    1 thought on “Eksil”

    1. Trigger warnings: rape, attempted rape, abortion, drug abuse, animal cruelty, racism, alcohol abuse, violence, slut shaming, domestic violence. When I saw this book at my local library last weekend, I was instantly intrigued. I mean, a story about ex-pat brats growing up in Tanzania that's been translated from Danish? It ticked a lot of boxes for me. And I will say this - it's incredibly readable. The chapters are short - often no more than one or two pages - and so I found myself saying "Just o [...]

    2. Finished December 12, 2015.Finished September 9, 2009. Jacob Ejersbo is a Danish writer who unfortunately died last year only 40 years old, leaving behind three manuscripts, Eksil (Title in English: Exile) being the first one published. So far two has been published and the reviewers in Denmark have been going wild, especially about book two Revolution. Ejersbo has previously published the very popular Nordkraft that was made into a movie. Eksil is my first novel by Ejersbo and although it was n [...]

    3. I loved this book, but it is such a difficult book to review. It’s hard to describe in words why this book was so engaging. It’s not your typical novel with a start, middle and ending. Rather, it reads like a memoir in the sense that it follows the protagonist over several years of her life.Fifteen year old Samantha is not necessarily a likeable protagonist. She smokes, drinks, has a gutter mouth and is highly sexualised. But there is something very charming about her; she has a definite vul [...]

    4. Jeg har haft denne bog på min Kindle i årevis. Den har ikke virket tiltrækkende på mig. Men hold da op. Sikke en fantastisk overraskelse. Nu er det et par dage siden, jeg blev færdig med den. Og da jeg vågnede i morges, var den det første, jeg tænkte på. Den sidder i kroppen på mig.

    5. Det er over min fatteevne, at en mand kan beskrive teenage-tilværelsen hos en rodløs pige så præcist. Og samtidig få beskrevet en del af hvid/sort problematikken nedenunder hovedhistorien. Læs den og få din teenage-datter til at gøre det samme!

    6. Read this in English. Usually, writing in translations tends to suffer, as it's hard to translate authorial voice. But here it actually worked well: I loved the spare, present tense writing style. It reminded me a bit of Hilary Mantel or Michael Ondaatje: sharp, quick cuts, short scenes.Unfortunately, the writing style was about the only thing I liked about this book. The plot is one-note: a year or two in the life of a bored, disaffected white expat teen, Sam, in Tanzania in the early 1980s.The [...]

    7. Eksil beskriver udfordringerne ved ikke at passe ind og altid at gøre det forkerte på en overraskende realistisk måde. Hovedpersonen Samantha bor i Afrika med sine forældre og sin storesøster Alison. Samantha er fra England, men har boet i Tanzania stort set hele sit liv. Hun er en del af et hvidt samfund, midt i det mørke Afrika, der med mere eller mindre hensynsløse metoder skaffer sig magt og penge. Søsteren rejser til England for at studere, og Samantha efterlades i Tanzania. Hverdag [...]

    8. I read this in English - ExileInteresting book thisIt tells the story of an English girl and her family in Tanzania in the early and mid 80sit is the story of white boredom in Africa; of lost kids with nothing to do and no real responsibility; of the odd structure of African society; and of the sadness of an empty childhood.I lived in Tanzania for a short while in the mid-nineties and this book really resonated with me. The ten years between the setting of the book and my time in the Africa coun [...]

    9. Hvis ikke jeg havde siddet i et S-tog da jeg havde læst den færdig, havde jeg grædt. Man har lyst til at slå på alle de dumme mennesker, trøste Samantha, slå Samantha. Jakob Ejersbo får skabt et univers rundt om Samantha, som kan minde om et spindelvæv. Hun kan ikke komme væk, men vil heller ikke væk. Det er en bog med temaerne: ungdom, socialrealisme, Afrika, stoffer, kærlighed, sex, familie, liv og tryghed. Grunden til den sidste stjerne ikke er der: jeg skulle holde tungen lige i [...]

