    • Oh, Karl Ove, you capture the heart break of the lovesick, hypersensitive teenager that speaks to our own lost teenage years And thanks for Book 2, writing of your life during your 20s and 30s, married, raising children, dealing with the whole urban banana A reader might think very self centered of a writer to pen 6 thick volumes of his life, but you, Karl Ove, are able to tap into the culture s pulse and our collective modern human experience reading your books is almost like reading our own au [...]


    • from Min kamp 1 It was now than two weeks since I had published my review of Min kamp 1, and during that time I had not posted anything new Every day, I stared at the screen, tried to begin, abandoned my unsuccessful attempt after half an hour Maybe I would never again manage to produce a meaningful piece of writing I checked my mail for the third time that afternoon Someone I didn t know said they thought it was amazing that I could read the books in the original Norwegian There s nothing much [...]


    • The original Norwegian editions of Karl Ove Knausgaard s six volume My Struggle series, presented in thick 500 page installments, have purportedly sold than a half million copies and won lots of prizes If rumors of such critical and commercial success are true, even if only in Scandinavia, it s good news for humanity, since these volumes lack traditional plot, let alone anything approaching bondage, vampires or wizards Maybe it helps that Knausgaard, a respected author of two novels before he d [...]


    • The Epic Side of Truth, Wisdom Feel like my soul has turned into steel I ve still got the scars that the sun didn t heal Not Dark Yet, Bob Dylan, 1997Prior to reading this, I was skeptical about reading a roman clef based loosely on the author s life Could he succeed in depicting a seemingly ordinary life as interesting enough to fill 4 5 6 volumes Is he the Scandinavian equivalent of the fat head fiction writers churned out from MFA programs across the nation to dazzle the cognoscenti with a wo [...]


    • Book Two of My Struggle makes good on the promise of an epic of the everyday toward the end of the book Karl Ove describes his idea of literature as a kind of participation in the gaze of another, how only diaries and essays continue to move him as works of literature because that is where one might come closest to inhabiting another s gaze on the world, another s purview onto being Thus the book he begins to write, thus the book we hold in our hands For even here among the ascetic, exhaustive d [...]


    • Though his style and agenda have nothing in common with Virginia Woolf, Karl Ove Knausg rd, too, has an outrageous and uncanny ability to mix the banal and the lofty, the quotidian and the existential without ever upsetting the balance He deals, in short, with life, and in this process he cuts off all layers of pretension and untruth and reveals the rawness, the failures, the temporary successes and the anxieties of modern life In this second installment of Knausg rd s massive opus, he zooms in [...]


    • A Man in Love The fact that paintings and, to some extent, photographs were so important for me had something to do with this They contained no words, no concepts, and when I looked at them what I experienced, what made them so important, was also non conceptual There was something stupid in this, an area that was completely devoid of intelligence, which I had difficulty acknowledgng or accepting, yet which perhaps was the most important single element of what I wanted to do Karl Ove Knausg rd, [...]


    • I really, really, really loved the first one of these, but I did not love this one It was at times a slog to get through There were some great moments and I m glad I finished it, because it ended strong, but the majority fell into the risky trap of this project, and read to me like excerpts from a self absorbed parenting blog detailing what life is like as a successful writer with a family in Sweden spoiler alert in the absence of any other worries medical bills, say, or the need to do unpleasan [...]


    • My first impression of Karl Ove Knausgaard came from a black and white photograph published with a review of his book A Time For Everything in The New York Review of Books.He is seen smoking against the rugged Norwegian landscape, hair disheveled, wearing an old, battered tee shirt, lost in thought Completely and unabashedly himself, yet ill at ease Entirely present, feet deeply rooted in the present moment, yet his mind is clearly in flight, flickering at the surface of his gaze.The striking po [...]


    • How the hell does Karl Ove I feel as though we are best friends now pull this off No way should he be managing this I loved the first magnum, despite the downward spiral of a dying alcoholic father, and now I m giving highest marks to the follow up opus as well Four books are promised to come I don t doubt it The man can go on and on and on to the point where detractors might equate his diary like approach to a diarrhea like one only with words, thank you I like Book Two despite the fact that t [...]


    • I m torn between taking part in the backlash against the Knausgaard hype because, let s be honest, there are plenty of authors deserving of front page attention from every newspaper, magazine and website with New York in the title and trying to get in early on the revisionism to the backlash, by pointing out that although Knausgaard is not Proust or Woolf, nor is he trying to be, and it s not his fault that every newspaper, magazine and website with New York in the title decided to put him on t [...]


    • Four Responses Dec 14th 2014I m on the second My Struggle book and believe it and its predecessor to be a failure, at least as it relates to me Is that arrogant Should it be I m a failure, at least as I relate to My Struggle The plain fact I ve been skipping pages, have been since the start Skipping phrases and sentences too, skimming to reach the parts that say whatever it is I like to hear Knausgaard say Not only skipping forward either, but jumping around the way I do with rock biographies, w [...]


