4.0 out of 5 stars Teach yourseld Icwlandic, 9 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Complete Icelandic: Teach Yourself (Book/CD Pack) (Paperback)
The content of this course is methodical and set out logically. I'm enjoying it, I must say, and it is a pleasurable learning experience, which I undertook to help me be authentic in a novel set in Iceland, which I am in process of writing. I am using the course in conjunction with David Leffman's 'Top 10 Iceland' travel books (another good buy) which puts pictures to the learning process and makes me long to visit Iceland. I have one small caveat: the book could be of stronger construction. I would happily pay a little more for that.

If you're writing a book set in a place, you really should at least visit there, Patricia! =) All the best with the novel.

1831: Charlotte Treleaven Comes of Age

In my mind, Elizabeth, I have been living in Iceland for a long time, having listened, fascinated, to a young Icelander I knew talking about his country. But you are right and I'd really love to go and see all that fantastic scenery, and mean to when I can; next year, I am hoping. Something I find particularly interesting about Icelanders is that 10% of them are authors. For such a relatively small population that's amazing, don't you think?

I'm up to chapter seven of my novel 'Róstek's Saga' and loving every minute of it. Who knows, you may be reading it one day.
