Sometimes I'll get to the end of a book, and I get almost nervous, worried about how it's going to end. In the best cases, this worry turns to something like relief at the last word, the conclusion exactly what I hoped it would be, which is of course something unpredictable but seemingly inevitable.

Iceland manages to maintain its endearing absurdity and slightly left of real narrative to the very last word. It's such a broad story told in almost a cursory manner. Despite its obvious existential influences, it is emotionally moving, an original look at opportunities taken and missed, and a rumination on the nature of second chances.
