Himnaríki og helvíti (2007)
language
English
4.17 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Such a strange, beautiful book. Halldór Laxness meets Dylan Thomas via fairy tale. A hymn to the constantly shifting scale of heavenly and hellish experience immanent to the expanse of human life. Its rhythms match those of the Icelandic landscapes, which are inseparable from the...

review 1: I had never heard of Jon Kalman Stefansson & what a loss that lacuna in my recognition was. For 99% of this story, the author's true-to-life story reverberates with unanswered questions about purpose in life & about sin's value in a full life. The story's told from the vantage ...

review 1: Himmel och helvete är en fantastisk bok som får mig att vilja läsa med överstrykningspenna och santeckningsbok. Meningarna är oemotståndliga, de är poesi och de rymmer ett helt liv. Boken är enkel men en av de djupaste jag någonsin läst. Pojken, är en isländsk fiskare för en sådä...

review 1: This book is the first of three which will encompass the whole story, but it can be read alone. On it's own it's a coming-of-age story about an orphan who loses his only friend as a result of the friend's tragic moment of distraction over the beauty of a book. As a big reader I...

review 1: I libri di Stefánsson non finiscono, muoiono. Ho una grande passione per questo scrittore. Arrivato alla fine mi è sembrato come se qualcuno fosse morto, sparito, avesse cessato di vivere. Anche ogni piccolo personaggio che appare giusto mezza pagina per voltare l'angolo di una ...
Harmur englanna (2009)

review 1: One of the still too few Icelandic books I've read and though my mother had some words to say about it I still conclude it to be worthy of being placed among my favorites. Not only does the book speak a lot about poetry and books in the middle of nothingness, it is like a poem in...
La tristezza degli angeli (2009)
language
English
4.22 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Título péssimo, a alegoria que o justifica, ainda pior. Contudo, o resto é bastante bom. Para quem achou o primeiro livro da trilogia nada de especial (até à chegada do rapaz à aldeia), este segundo volume melhora substancialmente a envolvência na Islândia do séc. XIX. Esta seque...

English

review 1: "Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that wil...
