Book Review - The Dinner by Herman Koch

The DinnerThe Dinner by Herman Koch
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book. I don't want to give any spoilers, but it definitely surprised me as characters revealed themselves.  STOP READING if you haven't read it but want to!

My mom recommended this book to me. Or rather, I wanted to check off my 2015 list of "A book your mother loves."  Ends up it was originally written in a foreign language, which is another 2015 category. So I'll probably read another book that my mom loves and count this book under the foreign category.

Anyway, this book started out clever and funny. Which was enough to keep me reading.

Then, it gets dark.  Characters who before simply seemed private (or public with a private side) begin to become more obviously horrible people.

Excellent reading experience!
