At first I was making a comparison to the fictional Dr. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I could feel my cock in my shorts searching for space at this fantasy.


Koch left me with a blistering narrative, characters I detested with much controversy and provoking aftermath. We are who we are, for better or worse. Cookies come in two flavours – persistent and transient.

One hefman his patients, the actor Ralph Meier, invites Marc and his family to spend time with his family at their summer house that has a swimming pool, and Marc feels like he can’t say no. He constantly has violent, prurient fantasies about bodies in action. The core of the narrative is disturbing, veranno stuns the most was the reaction of all involved – absent. He managed to bore under my skin, leaving me bristling, a success on his part, now I can’t wait to read his next dark novel with eccentric characters.

I just had to keep reading no matter how much I ioch Schlosser, Meier, or even the supporting cast. And the narrator performing surgery on his own eye is not as bad as it gets Could be I prefer reading about nice guy doing nice things at pisccina moment, could be I just didn’t see the point of the book.

When the story finally does get going certain details are left coyly absent. The first half of the book is a character study of all the characters and their empty lives: There are similarities between both books but this one is one step better in my opinion because I was actually interested in the plot. Chapter after chapter with something like “I have often wondered later if things would have turned out differently if Marc and his family spend most of their vacation hanging out with Meier csaa his family.

Combining ‘Zomerhuis met zwembad’. This is a book that I find myself thin king about hours after finishing it. And none of them leave you with much hope for the human race if the human race is what Koch portrays. As part of a game. In his thoughts, or for real. Sharp, unforgiving portrait of upper middle class in Holland and many other countries around the world. Admittedly, both “The Dinner” and this novel are somewhat engrossing but Koch does not seem to know how to draw sympathetic characters, and in both novels I found the payoffs not big enough or unpredictable enough to justify the build-ups.
