Review: Love Again by Sofie Cramer, Translated by Marshall Yarbrough
My feelings about this one are very mixed. The story itself is an excellent one. And I loved the idea of reading a novel set in Germany. Unfortunately the novel is let down by the blunt storytelling. I am not sure if this is the fault of the original German novel or the translation or a combination of both, but the telling is incredibly blunt, shows absolutely no nuance and the wording is clumsy in places. That said, there is something delightful about a story of two deserving people who find one another in unusual circumstances. The novel has recently been made into a motion picture, which, as of mid-May 2023 is screening in cinemas across Australia.
