Castorp by Paweł Huelle

SHORTLISTED FOR THE INDEPENDENT FOREIGN FICTION PRIZE 2008 Picking up on a throwaway line in Thomas Mann’s The Magic Mountain Castorp tells the story of Hans Castorp’s student years in Gdansk long before the adventures in Davos described in Thomas Mann’s novel Pawel Huelle skilfully creates a credible scenario. I love Hans Castorp earnestness I loved the uirky Frau Hildegarde Wybe I could picture the suared away and always appropriate Hans suddenly in very awkward situations The only reason I didn t love the book was that I was looking for something pointedly about the pre WWI stirrings and I didn t pick up on any until the last 20 or so pages Still a really wonderful book

    I love the way Huelle perfectly captures the language and setting of a lot of early modern fiction You could have passed this book off as another Mann the story is based on a minor character from The Magic Mountain A critic's review on the jacket was good enough to repeat the scenes of the book are all pretty
