    1. Sanura on said:

      This is the story of an older Somali Norwegian couple who take in their deceased son s wife and stepchildren, and this story follows these characters as they acclimate to Norway and their new family This book was tough to rate because on one hand, I enjoyed the story but on the other hand, this novel was written in a way that kept me from finding a rhythm and being fully invested The language felt convoluted in spots, the POV changed in an instant without warning, and the passage of time in th T [...]

    6. Peter on said:

      Why is the dialogue in Farah s novels so stiltedly formal Is it based on Somali and also, in this case, Norwegian speech patterns Is it a kind of alienation effect, reminding us that these are authorial creations, a set of points of view put into conversation with each other But they certainly draw us in nonetheless I enjoyed this book far, far than I did Hiding in Plain Sight For me, there s far dramatic tension, and it s a much interesting investigation of the politics an Why is the dialogue i [...]
