really liked it
Read in December, 2009

Set in an elegant hotel in Paris, the elegance of the Hedgehog follows the life and times of a concierge, a 12 year old girl, and various other interesting and realistic characters who make their residence in this hotel. Satirical, funny and heart breaking all at once but manages to avoid being too cerebral and sentimental. Hedgehog was the #1 seller in France for over six months and I'm thrilled it was translated to English. I look forward to reading the author's first book as well.
