Note that all the reading experience is in Swedish. Regarding that this book has received the PEN/Faulkner Award, California Book Award's Gold Medal, Nebula Award, ELLE Magazine's Reader's Prize and Specsavers National Book Award, I am guessing it is good in English too.
I have never been this cryptic about a book before. It made me really upset at page 98, for example (Lavender Lit 2015 edition). I understood the events better towards the more complete unfolding at the end, but leaves the question of how thought through the family's decision was, and the university's. So, is it worth the reading? Text-wise, absolutely. Yes. A yes. But be prepared for that special detail about 1/4 in to the story.
