it was amazing
Read in June, 2011

This is hands-down one of the best novels to come out of France in the twentieth century. It also serves as an excellent historical document for life in immediate post-war French society. Should be required reading for all serious readers, especially those with interest in twentieth-century feminism, existentialism, and the aftermath of WWII.
