EXCELLENT GERMAN REVIEWS FOR FACELIFT:
“Bestselling Finnish author Miika Nousiainen presents average guys. The fact that they speak frankly, as if into a diary, brings them close to us – also thanks to their sarcasm.”
– Hansruedi Kugler, Aargauer Zeitung, 21 August 2021
“A master of human depths and shallows […].
Quirky books, casual and, of course, full of Finnish mockery.
With all this verve and all this wit […] it’s more than a feel-good novel for me, this is really a great reckoning with what is expected of us and he does that very fast-paced and very funny.”
– Elke Schlinsog, Deutschlandfunk Kultur, 4 September 2021
“One can’t stop laughing […]!”
– Barbara Weitzel, WELT am Sonntag kompakt, 5 September 2021
“I am very happy that Miika Nousiainen has again published such a burlesque, very spirited novel.”
-Annemarie Stoltenberg, NDR Kultur, 31 August 2021
“Light as a feather and spirited.”
-Annemarie Stoltenberg, NDR Kultur Neue Bücher, 7 September 2021
“Amusing, touching without being sentimental, suspenseful and funny.”
– Sabine Gartmann, Osterholzer Kreisblatt, 20 August 2021
“Enjoyably written Finnish bestseller that provokes reflection.”
– Hörzu, August 2021
“Fun and philosophical.”
-Nina Berendonk, Donna, August 2021
“Miika Nousiainen’s book Quality Time skillfully plays with an overused term and, at the same time, offers an immensely entertaining reinterpretation.”
-General Anzeiger, August 14, 2021
“Delightfully silly and crazy!”
-Buchhandlung Eichwalde, Märkische Allgemeine, August 4, 2021
“Miika Nousiainen manages with humor and a flair for unbelievable developments that everything is nevertheless really good in the end.
A turbulent feel-good novel that has to be recommended, not only in our current, equally chaotic times.”
-Bad Aachen Magazin, August 2021
“Quality Time is a reflection of life with all its phases, everyday problems, ups, downs and imponderables – and an appeal for a conscious living together and a meaningful use of the time one has on earth. Great read, absolutely recommended!”
– Frank Rehag, Finnland-Tour.de, July 28, 2021
