A quiet, powerful novel

by greebs on May 15, 2009

This story about a Norwegian man looking back on his life is almost sneakily wonderful; I was halfway through it before I realized how invested I was. Petterson's prose reminds me of Wallace Stegner in its simple elegance which is about as high praise as I can give. The story itself is about loss, and loneliness and families falling apart - towards the end, the story ended up being just shy of fully satisfying, but it's a truly special novel that is well deserving of all the praise it has gotten.

Slow

I did not like it, read it for a book club. Reaction there was mixed. Too much Norway woods, though it did have a very subtle point to make about loyalty.
