    Mr Mankell, what did you WANT Did you want to write something satirical about the growth in the crime book industry Because if you did, you kind of got close, and what you did write is pretty funny at times Did you want to write a moving portrait of the plight of Sweden s illegal immigrants Because if you did, a non fiction book might have been effective Read Beyond the Beautiful Foreve...

    The book opens with a young Nigerian woman who has survived a shipwreck and is herded into a refugee camp Out of desperation to escape, she unsuccessfully impersonates a Kurd and gives herself the English name, Tea Bag after spotting the tin sitting on the official s desk I loved her confidence and gutsiness despite her circumstances It goes downhill from there.Cut scene to Jesper Humlin a poet returning from his vacation research trip and is back in Sweden to enjoy reality and deal with a whole crew of annoying friends and family I was annoyed by his whining and helplessness from being tugged around his headstrong and demanding relationships There s his demanding mother M rta, who guilt trips him about not talking to her enough even though he has dinner with her every week without fail There s his angry girlfriend Andrea who wants a kid a.s.achokengtitik

    titikchokeng and pulls out the omg that s it, I m breaking up with you this time For serious I mean it Really, I mean it card every other phone call There s his pushy editor who wants him to forget poetry and hop on the crime fiction bandwagon a shout out to Mankell s Wallander Series , who actually goes ahead to push a false tagline, press releases, and title because he s such a ...

    What a wonderful book this is Another classic Mankell which I hope will be read and loved by many people.On several occasions I was laughing out loud while reading it during my holiday in Madeira, as well as on the plane I got a few curious glances from people but I did not care There was so much humour, whether in...

    Nach Seite 106 breche ich dieses Buch ab Ich werde wohl kein Anh nger mehr von Henning Mankell Ich werde dem Buch aber deswegen keine Null Punkte geben Mich hat die Story interessiert, aber irgendwie kam ich nicht in den Lesegenuss und auf Arbeit hatte ...

    Mankell s social conscience at work here A strange but interesting book about a pretentious, pompous Swedish poet and three immigrant women who rock his world Jesper Humlin is the poet and he s a vain jerk and a racist in denial He writes books no one buys or understands, is consumed about his tan, and fears his lover and mother will write books and get fame than him His publisher is even of a jerk There are many humorous and exasperating exchanges between them over his next literary project But the real focus of the book is not Jesper but the three immigrant women who cross into his path We have two illegals a Russian and an African and then there is an Iranian born in Sweden They are all free and independent types who lie, steal, and will do whatever it takes to have freedom and escape control of family or the state You re nev...

    Het boek gaat overal en nergens heen, en mogelijk is dat juist de bedoeling Net als de vluchteling komt het niet thuis, kan het geen aansluiting vinden bij de massa, beweegt het zich in de schemerzone van een verhaal, en dan toch weer niet Je leest, je legt wegje denkt nu gaat het komen, maar het komt niet Het is een onmoeting met meisjes, jonge vrouwen uit verre landen die elk met hun rugzak gevuld met leed, geloof, cultuur, ervaring op zoek zijn naar een luisterend oor binnen de Zweedse samenleving Die luisteraar vinden ze terug in de persoon van een vertwijfelde dichter die vluchteling is voor zijn eigen bestaan en een moeilijke relatie met zijn omgeving heeft.Er waren momenten dat ik dacht, ik stop er mee, ik lees niet verder, maar na een bladzijde een paar keer herkauwd te hebben, slikte ik door en draaide ik de volgende pagina om De ...

    I felt this was the most unsatisfactory of all Mankell s novels that I ve read Of his non Wallander novels I really liked one The man from Beijing and found another a bit odd but interesting xxx But The shadow girls deeply irritated me I think he was trying to show that the worries and concerns of people from rich countries are trivial compared to the terrible circumstances of illegal refugees from Africa and Asia While I have a lot of sympathy for that point of view, Mankell created the most idiotic set of Swedish characters who all seemed totally self centred and lacking in...

    There were some interesting themes and characters but I felt this book never amounted to what it could have and intended to.

    Estava sozinha e fazia todos os poss veis para n o pensar que essa solid o teria um fim, pois sabia que iria acompanha l durante um per odo de tempo que podia ser extremamente longo Henning Mankell conta hist rias que ficam connosco, n o s pelas suas personagens de personalidade forte, mas tamb m pelos temas importantes que partilha connosco, deixando nos espreitar o seu leque de valores Esta uma hist ria sobre as pessoas que n o tem vozes e Tea Bag a rapariga que lhe d in cio O que que se pode dizer sobre o quotidiano que seja digno de considera o, excepto o facto de ser aborrecido Jesper Humlin, um poeta relativamente conhecido, recebe uma ordem, disfar ada de sugest o, do seu editor O editor, obeso e fumador ass duo, pede, da forma menos subtil e mais evidente, a entrega de um romance policial Apesar da recusa e indigna o do poeta, a editora publicita e anuncia o livro que est a escrever mas que nunca ser escrito Ao mesmo tempo, a namorada controladora, o inimigo concorrente com quem se encon...

    Best wel een goed boek De combinatie van de pretentieuze schrijver en de meisjes op de vlucht Tea Bag, Tanja en Leyla werkt goed, al zijn het vooral de verhalen van die laatste die dit boek de moeite waard maken De schrijver voelt iets te clich als personage en zijn belevenissen beslommeringen met o.a zijn vriendin en zijn ui...
