I think that the splendid authors here should be given a pay rise. They really capture the essence of what life must be like for Trolls. Trying to get a healthy ballance between scaring goats, posting on forums and having fun.
This work never comes across as an amateur guide to Trolls. What it DOES do best is firstly, introduce this Modernist literary view of Trollism to the Philistines out there who have either never read about or never heard of Trolls and, secondly, to delineate the Troll life into four levels of increasing pain and frustration. Do trolls crave attention as claimed or are they, indeed, crying out for love? The authors handle this question in a sensative way which never resorts to circumambient peripherization.
