This book was hard to get through. it was a a messy compilation of stories about the author and his friends, none of which are truly interesting. In fact, most of the dialogue gives the reader a feeling of not being a part of the conversation and, instead, being an eavesdropper listening in on a scholarly talk about topic that has no intrigue.
If you enjoy listening to an author describe other works of fiction, then have pretentious conversations with his friends on these topics where everyone is an apparent expert in such topics, then this book is for you!
For everyone else looking for a truly historical background or a good cultural overview of Scandinavia, best to skip this and look for a better option.
