it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-fiction

Matthieu Zela is 256 years old. He does not know why or how but around age 50 he just stopped aging. Thoughout his life he manages to keep in touch with the progeny of his brother, Tomas, who all seem to have unusually short lives. Matthieu tells us his life story in vignettes that center around his many wifes and many nephews, along with the story of his first love that is told throughout the entire book. I found this book addictive. It is well written and engaging.
