Ok, først av alt.. Jeg ser hvorfor folk liker denne boka. Jeg skjønner sjarmen, underholdningsverdien og humoren.

Etter et par historier virker alt så likt, og det ble bare litt for (i mangel på et bedre ord) teit for meg. All ære til Østby som klarer å skrive så mange løgner, med så overbevisende detaljer. Men dette var ikke for meg.

From the moment I picked it up to the moment I put it back down, I was constantly torn between loving it and hating it. It is a book full of wit and entertaining stories.

Hadde fryktelig høye forventninger til denne. På en måte var den akkurat slik jeg trodde den skulle være. Et leksikon om lengsel. På en annen måte ble den til tider litt platt. Er kjærlighet = sex? Er lengsel kun begjær? Til tider både morsom og sår, mens andre ganger rett og slett litt platt og teit.

Jeg er litt usikker på hva jeg kan si om denne, annet enn at den er noe av det mest fornøyelige jeg har lest på lenge. Hilde Østby juger så det renner av henne, og hun gjør det med glans. Jeg elsker det. Alle som har sansen for litteratur og kulturelle referanser (og hvilken boknerd har ikke det?) burde gyve løs på denne fortere enn svint.

“Om fundamentet for dette forehavendet, altså antagelsen om at det finnes kjærlighet (eller er det egentlig bare et ønske om reproduksjon?) å lengte etter, er å anse som en like delirisk vrangforestilling som den jevne troendes grafsing etter mening i Bibelen, gripen etter et svar i Koranen, klamring til scientologenes skrifter, det kan ikke redaksjonen avgjøre, men den kommer like fullt til å reflektere over det, og samtidig legge all tvil på bordet.” 0 likes
