    Kindle Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir µ µ Afleggjarinn Kindle Ï afleggjarinn ebok, Afleggjarinn PDFThe story sounded promising and I started the novel eager to enter the world of what seemed a special young man who had recently lost his mother in a car accident become a father with a girl he barely knew and who escaped Iceland to live in a monastery to rebuild an ancient glorious rose garden But as I swallowed chapter after chapter I couldn’t uite conceive that the same author of “Miss Iceland” could create such a small minded character I was particularly annoyed by the way he referred to women as a group and reached the most cliched and even infantile conclusions ever about their behaviour and reactions I expected to witness a journey to maturity and read a boneless narration instead with little interest other than the varieties of roses he used to the reconstruct the garden the occasional evocative description of the uiet

    Kindle Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir µ µ Afleggjarinn Kindle Ï afleggjarinn ebok, Afleggjarinn PDFI'm a little obsessed with Iceland It's a gorgeous country and produces some amazing literature Bragi Olafsson's The Pets ranks among my favorite books of all time so I was thrilled when I came across Au∂ur Ava Olafsdottir's The Greenhouse; it's not every day that an English translation of a contemporary Icelandic literary title comes my way This is a uiet novel written in a crisp and direct style in that way it reminds me of Murakami though the comparison ends there Lobbi is a young man in his early twenties struggling to come to terms with the recent death of his mother as well as the recent birth of his daughter the latter the result of a one night stand in the former's beloved greenhouse He accepts a job tending a world famous rose garden overseas where he befriends a film buff priest Over time Lobbi cultivat

    Kindle Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir µ µ Afleggjarinn Kindle Ï afleggjarinn ebok, Afleggjarinn PDFI just read another review that mentioned this book was uiet Exactly This book is uiet Part of it takes place in a monastery and that's how this book is simple and uiet It's the story of a young man leaving his country for the first time and leaving his father and twin autistic brother behind His mom died a few years back and the family still seems to not have moved on Part of the book is the road trip to his destination which is never mentioned by name Neither is his country of origin But at least I came to the conclusion that he's going from Iceland to somewhere in southern EuropeThere are no superfluous details And it's very direct Despite this the descriptions and the characters do not come across flat or lacking And this is a very believable young m

    Kindle Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir µ µ Afleggjarinn Kindle Ï afleggjarinn ebok, Afleggjarinn PDFI read the Italian translation nota al traduttore e all'editore su do di io do l'accento NON ci va Ma insomma dove avete studiato??This is the story of the Icelandic Forrest Gump He has a retarded brother but he has some serious issues too I disagree with many reviewers who see him as a real regular almost typical 22 yo man Let's put it out there before anyone misses it this guy is border line autistic Things happen to him and to his body often as if he was watching them on a screen Yes teenagers live a bit like that but they don't rationalize that condition constantly like this guy does and they tend to express themselves in one way or the other while this guy is totally passive Now is that particularly Icelandic? Or is this something the author wanted to create? I don't know I know that aside from the normal issues of a twenty year old this man has other very peculiar issues very serious communication problems and as I said some autistic traits Let me be frank If this simple delicat

    Kindle Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir µ µ Afleggjarinn Kindle Ï afleggjarinn ebok, Afleggjarinn PDFThis book caught my eye for two main reasons First the title made me take my first look because I love all things gardening related Then the description of the book kept my attention because it described a story not only of the shared love of the title greenhouse between a son and his deceased mother but it also told of the journey of the son to a remote monastery to restore its once fabulous gardens Enough saidclickdownloadreadand I am glad to have done itI would describe this book as a very peaceful coming of age story about a 22 year old Icelandic man who loves gardening who suddenly finds himself a father following a one night stand which occurs in the title greenhouse The story also details the man's journey from Iceland to a remote southern European monastary in a country never named but which reminded me of Italy His relationships with his father his deceased mother his autistic brother his in
