But the fact is, Doppler lives in a tent in a forrest just on the edge of Oslo and to sustain himself, he steals from the nearby houses — and he kills an elk. They play games, they have long talks, they pee together and just hang out. They build a sort of father-son relationship which is obvious since Doppler just lost his father — but strange, since he has a young son at home, missing him.
This is not the only father-son relationship. His son eventually joins him in the forrest and Doppler also meets a man who spends his time recreating the part of World War II where his father lost his life.

It is difficult for him to find peace in the forest since he gets company soon, both from other people and from his young son. It was worth it. If this book was intended to portray the meaningless and shallow ramblings of a mildly and uninterestingly demented and very ordinary man whom very few of us could find to be a sympathetic character, then Erlend Loe has succeeded. There is room in the story line to make this an interesting and amusing book that could provide some insightful social commentary, but Loe did not do that.
Instead he has given us drivel that only occasionally provides some mild, but unsustained, amusement, that is on the whole utterly uninteresting, and that completely fails in any of its half-hearted attempts at commentary. A real disappointment. How did this book get published?
This book happened at exactly the right time in my life. I've come to a point where the things, and moments, that had meant something for SO long, have now become frivolous, and unnecessary.
I pretty much wanted to highlight every other sentence in this novel, and if I hadn't borrowed it from work, I probably would have. Also, I have not laughed out loud the way I did while reading this book in a very, very long time. Doppler lived a life of man with a wife and two children, one teenaged girl, the other, a boy, still floating through a cloud of innocence at the precious age of 3.
We don't meet their acquaintance initially though, as the book opens into an expanse of greenery, and open air-the forest, Doppler's new residence. We learn that after living a rather routine life, and upon hearing that his father has died, Doppler-with the help of a painful epiphany-has given it all up, packed it all in..
He has also adopted a moose-calf, and is quite content with it all. Such a simple joy this book was. I savoured Doppler's days of leisure, and commended him for turning his back on the conventional.
Though I didn't exactly agree with this lack of responsibility for his family, I found myself wishing that we could all be so lucky-to find happiness in the less obvious things.
It made me feel privileged in the worst way, sitting in my room, on my fancy leather couch, sipping from fancy mug of tea, reading the truths of truths. From one day to the next. I saw it all in a flash and realised that the difference is so overwhelming that the mind has to acknowledge its limitations and pass.
All the things you can be and have, a then at the drop of a hat all things you cannot be and have because you have been and had for the last time.
I felt the love in that relationship more strongly than I feel with characters in a romantic situation-this was pure, and not one bit contrived.
I also appreciated Doppler's ability to contradict his beliefs, and quite easily at that-in his quest to abandon society, he ended up unintentionally helping others in their own search for meaning. It's corny, but it gave me a new sort of hope for humanity-people can be good, even when they don't mean to be.
This book was short, and brimming with meaning. I recommend it to anyone who ever sought to think beyond the daily routines and obligations of life. Anyone who's ever just wanted to say, "No, I'm not doing that today.
I think I'll go for a walk instead. That person needs to read this book. See all 11 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.

It is difficult for him to find peace in the forest since he gets company soon, both from other people and from his young son. Maybe the novel is more intended to show us that we are really not capable of living this way anymore?
It is quirky in a lot of ways and there were parts of it I really liked.
Maybe even dreamed of that? It was very distracting. Now we would have to take sides in Iraq.
I love this quote and it shows something very true about our way of life, I think.All the things you can be and have, a then at the drop of a hat all things you cannot be and have because you have been and had for the last time. Over the course of the eleven stories in it I fell in love with the world Yates was writing about.
