world. I was seven years old and when I think about it now I feel a desire to go there again.


- Hermann Hesse - "Gertrud"


- Gertrud Georges Simenon - "Le voyageur de la Toussaint Sandro Marsi"


- Sandor Marai - "Wandlungen einer Ehe"


- Harry Potter


- Nobody wrote a book about me. Maybe Steppenwolf and the magic theater meets that.


- Friedrich Torberg - "Tante Jolesch or the Decline of the West in Anecdotes" (in German: Die Tante Jolesch: oder Der Untergang des Abendlandes in Anekdoten)
