    A Fairy Tale, Jonas T. Bengtsson's recently translated novel, is a love story of a very special kind: the love between father and son. It is a story of trust, loyalty and deep connections in the face of whatever obstacles might stand in the way of happiness. And there are a few of those as we slowly discover. Bengtsson's writing kept me engrossed in the story from the beginning to the end. A Fairy Tale is also a remarkable and astounding coming of age story, imagined with deep understanding for [...]

    This is a father and son tale and of coming of age story.4.5 starsThe boy (we never know his real name) tells this tale in first person present tense. It give the reader a sense of immediacy when reading.The tale begins in 1986, our young narrator is only six years old and he and his father are on the move again. They move frequently from place to place, taking few possessions with them. There is no formal schooling for the boy yet the father institutes his own kind of school when he can. The fa [...]

    This is a strange story, and I'm not quite sure what to make of it. Set in Denmark - though it could really be anywhere - it begins in 1986 when the narrator, later identified as Peter, is six years old. As the years of his peculiar childhood pass, we experience an unorthodox life through the confused view of a small boy with only one anchor in the whole world: his father. They move from place to place, as if running from someone (or something), yet even within that context his father is unusual [...]

    A touching and elegantly written coming-of-age tale, this compelling novel tells of the relationship between a troubled father and his small son. In spite of the father’s evident love for the son and his best efforts to bring him up, some damage in the father’s past makes him increasingly unable to do so. The story is narrated by the boy and we see his world through his eyes, and only gradually is the whole story revealed. More a series of vignettes than a sustained narrative, the book captu [...]

    Beautiful book, well written, touching and inspiring. It was hard putting the book down once finished Haunting.

    If you think that modern day fairy tales aren’t big business, think again. Recently it was reported that Disney’s horribly pointless animated picture Frozen has banked over 1 billion dollars in worldwide ticket sales. That impossible-to-comprehend number only takes into account the people who paid to plop their asses (and presumably their kids asses…we hope) into a movie theater seat. Imagine what happens when you add in the revenue earned from the sale of pay-per-view rentals, DVD/Blu-Ray [...]

    I won this book through First Reads.A book that warms the heart only to break it slowly, A Fairy Tale is impossible to put down. Beautifully written in understated prose Bengtsson toys with the readers emotions as he arranges his characters in different situations. Each situation is memorable and lovable for its individuality and whimsy. Almost shocking at first the portrayal of 'Peter' as an adult reflecting on his childhood instills in the reader a deep sense of nostalgia. With this reflectio [...]

    Zvláštně poutavý příběh chlapce v různých érách života. Nejvíc se mi líbila první část, kde Petr je malý kluk a se svým otcem je na neustálé cestě. Autor nám dává tušit, že něco není zcela v pořádku. Očima malého chlapce dění sice sledujeme, ale mnohokrát se můžeme pouze domnívat. Bengtsson nepředkládá vše na zlatém podnose, mluví ke čtenáři v alegoriích, nechá ho si domýšlet. Pečlivě údernými krátkými větami, které naopak příběhu do [...]

    4.5 stars. Unique and set in three parts. Told in a series of vignettes from the point of view of a boy who, first is in the care of his father - always on the run - and later as the boy starts to come I to his own as a teen and young adult. Confused and honest, but something about it felt lacking at the end - as if rushed. Nonetheless, very interesting how the story is told with a narrative voice that is detached and unemotional irrespective of what it is describing be it loneliness, love, ange [...]

    Pure and naive in the first half, secluded and veiled in the last. I felt hurt for the boy. He's had only his father to trust since he was only 6 years old. His father was as good as he could have been, it seemed. He was never harsh. He was gentle and giving unlike his own father was to him. A sad sad story. But, I guess the boy's sort of grown up to become a painter and may have a chance in Germany The ending sounded sad, but with a little hope. Just the way I like it.

    Fængslende. På een gang intens og vidtstrakt. Ca. en trediedel inde i historien får fortælleren navn, som han senere skifter efter dramatisk ændring af hans liv. Både fascinerende, tankevækkende og også lidt uforløst at dramaet ikke forklares helt.

    I was crushed by this book. Very powerfully written. It took me 3 weeks to pick it up again after one part. But I'm glad I did and pushed through to the end. Very wonderfully paced. Told from a perspective I think many of us can relate to.

    Strange when you start reading it, amazing when you've finished

    Sadly I found this an arduous read and mildly irritating. There was never a "peak" - it was just grey.

    I wasn't sure I was 'enjoying' this - very intense book to read but such a compelling story that I read til midnight last night!

