    HardcoverÌ 101 Reykjavík Epub ↠ reykjavík book, 101 Reykjavík KindleI read the English translation of this book The translator Brian FitzGibbon has his name buried on the copyright page which is a shame because a novel like this has got to be a tough one to translate FitzGibbon seems to have done an admirable job but since I can hardly compare his work to the Icelandic original by Hallgrimur Helgason I can't be sureI had trouble with the first third or so

    HardcoverÌ 101 Reykjavík Epub ↠ reykjavík book, 101 Reykjavík KindleThis is possibly one of the most bizarre books I have ever read It doesn’t actually go anywhere; just details the life of an incredibly annoying moronHlynur is just awful He has no social skills no awareness of what’s going on is incredibly self centred and overall an idiot He lacks any charm to make the reader emphasise or even like him and seems mentally disturbed A lot of what he says and thinks is really uite offensive and vulgar and at times it made unpleasant reading particularly when he tries to catch aid

    HardcoverÌ 101 Reykjavík Epub ↠ reykjavík book, 101 Reykjavík KindleI am so glad this book is over The author tries far too hard to be edgy and witty There were one or two fleeting moments in the book that made me smile but these were needles in a haystack of misogynistic crap I have no idea how this book got published I would only recommend this book to somebody I despised

    HardcoverÌ 101 Reykjavík Epub ↠ reykjavík book, 101 Reykjavík KindleHelgason was the only author I couldn't interview back when I was in Iceland in 2000 so maybe that's why I never got around to reading it; or maybe its because it was the most over hyped thing ever when I was living there; or maybe because everything I ever read about it made me dislike it; or maybe because every interview with Helgason made him seem like a complete dick Anyway I've never read it but I still hate it

    HardcoverÌ 101 Reykjavík Epub ↠ reykjavík book, 101 Reykjavík KindleHlynur the novel's protagonist is healthy and intelligent enough to support himself but is so unmotivated that he prefers to live with his mother and take advantage of the welfare system He spends his days watching porn partying and chasing women assessing every female he meets based on how much he would be willing to pay to sleep with her Being an ambitious young woman who abhors misogynists I expected to hate this book based on the nature of its protagonist In the end however I loved it Author Hallgrímur Helgason skillfully crafts a character with enough depth uirks and doubts to make readers care about him enjoy sharing his encounters and acuaintances and perhaps even sympathize with him at times despite his seemingly unappealing nature Hallgrímur Helgason's distinctive style features abundant clever dialogue and odd arresting deta

    HardcoverÌ 101 Reykjavík Epub ↠ reykjavík book, 101 Reykjavík KindleWhat a ridiculous book but the way Hallgrimur Helgason plays around with words describing weather mood taste of alcohol pretty much anything is so precise and funny It's very Icelandic and dark hud story where there is not much of the story just a description of a year in a life of this 34
