it was amazing
Recommended for: anyone who loves novels and wants a perfect pleasant story
Read in September, 2007

it's like a pleasant conversation with an interesting person. The book can be very literary (as in analyzed as a post modern novel with a literary mystery bla bla) but it is also just a really great read. It's not necessary but it can make the story better if you have read Flaubert.

Quotes masha Liked

Julian Barnes
“Books say: She did this because. Life says: She did this. Books are where things are explained to you; life is where things aren't. I'm not surprised some people prefer books. Books make sense of life. The only problem is that the lives they make sense of are other people's lives, never your own.”
Julian Barnes, Flaubert's Parrot
