Overview Naiv. Super

The 25-year-old main character of Naiv. Super. has two friends. One good and one bad. And then he has a not too sympathetic brother. When this brother beats him in a game of crocket, his world falls apart.
Naiv. Super. is a simple story about complicated things.

'Loe certainly has some of Salinger's lightness of touch, and often comic voice of his unnamed narrator recalls Salinger's Holden Caulfield. A charming debut novel.'

'A little masterpiece'

'It is fascinating, how much depth this young author can convey in a simple language - a major talent.'
Oldenburgische Volkzeitung, Germany

'A book overflowing with creative talent on just about every page. Well calculated naivety.'

Reviews Naiv. Super

"Anmelderen begynner å skrive lister, han også. Det bør leseren også gjøre. Skriv denne boken på listen. Innkjøpslisten."

Erik Fosnes Hansen, Aftenposten

"Om jeg var ung og leste Naiv.Super. skulle jeg i ren inspirasjon selv ville bli forfatter."

Göran Tunström

"en bok som bobler av lystig skrivekunst på så godt som hver eneste side. (...) en liten genistrek i den naivistiske sjanger."

Øystein Rottem, Dagbladet

"Og min spådom er at Erlend Loe med denne boken vil vekke vel så stor interesse for filosofiske spørsmål hos sine lesere som Jostein Gaarder."

Arne Guttormsen, Vårt Land
