In a literary blog, editor Marna Jacobsen writes: "the book is exceptionally good, everything is a coherent whole; brilliant illustrations, brilliant poems and they are so well written that it makes me incredibly happy to be part of the people who understand Faroese: everything can be said and written in Faroese". Katarina Nolsøe gives an account of how she slowly returns to her normal self and learns to live with the scars of depression. The Book is published by Sprotin.
