      He who controls dreams, controls the world He who controls hair, controls women Hair has always been one of the major features that attract attention in women and men Beautiful locks, lovely bangs, sleek ponytails, highlights, volume, curls.This book puts hair in the centre of the story, albeit in a different light It is an unusual novel, innovative, modern, disturbing, unique.Having previously read Purge by Sofi Oksanen and with When the Doves Disappeared on hold I ve recently started it,actual [...]

      Qual a liga o entre mulheres cujos cabelos crescem quil metros por hora e outras que est o no neg cio das barrigas de aluguer Como cada vez que pego no livro me ponho a matutar porque raio compro e leio estes livros, n o consigo concentrar me para tirar qualquer conclus o O melhor desistir e dedicar me a coisas menos cabeludas

      4 stars.This is my first from Oksanen 4 stars In the core of the book there is a girl Norma whose hair has magic abilities It grows really fast and she can sense other people s mental states with it The story begins when the Norma s mother dies and she is left alone to uncover all the things that she has been hiding from her.First when I read the synopsis I thought this book won t be up my alley I had the preconception that it ll be like that Disney movie Tangled But boy, I was wrong The story q [...]

      Norma in an interesting mixture of social awareness, fantasy, and detective novel from the internationally brightest star of the Finnish literary field, Sofi Oksanen Through its structure, some fairly good characters, and a well defined style, the novel is fairly easy to read despite its dark topical undertows Norma tries to cope with the death of her mother by sticking to the usual day rhythm However, with her release from her job, mysterious abilities, and faces from the past returning, this s [...]

      2.5 3 stars stars Interesting, and weird A main character with magical, constantly growing hair that reacts to lies, moods, threats References to Rapunzel Major, worldwide market in hair, and in surrogacy baby farms This, pretty much sums up the author s central point of this story.He who controls dreams, controls the world He who controls hair, controls women He who controls women s reproduction, controls men He who keeps women satisfied, also satisfies men, and he who seduces people with fever [...]

      No voi kamalaa, en tied mit t st sanoisin Olen lukenut Sofi Oksaselta vain Puhdistus kirjan Se oli huikea ja Oksasen t ytyy olla spesiaali kirjailijana ja ihmisen Norma ei ollut kovin spesiaali Paitsi aiheeltaan hiuslis kebisnes What Ja hiukset, jotka ovat ensimm inen aisti No ehk Sofi Oksasella on siit kokemusta Alku ei vastannut laatustandardeja Ajattelin, ett vain mutta sitten alkoi l yty tuttua vihaa v ryyden ja v hemmist jen puolesta Ja tarina, joka pikkaisen kiinnosti Joten annoin Uskon j [...]

      So this didn t turn out to be the book I expected totally my fault as I it was a cover buy and I only read the first few sentences before buying it This left me happily surprised by the fact that our main character had magic hair, or something along that lines What I wasn t happy about was that it turned out to be a mystery written in a style of mystery writing I don t particularly like.The book had a lot of interesting aspects and the story is interesting, though for me it dragged in the middle [...]

      Tarina oli rimm isen nopea lukuinen ja sen fantasialla maustettuun realismiin koukuttui melkeinp huomaamatta Vaikka Sofin vaikuttava kirjoitustyyli puri j lleen, en syttynyt tarinaan oikeastaan miss n vaiheessa, vaan enemm kin janosin tiet mit n in erikoisella kirjalla tavoiteltiin ja mik sen sanoma tulisi olemaan Juoneen kuului rikollisuutta, rakkautta, kummallista pime bisnest naisten hiuksilla ja kohduilla sek yliluonnollisia voimia Sanomaksi taisi j d , ett naisten kroppa on rahastettavia va [...]

