If there’s one thing I learned from this challenge, it’s that books in translation are actually a lot easier to come across than might be expected–and also much more easier to read, though that depends on the author.
Here are the six books I completed for Lost in Translation, with links to my reviews:
- Detective Story, by Imre Kertész (Hungarian)
- Invisible Cities, by Italo Calvino (Italian)
- Murder On the Eiffel Tower, by Claude Izner (French)
- The Yellow Dog (Inspector Maigret),by Georges Simenon (French)
- The Paris Enigma, by Pablo de Santis (Spanish)
- Roseanna, by Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö (Swedish)
This is the original post in which I listed my planned books. I changed quite a bit, but I realized I especially enjoyed reading foreign mysteries, and comparing them to the standard American or British fare.
Thanks again to Fran for hosting this challenge!
