In seinem vielumjubelten Debütroman "Die Ritter der runden Treppe" erzählt Einar Már Gudmundsson von einer Kindheit in Island, die so wunderlich sein kann und doch so exemplarisch. Jóhann Pétursson kann sich besseres vorstellen, als erwachsen zu werden. Aber man läßt ihm ja keine Wahl. Ein Buch vom Staunen über die Welt - und über die schmerzliche Erkenntnis, daß auch ...more

Recommends it for: Everyone
Shelves: scandinavie
The edition is a bit strange, with the pink paper... but it isn't troubling, I think. Pink is certainly a bit energizing, as red. It arises a childish energy! Which is natural: it's a story told by a young boy - 6 or 7 old. 3 days full of adventures of his life, : a birthday, games, etc.
And the novel is lovely. There's something special in icelandic litterature. A freshness, a simple, light and frank tenderness. It's exotical in a very intimate way. Poetical. A delightfull companion.

Ensireaktioni:
En muista mitään. Mistä tämä kertoi? Pitääkö tämä lukea uudestaan vai oliko tämä huono.

Sitten...
Aaah, vasara. Niin ja ne juhlat. Ja niin edelleen.
Senkin pikku vintiöt!

Tämä tarina oli sekä sydäntälämmittävä että hulivili-hullunkurinen.
Voi niitä poikakultia.
