To all Norwegians, Norwads, and affiliated Vikings: The first three Meantime Stories are out, all dressed in native costumes, speaking our mother tongue. Oh, can you hear the Hardanger fiddle’s strings sing of polar bears, cross country skiing, and free healthcare services!
Anyone preferring Ø to Oe, or Å to Aa, can now lean back with a cup of fresh brew and enjoy a little Meantime, in Norwegian! And we promise: The action is just as active, and the fun just as funny, as in the Anglo-Americano-versions.
Here’s what some of our customers have said, so far:
“I laughed till I cried and laughed some more!” (5/5 stars)
“I laughed so hard that it must count as aerobic exercise.” (5/5 stars)
“I did enjoy it rather” (1/5 stars) (Now, when you give one out of five stars and still find it enjoyable, it sure says something, doesn’t it?! 😊)
“Awfully seductive tale of power, politics and poo.” (Readers’ favorite 5/5 stars)
“Douglas Adams meets Game of Thrones!” (5/5 stars)
