The History of Love
Jan 07, 2009
Intriguing, unpredictable characters converge around the book-within-a-book device. Chapters alternate between first-person narration from the main characters and third-person narrations to fill in the supporting characters' stories. Hooked me right from the first chapter with the amusing narrative of Leo Gursky, the 80-something, semi-retired locksmith who is desparate not to 'disappear.' Recent book group discussion consensus was positive, but we mostly felt that the ending needed a little more tidying.
