Why did I choose this book?

I chose The Appointment because Ms. Flynn recommended it to me and since Herta Müller won the Noble Peace Prize, I think it is a good idea to get an idea what kind of writing style receives such a honor. I also plan to read this book in German and then compare the two. Translations always seem to lose some of the original taste of the book.

Plan for Reading

I will read this book at home, on the couch, with some serious thick furry comforters and a fat cat. Most probably this book will be read by me only at night and about an hour a day (minimum).
