Check out my review of this splendid book on the following link:
As a piano player, I've always been fascinated by Debussy's music. The music was divine and I just had to find out the background of it. So, I went to our local library and got this book.
At first I was charmed. Charmed with the descriptions, with the narration... But, as the plot went by, I've realized that this book is nothing more than a romance novel. A cheap one. Of course, I finished the book, but the only thing this book left me was the impression that Debussy was a deeply immature man and
I read this book some 20 years ago. It’s a biography of France's musician and composer Claude Debussy, written as a romance novel. I remember I borrowed it from a friend and couldn’t put it down until I finished reading it.

This book was an absolute joy to read, and was thoroughly hooked all the way through.
Would definitely get the extra half star if it would allow me (Just can't bring myself to get the full 5* rating though!!!)
