really liked it
Read in July, 2007

I would have liked this book more had I actually read any of the authors Huysmans writes about in the (long) chapters dedicated to Des Essientes' library. That said, I love the intricate descriptions and surreal passages - it's perfect for anyone who fancies himself disconnected from "base" society.
