Hunger | Knut Hamsun

I didn‘t enjoy this #audiobook. A down on his luck writer sees things go from bad to worse as he runs out of money, slowly sells off his possessions, and becomes increasingly mentally unstable as hunger rules his thoughts. Yet, throughout the story, people do try to help him and he makes incredibly bad decisions. I wanted to feel sympathy, but I just didn‘t. I don‘t quite know what to make of the ending either.

I really enjoyed the parts of this book about farm life and raising sheep in Iceland in the early 1900s. I wished sometimes that things I considered fairly major events had been described in a bit more detail, and I did not enjoy the more political aspects. Yet overall, this was a wonderful choice for experiencing #Iceland for #ReadingEurope2020.

I‘ve been listening to this #audiobook off and on the last few days as I do other things. With all the talk of sheep and life in the wide open spaces of #Iceland it‘s a good listen for a walk. Listening to stories of hard times with starvation looming is not so enjoyable while baking. I also caught up on flagging all the #1001books I‘ve read as I listened as well, and I‘ve decided this is the best way to feel you‘re making progress on the list.

Daisey @rather_be_reading I‘ve only read just over 100, but the flags actually make it feel like I‘m getting somewhere. 2w
batsy I read a digital copy, and I loved it so much. Totally immersive experience. 2w
Daisey @batsy I am very much appreciating it, but I can‘t say I‘m loving it. At the same time I‘ve seems everlasting reviews saying it really all came together in the end. I‘m definitely feeling it is a great choice to experience Iceland. 2w

First book of the #Readathon weekend completed! This book includes the stories of three different people in the same apartment building told as confessions. It is stories of the choices and maybe mistakes that they‘ve made and demonstrates how sharing those stories helps them to move forward.
