Ok, folks, I just took the book out of the library, and I assume it's the trilogy, because it runs to 800 pp. So I think, what with
MY NEW GRANDCHILD
(pauses and waits for cries of "No! Really? You look MUCH too young to be a grandmother!" - but not a sausage)
that reading the first volume only might be a realistic target for one month.
I've started reading it, and apart from the strange new nomenclature, it reads pleasantly and easily, which is a relief, because I am such a lazy reader, and rarely move out of my comfort zone. Would anyone be up for a rereading of the Moomin books after this? Cause they're the only other works of Northern literature I've read...
Best to you all