    10. Desde “El Guardián Entre el Centeno“, cualquier novela que intente retratar el callejón sin salida de una adolescencia maldita se ha visto inevitablemente perseguida por la alargadísima sombra de la obra de Salinger. En la mayoría de los casos, la comparativa suele servir para enterrar mucho más que para ensalzar… Y lo cierto es que “Exilio” (publicada en nuestro país por Roca Editorial) bien podría verse lastrada por el recuerdo de Holden Caulfield y compañía, sobre todo porq [...]

    11. A Danish male author writes a compelling story narrated as a kind of memoir covering four years of a British girl's life living with her ex-pat family in Tanzania in the 1980s. It is a book that makes a powerful statement of the Western world in Africa. A book that is different and impressive.Samantha is 15 at the start of the book. She is independent, rebellious, hot-tempered, highly sexual. She attends a boarding school where other ex-pats and locals (native Tanzanians and Indians) attend. Her [...]

    12. Mér finnst þetta góð bók. Þetta er þroskasaga ungs fólks af vestrænum uppruna sem býr í Tanzaníu. Þetta er fyrsta bókin í trílógíu eftir Jakob Ejersbo sem hann byggir á reynslu sinni en hann ólst upp í Afríku. Jakob lést stuttu eftir að bókin var sett í hendur útgefandans. Sagan er ekki bara þroskasaga ungs fólk heldur líka saga af því hvernig vestræn ríki hafa farið með Afríku og afleiðingar arðráns þeirra. Sagan er sögð frá sjónarhóli unlingsstúlk [...]

    13. Weak writingBy sally tarbox on 8 May 2017Format: Kindle EditionIf this was being promoted as a YA book, I suppose it might just about pass muster. But the subject matter means it definitely isn't that - while the weak writing means the adult reader quickly gets bored.Set among the wealthy ex-pats of Tanzania, and narrated by 15 year old Samantha, this had the potential to tell an interesting story. Daughter of an unhappy and dysfunctional white family - Dad is distant, Mum hits the bottle and wa [...]

    14. The book is not very in depth, which runs with the story, but it makes it difficult to get into the book properly, reading it kind of makes you feel like your thinking faster that you can put words down. An odd sensation.I'll still read the other two in the trilogy and who knows hopefully they will get a little better.

    15. Jeg forstår ikke hypen. Historien kører i den samme trummerum. Ufattelig kedelig, langsom og ensformigt. Samantha laver ikke andet end at ryge, drikke, svømme, komme i problemer med skolen og dreng X og så hade England. Sproget er simpelt, minimalistisk og lige en kant for sofistikeret til at gøre romanen til en komplet teenage-agtigt angstpræget fortælling, hvorfor de to stjerner.

    16. Sproget er letlæseligt og tonen er hård. Heldigvis bliver hårdheden ikke pakket ind i hverken humor eller blødsødenhed. Bogen efterlod mig rystet og chokeret og min primære tanke var: ”Er det virkeligheden i Afrika?”

    17. Virkelig god bog. Spændende indblik i Afrikas univers set gennem øjnene på en ung hvid kvindelig jeg-fortæller - helt grå indeni efter mange år på det store kontinent. Slutningen og dramaerne undervejs gør bogen uafrystelig.

    18. The book is a dystopian description of the EXPAD society in Tanzania. DO NOT READ this book if you are considering going to Tanzania, due to you only will get dark thoughts on how the country works.The story follows a young girl living in a boarding school with the other EXPADS children in the 1980, smoking weed, having sex, sometimes raping and doing all kind of trouble to get of the boarding school. In general the children and their parents do not care about the society they are living in and [...]

    19. I quite enjoyed this read. I have already jumped into his work 'Nordkraft' previously and to me that is a Danish classic!I'm not sure this book quite lived up to my expectations but it was definitely enticing. It was not as well written as Nordkraft in my opinion, but that might have been Jakob Ejersbo's intention to make it more blunt and simple. I liked the setting, in Tanzania in the 1980's, which is also where Jakob Ejersbo spent years in his childhood. The story is so tragic and it draws pa [...]

