It is fascinating, how much depth this young author can convey in a simple language - a major talent. (Oldenburgische Volkzeitung, Germany)
Loe certainly has some of Salinger's lightness of touch, and often comic voice of his unnamed narrator recalls Salinger's Holden Caulfield. A charming debut novel. (The Times)
A book overflowing with creative talent on just about every page. Well calculated naivety. (Dagbladet, Norway)
it displays a canny lightness of touch and a great deal of charm. An effortlessly hip and savvy antidote to the rainy day blues. (Sleazenation)

Erlend Loe's unique voice in "Naive. Super" is open and insightful on a level that reminds me of "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" by Dave Eggers. And that is a compliment to both authors.
(To clarify: The title's spelling of "naive" is an English form, not Norwegian, and only appears in the translation.)
It's a very quick read, but it's poignant and succinct. It translates well; the abrupt sentences and simple language are part of what makes it charming.
