7. Ark Oslo Sentralstasjon

"The staff is amazing. Despite the store's very small section of fantasy books (obviously as the store itself is small), the staff knows so much about books and fantasy and really can give great suggestions. Also, fantasy section is one I revisit from time to time, even though it is small it seems to comprise of the good stuff and the quality stuff and the stuff I didnt know about, but found is awesome. The staff is very friendly and always service minded yet they give people room to browse in privacy too and never pushy."
