Saga Land The Sydney Morning Herald VideoRap Battle - ZOMBIE LAND SAGA
It is the mythology and the history and the current culture. It captures the story of chess player Bobby. It is not a dry read, the language just flows, a year story.
There is even a chapter near the end that explains why we still have these sagas This is a great read for its mix of subject- it is not just a collection of Norse mythology or deep history.
There is even a chapter near the end that explains why we still have these sagas preserved at all and it might surprise you.
Imagine books- or more likely animal skins - stored in barns and used to strain Or cut for shoe soles, and a man spends 13 years to collect the fragments and there you have the great story of it coming together.
But no, then you have a fire in Copenhagen where they were stored. And we have what was rescued in a cart.
It was a powerful point for me - how long something when hidden is safe but where it is exhumed for preservation the precious object is exposed to ruin by being loved too much or the sharp end of nature.
How do we choose? I learnt this in Yaxha, Guatemala near the Belize boarder, a very different place from Iceland but it makes me wonder.
How do you preserve without becoming an agent of destruction? This is one of the most compelling books that I've read in a while. The strands - of ancient saga, of Kari and Richard travelling through present day Iceland, and of Kari's journey to unearth his ancestry - are beautifully woven together.
Must read. I loved this book. I listened to it as an audiobook and that really added to my enjoyment. The authors voices were calm and easy to listen to and it was great to hear the proper pronunciation of the Icelandic words.
The stories of the Sagas, intertwined with the authors' journey and the true story of Kari's family discovery kept me engaged and wanting to visit Iceland more than ever.
May 26, Anna Baillie-Karas rated it really liked it. I enjoyed this mix of stories - the sagas and an account of Richard Fidler and Kari Gislasons trip to Iceland.
I was only vaguely familiar with the sagas and hadnt realised their importance. A bit too long, but a fun immersive read. I am so glad I have read Saga Land.
When I had originally been introduced to this book at a publishers roadshow event, I knew this would be a great seller. It had a previous release behind it in Ghost Empire by Fidler and his son, it has the ABC Radio publicity channels promoting it and it is getting great advertising in general by the publishers.
It is also probably helped along by the fact that shows like the History Channel's Vikings are very in vogue at the moment. The Grey haired crowd would love it.
What I didn't expect was that I would love it. Viking history drew me to it, Iceland as a setting drew me to it, history drew me to it, an Australian tie in drew me to it, the delightful square-ish hardback gift format drew me to it.
Turns out, that from right under my own nose, I was probably going to love this book the whole time. I learnt vast amounts of new things from this book.
But it felt like I was being told a story, a saga if you will, rather than having immeasurable quantities of information shoved in my brain.
Iceland and Icelandic history, culture, language, honour codes, superstitions and people are wholly fascinating.
As a very small country that is somewhat isolated from the rest of the world, there isn't a lot of places that you can get first hand information from.
Co-writing with Kari Gislason brought that aspect into the book. It made it more personal and gave Iceland a face. Whilst I felt that there was some padding done in places, the chapter on US chess grandmaster Bobby Fischer for example, and the chapter on US President Regan and the star wars program; they added the whole "Iceland's place on the modern world stage" element that was probably otherwise lacking.
Maybe these chapters could have been a little shorter and it would have felt less like these were tangents where Fidler got carried away researching.
Saga Land was otherwise very well put together. My favourite part, outside of the various sagas that were covered was discovering the world of Icelandic lullabies.
This little ditty below in particular with some explanation : Mother Mine, in the Fold, Fold A young woman who lived on a farm became pregnant.
After giving birth to the child she set it out to die of exposure, not an uncommon act before it became punishable by severe penalties.
Now one day it happened that the young woman was invited to a dancing party. However, she had no good clothes, so she stayed at home in a sour mood.
That evening, while milking the ewes in the fold, she complained aloud that for the want of a proper dress she could not go to the party.
She had scarcely spoken when she heard the following song: Mother mine, in the fold, fold You need not be so sad, sad.
You can wear my castoff rags, So you can dance, And dance. The young woman who had let her child die of exposure thought that she recognized its voice.
She took such a fright that she lost her mind and remained insane the rest of her life. Icelandic lullabies are known for their darkness, as are many traditional lullabies seriously, read the lyrics to rock-a-bye baby People sing them to children, just like they do in many other cultures, the book's closing lines are from another particularly dark lullaby written as part of Icelandic author Halldor Laxness' novel Salka Valka : Sleep now you black-eyed pig, fall in a deep pit of ghosts.
I thoroughly recommend the Bolinda audio recording by Richard Fidler and Kari Gislason, despite some weird pauses in the recording, it is well done.
Gislason and his Icelandic language skills lend a great transportational quality to the reading. A great pleasure to read.

