How to Live in DenmarkThis was a fun small read It wasn t very truthful though She s got some things right but mostly it is just speculation based on vague ideas I think Mellish have a good interesting writing style but she exaggerated stereotypes to a degree that was borderline ridiculous sometimes As a Dane I found it entertaining but I also felt a bit offended by it Mainly because I wouldn t want foreigners to read this book and think this is the truth of Denmark Most Danes would eat the Bree cheese at work if nothing just to be polite Women also let men offer "to help carrying bags or open the door It might be shocking for "help carrying bags or open the door It might be shocking for american to see an eual society between sexes but still the roles are not inverted here The winters are not as snowy or cold as described and what s p with stereotyping some very common names for old people only when plenty of people were named that in their 20s when the book was published I could go on but I won t just one thing I think the most offensive besides the chapter about stereotypes was the chapter explaining that Danes cheat because otherwise their sex lives have no excitement because talking about sex is not a tabu here That s just not true But it was a funny read It might be considered as a good #introduction for someone who has just moved into Denmark but otherwise it is too superficial with way #for someone who has just moved into Denmark but otherwise it is too superficial with way many problems Thanks for this
