Read full description of the books:
"They continue to walk. Hand in hand. It's snowing.
They don't know where they're walking, or where they're headed.
But right now it doesn't matter.
Because every step they take in any direction is a first step in a new direction.
It's snowing and snowing over Stockholm."
When I was trying to find my favourite quote in this book, I realised that I hadn't marked any passages except for a paragraph at the beginning of the book, where the reasons and motivations for the book are discussed. This is a story about things that happened. People who existed. Lives that ended and tears that were shed.
This is a masterfully told story about religion, identity, friendship, love, sex, shame, about so many things. It's so relevant and speaks freely and directly about the lives of the characters using beautiful and poetic language. It might sound odd to describe the style as both direct and poetic, as those two are rarely thought of as connected. But in this text it's the simply stated truth that is the most poetic. The narrative steps carefully, respectfully through the lives of the people it tells of. It speaks beautifully about ugly things. Terrible opinions, awful conduct, painful situations and abused feelings. Ruinous attitudes that made my stomach turn.
This book demonstrates the importance of reading. To experience life from other perspectives, through someone else's eyes and hopefully learn from it. To expand our knowledge and the capacity of our hearts, in order to be more understanding of the world.
I didn't mark any other passages in this book than that one paragraph, because it was too hard to pick out certain sentences that felt more relevant than others. This story in its entirety is beautiful, heart-breaking and important. Everyone should read it.
