I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Thank you to the author Roy Jacobsen and the publisher MacLehose Press for this opportunityThis is an insight into the isolated lives of the inhabitants of a Norwegian island Their daily lives are destructed and recounted for the reader and the latter portions that see the family s youngest daughter Ingrid s transfer to the main land sharply contrast with this rural way of livingI initially found the family s daily struggle for survival fascinatingly insightful into a way of life I know nothing about There were also times however that it seemed almost tortuously slow and pointless as an overtly detailed depiction of events was enumerated There is little drama and no action but there was an atmospheric uality that permeated the entire text and brought authenticity to the lives it detailed Certainly insightful as an in depth character study but overall this was lacking pace and alacrity for me

Free read Ë De usynlige 102 Barrøy Island off the North western coast of Norway a holdfast for a single family their livestock their crops their hopes and dreams And their fears There is a taint passed down the Barrøy line and Hans and Maria Barrøy fear their daughter Ingrid may be affectedThe early years of the twentieth century pro. Beginning of the twentieth century Three generations of a family try to survive in an isolated and arid island called Barroy in front of the Norwegian coast Barroy is like a universe for its inhabitants life can t be understood outside the confinement of this speck of rock dust amidst the ocean but at the same time life is continuously threatened by the hostile climate the endless periods of darkness severe snow blizzards and the unruly sea that provides sustenance but also kills mercilessly when one least expects it Barroy is like a microcosm with such a fragile balance that extinction is lurking around the corner incessantly and miracles are performed daily when the sun goes down with no other death than the vanishing light Straddling the naturalist genre and the family saga The Unseen is a realistic account but also a lyrical chant of devastating beauty where time is the only element that fragments the rhythmical hues of the prose achieving Shakespearean tonalities when all kind of inclement weather is describedBeyond the coast line seasons roll on implacably without any trace of the bucolic ideal and the Barroy family endures the years with stoicism and laconic humor that combine a uniue blend of resignation and wisdom Individual identities get diffused in the collective entity of the island of which they are masters and slaves at onceJacobsen paints a timeless portrait of a bygone era of a working class that vanished in the last century the kind of people that founded the actual pillars of Norway His style is as delicate as it is brutal bared and clean drenched with contemplative passages of landscape architecture that address existential ponderings such as the inexorable ties between land and identity destiny and freedom tradition and evolution And the eternity of silence The weight of thoughts never expressed out loud The burden of being disappointed by one s dreams In one of the last chapters Ingrid the main protagonist of this tale of woe and glory muses on the sounds of the island Rushing winds seagulls calling while soaring the damp skies the roaring of the waves and murmurs of the cliffs make silence a rarity in her world But once in a while on a very special occasion all the elements seem to hold their breath at once and the land listens in a void of expectation hearing its own pulse And everything turns into horizon and one can touch eternity and know that she is where she is supposed to be Determinant but nameless Safe but unseen
