really liked it
bookshelves: fiction
Read from November 03 to 06, 2011

A good balance between bitterness and humor, and more sex than I was expecting for a novel written in 1890 - those Norwegians were way ahead, I guess.

The ending is not very interesting or satisfying but this book, much like life, is about the journey.

(I read the 1921 translation by George Egerton, er, uh, Mary Chavelita Dunne Bright)
