Et mesterværk af en bog, der gjorde mig skiftevis rasende, trist og forhåbningsfuld. Bogen er svær at komme i gang med, fordi den alvidende fortæller skifter fra den ene til den anden og så tredje karakter i et væk - nogle gange kommer man ind i hovedet på to-tre personer på under 10 linjer. Men når først man har fundet rytmen, er det en fornøjelse at følge med i det lille fiskersamfund. Det er en stille fortælling, i den forstand at der på et ydre ikke sker det helt store. Men netop det gør, at karakternes indre liv står så meget stærkere. Fiskerne er en fortælling om hverdagen og om alle de begivenheder, der ikke ser ud af meget, men som betyder alt for os hver især.

Der er ingen tvivl om, hvad Hans Kirk tænker om den indremissionske tro. Budskabet virker til at være: Frelsen kommer ikke gennem skriftlære og bønner til en usynlig gud, men af menneskelig omsorg, den reelle næstekærlighed som bogens hovedpersoner har glemt. Og det er egentlig befriende at læse en roman, der ikke skjuler sine budskaber, som mange forfattere ville gøre i dag - måske fordi det bliver gjort så troværdigt og faktisk også respektfuldt over for det samfund, han skildrer. Og fordi det bliver gjort så nuanceret, at jeg har lyst til omgående at læse den forfra for at få det hele med. ( )

This 1928 novel is the best-selling Danish book of all time (according to the forward). It is the story of a small group of pious fishermen and their families who uproot themselves from the wild and dangerous open coast of the North Sea to a village on a fjord, with safer fishing grounds. It is a "collective novel" (like Heinessen's Windswept Dawn), in which a group microcosm rather than an individual main character is the focus. In this book, we follow the lives of these insular fishermen as they try to maintain their religion and style of living, yet incorporate themselves into their new town and fishing grounds. Highly recommended. ( )
