Group Read: The Long Ships em 2013 Category Challenge (Agosto 2013)


Hilariously acerbic this is the story of the somewhat hypochondriac Norsman and sometime viking Orm Tosteson, how he was captured and went with his captors viking along the European coast and followed a chance rescued Jew to Spain where he and a handful of crew members served on galleys and then as guards until they could head north again. Many further adventure, somewhat episodic follow though there are significant domestic interludes, often just as interesting as the adventures. This is best taken a few chapters, one or two adventures at a time, but it is quite the worthwhile journey.… (mais)

Orm Punainen seikkailee viikinkiaikana niin Espanjan alueella, Englannin länsirannikolla, kotona Ruotsissa, kuin Dnepr-joen koskillakin. Kirjoitustyyli tempaisi helposti mukaansa.

This book was written in the 1940s in Sweden, and is considered one of the finest Swedish books ever written. It is still very popular there. It takes place around the year 1000, and is the the adventures and life of a Viking named Orm, called "Red Orm" because of his hair. He travels throughout Europe, has quests, is enslaved for a couple of years and escapes, finds a wife (and treasure), meets kings, and becomes a Christian. He settles down and has children, but still becomes involved in various adventures that take him into what is now Russia. The author writes well and creates very interesting and believable characters, both male and female (including some historical personages). I like the fact that Red Orm, despite being a Viking and going through many battles and adventures is a bit of a hypochondriac, always saying that he will die soon from a wound or injury! It is a long book (over 500 pages), but reads quickly because it is hard to put down! It reminds me of one of the classic Icelandic Sagas written around the 13th Century, which I love reading. In the 1960s, it was made into a not very good movie in Hollywood, which had almost nothing to do with the book. I recommend reading it if you get a chance, it is readily available.… (mais)

Picaresque. The story is told as told stories. Could have been shorter. Has an Edgar Rice Burroughs quality, but some humor. From the NYRB out-of-print series.
