One of the most unusual stories I have ever read. I am not sure what the author was trying to accomplish, but he does succeed at making a cohesive story (which I write because he is known for being an experimental writer, and so I almost expected an introspective mess). This is notable because it shows life in Iceland between the world wars and during the Spanish flu.

This slight novel is too ambitious to succeed at any theme.
