Comment on Beyond the Truth by Anne Holt by Barbara

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 15:55:35 +0000

I just found it on Netgalley! So if you are a reviewer and have a Netgalley account (and are okay reading e-versions of books) you might be able to get an advance copy. To my surprise, it's been given the title ODD NUMBERS - I thought they might keep the Norwegian title which works in English but ... of course not :) I feel as if I need to reread 1222 now since my picture of Hanne has changed so much.

Waiting for the 9th is trying my patience, but I am sure it's worth the wait. Nice review.

A real villain, hey? Not lovable at all!! Can't wait to hear about the movie adaptation too.

I quite enjoyed it, though the titular father is a nasty piece of work. He's got his own twisted code and teaches it to his sons - the only valuable bit being that they should stick together. Though even that goes pear-shaped when their loyalty involves never questioning the wisdom of robbing banks.

You have piqued my interest and it sounds like it woukd make for a great film. I do like these sorts of 'fiction based on truth' stories even if the subject matter is a bit distasteful. It is a sad reflection of the strength of the human need for belonging that we all have, that some would go to these lengths to maintain loyalty and the 'brotherhood or family ties.'

I enjoyed reading this - just was a little bemused at how much it's really about family (well, and bank robbing as well) and how often books that focus on family relationships are consigned to "women's fiction" - a category that makes no sense to me. I suppose if they were baking cakes instead of robbing banks it would really have landed in that category! I enjoy your blog, too - hope the seasons get sorted out soon. I'm ready for spring.

It's a wonder she hasn't been fired! But in this one, Bella is actually useful, at least some of the time.
