Walking is the third book in the Three Novellas collection. It's just as uncompromising, and bleak as the other two and also deals with depressing subjects. This story contains a suicide, but not as prominently as the previous story, one of the main characters goes mad and the other two characters discuss all of this while out walking.  Bernhard is no doubt insightful and does not shy away from difficult topics but he does tend to melancholy and I don't see the humour, albeit dark humour, in his work.


This one is just as outstanding as the other two, the prose is amazing (which is alone what makes it worth reading), the characters well drawn and the story believable. It's just unrelenting in it's bleak darkness and difficult to read as the prose is more formal than usual.


Nevertheless, highly recommended.
