The Marvelous Misadventures of Ingrid Winter – by J.S. Drangsholt

I would prefer to not keep company with the main character of this book, nor anyone within her business sphere. If you are into addle-brained, neorotic, self-centered people, you may like her, but I’ll take a pass. There were too many times reading this book when I wanted to reach out and slap Ingrid Winter up the side of the head in a most likely failed attempt to wake her up out of her self-absorbed existence.

On the other hand, the book was easy to read. The educational system political machinations that form a large part of the plot to this book surely come from the author’s personal experiences as a teacher and ring true, the same as office politics in any business. In the end, I did finish the book, so I guess it wasn’t too terrible sticking it out.

To each his own, I suppose. Maybe I’m not Norwegian enough to appreciate the story, which was originally written in Norwegian. Let’s mark it up to that, rather than weariness of reading about a woman who will probably never get her shit together in life.
