#Fridayreads



Det er fredag. Her på matriklen er fredag ensbetydende med fredagsslik og fredagsbog (før eller efter Disney Sjov vel og mærke).
I aften er det Karl Ove Knausgårds sjette og sidste bind, jeg læser. Og det er, for at være helt ærlig, også lidt en kamp for mig i øjeblikket. Jeg er nået til det lange og famøse essay-lignende afsnit om Hitler og Mein Kampf, og det trækker altså lidt tænder ud. 

Hvad læser du i dag? Og hvis du har læst Min Kamp 6 vil jeg meget gerne høre om din oplevelse af bogen, og om du også fandt den lidt sej at komme gennem? 





It's friday. Which for me equals friday sweets and a friday book. 
Tonight I'm reading Karl Ove Knausgaards sixth and final volume in his "My Struggle"-series. And to be honest, it's a bit of a struggle for me too. I've reached the long and famous essay-like chapter on Hitler and Mein Kampf, and it's tough to get through. 

What are you reading tonight? And if you've read My Struggle 6 I'd love to hear what you thought of it, and if you - like me - found it a challenge.

  1. Jeg er ret imponeret over, at du er næsten færdig med serien. Godt gået :)

    Tror ikke selv jeg skal læse den, men så kan jeg i stedet hygge mig med 'Krig og fred' i sommerferien! :D

    Jeg er i gang med at læse en række noveller af Lars Ahn og regner med at blive færdig i aften.

    God weekend!


    Mvh.

    1. Haha, mange tak! :D Indtil nu synes jeg, det har været en fornøjelse, men puh.. Er ikke kommet meget længere siden jeg skrev dette indlæg.

      "Krig og Fred" er da også noget af en mursten. Men så er den selvfølgelig også perfekt til en sommerferie, hvor man kan finde tid til det! :D

      Jeg håber, novellerne var gode?

  2. Hi Ida,
    I just started reading the volume 5. Volume 6 was published in Germany a month ago as a hardcover. I'm still waiting for the paperback edition, which is little cheaper. The library has only six copies. But all books have been lent. I will preorder the book. I am very curious about Knaus Gard's philosophical essay in which he combines the philosophical insights from Karl Marx to Jack London, Rilke and Jünger. I have already written something about my thoughts to volume 1 and 2 to you. In Volume 3 and 4, which deal with Knausgard's childhood and youth, I have considered what the difference to my experiences is. Actually, much is similar, but there is a significant difference. I grew up in another social system. The political pressure of the state had a considerable, destructive influence on my family. It was a cloak of fear over so many people who paralysed everything. It was even worse than a strict father. I've always seen fear. In Knausgard’s life described in his books, I have never found political pressure.
    Best regards
    Wolfgang

    1. Hey Wolfgang,

      Wow, you've really dug into it and reached far very fast. I'm glad you seem to enjoy it so much!
      I've actually been struggling a lot with the philosophical essays you mention. Maybe because I'm not as scholared in this field and therefore struggle to follow him. I'm at a bit of a stand still that's for sure.
      It's a very interesting point you raise there. Knausgård never mentions a political pressure, that's for sure. The fear in his novels are all centred around his father. When I read your comment it seems you recognise the fear although it was centred around something entirely different in your own case?
      I hope you're well,
      Ida
