Impressions from the reading life

#TBRTakedown 3.5 day 2

Dantons Tod - Georg Büchner

Day 2 of the TBR Takedown readathon is almost over and I've managed to read a whole book off my TBR!


I made my way through Danton's Death by Georg Büchner, a play set during the French Revolution. It didn't grip me, I enjoyed the mostly original speeches by Robesspierre & Co., though. Also, Büchner's open construction of the drama make it more interesting, there are scenes involving random people talking about the revolution in one way or another.
