Varatohtori Virta Pohjoisnavalla

Fiction: Mikko Lensu: Varatohtori Virta Pohjoisnavalla (Teos, 2005)

A children’s book about an expedition through the polar sea. The author makes an effort towards whimsy, but his style doesn’t really stretch that far. It reads like someone in the natural sciences trying to be lighthearted and failing. On the upside, you can see in the way its written that the author has personal experience in the polar regions.

My wife loved this phrase: “Fritsistä ja Helmutista oli hauskaa vaaniskella toisiaan.”
