"Quirky and unusual…"
I didn't know what to expect when starting this book .. I'm unfamiliar with Iceland and have read a bit of Scandi crime .. that's about it. So it was interesting to pick up an impression of the country as the narrator goes on a circular tour with her friend's small son.
The developing relationship between these two individuals was sensitively portrayed and probably the most appealing aspect of the novel for me.
Not quite so keen on the whimsical inclusion of recipes etc although I know some readers do go for this sort of stuff.
Would I read another book by this author? Yes, I probably would.Read moreLess
"Funny, strange and compelling…"
Loved the way this book portrayed Iceland - a mix of snow, overalls, hot-dogs and sex - the perfect backdrop to this dreamy saga.Read moreLess
