    This book was difficult for two reasons The first being the obvious horror and tragedy of the events it relates Imaging the incredible fear of those people kicks you right in the gut I genuinely felt sick reading parts of it The second is due to Seierstad s choice to write in a sensationalist novel format If I hadn t known the reality, I would have thought it was another badly written crime n...

    Oh my What to say about this one Seierstad has done a great job of pulling us into the world of Anders Breivik Her research has been thorough,so far as that goes, and required a lot of travel and interviewing on her part I think she has attempted to be very fair in her account, giving biographical sketches of the murderer and his victims She has certainly managed to elicit sympathy for the victims, but I think she narrowly missed the mark in other areas.B...
