    Dovoljno je pro?itati ovaj sjajan prikaz knjige koji je Teofil Pan?i? napisao te davne 2005. http://www.vreme.rs/cms/view.php?id=4... Ovo je jedna od "onih" knjiga koje mi najvi?e zna?e kao uredniku... :) ...

    Matti is a regular teen in 60s Pajala up in the extreme north of Sweden, where they think of themselves as Finns and speak Finnish by preference. These are guys who know how to hold their liquor, laugh at temperatures that go down to forty below zero, handle a gun, an axe or a snowmobi...

    Popularna muzika iz Vitule, predstavlja prvi roman ?vedskog pisca Mikaela Niemia poznatog do tada po svojim zbirkama poezije kao i pozori?nim komadima. Prvi roman, sjajan roman! Prljav, dirljiv, nostalgi?an, duhovit. Radnja prati odrastanje dva de?aka, Mattija i Nile, na samom ...

    This one has it all. Humanity, humour up the wazoo, insight, high emotional stakes, great use of language (it must be amazing in the Swedish but oh well),magic, and morals. Anyone who grew up in an isolated place will relate to this. Spoiler alert, if you already know you're going...

    I distinctly remember starting this book. I was on a plane home from Japan, finally from our sudden month in the UK. They had just turned the lights out after meals and drinks so that people could sleep. It was about 12am at night Japanese time, so 1am Aussie time. I was already feelin...

    My friend who studied Swedish gave me this book to read and one evening we were reading it together and laughing like crazy hyenas. That time we lived on campus, three girls in one room, and the third girl desperately tried to study while we two were making such a noise! ??????...

    On the link of literature to madness - Excerpt from a lecture delivered in the sauna by Dad; he explicates the facts of life for 14 year old Mattie so his son will know how to be a man: "Then [Dad] started going through a list of all the family idiots. I'd already met some of them: o...

    Popular Music from Vittula is an ingenious blend of memoir, folklore, magical realism, and talented story telling. Who knew growing up in the Arctic Circle would be so enchanting? (I thought it would be too frigid to do anything but shiver.) But Niemi forms a beautiful landscape where ...

    Best Finnish book ever. Well, OK, I haven't read any others. But this is what I imagine my childhood may have been like if my father had never left Finland. Some of the most endearing scenes and stories I have ever read. Too god damned cute to put down. Nothing life-changing i...

    growing up as a huckleberry Finn Growing up anyplace isn't smooth, it isn't describable exactly. If you search your memories later, trying to ask why you did something, you can't, for the life of you, remember why. You just did it. Things happened. You tried to get to China. You mim...

    I've got a kind of obsession for Scandinavian literature, having lived for a little while in Norway. And yet I have to say that Swedish literature has more to offer than Norwegian one with such great novelists like Stig Dagerman, Lars Gustafsson and Torgny Lindgren. Mikael Niemi ...

    The narrator in this self-deprecating Swedish coming-of-age story does a great job at capturing a child's view of things. Author Mikael Niemi keeps the reader guessing at time as to the reliability of the narrator as he winds his way through the story of the friendship of two boys, the...

    This one turned out surprisingly good actually. Even tho I've been complaining about it ever since we started reading it at school, I've never laughed so much, nor as hard, while reading something ever before. I think I might even read it again one day, as long as I find a copy with a ...

    brilliant. i read it in swedish and i just love the language so much. i usually say i hate swedish, but this swedish is so..weird... it must be dialect or something and there's finnish words mixed in and it's just so wonderful. the book is good too. really it is. it left me with a fee...

    P nippet til gi denne 4 stjerner, men m vre litt streng. Den tok seg endel opp p slutten. Boken handler alts om et par gutter som vokser opp i nord-Sverige p 60-70-tallet en gang. Stedet de vokser opp p heter Vittulajnk, som betyr "Fittemyra". Boken er egentlig ...

    ehk jopa 3,5/5 thte, koska tykksin kielest paljon. ehk vhn liikaa sellasta skandinaavista junttimeininki, mutta siit huolimatta t oli parempi kuin odotin. ...

    Selv om boka av og til blir litt for episodisk, er den spass full av herlige situasjoner og beskrivelser at den var en fryd lese. Deler av boka kan jeg relatere til, mens andre matcher godt opp mot fordommene man har mot den tid og samfunn boka er satt til. Den er i samme stil som...

    Mikael Niemi's Popular Music from Vittula was interesting to say the least. However, I was not fond of it at all, and I tried to be. Unlike Ellen Foster, this book never really grew on me, although part of it could be due to the fact that I am not familiar with the culture, and I have ...
