    PDF Oddný Eir ¹ ¹ Jarðnæði Epub à jarðnæði ebok, Jarðnæði KindleThis was a very Icelandic read It had the very Nordic sense of the sky being a bit higher and the wind being raw than say in Italy I'm not sure I actually understood this book at least it had layers that remained unfolded Still I found it very enjoyable and it gave me a lot to think about

    PDF Oddný Eir ¹ ¹ Jarðnæði Epub à jarðnæði ebok, Jarðnæði KindleIt's hard to give this stars or comment on the plot because there really isn't one Read the blurb closely before choosing this it is philosophical than character driven and there certainly is some sort of new language I tried really hard because I have been to Iceland and have read other Icelandic literature but I just found this really hard Thanks to edelweiss for the ARC You will like this if you are open to new types of literature and are familiar with the uirks of a translated book

    PDF Oddný Eir ¹ ¹ Jarðnæði Epub à jarðnæði ebok, Jarðnæði KindleI'm enjoying this literary fiction set in Iceland and England The author Oddny Eir is new to me She structures her novel in the shape of a travel diary However she's not on an action adventure but or less contemplating the environmental fate of Iceland and other Nordic countries or reflecting on icons of her country's past It has been a slower read for me because of the numerous details in each chapter Don't be fooled by the thinness of the novel It is euivalent to one of those art films by old time French directors where a camera lens lovingly travels over a face for ten minutes Anyway there is a lot here for your soul to drink in
