    One thought on “Self-Control”

    1. The second novel from Norwegian troublemaker SS who to our crushing disappointment ended his life in 2012 in his trilogy, and my second encounter with his work after the remarkable Through the Night A less engaging but twice as tormented, neurotic and grief stricken novel about a middle aged man in the muddle of his life, contemplating the ennui and ridiculousness in his marriage and vocation As the novel progresses the aimlessness of the plot transfers to aimlessness in the reading but the conc [...]

    2. How Nausea and Disgust Mask Real TragedyI loved Siamese, the first book in this so called S Trilogy It is one of the darker books I have ever read, and made me ponder just how black black can get Review here This book is quite different, and it showcases qualities of Saeterbakken that I didn t like as much his penchant for nauseating detail, which he thinks of as darkly humorous a man smells his cold sweaty feet, and wonders why he enjoys the smell his tendency to write in a succession of set pi [...]

    3. If you like books about how life sucks and we re all just one small step away from total derailment, then this one is pretty okay.

    4. A trend among Norwegian authors is this sense that language is unambiguous and so distinct that nothing said could be misunderstood There is a strong sense of clarity in Saeterbakken s prose It is exact, like washing machine instructions Or perhaps it s just the way these books come out of translation To paraphase a commentator, this book is a manual on exactly how not to live There are many parts of ourselves that we wish would remain hidden That interior is suffocating, selfish and wandering S [...]

    5. Self Control is unsettling from the start due to its narrator Andreas s unsettledness And S terbakken has a habit of initiating minor plot lines only to let them fade away, which adds to the on edge feeling the novel generates, as if one is always expecting with the turn of the page to be greeted by some dramatic, and likely horrible, climax, or at least to find further sparks of a previously lit fuse still smoldering in one s memory following its ignition earlier in the book Oddly enough, this [...]

    6. A bit sadder and less abrasive than Siamese which I quite liked , Saeterbakken s Self Control is a book about the loneliness and pervasive sadness haunting a man whose life, like many of ours, is defined only by the rote actions that constitute it.

    7. fuld af katastrofefantasier, det er herligt Afskyeligt syntes jeg at det var jeg ville ikke have at det skulle v re slut Jeg ville have en ny begyndelse Det hele igen fremmed og friskt uden nogen bestemt drejning med hensyn til hvordan det ville g hvad der ville komme til at ske Ingen afslutning Kun begyndelser Andreas tankestr m da en yderst morsom film i biografen slutter f lelsen efter endt l sning.

    8. I read Siamese and loved it, so I was really looking forward to this book, the second in the so called S trilogy Then I read reviews, mostly on , that almost all suggested that this was a let down compared to the first book Hogwash Self Control may rank higher in my estimation In some ways it is a subtle novel, though it has its share of intense moments Siamese, as great as it is, seems to be popular due to the main idea a couple, one deaf, the other blind wow, co dependence , which is why so [...]

    9. My brain doesn t know how to process Stig Saeterbakken About a year ago I read Through the Night, and liked it without really understanding why I did Self Control reads nothing like Through the Night, and I didn t like it nearly as much But there s an element to this guy s writing that s in both of them and I don t even know what to compare it to Those day to day almost but not quite Kafkaesque moments in which everything seems inexplicably ridiculous and pathetic for a moment as though for just [...]
