    I hated EVERYTHING about this book The terrible, stupid plot line, with its stupid conflicts and twists that I had to read TWICE because each event was delved into in excruciating detail by each character the chapters alternated from Benny s voice to Shrimp s The crappy poetry intro to each chapter The annoying characters, especially the librarian, who lived up to all stereotypes of a librarian by being plain and boring and shrimpy , AND all the stereotypes of crazy women by being moody I hated EVERYTHING about this book The terrible, stupid plot line, with its stupid conflicts and twists that I had to read TWICE because each event was delved into in excruciating detail by each character the chapters alternated from Benny s voice to Shrimp s The crappy poetry intro to each chapter The annoying characters, especially the librarian, who lived up to all stereotypes of a librarian by being plain and boring and shrimpy , AND all the stereotypes of crazy women by being moody and obnoxious and over reacting to everything The amazingly awful metaphors the author was fond of seriously, like 5 per page My favorite She had muscles down there like a milkmaid s hands after a whole summer up in the mountain pastures And yes, its referring to what you think its referring to And then there was the ending It was unexpected, but that didn t make it any less terrible Since none of you will hopefully punish yourselves by reading this book, I will spoil it for you They don t end up together, but Shrimp convinces him to father her children Which he agrees to, even though by now almost engaged to someone else And of course, she thinks he s NOT going to so she s crying or screaming or doing something irrational, but then he s there waiting to seduce her The end What the hell Anyway Don t read it note I didn t even mention the creepy co worker librarian with anti social tendencies who spies on people instead of making friends

    Mini Synopsis Benny is a thirty something, single, hard working, Swedish dairy farmer living on his failing family farm His mother whom worked diligently with him to keep the farm running has just passed away Shrimp is a librarian whose intellectually based life is in the near by city She has just lost her husband of several years Although opposites, the two cross paths numerous times with one another in the local cemetery when visiting their dead loved one s graves While both note their Mini Synopsis Benny is a thirty something, single, hard working, Swedish dairy farmer living on his failing family farm His mother whom worked diligently with him to keep the farm running has just passed away Shrimp is a librarian whose intellectually based life is in the near by city She has just lost her husband of several years Although opposites, the two cross paths numerous times with one another in the local cemetery when visiting their dead loved one s graves While both note their extreme differences and apparent incompatibility with the other, they soon cannot deny their physical chemistry An unlikely and complicated relationship develops ending with unexpected and unconventional results My short thoughts It was a short, slightly sad, funny, and refreshing romantic story which did not end with everyone living happily ever after I highly recommend this to any one who wants to easily step away from the conventional romance and who enjoys reading novels with a taste from another culture or in this case two I say this because the story was originally written in Swedish and then translated into British English The text reflects this and makes the writing charming and quirky having idioms from both cultures which are interesting and enjoyable

    I loved this book from the very first page Every Page had something on it that made me smile, laugh, cringe or just nod my head in agreement Katarina is so honest with her character s There were a few times where it felt like she had dipped in my head and pulled some of the thoughts that I don t admit that I think, and then put them in her book Shrimp was so many pieces of me, and that s probably not a good thing to admit, but it was refreshing I loved Benny He was just what I would pictur I loved this book from the very first page Every Page had something on it that made me smile, laugh, cringe or just nod my head in agreement Katarina is so honest with her character s There were a few times where it felt like she had dipped in my head and pulled some of the thoughts that I don t admit that I think, and then put them in her book Shrimp was so many pieces of me, and that s probably not a good thing to admit, but it was refreshing I loved Benny He was just what I would picture a guy thinking.I have to say it s not the usual romance, and the ending is not really happy, which usually bothers me, but this time I closed the book smiling I couldn t put it down all night and had to stay up sitting in my overstuffed, rundown chair with a silly grin on my face reading till I finished I was unable to put it down even though Lost was on It just spoke to me, something that few, if any, books do lately I don t know if it was the writer, or the Swedish cultural influence, but I loved it I might have to look into Swedish writersoften I hope that if you read this book, you feel the same

