    1. Stallo is a large human like creature in the Sami folklore and since the book is about giants that kidnap children is the title quite logical I listen to this book while working and since it s 600 page long was the book around 25 hours long to listen to However, by accelerating the speed to max did I manage to finish it a bit faster And, I had a pretty good reason to wanting to speed up the story I have never before had the speed to max before, but it was the only way for me to finish the book N [...]


    2. I was thinking of giving this two stars because it s not poorly written and in terms of technical elements it holds well enough together However, the degree to which this book bored me far beyond anything else I have ever read in my entire life could not bring me beyond one star.As with all books I hate, it s difficult to write a spoiler free review, so I m not even going to try It s not worth it My intention is to be done writing about it as soon as possible and then quickly forget the hours 21 [...]


    3. A haunting supernatural thriller translated from Swedish, Stallo traces the connections between two events the disappearance of a boy from a woodland cabin in 1978, and the possible sighting of a troll in a small town, 25 years later The latter is investigated by Susso, the creator of a website dedicated to supposedly mythical beings her father, a wildlife photographer, once took a picture of a strange creature which has entered family lore and sparked her obsession With her mother Gudrun and ex [...]


    4. Weirdly wonderfulIn 1978, a small boy and his mother are staying in a holiday cabin in the forests near Falun, in Sweden All seems well until the mother accidentally kills a bat that was flying around her She throws it into the undergrowth, but the next day, when she goes to the fridge, there is the dead bat lying crumpled on a shelf Now some of the forest animals begin to behave strangely, sitting motionless staring at the house The mother tells the boy to stay in but he wants to see them, so h [...]


    5. I read the Norwegian translation of this but could still taste the Swedish turns of the language beautiful Stallo is a Sami term for unnatural creatures and it fits very well with what this book is about It s part crime story, part thriller, part socio realism, and part supernatural horror I can only describe the writing style as characteristically Scandinavian and a very interesting blend between the everyday, straightforward, and the poetic.The plot ties nicely together but also leaves room fo [...]


    6. There s a great, haunting 300 page story buried somewhere within unfortunately there s another 300 pages of padding to wade through I have nothing against epic length works if the story demands it, and I love descriptive writing, but Spjut gets a bit excessive here, describing every mundane detail of the characters lives, as well as every object within their general vicinity, and it breaks up the flow and the tension far too often to keep me totally captivated and engaged But hidden within the p [...]



    7. Touted as a horror book, it disappoints The pace of the story builds nicely and is structured around a road trip and a search for answers I enjoyed the way the author creates the atmosphere of a Swedish winter, the people functional and somewhat stoic The hype on the cover peaked my interest, but the story, sadly, failed to deliver the drama, horror and pace I was hoping for Just gets an Ok from me.


    8. This review is of the English translation of STALLO, called SHAPESHIFTERS Stefan Spjut s SHAPESHIFTERS is a creepy, atmospheric horror novel about Nordic mythological creatures in modern day Sweden In 1978, a little boy is carried off from a campground by something gigantic, but no one will believe his mother s story Twenty five years later, another child goes missing, and the only lead is a photograph taken by troll hunter Susso Myren The photo shows what appears to be a gnome like creature, an [...]


    9. After having read an excellent book about trolls just before Stallo, I was hoping for the same kind of excitement Especially since it was a really long book I mean, no one writes hundreds and hundreds of pages of nonsense, right Yeah OK, they do, but I hoped it wouldn t be the case here I was part right and part wrong.The book started slowly and confusingly There were a few different storylines and point of views fortunately only a few and at first it was difficult to keep track of them all, esp [...]


    10. Finally finished I loved the opening of this, and throughout there we moments of this is good but it felt overly long and I must admit I got bored There wasn t enough action or horror, there is a scene which isn t pleasant reading but I won t say which, so as not to spoil it It wasn t bad enough for me to stop reading but I felt it needed to be shorter.To add to the aboveThis is one of those novels which starts strongly but burns itself out and just doesn t deliver It flickers into life for mome [...]


    11. B rjar fantastiskt bra, kanske en av de b sta inledningar jag l st, men sen kommer ordbajsandet Det finns m nga ljusglimtar i den h r boken men de dr nks tyv rr ofta bland alla oviktiga detaljer, och storyn som i sig r riktigt sp nnande f rsvinner bland de alldeles f r m nga sidorna 592 H lften hade r ckt Ett stort plus f r de noga utmejslade karakt rerna dock.


    12. A slow burner but a very engaging tale The supernatural creatures in this book the stallo are utterly believable and than a bit creepy.


    13. I really like the story very much It was done so that all the characters finally knew what they were faced with The ending was anything but.


