Review: The Almost Nearly Perfect People: Behind the Myth of the Scandinavian Utopia by Michael Booth

Now that does seem like a very unfair score but when I don't finish a book I can't justify more than 1 star. I did get halfway through this and it was interesting and funny, the problem was that the subject being tackled was hugely broad and this just felt like a rambling journey and one man's opinion of Scandinavia (Booth does live in Denmark but he is not actually Danish). Non-fiction that isn't historical doesn't tend to hold my interest for long so he should be applauded for getting me to page 187 before giving up, perhaps I just needed more Vikings!