      Norma oli ihan hyv , mutta ei muuta Eniten siit tuli dekkariviboja, mielest ni se paljon puhuttu maaginen realismi tuli vain esille ep tavallisen tukan muodossa, kirjoitustyyliss se ei n kynyt toisin kuin vaikka Murakamilla T rkeist aiheistahan Oksanen kirjoittaa, hiusten, kohtujen, naisten myynnist Kirjoitustyyli ei vaan ved puoleensa ainakaan minua T ss kirjassa h iritsi my s vahvasti se, ett puhuttiin hulluudesta, ja viitattiin skitsofreniaan ja p ihderiippuvuuteen, mutta lopussa j i kuitenki [...]

    11. Essi says:

      Norma on hyvin erilainen teos muihin Oksasiin verrattuna, mik tuntui aluksi virkist v lt vaihtelulta Jotain j i kuitenkin puuttumaan Henkil hahmot j iv t ohuiksi ja ep selviksi ja lukijalle raskaiksi muistaa ja Normastaakaan ei oikein saanut otetta Tuntuu, ett nyky n ei julkaista mit n muuta kuin kirjoja, joissa seurataan saman suvun eri sukupolvien tarinaa rikkin isell aikajanalla, eik Normakaan ollut t ss mieless poikkeus Fantasiaelementeist taas pidin kovasti ja kaipasin paljon lis tietoa Kok [...]

    13. Kirsty says:

      I really enjoyed Sofi Oksanen s Purge when I read it a few years ago, but was really rather disappointed with When the Doves Disappeared As far as I am aware, Norma is the third of her novels to be translated into English, and I decided to read it for the Finland stop on my Around the World in 80 Books challenge I wasn t entirely sure that I would enjoy it before I began, particularly with regard to the less realistic elements of the storyline It did not pull me in at all, and I ended up only re [...]

      Sorry to say, but I was disappointed The story line was confusing, and the style and intensity varied alot and not intentionally Please read and check if you get the same feeling and share my view I hope you get out of this book.

    20. Jennifer says:

      this just didn t work for me a bit too out there for me to suspend disbelief with certain aspects of the story, and i found it to be convoluted than it needed to be.

    21. Cat says:

      To start with, let me tell you a short story regarding this book.On the 16th of December last year I moved out of my previous apartment to the new one, so, to prevent putting the book somewhere I would then forget about in the confusion of bags and boxes, I took the Fnac bag where this book had been in my purse, along with the book I was currently reading then The Remains of the Day, by Kazuo Ishiguro.When I arrived, after a hectic and tiring morning, I took the bag with the book out of my purse [...]

      Romaanin kiehtova konsepti ja kantaaottavuus ilahduttaa, samoin maaginen realismi Teoksessa on virkist v h iritsevyytt , jota olisin mielell ni n hnyt kehitelt v n pidemm lle Teemayhdistelm j kuitenkin aika ontuvaksi ja henkil hahmot kolisevat p ss pelkkin nimin , joista ei saa koko lukukokemuksen aikana kunnon otetta.

    24. Janni Christensen says:

      Jeg har ikke s meget at sige om denne bog, andet end jeg ikke anbefaler at l se den Spild af min tid Alt for indviklet, alt for sn rklet og slutningen var slet ikke passende, for hvad der var lagt op til.

    25. Erika says:

      All I really have to say is that I can t believe that Sofi Oksanen actually wrote this I ll say the book itself was okay, but I have so much higher expectations for the author I didn t really get the magical realism thing It showed only in one thing really and in my opinion it was quite stupid It wasn t exciting and it just left me really why please stop feelings But anyhow, I d say that you won t miss a thing if you choose not to read this point.

    26. Siiri says:

      I was excited to pick up this book, since the author is Finnish Estonian If I had to describe this book with one word, it would be weird It is a thriller with a touch of fantasy to it and it revolves around hair extensions and surrogate pregnancies, topics that are not often covered in the books I usually read As well, I was happy that I could read all the names in the book without thinking about whether or not I was pronouncing them correctly All in all, this was a different read, in a good way [...]
