    PDF/EPUB Per Petterson ð ð Ekkoland Kindle ✓ ekkoland mobile, Ekkoland PDF/EPUBIt has been a while since I have read Per Pettersen I have certainly missed him and have read all the previous translations My only problem with several of his books are that they are too short and Echoland is indeed that but having said that it is up there with his very best I was surprised to read it was written than 30 years ago and yet bears those similar trademarks and pillars of his recent work Out Stealing Horses To Siberia In The WakeIt is the story of a 12 year old boy’s summer holiday on the Danish coast He is a Norwegian of Italian descent and arrives with his family by yacht It is easy to identify with as many of u

    PDF/EPUB Per Petterson ð ð Ekkoland Kindle ✓ ekkoland mobile, Ekkoland PDF/EPUB Echoland published last year is Per Petterson’s eighth novel Like the bulk of Petterson’s work you can read all my reviews here the story is framed around a character named Arvid who has a Norwegian father and a Danish mother and is said to be loosely based on the author himselfArvid has appeared in various incarnations in previous novels — from a six year old boy to a 43 year old man — but in this one he is on the cusp of becoming a teenagerThere’s no real plot; the story is essentially a series of vignettes following Arvid’s day to day adventures on the Danish coast where his working class family is spending the summer with Arvid’s maternal grandparentsHere in the small fishing community where Arvid’s mother grew up there is a sense of troubled family history bubbling just beneath the surface At times the tension between Arvid’s mother and his deeply religious grandmother boils over into protestations and tears

    PDF/EPUB Per Petterson ð ð Ekkoland Kindle ✓ ekkoland mobile, Ekkoland PDF/EPUBThe coastal landscape comes alive in this set of linked stories about a 12 year old boy who wakes up to the secrets and hypocrisy of his somber family The images and feelings are vivid in a way I felt was true to childhood and early adolescence I thought I knew where the story was going I felt the ending was a cop out

    PDF/EPUB Per Petterson ð ð Ekkoland Kindle ✓ ekkoland mobile, Ekkoland PDF/EPUBI like Petterson's work a lot and this his first novel has now been translated It's a slight work in comparison to his later stuff but it introduces many of the themes and landscapes that feature in that work It's promising and worth reading but not the best introduction to his work
