Title: Fatherhood

Author: Karl Ove Knausgaard

Type: Non-Fiction

Page Count/Review Word Count: 124

Rating: 2.5/5



After enjoying Babies in this series of Vintage Mini Moderns, I was kind of expecting to enjoy this one. Not the case, though. I think the issue is that Babies covered pregnancy and birth, which was interesting to learn about, whereas Fatherhood was just all about this dad talking about his kids.

I’m bored enough of people talking about their kids through Facebook, so this book just bored the pants off me. Easily the weakest book in the collection so far, and that’s counting the fact that Aldous Huxley’s Psychedelics turned out to just be the unabridged text of The Doors of Perception. Eh.
