Meh. I think I've read too many of these, and the author was getting old. It's like there is no plot, and she's starting with a murder (of someone we don't know, no details, no one cares), throwing in anything she can think of to fill out the book wi...more

L'intrigue était bien, quoi que parfois décousue, et je ne savais pas trop où l'auteur voulait en venir, ou si j'étais supposée avoir compris quelque chose entre les lignes. Et j'ai DÉTESTÉ la traduction. Le premier livre de Nesbo que j'ai lu, je l'a...more

I really enjoyed Loki as a narrator, he was fun. But I think I would have enjoyed the book more if I knew a bit more of the actual myths and stories behind this novel.

Madeleine L'Engle
“When I have something to say that I think will be too difficult for adults, I write it in a book for children. Children are excited by new ideas; they have not yet closed the doors and windows of their imaginations. Provided the story is good... nothing is too difficult for children.”
Madeleine L'Engle

L.M. Montgomery
“I doubt if I shall ever have time to read the book again -- there are too many new ones coming out all the time which I want to read. Yet an old book has something for me which no new book can ever have -- for at every reading the memories and atmosphere of other readings come back and I am reading old years as well as an old book.”
L.M. Montgomery, The Selected Journals Of L.M. Montgomery, Vol. 3: 1921-1929

Curtis Sittenfeld
“I always worried someone would notice me, and then when no one did, I felt lonely.”
Curtis Sittenfeld, Prep

Eoin Colfer
The Hitchhiker's Guide is a hundred percent accurate. Reality, however, is not as reliable.”
Eoin Colfer, And Another Thing...

Curtis Sittenfeld
“... nothing broke my heart like the slow death of a shared joke that had once seemed genuinely funny.”
