A science fiction novella about two people going into a portal of a furniture store that leads to other dimensions to find a lost person. The story is interesting mainly just due to its gimmick. There wasn't much of an actual, interesting storyline. It does have commentary of capitalism and work environment. ( )

2.5 stars rounded up.

Hmm... I don't know. I liked the story. It's told in a pretty fun way. But I think this would work better as a movie. The worlds they travelled to weren't fleshed out very well. The same with the relationship between the main characters. While the relationship between the other characters were.

***before reading***
I'm trying to minimise my ... how do you say that in English? Ecological footprint? Is that the right term?. So less buying the physical stuff online and more when I actually go to shops. Also more E-pubs. Because I'm a rereader/collector so buying something I love will decrease the books I have to bring to the secondhand bookstore which also sucks because i have to carry all that stuff.

Why this weird introduction? Because this book is like a weird sci-fi version of IKEA, right? And I always buy way too many useless stuff in there. Here's hoping this won't be one of them. ( )

{First of 2(?) LitenVerse series; urban fantasy, parallel universes, adventure} (2020)

This was an intriguing concept where two workers (just-broken-up partners) work in ho-hum jobs at a furniture store (with a sky blue and sunflower yellow logo, so not one you'd know) and discover a dimensional wormhole. Apparently this is a not unheard of occurrence and connects our world's version of LitenVärld with LitenVärlds in other universes, some of which may be inimical. Since staff cutbacks have dispensed with the division that deals with such wormholes, Ava and her ex, Jules (who is genderless and very touchy about being assigned a gender by customers), are - as the two newest employees - volunteered to find the elderly customer who has wandered across the divide with only the 'FINNA' device and a quick viewing of a video (as in on a VHS cassette) to help them. The FINNA can locate the missing customer and then point the way back to our universe in case the original wormhole collapses.

Since the original wormhole does collapse, they have to work their way back to our Earth via other worlds, each with their own unique version of LitenVärld. And their own unique dangers.

Told from Ava's point of view, the book also deals with the relationship between the two protagonists. I found the different versions of the world interesting but the book was quite short and didn't really have time to explore the worlds nor for me to establish a rapport with the characters; there were some instances where I thought I should have been shocked but I was still processing the different worlds and so they just felt like part of the narrative.

I also found the use of 'them', 'they' etc in referring to Jules quite confusing, especially when the words were used in both the singular and plural (referring to both Jules and Ava together) in the same paragraph although I appreciate that both Jules and the author don't want to be assigned a gender.

I did enjoy the story, short as it was, and look forward to reading the sequel.

Summer 2021 (June);

Another one I expected to love more than I did. I love the crazy concept of IKEA, though I don't shop there and I abhor most of what I have heard about their staff treatment. This treatise on it as a land with wormholes, being explored by two recently ex-lovers, one a lesbian and the other non-binary, and the salty old, empowered captain-pirate lady they find, should have been right up my alley. But, again, it just falls flatter than I wanted it to.

This felt short and rushed, and I wish we'd gotten more of everything on the other side of the portal. I wanted more focus on the portal world and the mental health rebuilding of the main character more than it all being contingent on their (even post-ending) codependence of worth based on the other main character. The thing the author seems to have gotten the most right and had the most fun with was 1-2 sentence descriptions of the cubby-setup rooms in the IKEA. Every single one of those made me smile. ( )

This novella has been lying on my tbr for a long while and I just kept putting it off, but readathons are always a good time to pick up such forgotten ones. This one was interesting and funny, I loved the whole idea of a multiverse in an IKEA and the satirical writing style really works for this kind of story. However, I can’t say that the plot was memorable - it was cool but due to the short nature of the novella, it felt a bit underdeveloped and I think it would have been nicer to get to know the characters more. But it was also intriguing enough that I requested the advance copy of the companion novel and already excited to get to it immediately. ( )
