About the Lord of the Rings: I'm rather unfortunate, as a Belgian. The most widely spread Dutch translation of the book is a horrid one, with barely any structure. I read about 100-200 pages of it, and its story was legendarily great, but it goes way, way too slow.
Are there any other translations in other languages that are spoken in Belgium?
I suppose it's translated to Dutch and German, but I'm not good enough at these languages to be able to enjoy long books in them. So I wouldn't know whether they're good.

So what does that make Robert De Niro?
The better actor of the two, at least in the 70s.

Taxi Driver > Serpico

I got some bad ideas in my head, Floydy.

Why not read it in English? Translations, even the good ones, can't make the work proper justice anyway.

Because I don't really feel like buying it or getting it from the library.
You're a Belgian? My father's going to Bruxelles next weekend. I've never understood Belgians. How many languages do you, people speak?
