01 – Best book you read last year

I read a lot. You probably knew that already. I'm looking at my book shelf behind the and trying to remember which of all these books were *the* best. I'm going to have to go with De fattiga i Lodz. I think I've written about it before but it's such a powerful account of the holocaust, the lives of the poor in Poland and I don't know enough about the history to know how much of it is true but I will say that nothing in the book surprises me. It saddens me, but it doesn't surprise me.

It's a heavy book, partly because of the subject matter but also because it's about a billion pages long.

Read it. If it's not been translated into your language yet you'll just have to learn Swedish so you can read it.
