5.0 out of 5 stars Another must-read from Roosh., October 31, 2011
By 
This review is from: Bang Iceland: How To Sleep With Icelandic Women In Iceland (Paperback)
For me, Bang Iceland is a thought-provoking, cautionary tale, but one that presents the Country as a challenge that begs to be answered.

My idealistic dreams of the place were shattered when early on, I was hit by the now seemingly obvious revelation that game sometimes needs to be drastically dampened and modified. Time to develop a new skill-set, always fun.

As usual with Roosh, we get an honest, realistic point of view. It feels like a genuinely open account of solo game abroad. There's no bull, we get both highs AND lows. It's a ruthless, yet endearing, portrayal of solo game, which can obviously be a daunting task in an alien environment like Reykjavík. I applaud his bravery for these pioneering scouting trips, which are saving me countless hours of research.

We also get bang-on observations of Icelandic culture and tastes. Specific bars, and the optimum times to strike, even their racial preferences (which could come in useful for me as I'm black and English). There's also a great list of useful tourist info, food and drink prices etc, with helpful comparisons to Scandinavia (Copenhagen's one of my favourite places... stop laughing).

Simply put; THE comprehensive guide to arm yourself with before going into battle on the ice.

If you're thinking of going to Iceland, you'll need this in your armory.

You've got no-one to blame other than yourself if you don't.

Also, Last Call Game. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

Keep on writing; your insights are really helping me out, kind of like a "Game Genie". Get it? I am funny.

As a single Icelandic woman, I think it's my obligation to read this book. I'm pretty liberal, like most of the people here, but I often find that I need to be careful in relations with unfamiliar foreigners. They tend to either get offended by my humor or lead on by my openness. I'd love to find out if I find a description of myself in that book, which is likely since my type is very common in Iceland. Independent, strong, liberal and last, but not least, very well aware of my own personal values. This may sound ambiguous, but it's really not if you look at it from our point of view. Icelandic women give themselves the same permissions as our men give themselves. If they get educated, we will get educated. If they get to vote, we will vote. If they get to run the country, we will run the country. If they get to have sex without considering themselves sluts, we will have sex without considering ourselves sluts. We are equal to our men, in every way possible. We still have some final pushing and demanding to do before it's as much in practice as in theory, but that's how it is. We demand, insist and we take it. If they don't like it, we will live just fine without them. That's how we've become one of the most liberal countries in the world when it comes to women's rights.

Now, I will not speak for people that are in committed relationships. I have committed myself several times in my life and I have never cheated so I speak as a single person. And as a single person, man or woman, I have needs and desires. Just as every other person on this planet. I'm allowed to date and I'm allowed to have sex with other people that I date. I'm also allowed, if I so chose and as gross as that may be to other people, to have one night stands with strangers. Men allow themselves to do that. So why shouldn't we? I mean, it's us they're ******* around with during such slut sessions. It takes two to tango, you know :-)

I know this book will raise hell in Iceland, it will insult many of us (well, many of my sisters). But I choose to just look at it as a documentation of Icelandic women, as seen from the eyes of a tourist, cruising around the nightlife of Reykjavík City. Yeah, been there. Done that. I know what he's looking at, so I won't object to his observation, whatever it may be (Just ordered the book, still need to read it). And while I'm curious to see his view, I still know that whatever he's describing, is only a fraction of the female population in Iceland, I have many friends that never go out and I know lots of people that love to go out but don't sleep around. I hope Icelandic women won't take this to personally, if you find yourself described in this book it's probably 'cos it may as well have been you. If not, then the dude isn't talking about you, he's talking about someone else.

P.s. I'm assuming, of course, that this is not fiction :-D

Susan Nelson says:
Better read the part about how he decides to rape the really drunk woman. ("In the U.S. this would be called rape"...) before you write a really long review of the book. Read the reviews by other men calling the attitudes toward women offensive.
