    One thought on “The Swan”

    1. Siamo in Islanda Una bambina di nove anni, messa in in punizione dai genitori per aver fatto piccoli furti nella sua citt , costretta a soggiornare e lavorare in campagna per un periodo imprecisato di tempo in una fattoria molto poco accogliente nell entroterra islandese Potr ritornare alla sua casa e alla sua famiglia solo quando la gente del luogo avr dimenticato i suoi piccoli misfatti ai nostri occhi assolutamente lievi La bambina, affidata a persone fredde e sconosciute e in un luogo remoto [...]

    2. Lovely writing I don t see why there aren t books translated in English or Dutch and I find it a pity The story is well described through the eyes of the young girl, sometimes disturbing but not just to provoke The book has a surreal feel to it but still it never becomes incomprehensible, I can still get into all the thoughts of the girl and the things happening except maybe the end.I can also feel a bit of Iceland through the book A strange but fascinating book that will stay with me Almost as [...]

    5. A beautiful but disturbing book seen through the eyes of an imaginitive and very unusual child The closely observed and poetically described responses to nature transform this novel into a work of art While there are some passages that are difficult to read for their cruelty or even repulsiveness, the window we have into the girl s soul is transformative.

    6. A lot odder than I was expecting A very interesting book that I think I need to reflect on before I can review it properly I see that the description describes the ending as almost surreal The almost is misleading there.

    7. ff Alltof lj r nn og tyrfinn texti fyrir minn smekk Erfitt a horfa upp essa litlu stelpu vera beitt kynfer islegu ofbeldi uppi sveit, og allt eitthva svo ge slegt Einhverjir sveittir og ge slegir menn a reita hana g skil ekki hver hefur gaman af svona b k.

    8. Icelandic author Gu bergur Bergsson offers something far from usual story of a young girl spending a summer in the country A stark existentialism weaves through his tale of a nine year old girl sent to a country farm, in a typical Icelandic stroke of justice, where she is to serve time for shoplifting None of the characters is named Our protagonist is the girl She lives on a farm with the farmer , the farmhand , the daughter , and so on.When a group of children from neighboring farms gathers to [...]

    9. There is no storyline whatsoever I wanted to do a book report on this one for school, but I m finding it hard to describe the story as there is none Nothing happened The characters don t have depth There are some moments in the book which cross the line between special and perverted The writing or at least the Dutch translation is not smooth, lose your attention for a second and you can do the page all over There have been many times in which I had to read the sentence again because I didn t fee [...]

    10. Es el segundo libro de autor island s que me he le do, y los dos tienen algo en com n la naturaleza y la muerte En este libro, ambientado en el campo, se describe la naturaleza des de la primera p gina hasta la ltoma, y la muerte es mencionada en casi todos los momentos m s perturbadores de la historia Porque la historia es perturbadora sin duda, pero est tan bien escrito que podr a estar describiendo como matan a una vaca y parecerte lo mejor que has le do en todo el a o Es un libro que sin dud [...]

    13. I am still processing this odd little cygnet of a book It is already unusual in that none of the characters have names the main character remains the Girl all the way through the book Masturbation, copulation, abortion are just a few of the things seen through the eyes of this 9 year old Very interesting, and amazing contrasts I ll be thinking about this book for a while.

    14. troppa metafora, troppa allegoria, troppe suggestioni in questo romanzo di formazione ambientato nella campagna islandese ho desiderato a lungo di leggerlo e, quando me lo sono ritrovato tra le mani, ho scoperto di non avere la chiave giusta per entrarci dentro peccato, per me il cigno non ha spiccato il volo ma un grazie all amica claudia che l ha scovato e me l ha regalato
