I happened to be in Finland in 1982 when part of this story takes place. It brought back vivid memories of that time: the food, the places, the difference in culture. All of that and more gives you a sense of Finnish life and how it differs from the new life that Kaisa was headed for.
The prose flows well, and a little bit simplistic, which makes the book ideal for an international audience.
Certain things are quite unique about this book. A contrast between Finnish and English mentalities. I thought the story explored nicely what it is to be young, and insecure. To me Kaisa came across as self-centrered, at times even selfish. Ironically, she criticised her father for failures she couldn't quite see in herself. Kaisa's family tensions have definitely added to the drama of the story.
I didn't learn much about Kaisa outside her romance, even her friendship with Tuuli seemed quite superficial. Yet, I still wanted to know how her relationship with Peter would develop. Because I think it's easy to make a herione likeable, but it's far more difficult to portray your character in a way that makes her seem like a real person. The author Helena Halme totallly excelled at this.
I received an ebook copy for an honest review.
Simple language as well. Sometimes I felt the story seemed too child like as it were. Not a bad thing at all but just saying.
dullest book I have ever read, and I cannot believe I finished it. I kept waiting for something to happen, but nothing did. A lot of talk about customs, meeting people of different nationality and custom and strange places, over and over again. Same greeting from her English boyfriend each time they met. Sex, what sex? There was mention of some foods and drinks that that I had never heard of, and what could be so hard in saying, No, thanks on the offering of tea mixed with milk if it disgusted you so much. Ugh!
