Summer in Denmark is the setting Beautiful sea wide skies beach bikes what s not to likeIf you are just twelve a boy unsettled with his family confused about changes with his feelings and body it s maybe not so great Arvid and his mom dad and sister go by boat to stay with his mom s parents for a holiday This seems like an annual thing but there are underlying currents of tension between the adults angers long buried secrets and all this spills over making Arvid act out and recklessly soBeautiful imagery language complicated characters Newly translated in 2016 but published in 1989 Echoland is still very much a theme that speaks to each of us Petterson is an engaging writer so much so that while I was reading the book outside in our garden with the wind rustling the leaves of our maple tree the images of the sea gulls boats sand and brilliant sunshine so made me want to shut my eyes and enjoy the scene maybe stretch out and take a short nap Savour the momentI love this passage page 20 Arvid and Mogens raced along the road by the beach Arvid on his second hand Swithun and Mogens on his standard black Danish boneshaker with the laughably small luggage rack They stopped at the old kiosk and each bought a Giant Eskimo and pedalled on with one hand holding the ice cream and the other pointing to the sky which was fine because the bikes themselves knew where they were going As for Arvid s youthful angst we all get it The troubles in his family add a dangerous element to the mix as we find out at the endA thoughtful read one to skim back through and re visit a couple of scenes and pages Poignant Moving A very very good book
