You might as well take it easy. The unnamed narrator is almost anti-protagonist. He seems like the sort of person that needs to be e-mailed. It’s almost like a minimal novel which appeals to me. Refresh and try again.

Editions of Naïve. Super by Erlend Loe

Want to Read Currently Reading Read. I speculate about making a list of things that excite me today. But finding a girlfriend helps, as does a trip overseas to NYC to visit his brother. Our times are not the same. I suppose this is a short book about the feeling of not knowing what to do any more. Sarki rated it it was amazing Shelves: Apr 06, Anita Dalton rated supeg it was amazing Shelves: All I can say is that you can’t enter this novel expecting too much to happen–this isn’t nnaivus novel with huge story arcs and climaxes.


Carl Sagan would walk around on a set that was meant to look like space, speaking in large numbers. Nope, my instincts was right the first time because this novel suuuuucked! You will find no naivvus descriptions in this book. I like reading them. I wrote him a long nice one with loads of questions, but the one he gives in the book is defunct and when I contacted his publisher they started asking questions.

He worked at a psychiatric clinic, and was later a freelance journalist for Norwegian newspaper Adresseavisen.

Naïve. Super by Erlend Loe

This was a quick, easy and erend read. This is why it’s super. In the end, the narrator visits his brother in New York City and returns to Norway with a renewed sense of meaning in life.

There are people and animals. The narration is also deceptively simple.

When his brother returns from his trip, he realizes the protagonist is having a gentle nervous breakdown combined with a mild existential crisis, and cares for the protagonist, including taking him on a trip to New York. Almost like a quarter-life crisis.


Naïve. Super

Erlend Loe is a Norwegian novelist. The observations he makes are often profound and clever without him realising it. Thanks for telling us about the problem. On one of the shows he sat in front of a tank full of all the substances human beings are made of.

What is going nakvus His over-adjustment to this uncomfortable predicament is to simply throw a ball against a wall all night or repeatedly hammer wooden pegs into a board. An easy, fun and excellent read. That having been said, in the midst of such simplicity, this is a deeply funny book.

Naive Super is probably the most influential book I’ve read in terms of my own writing. He reads a book by Paul Davies and also engages in repetitive childish activities such as playing with wooden BRIO children’s toys and repeatedly throwing a ball against a wall.

This is a simple novel.
