Read in May, 2010 — I own a copy


I was recently told that men typically write introspectively and that women write outwardly about the world around them: if this is the case then I am ashamed to say that I particularly like very masculine books and this is one of them.

This is Le Clézio's first novel and it feels that way but does anyone ever really get tired of poetic, introspective, observations about time, memory and death - Particularly death. The word death must be one of the most used words in this book which is something I found oddly comforting.

basically the book reads like Hesse or Mann, the prose is in places incredible, highly recommended.

Maureen "Does anyone ever really get tired of poetic, introspective, observations about time, memory and death". It didn't go down so well at my last job interview, but what can I say, it was a tough crowd.