    Benny Shrimp is the story of two thirty something misfits Benny is a Swedish cow milk farmer who has never married Desiree, A.K.A Shrimp is a thirty something, plain Jane librarian who dresses in beige and lives an organized life in her sterile apartment She is a widow of two years.Benny and Shrimp meet in the cemetery where they go each day to visit their dearly departed Benny his parents, and Shrimp, her late husband, Orjan When they first notice each other, their private thoughts abo Benny Shrimp is the story of two thirty something misfits Benny is a Swedish cow milk farmer who has never married Desiree, A.K.A Shrimp is a thirty something, plain Jane librarian who dresses in beige and lives an organized life in her sterile apartment She is a widow of two years.Benny and Shrimp meet in the cemetery where they go each day to visit their dearly departed Benny his parents, and Shrimp, her late husband, Orjan When they first notice each other, their private thoughts about each other are less than flattering Benny And then she s there Faded, like some old color photo that s been on display for years Dried out blond hair, a pale face, white eyebrows and lashes, wishy washy pastel clothes, always something vaguely blue or beige Benny Suppose I ve spent too long with just cows for company..At the cemetery gates I ran into the beige woman I thought she d be looking at me warily, afraid smarmy Benny might fire off his lunatic smile at her again, so I knitted my brow and gave her a curt nod as I passed her Shrimp It was a clear, cold autumn day and I took my usual walk to the grave on my lunch break The Forest Owner was sitting there on the bench he glowered at me, as if I were trespassing in his own private cemetery His paws were all soily he d probably just got the day s gardening stint out of the way Wonder why he s only got three fingers.A quirky, but down to earth story that will make you smile and laugh, and perhaps even renew your belief in the fact that, if your eyes and heart are open, there is someone out there for most everyone.A satisfying read with a ending that left me wondering if a sequel, might not be in the works Give Benny Shrimp a try I think you will be pleased you did

    Some books you fall in love with at the very beginning, from page one I was in a with this little novel It begins with Desiree sitting on the bench in front of her husbands grave She is trying to feel bad enough about his death Desiree is a librarian who lives in the city Her apartment is in the minimalist in fashion and she dresses mainly in beige While at the cemetery, she sees a farmer who is constantly planting things at the gaudy, over the top plot next to her late husband.That far Some books you fall in love with at the very beginning, from page one I was in a with this little novel It begins with Desiree sitting on the bench in front of her husbands grave She is trying to feel bad enough about his death Desiree is a librarian who lives in the city Her apartment is in the minimalist in fashion and she dresses mainly in beige While at the cemetery, she sees a farmer who is constantly planting things at the gaudy, over the top plot next to her late husband.That farmer is Benny He has just lost his mother, the one person who held his house hold together Benny milks his 24 cows twice a day and her tends to all the farms needs, after that he has little time for cleaning, cooking or worrying how warm it is in the house Benny hasn t done anything to the house since his mother died, so it is full of her cross stitch and fake plants with a thick layer of dust to hold it all together.Sitting next to each other on that bench they see each other smile, and the sparks fly Benny and Desiree who he aptly names Shrimp begin a whirl wind romance like none you have ever experienced This novel was originally written in Swedish and now we have the tremendous opportunity to read this hilarious book by this inspiring author If there was anything lost in the translation you would never know it This novel is intelligent, hilarious, romantic, happy and melancholy all at one time I would not be surprised to see this one on all the BEST SELLERS list very soon

    I browse produce at the market the same way that I browse books at the library whatever looks appealing at that very moment I judge books by their covers really, is there any other logical way to choose them Sometimes, an intriguing title, an interesting illustration, or an author s name will draw me in Each time, I never know what it ll be Benny Shrimp, what a strange title And probably why I grabbed it off the M fiction shelf at the library Definitely offbeat The story begins wi I browse produce at the market the same way that I browse books at the library whatever looks appealing at that very moment I judge books by their covers really, is there any other logical way to choose them Sometimes, an intriguing title, an interesting illustration, or an author s name will draw me in Each time, I never know what it ll be Benny Shrimp, what a strange title And probably why I grabbed it off the M fiction shelf at the library Definitely offbeat The story begins with Benny Shrimp meeting each other in an unconventional pick up spot the cemetery How romantic The author does a good job getting under the skin of both of the main characters The story is told in alternating first person viewpoints and unlike some other books, the voices of the characters are completely believable I m not sure if I agree with the reviewers on the jacket coverit definitely didn t restore my faith in love , although it did put a smile on my face The author created so many barriers between these two people getting together, that towards the end, I frantically kept wondering what would happen because the pages were running out and Benny and Shrimp seemed like they were still on two different planets and there was no figurative star bridge in sight The ending was so abrupt and different from what I expected, that I m still trying to figure out whether or not I liked it or if it was a let down Borrowing Christy s phrase, the whole book was an unromantic comedy but maybe that s how life is some or most of the time

