    1. I loved this book when I first read it 18 years ago. I just reread it and now appreciate its beauty and value even more.

    2. Very well written, and with a seemingly authentic historical and cultural setting. Iceland in the 17th century was pretty well at its nadir. As if surviving at all in this harshest of natural environments wasn't hard enough, the autocratic and repressive rule of the Danish colonists made life even tougher. The social and political situation is very similar to that in Sjon's The Mouth of the Whale.The Reformation caused as much upheaval here as it did in other parts of Europe, thanks in big part [...]

    3. Spændende beretning om den islandske Gudmundur Andréssons liv i Island i første halvdel af 1600-tallet, og om hvordan han pga. sine meninger og ikke mindst hans måde at sige og skrive dem på havner i som fange i Blåtårn på Københavns Slot.Meget interessant og velskrevet tidsbillede af Island på den tid, og de magtkampe og intriger som Gudmundur bliver fanget i - ikke mindst pga sin egen store kæft!
