Der GlücklicheDer Glückliche by Hansjörg Schertenleib

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

"The Happy Man" drew me in with book jacket copy stating that Schertenleib was on a mission to write compellingly about a happy person.


This novella is decidedly /not/ happy.

I really enjoyed it until the end ... which made all of it ... not worth it. Very disappointed. It had such potential. I'm all for the German gothic ideal, but to tell me I'm reading a happy book, and then squash me like a bug at the end? Not cool Mr Schertenleib. Not cool at all. Boo.

In other news? I miss all my extra icons ... esp Calvin & Hobbes. I stopped paying for LJ, b/c all I was paying for were the icons at this stage. But now I'm kinda sad. SHould have tried to save them ... I'm a dork.
