Hjartastaður

Harpa ist Anfang Dreißig und sie hat ein Problem Ihre Tochter Edda ist drogensüchtig Freundin Heide will der allein erziehenden Mutter helfen. This book from 1995 won the Icelandic Literature Prize In a way I m surprised the book won a prize it s very slow going focusing too much on landscape and inner thoughts It also has an abrupt unsatisfactory ending and I feel personally insulted that the main character feels she is a dwarf even though she s my height 5 2 which is only 4 shorter than the Icelandic average woman In another way I m not surprised it won a prize because the author says a lot of meaningful things in interesting ways I highlighted 70 passages including some passages on Icelandic nature For example The sea in this deep fjord is no longer of saltwater it s a viscous molten pool of silk the softest cradle in the world for ducklings tired in the evenings It has particularly much to say about being a caregiver The main character works in nursing and at the same time she s helping her elderly father and dealing with her troubled teenage daughter Constantly caring for others wondering if she s to blame for her daughter s problems grieving her mother s death uestioning who her father is and coping with an on againoff again love affair all lead her to the brink of a breakdown My tears are hard as hail my heart is chilled There s no room for herself in her life and her last hope is taking this road trip to a new life The book ends with a so called glossary The glossary would have functioned much better as footnotes because many of the entries identify sources of uotes Other entries tell about Icelandic sayings songs and products I would have consulted the glossary if I had known it was there The author has enjoyed success in both Iceland Germany and France where one of her books was made into a film I hope of her books get translated into English she has an interesting voice and I d like to read other hopefully faster praced books by her

summary Hjartastaður

Urch die Schönheit der isländischen Landschaft erschwert durch die Unberechenbarkeit Eddas und des Wetters eine Reise zum Herzort der Kindhei. Second time I tried reading this book First time I didn t like it now months later it has not gotten any better and could not finish it Would not recommend

    See of my book reviews on my blog Literary FlitsThe second contender so far for May's Book of the Month Place Of The Heart is a very different novel to A Spoke In The Wheel and I loved its gorgeous descriptions of Icelandic landscapes Harpa her daughter Edda and their friend Heidur drive across the south of Iceland on a

    It took me some time to establish a connection with Steinunn Sigurdardóttir’s novel Place of the Heart in spite of its elegant yet unpretentious writing translated with outstanding artfulness by Philip Roughton The reason is simple I hate spending time with teenagers bent on destroying themselves with drugs and alcohol not to mention the risk of AIDS—and this novel forces you to But the author managed to convince me that her novel is

    Mainly it was great Because I've driven the route that the book takes place over I could really relate to the scenery and descriptionsThe writing was powerful even the main character talking about herself in the third person from time to time I wasn't as keen on her seeing and talking to her dead mother and thought this information could have been conveyed a different wayThe storyrelationship of the main character with
