In conjuction with the Theme of Nation building in our Norwegian class (Mandatory Mother tongue class), we were incouraged to read a work by one of the main campiagners for Norway's independence during that time. We ended up with this excerpt from the original Bondefortellinger.

The language is best described as Norwegian with a bit of an old fashioned sentence structure and a lot of old fromulations and words that are not used frequently by our generation. If one is fluent in Norwegian, it is no

Jeg ser det er mange som ikke liker denne noe videre, og jeg kan saktens forstå det. Synnøve Solbakken er ei fin, men ikke veldig actionfylt roman, som for dagens lesere også kan være ganske tung å lese. Enkelte steder er det vanskelig å følge med for en travel leser, særlig hvis du hører den på lydbok, slik som meg. Likevel syns jeg det er en god bok, og ikke minst en god representant for den typisk norske nasjonalromantiske litteraturen.
Jeg knyttet meg til disse to ungdommene, og jeg følte med

2.4 stars, maybe??

I don't know what to think about this book, since I didn't understand everything that was written (it's a slightly different version of my language), so some of the content was lost to me...

Syntes karakterene var litt kjedelige, spesielt Synnøve som nesten bare grein. Det var ikke så mye dybde i fortellingen. Historien var heilt okay å lese.

Jag gillade den här. Både språket och handlingen. Det var några saker som var oklara och inte riktigt hängde ihop. Men annars en mycket fin och lågmäld historia som ändå blev engagerande.

Straszne. Strasznie napisane (przetłumaczone?). Nie.

A very pleasant read. Simple yet divine. A peek into human nature and a wonderful painting of Scandinavian life in the 1800's. Thoroughly enjoyed Bjornson's style that I picked up a copy of Captain Mansana at Powell's this past week.

czysta magia. ksiązka z dzieciństwa, czyli okresu, kiedy wizualizacje tekstu nie były zazwyczaj zniekształcone przez racjonalną myśl. od 10 lat boję się jej dotknąć, aby nie zakłócić pierwszego wrażenia, ale nawet dziś mogę wam ją opowiedzieć. albo raczej namalować. obraz po obrazie, z perspektywy solbakken, czyli słonecznego wzgórza.

Bjørnson har merkelig syntaks, tar med en del merkelige detaljer, og er ellers uklar ofte synes jeg. Historien er heller en platt kjærlighetshistorie uten særlig dybde. Hvis en tar seg god tid og leser mer i dybden er det kanskje en god bok, men den var for kronglete for meg til å kunne nyte den slik.

Only interesting as an insight into peasant life in the 19th century in Norway.
