Summer beach recommendation. Bold stuff for the ladies. BA - It´s not a shy and blushing young girl novel Hole has written. NTB
Humor, self-irony and romantic intricacies are the ingredients. The heroine is ambitious, sex-fixated and in search for the great love. But New York has been replaced by Oslo. Henne
Hole has a wonderful form of expression that goes straight to my heart.
I´m laughing out loud quite often.
A humorous and captivating story.
About Lotte-Marie, the funniest books in Norway. Readers of both gender are fascinated by the character's complexity, her courage and her consistent strength, but even the strongest can sometimes become fragile and insecure. This changing shift in a human being and what possibly causes it, is what makes a person and a story interesting.
Good entertainment and humor are universal. But the books about Lotte-Marie are not only considered sexy and funny - they also promote important questions regarding societal development and human behavior which makes these books highly socially relevant. Hole also write articles about sex, cohabitation and self-development, and her articles about "Leadership through inner motivation" are widely used in management and academic literature, as well in her own books.
Trude Helén Hole masters the art of balancing strength and vulnerability, humor and seriousness. Her pen is fast, steady and easygoing. Her texts are unique both in form and content - and Hole has according to what is said about her - almost created her own literary genre with her books about Lotte-Marie.
Dice roll 6. Torill Andersen
I have not read all her books yet. But if she writes as well as in The Story, they definitely can be recommended. I have never laughed so much at such a sensual embodied autobiography. Funny, teasing and brutally honest. Dice roll 6!

I read a lot of books and I´m not easily impressed anymore, so this was just absolutely amazing! Marianne H. Jensen
Well written and very funny. Laughed all the way throughout the book. Åge Grønning
I could not put down The Story - what an entertaining and lively book. Strong reading, liberating honesty and lots of wonderful humor. Hole is a really skilled, tough, raw, funny, fearless and not at least a honest author. Kjersti Meidell
Trude Helén Hole writes absolutely wonderful and straight forward. When I read I could hear her voice. Some of it came strong to me. Hole is truly an unique writer! Trine Lise Jagge
Hysterically funny book, laughed until I cried. Miles from Goethe which I also like. Lasse Østervold
Fresh language and a lot of funny pictures and scenes. Hole has probably invented her own genre with these books.

I have read 4 of Hole's books and I love them all, but The Story is my favorite so far! Øyvind Janbu Berg
Highly recommended! The Story is definitely a fun, untraditional and not least unique book. The author lets you completely into the unknown and writes unfiltered. Terje Storm Unhjem
LoL! Wonderfully liberating and brilliant literature with intelligent humor - the stories get me in a good mood, but also inspire reflection. The book offers both high entertainment and ethical values, and is only getting better and better. The author appears to be advanced and completely unique on this planet! Her beautiful fresh style surpasses all others.
