Reviews Hva vil folk si

Ukas bokanbefaling 13.11.2019

Det hender bøker blir filmer. Og det hender filmer blir bøker. Sånn som denne. Det er ikke alltid det er like vellykket – verken ene eller andre veien. Men her er det det!
(...)
«Hva vil folk si?» er godt skrevet, lettlest og med en driv, som gjør at du bare må lese videre. Jeg leste den på en kveld, men den slipper ikke taket. Dette er både en viktig og en god bok. Og temaet må vi tørre å snakke om, for som Iram Haq sier i et intervju: «Dette må aldri skje mer».
