Some time ago I wrote about a challenge my Indonesian friend, Ren, held. It was “What’s in a Name Reading Challenge 2014” challenge. A challenge to read books with the title using the name of a character.
I decided to go for the lowest level of it – which was 3 to 5 books. And now I see I made a good decision. It was hard for me during those 3 months when it lasted read more books fulfilling the requirements. I joined too many challenges.
The list for the “What’s in a Name Reading Challenge 2014”:
- Zaremba, or the Love and the Rule of Law by Michelle Granas. A romance & politics mix in modern Warsaw. Read in February 2014.
- Adam Kłakocki and His Shadows by Ihar Babkou. A mix of dreams and reality in Belarus. Read in February 2014.
- Z Elwirą u wód by Miroslav Kapek. A satire on Czechs set mainly in one of the sanatoriums. Elwira is the main character’s fiancée. A very funny book and greatly written. Read in March 2014.
- Minehava for the Second Time by Josef Nesvadba. Plots of his short stories revolves about psychiatry and machines influencing emotions. “Minehava” is a character from a book by Eduard Štorch, and became a nickname for one of the patients in those stories. Very good book, not only for the fans of science fiction. Read in March 2014.
