's review

it was ok

I’m a great fan of Knausgaard’s My Struggle series. I enjoy his obsession with detail, the recounting of every action, every mood, every event. The slightest of trivia. But I found Summer, one of his quartet of seasons books, too episodic. It’s the sustained narrative I enjoy in My Struggle but here I couldn’t relate to his random approach. The book is a mix of diary entries, mini-essays, reflections and meditations, some quite interesting after a fashion, but tedious in the aggregate. Not for me, this one.
