    1. Myliu šią knygą nuo 8 klasės, kai mokytoja privertė ją perskaityti. per visus šiuos metus knygą perskaičiau daugiau nei 5 kartus. Nuostabus kūrinys.


    2. Eesti keeles siis "Baltaragise tuulik", Eesti Raamat, 1979. Mõnus satanistlike elementidega psühholoogiline draama ülemöödunud sajandi Leedumaa miskist kolkast, möldrist kes mõtles et on kaval, tema kaunist tütrest, napakast peigmehest kes eelistas õunikhalle hobuseid neiule, totakast sepasulasest, eelkõige aga romaani arenedes järjest saatanlikumaks muutvast sookurat Pinčukasest, kes lõpus on juba Vana Paha ise.Romaani teeb iseäranis mõnusaks valitud vorm - psühholoogiliste keer [...]
