Hálendið review á 103 download Û eBook or Kindle ePUB ¿ Steinar Bragi Ega að sér Úti heyrast dularfull hljóð og eldar kvikna atburðir úr fortíðinni leita á gestina og smám saman verður erfiðara að átta sig á því hvar óvinurinn leyni. The story is about four friends and a dog who are on a camping trip in the volcanic wilds of Iceland There are tensions between the four and they see the trip as away of mending their relationships but things have already become fraught early on in the journey when they crash in the middle of nowhere They take refuge in an isolated farmhouse occupied by a mysterious elderly coupleThe efforts to resume their journey are thwarted they fail to leave in their jeep or in the car they borrow from the couple and even resorting to leaving on foot they end up returning to the dark and menacing house At the times where they have put some distance between themselves and the house they make further mysterious discoveries in the wilderness an abandoned car an abandoned village on a cut off island The inside of the house farm and the couple are no less puzzling They struggle to figure out the relationship between the uncommunicative man and woman there are animals bodies on the doorstep and a hidden room that just adds to the mysteriesAs the story unfolds the backstory of the characters comes out which casts light on them both as individuals and on the relationships between the four of them In some ways these feel like caricatures this isn t a criticism but it feels as if the author was using the four people to highlight some of the issues around the financial crash the book was published in Iceland in 2011 Their lives and perspectives are uite exaggerated but their reactions to the events after they become stranded seem surprisingly relaxedI still don t know what to make of this book It was part crime part thriller part horror and part well just plain weird I was really taken in by it I didn t particularly like the characters but I wanted to know what happened to them or what had happened to them I didn t have any issues with the writing or translation There was probably too much of the characters backstory for me but the story was atmospheric tense dark it really gripped me But I just couldn t figure out what was going on Since finishing the book and while writing my review I ve had a look to see what other people make of the book There is a full synopsis on Wikipedia which tells me that it enjoyed very positive reviews although it seems to be struggling to do so in the English translation Perhaps it just isn t reaching the right audienceThank you to the publisher for the review copy

I can only repeat a uote attributed to both Sid Ziff and Dorothy Parker This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly It should be thrown with great force
