    Download Flugfällan 107 FlugfällanBy coincidence I reuested them months apart this and a volume of Harry Martinson’s poems arrived at the library for me to read in tandem How fortunate because Sjoberg refers often to Martinson’s nature poems But Sjoberg has a nonchalant approach to life it seems than the darker Martinson didI often retreat to a remote place on the southern part of the island to read the landscape On a gentle slope at the edge of a wood between a hayfield and an avenue of high voltage towers there is a large stand of broad leaved sermountain growing among the oaks and hazels which when the sun is at its zenith attracts fantastic hordes of insects to its large white umbels I usually see the noble chafer there Gnorimus nobilis and out on the hayfield without a care in the world are Burnet moths to whose odd color only Harry Martison gives full justice “The prime colour of the wing is a dark in

    Download Flugfällan 107 FlugfällanThis has to be one of the uirkiest books I've ever read I wonder how to describe it to youWell the author who is Swedish and lives on a very small island population 300 in the winter 3000 in the summer off the coast east of Stockholm is an entomologist as an avocation I assume and also a writer His specialty is hoverflies also called flower flies which he collects I had never even heard of h

    Download Flugfällan 107 FlugfällanNot sure what to think about this book It is a meditation on the nature of obsession on collectors on explorers on classification And just when you think it is all about entomology it suddenly ends with a discussion about art and forgeries There are some witty and profound observations about life and human nature but it's not a novel or a coherent memoir as such It feels like a loose collection of thoughts and essays rather than a coherent

    Download Flugfällan 107 FlugfällanInsightful gentle and brimful with good humour and uirkiness Granted the memoir of an amateur entomologist living on a remote Swedish island seems infertile ground for a good read But at the time I wanted something where nothing terrible happens so I broke my usual 'fiction only' rule and chose this And part of the book's charm is that it is soothing Sure the entomologist Fredrik Sjoberg cheerfully admits to carrying enough cyanide to kill all 300 people on the island but he only uses it on hoverflies his specialty The geographical reach of the book is small but his observations of the larger world are acute The reader certainly learns about a lot than just hoverflies and entomology thanks to the author's insights into human nature and his impressive knowledge of literature as well as natural history Sjoberg's musings are also often hilarious His dismissive cursory account of someone inuiring about establishing an EU backed horseradish farm on the island to make environmentally

    Download Flugfällan 107 FlugfällanWhen I read memoirs I find that I can generally connect with the author as long as he or she is passionate about something It doesn’t particularly matter what the author is passionate about as long as that passion and enthusiasm is conveyed in a way that draws me in and makes me care This book is a wonderful example of that – Fredrik Sjöberg is passionate about hoverfliesI like reading nature memoirs think Annie Dillard or Bernd Heinrich but I have no interest in entomology in general or in flies specifically Yet Sjöberg made me care He writes with genuine warmth and depth about wandering through meadows and pastures in search of hoverflies He describes nature as a language—and collecting and studying as a way to understand that language deeplyTo be fair the book is about than just hoverflies Sjöberg talks uite a bit about the psychology of collecti
