5つ星のうち5.0 What a book, everyone should read this!
2020年9月21日に英国でレビュー済み
Like many people out there, if someone mentioned Norway, I pictured a beautiful landscape, mountains and lakes, and would say it was very much on my bucket list of places to visit before I die. I had read somewhere it was the happiest place on earth and with scenery like that I didn’t doubt it. But I have to confess, I knew very little about its people or its culture and so this book is certainly an eye-opener.

Anthony King writes honest, well-researched books, in fact, he has an incredible eye for detail – and fact-checking. He even has a book about getting the facts right, as so many books don’t. That makes this even more disconcerting – because of the disturbing facts he uncovers... a worrying truth. It means the country is not what I thought it was. I wasn’t sure what I really expected from this one. It is a tome and there are three more volumes. I wasn’t sure if I’d get through such a long book on the subject of Norway until I started to read it. I was shocked! I think the frank conversations and the huge number of interviews and observations from all across the country, kept me glued to the narrative. Though it’s not an easy read – not when you read what he discovered! But don’t dismiss it, keep reading, please, because everyone ought to read this, despite the long conversations and the emotionally tough subjects. What’s interesting is the picture painted of these people; in total contrast to what I expected to read, is actually a picture painted by the people of Norway themselves! This isn’t a travelogue based purely on the author’s observations, this is a conversation. A conversation with people from all over the country. It seems Anthony King has spoken to people from all walks of life from students to the Prime Minister herself. I was shocked to read her conversation when she agrees that for a country reported to be the happiest place to live, it has one of the highest uses of prescription medication for depression. That’s terrible.

Young people through to old people were interviewed and opened up about things they confessed to never have really thought about before, let alone spoken about; and so frankly. Though it seems the author had to work hard to get at the truth as everyone he met had these odd Jante rules. I was unfamiliar with the Janteloven before I read this, I have to say. People lie and often don’t even know they are, until someone like the author dared to point it out and eventually people spoke a truth that in places is utterly shocking. Reading dialogue like this is like reading a play, and it can be tough to read, but once you start tuning in to what these people are saying and, aided by the author’s notes and comments on his observations, you realise, along with him, that something seems to be very wrong in this country. Even how they portray themselves. Can you believe there is not a single serious book about Norway’s culture and people in any Norwegian bookshops… or it seems anywhere? Well there is now! This book has blown apart any notions I had that everything about Norway is what I have seen on travel sites. What really shocked me was how people seem to live by an odd set of rules, from mundane things like not greeting one another on a bus, ignoring one another in supermarkets (and by this I mean friends) to giving visitors wrong directions, to really serious things. By that I mean I was utterly shocked to read about corruption in schools everywhere – a society where bullying is normalised and worse. I read about racism, abuse… misrepresenting Norwegian history… why? To edit out the bits they don’t like? That make them look bad? I mean this was not what I expected and the more I read the more I thought – no wonder that hasn’t been another book about this. If these conversations are all true, and I have absolutely no reason to believe they aren’t, then this book could really stir things up, and change the way the world sees Norway. As it must! I’m not sure I will be the same again after reading this. The names have even been changed of the people who he interviewed for fear of repercussions. Norway is anything but the place I thought it was. That said, the author is keen to stress that this book was no more than a travelogue to start with until he realised something was very wrong and hence he set out on this epic journey to seek truth. But I never felt that he was trying to expose a nation; this is not about making a dramatic reveal, he seemed to genuinely like the people of Norway – he has friends in Norway and he had amazing moments in these conversations where you could feel the trust established. He has a conscience and it would seem if the country and Janteloven has created this whole façade and behind it is all this corruption, fear and denial, then someone has to speak out. I wonder why no one has done this before now? And remember this is out of their own mouths – the people of Norway. So really the author is bringing that to the world, his hope, as he says in the book, to give voice to people who are afraid to speak out and to effect change. Change is more than a necessity, it's a MUST. I am sure if you read this you will agree.

I do not usually write such long reviews, have never done so, but this book is a game-changer and I urge people to read it.

So, is Norway still on my bucket list? I am not sure, though if I do go I will do so with fresh eyes and really listen to its people who I believe are crying out for change.

What a book!

There is this futuristic film called ‘Equilibrium’, the plot is focused on the concept of suppressing emotions. People are forced to suppress emotions, and any display of emotions is considered a crime punishable by death. Having read King’s book, I wonder if Norway was an inspiration behind the script.

The book is not what I had expected at all. The scales fell from my eyes, that is certain. I used to think that Norway is this modern political utopia, a land of opportunity, a country where citizens live in harmony. King’s book proves that this is completely not the case. To give an example, I was shocked to find out about Janteloven, or the set of Norwegian norms. These norms are far from what I would describe as ’normal’.

The interviewed Norwegians display some worrisome behaviours, e.g. a lack of compassion. The book describes many instances in which Norwegians have no idea how to react to abuse, they do not know how to respond to pain. They are groomed from a young age to become emotionless robots. Emotionality is frowned upon, as is compassion, apparently.

The subjective interpretation of words is another serious problem. Dictionaries? No need. Whatever you think any given word means becomes the definition. Preference is given to an individual's subjective understanding of the word, as opposed to the meaning of the word as explained in a dictionary.

In short, King’s book exposes the different, less glamorous parts of Norway. It exposes a deeply problematic society of indoctrinated enablers who worship subjective truths and blindly condone to toxic societal norms.

The author travels across Norway, interviewing ordinary people about life in their country.
The audience is drawn from both Norwegians and foreigners alike. He even spoke to the indigenous Sami people.
The Norwegians in this book speak near perfect English, and have therefore been able to put forward their points very well. The author has included their testimonies more or less verbatim, though the names of the participants have been altered.
Most of this book is written in a style synonymous to a one on one interview with the participants orally, and then including their direct quotes unedited.
This is important, because reading the testimonies, you get as close to a first-hand account of the situation as possible, and there is a common thread which runs through them in a corroborative manner; there is an underlying system of abuse on a number of levels, which goes without any accountability, or is just not addressed properly.
If true, this reminds me of the early 1980's in Great Britain, before organisations such as Childline were setup.
I can only imagine that such organisations do not exist in Norway, or if they do, they are not very effective.
All of these issues are glued together, in part by something called Janteloven, which seems to be some sort of code of ethics and etiquettes which binds the whole of Norway together as a people.
Deviating from this code could cause the deviators to be ostracised.
The book also paints a not too rosy picture of the treatment of the Sami people, who are the indigenous inhabitants of the country. In common with many other parts of the world where there are indigenes, they have been marginalised, and according to the author’s website, the Sami will be revisited in a later volume of the book series.
There are other things mentioned in the book, which to a non-Norwegian might seem peculiar, such as not getting off the bus at your destination, because you do not want to trouble the person sat next to you. I do not know what to make of these. I can only imagine every country has its own peculiarities.
Prior to reading this book, my only knowledge of Norway was as one of the Nordic countries, where the Oslo Convention was ratified, and of course the seat of the annual Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony.
It seems that underneath that facade, there are a number of deep issues which need to be addressed and resolved at a national level. Perhaps this book will go some way towards initiating that process.

WOW!! Where to start...There is some serious denial happening in this country. Very truthful accounts in uncovering this horrific world under the veneer of Norwegian society that is undeniable. The lengthy research and studying that the author has gone to is incredible. As in the recent #metoo movement I hope some of the victims can read this book that finally exposes this “World” and be able to Finally move forward with their lives.
