really liked it

I read this in Norwegian, as it is closer to the original Danish, to see if Kierkegaard was easier to "get" that way. In some way he is, but the language is still pretty complex. Maybe it is just the way he writes, the words he uses, and how he constructs the argument, but it does not all fly with me. It seems like so much is just irrelevant, and then he loses my interest until he catches it again. Well, anyway, this book is rather good in its own since - it is a theological, philosophical and psychological treatise into anxiety, a topic not very much discussed before him. Kierkegaard begins in Genesis and the fall, and extract from there the origins of this state of mind that both leads to sin and stays thereafter.
