Highly detailed, "experimental" writing which pulls the reader deeply into the life of the author. While it is about everyday experiences, the inner life is rich, intense and unsparingly honest. Some of the passages resonated so much, they have stayed with me for a long time after completing the book.

Knausgård is a fantastic writer who can make the most mundane incidents seem fascinating. What surprised me about this volume was how much humour there was in it. Highly recommended.

Not as good as the first book, but a very good read. He verbalizes what everyone else (I think) thinks. Guys his age will really identify with him.

A Man in Love by Karl Ove Knausgaard is rated by me as 5 stars. It is a truly brilliant book, filled with courage, angst, life and truth! One of Karl Ove's quotes is "Risking everthing is essentially what literature is about." Bravo Karl Ove, you have risked everything and you have produced a stunning book!
