Part 3 of an unmissable series,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Boyhood Island: My Struggle Book 3 (Kindle Edition)
If you haven't yet read Knausgaard's fictionalised autobiography, begin immediately! Part 1 is 'A Death in the Family'. I cannot wait for Part 4. I have not been this engaged and provoked by a living writer for a very long time. This is not light reading: he is a deeply serious artist. Yet it is also, often, very funny; and just, well, real, in a way that makes most contemporary writing seem like a pale reflection of life.

I am in complete agreement with you. It's the sheer honesty, life, warts and all, that is so enthralling. Serious and funny and self-absorbed - in a GOOD way - self examining in a way that holds a mirror up to all of us. I also cannot wait for part four - but am not looking forward to reaching the end!
