It’s one of the deepest & funny presentation of🇳🇴, its people and culture. Lorelou does it gently and sophisticated at the same time as preparing any of her french dishes. If you want to learn / practice your norwegian and get to know Norway at the same time, get this book. The writing style is witty with great dose of self irony both at herself and the people. The author covers all the key ingredients of norwegian society snd equips you both with vocabulary and topics for your next conversation ...more

Denne!! Vanvittig gøy å se Norge gjennom Lorelou sine øyne. Hun har stupt uti det med alt hun kan, og jeg får nesten litt medfølelse - vi nordmenn er visst litt vanskeligere å forstå enn jeg tenkte, haha... Dette er så utrolig spot on, jeg kommer til å smile lenge av denne.

A very entertaining read, I laughed out loud a few times and shared snapshots with my friends. Comical indeed and she does warn you head on that she writes of her perspective as an outsider to the Norwegian culture. Many of her observations are common knowledge to anyone who spent over a week in Norway. I love that she was active in expiring the country because I am inspired to do more "Norwegian" things now. There are a few spots she mentioned I'd like to see. It was also lovely to hear what he ...more

Lorelou, du tar så mye på kornet! Med kjærlighet og varme, og en dose frustrasjon, viser du hvordan veien inn til norske hjerter og sinn kan være kronglete og full av uforutsette hindere. Siden vi på en måte har byttet plass, du dro til Norge samme år som jeg dro motsatt vei, nemlig til Frankrike, så var det også lærerikt for meg å få et innblikk i franske sosiale koder, som jeg ennå ikke er helt fortrolig med. Takk skal du ha!

Hadde noen morsomme partier. Alle de karikerte beskrivelsene av folk og hendelser derimot gjør boka dårlig. Det er sikkert et bevisst grep for at det skal bli morsomt og underholdende, men jeg hadde likt bedre om den hadde vært mer lærerik enn teit.

Morsomme observasjoner om hvor annerledes Nordmenn synes til sørlige utlendinger. Lett å lese og flott i den meste delen.

Lærerikt og interessant om korleis vi nordmenn er eller opplevast av andre, på ein humoristisk måte.
