Lists with This Book. Mostly because I attended Norwegian primary and secondary school, and never liked anything we were told to read. I’m pretty certain if I’d been told to read this book at the time, I probably would have let my bias get the best of me and not liked it. It dawned on me, while reading the book, that most people who quote Janteloven have rarely read the book. Their renditions of Janteloven is too simplistic! I read the book looking to understand Janteloven, and I’m glad I did.
I thoroughly enjoyed the narrative technique employed by Sandemose, and the text struck a chord for me. Revisiting the protagonist’s checkered past in a messy, storytelling way offers you a sense of closeness to the narrator. At times it felt as though I was the other half of a conversation wherein Arnakke the “protagonist” attempts to deliver an autobiography.
En flyktning krysser sitt spor
The entire book reads like a confession; admissions of een, shame, desire, theft, murder, regret, love, and hate appear throughout the novel. Yet, all in all, the interesting aspect is not that Arnakke’s story is unique. In fact, Sandemose, through Arnakke, specifically tells us: This book was published in the s I don’t know how long Sandemose had been working on itand the atmosphere of the time shines through. Life was not easy in a small industrial village, and it had significant repercussions on well-being, physical and mental.
Arnakke’s story is but one of many, which renders his telling all kryssser more powerful in my opinion. This book might not be everyone’s cup of tea. I read it with a specific goal in mind, and it helped me appreciate a lot of the elements in the flyktnlng. It won’t tell you ssitt Scandinavians are the way they are the book is 80 years old, only traces of it applies and it won’t tell you explicitly why Janteloven is the way it is. I am very glad I read the book, and I would highly recommend people to read it.
A minor caveat is that I don’t know whether the English translation is any good: I speak English and Norwegian fluently, and I struggled with the ambiguity of the language when translating sections for eb article. This flyktninb might be lost in translation a crying shame!
As the ambiguous language makes it all the more enjoyable! This book is the origin of Jante’s Law. The rules are as follows: You’re not to think you are anything special. You’re not to think you are as good as us. You’re not to think you are smarter than us. You’re not to convince yourself that you are better than us. You’re not to think you know more than us. You’re not to think you are more important than us.
You’re not to think you are good at anything. You’re not to laugh at us. You’re not to think anyone cares about you. You’re not to think flyktnint can This book is the origin of Jante’s Law. You’re not to think you can teach us anything. Oct 02, Dima rated it liked it. Jante’s law has got a life on its own and became much more famous than the book it comes from.
A reader often knows the law way before the cover page is turned over. So there is a danger that when you finally get to this novel there are already Jante-related images in your head that are not going to be confirmed by the text.
It happened to me.
I had some questions about the law that I hoped would be answered by the book. Maybe this personal disappointment is the only reason why I Jante’s law has got a life on its own and became much more famous than the book it comes from. Maybe this personal disappointment is the only reason why I haven’t rated this book higher.
If during the reading I could stop hoping that on the next page I would get answers, I would have enjoyed this precise psychological analysis of the small closed societies much more. Aug 25, Erlend Aasland rated it liked it Shelves: Beskrivelsen av det vonde og groteske i mennesket er utruleg bra, og minnar meg til tider om Steinbeck dog ikkje like bra.
Men boka vart for langdryg. Feb 01, Lise rated it liked it Shelves: The book in which Sandemose created the Law of Jante: Jan 09, Lorenzo Berardi rated it did not like it Shelves: Fascinated by the concept of “Jante” while living in Norway, I tried to read this book in original language two years ago.
Aksel Sandemose – Wikipedia
That was probably a mission too hard to accomplish for me. I tracked it down through interlibrary loan from Monmouth College. I was the third reader since July It was more than a bit of plow through read, and I can certainly verify that the oppressive authoritarian culture highlighted made flyktniing it so challenging. What most struck me was that the heavy hand of adult society and religion so unkindly depicted made one question the celebration of the calm community of hygge.
Of course to are quite distance, true, but it seems like Jante Law may still hover in Scandinavia. It is an interesting and gripping semi-autobiographical story that first explained the concept of jantelagen. However, I found eh became too long- winded and confused. The charm of following someone’s memories starts to become tiring and chaotic after about pages. One of the major strengths of the book is also one of its weaknesses.
Maybe the concept of jantelagen has also become too big with the years in Scandinavia because Flytkning somehow expected more detail on it and more explanations. Inste It krysswr an interesting and gripping semi-autobiographical story that first explained the concept of jantelagen. Instead there was flykyning more on Espen, his growing up as well as his violent and difficult journey. An interesting read nonetheless.
Jul 06, Stine Kristin rated it liked it Shelves: Nu vil jeg fortelle alt. Det evige refrenget runger gjennom hele boka: Du tror kanskje ikke jeg vet noe om deg?
Som om du er noe bedre enn oss, hva innbiller du deg? Bygdedyret ser deg alltid. Du tror kanskje ikke at jeg vet noe om dig?
