loved it more and more the further in i got, very ironic, often sad and troubling, but always well written
This is the book that would not end, 1000 pages of short stories, and I am compulsive enough that once started, I wanted to read it all, and I did! Most of the stories were pretty good, some were excellent and some were not so good. Many were about the Prussian occupation of France, or about small town French life. Glad I read it, glad its finished!
A bit shell-shocked after so many pages, but it's pretty amazing how well a bunch of Franco-Prussian War era short stories hold up.
