La Kohn

Goodbye wonderful Ayara Kamala, lazy days by the pool, cocktails, fruit plates and good reads, now I’m just about to run to the gate for my flight to Bangkok and then heading for next destination, Laos, see you there!

Oh btw, these books are great reeds if you haven’t already read them, in my opinion Coelho’s books are absolutely fantastic, that should be elementary in school, thank you little sister for these gifts, I’m ashamed I haven’t read them earlier.
Headhunter by Jo Nesbo is a must by a Norwegian writer if you like more action, will definitely run out and get the DVD as soon as I get home.

    I love your blog but I disagree about Coelho. Please don’t say these should be elementary in school…

    I agree with Anna, your blog is absolutely fantastic but Paolo Coehlo writes really bad books…

    I am a bookworm but Coelho has never appealed to me. What he writes just seems too obvious….but hey, we are all different. Look forward to seeing more pics of you in Asia!

    Hedvig, please. You are a fashion blogger, and I like your style but don’t try to blog about books, you obviously do not know anything about literature. Coelho’s books are awful.

    Reply to Ferial, not that I really need to reply to this comment but with all due respect I feel like making a few points clear.

    As for the content on my blog there are no limitations, which was pretty much the idea when I started it. I’ve always kept my honest opinion of whatever I feel like writing about, fashion or not, I’m an independent blogger and needless to say I can write pretty much about whatever I want on my own blog.

    It’s great to be acknowledged as a fashion blogger, but luckily I possess other interests in life as well than my passion for fashion. Literature is amongst them, I’m academically educated, and have read enough worldwide literature of various fields and have enough literal depth to state my own personal opinion. I’m not trying to run up for a book review position, I simply wanted to share my personal good reads with those of my readers who would be interested.

    I’m fully aware of the controversy and criticism of Coelho’s books, and could have chosen, just to be on the “safe side”, not to mention them here, but I chose to. Having that said I don’t expect everyone to share my point of view, I fully respect others differences in opinions on his books as I’m stating mine.

    Hi Hedvig, I’m from Brazil and love visiting your blog.
    Paulo Coelho’s book aren’t my choice even in Portuguese, mine and the author’s mother language. However, he introduced thousands of people in literature in my country, which stills suffer with illiteracy. And has a seat among the immortals at the Brazilian Academy of Letters. I’m glad that he helped put us on the map and is very successful.
    The beauty of your blog is your own free choices! Keep going, girl!

    Hi Hedvig, I just want to say that normally, I don’t really pay too much attention to other people’s comments, nor do I really write them. (Unless it’s yours!) but I was offended by ferial’s comment and just wanted to say you handled that very well. (I am too passionate and too fiery, to write so eloquently, if someone insults my intelligence.) I am also an academic, University educated in London and I work in the Film Industry, (with some of the biggest Actors in England and US). I love fashion, it’s one of my many many passions. Others include English, American, African and Russian Literature, Plays, Theatre, Film, Antiques and Modern Art. Just because we blog about fashion doesn’t mean our minds our that limited. Fashion is a vehicle for us to express our creativity and allows us to interpret colour texture and design in our own unique way.

    Any purveyor of fashion will know that! P.S I love The Alchemist. It was one of the best books I have read and I have read HUNDREDS of books. Lots of love to you x
