    A young Finnish woman travels from Moscow to Ulan Bator by train in the 1980s I believe the author has made the same journey herself in her youth She shares the train compartment with a Russian man in his forties.This wasn t a fast book to read because Liksom uses very descriptive language and even some strange words to describe the nature, sometimes I even wondered if she were colour blind The descriptions of the faraway towns in Siberia and the reality of the life in the Soviet Union wer A young Finnish woman travels from Moscow to Ulan Bator by train in the 1980s I believe the author has made the same journey herself in her youth She shares the train compartment with a Russian man in his forties.This wasn t a fast book to read because Liksom uses very descriptive language and even some strange words to describe the nature, sometimes I even wondered if she were colour blind The descriptions of the faraway towns in Siberia and the reality of the life in the Soviet Union were believable in my opinion, having twice visited one of the poorer areas in Russia and even the Soviet Union as a child The Russian man was an interesting character but I am not sure if I had wanted to share a compartment with him for days or weeks, even That made reading the book sometimes uncomfortable I think for me the stories about other people were the most interesting part of the book, they felt real and maybe they were and gave a glimpse to the life of the ordinary Soviet people.This wasn t a book I personally enjoyed reading and that is why I only gave it three stars but a person who enjoys reading books for their language will probably like it

    A Finnish girl embarks on a journey through Siberia on the world s most famous train and is forced to share compartment n 6 with a chatty, vulgar, yet friendly, Russian man As she travels through squalid frozen towns and stunning forests buried in snow, she thinks of who she s left behind, trying not to listen to the man s lewd stories, a mix of blatant lies and harsh truths.I loved how the book kicked off, the vague and fragmented descriptions composed of carefully selected words it all read A Finnish girl embarks on a journey through Siberia on the world s most famous train and is forced to share compartment n 6 with a chatty, vulgar, yet friendly, Russian man As she travels through squalid frozen towns and stunning forests buried in snow, she thinks of who she s left behind, trying not to listen to the man s lewd stories, a mix of blatant lies and harsh truths.I loved how the book kicked off, the vague and fragmented descriptions composed of carefully selected words it all read beautifully in Finnish , the endearing repetitions, but as the story unraveled the man s chit chat got repetitive and the lack of details slightly confusing By the last pages I was quite bored, longing for a story withconversation and a less mopey main character, not to mention a less obscene sidekick of sorts Don t misunderstand me though, this was an interesting read that tasted bitter and real, it just wasn t my cup of tea

    Compartment no 6 is a fantastic novel about travelling, the odd kinship formed between complete strangers, and about the Soviet Russia The way in which Liksom describes movement is so vivid and compelling that I could almost see the flashing landscape myself The desperation to live and the yearning to die, the apathy and passion, the poverty and garish luxury the Soviet Union that the novel describes is full of contradictions Even the most despicable travel companion somehow becomes endear Compartment no 6 is a fantastic novel about travelling, the odd kinship formed between complete strangers, and about the Soviet Russia The way in which Liksom describes movement is so vivid and compelling that I could almost see the flashing landscape myself The desperation to live and the yearning to die, the apathy and passion, the poverty and garish luxury the Soviet Union that the novel describes is full of contradictions Even the most despicable travel companion somehow becomes endearing in closed confinement Go read it

    3.5,accurately.An interesting premise, but the ending fizzles, for me More to say later There are some nice passages of descriptive writing.Here s a long review 3.5,accurately.An interesting premise, but the ending fizzles, for me More to say later There are some nice passages of descriptive writing.Here s a long review

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This feels like a book of which I will not remember anything after I m done, I often don t remember much or not nearly everything, but with this one I certainly won t rememberthan just a little The book got a big prize in Finland, and in a way I can see why I guess all the description is well written, but this is definitely not a book for me To me the story, what happens in the book, is what matters Not how well it is written or how well the characters are written In this book not muc This feels like a book of which I will not remember anything after I m done, I often don t remember much or not nearly everything, but with this one I certainly won t rememberthan just a little The book got a big prize in Finland, and in a way I can see why I guess all the description is well written, but this is definitely not a book for me To me the story, what happens in the book, is what matters Not how well it is written or how well the characters are written In this book not much does happen, in short this is a book about a girl and a man, sharing a cabin in a train from Moscow to Ulan Bator The train stops every now and again, sometimes they leave the train and head into the city, sometimes they don t The man drinks, often and a lot The girl does not speak They get to the destination They leave the train, this time for a little longer The end.Page 7 34The beginning sounds interesting, though I do not know what to expect of this book As Russian man and a Finnish woman in the same cabin of a train from Moskow to Ulan Bator of Mongolia The description of the bathroom in the train..made me shudder As I keep reading I notice that this book tells about some time in the past, like the previous book I read in Finnish, this sounds old and there s something about it I still don t like And this is true as the man talks about Soviet Union But it feels easy to read Maybe the girl has no idea what the man is saying I don t recall her ever saying anything Only seeing Like his wife, beaten Him, stopping her from leaving the cabin when she wanted And the knife He does offer her things to eat and drink I can only imagine how I would feel if I was her Whether she understands or not If she does, maybe even worse Since he tells her about how he hits his wife.This one those books about people meeting and nothing happening, I believe There s these two and actually the reader has not been informed if she actually is Finnish or something else and Arisa, the woman who tells what and when to do in the train.Page 35 81The girl is indeed Finnish, but she has lived and studied in Russia, or was it Soviet Union. The man acts like a total jerk, she mostly listens and goes with him to where ever he wants her to go I think she must be scared of him, otherwise she wouldn t He once already tried to get her to have sex or do something sexual with him, but she left the cabin The train has stopped a few times and they have left the train to visit whatever city they have been at The girl still has not spoken, or at least it is not told to the reader It actually doesn t bother me We do get to go inside her head once in a while when there is a paragraph of her past.Page 82 188He keeps drinking alcohol and at one point he says what I ve been thinking, something like it s nice to talk to you since you don t understand anything But did it really mean she does not understand the language he speaks or that she does not understand what he means..The reader will also learn that the girl had fallen in love with Irina, the mother of her boyfriend, while he was in a psychiatric hospital because of a psychosis. in the end she did speak, but only a little They reached their destination and parted This last bit of the book was the one I liked most But this bit was pretty short She got to her hotel and heard that she would not be allowed to go out of the city and otherwise is sounded like a pretty harsh place to be in, especially as a woman The book ends when the man brings her back to her hotel, she wakes up the next day, it is her last day there and then she will fly back to Moscow I can only think, how on earth was that trip worth it for her It was over 4000km

    I read about as much as I could stand It began intriguingly but seemed to be going nowhere in an over descriptive way.
