Reviews

  • How simple this novel is. How subtle. How strong. How unlike any other. It is unique. It is unforgettable. It is extraordinary.

    Doris Lessing, Independent
  • It is hard to do justice to The Ice Palace . . . The narrative is urgent, the descriptions relentlessly beautiful, the meaning as powerful as the ice piling up on the lake.

    The Times
  • Vesaas's laconic sentences are as cold and simple as ice - and as fantastic.

    The Telegraph
  • The atmosphere created is magical: rather than explaining something, he will just plant a poetic statement and let it grow within you.

    The Telegraph
  • But if I had to choose a book I'm surprised isn't the most famous book in the world it might be The Ice Palace by Tarjei Vesaas.

    Max Porter, Times Literary Supplement
  • A haunting story, full of ice and wind and poetry.
