Book Review: Doppler by Erlend Loe

Very interesting read. Not sure I liked the jokey portions; they sometimes came off as too flippant. Otherwise a great read about a guy who tosses everything to live in the woods…and yet who can’t find the solitude he craves when others take that as a signal to do the same and move in next to him.
I do like the redemption he achieves with his son at the end. And the fact that he doesn’t give up on his new life…he just moves on. He moves forward, really, and that’s a powerful statement.
4 stars!
