Summary Ekkoland

Ekkoland Free download ï 4 Summary Ekkoland Twelve year old Arvid and his family are on holiday staying with his grandparents in Denmark Confused by the underlying tension between his mother and grandmother Arvid is grappli. Echoland was a random borrow for me from the library due to the short length and the fact this was originally written in Danish but now translated to English Set in Denmark during the summer a young boy called Arvid who is 12 and staying with family members some of them having a rocky relationship with others and now that Arvid is getting older he is feeling lost about who he is and why there are tensions amongst his loved ones I liked the Scandinavian setting as I have ancestral connections to that part of the world The last few chapters sadly ruined my reading experience a little the pacing was far too rushed and some moments didn t seem explained well The ending itself was very rushed and not what I was expecting

It has been a while since I have read Per Pettersen I have certainly missed him and have read all the previous translations My only problem with several of his books are that they are too short and Echoland is indeed that but having said that it is up there with his very best I was surprised to read it was written than 30 years ago and yet bears those similar trademarks and pillars of his recent work Out Stealing Horses To Siberia In The WakeIt is the story of a 12 year old boy s summer holiday on the Danish coast He is a Norwegian of Italian descent and arrives with his family by yacht It is easy to identify with as many of us will have had similar holidays when we were 12 and in that respect it is a coming of age story a memorable and significant two weeks in a young boy s lifeThis is what Pettersen does so well During the two weeks much of Arvid s time is spent cycling around the coast and with a slightly older friend that he meets Mogen One time when they are at the almost deserted beach they see a young couple cavorting in what they think is privacy this is a sexual awakening for young Arvid He smokes for the first time Death plays a role also his uncle his recently died and the death of his brother after living for just a few weeks plays heavily on his mind His new friend is athletic and confident Arvid is less so with a shyness and perhaps degree of almost autism As with Out Stealing Horses and his other work there are stand out and memorable scenes for the reader as they are for the young person that have a powerful effect meeting the bull in the field fishing with Mogen and meeting the girl on the beach for exampleArvid reads as much as he can during his vacation Pelle The Conueror features highly it also is a beautiful story and another wonderful insight into Scandinavian history either of the two movies I recommend as well as the book This novella is powerful stuff and shows how much an author can cram into 100 or so pages though I think twice that would have made it even so

Summer in Denmark is the setting Beautiful sea wide skies beach bikes what s not to likeIf you are just twelve a boy unsettled with his family confused about changes with his feelings and body it s maybe not so great Arvid and his mom dad and sister go by boat to stay with his mom s parents for a holiday This seems like an annual thing but there are underlying currents of tension between the adults angers long buried secrets and all this spills over making Arvid act out and recklessly soBeautiful imagery language complicated characters Newly translated in 2016 but published in 1989 Echoland is still very much a theme that speaks to each of us Petterson is an engaging writer so much so that while I was reading the book outside in our garden with the wind rustling the leaves of our maple tree the images of the sea gulls boats sand and brilliant sunshine so made me want to shut my eyes and enjoy the scene maybe stretch out and take a short nap Savour the momentI love this passage page 20 Arvid and Mogens raced along the road by the beach Arvid on his second hand Swithun and Mogens on his standard black Danish boneshaker with the laughably small luggage rack They stopped at the old kiosk and each bought a Giant Eskimo and pedalled on with one hand holding the ice cream and the other pointing to the sky which was fine because the bikes themselves knew where they were going As for Arvid s youthful angst we all get it The troubles in his family add a dangerous element to the mix as we find out at the endA thoughtful read one to skim back through and re visit a couple of scenes and pages Poignant Moving A very very good book
