Kay Xander Mellish Î 3 summaryThis was a fun small read It wasn t very truthful though She s got some things right but mostly it is just speculation based on vague ideas I think Mellish have a good interesting writing style but she exaggerated stereotypes to a degree that was borderline ridiculous sometimes As a Dane I found it entertaining but I also felt a bit offended by it Mainly because I wouldn t want foreigners to read this book and think this is the truth of Denmark Most Danes would eat the Bree cheese at work if nothing just to be polite Women also et men offer to help carrying bags or open the door It might be shocking for an american to see an eual society between sexes but still the roles are not inverted here The winters are not as snowy or cold as described and what s up
"with stereotyping some very common names for old "stereotyping some very common names for old only when plenty of people were named that in their 20s when the book was published I could go on but I won t just one thing I think the most offensive besides the chapter about stereotypes was the chapter explaining that Danes cheat because otherwise their sex ives have no excitement because talking about sex is not a tabu here That s just not true But it was a funny read It might be considered as a good introduction "For Someone Who Has "someone who has moved into Denmark but otherwise it is too superficial with way too many problems Thanks for this one as well CJ As a Dane this was a hilarious read and all tho most things were based on stereotypes and a bit exaggerated there was uite a ot of truth to many of these observations and even tho I m Danish I feel Womens Political Activism in Palestine like Iearned a thing or two about my country But mostly I just had a huge augh I was really fascinated by the writing style.
