Lucky Per (Lykke-Per)

It is my favorite novel, it is a long Bildungsroman and a nice and interesting view af a time and a place and a city, Kopenhagen. You can find this book in English.
/Peter-Paul Dirickx, Belgium
It describes the inner evelution of a man on the edge of Modern Times (1860-1900), his liberation from a Christian background into a modern way of life as an ingeneer of great skills. Then his regression to fundamental values and his life as a hermit. A happy ending! A novel inspired by Nietzsche and Schopenhauer. A Masterpiece!
/Morten Sebber, Denmark
This book describes the emotional war going on in the mind of a young man who is trying to find his place in this world.
