really liked it
Read in January, 2006

I enjoyed the stark simplicity of the landscape the author draws for the reader. This is a rags to riches story set in the harsh realities of Northern Europe. I imagine the protagonist to be an ogre of a man, but very tender and loving as well. This book made me want to travel back in time to a simpler and harder sort of life.
