Independent People: An Epic by Halldór Laxness

Finished reading Independent People by Halldór Laxness.

This book took me the longest it has ever taken me to read, almost a year. It is nominally about sheep, though it is about a man's struggle to remain independent of his wives, his children and pretty much the rest of Iceland. The ending is perfect.
