It looks like a good read, but unfortunately I can't find any bookstores on line who carry it...Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Boaders...all nill..



Try Powell’s Books in Portland Oregon, Goalienan, it is huge a whole city block long, they have an on line link and I have gone there and found rare signed first additions of a lot of books, and if not dry independent book dealers in Jersey and New York City, don’t give up upon your search, you will find it…

Good Luck...

That's strange, they've said they ship worldwide:

Try using this form and ask if they do ship or not original.gif

I like the first chapter of the first book.  My wife and I are always looking for new books to add to our already bulging library.

A newcomer asked to be shown the way to the monastery, and Chao-chou replied:  "Have you finished eating your rice?... Then go wash your bowl!"  Therupon the monk gained instant enlightenment.

I read the books for the first time back in 1993 and have read all of them about once every 2 years. Still love them and always will.
I managed to find all of them in first edition, in Icelandic (my language).
After this series come 2 new ones. The Magician (possible translation) and The kingdom of light (possible translation).
Both from the same author and both breathtakingly good, they continue with the story and add a few new caracters.
I was so happy to get to read more about the Ice people after I finished the first series, missed them all like crazy after finishing.

I recommend reading them and don't give up if you hit a long book or one of the 3 medium good ones. Keep going, it will be rewarding afterwards.

I envy you all the first time read of the series, tears and laughs. I'm sure you wont be disappointed.

Happy reading :tsu:

My girlfriend (back then) started reading this book-series Sagan om Isfolket back in the 90´s when all the 47 books were written.
After she read around 2-3 books I was asking her about it ans she said; "Oh boy, you sure wanna start reading this. You are gonna love it". I was a bit hesitant because she usually read sappy love novels. But she kept nagging me and I start reading the first one (Trollbunden) with quite a bit of scepticism, thinking it would be some cheap dime novel. But it sucked me in, like a jet-engine, and I read the 3 first books that day/night.

The further I got into the series the better it got, and finally all I did was reading this series. You just cant let it go, you just have to know how it develops. I say this, it would have been a torture for me to not have the whole collection of 47 books available to read in a single thread. But when I started reading it, luckily she had written the whole suite.
I went through them like an actual bookworm.

I envy you who haven't read them yet, you are in for a treat. But be prepared for quite a bit of separation-anxiety when you finished the last book. It was like saying goodbye and farewell to a family, and a long good friendship.

I like to read books more than once just for that reason. It's like visiting an old friend you haven't seen in a while.
