Samir's Critical Corner

I love good writing. Samir's Critical Corner will have reviews on World Literature but you will also find reviews on various subjects like Mathematics or Tai Chi, and on specific niches like Nigerian writers.

Currently reading

South Sea Tales (Oxford World's Classics)
Robert Louis Stevenson
Progress: 122/289 pages
God's Mountain - Erri De Luca, Michael  Moore Another masterpiece by Erri de Luca, I'm now looking forward to reading more by this novelist. If I had read this book before Three Horses, I might have given it five stars but as good as it is, it still doesn't measure up to the poetic voice of Three Horses. My only reservation on this statement is that perhaps this is because each book had a different translator thus I'm not sure if the differences in the prose was intentional by the author or lost in translation.

Nevertheless - a book I'll be rereading.
