Det er noe helt spesielt med måten Johan Harstad skriver og utforsker historier på, det er noe spesielt med karakterene hans, jeg kan ikke helt forklare hva det er, men det er noe som fanger meg og som ikke gir slipp. Osv. er en roman skrevet i form av et skuespill.

If you think Third World Problems will not reach you in your cosy Western life, u are wrong and this book is a great example of it. Many great questions asked and responded in a way that forces you to think and feel. A very fast read with many intriguing characters and their stories. This book evolves around constant dialog that will make you feel the need of participation in it. And life just goes on...
