Wow, just wow. This book weaves together many different threads: a contemporary narrative that takes place in Brooklyn and Paris, a historical account of the French Revolution, music theory, genetics, real historical figures, invented historical figures, magical realism, regular realism, Dante's Divine Comedy, grief, love, suicidal depression and hope, to create a very moving and intricate story. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in France, music, or wants to read a good story of physical and emotional journeys.
