5 comments on “The Good Lover by Steinunn Sigurðardóttir | Book Review

  1. It is always a good sign, when a book stays in your head a while after you’ve read it. I quite like the theme of out-of-reach love, but must admit that ‘the hypothetical case studies in a psychology textbook’ part doesn’t quite appeal to me!

    • Definitely! I sometimes struggle to click with a book when the characters don’t read convincingly, hence my middling rating for this, but there were certainly interesting ideas at play.

  2. I know you gave this 3 stars but it actually sounds quite fascinating. I started typing on my phone when I read your review here but I hate leaving comments by typing on the phone so I waited till I got my PC to comment here!

    Honestly what sold this to me what when you said: Each of the characters craves a kind of love that feels in some way out of reach. This for some reason just touched me so much! I love the way you write your reviews.

    I don’t want to add more books to my TBR, but I fear I have not the strength to resist this one 🙂
