William Somerset Maugham

The Moon and Sixpence

7.0
Lasot šo romānu, kādā brīdī secināju, ka patiesībā to kaut kad iepriekš jau biju lasījis, bet acīmredzami pietiekami sen, lai ļoti vāji atcerētos tā saturu, tā ka priekšzināšanas mani šajā romānā īpaši netraucēja.

Then and Now

7.0
Viljams Somersets Moems bija viens no divdesmitā gadsimta lasītākajiem, ja ne pats lasītākais angļu rakstnieks, taču tikai retais viņu sauc arī par vienu no izcilākajiem literātiem. "Tad un tagad" tikām ne tuvu nav viens no vislasītākajiem un zināmākajiem viņa darbiem, un arī es to nelasīju, gaidot kaut ko šedevrālu. Un nesagaidīju.
