Reviews

How simple this novel is. How subtle. How strong. How unlike any other. It is unique. It is unforgettable. It is extraordinary. -- Doris Lessing * Independent *
It is hard to do justice to The Ice Palace . . . The narrative is urgent, the descriptions relentlessly beautiful, the meaning as powerful as the ice piling up on the lake. * The Times *
Vesaas's laconic sentences are as cold and simple as ice - and as fantastic. * The Telegraph *
The atmosphere created is magical: rather than explaining something, he will just plant a poetic statement and let it grow within you. * The Telegraph *
But if I had to choose a book I'm surprised isn't the most famous book in the world it might be The Ice Palace by Tarjei Vesaas. -- Max Porter * Times Literary Supplement *
A haunting story, full of ice and wind and poetry. -- Dea Brovig * The Guardian *
