    One thought on “The Swordfish”

    1. Volgens mij het eerste wat ik van Claus lees, en het viel me erg tegen. Maar ik vertrouw erop dat hij niet voor niets zo gelauwerd is en ben nog vol goede moed. Vol goede moed op naar het volgende!

    2. This novella by an acclaimed Flemish novelist was the 'Book Week Gift' in 1989, given away for free by Dutch booksellers. There are a lot of interesting things going on: Sybille, a woman whose husband has left her for reasons at first unclear but later revealed in a surprising way; her son, Maarten, who has been raised as a 'free thinker' but has become obsessed with Jesus to the point of hauling a large cross around the yard and refusing to eat Jewish food because he blames the Jews for Jesus's [...]

    3. With ten or so pages to go, I thought it was a pretty bad book, but also just crazy enough to like its characters. It is probably one of those short books that give our free national Bookweek gifted books a bad reputation; it has some humour though, which make it worth it to read the full ninety-five pages till the end, as long as you don't care too much about actual plot. Two stars for the humour and for the style of sentences, who reveal a better writer able of writing better books than this o [...]

    4. Ik heb niks met 'godsdienstproza', of dat nu in protestantse vorm gebracht wordt door Jan Siebelink of in een katholieke mal gegoten is door Tom Lanoye of in dit geval Hugo Claus. De zwaardvis zit vol met verwijzingen naar religie en godsdienstwaanzin, alsook de Romeinse klassieken. Dat alles maakt deze novelle nogal vol - te vol, overlopend van symboliek en mythische patronen. Ook de personages konden mij niet boeien.

    5. Although you sense from the moment you start reading that someone is gonna die, the story has been almost told before you find out who it is. An exciting, well-told story with a surprising twist at the end. I enjoyed reading it very much.
