If you’ve never read it, I can’t explain it. Go get a copy from your local library. Bjarki, if you can, you should read it. I think you’d really like it. I believe there’s a French adaption, not to say you couldn’t read the English version, but I figured it’s easier than having to translate a couple hundred pages of English O.O before you even blink an eye at the movie trailer, read the book. It’s worth it. The characters are great. The story line is great. The narrator’s even better. I know all I’m giving is my overly biased opinion and no real explanation of the story, but it’s worth searching for and figuring out yourself. It’s a beautiful piece of work.
