5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky & fascinating Norway 3 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the second of these books I have bought - the first was for Finland. I love it because it gives a different insight into the country and culture. It covers all sorts of things including landscape, architecture, business meetings and eating out. There are some funny anecdotes and quirky insights that bring a touch of humour and colour. I only visited Norway for a brief trip so it was not all relevant, but if I was going there for longer or to live this would be invaluable.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK 13 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A fairly interesting read but quite misleading and probably dated. Claims there is no poverty in Norway but there are many people begging on the street in Oslo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Norway, another world 12 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had no preconceptions about Norway and found this book essential to tailor my expectations of the country (stunning) and the people (reserved but delightful). Thank you

I have not read all of this, but only skimmed through about half of it - I have found myself with other more pressing things to do. However, I am keen to get back to it. It was very readable and informative. So my reaction so far has been very favourable, and I don't think that is likely to change when I do go back to it.

While an American, for example, may be shocked to see an office emptying on the stroke of 4:00 p.m., Norwegians will wonder why he needs to work late into the evening. Perhaps he is incompetent or slow. &quote;

Don’t remark how expensive Norway is—they have heard it too often before. &quote;
