message 1: by Ed (new) - rated it 4 stars

Ed Lehman | 1779 comments I read The Lover by Marguerite Duras for week # 22. A young woman living in French-colonial Vietnam falls in love with a rich Chinese man. She is just 16 years-old and tells the story and how it affects her while she also reviews the complicated life of her mother and brothers. Very well written...and there is a sequel I plan to read.

Aglaea | 374 comments I went to add this book, but when scrolling the reviews realised I've seen it as a movie rather than read it. Wonder whether the book would be better, since I thought of the movie as rather intense. Saw it probably ten or so years ago, though.