    Jonas T. Bengtsson schetst in deze roman een mistroostig beeld van een disfunctionele vader- en zoonrelatie. Over dat schrijnende moment dat die mythische vaderfiguur, waar deze opgroeiende jongen zijn jeugd lang tegen opkeek, van zijn voetstuk valt en menselijke tekortkomingen blijkt te hebben. Dat hun omzwervingen en hun spannende jongensboekavonturen een litteken achterlaten bij een opgroeiend mens. En toch vormt deze jeugd voor het hoofdpersonage evenzeer een bron van inspiratie, en wordt er [...]

    I truly enjoyed this world. I poured over its pages, and I thought about it while I was away. The translation aspect does nothing to detract from it, as with some foreign language books. The art of the story remains intact. The story is simple, heartbreaking. Uplifting. There is bitter-sweetness throughout. I would recommend it, and read more from this author.

    ”Et eventyr” var en bog, der fangede mig fra starten. Den handler om en far og hans lille dreng (ved romanens begyndelse er han seks år gammel), der flytter fra sted til sted, mens de omhyggeligt sørger for at holde sig fri af det omkringliggende samfund – skiftende navne, ingen ansættelseskontrakter, ingen lånekort, intet sygesikringsbevis. Faderen og drengen er på flugt, men hvorfor og fra hvad? Hvor drengens mor? Det ved man ikke som læser. Historien ses igennem drengens øjne, og [...]

    Ah, Denmark! Land of cold temperatures and hot people! This book is a weird one. The basic premise is that a little boy and his mysterious, reckless, yet charismatic dad are living on the run. Somehow they are running from the "authorities" but we never find out why. One day they will be living in a shack and eating bread and apples, the next day they'll be living in an apartment with no running water - it just cuts from scene to scene like that. The dad is doing a bunch of different jobs - buil [...]

    Just finished A Fairy Tale by Jonas Bengtsson. Profoundly moving. Had to remind myself to breathe after turning the last page. I wrote that two days ago. The story was too fresh for me, the feelings too raw, to write more.The events that unfold in the story are told from the son's point of view, from the time he is six through to age 19. Later parts in the novel gave me the sense of the story going nowhere; but primarily, of a life only borne not lived. Other parts, earlier in the boy's life, ar [...]

    This is an odd book, which is hardly surprising as it's set in a world far away from my own in terms of the mindset of the character. I found myself intrigued as to where it was going, the journey leading places I hadn’t considered in any detail.Mehmet is compelling, describing his world through the eyes of a budding artist; it almost feels like you’re there. The people and places are vivid, with lives and thoughts of their own — the mark of a good storyteller.The 'fairy tale' created by h [...]

    Told from a child's and, later on, young adult's perspective is the story about a father and his son, who lead a strange life, permanently on the run, staying anonymously in alternating accomodations. The son accepts the nomadic circumstances without contradiction, he doesn't attend school, but instead is taught by his father in a very unconventional way. The son doesn't seem to miss much, because of the unconditional, protecting and liberating love his father shows towards him, regardless of th [...]

    I can give this book only two stars even though I acknowledge its literary value. In many ways, it's an extended piece of prose, sometimes lyrical, often whimsical and filled with angst worthy of a German romantic poet.But the subject matter is in the end depressing. I found Bengssson's choice of structure generally annoying: an endless series of vignettes, snapshots of moments in time, seemingly irrelevant events (a few of which turn out to be of consequence, but most not).Nor is the protagonis [...]

    A Fairy Tale is the story of a young boy and his journey into manhood. Through his life, you see how the actions of those around him impact and influence his life as he grows older, especially his dad. The style of writing is continuously evolving with the boy as he matures, starting from when he's 6 to when he's around 19 or 20.The story starts with mystery and a seemingly happy picture painted through the six year old boy's eyes, but by the end has transformed into a dark, gritty tale that see [...]

    Ákaflega falleg saga um náið samband föður og sonar. Hún minnti mig svolítið á ítölsku myndina "La vita e bella" þar sem pabbinn setur á svið leikrit fyrir börnin sín til að gera lífið bærilegra í útrýmingarbúðumum. Í "Ævintýri" reynir faðirinn í sífellu að skapa syni sínum fallegt og viðburðaríkt líf við ómögulegar aðstæður, sem hann á reyndar sök á sjálfur. Sagan sýnir einnig að lífið leitar mann alltaf á endanum uppi hversu mikið sem maður [...]

    This was a really, really good surprise! I really love this genre and since I didn't know what genre this book was until I picked it up, I was just so happy!I don't have a lot to say about the plot, it was just there and I enjoyed it. I think there was a little too many loose ends by the end of this book, but it wasn't something that annoyed me too much.The characters I enjoyed as well. You don't know the real names of the characters, and that just added to the enjoyment of this book. I really l [...]
