When We Were Vikings
When We Were Vikings | Andrew David MacDonald
7 posts | 5 read | 8 to read
A heart-swelling debut for fans of The Silver Linings Playbook and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Sometimes life isnt as simple as heroes and villains. For Zelda, a twenty-one-year-old Viking enthusiast who lives with her older brother, Gert, life is best lived with some basic rules: 1. A smile means thank you for doing something small that I liked. 2. Fist bumps and dabs = respect. 3. Strange people are not appreciated in her home. 4. Tomatoes must go in the middle of the sandwich and not get the bread wet. 5. Sometimes the most important things dont fit on lists. But when Zelda finds out that Gert has resorted to some questionableand dangerousmethods to make enough money to keep them afloat, Zelda decides to launch her own quest. Her mission: to be legendary. It isnt long before Zelda finds herself in a battle that tests the reach of her heroism, her love for her brother, and the depth of her Viking strength. When We Were Vikings is an uplifting debut about an unlikely heroine whose journey will leave you wanting to embark on a quest of your own, because after all... We are all legends of our own making.

We get an intimate view of a character not common in literature: a special-needs 21 year-old woman on the Fetal Alcohol Sprectrum. We're privy to her greatest challenges & fears, all while her unrelenting bravery carves out her own path in the world as she protects those she loves at all costs. Her coming-of-age story really pulls at your heartstrings, and you'll find yourself rooting for her throughout all the laughs and cries. 5 stars.

I knew from the synopsis this would be right up my alley, it was recommended to fans of The Silver Linings Playbook and A Curious Incident of the Dog In the Night-Time, both of which I really liked. It lived up to the recommendation, I would also add for fans of Memoirs Of An Imaginary Friend. I thought it was very well done and I enjoyed every minute of reading it. Thank you #netgalley for providing me an ARC to read.

I enjoyed being taught about Vikings from this heroine‘s unique point of view and current experiences. I was rooting for her from the start and my interest in what happened to each of the people in her life was high. The author told an engaging tale about how messy life is and how much we need each other to get through.
