  • The best book Jun 21, 2011
    by ekaup

    This is simply the best book I have ever read! Even if the story takes place in a remote place close to the arctic circle it tells the story of the general desire to be free and independent, where ever they are, no matter what.

    Read Brad Leithauser's intro, he says it better than I could, but I feel the same way. This is a book that invites your affection. You are sorry when it ends, it is such a sweet sad story.
