Book Review: “Beneden de zeespiegel” by Steven Stupp
The book Beneden de zeespiegel (literally translated: Underneath the sea level) tells us the story of Steven Stupp. He moved to the Netherlands immediately after finishing University in the US, and in this book he tells us about the cultural shock which he experienced. He also tells us about what he got to know about this small country and her inhabitants.
Every chapter in the book tackles a new side of his findings, multiple times supported by one or more of his experiences. The story tells us about how he got accustomed to his new life overseas. He both criticizes and admires the Dutch community. Also, he compares the US and the Netherlands a lot, concluding that both countries could learn from one another.
