Fint skrivet om en pojke som desperat vill växa upp och hitta sin egen väg i livet. Utspelar sig under en period då samhället också led av växtvärk, från jordbruk till industri. Vi får följa med Olof på en resa genom hans egen mognad och samhällets omvälvande framfart. Blev sugen på att läsa resten av serien.

Den absolut sämsta boken jag någonsin läst. Den var långtråkig, inget hände, förvirrande och så var den väldigt seg. Detta är ingen bok jag skulle rekommendera.
