Excerpt

zij vooraan in de kerk tusschen de notabelen van het dorp, de pastoor had hen met een bezoek vereerd, bakker, beenhouwer en winkelier waren zeer beleefd, en de melkboer en groentenvent kwamen geregeld en op tijd.

De lente was in aantocht. Overal begon het groen uit zijn zwachtels los te breken, en de fruitboomen droegen bloesem. De lucht was meestal helder, en de zon scheen zoo plezierig over de wereld. Zij schenen het alles voor den eersten keer in hun leven te mogen aanschouwen. Regen en wind kon hun stemming niet bederven, er viel nog zooveel te veranderen een t schikken, en 't werd avond vóór men 't wist. Vroeg ging men slapen, doodmoe van het bezigzijn en de zware lucht.

Reviews

Average Rating of 5 from 1 reviews: *****

An absolute masterpiece. Sharply deliniated characters, caricatures of middle-class Antwerpen, never tedious or boring for even a second, ultimate realism, people exactly as we know them in everyday life. There is not a single improbable incident in the whole book. An absolute joy to read from cover to cover. If you are Dutch, you will need a dictionary (the big van Dale will do just fine), but aside from a few specificly Flemish words, this book is highly readable and moves along a good pace.
