å. denne boka. grytten er så FIN! For en fantasi. For en fryd å lese om disse merkelige menneskelivene. Jeg er fylt av så mange fine følelser nå. Åå. Vil lese den 10000 ganger til.

I utgangspunktet ble jeg litt skuffet, for jeg trodde dette ville være en roman i ordets ordinære forstand, men det er jo faktisk en novelistisk roman. Jeg leste nylig en novellesamling av Grytten og falt pladask, så jeg var så spent på hvordan han er i romanform. Uansett, han skriver såpass trollbindene, og konseptet var så interessant at jeg fort kom over det.

I bikubesong får vi være med på ett år i Murboligen, et arbeiderbosted i det vestnorske Odda. Hvert kapitell er livet bak en ny dør. Ro

Frode Grytten is an amazing writer, stories from the smallest and strangest villages deep in the fjords of Norway, comes short stories that grow into an ocean of a novel. There are seldom you find a language that can be compared to his voice, it's poetry of the kind that makes you smile and wonder who is Frode Grytten?. Here are references to the fantastic and most English band ever The Smiths. Morrissey wrote songs who drove teenage girls in the suburbs of Birmingham into insanity and Frode Gry ...more

jeg brukte en god stund på å lese ferdig boka, men kun fordi det var korte fortellinger. ikke fordi jeg ikke likte den. fortellingene er originale, skrullete, mystiske, rare, morsomme, forvirrende og glade. selve ideen med å fortelle historier om personene bak hver dør var fantastisk, og det kunne ikke blitt gjort på en bedre måte.

det eneste problemet jeg hadde med samlingen, var at noen av fortellingene virket unødvendige. jeg kan forstå at det kan være forfatteren ville ha det slik. men det f

Oh my, another one in nynorsk which got me into a little bit vocabulary trouble and took more time to read (but it was worth it). Nice idea of writing a book - you could call it collection of short stories if you would like, but in this case the stories are connected to each other like an invisible spider's web (you'll find some of the characters again). The center of them all is the appartment complex in Odda, and they spread around like bees around a beehive (like the title 'Beehive song' says ...more

Noen fine enkeltnoveller, men synes helheten blir litt masete.

We had to read this in my Norwegian class, and I must say, this is one of the worst books I've ever read. I didn't find it interesting at all. I guess it's just not my cup of tea. Sorry to all "Bikubesong" fans out there!

So far, so good. A bit slow, because of all the different short stories and characters.
