The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 831/4 Years Old

The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 831/4 Years Old

“God save me from perfect strangers who feel obliged to chat with us and so transparently barrage us with feigned interest. Loneliness can sometimes feel even worse when you’re with other people.”
Hendrik Groen, The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen



I have just finished reading this diary. I loved it.   It made me think what I want of life when old.

    1. dear Mali, I am glad you will read it as well! I loved the main character a lot. He doesn't have any children (his only child died when few years old) so he doesn't have any visitors. And yet he manages to find happiness in small things.
