    One thought on “Kennis van die Aand”

    1. This book was included in the literature program in highschool. I found it a fascinating read, with a wealth of allusions to other works. I annoyed my class mates by knowing the literature references in this book too well, I was well-read already by that age. Despite this, I don't think I really understood where this book came from them. I should read it again.

    2. This book was prescribed reading for us in my third year at varsity but because of the highly critical nature of the book on the Apartheid government as well as it's fairly explicit sexual scenes (across the colour line as well, a mortal sin then), it was banned. So we could only read it in a little glass enclave in the library with the highly suspicious librarian peering over your shoulder. I remember being very upset by parts of the book and the daring sexual exploits were enough to turn any y [...]

    3. I adore Brink. But do confess I liked this book the least of the ones I've read thus far. It is interesting to see what time does to a piece of "contemporary literature." The ability to shock, as he himself illustrates in this very book, lessens unless the horrors have increased. I picked this book up because it still has the warning pasted in the inside that no persons under 18 can check it out. Now, with the TRC committee and all the stories pouring out since - the book, while still horrifying [...]

    4. Luin tätä tasan kuukauden, mutta hidasta edistymistä ei voi selittää kirjan huonoudella tai tylsyydellä. Katson pimeään on vaikuttava kertomus apartheidin aikaisesta Etelä-Afrikasta, mahdottomasta rakkaudesta ja intohimosta teatteriin. En yhtään ihmettele, miksi Brink on ollut kolmesti ehdolla Nobelin kirjallisuuspalkinnon saajaksi - enkä myöskään sitä, että Katson pimeään kiellettiin Etelä-Afrikassa vuonna 1973.

    5. I found this very difficult to read and read it very slowly in small chunks. It was extremely grim. Not only does it describe the terrible things that happened in South Africa, but it also shows how a wicked society affects the development of the main protagonist. The intensity and inevitability are hard to take. It would be worth re-reading.

    6. I am the biggest Brink Fan on the planet. He is my favourite author so I am biased with all of his work. Don't expect a balanced review from me.As with all Brinks work the backdrop is apartheid South Africa and the stuggles of white and black alike.

    7. A classic. Was banned in South Africa, it is the story of a black actor who killed his white lover and is now awaiting trial. The story has a political viewpoint, a tragic tale.

    8. This is an extraordinary book - powerful, moving, intelligent, beautifully written. About 40 years since it was written, and with the apartheid regime gone, it stills hits you in the guts.

    9. The title is in fact Looking ON Darkness. I've nothing particular to add as I can't quite remember which one this is!
