I have a (mostly) book review blog called All From Books that can be found here http://www.allfrombooks.com/ Here's an excerpt from my latest review, which is of From the Mouth of the Whale by Sjón. This book has a lot of twists and turns, but it is fascinating. I have no idea about whether the superstitions and beliefs are accurate for the 15th century Iceland, but I would like to believe so. Sjón includes what I believe are period accurate superstitions about things like coral in little sections that have a feel of a dictionary. These seem to be randomly interspersed throughout the book, but tells the tales of sea serpents and some possible home remedies. Jonas narrates the story, and I got the feeling that he was a little crazy. This was the first time that I felt like I was actually reading a story by an unreliable narrator. I’ve been told in school about unreliable narrators and read stories that featured them, but I was never able to really feel that they were unreliable myself. I mean any story from a first person narration needs to be examined from all ends, not just narrator. In this book, there were small discrepancies and it made the story more enjoyable and entertaining as I tried to figure out if Jonas was losing his mind or just leaving out details on purpose.