    • A man with no roots The narrator wherever he has been has not belonged This includes his interior as well as the exterior world No wonder, as a writer, his only interest is to locate and express the truth.The truth is difficult he sees External reality is endowed with meaning but only through his eyes Otherwise it remains as objects of mass and outline However, his vision cauterized by the split between his shamed self hints of his being abused fostered by an unending castigation of his self, vo [...]

    • Marcel Reich Ranicki hat einmal gesagt Es gibt nichts Langweiligeres als Geschichten ber kleine Kinder Gl cklicherweise geht es im zweiten Band von Karl Ove Knausgards autobiografischer Romanreihe nicht ausschlie lich um kleine Kinder, man kann auch interessante Dialoge des Autors mit seinem Freund Geir verfolgen Trotzdem kann ich nach diesem Roman den Hype um Knausgard nicht ganz nachvollziehen.


    • I can t stop reading I bought the next volume as soon as I got ten pages near the end Long passages of excruciating detail of mundane events such as making a cup of tea, taking little children out to school, marital arguments over chores suddenly lit by poetry Uneasy feelings in social situations, readings in to me exotic locales, the light of memory that fades with time and the lights that don t Ruminations on art, modernism, poetry, literature, and the meaning if there is one of life I m lovin [...]


    • msarki.tumblr post 9034512As I was nearing the end of Volume II I actually felt a bit silly and embarrassed as I looked forward to reading my customary turtle paced six pages each morning I used the book as part of my daily meditation as I knew there was no way I could read it like I do novels in which I am interested in and cannot help myself in finishing than too fast And as hard as it was for me to trudge through the almost endless Knausg rd rhetoric involving changing dirty diapers and idle [...]


    • Come si fa a scrivere solo due righe su un libro cos Lo dico subito la parte migliore del libro l a tra Karl e Linda, con le loro tecniche di avvicinamento non proprio infallibili Almeno all inizio, i nostri sono bellissimi nel loro perdersi e ritrovarsi, tra mille silenzi e comportamenti imperfetti.Le cose per cambiano e periodi di felicit si alternano ad altri di buio e liti furibonde.E Linda ne esce come una rompicazzo insopportabile possessiva furiosa maniaca depressa suicide wannabe Karl, n [...]


    • We are almost finished with Volume Two of Knausgaard s six volume memoir before we learn what Knausgaard is about with this huge, unwieldy thing he calls a novel Over recent year I had increasingly lost faith in literature Fictional writing has no value, documentary narrative has no value The only genres I saw value in, which still conferred meaning, were diaries and essays, the types of literature did not deal with narrative, that were not about anything, but just consisted of a voice, the voic [...]


    • A Karl Ove lo termin s queriendo o lo termin s abandonando en la p g 30 del primer tomo al grito de K M mP Rt tU V d Sh s y M S mP rT nT Y no est mal tampoco que lo abandones si no te gusta, porque el tono no lo cambia mucho a lo largo de las p ginas y SIEMPRE va a ser as de monocorde o aburrido, as que no esperes otra cosa Bueno, despu s de terminar el segundo tomo, confirmo lo que pens con el primero crea una nueva forma de narrar, ensancha los l mites de la literatura, logra que lo literario [...]


    • Maybe because it deals with the sweetness and struggles of love and marriage, I found My Struggle, Book Two A Man in Love even compelling and enjoyable than Book One A Death in the Family Together, they are a breathtakingly honest, intimate portrayal of the ordinary lived experience and interior life of someone who ruminates about everything a self absorption that somehow transcends self We read to get out of the self, Karl Ove claims, and that rings true to me so there s something paradoxical [...]

    • Una maravilla el Karl Ove, cuando lo empec pens que hab a encontrado a una alma gemela, de qui n pod a leer todo tipo de an cdotas, sus problemas, su cotidiana, y me los contaba s lo a mi Pero despu s de 500 p ginas de sus cosas, sus broncas con Linda, sus amigos, sus cenas, sus paseos, sus pl ticas con Geir, su amigo escritor, hay algo que me empez a hacer ruido No es demasiada intimidad Ya se que en este mundo post todo, no hay mucho respeto por la vida privada, pero no se, a veces da algo de [...]


    • Great writing by a great author with a great voice, yet not the great literature Knausg rd is capable of producing I heard an interview with Knausg rd on Leonard Lopate which I think explains it all He reported that he wrote and never looked back He has not even read what he has written I did notice that he is quite wordy in this volume, there is no economy of ideas and reflections, a certain lack of editing is apparent, not to mention that one very annoying spelling mistake But honestly I did n [...]

    • What s the matter with Knausgard , what game is he playing with us Part 1 of his series bears the title Father , and that father certainly is present, but rather as a threatening shadow than as an acting person the last third of that book is situated around the days after his death , and in this Part 2 the title is Love , but almost constantly it is about divorces between people and quarrels between Karl Ove and his wife Linda Of course, this second part also contains very endearing passages abo [...]


    • In chronological terms, Book 2 deals with Karl Ove s falling in love, becoming a father, dealing with fame, and searching for a new writing project It is hard to crystallize the appeal of this book and yet it is magnetic for me, it s as if Knausgaard pulls you into his life And because his life is very much about the search for happiness and self acceptance, you feel that it is your life, as well There s a certain futility to it all because you know that humans are not wired for this type of hap [...]
