  2. I wrote the careful, analytical review below, and then I thought this is all wrong I am willfully misunderstanding the book What makes it unusual, almost unique, is the very personal relationship it establishes with the reader It is like a teacher, or a lover it is about how imagination and art and love can change your life Also, it is about how you can t reduce life to abstract schemas You have to use fantasy and intuition to find the special detail which illuminates the whole Writing a I wrote ...

  3. Only a man would write a book where the main character has a magic penis and includes a female character that spends her life obsessed with all things phallic You boys really think you hold the key to the universe between your legs don t you With that aside this was a wonderful story I will leave the dissection of its qualities to othersarticulate than myself We ve all heard it before so I will spare you the deep analysis This Norwegian I m 5 8 was part of the original conversion th Only a man would write a book where the main character has a magic penis and includes a female character that spends her life obsessed with all things phallic You boys really think you hold the key to the universe between your legs don t you With that aside this was a wonderful story I will leave the dissection of its qualities to othersarticulate than myself We ve all heard it before so I will spare you the deep analysis This Norwegian I m 5 8 was part of the original conversion that took place with Manny s review last April and completely agree with his summation Kjaerstad is a masterful storyteller that gently guides you through only allowing you enough information to keep you going Like a true seducer he knew when to give you what you wanted and when to hold it back ...

  4. I don t know what to say about this book I don t know if I should even be rating it yet I feel like I m only a third of the way through a novel having finished this, that the next two novels not so much being a trilogy are going to comprise a finished work Sort of like a piece of classical music, sure you can listen to just a part of a Wagner opera and enjoy or not enjoy it, but you can t see the whole genius of what is going on by just listening to one movement of the entire work I don t wa I don t know what to say about this book I don t know if I should even be rating it yet I feel like I m only a third of the way through a novel having finished this, that the next two novels not so much being a trilogy are ...

  5. is a very long book and it is quite amazing to me that any one writer can have this much life experience and still be capable of telling about it And keep it interesting Even if research offered the many historical facts adjusted as fiction and presented as anecdotes I would still find it remarkable that Jan Kj rstad could actually pull it off as well as he did It is a long life story of Norwegian TV celebrity Jonas Wergeland told in circles and re is a very long book and it is quite amazing to me that any one writer can have this much life experience and still be capable of telling about it And keep it interesting Even if research offered the many historical facts adjusted as fiction and presented as anecdotes I would still find it remarkable that Jan Kj rstad could actually pull it off as well as he did It is a long life story of Norwegian TV celebrity Jonas Wergeland told in circles and repeats, ending at a certain point...

  6. Additional thoughts towards the end.I wish I could give this six stars.Before I start The ConquerorOne of the aspects of current literary fashion which has me somewhat confounded is the pejorative way in which sentimentality is viewed If only I had a dollar for every discussion of literature which compliments a writer or a book for not being s...
