    1. Very impressive. Half of the story is told through the eyes of Anna, a terminally ill young woman at the very end of her life. Alone in an isolated cottage on a winter's night, she reads through, and then burns, all the letters she ever received from her lover, Z. These letters provide a framework upon which she hangs the history of their relationship.The other narrator is Anna's sister Arnþrúður, who is sitting up with Valgeir (her husband) and Z as they worry about Anna's disappearance from [...]

Jos tämä kirja olisi elokuvagenre, se olisi taideleffa.Kirjassa ei oikeastaan ole juonta, vaan Annan, kuolemansairaan runoilijan, ja tämän rakastajattaren Z:n suhteesta kerrotaan takaumanomaisesti henkilöiden muistoissa, Annan runoissa ja Z:n Annalle kirjoittamissa kirjeissä. Kertojanääniä on kaksi -- Annan ja tämän sisaren Arnthrudurin ajatukset vuorottelevat luvuittain. Kirjan nimikkohenkilö Z:n pään sisälle ei päästä lainkaan ja hahmo jääkin hyvin etäiseksi. Yllättäen s [...]

Z: rakkaustarina kertoo kahdesta naisesta, Annasta ja Z:stä, jotka rakastavat toisiaan. Vaikka romanssi onkin kahden naisen välillä, on tarina niin universaali, että pääpari voisi olla ihan mitä sukupu [...]

    4. The 3 stars says more about me than the book. I really admired her poetic insights into love, loss and all the manifold emotions that come into play in relationships. It was love of Icelandic literature that led me to seek out this book: that, and a real fondness for the film Kaldaljós, or Cold Light, which was based on her book of the same name.However, if this hadn't been written by an Icelander, I confess that I wouldn't have read it, for love stories, especially ones of such introspection a [...]

    5. The most compelling, heart-hugging, life encompassing love story I have read in a long time.
