Author: Sjon Genre: ,

I felt this book was an abstract from a far longer story…I simply needed more details ..
It is set in 1918, in Iceland during the book it covers; the erupting volcano Katla, a coal shortage, Spanish flu epidemic which kills many and the continuation of the the Great War.

The main character is a 16 year old boy who lives for the movies, you experience the reality and the dreams of this boy.

Loved the writing style though.
