If you enjoyed reading the My Struggle series, I’m pretty sure you’ll also like this book from Knausgaard. In the Morning Star Knaugsaard is examining the climate crises through a study of the human being. After reading this book I felt like I had read something “unique”, and I was unsure what genre to put it in.. Is it fantasy, science fiction, horror? Well, the book consists of several stories told, taking place in southern Norway and in Bergen. Knausgaard’s attention to detail and the way he describes human behavior and emotion is what always makes me look forward to reading one of his books. Be prepared for a very special reading experience.
“Is there a star burning itself out? Why then has no one seen it before? Or is it a brand new star? Slowly the interest in the news subsides, and life goes on, but not quite as before, for unusual phenomena begin to occur on the fringes of human existence. Over these days in August, the characters the novel follows will each understand what is happening differently, and all face new struggles in their own lives.The Morning Star is a novel about what we do not understand, about great drama seen through the limited lens of little lives.”
