This is a very short easy read. I read it in french the first time but later I went back and read it in english. The english translation is very good. While I think this is a fantastic read I wonder if it is one of those books that you have to be in the right mood for. I read this during one of the worst periods of my life and I think it touched me because I could relate to the author's depression and melancholy.
