"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.<br>The developing relationship between these two individuals was sensitively portrayed and probably the most appealing aspect of the novel for me.<br>Not quite so keen on the whimsical inclusion of recipes etc although I know some readers do go for this sort of stuff.<br>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