Please note: not all stock is available in all stores. Saga Land. A gripping blend of family mystery, contemporary stories and the beautiful and bloody Viking tales, set against the starkly stunning landscape of Iceland.
They share a deep attachment to the sagas of Iceland — the true stories of the first Viking families who settled on that remote island in the Middle Ages.
These are tales of blood feuds, of dangerous women and people who are compelled to kill the ones they love the most. The sagas are among the greatest stories ever written, but the identity of their authors is largely unknown.
Together, Richard and Kari travel across Iceland, to the places where the sagas unfolded a thousand years ago. Digressive and compendious, it is a book that resists narrow classification.
There is a kind of literary precedent for Fidler and Gislason's genre-bending approach to travel literature in Letters from Iceland , the classic collection of verse and prose written by W.
Auden and Louis MacNeice that was published in MacNeice wrote in one of the poems that he went along with his friend and fellow poet Auden on the latter's proposed trip to Iceland because he had "nothing better to do".
Production Cygames announced the series, in collaboration with Avex Pictures, on July 5, The series' music will be produced by Avex Pictures, while dugout is producing the sound.
Sakura Minamoto. Ai Mizuno. Junko Konno. Lily Hoshikawa. Tae Yamada. Want to help out the wiki? When the girls get covered in mud in the first round, they are forced to keep themselves dirty to avoid washing their human makeup off, which ruins their self-advertisement.
After Tae wins first prize, Sakura remembers giving her a spare shirt and tells her to remove her muddy clothes, only to discover that the clean shirt underneath is actually for Drive-In Tori.
Meanwhile, a journalist in attendance named Shinta Okoba recognizes 4's resemblance to Junko Konno after viewing the Drive-In Tori commercial and decides to investigate her.
As Franchouchou hold a photo-op session with a small group of fans, Ai and Junko clash with each other over their different opinions on how idols should interact with their fans.
Sakura hears from Junko about how hard she tried to become an idol in life, only to die in a plane crash before her first tour in Kyushu; feeling her outdated mindset on idols is hindering the other girls, Junko contemplates leaving Franchouchou.
Meanwhile, Saki learns from Ai about how her death from a lightning strike during an outdoor concert at Tosu Stadium left her with a fear of lightning and a determination not to be overshadowed by her own death.
The next day, Kotaro announces that Franchouchou will be a part of the Saga Rock Festival, where Ai and Junko are to perform a duet, causing the group to feel uneasy.
Junko refuses to practice for Franchouchou's Saga Rock performance and locks herself away, forcing Ai to cover her portion of their duet.
On the day before the show, Kotaro assures Junko that she does not need to follow the modern standards of the idol industry, convincing her to rejoin the group.
When a thunderstorm strikes during their performance, Ai breaks down on stage and struggles to sing, but Junko lends her support and Ai recovers.
In the middle of their song, the zombies are struck by lightning, which illuminates their bodies and electrically filters their voices.
The audience and media are impressed by these effects, and Franchouchou are reported as Saga Rock's breakout idol group. As Franchouchou enjoy a string of new gigs and events, a large man named Takeo Go comes to one of their events after recognizing child star Lily Hoshikawa.
Lily reveals that the man is her father and former manager, and that she is a transgender girl formerly known as Masao Go,  who died from the shock of growing facial hair during her stressful television career.
Realizing how much Takeo cared for Lily, Franchouchou invite him to a special concert where Lily performs a special song to give him a proper goodbye.
Saki stops a public altercation between Franchouchou and the remnants of her former biker gang, Dorami, whose current leader, Maria Amabuki, is challenged by the rival gang Korosuke to a chicken race towards a cliff at Mt.
Maria accepts the challenge in defiance of her mother, Saki's friend and former Dorami boss Reiko Kirishima, who retired from the gang for a normal married life following Saki's death during an identical race in Learning of the challenge, Saki takes Maria's place using Reiko's motorcycle, which she destroys in an explosion after jumping over the cliff a second time.
After Saki returns unscathed, Reiko punches and scolds her for her recklessness, regaining Maria's respect. Saki and the rest of Franchouchou celebrate Reiko and Maria's reconciliation by performing an idol concert for both gangs.
Franchouchou are scheduled to hold a concert at local performance venue Arpino, which Sakura feels may be a clue to regaining her memories.
When the girls are sent to the mountains as part of their training, Sakura becomes annoyed that everyone is more focused on wilderness survival than practicing for the show.
As things start to become more awkward between Sakura and the others, she observes the others' teamwork and realizes she was acting selfishly.
A week before the concert, Sakura gets hit by a truck again, causing her memories to revert to when she was still alive.
Losing her memories of being a zombie on top of regaining her old ones, Sakura is left with a pessimistic belief that she can't make it as an idol.
After the others fail to reason with her, Sakura leaves the house, recalling how every attempt at trying hard at something in life led to something going wrong, including her death.
