A long and complex read, composed of intriguing, short deep dives into the intimate lives of loosely connected individuals, against a backdrop of an unusually hot summer in Norway. Marriages unravel, mental health struggles, illness and addiction strain families under the glare of a strange star which seems to have a kind of magnifying effect on both the faith and inconstancy of the characters.

Excerpts

I opened the door of Kenneth's room and looked in. He lay snoring, on his back. That only an hour or so earlier he'd been lying in the forest as if he'd been dead hardly seemed believable.
With that giant tramping around him.
What had happened, actually?
Page 564, added by Sian Davies212.

It demonstrates how the mundane can become frightening so quickly with one extra sentence. It also indicates the general sense of confusion that both the reader and apparently the characters require.
