language
English
3.4 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: A superbly written account of Estonia, before during and after WWII. Estonia, a tiny country, constantly occupied. First the Soviets. Then Hitler and the Germans. Then again the Communists. All the while, trying to be true to itself. But how many could wear all those hats...

review 1: Étant le troisième roman que je lis qui est écrit par Sofi Oksanen, mes attentes étaient super élevées pour cette écrivaine qui m'a vraiment jetée à terre dans ses deux premières oeuvres. Quand les colombes disparurent est un roman qui prend place majoritairement pendant la Deuxi...

review 1: Thank you to Knopf Doubleday for providing me with an egalley copy of the book for review.           I was in Tallinn, Estonia a couple months ago for the first time and fell in love with the country. It’s so rich in culture and history, yet it’s sad to see that much of the world...
Puhdistus (2008)

review 1: "Renselse" er en roman med effekten af page-turner, hvor der er mange spændingselementer og grufulde hændelser. Jeg ville dog ønske, at der ikke var så mange løse ender, hvor ubundne knuder forbliver ubundne og læserens forventning til klimask ikke forløses på en fyldestgørende m...

review 1: мені дуже подобається софі оксанен. подобається її іронічний погляд крізь леннонівські окуляри і напівусмішка. подобається, як обкладки її книжок (оригінальні) пасують до її дредів, тіней і помади. вважайте, це авторка, якою я захопилася, ще ні рядка з неї не прочитавши – а тільк...

review 1: The Purge may be the best Finnish language novel that I have ever read in that I am not aware of having read any other. It is a superb thriller in the Henning Mankell tradition about a young Russian prostitute on the run from her gangster pimps. She somehow finds her granny in ...

review 1: Sofi Oksanen is a very successful and popular Finnish-Estonian writer, although Purge is her only novel translated into English (so far...there is another coming in early 2015). Hugely successful in Europe and the winner of the Nordic Council Literature Prize, the Fnac Prize, and...
Puhdistus - Näytelmäversio (2007)
language
English
3.73 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Moderately ompelling novel about Estonia's dreadful history, but underwhelming ultimately especially after all the hype. I think something definitely was lost in translation. While I was interested in the trajectory of the story, I cared nothing for the one-dimensional characters...
