Review: Zomerhuis met Zwembad by Herman Koch

“There are times when you run back through your life, to see whether you can locate the point at which it could still have taken a different turn.”
― Herman KochSummer House with Swimming Pool

This was another one of those books I had trouble getting into (I usually read fantasy), but once the story started to roll, I was barely able to stop reading! The best word I can tag to this book is ‘interesting’. I don’t want to spoil anything, but some ‘things’ happened which made the doctor do what he did. It was awful to read about, but it was so well written. To quote the review of La Tribuna, ‘A story about love, betrayel, taboos and revenge, which will make you feel the shivers on your spine,’

Rating: ★★★★

Note: I read the original, the Dutch version, of the book. There are translations of it. The English title is ”Summerhouse with Swimming Pool”.
