" This book was excellent in that it was out of the ordinary. Not many books are set in Iceland and the change of scenery was refreshing. However, I felt like the book stopped and started a lot as if in some sort of traffic jam. Just when things would get going we would suddenly grind to a halt. I also felt like the depth of the characters could've been explored more, but perhaps this lack in quality has to do with the fact this is the author's own English translation. "
