it was amazing
bookshelves: literature

** spoiler alert ** Because sometimes you just have to read about an 17th century perfumer who may or may not be the Anti Christ and goes on a killing spree, before starting aa giant omnisexual fuckfest and being voluntarily cannabilized.

Ah literature. That's why I read you, the class. The class.

message 12: by Lily (new)

Lily Thanks for the review! I just saw the film (directed by Tom Tykwer) and when events that you described started to happen, I wondered if they were also in the book. Apparently they were. Wow. This must be one of the most surreal "nope, that can't be happening" ending for a story.

Manda this review is gold.
