Stāsts par dzemdību nodaļas pacientēm, viņu cerībām un iznākumiem.
Biju gaidījusi pavisam ko citu. Romānā ir pārāk daudz varoņu, kuru likteņi un raksturi atklāti vien pavirši. Lasot, nespēju tā īsti pieķerties nevienai no varonēm, nepaspēju nevienu iepazīt. Autore sniedz domu/jūtu fragmentus, ko savilkt kopējā ainā ir ļoti grūti.
Taču vispārsteidzošākais man likās beigas, jo atrisinājumu kā tādu tā arī nesaredzēju - aprauts pusvārdā.

Ένα βιβλίο που έβλεπα συνεχώς στα βιβλία της μαμάς μου, από τη δεκαετία του 90, και επιτέλους αξιώθηκα ένα χρόνο πριν να το διαβάσω. Η ιστορία διαδραματίζεται σε ένα νοσοκομείο στη Δανία με πρωταγωνίστριες έγκυες γυναίκες που η καθεμιά κουβαλά τη δική της ιστορία. Μια ιστορία των 70's που το βασικό θέμα είναι η εγκυμοσύνη, ο τοκετός και η νέα ζωή του ζευγαριού. Δεν θα πω ότι ξετρελάθηκα διότι ούτε γυναίκα έγκυος είμαι, ούτε πατέρας, ούτε τα παιδιά είναι κάτι που θα με απασχολήσει στο κοντινό μέλ ...more

It's been awhile since I've read a feminist novel and I found Winter's Child to be particularly refreshing. Sparsely written and focused on the lives of several pregnant women in a maternity ward, Winter's Child is a unique look at the difficulties of pregnancy, birth, motherhood, and family. My only complaint is that occasionally I confused a few of the female protagonists (not usually an issue in novels), but I had a poorly formatted ebook which certainly didn't help. A great read and has aged ...more

Lidt for meget kvindeunivers og 70'er kvindekamp/Kvinde kend din krop efter min smag. Og er jeg den eneste, der synes, Dea Trier Mørchs illustrationer er både grimme og spooky? Muligvis har jeg dårlig smag, men jeg sidder og frygter for at vende siderne, fordi jeg er bange for at få smidt en udvidet skede med et barnehoved på tværs, lige i sylten på næste side. Didn't need that! Smukt sprog, men jeg er bestemt større fan af hendes andre romaner. Måske fordi jeg endnu ikke har børn og hele underl ...more

Falleg bók, fallega skrifuð og fallega myndskreytt. Full af hlýju og einhverju mjúku dönsku átakaleysi sem . Las þessa bók fyrir tvítugt og elskaði þennan kvennaheim (minn heim) sem var svo fáséður í bókmenntunum.