    14. 3,5 for fantastisk vakre skildringer, og meget troverdige karakterer Samtidig kan en del av detaljskildringene bli dr ye Dette er en laaang roman, som kanskje kunne ha v rt mer spisset Elsket h re p den svenske lydbokversjonen i Storytel 26 timer med Mangnus Roosmanns vakre opplesning, i kombinasjon med Spjuts glitrende, poetiske svensk Kan anbefales 3


    15. T ss oli paljon hyv Kansanperinteeseen nojaava taustamytologia toimi hyvin, samoin pohjoismainen milj kuvaus, ja kahden eri juonilinjan v lill hyppiv kerronta koukutti nopeasti Toisaalta kirja oli kyll ihan liian pitk , vaikka sen nopeasti lukikin, ja v lill n k kulmien v lill hypittiin turhankin taajaan pahimmillaan parin sivun v lein , niin ettei kumpaankaan oikein ehtinyt p st kiinni ennen kuin taas vaihdettiin n k kulmaa Ja ehk tarina sittenkin lupasi enemm n kuin lopulta antoi 3,5 t hte oli [...]

    17. I bought this book because it s a horror novel published by Faber and Faber with a recommendation from Karl Ove Knausgaard That sounded like an amazing confluence of unlikely ingredients, and it kept me reading despite wanting to give up a few times.Stallo is a story that imagines trolls and shape shifters exist in our world It s written with a kind of slow burn, hollywood thriller structure A sense of mystery and with held information keep us turning the pages, and the tension is slowly increas [...]


    18. My favorite genre for the last decade has been urban fantasy shifters, vampires, demons, witches, the fae, etc, etc And some of them involve what is considered mythological creatures But I m embarrassed to say that I had to force myself to get 25% thru this book before giving up I just can t get into the story and find I could care less about the characters, who until this point at least, are incredibly stoic and don t exhibit emotions Is this a cultural thing or just the way this author writes [...]


    19. Jag har funderat en del p varf r jag inte f ll s mycket som jag hade hoppats f r Stefan Spjuts Stallo Jag har egentligen inte kommit p n got bra svar, f rutom att det inte alltid g r att f rklara p ett bra s tt Ibland blir man inte h nf rd, bara Ibland g r lite ber ttelsen en f rbi, och sidorna k nns ovanligt l nga, och boken lockar inte riktigt till att plockas upp st ndigt och j mt utan blir liggande Jag lskar tanken p troll och skrymt Flygfotografiet som Gunnar Myr n ska ha tagit i ber ttelse [...]

    21. Stallo is an electric thriller set in modern day rural Sweden think The Killing meets Fortitude with a troll or two hidden behind the odd cellar door Strange and unexplained abductions draw the reader into an ancient Scandinavian world where folklore becomes reality in the darkest way possible Filled with quiet murders and frantic car chases, this book also carefully considers and perhaps most touchingly what it means to be a family With one of the most terrifying opening chapters I ve read in t [...]


    22. This book starts with the kidnapping of a small boy while out camping with his mother Than the story shifts to a womans search for trolls, which may have been involved in the initial kidnapping that starts the book Now we have a story of this other womans troll search and also a story of humans who are helping the trolls The initial kidnapping comes back into the story about three quarters of the way through the book.Now don t let all of that complication throw you This book actually works prett [...]


    23. The story begin with how a woman brings her young son to a small cabin in the deep woods for a summer vacation With this opening chapter the author sets a brilliant, chilling and eerie mood, as the reader is infused with a sense of wild nature and mysticism But then the writing takes on another tone entirely What follows is a plain detective story, told from two sides of the mystery The reader rather soon learns what the story is really about The author manages to keep things interesting to the [...]


    24. All in all I enjoyed reading this book a lot It wasn t perfect but I couldn t put it down The way the imps and stallos were depicted was just perfect for me They were creepy but you couldn t tell if they were good or evil Not too much was revealed about them at any point Usually the magic disappears when you find out too much and apparently Spjut knows this The way the ending was handled stood out and I didn t quite understand the point of Gudrun s chapters I have nothing against Gudrun, but why [...]


    25. The idea is great, the writing very atmospheric and Susso is a likeable, strong female character So why one star The pace It Is So Slow And that ending 600 pages, just for that So unsatisfying.


    26. Tr kigt nog var denna bok en stor besvikelse Jag trodde att det skulle vara en sp nnande bok om tomtar och troll men ist llet var det en segdragen kriminalhistoria med vissa undertoner av troll.Faktiskt upplevde jag den som s d lig att jag inte avslutade den




    27. The ending wasn t as dramatic as the lead up, but the originality makes this so worth it Straight to my favourite book pile
