  1. Dark indeed are the worlds of these often mentally ill, mainly Finnish people These 40 or so short short stories are usually one or two pages long five at most And what depressing tales they tell A sample a group of cutters are in the hospital One woman thinks of another in the group He was the one who d been cut deepest, of course, since he was never one for leaving things half done A pathetic kind of perfectionist When she rips off her bandages and leaves, The woman at the reception desk watch [...]

Solid o, Tristeza, dio, Morte, Assass nio, Sadismo, Vazio, T dio, Desespero, Indiferen a, Viol ncia, viol ncia,Em menos de cem p ginas e em pequenos contos com cerca de duas p ginas Rosa Liksom concentrou todo o horror da exist ncia humana.Se a vida fosse assim n o valeria a pena Olhou para a sua imagem reflectida no espelho do tecto Apanhou do ch o uma pesada jarra e atirou a ao tecto O espelho caiu por cima dela em lascas pequenas e grandes Os fragmentos abriram lhe cortes sangrentos no corpo [...]


  4. I pulled this off the shelf at the library because of the Dalkey logo on the spine, then knew I had to read it when the back blurb informed me that Rosa Liksom grew up on a reindeer farm in Lapland and spent a while roaming Europe as a squatter Both in its series of maybe but not really connected vignettes and in its tidy unadorned prose, this reminds me a lot of Steps, which unfortunately instantly underscores the ways in which this is inferior Namely, Steps tended to have narrative force wher [...]


  5. This was okay, but underwhelming It s basically 50 or so vignettes, not really connected in any real meaningful way They re all suffused with this kind of casual desperation casual is the operative word as the scenes of murder, suicide, bored fucking, and general lawlessness, madness, or insanity all come off as fairly deadpan, bland even Of course, it feels intentional on the part of the author, but if there s something actually intentionally being said here, it mostly just passed me by.


  6. Olipa mainiota kuunneltavaa nikirjana, pidin Eeva Maria Mutkan kertojan nest tosi paljon varsinkin murrekieliset jutut olivat ihania Kaikessa pimeydess n ja outoudessaan pidin my s Liksomin tarinoiden sis ll ist , mukana muutamia varsin helmi


  7. Gre za povsem neposredno, surovo in eksplicitno kompilacijo temnih plati sodobne dru be Kot taka je vir pronicljivih uvidov v posamezna poglavja sodobne deviantnosti, ki zaradi strukture izjemno kratkih zgodb, ki praviloma nimajo nikakr nega kesanja ali katarze, u inkujejo toliko bolj silovito Zgodbe bodo dale misliti Nekatere so pri tem bolj u inkovite, druge, seveda, nekoliko manj Spominja na temne in hladne atmosfere skandinavskih kriminalk Vsekakor za tiste z dobrimi ivci, e bolje pa jo bodo [...]

  9. Ai ett , olipa n ist jotkut ihan puhdasta kultaa Liksom luo novelleissaan kepe sti elokuvamaisia maisemia ihan pienill kuvailuilla, huumori on ihanan lakonista, kertojat ihan pimeit ja mit kaikkee Jengi posauttelee toisiaan hirvikiv reill , pukumies kiduttaa itsens ty p iv n p tteeks rauhalliseks ja naiset nyt varsinkaan ei kato mit n v tyksi kauaa Kuten sanottua Kai miehell kin jumalauta jotakin velvollisuuksia on jos kimpassa asutaan.


  10. Less eccentric than most of Liksom s writing, Dark Paradise still consist of extremely short flashes from the lives of a varied cavalcade of characters, as is the standard style of the author Her take on storytelling is just unusually realistic here, extreme situations and absurd irony are present but only in a subtle manner.Liksom again demonstrates her ability to bring characters truly alive with only a few sentences of their inner monologue Her prose is also beautiful and surprisingly lyrical [...]


  11. Think Elfriede Jelinek meets Eric Chevillard Think sex, violence, and the grotesque Think uncomfortable laughter Perhaps you ll then have some small idea of what this slim book holds in store for those brave enough to take the plunge.Originally written in Finnish, the collection if that s the right word for it consists of a number of untitled sketches or flash fictions, if you will, divided between two sections Domestic and Foreign I ll begin by discussing the former.Read the rest of the review [...]


  12. Nappasinpa Kuutos hytin lis ks mukaani my s t m n vuonna 1989 julkaistun novellikokoelman, ja onneks nappasin Meininki on kokoelman lyhyiss tarinoissa nyrj ht nyt pahemman kerran makaaberin puolelle, mutta silti ne ei saaneet aikaan mill n lailla kolkkoa fiilist , vaan p invastoin saivat usein jopa naurahtelemaan tai tuntemaan ep todenn k isin kin hetkin my t tuntoa monenkirjavia hahmoja kohtaan Kieli vaihtelee sujuvasti murteesta toiseen Virkist v n h iriintynytt luettavaa.


  13. Short, very short, carefully crafted stories about mentally unstable characters, violent crimes, sex and other dark corners of humanity The stories are set in Finland and we get glimpses of old Churches, fish processing plants, and fishing boats, but they could be anywhere and the characters could be anyone.


  14. I enjoyed the first few stories Abstracts Sketches Outlines Impressionist glimpses but halfway through it started getting repetitive Rehashing the same idea I d recommend 3 or 4 stories out of this collection while reading the rest wasn t a pain, they were in no way memorable or thought provoking.


  15. Bleak vignettes set in bleak Finland They re not character studies, they re barely character sketches I feel like they re ideal writing prompts, scenes 2 to 4 pages long, I could use them as story beginnings What would happen next I enjoyed reading these brief pieces and letting my imagination go.






  16. Zbirka cisto kratkih zgodb, z malo odstekano tematiko in junaki, ter s posebnim humorjem, ki ne izvira ravno iz Hoolywoodskih studiev.
