3,5 It was okay i guess, but too much unimportant filling Today I finished reading my first Swedish book in years And I was reminded why I stopped All the characters were so unbelievably Swedish Always complaining about everything Never being content Never talking to anyone about feelings or problems but keeping it locked up inside and then wonder why they feel bad Craving warmth and closeness but at the same time trying to be better than everyone else and push people away Judging people from afar and then being falsely nice to them Procrastinate the problem to the next day and then the next Alcohol solves everything Convincing everyone that you re awesome while at the same time you feel totally worthless.Welcome to my home.After the first 20 pages I wanted to throw the book away The three main characters, whose perspectives the reader follows, were all completely hopeless So hopeless that they made me angry But I trudged on through the book After all it was said to be a horror novel, perhaps something would happen that would force some sense into the characters And sure it was interesting to read about the mythology of the native Scandinavians, but other than that nothing really happened in the book except for complaining and pushing people away until the last 100 pages when something started to stir and then in the last 30 pages everything exploded and happened all at once And just as suddenly as it started it ended.I read 2 3 of the book in one day On hope Hope that something would happen to shake the characters reality and shake some sense into them It was said to be a horror novel, but it really wasn t I wouldn t even let it qualify as a thriller.Not even the characters were interesting Except for the three main characters everyone was a stereotype.I m not impressed Not even a little. It was, in general, a good novel but it felt kind of flat at places could have also been because of the narrator, didn t really dig her and her way of speaking , too much stupid girlish skirmishes and back talk, and all the annoying screamings by the main character Helena throughout the book, but it started to get really boring by the end.
