I believe we shape our lives ourselves at any rate I have shaped mine for what it’s worth and I take complete responsibility But of all the places I might have moved to I had to land up precisely hereI’m a sucker for these self reflective sort of novels where the narrator looks back on his or her life and we as readers have the opportunity to make that journey as well I’m also crazy about subtle language that in its simplicity still manages to deliver a powerful punch to the reader’s gut Author Per Petterson sure seems to have a gift and I adored the writing in this gorgeous piece of Scandinavian literature Trond Sander now in the twilight of his years at the age of sixty seven has decided to move into a small house in eastern Norway where he plans to live out his days in isolation An unexpected encounter with another man triggers a flood of memories from Trond’s past The story alternates between the end of the millennium to 1948 where at the age of fifteen he spent the summer living in a cabin with his father during tree felling season In some ways this is a coming of age tale though by no means is it a young adult story There perhaps comes a time in our lives when we recognize the fact that our parents are not perfect human beings What do we do with this information There are exuisite passages about regret grief bitterness sensual desire abandonment friendship and aging Time is important to me now I tell myself Not that it should pass uickly or slowly but be only time be something I live inside and fill with physical things and activities that I can divide it up by so that it grows distinct to me and does not vanish when I am not lookingThis novel also beautifully illustrates the link between individuals and the natural world The feeling of vitality that working with the land and the river can instill in a person is juxtaposed with the apprehension of facing a harsh winter alone It is the summer of one’s youth when so much lies ahead and the winter of one’s maturity where all that seems to remain are the memories And when someone says the past is a foreign country that they do things differently there then I have probably felt that way for most of my life because I have been obliged to but I am not any If I just concentrate I can walk into memory’s store and find the right shelf with the right film and disappear into it and still feel in my body that ride through the forest with my fatherThis is a book you cannot read for the plot or you may be disappointed Much of what happens occurred in the past and although it is weighty stuff the story is not propelled by the action Instead it is driven by the reflections of how those things affected not just one person but a string of persons How an act reverberates across people and over a length of time Much like one tree felled by a swift strike by the ax will echo throughout the entire forest The I think about this book the I realize just how affecting it really is I read this at a time when life is becoming extremely hectic changes lie ahead hopefully all for the best I was happy to sit with a uiet novel that made me think Actually I loved this I have nothing against the face in the mirror I acknowledge it I recognize myself I cannot ask for

Review Ut og stjæle hester

Ut og stjæle hesterAget for livet hans år gammel har han flyttet ut til et lite hus ved en innsjø langt øst i landet sammen med hunden sin Hans nærmeste nabo v. What in the hell just happened here What in the hellI am completely flummoxed by my own reaction to this bookSo uick back story on this About 3 years ago I was hiding out in the kitchen at a neighbor's New Year's Eve party My husband had become trapped against the wall in the den stuck in a conversation with several other men forced to listen to a man give the play by play on how he had just tiled his floors I saw that I couldn't save my spouse so I had slipped into the kitchen unseen and uickly discovered the best bottle of Pinot Noir I've ever had in my life Moments later another woman entered the kitchen with a declaration of “Bloody hell” so I poured her a glass of the precious wine Naturally she took a seat When I asked her the uestion that I ask of all normal appearing strangers “What are your top 5 books of all time” she surprised me by answering “I have only one book that I remember Out Stealing Horses It's like the best book I've ever read in my life”Out Stealing Horses Turns out it's a book written by a Norwegian author translated nicely into English and I recently found a copy at a thrift storeSo I started reading the book this week and I was almost cursing the woman from the kitchen What in the hell The beginning like almost the entire first part was totally WEIRD There is almost ZERO character development and the story is dominated by one dimensional male characters Only three women appear in the entire novel and they might as well be pet turtles or lizards they are so woefully unformed I can't even say I EVER understood the protagonist or could predict what he would do in a particular scenarioAnd did I mention that dialogue is almost non existent and is comprised of mostly a whole lot of “Yeps” and “Nopes”Oh and may I add that it contains possibly the MOST awkward “nude scene” I've ever encountered Oh yes there is a rain storm and the grown father and the almost grown son strip off all of their clothes lather up their bodies with soap and then perform handstands together in the rain For a while I've never thought about male genitalia than I did during this scene Personally I've come to think of it as a “torture scene”And let me cap off this part of my review by telling you that many MANY paragraphs are filled with very BORING descriptions of cutting down and hauling treesSoooo many things are wrong here Soooo many “kisses of death” exist here for me as a readerAnd yetAnd yet despite all of these issues this book contains some of the deepest heart achingly beautiful descriptions of aging and longing and abandonment and joy and regrets I feel like I'd need to read it at least two times to grasp what is really really wonderful hereIt's a story of an aging man and his dog who is better written than almost all of the humans and in the end it knocked me out KNOCKED ME OUT And here I am giving this weird book five stars
