To trzecia książka Axelsson, którą czytam. Odnajduję podobną konstrukcję znana mi z jej poprzednich powieści. Losy dwóch pokoleń szwedzkiej rodziny przedstawione równolegle obok siebie.

Relacje z najbliższą rodziną, relacje które ukształtowały bohaterów. Po przeczytaniu "Lód i Woda" myślałam przez dłuższy czas, jak często bywamy siebie niepewni i j...more
I love this book, the slow pace and the melancholy poetic rhythm of the story that never really reaches its ending making me realise that I just have to see the Arctic beauty...
I think other books from Majgull Axelsson I've read were better. Maybe she went into amount of pages, cause April Witch has half less pages than this book. Weird.
I am reading the dutch translation of this book. Only just started but liking it already, reading Scandinavian authors feels like coming home...
This remained a good read, highly recommended!
This detective story was not to my taste, I did not like the style of reading and I must admit that I skipped pages so I would get trough teh book faster.
Helt okej bok. Men den fastnar inte riktigt. Lämnar inga spår efter sig, men gick fort att läsa och driver hela tiden läsaren framåt i rask takt.
I found this book a bit slow, especially the part which is situated in the present.
