Babette’s Feast by Karen Blixen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The story and the language (translation) are so quaint.

As it such a short story, it would be difficult to summarise and add detail to the publisher’s blurb, without spoilers, so I won’t. What I would say, though, is that this is a book that I could read several times, and learn something new each time. You know how it is when you view a detailed oil painting for the tenth time, and notice something that you’ve never seen before? Well, this is the equivalent in book form.

Watch out for a lesson in grace.

This book is almost guaranteed to be different to anything that you have ever read before. Try it for yourself.
