Independent People - John A. Thompson, Halldór Laxness The blurp says: This magnificent novel—which secured for its author the 1955 Nobel Prize in Literature—is at last available to contemporary American readers.
My guess is that the translation into modern English spoilt it for me. I could not keep going since the story line was rather straight but the events were so blandly described, that I lost interest.

Since there are so many positive reviews, I would like to try again in a different translation to maybe give it the justice it deserves.
