Read full description of the books Vinter sagor:I think short story collections are often a bit hit or miss, but I enjoyed every single story in this collection. I think it was Oscar Wilde who said that one day we'll be old enough to read fairytales again, and I think that's definitely true for me now. These stories definitely had a fairytale-like quality to them and they were very enjoyable; not only were her descriptions of the Scandinavian region inviting, there was also a lot of wisdom to her words. The writing was also infused with biblical language and as found her writing to be deep yet light. Apparently "Out of Africa" showcases Dinesen's/Blixen's writing a lot better so I know I'm in for a treat.
