Definitely a beautiful novel, and I was wondering about the word count; that's even more than I thought! It does start slow, and to anyone about to read it: GET THROUGH THE BEGINNING! It's so, so worth it!

I work in an indie bookstore and give the same advice whenever I recommend this book (which I do - all the time). I say "stick with it through the trial in the beginning - it'll be worth it!" Glad to see great minds think alike.

I enjoyed this book, too. I have to agree with you, though, that it starts pretty slowly. It's definitley worth slogging through the beginning, though.

Hi Kathy, You can blame me for using last names rather than first most places. The Swedes tend to use BOTH names almost always, which seems unnecessary to English speakers. I usually use first names if there is a closer relation between characters. Then again, this might be something the editor did! Another problem is that the publisher left out the two maps that were in the original, which makes it much easier to follow what happens on the island... Be assured that there is a twist to the Harriet story, but I think it comes in book 2. And all 3 volumes were translated in 2006; publishing is often a slow business. Enjoy the rest, Reg

This is in my TBR pile and I'm really looking forward to reading it.
