Quite enjoyable and a quick read. The author does a good job painting a sense of hygge. The content is good. The writing itself is a bit dull though and a little repetitive.

Good book with ideas of how to be stylish and yet live a simpler more contented and appreciative life ( ie. one filled with less anxiety ).

A beautifully designed book that helps one feel hygge whilst reading it. A much more philosophical look at this concept than many of the other books currently available.

This is the third book on huge I have read. It is my least favorite. It is a dry read compared to the other two. It does well discussing the concepts of huge. However, I found the author's voice rather un-hugged. The other two books writing was more conversational and inviting. Therefore, I would recommend reading Meir Wiking's "The Little Book of Hygge" or Signe Johansen's "How to Hygge" instead.