    20. I enjoyed this book a lot. I read a review in the Independent that said the short sentences were annoying - I found it refreshing, to the point and was able to zip through the book quickly and get to the point. I'm not quite sure if this book is meant as YA - it is too saucy if so - but I'm not sure if it's full-on adult either. It's somewhere in between - which I like. I wouldn't want my kids reading it, if I had any.

    21. De første sider gør ikke meget ud af sig, men herefter lukker Ejersbo op for sit kraftfulde, realistiske sprog. Vi kommer helt ind i hovedet på en pige, der i stedet for ægte kærlighed ender med sex, stoffer, alkohol og ødelæggelse. Sådan ser det ud, når en far svigter sin datter - og når en pige ikke kan finde ro i sig selv og forsøger at være noget, hun ikke er.

    22. En dyster fortælling, der udspiller sig i Tanzania, fortalt af en 15-16 årig pige uden indhold i livet. Lidt kedelig i længden, når man for 20'ende gang får fortalt, at de tænder en cigaret eller ryger en "spliff".Men ellers en fin fortælling om rodløshed.

    23. What a devastating book. I finished Exile a few days ago and have been mulling it over, unable to shake the word ‘devastating’. I didn’t enjoy it, and found most of the characters extremely unlikeable and almost un-relatable. But I’m kind of compelled to read the next in the trilogy, which on my understanding is set in the same time period, but from the perspective of different characters. Exile is translated from the Danish, and along with the two books that follow it, was published pos [...]

    24. I started reading this not knowing what to expect but I wasn't expecting to love the book. But I loved it (mostly).To explain the "mostly" part: I hated the ending. Loathed it. I think it was awful, rushed, didn't fit in with the rest of the book and was one of those terrible endings that leave you with a, "Wait, that's it?" type of feeling - like you've read this whole book, read the character go through all of these things and in the end, there's really no closure or sense that anything was re [...]

    25. Rating - 3.5The Short Story? –For fans of Go Ask Alice, Exile is a powerful novel that tells the story of the downfall of a girl living in Tanzania, Africa. Exploring issues like drugs, sex and everything in between, Ejersbo has written a coming-to-age novel like no other. Exploring the dark side of growing up, Exile shows the ugly side of life and what happens when a good time turns bad.The Long Story? –It’s definitely outside my comfort zone and I would normally give it a pass but Exile [...]

    26. At first I thought I was not going to like this book and I nearly abandoned it. There is a very explicit rape scene and there is a scene where a cat is mistreated. However, having said that, life can be cruel and I wonder if this book attempts to describe human cruelty and superficiality at their worst. In its way it possibly illustrates the fact that society is pointing its finger at the wrong people.The story centres around a girl called Samantha. Samantha is only in her late teens. Her mother [...]

    27. This book is a must read. Absolutely a must read.It took me a couple of pages to get into this book, because there are a lot of characters. When you get to know them, everything's good. Samantha is a really strong MC, she was so well written, it's amazing. She really got under my skin. But then, so did most of these characters. Unfortunately, most of them doesn't play a big role for the story.This is my first time reading a book by Jakob Ejersbo and it took me by surprise. I haven't read anythin [...]

    28. Samantha er afrikaner. Hvid, men afrikaner. Det er sådan hun føler sig. Hun har boet i Tanzania siden hun var 3 år gammel. Da vi møder hende første gang, er hun 15 år, og går på kostskole.Mens Samantha går i skole, smuldrer hendes familie. Hendes mor, der har et alkoholproblem, rejser tilbage til England, hvor familien kommer fra. Samanthas far har travlt med forskellige lyssky forretninger. Hendes storesøster overtager driften af familiens hotel. Udenfor det hele, på kostskolen, fors [...]

    29. I did not sign up for the ending of Eksil by Jakob Ejersbo! One might say that the ending was the most obvious the author could have chosen, but I would have liked to see the main character turn out differently; I would have liked the author to show his audience that there is always hope, only there is not After I finished Eksil, a novel I received from the Danish publisher Gyldendal, I did a some research on the author and found out how he died from cancer very young. He is somewhat the prove o [...]
