Review Trollvinter

TrollvinterFor my full review first Moomins book that I read was Finn Family Moomintroll and I fell in love Moominvalley seemed a magical place of eternal sunshine The food was plentiful the company enchanting and even when risky characters such as the Hobgoblin sunshine The food was plentiful the company enchanting and even when risky characters such as the Hobgoblin up the threat never felt particularly severe Eight year old me was in rapture But it was a library book and I was not allowed to keep checking it out indefinitely and nor was I allowed a copy of my own When I iscovered that there checking it out indefinitely and nor was I allowed a copy of my own When I iscovered that there other Moomin books I thought I had found the perfect solution When I read Moominland Midwinter however I felt I had made a terrible mistake Thingummy and Bob were gone Snufkin was travelling in foreign lands Most of the other characters were asleep Even the sun was gone I plodded to the end but it would be many years before I ventured back to Moominvalley Returning to the book now as an adult would it still seem so very gloomyThe very title of Finn Family Moomintroll confirms that it is about community and belonging a family In that respect Moominland Midwinter is its polar opposite It is an incredible perhaps even uniue study of Word Alchemy depression and loneliness on the child s eye level I can also see why it was not at all what eight year old me was expecting Moomins usually hibernate between the months of November and April but then one year Moomintroll wakes up and is unable to settle himself againThe winter which Moomintroll encounters is aisturbing one and he faces it alone As a child who longed fruitlessly every year for snow in the hope of finally testing out my sledge the idea that it could take on a sinister side seemed strange I The Black Renaissance in Francophone African and Caribbean Literatures did not realise that this was the flip side to the long sunnyays of Finn Family that now Moominvalley had to endure months of perpetual An Endless Lie darkness As an adult I have a tendency to get grumpyuring the winter months when it can too ofte So wintry and lovely My copy had 17 pages missing so I shall have to hunt them ROMANCE (BWWM Military Romance Boxset) (African American Urban Series Short Stories Book 1) down and enjoy them on their own This was and always will be my favourite Moomin book I read it the first time when I barely knew how to read and since then I read it so many times that I know it by heart It started my love for this series and it s one of the most important books I ever read for my growth as a reader Love this 3 All things are so very uncertain and that s exactly what makes me feel reassuredHad the urge to reread this because it kept popping up to my bookstagram feed so thanks guys It was even better than I remembered and a perfect December read Cynical comfort reading Jansson s stories won t warm theepths of mid winter but may encourage you to accep.
