    I read Beyond Sing the Woods almost a decade ago, but I m still in awe of it It formed in my mind one of those perfect book memories, if you know what I mean Sometimes a book just comes at the right time and place Yes, I was deeply impressed with this novel but I also read it at the right time, when I was craving and not even knowing it for a book like this one I don t think I ve ever read a prose as poetic in a novel up to that point Many thanks to the translator who made this book sing for me in my mother tongue Beyond Sings the Woods was recommended to me by a friend and I enjoyed every minute of reading it One of the best reading recommendations I have ever got.There are numerous reasons why I loved this novel and why I would recommend it myself, so why not write down a few of them 1 Beyond Sings the Woods is a beautiful piece of poetic prose, if there ever was one It is poetically written, something that is not easy to do and do well in a novel What is interesting is that the prose itself is often pretty straightforward, no extra embellishments and endless adjectives, but still there is something undoubtedly poetic in it Its poetry if not of the typical kind Usually it is the short stories that have lyrical characteristics, but this novel has poetic brilliance.2 The plot is well developed and it makes sense The story itself is very interesting Despite the poetic brilliance I just mentioned, Beyond Sing the Woods functions well as a novel It doesn t turn into a poem, it is very much a well structured novel The narrative follows a life of a family living in a village The conflict between the rural traditional life and a new modern world is presented perfectly The story is dynamic and interesting The plot may sound simple, but the author really succeed in making the people and the surroundings in the novel alive and that makes for a compelling read There is something for everyone love, conflicts and great descriptions of nature 3 The characterization is simply brilliant This novel is also a great study of human character In many ways, it reminds me on the great Russian realists It is always too easy to write about literature if you compare one author with another, but I cannot resist comparing it with Gogol and his masterpiece Dead Souls.4 Beyond Sings the Woods is also a lovely way to learn something about Scandinavian culture and venture away from the typical classics I don t know why, but when people speak of European classics, they often forget to think of the Scandinavian writers What I liked in particular about reading this novel is that element of something new It is always interesting to read something about a culture you re not familiar with, especially if it happens to be a great book Literature that is not written in English often gets put aside When we are talking about historical classical, only a few European or USA authors seem to get all the attention, and that s a shame This novel sparked my interest in Scandinavian culture For me it was endlessly fascinating to read a novel published in Norway many years ago There are some many aspect of Norwegian traditional culture that are interesting and this novel was a great introduction into it.5 Finally, the best thing about this novel is that there is This novel is the first novel of trilogy, but even if you don t plan to read all three novels you can read this one I only read this one and the story didn t feel unfinished I do plan to read the others, but I m waiting for the perfect timing.

    I inherited this book from my mother in a beautiful leather bound version It is a very old story and by considering the listing and how little there is to be known about this Norwegian author unfortunately clearly largely forgotten author The writing is beautifully poetic about a way of life which I am sure has disappeared in modern Norway, but might still have an influence on it s culture Would recommend this to anyone who can get hold of a second hand copy of this book, which is also available in English.

    I was impressed with this novel It was recommended to me by a friend and I enjoyed every minute of reading it There are many reasons why I loved this novel and why I would recomment it Here are some of them Beyond sings the woods is so poetically written, something that is difficult to do in a novel What is interesting is that the prose itself is pretty straighforward, no embellishments but still there is something undoubtedly poetic in it Usually it is the short stories that have lyrical characteristics, but this novel has poetic brilliance Nevertheless, it functions like a novel The narrative follows a life of a family living in a village Sounds simple Yes, but the author really succeded in making the people and the surroudings in the novel alive There is something for everyone love, conflicts and great descriptions of nature This novel is also a great study of human character In many ways, it reminds me on the great Russian realists It is always easy to write about literature if you compare one author with another, but I cannot resist comparing it with Gogol and his masterpiece Dead Souls .What I liked in particular is that element of something new It is always interesting to read something about a culture you re not fammilar with, especially if it happens to be a great book Literature that is not written in English ofen gets put aside Because of importance that English has today, it is a fact that you have a better chance to be known if you are an author writing in English This novel sparked my interest in Scandinavian culture For me it was endlessly facinating to read a novel set in Norwey There are some many aspect of Norwegian culture that are interesting and this novel was a great introduction into it.This novel is the first novel of trilogy, but even if you don t plan to read all three novels you can read this one I only read this one and the story didn t feel unfinished I ve read this novel in a Croatian translation so I guess that the original must be even better I envy those who know Norwegian language.

    The pace is a bit slow for modern reader but that is a quality at the same time It s so pleasant to dive into the past, not only of the plot but also of a time when a writer was writing Back then, books ought to have then a dynamics moral standards, characters with integrity, strong familiesEven when I rated it only with three stars, I m so happy it came to me It reminds me of some other world, full of faults but with better standards At least in literature.

    This is the English translation of the Norwegian novel by Trygve Gulbranssen To state a few predictable or cliched things about this book One it reminds me in many ways of the work of another Norwegian author Knut Hamsun, although I prefer this book to anything by Hamsun that I have read to date Two, this book is VERY Scandinavian not just in the outward obvious ways, but also in subtle ways that a person that has not lived in a Nordic country probably would not pick up on In particular to social customs, nuances, mannerisms, the habit many have of talking about people behind each others backs as well as how many of these people will often hold grudges for years on end for seemingly minor offenses to their person Three, although the level of violence doesn t quite go that extreme in Beyond Sing the Woods I can t help but be reminded of the multitude of Norse and Icelandic Sagas that I have read by this book also This novel is set in a somewhat vague time period I would guess anywhere from 1700 to the 1850 s in rural Norway It revolves around one family over than one generation with an emphasis on the head of the household family patriarch but goes into a few other directions at times too The family is supposedly descended from the old time chieftains and behaves in a proud noble way for the most part Really they were a throw back to the old time Pagan chieftains in many ways, where the leaders were owed something by the people who lived in their lands, but there was also a give and take where they were not exploiters of the land and people but overseers and protectors Another thing I loved about this book is, as another reviewer mentioned, the vivid descriptions of the Norwegian forests, mountains, sky and nature that are in this book One scene that really sticks in my mind involves a horse drawn sleigh race through the countryside and forest on a clear crisp winter night Beautiful writing that really takes you there But yeah I would highly recomend this book, although its yet another that is out of print and I don t understand why although used copies are available fairly cheap if your patient.
