I et nøtteskall: Fritzel-kjelleren er trygghet og verden er usikker, den mest to-somme historien siden Albert Åberg.
“Before I didn’t even know to be mad that we can’t open Door, my head was too small to have Outside in it. When I was a little kid I thought like a little kid, but now I’m five I know everything”
“Also everywhere I’m looking at kids, adults mostly don’t seem to like them, not even the parents do. They call the kids gorgeous and so cute, they make the kids do the thing all over again so they can take a photo, but they don’t want to actually play with them, they’d rather drink coffee talking to other adults. Sometimes there’s a small kid crying and the Ma of it doesn’t even hear”
“Lots of the world seems to be a repeat.”
Tanker i ettertid: Om du setter pris på godt språk og intelligente tankerekker blir du jo litt skuffet over at fortelleren er 5 år og aldri har vært utenfor hageskuret han ble født i, men interessant er det likevel – og ingen kunne fortalt historien bedre.
