it was amazing
bookshelves: swedish
Read in September, 2007

It cost me a good night's sleep. I started reading it in the evening and just couldn't stop. It's not often I read a book continuously.

Manny I couldn't put it down either, but after I read Luftslottet som Sprängdes I realized that this book was really just the introduction to the third volume.

Since you're Swedish and presumably know Astrid Lindgren well, did you also think that Lisbeth was basically Pippi as she would be if she'd ever grown up? There are a lot of Pippi references. On reflection, I decided that an adult Pippi would have the same uncompromising attitude to sex as she does to everything else. I can just hear Annika now:

"Nej men Pippi, bara för att du är tänd på nån kan du inte gå och fråga dem om de vill ha sex med dig!"

"Varför inte?" svarade Pippi glatt...
