The Butterfly Effect by Pernille Rygg

Gosh I'm ripping through them at the moment! Easy to do when a lot of your reading list is made up of children's books! This is another library book picked up on a whim. Will be interesting to see how I go with it as it is a translation from Norwegian and I generally haven't had great success with translated books. I tend to find the writing clunky and difficult. I choose to believe it's due to the translation, rather than the author. I'm sure in their own language most of these books live up to the potential I originally see in them.

As a translated book I really enjoyed Irene Nemirovsky's 'Suite Francaise'

Some things seem to lose their romance in the translation and it can be hard going.
