Ellinor's Litventures

This blog is about my literary adventures in different genres. I like variety in my reading and will read books from most genres but particulary book with some literary merit.

#BookADayUK - Day 23: Favourite Prize-Winning Book

Tschick - Wolfgang Herrndorf

Very often I'm no fan of prize-winning novels, especially here in Germany. But there are a few exceptions and Tschick is one of them. It is an unusual coming of age book. The character Tschick reminded me a lot of Boris in The Goldfinch (that book I found rather mediocre but Boris I loved). Sadly the author suffered from a brain-tumor and so we won't see a lot more of his writing.
