Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I received a copy of this book for free for review purposes.

This is the second of Hirschi’s books that I’ve read, and although I thought Willem of the Tafel was good, this one raised the bar. My only gripe with it is the title, which does get explained towards the end but which I also think fails to set your expectations as high as they should be, at the beginning – that said, I also can’t think of a better alternative.

As for the plot, it’s perfect – it’s also hard to classify into a genre, but I’d go for ‘literary fiction‘, whatever that is. It follows the story of a Norwegian guy called Haakon, as he falls in love only for it to be cut tragically short. After that, he decides to see the world a bit, and all sorts of crazy things happen. I can’t give away the plot any more than I already have, but I can tell that you’re in for a bumpy ride, and that paedophilia and homosexuality are both featured, as well as pretty much everywhere in the world except America.

I really can’t fault this book too much, but it’s just not quite good enough for a ten – that said, even if this isn’t my book of the year, it’s easily my book of the month, and I recommend you check it out. Tell Michel that I said hi.
