Uff Da

No, Really, this book took it out of me.
I loved it, but it is dense and sorrow-filled. As this book is the first of three I cannot really review it until I've finished all of them. I can say that rarely does a book get this much of a reaction from me. I started talking about Kristin Lavransdatter like she was real. I ordered the other books via Powells this week, and it will take abit for them to get here, which is good because I need a break.

What I will say it that those who enjoy historical fiction, its one of the finest accounts of life in the Middle Ages that I've read.

Connie Wow! Dense and sorrow-filled must be the Scandinavian way and explains why so many people are able to live in the shroud like weather of the Pacific Northwest.

Jason The narrative gets better and better. As a whole, it is, to my mind, one of the finest three or four novels of the 20th century.
