I just finished reading another book by Michal Viewegh, Účastníci zájezdu (Holiday Makers). It’s one of his earlier novels (he wrote it in 1996) and it turns out to be my second most favorite book by Viewegh so far. There has been a lot of talk about Holiday Makers and the fourth edition of the book was published a few months ago, all in connection with the April release of the movie that was based on the bestselling novel. The film was entered into the Tribeca Film Festival soon after it came out and ended up receiving an award and a special mention to the ensemble cast.
I loved the book. I haven’t seen the movie and am a little reluctant to go see it because a film is rarely as good as the book it’s based on. I’m too curious to see all the characters on the screen though, so I probably won’t resist…
Hi, Thanks for keeping such an active and comprehensive blog! I always enjoy it when I stop by.
Sorry if I missed it, but what is your most favorite Viewegh novel?
Thanks for your comments. I’m glad you enjoy the blog. I like yours too.
My favorite Viewegh novel? Báječná léta pod psa (The Wonderful Years That Sucked).
