I read this not knowing what to expect, and wondering if the english translation would match up with the swedish/norwegian version that my friend loved so much.
It is not a complicated book. The story is simple, and told through the eyes of a peasant girl, although educated. Her images are really strong and I found it easy to imagine what was happening. The translation itself is a bit clunky at times. The female characters are all strong, and nicely fleshed out whether they are allies or antagonists. the male characters are too.
I found it very easy to read - finished it in a couple of hours, and I was quite taken with Silje and Tengel.
It's a light read, and worth it to get immersed in their world.
