About this deal

The story brings us through acute despair to a place not of hope but of beginning to find life bearable once again. The other books in the series are also phenomenal in terms of the range they have in tone and flavour. I knew it when I was 10, I knew it when I was 18 and I'm still as sure now, at 24, after eagerly devouring the book in almost one go, yet again. Little My likes it, as it's dangerous and full of secrets and she likes that everyone is miserable - she positively lives off schadenfreude.

I loved her style already, her way with characters and nature and always leaving something on the edge. As a therapist, I can only applaud how well her characters face these problems and slightly spooked to discover the solution is something I try and teach my clients today.

Although I enjoyed this slightly less than the first reading, ten or more years ago, it was enjoyable to revisit this story and spend time with these characters. lapsena olin täitsa kindel, et see on üks lastejutt Muumitrolli ja väikese My seiklustest, aga ta on koos minuga kasvanud ja rääkinud eri lugemiskordadel ka papadest ja mammadest, keskeakriisidest ja abielust, majakavahist ja kalurist, lindudest ja raudsipelgatest.Rather, I found it a totally profound book about a crisis in masculinty, midlife crisis and the dangers of isolation. Littly My mainly disappeared and reappeared, strolled and adventured around on her own through the whole book, knowing a lot more than any other person on the island, on the story. It's a powerful and believable story about depression, and I found it moving and relevant to my life, but it's so bleak. The Moomins are imaginary creatures, who don't have jobs or schedules to follow, yet it is amazingly easy to relate to their experiences, particularly in this novel.

In fact, Moominpappa's crisis stems from the fact he has nothing to keep him occupied, a familiar problem these days, though in his case it is not due to being retired or unemployed. Stajemy się wszyscy zanadto do siebie przyzwyczajeni i wszystko jest wciąż takie samo, prawda, kochanie? Slowly, he starts to grow fond of her, and when the lamp ultimately runs out of kerosene, the Groke is no longer cold. Tatuś Muminka i morze" to książka o tym, że każdy czasem nieco irracjonalnie pragnie ucieczki gdziekolwiek, nawet i do miejsca, w którym ostatecznie wcale nie jest lepiej.The Groke, who brings cold with her wherever she goes, and cannot find companionship, follows them to the island, howling all the way. The book itself has one of the best stories ever written - full of whimsy, adventure and a tinge of melancholy. In this way, the book is a reminder of our strong connection to nature and the importance of taking time out of our busy schedules to stop and listen to it as well as ourselves.