    This book begs the question, do opposites attract and if so, can it work That seems to be the theme of this book Or is it, do two lonely people who are completely opposite fall for each other just out of need Frankly, I loved this book It was a fast read, passionate and left me wondering about Benny and Shrimp s relationship I wasn t sure what I wanted from them I wanted Benny to find a wife I wanted Shrimp to be that wife However, at the same, I didn t want Shrimp to be that wife Contr This book begs the question, do opposites attract and if so, can it work That seems to be the theme of this book Or is it, do two lonely people who are completely opposite fall for each other just out of need Frankly, I loved this book It was a fast read, passionate and left me wondering about Benny and Shrimp s relationship I wasn t sure what I wanted from them I wanted Benny to find a wife I wanted Shrimp to be that wife However, at the same, I didn t want Shrimp to be that wife Contradictory, huh On the other hand, I wanted Benny, the lovable farmer, to enjoy the culture that Shrimp wants to share but at the same time I wanted Shrimp to adapt to farm life Sigh Tis love, I guess Sometimes books that were popular in their native language, doesn t translate well into English but that doesn t seem to be an issue here From Swedish to English, the point, the prose and the love came across Give this a chance, I am disappointed I didn t sooner This is definitely one I will read again

    This slim novel was as addicting as the blurb on the cover claimed The chapters are 3 4 pages and alternate between Benny and Shrimp s version of the same story It s a rather quiet story that had me smiling much of the time The main characters are in their mid late 30s and getting worried that life is passing them by Instead of observing, they want to participate in life So they take a leap and strike up an unlikely friendship that becomes muchbut what They reach a point where they This slim novel was as addicting as the blurb on the cover claimed The chapters are 3 4 pages and alternate between Benny and Shrimp s version of the same story It s a rather quiet story that had me smiling much of the time The main characters are in their mid late 30s and getting worried that life is passing them by Instead of observing, they want to participate in life So they take a leap and strike up an unlikely friendship that becomes muchbut what They reach a point where they know it s time to make a big decision I don t want to give away anyof the book but I will encourage you to make time to read Benny Shrimp I m glad I did and hope you will enjoy it as much as I did Note Also included in the book is a QA with the author as well as discussion questions In the interview Katarina Mazetti says she wrote a sequel a few years after Benny Shrimp was published Has anyone read it I searched online but didn t find any mention of it Maybe there isn t an English translation yet

    It s rare that I come across a novel that I can t find fault with Benny Shrimp happens to be one of those rare books.Mazetti has a way of holding your attention despite the fact that nothing much happens It s such a simple story, yet the romance between the main characters is anything but Benny Shrimp is not plot driven, it s character driven Such stories require a great deal in the way of characterization and, with such lovable, quirky figures, Mazetti gives us just that.The ways that b It s rare that I come across a novel that I can t find fault with Benny Shrimp happens to be one of those rare books.Mazetti has a way of holding your attention despite the fact that nothing much happens It s such a simple story, yet the romance between the main characters is anything but Benny Shrimp is not plot driven, it s character driven Such stories require a great deal in the way of characterization and, with such lovable, quirky figures, Mazetti gives us just that.The ways that both Benny and Shrimp describe their world and the events that occur between them are so honest I quite enjoyed how the alternating points of view allowed for a complete understanding of both characters, their actions, and their developing relationshipTo continue reading this review, visit my blog, The Eclectic Book Lover
