Reviews

  • Cosmopolitan magazine

    ”LOL warning! Single life appears yet once again uproarious as Rönkkönne writes about it admirably openly and shamelessly. You’ll snigger out loud share a sense of shame and hope that Mr Right will walk by.”

  • Kotiliesi magazine

    ”The text made me laugh so much that I had to put the book down every now and then. Alongside lightness, it has a more serious reflection on women’s body image and self-esteem.”

  • Reetta Helminen, Suomalainen bookshop

    ”ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! Great analysis on being single, relationships and how people behave in different situations. I also recommend people in relationships to embrace this book bravely. In between times, you’ll be laughing your ass off.” - Reetta Helminen, Suomalainen kirjakauppa."

  • - Niki Räsänen, Ruotuväki, the official magazine of the Finnish Defense Forces.

    ”The Bikini Borderline Case is a universal work about life, and so comfortable with itself that it lets the reader breath a sigh of relief.”

  • Karita Aarnitie, Suomalainen bookshop

    ”I love this book and the author! I’d recommend it to all friends of humour but most of all to strong women or women seeking to be strong. This book can’t be compared to any other, its outstanding!”

  • Editors Alice Huth & Friederike Zeiniger, dtv Germany

    "There is a lot of direct talk about sex in MY IMAGINARY BOYFRIEND and THE BIKINI BORDERLINE CASE, but what is negotiated at its chore are the big questions about relationships and individuation, that concern young women: Where do we come from, who are we and who do we want to be. How can and how do we want to love, live?

    With her clear, contemporary voice and her very own sense of humor, Henriikka R. describes a process of appropriation, of female empowerment. And that is an extremely liberating read."
