This book made me want to be icelandic, or at least have a really good friend that lives there and lets me stay the summers.

The writting, the voice, the pauses, the rhythm, I am not sure what the proper term is, but whatever IT is, it is different in this book. Good different, interesting different. It took me a chapter or two to find my bearings in reading the story, but I am so glad I continued. Sorry if this sounds silly, but sometimes I felt like I was reading english for the first time. How cool, after reading thousands of books, a writer can make my own language seem new to me. I only give is four out of five stars, because the ending didn't quite live up to its beginings.

Read this book, don't give up in the begining. I will wait impatiently for more from this author.
