Loe does a nimble balancing act, never coming down on one side or the other to say who's right or wrong (it has to be one of those "bit of both" situations) and using the ambiguous ...more
Nemám rád to, co dělají. Nemám rád to, jací jsou. Nemám rád to, co říkají.
Doppler neměl rád lidi, ale měl rád život.
Tak nějak mě to vrátilo k přemýšlení nad tím, jestli je člověk loser nebo unfortunate, jak to teda nazývat a jak se s tím vypořádat.
A Doppler o svém tatovi říkal Byl nepoužitelný stejně, jako je většina z nás, a v mnoha ohledech se lépe uplatní na totemu. Vlastně tak bude vzdána čest jeho nepoužitelnosti. Právě jí stavím pomník.
A hlavně by člověk neměl být moc pilný ...more

As a side note, I also enjoy the existence of penguins and giraffes, but unfortunately don't live in the latitudes where either could be spotted. We still got elks and owls though, and I'm happy with those.

After his father dies, Doppler decides, during a bicycle accident, that he hates "people" and would rather live as a vagrant in the forest. In the forest he befriends a moose calf. It's funny, for a little while.
In the first forty pages of the book, the novelty of the story kept my interest: man + moose = adorable!!! But the novelty wear's off fast. The story doesn't really grow past the concept. The ...more

i think he has only two books translated into english, but i'm not sure
i think i liked naive. super more maybe, but they are both similar i think
in 'doppler' his daughter likes 'lord of the rings' and they watch it together at the cinema and the dad says how it will be hard for saruman to rebuild his tower
it seems funny maybe
i liked this part

Madness? Or genius? As I read about Doppler's adventures, I thought either, "He has lost his mind," or "What a brilliant insight."
Doppler believes a tumble from his bicycle and a blow to his head opened his eyes to a clear-eyed, inspired view of reality. He looks back on the life h ...more

'Doppler' is the story about a man named Andreas Doppler who chooses to leave his competent and "fulfilled" life with wife and children to live in the woods with a moose, in the style of the hunter/gatherers.
'Doppler' is one of my favourite contemporary books and can be enjo ...more
Mouth and foot artists?! This kind of mumbling crazed detail is what makes the rambling prose of Doppler so delightful. Reminded me a bit of the The Year of the Hare, which I'm sure Loe knows quite well ...more

The entire thing is incredibly humourous and well written, and the plot together with the amusing descriptions really had me hooked from beginning to end
Ho finito di leggere questo romanzo di soli maschi (uomini, bimbi, alci e cani) ambientato in Norvegia (per la precisione in un bosco alla periferia di Oslo). Mi e' piaciuta la spassosa misantropia che esce dalle sue pagine (d'altronde la misantropia accomuna i misantropi...!).
Ricorda un po', alla lontana, L'anno della lepre di Arto Paasilinna. Ma Arto resta di molte spanne insuperabile e inimitabile.
L'autore, Erlend Loe, e' un 38enne di Trondheim.
